Like portrait painting, massage demands skillful hands, bold strokes, and a subject who can sit still. Become a human canvas with today's Groupon: for $35, you get a 60-minute Swedish or deep-tissue massage at Salon ji in Lenexa (a $70 value).
Salon ji's licensed massage therapists relieve muscular tension with soothing 60-minute Swedish or deep-tissue massages delivered in a chic salon environment. During a Swedish massage, clients can relax as one of the seasoned therapists employs a quintet of long, flowing stroke styles to reduce pain, increase venous and lymphatic circulation, and make physiques feel more comfortable than lounging on a mattress stuffed with Lay-Z-Boys. Alternatively, deep-tissue work digs down with direct pressure to lower layers of muscle and connective tissue to relieve severe tension. Because of the intense nature of the deliberate, focused work, therapists often recommend deep-tissue massages for patients who experience consistent pain, those who have sustained a physical injury, and those who regularly engage in heavy physical activity, such as athletes or pie-eating contest champions.
Before the service, patrons relax in armchairs, sip complimentary coffee, or gargle the theme to Home Improvement while taking advantage of the salon's free WiFi network. Contemporary artwork and mirrors stud the parlor's plum-colored walls, lending Salon ji a hip, upscale vibe.
When guests walk out of Salon Ji, they always feel different from when they entered, whether they’re reveling in newfound confidence due to a fresh hairstyle or an aura of relaxation after a soothing massage. In addition to cuts and color, stylists sweep hair into elegant updos, add extensions, or decorate locks with trendy feathers, which can help clients establish a good rapport with neighborhood sparrows. Nail specialists treat hands and feet to mani-pedis using regular or long-lasting Shellac polish, which remains chip-free for up to two weeks. The staff further pampers guests with facials and body waxing.
Pendant lights cast a soft glow over Salon Ji’s sleek purple-gray walls, which contrast with a collection of vibrant paintings. Waiting guests can cozy up in modern black armchairs and browse the web with complimentary WiFi while sipping coffee.
