Without harmony-boosting spa treatments, bodily humors become unbalanced, resulting in unalloyed rage and irrational beliefs that Earth is round. Achieve balance with today's Groupon: for $44, you get a Brazilian wax (a $38 value) and a shellac pedicure (a $50 value) at Vada Spa (an $88 total value).
Vada Spa's trained technicians and aestheticians perform a full range of stress-relieving, beautifying spa services. Prepare for a vacation or a full-body scan at the airport with a Brazilian wax, conducted by well-seasoned de-fuzzing experts. Clients with sensitive skin can pamper their hyperactive nerve endings by requesting a reduced-pain wax for an additional fee. Shellac pedicurists employ a combination of polish and gel to decrease drying time and to maximize mirror-like finishes. The polish's dazzling colors can provide roughly two weeks of chip-resistant wear to last through frolics on the beach, quick strides through the city, and dancing en pointe through coarsely ground coals.
At Vada Spa, staff members devote their international training to beauty rituals that use natural and organic products from GM Collins and Pevonia Botanica. Two floors accommodate spacious mani-pedi bars, styling stations, and private, candle-lit treatment rooms that all swirl with activity until 9 p.m. every day. The owners of the Spa make sure that each service is administered by a true specialist––laser technicians only do laser procedures and aestheticians never hand over their facial duties to an assistant or nearby welder. "We're very particular about who we hire," one of the spa owners says. "It has to be someone who's experienced. We don't have anyone here who's just starting out or fresh out of school."
Since their mission is to be a one-stop destination for head-to-toe spa services, Vada's owners do their best to reserve hairstyling chairs and treatment rooms for walk-in customers. They also pride themselves on their expertise with the male aesthetic, offering a lineup of guy-specific spa services including back facials, shoulder waxing, and spare-tire rotations.
