There is nothing like a weekend spa day to make you feel motivated to hit the ground running on Monday. Ensuring you are rested and relaxed over the weekend helps to guarantee that you feel rejuvenated and ready to face the challenges of your week.

After my recent visit to AquaVie Spa, I can assure you too will have a relaxing experience from start to finish. After you schedule your appointment, you will receive a lovely confirmation email from the spa staff with the details of the service(s) you have reserved. Your confirmation email also details clear directions and parking instructions. If you are not familiar with the Gaslamp area knowing exactly where you are going and where you will leave your car will put your mind at ease. The spa offers complimentary parking for 2 hours while you enjoy your treatment which is an additional bonus. 

The valet staff will greet you with a smile, park your car and point you to the spa entrance. When you exit the elevator, you will see most inviting wall fountain. The deep blue hues of the wall accompanied by the bubbling sounds of cascading water will cause you to relax immediately.

Once you enter the spa, the staff will show you to your digital locker and give you a tour of the facilities should you choose to enjoy andy of the many amenities, including the sauna, steam room, fitness center or rooftop pool before your scheduled appointment. 

I chose to experience the 50-minute Elevated Wellness Facial because the description was so alluring. "Rebalance skin tone and relieve stress with a completely customized facial that leverages the power of natural-origin active ingredients." I found the service met everyone of the promised expectations.

Sofia was my esthetician, and I was very impressed with her. From start to finish she gave me choices that would allow me to customize my spa service. Sofia started by asking if I'd prefer to relax in silence or if I would prefer to chat about the facial as we went along. Sofia then evaluated my skin to determine how she could best serve my individual needs. After a refreshing cleaning and a soothing face massage, Sofia applied a fruit peel.  While the peel set, she gave me the option of reflexology vs. an arm and hand massage. Sofia is very in tune with what her client's wants and needs are. From start to finish, every aspect of my facial was "custom" as promised in the description of services.

I cannot wait for my next visit to AquaVie. I encourage you to take a look at the extensive menu and schedule your appointment today. For those of you who are old fashioned and prefer to call to schedule an appointment, the AquaVie staff would be happy to assist you at (619) 557-3668.
