In the Old West, cowboys rode into town to have a glass of whiskey at the town saloon, heckle the thieves in the stockades, and exfoliate their rugged mugs with the sheriff's spurs. Saddle up for modern shaping up with today's Groupon: for $37, you get your choice of a one-hour massage (choose from four different options) or a one-hour Elixir Facial (each a $75 value) at Elixir Salon, valid only at the Berkeley location.
The sunny, seasoned corpus-and-countenance caretakers at Elixir Salon holster an array of prestigious awards alongside their Aveda armaments and nimble digits. Brick walls, arched windows, and high ceilings greet pore proprietors to the Berkeley salon and spa's inviting, unassuming setting, where you'll be open to the choice of a one-hour facial or massage. Entrust the visage to the holistic healing powers of skin specialist Erika Bunnin for the Elixir Facial, the facility's signature facial. During the deeply relaxing treatment, she'll take into account your skin's needs and conditions before choosing a customized procedure that fits best, employing rejuvenating products and massages to eliminate toxins and impurities. If the shrieks of an aching muscle mass stir tossing and turning in your straw cot, licensed knead therapist Amanda Whitehead can apply her therapeutic, powerful palms and lilting coo to soothe afflicted areas with the choice of Swedish, deep-tissue, prenatal, or postpartum techniques. The combination of a comfortable environment and calming, flowing pressure renews and balances, restoring your body to a nubile state of relaxed joyousness unlike any since you got your braces removed.
Elixir's professional, warm staff and elegant décor exude an air that feels at once homey and exclusive, where specialists pay special care and attention to their weary patrons. Call ahead to schedule your appointment.
New clients only.
