In one of the most miraculous transformations in the natural world, an ugly caterpillar wraps itself in a cocoon and emerges six to eight weeks later as either a beautiful butterfly or a much-uglier caterpillar. Revel in more predictable and effective beautifying treatments with today's Groupon for spa services at The Encinitas Spa in the Moonlight Plaza downtown. Choose between the following options:
- For $55, you get a choice of a detoxifying Black Baltic Body Mud wrap, a hydrating European Rose Body Mud wrap, or a toning Firmi-Sea Body Mud wrap (up to a $110 value)
- For $25, you get $65 worth of body sugaring hair-removal services
The Encinitas Spa whisks clients away to a soothing escape from stress, where expert aestheticians pamper bodies and repair flagging facades with a variety of services. Revitalize work-weathered bone sacks with your choice of 75-minute body wrap, where algae, minerals, vitamins, oils, and organic silts soak into the skin to detoxify, tone, moisturize, and Jazzercise. Or raze unwanted fuzz orchards with a sugaring hair removal, in which a paste of sugar, lemon juice, and other natural ingredients combine to lastingly defuzz the underarms ($20), brows ($25), bikini area ($35), and other areas.
- If you’re looking for an intimate experience where you will be one on one with highly trained holistic practitioners and estheticians, while escaping the typical oversized and busy spa setting, then The Encinitas Spa is a recommended North County refuge for you. – Michelle Guerin, DiscoverSD
- I also got a facial here before my massage and honestly, I felt like I was glowing for weeks afterwords [sic]! – Shaun G., Yelp
The Encinitas Spa
The Encinitas Spa's specialty is skincare, a logical choice given the exposure bodies get in the local surfing community. To ready clients for Speedo season, certified body sugarers smooth on a low-temperature sugar formula that is less likely to yank tender tissues than conventional wax, but more capable of picking up very fine hairs without cheesy lines. Medical-grade products from PCA Skin work alone to peel away damaged cells, or in tandem with a Clarisonic Pro brush to thoroughly cleanse pores. Eight types of massage compliment these treatments, and are performed by certified holistic-health practitioners, who have honed their healing touch during at least 1,000 hours of training, and massage therapists with at least 500 hours of training. In addition to encouraging citizens to hit the beach, the team strengthens ties to the community through charitable work, recently participating in a fundraiser for the Susan G. Komen foundation.
