A proper body scrub can rejuvenate the spirit and slough away fouling flesh barnacles accumulated from a lengthy oceanic swim or a quick dip in little Billy's aquarium. Counteract the sea's weathering effects with today's Groupon: for $55 you get an Organic Oasis Body Treatment (a $120 value) at The Salon & Day Spa at The Scottsdale Plaza Resort
The Salon & Day Spa at The Scottsdale Plaza Resort pampers all gracious guests from the point of entry to the moment of serene departure. During the 55-minute Organic Oasis Body Treatment , guests select their preferred aromas, and then relax on the table while a certified technician applies an organic exfoliating scrub. Organic oils of ylang ylang, bergamot, and warming ginger improve tone and hydration, while a sabai herbal ball, applied along acupressure zones of the body, increases blood flow and lymphatic drainage. This long, smooth-spanning treatment also folds in the slow-cooked benefits of reducing cellulite, stimulating new skin-cell growth, and introducing the mind to new mental planes, such as imaginary jumbo or subconscious tiltrotors.
To fully imbibe the scrubbed sensations, guests are advised to arrive 15–30 minutes before their scheduled appointment, during which they can take a detoxifying, preparatory dip in the dry sauna room and cooling shower quarters. Prior to entering the organic oasis, guests will also be able to change into a plush robe and slippers, and then relax in the spa's tranquil lounge. Lockers are available for storage of clothes and briefcases full of crackers. Call ahead to schedule an appointment.
The Salon & Day Spa at The Scottsdale Plaza Resort
A lush estate of 40 acres near Camelback Mountain surrounds The Scottsdale Plaza Resort, which, in turn, surrounds the Salon & Day Spa at The Scottsdale Plaza Resort. Inside, the staff greets every visitor with a robe and slippers to wear during a recommended cool shower to initiate detoxification.
The packed service menu plies muscles with six types of soothing and therapeutic bodywork and an infrared sauna, and salon professionals master current haircut and nailcare trends. Stylists deftly transition from creating complex weaves for female clients to trimming beards for gentlemen, and aestheticians tailor men's skincare regimens from products rich with jojoba oil, papaya, and soothing cherry enzymes that ensure prompt, rugged five o'clock shadows.
