Spending a day at a spa is a tranquil experience surpassed only by swimming in a pool filled with mashed potatoes or having a hand model slap you to sleep. Tingle with beautiful relaxation with today’s Groupon: for $119, you get a four-hour Spa Heaven package at Skin & Beyond Day Spa in Franklin (a $300 value). The package includes:
- A hydrating Deep Radiance facial
- 75-minute detoxifying mud wrap
- 60-minute hot-oil body treatment
- Lunch from Jason’s Deli<p>
Medical aesthetician Martha Revis pours 20 years of experience into Skin & Beyond Day Spa’s four-hour, full-body treatments. Each Spa Heaven package begins with an anti-aging Deep Radiance facial that floods dry pores with moisture. Aestheticians design the facial based on a careful skin analysis as well as a random-focus group poll, selecting tonics from scientific innovator Jan Marini Skin Research to complement aromatherapeutic botanical salves from Yon-Ka. Following the facial, gentle hands buff dead skin from the entire body and cocoon limbs in warm layers of mud and seaweed. Freshly exfoliated skin chugs minerals from the clay, belting out drinking songs while heat and seaweed leech out impurities. A therapist then begins the hot-oil body treatment, reinvigorating circulation with the technique’s five flowing strokes and loosening knots with warm oil drizzled from a special candle. The sojourn concludes with a lunch of salad, soups, and sandwiches, catered by Jason’s Deli.
Skin & Beyond Day Spa
"We are not about spa trends," explains Martha Revis, medical aesthetician and owner of Skin & Beyond Day Spa, who fills her spa with tried-and-true methods for boosting outer beauty. She leads her staff in removing signs of wear and tear with microdermabrasion treatments, facials, and corrective peels, and they combat stubborn inches with body-contouring wraps. During makeovers, the team pulls from glo minerals' mineral-based products to bring subtle enhancement to eyes, cheekbones, and lucha libre masks.
