Like sprawling mansions, spas house multiple rooms, possess an air of extravagance, and misplace half their staff in the grounds' complex hedge maze. Lap up labyrinthine luxuries with today's Groupon: for $25, you get $50 worth of spa and salon services at Zen Salon + Spa in Mission.
Zen Salon + Spa's conscientious caregivers integrate the Zen philosophy of balance, simplicity, and harmony into their individually tailored hair, nail, skin, and body treatments. Massage services run the pressure gamut from a 30-minute back-and-head massage ($35) to a deep sport treatment ($85). The no-tension massage unties wound-up worrywarts with one hour of deep-tissue techniques that release deeply rooted tensions in targeted areas ($85). For frustrated raisins looking to lure flirtatious grapes, the Image Signature Facial infuses skin with rejuvenating vitamins and antioxidants meant to fight signs of aging ($80).
Refresh stale strands with a Zen conditioning treatment (starting at $20), prescribed according to each ’do's demands with different formulations for nourishment, moisture, and volume. Patrons requiring a plethora of pampering can commit to the Zen Experience, a combination of manicure, pedicure, an Essential Facial, and an In Harmony Massage ($188).
The salon's décor displays radiant yellow walls that illuminate the manicure stations, and chocolaty-brown hues ground the treatment rooms. Zen Salon + Spa preserves its peaceful atmosphere by remaining free of children, cell phones, loud talking, and car-horn symphonies.
