The European facial at AHN Skin & Beauty is a microcosm of the spa's dedication to relaxation and beautification. In addition to rejuvenating complexions, it includes shoulder, neck, and scalp massages and an aromatherapy treatment with a fragrant hot towel fluffed in a flower-filled dryer. If you just want beauty services, you can schedule airbrush-tanning, eyelash-extension, and hair-and-makeup sessions. For pure relaxation, on the other hand, the spa's massage therapists give Swedish and deep-tissue massages.
Hawaiian-print curtains welcome clients to Suki Day Spa's shabby-chic Fourth Avenue location, where bamboo screens flank cream-colored sofas in wicker or leather and a vast painting of a red blossom reflects punches of crimson in the throw pillows and fresh blooms. The long, lean space reaches beyond the plush pedicure chairs to a hallway with private rooms, where spa treatments such as massages, facials, and spray tans gloss clients' guises more effectively than daily slatherings of vaseline and glitter.
Catering to the wellbeing of soon-to-be or new mothers is the top priority at Rebirth Maya Massage, which offers everything from doula services to pre- and post-natal massages. The soothing massages can help reduce sciatic pain and promote restful sleep, or help restore and contour the body after pregnancy. Cleansing steam baths, cupping treatments, and abdominal therapies based on ancient Mayan medicine also enhance ladies' wellness.
The act of mashing together sugar and peppermint leaves can make tasty summer drinks and refreshing, exfoliating body scrubs. That?s why EnviouSkin calls this vegan and organic treatment the ?mojito,? and it is perhaps the reason why EnviouSkin was featured as part of the city?s Spa Week and on San Diego 6, along with spa owner Kim. She studied skincare across Europe, practicing cutting-edge techniques with experts and familiarizing herself with new products, before settling in San Diego. She has designed a spa whose soothing confines reflect nature with an earth-toned color scheme, flowering plants, and smooth stone walls that catch flickering candlelight in their mouths. By creating luxurious facials, massages, peels, and waxing treatments, she is following her lifelong dream of keeping skin healthier via signature services and client education.
For those with sore muscles, spotty skin, achy joints, or weary spirits, a treatment at Spa & Etc. might be just the ticket for a much-needed boost. Here, licensed massage therapists and aestheticians have a myriad of services to help?hot-stone massages play a one-two punch on stress and soreness, and reflexology treatments rebalance out-of-whack energy levels. There's also salt body scrubs, multivitamin hand repairs, and infrared sauna sessions, which come with detox oil wraps that help rid the body of toxins.
As these treatments rejuvenate the body, facials such as the Dermalogica skin treatments restore the skin to its radiant glow with masques, toners, and double cleansing, expelling every last pore-blocking subatomic particle.
If you literally put Redken and Schwarzkopf products in a tool belt, you might get your tool belt all goopy. But Golden Touch Salon’s skilled stylist Janna Scalisi metaphorically has those products in her tool belt, and she uses them, along with more than five years of experience, to craft beautiful styles customized to each of her clients. Janna can ramp up strands with color highlights or customize an all-over color to match a sweater. Golden Touch Salon also presents a slate of non-hair services, which range from waxing and facials to mani-pedis and restorative bodywork.
