A blown kiss often gets misdirected in the wind, inadvertently creating lovelorn alley cats and hopelessly romantic mailboxes. Take control of the signals you send with today's Groupon: for $85, you get the Majestic Escape package (a $190 value) at Cote d'Azur Spa in Pasadena.
Welcoming its guests with hot herbal tea and a citrus-cucumber beverage, Cote d'Azur offers a delightful assortment of holistic treatments. The Majestic Escape package provides 70 minutes of relaxation at the hands of a talented and friendly staff member. A custom massage confronts sore muscles and even dares to explore the realm of hot stones and rice packs. The refreshing spa excursion also includes custom aromatherapy, which is created with organic products and essential oils in accordance with each customer's needs and the volume of his or her nostrils. To complete the healing process, the treatment adds a silk hand hydration and a cold-stone acupressure massage for the face and face neck.
Cote d'Azur comforts those who venture into its peaceful ambience with visions of bared brick walls, burgundy curtains, and flowery stained-glass windows. An outdoor area gives the venue a calm, tranquil feeling similar to listening to R&B songs about sleeping inside giant bags of marshmallows.
- Carolyn Jacques takes an amalga-mated kitchen-sink approach to bodywork. A Native American, she taps into the tribal healing techniques coursing through her veins, along with Maori (ouch!) modalities, Qigong, cord cutting, traditional massage, reflexology, aromatherapy and quantum healing…Usually, to get deep healing bodywork of this caliber — infused with ancient mojo, divine light and empathic, motherly love — you have to travel to the far ends of the Earth and leap through flaming hoops along the way. – Dani Katz, Los Angeles Weekly
At Cote d'Azur, don't be surprised if you get a mud wrap from a barefoot aesthetician. Being shoeless helps some of the staff members stay centered, and it reflects the spa's down-to-earth approach to healing. Similarly, many of the treatments draw from natural elements. Lemon and mint invigorate sore toes during the Tibetan foot soak, and French Sea salt nurtures the flow of positive energy during Salt Glow treatments. Many services draw from exotic and ancient modalities that focus on holistic wellness, from Thai bodywork to acupuncture treatments that are geared toward fostering spiritual balance.
