Lifting with your nails and gnawing on your own back can wreak havoc on a body. Restore corporal temples to their original splendor with today’s Groupon: for $48, you get three ginger-tea manicures and three 10-minute massages (a $96 value) at Quince Spa on Texas Street.
Quince Spa’s beautification savants customize each spa treatment to fit the individual needs of every exterior. Keep fingers steeped in finery with three ginger-tea manicures (a $22 value each), as the spa’s technicians immerse fatigued digits in a ginger-tea tincture that draws out toxins before shaping cuticles and trimming and polishing nails. A hydrating dollop of lotion imported from Africa blesses skin with the smoothing touch of shea butter, and 10-minute hand and arm massages (a $10 value each) can relieve stress and muscle tightness accumulated over years on the national spelling-bee circuit.
Quince Spa’s technicians ply their aesthetic trade within the spa’s softly lit, zen-like confines. Relax on cushy massage chairs as complimentary beverages attend to parched lips and in-house haiku poets attend to parched souls.
From pink martini sparkle mani-pedis to signature facials, Quince Spa offers exotic treatments in an equally exotic atmosphere. This dimly lit spa exudes tranquility, offering clients a haven to plop down on a cozy massage table for a hot stone massage or let their feet soak in wooden foot baths while they sip complimentary beverages and recline in leather chairs that are partitioned off by Shoji screens. Using products from OPI, Havainas, and Essie, Nail technicians perform ginger tea bamboo sugar mani-pedis, as well as Japanese Yuzu citrus callous removal pedicures and gentlemen’s manicures. Massage therapists, meanwhile, harmonize the mind and body with massages and foot reflexology treatments. The staff also offers eyebrow tinting and facials, helping clients look younger while undoing damage caused by UV rays that whisper insults into pores as they penetrate skin.
