Holistic healing and modern science can be more effective when combined, much like diet and exercise or a bicycle and a team of sled dogs. Indulge in doubly powerful pampering with today's Groupon: for $45, you get a one-hour polarity or yoga facial at Tranquil Passage Spa in Westmont (a $95 value).
Tranquil Passage Spa's aestheticians marry contemporary French skincare serums from Guinot Paris with the ancient Indian practice of Ayurveda in snug, cottage-like quarters designed exclusively for women and children. After the polarity facial's deep pore cleansing, a polarity-therapy practitioner plies the skin with soft touches across key points, relaxing muscles and erasing warts incurred by kissing the wrong frogs. Alternatively, the yoga facial aims to unite mind, body, and spirit with a custom blend of botanical extracts and essential oils. Relaxation agents pluck from several traditions to induce optimal serenity, fabricating soothing imagery with visualization prompts, targeting vital energy centers with crystal therapy, and setting the body humming to pleasing tones with sound therapy.The spa's staff aim to educate as much as to pamper, conducting all treatments in close consultation with clients amid cushy armchairs and an electric fireplace.
