Stress is to blame for everything from the stomach ulcers that take the fun out of eating to the forehead veins that take the fun out of head-butting. Keep calm with this Groupon.

During the Topps Pedicure, a nail technician dunks feet in a skin-softening footbath laden with soothing bath salts before shaping nails and pushing back cuticles. A foot massage readies toes for the OPI polish of the client's choice. Next, clients can choose between the light to medium pressure of a Swedish massage or a shiatsu massage before indulging in a relaxing 45-minute facial.
Topps Salon Day Spa
The floor-to-ceiling front window at Topps Salon Day Spa lets in natural sunlight that bounces off the pale-yellow walls and light wooden floors. Upon entering the airy salon, guests see shelves full of pink, purple, and green Pureology bottles—with a few products by American Crew and Framesi sprinkled in—as well as a counter with complimentary coffee. A row of six styling chair lies to the left, where staff draw on their certifications and training in Brazilian Blowout, Vidal Sassoon, and Framesi to revamp hair.
In the day spa, aestheticians wax away unwanted hair and rejuvenate skin with facials for both men and women, while massage therapists relieve aches with Swedish and shiatsu massages. Nail technicians contribute manicures and pedicures topped off with OPI polish, or create nail art recreating each scene from the Bayeux Tapestry.
