The problem with invisibility is that cloak fashions fade rapidly and past-season trends don't capture anyone's eyes for resale. Manage your appearance in a more sustainable way with today's deal: for $69, you get a one-hour Elemental Nature massage and a spa mani-pedi at VIM Fitness Spa and Salon in Cambridge (a $145 value).
This suite of corporeal indulgences targets and tackles the tension that too often takes up residence in the back, fingers, and foot fringe. The Elemental Nature massage ($85) offers customized earth-themed pampering, soothing torsos weary for a variety of reasons, whether from bear-hugging lonely bears or playing leapfrog with a giraffe. Summon the essence of air with Infinity and Air, a slow warming deep-tissue massage that ameliorates overworked fibers, or cool flushed flesh and muscles with a rhythmic stress-relieving Fire massage. The Water and Earth therapy style employs fast-paced, acute techniques to stimulate circulation and temporarily turn clients' minds into swimming pools.
After posteriors are thoroughly pampered, the 30-minute spa manicure and 50-minute spa pedicure ($20 and $40, respectively) focus the salon's healing energies on hands and feet, leaving visitors with winsomely groomed nails and cuticles and deeply exfoliated appendages.
Shining a spotlight on holistic wellness, VIM is a hub for nutritious comestibles, body-friendly workout regimes, and health counseling, in addition to being a source for aesthetic pampering. The positive ethos also extends to VIM's earth-sensitive practices, which include recycling, using natural, botanically based Aveda products, and crying happy tears during eye-locks with the sun.
