The world's first day-spa owner invited clients to "experience the healing powers of this here tar pit," which was bad news for the clientele but invaluable for modern-day archaeologists. Preserve well-being without becoming permanently preserved with today's Groupon for spa services at Joanna Ruley-Garza Beauty, Style and Wellness in San Marcos. Choose between the following options:
- For $40, you get a microcurrent nonsurgical facelift treatment (a $95 value).
- For $50, you get a microcurrent nonsurgical facelift treatment plus an Ayurvedic foot scrub (a $115 value).
Joanna Ruley-Garza packs each service with more than 15 years of experience in the fields of beauty therapy, aesthetics, and alternative healing. The microcurrent nonsurgical facelift treatment sends gentle electric pulses into the facial muscles, improving tone and sculpting sagging faces into elegant profiles like Zeus's lightning chisel. Below the surface, facial stimulation can pump up facial circulation while zapping tension. Those who opt to add the Ayurvedic foot scrub will let shoe-fillers feast upon therapeutic sugar and essential oils in a soak that soothes foot insides while sloughing away their winter skins.
The spa hails from a majestic Victorian home, spilling with exotically decorated linens and unique spiritual objects. Clients can relax while enjoying light snacks and herbal tea in the lounge area after each service.
