With the advent of organic beauty products, spa clients no longer have to break pre-colonial law to get the rejuvenating tar-and-feather treatments that were once in vogue. Pamper your exterior surfaces while recharging interior subsidies with today's Groupon: for $49, you get $100 worth of any services at Alainn Tu Salon and Spa, on Folsom Boulevard in East Sacramento.
Choosing from the myriad of services offered by Alainn Tu is only slightly easier than solving Fermat's last theorem. Ease your muscular woes with a 90-minute Lomi Lomi massage ($90), using ancient Hawaiian healing-touch techniques, or a 90-minute Swedish massage ($90), which enlists firm but gentle pressure to ease aches and improve circulation. For skin showing signs of stress, forget injecting soothing elevator music into your face and instead opt for the 60-minute environmental control treatment ($65), which reduces redness and inflammation in the face.
Alainn Tu's friendly and experienced stylists and aestheticians embody the importance of personalized care, and the salon/spa's commitment to an eco-friendly environment shows a worldview beyond the keratin fences of customer's toenails. If you're already feeling great but want to look even better, take advantage of Alainn Tu's salon services. Waxing options include brow ($18), lip ($7), and chin ($10–$15) treatments, or color your hair ($70–$90) and tint your lashes ($25). Set up a soothing sting operation on your hands and feet with Alainn Tu's mani-pedi services, such as the salon's signature Bees Knees service ($30 for manicure, $45 for pedicure), which uses milk, honey, citrus, a paraffin treatment, and nourishing masque with massage and polish.
