Facials and massages often go hand in hand, much like young children and fistfuls of jam or Fortune 500 CEO's and their mothers. Enjoy the pairing of two relaxing services with today's Groupon: for $49, you get a 30-minute express facial (a $45 value) and a 60-minute Swedish massage (a $70 value) at Teddie Kossof Salon & Spa in Northfield (a $115 total value).
Teddie Kossof Salon & Spa, which found its way into the pages of Salon Today 200 in 2009, invites patrons to unwind inside a beautifully bricked, three-story spa stronghold. After analyzing each customer's face, an aesthetician selects the appropriate skin cleanser and applies it using gentle, circular hand motions that clear off any lingering makeup and occasionally summon landing planes. A toner and mask then settle into place, allowing facial terrain to soak up cheery, youthful personalities while a hand massage brings the procedure to a conclusion. Biotone creams create a hypoallergenic foundation for the Swedish massage, a one-hour session that crushes stress with traditional effleurage, petrissage, and tapotement techniques.
