The sunny, seasoned corpus-and-countenance caretakers at Elixir Salon holster an array of prestigious awards alongside their Aveda armaments and nimble digits. Brick walls, arched windows, and high ceilings greet pore proprietors to the Berkeley salon and spa's inviting, unassuming setting, where you'll be open to the choice of a one-hour facial or massage. Entrust the visage to the holistic healing powers of skin specialist Erika Bunnin for the Elixir Facial, the facility's signature facial. During the deeply relaxing treatment, she'll take into account your skin's needs and conditions before choosing a customized procedure that fits best, employing rejuvenating products and massages to eliminate toxins and impurities. If the shrieks of an aching muscle mass stir tossing and turning in your straw cot, licensed knead therapist Amanda Whitehead can apply her therapeutic, powerful palms and lilting coo to soothe afflicted areas with the choice of Swedish, deep-tissue, prenatal, or postpartum techniques. The combination of a comfortable environment and calming, flowing pressure renews and balances, restoring your body to a nubile state of relaxed joyousness unlike any since you got your braces removed.
