Usually used for good, vacuums occasionally flip alignments and eat our loose change, flirt with our spouses, or rip a hole in the time-space continuum. Harness the awesome power of suction with today's Groupon: for $45, you get a Detox package, which includes a Synergie cellulite and toxin-reduction aesthetic massage, 15-minute aromatherapy foot massage, and detox tea (a $180 value) at The Sanctuary Day Spa on Cable Street.

The Synergie treatment utilizes revolutionary vacuum massage therapy to reduce the appearance of cellulite and aid in bodily detoxification. After clients slip into a full-body jumpsuit, a deep-massage vacuum is guided across the surface of their fleshoskeleton. The procedure is a relaxing alternative to invasive surgery with the added benefits of improved circulation and the reduction of lactic-acid buildup. Purchase multiple Groupons and proceed to marvel at the improvements over several sessions. Every Detox package at The Sanctuary begins with a dreamy foot-soak and massage accompanied by generous helpings of organic chocolates and hand-blended detoxifying tea, a familiar complement to the high-tech Synergie treatment.

The Sanctuary Day Spa is housed in a luxurious but cozy cottage, whose interior glows with warm lighting, whitewashed walls, and burnished wood floors. The private treatment room is lit by crystal chandeliers and soft, stress-melting candlelight. Each and every client who enters is treated like a world-class celebrity, minus the paparazzi hidden in the sink faucets and cumbersome, solid-gold footwear. Call ahead to schedule your appointment.


Ocean magazine named The Sanctuary the Best Boutique Spa in San Diego in 2009. Seven Yelpers award The Sanctuary an average of 4.5 stars, and six CityVoters bestow upon it a perfect five stars:

  • Tucked away in a cottage-style house, owner Tracy Duhs has created a true haven at The Sanctuary, offering a delightful full day-spa experience in an elegant and charming atmosphere. With elite services and a celebrity following, The Sanctuary offers customized, state-of-the-art skin care, using only the purest organic ingredients (including the water), massages and waxing…Every experience will have you feeling and looking like a star. – Alexa Malkasian, Ocean
  • Each person absolutely feels like THE most important person when they walk in to the door. I can't recommend this Spa more highly! – suemotleygrant, CityVoter

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., 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.
