After a long day of besieging steppe settlements, the Mongol hordes liked to kick back with a vigorous massage, a copy of the Daily Khan, and a nice warm glass of fermented yak's milk. Conquer your own serenity with today’s Groupon: for $75, you get a one-hour facial, a one-hour full-body massage, and an eyebrow shaping at Setareh Day Spa in Ellicott City (a $149 value).
Setareh Day Spa's well-trained staff soothes troubled skin, achy muscles, and stressed-out clients with a range of healing services performed in a relaxing full-service spa environment. The body-loosening Silver package includes a one-hour visage-reviving European facial and a one-hour Swedish massage (a $129 value), and Groupon buyers also get an eyebrow threading (a $20 value) to gently transform fuzzy brows into shapely, eye-defining arches. Therapeutic for all skin types, the European facial combines an epidermis-feeding series of treatments including an antistress massage, re-animating mask, and gentle steam cleaning to clear skin congestion, polish away dullness, and revive radiance. A Swedish massage uses long, smooth strokes to relieve tendon tension and break down knotted muscle clusters, leaving freshly rubbed clients nimble enough to clean house at the speed limbo semifinals. Eyebrow threading solves the brow hair problems of clients with sensitive skin or wax allergies by wicking away extra fuzz with long cotton twine, removing whole rows of hair at once. This painless procedure results in only minimal redness and sensitivity, unlike traditional wax hair removal, which often irritates the surrounding skin with its incessant bragging and one-upmanship.
Setareh Day Spa
Branching from a hallway adorned with hanging plants are private treatment rooms painted a soft sage green. In these tranquil nooks, aestheticians perform various facials that imbue expressions with youthful radiance and clarity. Several facials include steam cleaning, extractions, staring contests, and masks; more specialized services, such as back facials and anti-aging facials, nurture skin with products of marine origin. Massage therapists direct their attention to knots below the skin with Swedish, deep-tissue, and hot-stone massages.
