Aveda Institute – $5 off any service

In efforts to get over the January blahs, how about a massage or spa treatment at the Aveda Institute in Northeast Minneapolis?  Would $5 off already bargain prices seal the deal? Link to coupon

Facials and Massages start at $45.

Body Wraps and Treatments start at $55.

Full Service Menu can be found here.

I am anxious to try the Caribbean TherapyTM  Body Treatment ($55):  This treatment rejuvenates the senses with the aromas of the Caribbean. The service includes dry exfoliation, a seaweed body masque, a Vichy shower experience and body massage to detoxify, calm and renew in this island-inspired ritual.

I have tried the elemental massage and elemental facial and both are recommended.  As for the mani-pedis and facial waxing – BEWARE!  I’ve had multiple bad experiences with both.  The mani-pedis don’t resemble a spa experience at all and the paint job is very amateur.  The waxing is also very amaturish and I always feel like it wasn’t even worth a try as there are always too many brow hairs that are missed.  The coupon is also good on other services such as haircuts and color.  I typically get my hair cut and colored here but it’s a very time consuming and “spotty” process depending on what student you get.  I would not recommend going this route unless you really need to save money.
