People should always take time to focus on themselves, especially when they feel stressed or are walking toward a mirror. Relax your reflection with today’s Groupon: for $55, you get a spa package at The Sanctuary Day Spa (a $110 total value). The package includes the following:
- Herbal slimming-and-detox foot soak (a $60 value)
- Phyto conditioning treatment with scalp massage (a $50 value)
- Complimentary organic tea bar<p>
The Sanctuary Day Spa’s attentive therapists soothe stress with premium products and skilled services in an airy, bright retreat. Cups of hand-blended teas from the organic tea bar warm hands from the inside out while arches soak in heat from an herbal solution meant to put the body at ease and draw out toxins that often cause swelling. Therapists massage feet to induce relaxation throughout their clients’ forms by twisting nozzles in the soles that send waves of tranquility traveling up from toes. A French Phyto botanical conditioning formula swathes strands in a luster-inducing brew that strengthens locks and brings out their natural shine. Reinvigorated manes are complemented with a scalp massage that activates acupressure points on the head to alleviate the strain of wearing Miss America’s crown during public appearances.
Hardwood panels cover the floor through out the spa to complement its charming, comfortable décor. Modern light fixtures and soft colors illuminate private treatment rooms and a welcoming area instead of clinical fluorescent lights and stethoscope murals.
The Sanctuary Day Spa
Pearls, crystal chandeliers, and white roses grace the country-chic interior of The Sanctuary Day Spa, once a 1950s cottage. But as attention grabbing as these embellishments are, it is the lack of patronage that is more noticeable. To make each guest feel like a VIP member, owner Tracy Duhs and her team only schedule one client at a time. This approach, coupled with cups of hand-blended organic tea, has earned the private spa high praise from local and national press. DiscoveredSD.com, for example, gave high marks to the spa’s ultimate facial, which blends vacuum massage, microdermabrasion, and red-light therapy with fragrant skincare products. Numerous publications have raved about the spa's Synergie vacuum-massage treatment, which can reduce cellulite as it detoxifies the body.
The spa space is also packed with high-end products, from herbal-infused Jadience creams, used during customized massages, to Jane Iredale mineral cosmetics, used to cover imperfections and age spots that relay one’s true birth date in Morse code. Clients are also invited to browse a collection of Arcona, Enessa, Bella Luxx, and Fenton Fallon products, which Tracy handpicks from around the world.
