If skeletons were not contained by the muscles and skin of the human body, they would roam free to help their brethren escape from high-school anatomy classes across the nation. Cosset your bone cage with today's Groupon: for $30, you get a 30-minute hydrating mini facial or a 30-minute massage at Mon Sanctuaire in Alexandria (a $60 value each).
Mon Sanctuaire proffers an intimate sanctuary where a skillful staff coddles clients with skin-exfoliating facials and back-pampering massages. The 30-minute Esthederm hydrating mini facial commences with a face massage utilizing a calming milk-based serum that will remove makeup and relax the epidermis. Affable aestheticians then perform a deep cleaning—extracting dirt, grime, and other impurities from pores like a tiny vacuum cleaning your face rug—before refining skin texture and brightening complexions with a gentle exfoliation. A grand face-refreshing finale follows, complete with warm lavender-scented towels, a hydrating mask, and a protective moisturizer.
Patrons can also pamper soul carriers with a 30-minute massage, letting professional massage therapists rid backs of stress, tension, and desk-chair remnants. Focused on the back, neck, and shoulders, this muscle-mollifying massage soothes bodies with relaxing rolls as hot towels calm craniums and lull clients into a relaxing reverie rivaled only by swinging in a hammock made of cumulonimbus clouds.
Though Mon Sanctuaire sometimes features discounts online, this Groupon still offers the best deal available for the mini massage or mini facial.
Motivated by the belief that most people in this results-driven society often just need a safe space in which they can just breathe, Mon Sanctuaire provides a cozy atmosphere where clients can do just that. In the treatment rooms, white walls and white curtains surround patrons lying on soft white sheets, waiting for a massage session to release tension resulting from typing at a desk all day and hauling a mattress into the treehouse every night. Guests might also relax here while an aesthetician performs a facial using Institute Esthederm products to restore balance, tighten skin, or fade wrinkles. Body-care sessions such as reflexology or mud wraps with scalp massages further calm the senses.
