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.

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.
