Spas, like toga parties, involve an excessive amount of white towels and at least one guest who drunkenly tries to place cucumbers on everyone's eyes. Heed the Roman pursuit of pleasure with today's Groupon: for $45, you get a one-hour skin refining spa facial and a foot scrub at Kinetic Waves in Tiburon (a $90 value).
The epidermal experts at Kinetic Waves strive to improve skin surfaces and relax muscles with a bevy of noninvasive services. The skin refining spa facial (a $90 value) helps soften complexions, purify pores, and boost facial radiance with a line of natural, organic skincare products. In addition, a complimentary foot scrub pampers piggies and evens out calluses while aromatherapy calms the mind, washing over the brain like a big wave over a smaller wave.
Adhering to a holistic healing philosophy, Kinetic Waves' staff pampers guests with noninvasive treatments designed to bolster skin health and relieve stress without the use of harmful chemicals. The specialists administer a variety of complexion-clearing and anti-aging facials, treating mugs to Hujan Natural Skin Care products, which are free of parabens, gluten, artificial fragrances, and dyes. Guests can also revel in relaxation during holistic treatments, such as reiki and craniosacral-therapy sessions, and massage, in which therapists knead away muscular tension with their experienced hands or mastery of telekinesis.
