The experienced aestheticians at Thurston House Salon & Day Spa soothe stressed-out bodies with a head-to-toe range of hot-stone treatments. The pedicure kicks off with an exfoliating sugar scrub before wringing tension from feet and calves with a 15-minute hot-stone massage. Then, nail technicians carefully shape, groom, and color toe tips, painting each digit with portraits of swine to enable more vivid retellings of "This Little Piggy." Alternately, during a 30-minute facial, spa mavens coax away dead skin cells with an exfoliation and cleansing before setting down heated stones to stimulate circulation and ease sinus pressure.
During the one-hour full-body treatment, carefully placed hot stones deepen the effects of nimble hands as they massage the back, neck, upper chest, and calves, rendering muscle knots as loose as the laces on a 5-year old’s sneakers. The full-body regimen also coddles epidermises with a Dead Sea salt scrub and extractions if needed. After the treatment, clients can relax in the waiting room’s upholstered chairs beneath the twinkling lights of an ornate chandelier or don fuzzy socks to trace figure-8s while sliding along the spa’s hardwood floors.
Thurston House Salon & Day Spa
For 20 years, Thurston House's aestheticians, massage therapists, hair stylists, and nail technicians have provided relaxing and beautifying services in a serene, well-appointed house and spa. The spa wields an FDA-approved intense-pulse light (IPL) that gently zaps the follicles of underarms and carpeted upper chests without disrupting the surrounding skin or nearby magic shows. The treatment can also ease the appearance of tattoos, scars, and stretch marks. An on-staff physician helps patients achieve cosmetic goals with facial fillers, including Botox, and a variety of facials and peels further assist faces in their quest to recapture youth. Nail technicians use paraffin, shellac, and hot stones to keep clients hands smooth and nails trim during manicures and pedicures. The staff takes extra care to ensure client comfort amid the facility’s attractive treatment rooms, which exude homey tranquility with wood floors, earth tones, and elegant chandeliers.
