Neglected faces act out at inappropriate times, such as smiling through sad movies and winking on the witness stand. Make your face behave with today’s Groupon: for $30, you get a 60-minute customized Aveda Facial at Tranquil Touch Spa (a $60 value).
Owner Melinda Smith put years of study in reflexology and massage therapy to good use in founding Tranquil Touch Spa, which pampers Fort Wayne–area customers with a variety of therapeutic skin and body services. The 60-minute Aveda customized facial coddles visages with a massage and treatment mask, which sends skin into a state of relaxation akin to floating through a cloud in a beanbag chair. Warm towels open up pores, which release any leftover impurities under the precise handiwork of a technician armed with an astute knowledge of facial needs and beautifying tactics. As pleasant aromas set a tone of relaxation and comfort, skinscapes absorb moisture and become smoother, allowing clients to put away their chisels and instead gently ply their softened features into favorable expressions.
Tranquil Touch Spa
Melinda Smith started dreaming about feet in high school. Confused by the recurring visions, she asked a teacher for advice and began to study reflexology—the practice of gently massaging pressure points along the feet in order to promote well-being across the entire body. Melinda’s first encounter with the healing bodywork technique cemented her resolve to study massage therapy, and she eventually founded her own studio with numerous modalities on the menu.
The spa includes four private treatment rooms, each of which is designed to channel one of the four elements (earth, fire, air, and water) that Aristotle discovered with his particle accelerator. The rooms’ different energies serve different purposes—with the earth room aimed at relaxing minds and the fire room intended to cultivate inner strength. Outside these rooms, the spa's aestheticians and technicians incorporate botanically derived Aveda products into skincare treatments and paint nails with chip-resistant OPI gel polishes.
