Without spas, massage therapists and aestheticians would have to ply their trade from verdant hedge mazes, which are incredibly resistant to feng shui. Enjoy pampering in a perfectly balanced environment with today’s Groupon to Encore Medspa in Walnut Creek. Choose between the following options:
- For $69, you get a one-hour microdermabrasion facial (a $179 value).
- For $45, you get a one-hour Swedish massage (a $99 value).<p>
Encore Medspa employs noninvasive treatments and highly trained hands to treat tired faces and backs to an entire hour of stress-free serenity. The crystalline caress of a microdermabrasion treatment lifts away dead skin and hardened postage stamps from the face using a spray of fine mineral exfoliants before aestheticians prepare fresh, tender skin to face the harsh outside world with a customized signature facial. A steam cleanse forces impurities out of hiding and into the waiting extractors of a full facial mask to produce a rehydrated, detoxified, exfoliated set of cheeks. Already fresh frontispieces can opt instead for a Swedish massage, flipping over onto faces to allow hands to flow firmly across the scope of the back. Perfect for relieving stress and increasing circulation throughout the body, Swedish massage uses a combination of long, smooth strokes and targeted pressure to ease chronic aches and restore spring to each patient’s skip.
Inside Encore Medspa, pale carpets catch the sunlight from floor to ceiling windows upon their soft pile, cushioning its fall and bouncing it back around the room’s neutral tones and pink accent walls. Soft curtains separate treatment areas from the rest of the space, providing shy patients the privacy they need to fully relax or finally remove their mascot heads.
Encore Medspa probably doesn’t receive many noise complaints from its downstairs neighbor, Tiffany & Co. Channeling its inner spa, the second-story office remains quiet and contemplative, allowing guests to lounge on couches in the waiting room, study decorative mirrors on the walls, and use a stove heater in the massage room to grill hot dogs. In this serene setting, medical director Dr. Julia Ankinding and registered nurses Adrianne Gonzalez and Cindy Grounds help restore youth to faces through Botox injections and facials. The medspa also offers advanced services such as Fraxel laser treatments as well as more advanced med spa services such as Fraxel laser treatments and micro laser peels.
