A day at the spa grants sweet respite from a fast-paced world of errands, deadlines, and books on tape read by auctioneers. Savor serenity without speediness, thanks to today's Groupon to Salon Daniel in McLean. Choose between the following options:
• For $25, you get $50 worth of waxing services. Waxing services are for women only.
• For $47, you get a one-hour Swedish or deep-tissue massage (a $95 value).
Salon Daniel specializes in making each visitor’s vessel feel like a newly constructed bliss temple, helping skin look its sleekest and bodies feel like bodies of younger humans. During hair-removal treatments, an experienced aesthetician peels warm layers of wax from female skin to uproot unsightly epidermal weeds. Lips and chins ($15) can easily be made fuzz-free, and eyebrows ($25) may be fashionably arched to instantly take conversations from tame to tongue-in-cheek. Sleekify necks ($25), full faces ($55), sides of faces ($20), sides of sides of faces, and underarms ($25), or smooth out larger skin planes such as full arms ($45) and bikini belly terrains ($45). As an additional perk, Groupon customers will receive $25 toward either a one-and-a-half-hour massage or a microdermabrasion treatment, which can be used during your next visit.
For backs in need of coddling, massage therapists employ firm, flowy Swedish strokes to loosen snug sinews and stimulate blood flow. The techniques used in a deep-tissue massage are similar, though pressure is more acute, aiming attention at breaking up rock-hard tension caused by extensive exercise or days spent working out in the gym’s crawlspace.
