Though best known for expanding the limits of human thought, the great philosophers were also ardent proponents of skin treatments—rarely furrowing their brows without first applying a de-furrowing cucumber mask. Today’s Groupon to Le Spa in Folsom will wipe out your own philosophical furrows. A spacious, elegant interior dressed in rich gemstone hues sets the stage for an array of exhilarating services. During your 45-minute aromatherapy and hot towel massage, your muscles will be treated to gentle, Swedish-style kneads while your stresses are convinced to set sail away from your body on sweet scent waves of lavender, eucalyptus, or peppermint. An initial consultation with one of Le Spa's skilled aestheticians will shape your accompanying 45-minute signature facial, which includes a double cleanse, exfoliation, treatment mask, moisturizer, and slather of age-fighting sunscreen. Call to schedule an appointment.
A one-size-fits-all promise is generally too good to be true. So at Le Spa, seasoned aestheticians, therapists, and stylists adjust their services for each client, whether it be through varying blends of organic beauty serums from Hungary or a mix of reflexology and trigger-point therapy during massages. The spa also groups complementary services in French-inflected spa packages, some of which include a light lunch and a wink from a pygmy goat.
