The world's first day-spa owner invited clients to "experience the healing powers of this here tar pit," which was bad news for the clientele but invaluable for modern-day archaeologists. Preserve well-being without becoming permanently preserved with today's Groupon: for $105, you get a 24-karat gold collagen mask facial, shampoo and style, and 30-minute massage at the Garden Spa, located inside the Memorial Hermann Wellness Center (a $210 value).
Garden Spa rejuvenates scrunched musculoskeletal systems and prettifies paltry body parts with a flock of relaxing beauty services. The expansive 5,200-square-foot facility implements herbal care inspired by the traditions of Father Sebastian Kneipp.
Visage-transforming virtuosos will take a Midas touch to lucky faces, applying a 24-karat gold collagen mask facial to tone skin and allay the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, ensuring countenances look bright, hydrated, and good enough to be presented at a fancy auction ($150). During a half-hour massage, a therapist executes vigorous yet placid pressure, unknotting tense muscles like laces on a shoe made of muscles ($40). Finally, coifs will be cleansed and styled ($20) to leave customers with a head-to-toe appearance of serenity and sophistication.
