Though best known for expanding the limits of human thought, the great philosophers were also ardent proponents of skin treatments, rarely furrowing their brows without first applying a cucumber mask. Today’s Groupon will wipe out your own philosophical furrows: for $55, you get $120 toward services at Spa Já. You also get 30% off product purchases on the day of your visit. Located at the corner of 56th Street and Eighth Avenue, this stylish spa is renowned for its natural treatments, organic products, and focus on customer satisfaction, and less known for its haunted attic.
Use your Groupon toward any of the pampering treatments offered. Eliminate unwelcome fuzzies in one fell swoop with a waxing service, which can run between $20 for areas like lips and sides to $75+ for a men’s bikini. Get a revitalizing facial ($65 to $160+) like a soothing Brazilian facial, smoothing acne treatment, or microdermabrasion. Only top organic products are used, offering your hide the gentlest and most natural treatment available, while avoiding the harsh chemicals that may or may not cause Hulk Syndrome. There are more hands-on treatments like manicures and pedicures ($25+), as well as relaxing massages ($65+) spanning multiple styles including deep tissue, hot stone, prenatal, and more.
Open since 2005, Spa Já has quickly gained a reputation for its focus on wellness, so grab this deal to point that focus toward yourself. Get waxed, relaxed, rebuffed, or face fluffed. If you already possess the coolness of an unpickled pickle, gift this Groupon to a tired friend, deserving Mother, or tense pet monkey that can pass as a human.

Visitors to Spa Ja pass beneath a black-and-red façade inspired by the wood-scrap decorations of favelas, or shanty towns, in founder Giovanna Kupfer’s native Brazil. Within the minimalist tiled interior, therapists wield exclusively organic products and natural treatments that can bolster whole-body wellness without invasive procedures such as force-feeding skin cells broccoli.
