Before spa services, humanity was stuck with uncomfortable de-juventating treatments such as grandpa-serum facials, boa-constrictor body wraps, and hot-gravel massages. Release centuries of stress with today’s Groupon: for $40, you get a 75-minute massage and foot reflexology combo at Uptown Face and Body Care in Montrose (an $85 value).
Breathe easy as you enter one of Uptown's private treatment rooms and brace your body for a tsunami of serenity. This 75-minute vacation to the realm of internal relaxation begins with a Swedish or deep-tissue massage, during which trained and experienced massage therapists sweep their glorious, anti-inflammatory knuckles across tensed muscles and deep aches, untying inglorious knots and sapping the body's stress reserves. While ecstasy flows throughout loosened shoulders and spines, feet are treated to a rejuvenating foot soak, setting put-upon paws in a hot tub of imperturbation. The final act of this halcyon journey introduces toes to the world of foot reflexology. Acting as a switchboard to the nation of nerves, the delicate spots of shoe-gloved bottom-hands send mysterious soothing signals to other spots in the body when rubbed just right. After this coma-inducing exploration of a tootsies treasure map, warm steam towels soothe skin and absorb any perspiring glee.
A day indulging in spa treatments is often necessary to rid the soul sack of stress and anxiety. The kindly Uptown staff will help you part the pea soup with a moment of clarity that will live well beyond your visit. Use newfound clear-headedness to achieve higher productivity, contagiously relax those around you, or finally beat Galaga.
Uptown Face and Body Care
Licensed aestheticians, massage therapists, and permanent-makeup technicians work as a team to beautify clients from the forehead to the smallest toenail at Uptown Face and Body Care. Tense bodies melt under Swedish or deep-tissue massage techniques, and dull complexions disappear after infusions of vitamin C, minerals, and glycolic acid during facials and peels.
