Before its purifying attributes were discovered, humans only used clay as a building material, nautical ballast, and cocktail ingredient. Soothe your soles with nature's mud-of-all-trades and today's Groupon: for $60, you get a detox clay treatment (a $170 value) with reflexology techniques at Tommi's Salon and Spa on Chestnut Street.
Tommi's detox clay treatment is a skin-soothing, stress-relieving treatment that helps clients purify their bodies and minds. A customized blend of minerals, marine algae, and warmed clay is applied to the skin, clearing pores of oils, residue, and pungent artisanal cheeses. As the clay does its janitorial work, your therapist will apply the principles of reflexology to your hardworking soulsack using stress-melting pressure-point therapy and holistic therapeutic touches. Don't be embarrassed if you fall asleep during your treatment—unless, of course, you're a sleep yodeler.
The minimalist-modern décor at Tommi's Salon and Spa matches its laid-back, casually luxurious vibe, tranquilizing clients with translucent paneled doors, ultramodern sconce lighting, and cream-and-clay natural-tone walls. Seize today's Groupon and head to Tommi's to center your chakra, relax, and finally drain all the maple syrup from your system.
Though most reviews available for Tommi's Salon and Spa speak of the talents of specific staff, some Citysearchers also had glowing comments about the salon itself:
The three-story Tommi Studio grants patrons access to beauty treatments, a photography studio, and wedding services all under one roof. Inside the pulchritude paradise—dubbed a "beauty heaven" by Allure magazine—trained stylists dress tresses, and massage therapists melt tension from muscles with Swedish, pressure-point, or deep-tissue kneadings. Aestheticians blend treatments for custom facials and build baking-soda volcanoes at the spa lab as guests unwind with a cup of hot tea in the environmental holding area. The aesthetic experts can also coat keratin in pretty polish at one of six pedicure stations featuring aromatherapy footbaths or take advantage of the third-floor sanctuary's vaulted ceilings to amplify impromptu rap battles.
