The world’s first day-spa owner invited clients to “experience the healing powers of this here tar pit,” which was bad news for their clientele but invaluable for modern-day archeologists. Preserve well-being without becoming permanently preserved with today’s Groupon to Shear Dimensions in Cranston. Choose between the following services:
- For $40, you get an oil-wrap body treatment (an $85 value).
- For $30, you get a men’s facial with pressure-points massage (a $60 value).
Shear Dimensions has served as a humble haven of beauty and relaxation for more than 30 years. Choose to cocoon the body with a one-hour oil-wrap body treatment that smoothes and silkifies skin suits. From nimble necks to twinkling toes, the body is invigoratingly exfoliated and then slathered with aromatherapy oils.
Alternately, escape from the daily barrage of errands and aggressive street mimes with a one-hour men’s facial, which includes a deep cleansing, breakout degunking, the extraction of any ingrown hairs or blackheads, and a balancing mask. Finally, a pressure-point massage with aromatherapy trumps tension and exposes troves of valuable underface relics.
While offering an armada of beautifying treatments, Shear Dimensions’ highly skilled staff of epidermal enchanters are eager to help facial façades and bone blankets feel at home by offering them a complimentary cup of coffee.
From the outside it looks like a single-family home, complete with a brick chimney jutting from the roof and a garage in back. But since 1979, the only occupants of the house have been the barbers, stylists, and aestheticians of Shear Dimensions. The staff is populated by such veterans as Pat Petronio, a barber who's been cutting hair for more than 40 years. Elsewhere on staff you'll find licensed massage therapist Donna Celona, who is well-versed not only in massage techniques, but in linguistics as well; the Brazilian native speaks five languages fluently, and can perform four distinct types of massages.
