Guests entering Talega Day Spa may expect to see an Etruscan soldier emerging from a mud-and-sea-salt body wrap, or Dante Alighieri jotting down notes about the infrared sauna. The ancient Etruscan people are the inspiration for the beauty haven, as they helped introduce Western civilization to the concept of spa treatments by using the healing properties of local volcanic springs, or terme. The space?which is adorned with elegant rotundas, Renaissance-style murals, and archways that resemble Roman columns?pays homage to the culture that was responsible for shaping the art of self-preservation.
As noted in the San Clemente Times, Talega was voted the number-one day spa in San Clemente 3 years in a row, due in no small part to the talents of its attentive team. Massage therapists loosen muscles more effectively than log rolling down the hills of Tuscany, and aestheticians nourish faces with natural ingredients. After a Zerona body-contouring session or a Botox or laser skincare treatment, patrons explore amenities such as a couples treatment room, a garden-themed relaxation room, and a sunny outdoor patio.
Massage therapist Liz Post uses massage to improve both physical and mental health, drawing upon the healing techniques of chiropractic care, spa sessions, and sports medicine. She adjusts her treatments depending on customers' needs, offering deep, intense strokes for athletes detoxifying after a hard workout or light strokes to accommodate moms-to-be. In between appointments, she conducts sugaring sessions to remove unwanted hair, leaving skin as smooth as the bald little heads of every doll that ever got in her way.
The muted glow from a stained-glass lamp shines in a private treatment room at Boho Vanité, where dark-blue walls and bronze wall medallions complete a bohemian look. In fact, the spa's mission is to provide clients with treatments in the bohemian way. Its eclectic service includes treatments that improve the skin or enhance clients' natural beauty. For example, its skin-rejuvenation treatment tackles wrinkles, cellulite, stretch marks, and sagging skin in a single session.
True to its name, Eyeland Lash outfits beauty seekers with everything for lashes, from voluminous mink extensions to colorful lash highlights. Certified extensions specialists meticulously glue mink, microfiber, and silk lashes along natural eye lines to create a spectrum of looks, such as subtle curls or dramatic length. Colored and two-tone lashes add pops of blue, purple, and green to eyes, and glitter lashes take the place of cumbersome strobe lights to make eyes shine.
Sugaring—the Egyptians have been doing it since 1900 BC. The hair-removal method uses a material made from sugar, lemon juice, and water that, when applied, doesn’t stick to skin cells, taking only hair with it when removed. At Sugaring Studio, the expertly trained staff understands the benefits of using their organic-skincare lineup. Sugaring Studio also offers lash extensions for those wanting to add a little something to the top.
