As a co-owner of Studio J The Salon and an educator for Kuene Haircosmetics, Jade Nicole Sanchez has an in-depth knowledge of haircare and expertise that she has used to style the hairdos of former House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, The B-52s, and the San Antonio Spurs Silver Dancers. Jade and her team of talented stylists and aestheticians master a complete menu of hair and aesthetic treatments, ranging from nailcare to massage therapy. Every third Thursday of the month, the salon hosts Martinis, Manicures, and Men's Cuts in alliance with Vbar. During these events, the color bar is converted into a martini bar and stylists perform nail services, manly grooming, and chair massages in a social environment that encourages attendees to network and sign each other's yearbooks.
Sunbathe's sugar-based tanning spray ($35 per application) bestows a bronzey sun kiss without the usual neon-orange streaks. Designed to soothe skin as much as gild it, the blend is free of harsh chemicals and includes wild botanical extracts, herbs, and artisanal antioxidants crafted by hand in the French Alps. If you prefer skin as pale as a salt kernel, opt for other beauty-bolstering spa services, such as an express manicure ($25), pedicure ($35), facial ($35+), or eyebrow threading ($18). Sunbathe also offers sugaring ($40 for a bikini), and massage therapy with a licensed therapist ($65 an hour).

Miriam Figueroa, a holistic wellness counselor, licensed massage therapist, and aesthetician, spent more than 20 years in the health and beauty industry, staffing five-star hotel spas and then founding her own luxurious center, Spatini Holistic Health. Her spa specializes in M’lis wellness programs, treatment packages that reduce stress and target specific ailments—from cellulite to arthritis—by drawing on the interrelations between mind, body, and soul.
A suite of traditional spa treatments flanks the holistic programs. Facials run the gamut from deep cleanses to nonsurgical face-lifts. Seven available styles of massage encompass the gliding strokes of Swedish and hot-stone massage, which the ancients discovered using stones warmed by confused mother chickens. Body polishes exfoliate away dry skin, an ideal prep for a botanical Bronze Biologic formula that leaves behind sunless, natural-looking tans.
An unsung contributor to seasonal allergies, body hair is two-thirds responsible for the prevalence of sneezy pollens, which get trapped in the body's natural webbing. Today's Groupon makes bristly whiskers a thing of the past. For $99, you get to choose between three laser hair-removal treatments for one region of the body or a corrective IPL facial treatment at Skin Rejuvenation Clinique on Broadway in Alamo Heights, up to a $450 value. Much more pleasant than laser hair addition, laser hair removal is a non-invasive treatment that lays bare befuddling follicles that can interfere with spring fashion. Happily not attached to sharks, monkeys, or other nefarious creatures, the same friendly lasers that can rid you of hair can smooth and brighten your visage after a facial rejuvenation treatment.
Skin Rejuvenation Clinique is staffed by certified skincare therapists and benevolent laser technicians who specialize in accentuating the youthful smoothness that lies within everyone. Upon welcoming customers to their relaxing treatment space, SRC's professional aestheticians customize a beauty regimen to each client's desires. With laser hair removal, patients get to choose between the chin, lip, underarms, or bikini line (not including Brazilian bikinis) for three quick and gentle laser sprinklings. Hairs politely wilt under the influence of a broad light spectrum whose good nature doesn't harm the skin while thinning and reducing the presence of hair over each session.
Today's deal also gives patients the option for a Clareon IPL facial rejuvenation treatment. Skin's accrued battle scars from age, sun exposure, and woe-begotten icicle wars are softened through light technology designed to tone skin and reduce discolorations. Skin is a faithful organ blanket through thick, thin, and ultra-thick, making it a worthy canvas for pampering attention. You'll emanate endorphins of beauteous skin-confidence after this clarifying, balancing treatment. Groupon customers can get two Groupons to get one of each treatment, avoiding minutes of decision-making. Call ahead to select and schedule your treatment.
Skin Rejuvenation Clinique gets a perfect five stars from six Citysearchers and three Yahoo! Locals.

At The Woodhouse, relaxation begins upon each client's arrival in the spa's dedicated Quiet Room. A fluffy robe drapes around their shoulders, reflexology sandals lightly massage their feet, and mugs of loose-leaf tea warm their lips as they await the start of their services. The spa's product selection reflects a similar attention to detail: employees fill the shelves with natural, organic, and wild-crafted products. They also go the extra mile to include small extras with each session, such as home-care recommendations after facial treatments and foot-cleansing with each massage. The award-winning spa was voted best spa by the readers of the San-Antonio Express-News, and was deemed best spa and best massage by readers of San Antonio Magazine.
