Toscana European Day Spa
European-trained owner and biochemist Doina Mandrila and her team of aestheticians perform soothing spa services inspired by international beauty traditions. The Orient Essence Ceremony incorporates smooth Balinese pebbles and exotic oils into a relaxing massage, and the full-body hydration of the Velvet Skin Miracle mimics the thermal springs of the city of Spa in Belgium. The spa’s luxurious facials slather skin in natural ingredients, such as dandelion and moisturizing honey. Staff also specialize in gentlemen's facials and treatments formulated specifically for teenage skin issues, such as acne. Waxing services customize or banish body hair, while massage therapy leaves bodies in a state more relaxed than if Mr. Rogers governed Hawaii.
