Palm reading provides vague answers about where a man is going, but the art of foot reading conjures undeniable proof that he just walked through wet cement. Treat hands and feet to a healthy future with today's Groupon: for $49, you get a signature manicure and an ultimate pedicure at Moksha Spa & Wellness Center in Methuen (a $105 total value).
The nail techs at Moksha usher clients into serene states with manicures and pedicures enhanced by soothing massages and natural, proprietary blends of botanicals. The mani-pedi package exposes guests to a spasperience lasting upwards of an hour but less than two holiday seasons, leaving all paws pruned and painted and limbs as relaxed as drunken sloths. The ultimate pedicure first plunks paws into a footbath infused with tailored essential oils, then a leg massage and reflexology treatment combine their powers to improve circulation. A mask made of honey, sandalwood, and other goodies hides modest knees and detoxifies leg skin. The signature manicure also features massage, along with an exfoliating hand treatment that smoothes and hydrates.
Moksha Spa & Wellness Center's private manicure-and-pedicure room envelops fingers, toes, and their owners in tranquility with an abundance of greenery, as well as soothing music to coddle eardrums and fragrant candles to pamper nosedrums. Perched atop a luxuriously padded bench, clients dunk their feet into a marble pedicure tub and slip into a state of relaxation.
Moksha Spa and Wellness Center
Within Moksha Spa and Wellness Center's 5,000 square feet of tranquil, Asian-themed space, staffers inspire well-being with holistic therapies. Reiki healing aims to clear blocked energy pathways, and shirodhara—an ancient ayurvedic technique in which herbal oil flows over the forehead while a staff member massages the face, scalp, neck, and shoulders—calms the body and mind. Couples enjoy candlelight and a rose-petal bath in the massage room, where therapists wrap bodies in organic exfoliants or detoxifying clay.
The spa radiates with color, from brilliant oranges and yellows in the reception area to vibrant red sofas with metallic accents. Cheerful lime-green walls surround the pedicure room, where guests ascend to a cushioned and tiled throne for foot pampering and scepter filing.
