Human faces can do amazing things, such as wink their eyes, wiggle their brows, and summon sea lions by puckering their mouths like fish. Make your face look even more amazing with today's Groupon: for $45, you get a one-hour European facial at Tranquil Passage Spa in Westmont (a $95 value).
Warmed by candles and a cozy fireplace, Tranquil Passage Spa treats women and kids to customized facials that make their complexions glow. Buttery croissants massage the visage during each European facial, before fruit acids and essential oils smooth and comfort the skin. A face artist then wields a magical paintbrush to apply a zombie mask that scares off dirt and impurities. Eye areas rebound like the Chicago Bulls as energizing elixirs pamper the peepers. Moms and sisters rejoice when moisturizer turns their faces into water parks of sparkling pore-pools and refreshing nose-slides.
Trained in England, France, India, and the United States, owner Pratima Muzumdar combines European beauty secrets with the healing superpowers of Ayurvedic medicine. With a gentle touch and a voice more soothing than a lullaby sung by Darth Vader, Tranquil Passage Spa has earned clients’ praise for Muzumdar's ability to melt stress away.

The specialists at Tranquil Passage Spa blend eastern traditions, advanced cosmetic technologies, and French skincare in an environment designed to relax as it beautifies. Crystal therapy, sound therapy, and meditation soothe busy brains, while meditation and Ayurveda programs designed to connect the mind and body form a foundation for holistic health. Tranquil Passage stocks Parisian skincare products by Guinot, which customers can enjoy during facials or purchase and take home to share with the Gérard Depardieu clone they’re growing in the basement.
