Without restorative spa treatments, human bodies become sluggish and lose momentum, eventually stalling like a Frankenstein with an empty lightning tank. Evade angry peasants with today’s Groupon: for $79, you get a one-hour Swedish massage ($80 value) and a one-hour signature facial ($80 value) at Pink Orchid MedSpa in Huntingdon Valley.
The Pink Orchid MedSpa, an extension of the Women’s Health Network regional Obstetric and Gynecological center, combines specialty medical service and traditional spa treatments, all under the watchful eye of a medical director. The Swedish massage rebalances minds and soothes muscles with 50–55 minutes of long, light movements to improve circulation followed by deeper, muscle-loosening motions performed with Swedish meatball gloves, with 5–10 minutes for removal and re-donning of your spa robe. For visages in need of perking up or calming down, the signature facial tackles individuals' specific skin issues. Aestheticians first identify problem pores under a magnifying glass, whisking away whiteheads and blackheads and exfoliating dead skin before massaging mugs into relaxed, doughy contentment. To finish, the aesthetician coats the face in a mask of Germaine de Capuccini skincare products specifically chosen to nourish each client's particular skin type.
Prior to any spa treatment, patients complete a clinical questionnaire to give therapists a better understanding of their bodies’ specific stressors, imbalances, and tickle zones. The premassaged can then enjoy water, juice, and fresh fruit, comfortably ensconced in slippers and robe all the while. After the session, complimentary hot tea or coffee gives the stomach a quick perk-up.
