Spending a day at a spa is a tranquil experience surpassed only by swimming in a pool filled with mashed potatoes or having a hand model slap you to sleep. Immerse yourself in tranquility with today’s Groupon: for $99, you get a True Wellness spa package at Sabai Thai Spa (a $308 value), redeemable at the locations on Cardero Street, 3B-987 Marine Drive, and 1867 Marine Drive in Vancouver. The spa package includes:
- Custom whole-body detox massage
- Custom organic anti-aging facial
- Eye-brightening treatment
- Hydrating lip-plumping treatment
- Thai foot-reflexology massage<p>
Deeply rooted in a philosophy based on compassion for others, Sabai Thai Spa upholds ancient Thai healing traditions with services that soothe away stress and aim to enhance each client’s well-being. The more-than-1.5-hour True Wellness package detoxifies and revitalizes with customized treatments, beginning with a whole-body massage. Flowing strokes patterned after the wind-tossed sign language of Fabio’s mane press deeply on pressure points to provoke lymphatic drainage and relieve tension. Side streets and dead ends fade from facial roadmaps as an anti-aging facial formulated from antioxidant-rich Éminence Organic Skin Care products firms sagging skin and restores visage vibrancy. An eye-brightening treatment then rehabs the frames of soul-windows with a hydrating infusion that banishes dark circles, crow’s feet, and puffiness. Client puckers also get a makeover with a hydrating lip treatment that softens with an enzyme exfoliation, shea butter and vitamin E mask, and plumping lip balm. The final touch, an authentic Thai-style reflexology treatment, targets the body’s far-reaching corners without lifting a finger from its feet, activating pressure points associated with various glands and organs to establish intra-body treaties and a calming balance throughout.
Sabai Thai Spa
Healing others has been a part of Neata Auttapong’s life since she was a child growing up in Thailand, where, as Fresh Vancouver noted, she began learning the art of Thai massage at the age of 12. Years of learning holistic practices from the top healers in Thailand eventually led Neata to Vancouver, and since arriving, she’s opened three Sabai Thai Spa locations. Perhaps the spa’s expansion can be chalked up to the waterfall of accolades it’s gained, including praise from The Express show on Shaw TV and from _Coco Magazine_in Japan.
At each location, staff members reach for Éminence Organic Skin Care products during nine types of facials, and they send clients home with organic products from Dannyco and SpaRitual. Sabai’s menus are also packed with 14 types of massages, which clients can enhance with aromatic scents, exfoliating body wraps, and a refreshing mani-pedi that leaves digits cleaner than Mr. Clean’s morning kids show after the censors get through with it.
