Massages and facials were developed by NASA to help astronauts cope with edgy Tang-induced sugar highs, lack of ESPN, and predatory aliens stowed in the hangar bay. Soothe yourself outside the soul-crushing abyss of outer space with today’s Groupon: for $125, you get a Spa Element massage and facial with haircut, color, and style (up to a $370 value) at The Face & Body Spa, located in Yardley.
The Face & Body Spa delivers a full array of body- and face-focused services designed to keep people saturated with relaxation. The one-hour massage pairs soothing effleurage with a customized mash of tranquilizing ingredients tailored to each client's particular condition ($110). Additional blends abound in the one-hour facial ($110), which is set to cleanse pouty, polluted countenances and effect a refreshed façade. Clients can highlight their newfound bodily calm with hair services, beginning with a shot of shampoo straight to the scalp. The stylist manicures head lawns ($65–$90) to match the client's personality, and enhances post-cut coiffures with a choice of color treatment, such as gloss/glaze ($35 and up), single-process touch-up ($45 and up), single-process full color ($60 and up), or foil highlights or lowlights ($60 and up). New 'dos are set with a blow-out, curling, or flat-iron styling.
Casting an eye toward environmental sustainability, The Face & Body Spa powers itself with wind energy, like all self-respecting tumbleweeds.
The Face & Body Spa
Stylists and aestheticians at The Face & Body Spa cultivate coiffures and nourish skin using products with an organic, vegan focus. That means that body scrubs exfoliate with organic sugarcane, nails glimmer with SpaRitual vegan polish, and hair color is ammonia-free, an eco-friendly approach that makes pampering sessions feel simultaneously as virtuous and enjoyable as volunteering at Willy Wonka's soup kitchen.
The spa's Eastern influence shows up in both the services—body workers use acupuncture and Reiki energy therapy—and the decor. Stone buddha heads broadcast calm throughout lounge areas, and live bamboo and potted trees add a minimalistic reminder of the staff's natural inspirations.
