Although your body is a temple, covering yourself in bits of stained glass and swallowing thousands of candles has yet to be proven an effective beautification method. Shine up your shrine with today's Groupon: for $49, you get a custom facial with a head and foot massage at Orchid Bloom Spa in Los Altos (a $100 value).
The professional aestheticians at Orchid Bloom Spa customize face-cleansing treatments to tackle skin's ailments during a relaxing one-hour session. Staffers match each mug-scrubbing treatment to patrons' particular skin ailments, treating a variety of botherations such as premature aging, acne, patchy skin, and burrowing face gerbils.
While creams and tonics adorn visages, gentle hands traipse across heads, necks, shoulders, and feet in massages designed to whisk away accumulated stress. Skin specialists then remove the mask from the face with hopes of unearthing an epidermal surface smoother than a cloud after its Brazilian wax. Before sessions commence, guests can lounge, read, or do the loco-motion in a sunlit waiting area while sipping on a complimentary glass of organic juice.
Orchid Bloom Spa
Orchid Bloom Spa inspires beauty and balance with practices from Thailand and Hungary. A Thai herbal massage relieves deep-seated tension with intense stretches as the essential oils of tumeric, lemongrass, and bergamot tickle the inner senses. Treatments deploy a selection of organic Hungarian products and Thailand's Harnn products, which the spa stocks for use at home or after a hard day at the abacus. Upon arriving at the spa, clients can sip a soothing strawberry beverage while relaxing in the sunlit waiting area.
