Existential ponderings shouldn’t ask if the chicken or the egg came first, but rather who plucked the first chicken from the vine. Today’s Groupon nuzzles nature’s roots with one of three organic rejuvenation packages from Avra Organic Spa, the Fisherman’s Wharf spa SF Weekly calls Best Place to Detox. For $59, you can choose between a toning combination of a body wrap and infrared sauna treatment, a European facial with infrared sauna time, or a colon hydrotherapy introductory session to spread the vigors of youth throughout your body.
While many spas paint their walls and carpets with crushed-up mint leaves to give a green impression, Avra Organic Spa is a truly green spa that implements an aesthetic based around recycled products and uses organic, all-natural ingredients while growing its own chlorophyll. The spa’s experienced therapists provide a soothing environment as they beautify customers with a variety of service packages. Choose one from the following:
- Organic Herbal Body Wrap: The spa’s most popular treatment, this 75-minute organic wrap reduces water retention while toning the skin’s surface and detoxifying inner networks. The wrap is joined by a 45-minute infrared sauna session that further expels inner toxins, increases metabolism, and boosts the immune system.
- European Facial: A 60-minute trip to space camp for your face, this treatment combines a light fruit acid peel with enzymes and an ultrasound exfoliation to remove dead and dying skin in favor of fresh, healthy layers. Gentle extractions are followed by a facial massage, mask, and serum before a 45-minute visit to the infrared sauna.
- Colon Hydrotherapy: A healthy colon signifies a healthy body. The 90-minute introductory session is administered by a certified colon hydrotherapist who consults your dietary history before progressing through abdominal massage, breathing exercises, and aromatherapy while hydrating your colon and detoxifying your entire system.
Instead of feeding your health with lime jellos infused with antioxidants, treat it to organic services that are as rewarding as dropping a cannonball into a bubbling, Edenic spring.
SF Weekly named Avra Organic Spa to its Best of 2009 list as Best Place to Detox: > * Becoming mindful about your finances doesn’t have to mean giving up pampering. It just means trading in your regular ol’ day spa — debutantes, amenity-packed locker rooms, pretentious ‘tudes, and all — for a place like Avra Organic Spa, the perfect retreat for frazzled nerves and conscientious intentions. – SF Weekly
Three Citysearchers give it a perfect five stars, and Yelpers, who love the organic herbal body wrap and colon hydrotherapy, give it 4.5 stars: > * This spa is wonderful for many ways. First, the staff is phenomenal. Second, the ambiance is cool, calm, clean, relaxing, etc. You walk in and feel more relaxed just by being there. – lola2727, Citysearch
