Cocoon maintains a tranquil, contemporary environment designed to swaddle you during your magnificent transformation. Pamper yourself with a facial, massage, or the mani-pedi that SF Weekly tipped for its Best Of 2009 issue. Sip on the complimentary champagne or herb-infused water as you peruse the roster of services, picking and choosing from manicures and pedicures ($22–$85), waxing ($10–$60), tanning ($10–$48), massage ($50–$250), and skincare treatments ($60–$225). Experience a deep-tissue massage for the first time since space camp ($120 for 60 minutes). Wax your way to the most futuristic hairless look with services covering areas ranging from upper lip and chin ($18) to a variety of helpfully illustrated bikini options. Cocoon caters to men as well, with back and chest waxing ($35–$60), express mani-pedis ($15–$20), and couples' massages ($220–$310).
Cocoon is committed to the wellness, relaxation, and health of its clients and is open Tuesday through Sunday, with evening hours available to accommodate your schedule. The spa also carries a selection of clothing, lingerie, and jewelry from local designers, so you can shop between treatments.
Crave Party, the San Francisco Chronicle, and Daily Candy have featured Cocoon. SF Weekly singled out Cocoon’s mani-pedi as the best in the Bay for 2009; Yelpers give Cocoon Urban Day Spa a 4.5-star average.
- Cocoon Urban Day Spa, in fact, is the perfect pit stop for some unrushed mani/pedi luxury. Its airy, sun-dappled lounge makes for the most lavish and relaxing hand and foot treatment in town: the Cocooning Signature Mani/ Pedi Combo. Paired with a cup of herbal tea and a plush blanket, the two-hour treatment includes gentle, loving attention to your tips and toes (without the ooky whirlpool foot bath). – SF Weekly
- The multifaceted space has espresso floors, cream walls, and exposed beams. A trickling Buddha fountain sits outside a small yoga studio where om sessions are offered all day. Settle into the loft-like mani-pedi lounge for luxurious treatments. Rejuvenate with an herbal poultice massage or the signature facial, which combines Sothys Paris skin care with ancient Indian head and foot massage therapy. – Daily Candy
Cocoon Urban Day Spa
Cocoon Urban Day Spa's personally tailored services help clients shut out the stressors of everyday life, as well as refresh appearances. During the signature facial, for instance, clients relax on a plush treatment table while aestheticians apply a customized mask, plump up their skin with oxygen, and then knead knots out of their backs, necks, and shoulders. The decadent facial also includes a calming Shirobhyanga head treatment, which fights insomnia better than lavender-scented PJs.
For those who do need to get back to the real world as soon as possible, Cocoon offers services such as 15-minute Brazilian waxes, 30-minute dermaplaning treatments, and mani-pedis performed simultaneously by two technicians. This particular treatment was featured in Vogue.
The spa's doctor-partners perform more intensive treatments, too, including Botox injections and teeth whitening.
