The face is the window to the inner world, the hands are the doorway to the outer world, and the feet are just stupid feet. Pamper your portals with today's Groupon: for $55, you get a custom organic facial with hand and foot softening thermal treatment at Apothecary Wellness Spa (a $112 value) in Federal Hill.
Experts in holistic fairness and fitness, the complexion craftsfolk of Apothecary Wellness Spa cleanse dirty dermises and relax tense tissue with natural nourishment and a peaceful atmosphere. Edginess ebbs just inside the front door as patrons enjoy the sunlit, intimate lobby with a cup of tea or a hug from Mother Nature. After discussing skin type with an esthetician, a custom facial regimen is constructed to see to an individual's vital visage needs. The one-hour once over combines a cleansing, a massage, and the choice between a standard facial mask or briefly wearing a Mayan war mask to scare away bad face spirits (an $85 value). Afterwards, customers in repose are rewarded with warm, moisturizing herbal wraps about the hands and feet, conveying a cocktail of jojoba, organic coconut oil, shea butter and vitamin E to overused extremities (a $27 value).
The final treatment comes as the thorough therapists encompass curious minds with the facts necessary to continue a healthy routine at home. Education is not limited to steps taken, but also covers the eco-conscious components that go into Apothecary Wellness Spa's own green goods. The establishment rehearses its recommendations daily, utilizing organic cotton sheets and towels, vegetable based ink, and recycled light.
Apothecary Wellness Spa's service menu may be long and diverse, but every treatment has one thing in common: holistic, eco-friendly products and techniques that calm the mind and reveal beauty naturally. Facials rely on formulas from Naturopathica and Ilike Organic Skincare to purify and revitalize complexions through fully personalized treatments, each of which include soothing massages and a bounty of hot towels. Custom-massage sessions benefit from the addition of individually blended essential oils, and body treatments soften the skin by imparting essences of wholesome fruits, vegetables, and herbs. Even the waxing treatments take a natural approach by using Nufree, a plant-based, hair-removal formula that's naturally antibacterial and free of waxes and sugars, resulting in less skin irritation than the hard waxes or recently-lit birthday candles used by other spas.
