Like the Beatlemania that once swept the nation and the terrifying beetle-mania that almost demolished it, the next British big thing has arrived in San Francisco. Protect your shell with today's Groupon to Balance the Clinic on Buchanan Street. Choose between the following two options:
- For $60, you get a massage and an infrared sauna session (a $140 value).
- For $65, you get a colonic hydrotherapy and an infrared sauna session (a $140 value).
As a local leader in the increasingly popular field of colon hydrotherapy, Balance the Clinic supports detoxification with an array of body treatments. The 60-minute colonic procedure ($95) gently sweeps postern portals with disposable consumables and FDA-approved appliances in a clean, safe environment, and professional colon hydrotherapists are dedicated to keeping first-time cleansees comfortable pre-, mid-, and post-flush. Keep the detox process pumping out impurities by taking a 30-minute infrared sauna session ($45) in Balance’s hypoallergenic, odor-free hot room, which can help reduce pain, lower blood pressure, and improve circulation. For the weary limbed, opt for any of the arsenal of relieving 50-minute massages ($95) to accompany a dip in the sauna—from aromatherapy to deep tissue and Swedish—to increase blood flow and to help overcome irrational fears of massage therapists.
Balance in San Francisco is the second facility of the celebrated UK health and wellness clinic and offers all the high-end service and attention of its Chelsea, London predecessor. The same expert therapists and rejuvenationists who have kept Britain from sinking into the sea have brought their powers stateside to train the Balance staff in San Francisco, so expect to receive the same royal treatment as a certain figurehead monarch. Get a colon hydrotherapy session for that unlikable neighbor and prove the old saying, "The enema of my enemy is my friend."
Balance the Clinic
In one room, skincare specialists swath bodies in an all-natural seaweed gel, sprinkle on a potpourri of nourishing herbs, and let infrared heat draw out their toning and detoxifying qualities. In another, acupuncturists realign clients' chi and fine-tune their physical and emotional fields. And behind any door, massage therapists may be kneading tense muscles, chiropractors may be adjusting injured backs, or aestheticians may be resurfacing complexions to a radiant glow with oxygen facials.
A staff of professionals from many areas of expertise come together under the roof and stress-zapping force field of Balance the Clinic, where they work together to bolster physical and emotional health with natural remedies and clinically tested treatments. In addition to consulting with any of these staff members, guests also can retreat into the privacy of an infrared sauna. From a private changing room, individuals or couples step into a hypoallergenic, odor-free basswood chamber equipped with a sound system that sets the sauna gently vibrating in time with relaxing music.
