Like zipping up in a cozy sleeping bag, body wraps shield the wearer in a warm, soothing embrace that is confusing to passing raccoons. Outsmart Mother Nature with today's Groupon: for $80, you get a hydrating body wrap (a $135 value) and a reflexology massage (a $60 value) at Skin Wellness in Fremont (a $195 total value).
The expert aestheticians at Skin Wellness transform bodies using organic ingredients and a custom approach. Upon arrival, fortuitous physiques partake of complimentary tea or strawberry-infused water before being escorted into an intimate room where they may relax as stress melts from their muscles like butter from a snowball. During the 50-minute hydrating treatment, spa savants begin by buffing bodies with natural ingredients to oust expired cells before a thermal wrap and a blanket ensconce torso and limbs in a moisturizing cocoon of warmth. As the treatment settles into skin cells, a therapist takes to the toes for a rejuvenating 30-minute reflexology massage. Like the self-destruct button on an evil robot, the treatment claims to soothe a range of problems by pressing on one small spot, focusing on pressure points in the feet that are believed to correspond to specific organs. Finally, a soothing scalp massage calms fretting follicles as the wrap sets, leaving the entire body relaxed and rejuvenated.
Though Skin Wellness sometimes features a discounted price online, this Groupon still offers the best deal available.
The staff members at Skin Wellness shy away from using products made with chemicals or preservatives; instead, they harness an armory of all-natural and organic ingredients. These come in handy during their services, which range from skin-soothing facials to hydrating body wraps to Just For Men treatments designed for actual men instead of two kids in a trench coat. They customize each treatment to each client's needs, and they strive to educate their clients on how to maintain healthy skin at home.
