Licensed acupuncturist Julia Sanfilippo performs each treatment surrounded by stockpiles of knowledge that she accumulated while earning a master of science in traditional oriental medicine from Pacific College of Oriental Medicine. Rejuvenating treatments entail the insertion of fine needles into acupuncture points on the face, neck, and around the eyes. By stimulating facial muscles in strategic spots, Sanfilippo aims to reduce the visibility of fine lines and wrinkles and imbue skin with the tone of an extremely fit porcupine. Although most patients leave looking more youthful after a single session, multiple sessions are typically recommended (sometimes as many as 10 for best results). After needles are removed, a massage soothes the face, scalp, and hands to prepare them to fend off droves of admiring woodland creatures.
For the staff at Cove Wellness, a day at the spa isn't just about relaxation. It's also about prevention. Without proper attention, bodily ailments and stress can snowball into something bigger, and so the spa's therapists have made it their goal to help clients bring bodies and spirits back into balance. Believing detoxification to be the most natural and direct way to promote wellness from within, their three-step Signature of La Jolla Detox treatment combines bioenergetic lymphatic therapy, colon hydrotherapy, and a lymphatic-detox footbath to rid clients of accumulated waste and recharge the immune systems. Cellulite-reduction therapy helps promote smoother contours by boosting lymphatic drainage, and acupuncture helps clear energy blockages and boost circulation, bringing possible relief to ailments such as migraines, insomnia, sciatica, and restless ankle syndrome.
