Some say the secret to health is laughter, and others claim best results come from laughing into the buffing auger of a Zamboni. Restore your sense of well-being sans ice resurfacing with today's Groupon to Skin Spa's Midtown location. This Groupon will also be valid at the Flatiron/Chelsea location when it opens in July. Choose between the following options:
• For $39, you get a 60-minute Swedish massage (an $80 value).
• For $49, you get a 60-minute deep-tissue massage (a $100 value).
The tranquility experts at Skin Spa relieve stressed souls with rejuvenating head-to-toe massages. The customized Swedish massage transports life vessels into a deep state of relaxation with medium-pressured gliding strokes and kneading that coaxes anxiety and muscle aches from the body, forcing them to stand in line at the post office at noon on a workday. During the athlete-friendly deep-tissue massage, a sinew tamer targets chronic pain rendezvous points with strong pressure and slow, concentrated strokes, releasing tension and untying stubborn double knots. Skin Spa's muscle makeovers leave clients ready to tackle the stressors of the outside world, such as approaching deadlines and approaches by vacuum salesmen disguised as food-cart vendors.
Escape the honks of car horns and bustle of the city in Skin Spa’s relaxing environs, complete with cream-colored walls, wood floors, and a light-filled lobby. Patrons can slip away to a cozy bungalow for the treatment and emerge feeling refreshed and significantly less likely to start fights with dive-bombing pigeons.
Skin Spa New York
Skin Spa New York's seven Manhattan locations all represent the same business, but you wouldn't know it by stepping inside. That's because the spa strives to imbue each spot with the feel of its surrounding neighborhood, whether it's the bustling atmosphere of Midtown or the artsy character of Chelsea. Whatever the address, every studio brims with a mix of pamper-centric spa and results-oriented med-spa services using products such as PCA Clinical Skin Care and glo therapeutics. Private massages and full-body waxing complement the purifying effects of facials, which target individual issues such as blemishes and fine lines. Meanwhile, higher-tech treatments can revamp the entire body without a single incision, thanks to light-based techniques such as the collagen-boosting Laser Genesis, skin-tightening Titan laser, and anti-aging Photolight and Limelight facials, which remove signs of sun damage. A company-wide collection of more than 20 lasers can help clients rid themselves of hair by targeting and destroying the follicles that grow it. A plentiful stock of skincare serums is also available for purchase, allowing clients to keep their skin pristine at home.
