Being struck by love is like being struck by lightning—it's sudden, electrifying, and explains why Benjamin Franklin was voted World's Sexiest Man in 1752. Make your own sparks fly with today's Groupon: for $99, you get the couple's pair's polish treatment at Tru (a $200 value).
A simple, clean, and modern spa experience, Tru wraps customers in luxury without smothering them with pretension. The 70-minute interactive pair's polish invites couples to share an intimate and invigorating experience that doesn't involve guessing each other's SAT scores. After changing into cushy robes and being led to a private rock room, a couple can reconnect while caressing each other with an exfoliating sugar scrub infused with strawberry, almond, and honey. After rinsing away the sweet scrub from their newly softened skin, they’ll massage each other with a body mask infused with strawberry, cream, honey, and forgotten adolescent urges. The room will then transform into a steam room, filling the air with a jungle-like mist, followed by a skin-cleansing tropical rain that hydrates the skin and signifies that this is the most important scene in the movie. This fun and personal treatment ends when the couple opens up their room to enjoy a romantic soak in the adjoining tub at the bottom of a private waterfall.
Tru focuses on effective treatments and new experiences, which is why the spa has a simple design, incorporating bright colors, a clean layout, and natural light. Green products and practices are employed wherever possible to encourage a sanitary and environmentally friendly and romantic spa space, much like getting a treatment in Al Gore’s woodchuck-powered jacuzzi.
Daily Candy and Luxist rave about Tru's pair's polish treatment. The spa was named Best Spa in San Francisco by Citysearchers, and 200 Citysearchers give Tru a near-perfect 4.5-star average. More than 270 Yelpers give it an average of 3.5 stars.
- The Pair's Polish takes place in the spa's tropical rainforest room. Couples rub each other down with a sugar-based exfoliating scrub that contains fresh strawberries, almonds and honey. You then use the hand shower to rinse and then slather on a strawberry cream and honey mixture. – Deidre Woollard, Luxist
- Tru offers an elegant, yet relaxed atmosphere that is worth every luxurious moment - as are you! – bellce, Citysearch
The aestheticians and spa staff at Tru Spa follow a strict spa mission focused on making each treatment they perform as effective as possible. This philosophy is reflected in the luxurious ingredients and thorough techniques employed in each skin, body, and nailcare service. On top of that, the spa itself was designed in ways that enhance specific treatments. Select bodywork procedures are performed in the Tropical Rainforest room, where a jungle mist drifts around the body before warm rain showers the client to mimic the effects of a body wrap without any constrictive coverings. Flat-screen TVs hang inside the nail room, drawing the clients' attention so they will be less likely to point at passersby. Colored light fills the massage rooms, painting everything in yellow, red, or dark blue. The rest of the spa sets a sleek and modern tone with natural light and bamboo flooring that is both sanitary and earth friendly.
