After a long day of besieging steppe settlements, the Mongol hordes liked to kick back with a vigorous massage, a copy of the Daily Khan, and a nice warm glass of fermented yak's milk. Conquer your own serenity with today’s Groupon: for $150, you get a 90-minute light-therapy facial and your choice of a 90-minute green-tea-and-chi scrub and massage or a 90-minute Lotus Wei massage at Blush a Day Spa in Sonoma (up to a $450 value).
Nestled among the grapey-purple fields of wine country, Blush's intimate spa environment bolsters a spa day with a healthy dose of restorative TLC designed to cultivate inner and outer well-being. The 90-minute light-therapy facial combines the power of a noninvasive LED light treatment with one of the following face fixers: complexion perfection, hydrating collagen booster, purifying plus, or get the red out. Using a MAX7 apparatus, the 30-minute custom LED treatment gently penetrates epidermal layers to help treat a number of flesh flaws, such as acne, droopy dermis, stagnant collagen production, broken capillaries, and skin crinkles. Add to these benefits by choosing to strengthen and de-age skin with the complexion-perfection facial, synthesize collagen with the hydrating-collagen treatment, tone down oily and problem areas with the purifying-plus facial, or calm skin battling rosacea or amplified sensitivity with the get-the-red-out facial.
Next, you'll retire to the massage room for your choice of a 90-minute green-tea-and-chi scrub and massage or a 90-minute Lotus Wei massage (with choice of flower essences). A licensed sinew soother kicks off the green-tea-and-chi body scrub and massage by bathing the body with an exfoliating ancient Chinese mixture of green tea, groundling ginger root, and seaweed before a relaxation massage that fuses Swedish and shiatsu techniques. The Lotus Wei massage marshals the powers of floral essences to gelatinize muscles into a state of deep relaxation and transport nostrils to a scenic flowerscape.
All services are performed under the guidance of co-owner Dolores De Alba, an internationally trained aesthetician who has studied in Florence, Italy, and has worked with celebrities such as Jennifer Garner, Reese Witherspoon, and Alicia Silverstone. Her eclectic infusion of European–based beauty techniques and Eastern philosophy refresh the spirit as much as its vessel.
Blush a Day Spa
After completing her advanced aesthetics training at the Scuola d'Estetica Dorabruschi in Italy, owner Dolores De Alba brought her passion for skincare back to wine country, opening the complexion-focused blush a day spa with her husband and spa co-owner James. After entering the soft-colored salon, patrons slip into cozy robes and slippers and peruse a skin-perfecting treatment menu while sipping hot tea, volcanic mineral water, or champagne. Exotic ingredients pervade each treatment, with papaya, grapeseed, green tea, and rose clay extracted from Provence and sprinkled with rose buds helping technicians exfoliate skin, soothe musculature, and rebalance the body’s energies. The salon offers special packages for teens, brides-to-be, and men in need of TLC, customizing treatments to boost confidence or ease muscles sprained during staring contests.
