Sanda Gane European Day Spa
The owners of Sanda Gané European Day Spa, Sanda Gané and Maxine Turner, boast a menu of facial, massage, and waxing services. While visitors yield their bodies to head-to-toe makeovers, they abandon their stresses in the spa’s tranquil setting free of the outside world’s cell-phone ringtones, honking horns, and hyenas overcome by hysterical laughter. In a flurry of scissor snips and haircare products, stylists cut and color outmoded hairdos, and manicurists groom and polish natural backscratchers. The spa’s medical staff wields lasers that blast away body hair and reduce the appearance of wrinkles and spider veins. Also, MediQuick weight-loss plans whittle away unwanted pounds with appetite suppressants and dietary advice.
