Clay is a powerful material that provides the raw material for mud wrestling, ceramics, and the impressive financial portfolio of the Creature from the Black Lagoon. Harness strong silt with today's Groupon: for $60, you get a Bentonite clay body mask at Pura Vida Wellness Spa in Pinellas Park (a $120 value).
Kathleen Leslie, owner of Pura Vida Wellness Spa and licensed massage therapist, draws upon holistic methods to whisk away stress with a slew of doting services. Pamperers cloak pores with the naturally healing Bentonite clay body mask for 90 minutes. This mask is designed to erase damage inflicted by physical ailments and run-ins with malfunctioning pottery wheels. The relaxing loam lures toxins, impurities, and heavy metals from epidermal dwelling places while scalp-and-foot treatments placate oft-ignored areas. Fingers flutter across backs during a subsequent hydrating massage that relaxes frames and exorcizes tension built up during fast-paced firecracker auctions.
Pura Vida Wellness Spa
Led by massage therapist and colon hydrotherapist Kathleen Leslie, the natural-care practitioners at Pura Vida Wellness Spa specialize in pharmaceutical-free healing. Services include detoxifying therapies such as infrared-sauna sessions and several massage modalities and medical-grade skin care and waxing along with ionic foot detoxes. Their bread-and-butter service, though, is colonic irrigation, which Leslie's team uses to address numerous ailments, such as bloating, migraines, and insomnia.
