Body wraps were invented by the Egyptians, who somehow knew mankind would one day need mummies to play the saxophone solos in Halloween party songs. Do the mash with today's Groupon: for $29, you get a Formostar infrared body wrap at Planet Beach Contempo Spa's location on West State Street (a $99 value).
Planet Beach is a futuristic relaxation station that pampers guests with scores of services, including the newest Formostar infrared body wrap. Each 60-minute therapy session commences when a skilled technician cloaks thighs, hips, abdomens, and arms in six silicone treatment pads designed to increase metabolism and contour bodily curves. Once activated, the pads release far infrared heat that can help burn calories and reduce cellulite with noninvasive force, all while slimming bodily appearances.
Planet Beach shelters shape-shifting hopefuls in its sedative, modern surroundings. Here, guests comfortably unwind throughout the duration of the wrap, watching cable television, reading glossy magazines, or listening to soothing music involving gratuitous dolphin chants at their discretion.
Planet Beach Contempo Spa
A wildly successful alternative to traditional day spas—its more than 300 locations blanket 36 states and half a dozen countries—Planet Beach Contempo Spa is a futuristic relaxation station where state-of-the-art machines administer all the spa and tanning services. These friendly automatons sometimes replace familiar treatments, as in the Luminous facial, a light-based service that delivers blemish-busting results similar to those of a conventional facial. But other equipment maps out new spa territory entirely: the Hydro-Derma Fusion chamber moisturizes the whole body with nutrient-rich steam in order to offset the effects of a dry climate or a rear-end collision with a salt truck. Other machines whiten teeth, spray tan skin, and massage muscles. Planet Beach operates on a gym-style membership system, meaning that members purchase packages or pay flat monthly rates. As members spend more time at the spa, they get to know the helpful assistants who are always on hand to demonstrate how to use the equipment without activating its ability to cry.
