Located in a historic building in downtown Escondido with two floors and 11,000 square feet of space where romanesque white columns and archways, Renaissance paintings, and a sparkling chandelier invoke the parlor of an Italian palace. Relaxing music puts guests at ease as they sit in antique-style armchairs, awaiting custom facials, body treatments, and salon services performed with herbal and botanical products. Duos can de-stress together in the couples massage room, and a garden room allows humans to get the sun they need for their stalks to grow.
The soothing, brightly lit beauty spot boasts a professionally passionate staff that treats stressed-out soul sacks to high-quality, customized treatments. Boost your aerodynamics before the office bikini relay with a Brazilian wax, administered quickly and modestly, or bid adieu to mug whiskers with a lip ($12), cheek ($12), or nose ($7) wax. A swift session in underarm deforestation will devastate unwanted ecosystems ($15), and a full leg wax ($50) imbues gams with hairless confidence and smoother steps when scaling elevator shafts.
Philly's Cheesesteaks and More outfits diners' digits with elaborate handheld creations including sandwiches, quesadillas, and personal pizzas. White, wheat, or parmesan bread cradles each harmonic blend of fixings in specialties sandwiches, such as the tandoori chicken with olives, onions, and provolone cheese ($5.95+) or the grilled eggplant zucchini sub ($5.95+). Sesame-glazed chicken or beef sandwiches unite green onions and tomatoes in a blanket of teriyaki sauce ($5.95+), and the philly steak attacks ravenous appetites with a swiss-cheese-laden smorgasbord of onions, peppers, mushrooms, and homestyle steak ($5.95). Unique and eclectic toppings frolic atop personal pizzas, such as the barbecue chicken pizza ($4.95), or cower behind the tortilla arms of the shrimp-pesto quesadilla ($4.95) bubbling over with mozzarella for a taste more surprising than digging up a time capsule filled with pictures of your future self burying a time capsule.
Having visited clients in hotels and ski resorts for seven years before establishing her own practice, licensed massage therapist Allison has amassed a repertoire of luxurious add-ons to her services. Her wintertime patrons rest atop heated tables, for example, and she swaddles limbs in warm towels upon request. Guests can even choose how they would like their aromatherapy oils to be distributed: directly on the skin, diffused through the air, or delicately combed into their mustache.
Allison still makes house and hotel calls to complement her in-spa treatments, which cover a range of specialty massage techniques. Her signature modality mixes Swedish, Russian, and trigger-point therapy for a medley of surface- and deep-tissue work, whereas a pure relaxation massage relies on Swedish kneads to lull muscles into slack serenity. She and her apprentices have also mastered the use of hot stones, salt scrubs, and paraffin wraps to enhance their appointments. Whether her customers are hoping for pinpointed, intense strokes or a romantic couples massage, they can anticipate calming music and intuitive touch from the team.
