There's nothing more beautiful than the innocence of a child, unless that child is covered in pie filling. Out-beautify pie-gobbling youth with the help of today's Groupon to Agua de Vida Spa in San Gabriel. Choose between the following options:
• For $105, you get a one-hour deep-tissue massage (a $100 value) and a Deluxe mani-pedi (a $110 value; a total $210 value).
• For $145, you get a custom facial (a $125 value), a mini Brazilian wax (a $70 value), and $100 toward hair services (a $295 value).
The skilled staff at Agua de Vida, an organically inclined spa, revitalizes gracious guests with premium product lines and attentive, comprehensive care. In the comfort of Agua de Vida's simplistic, no-frills interior, a one-hour deep-tissue massage soothes tension and loosens ligaments with slow strokes, deep pressure, and relaxation commands tapped out in Morse code. Next, nail mavens dance digits through a Deluxe mani-pedi with an exfoliating scrub, hydrating mask, and extremity-oriented massage followed by a colorful game of dress-up in OPI polish.
Alternately, opt for a custom facial tailored to your skin's specific type, troubles, and epidermal aspirations in a cleansing treatment so anti-aging it makes Peter Pan look like a sellout. A mini Brazilian wax readies bodies for bikini weather, and the salon's bounty of hair services will leave locks luxurious with the cut and blow dry ($70) or partial ($90) or full highlights ($130) of your choice.
Agua De Vida
Before Bessy Lim had her first facial, her life was a succession of stressful, 12-hour shifts. Her first spa experience awakened a latent desire: she wanted to help others find the relaxation she had forgone for so long. With that, she left her stressful career, earned a number of spa certifications, traveled abroad to learn the various therapeutic techniques and ways to pronounce "microdermabrasion" of spas overseas, and finally opened Agua De Vida. There, a corps of certified and licensed massage therapists team up with the spa specialist to mend tense muscles with massage, swaddle bodies in wraps, purify pores with facials, and primp hands and feet with nail services.
