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 $399, you get a day-spa package for two at Blush a Day Spa in Sonoma with a wine and cheese pairing from Robledo Family Winery and Vella Cheese (a $1,005 value). This deal also includes two wine-tasting passes and a 10% discount on purchases from Robledo Family Winery.
Nestled among the grapey-purple fields of wine country, Blush pampers guests with a healthy dose of restorative TLC designed to cultivate inner and outer well-being. Sip sauvignon blanc and chomp fine cheeses between an indulgent Green Tea and Chi scrub and massage (a $175 value) or Lotus Wei massage (a $130 value) plus an entourage of epidermal extras. A licensed sinew soother kicks off the 90-minute Green Tea and Chi body buffing by exfoliating the body with a curative potpourri of green tea, groundling ginger root, and seaweed before a relaxation massage eliminates unnecessary stress with essential oils. The 90-minute 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.
Included with each package, the Max7 light-therapy facial (a $275 value) combines the power of an 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 Booster 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. Following the facial, an aesthetician will fortify the visage with a firming mask (a $20 value).
After leaving Blush's opulent oasis, couples can stare deeply into the red and white potables at Robledo Family Winery, examining the color, complexion, and perfume of a selection from the vineyard's varietals (a $10 value). Purchase whites and reds at a 10% discount, and squirrel away bottles for the appropriate season.
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.
