4 SF Bay Area Spas to Help You Recover From the Holidays

If you’re like most of us, you’ve pushed your body to the limit this holiday season in San Francisco. You spent more time lifting cocktail glasses than weights and there was more debauchery going on than downward dogs. Now that we’re into the new year, get a new you going with a trip to one of these SF Bay Area spas.

Check into the Mandarin Oriental, San Francisco, which is offering a New Year, New You wellness package that combines an overnight stay with an enticing way to recharge and detoxify after the indulgence of the holiday season. The New Year, New You wellness package features a unique spa journey at the hotel’s Five-Star Spa that promises to rejuvenate the body. The experience begins with the Natura Bisse Sculpting Treatment. Following an in-depth consultation with a spa therapist, you’ll choose a sculpting program that re-contours, firms and reduces visible signs of cellulite. The treatment also includes the application of a Vitamin C body cream to keep skin soft and smooth to the touch. You’ll then be treated to The Cure Facial, a thorough cleansing procedure based on cutting-edge thermoactive, enzymatic detoxification that opens and softens the pores with refreshing botanical elements. Extractions are expertly performed while the nano-stimulating mask with a deliciously foamy texture efficiently releases its moisturizing, soothing and revitalizing effects on the skin. To finish the spa journey, sip on a cleansing green juice while relaxing in the Spa’s Tea Lounge.

You can practice your asanas in your tranquil guest room, which includes yoga mats and instructional DVDs. For a personal touch, book a private training session to jump start healthy exercise habits and embrace the year ahead with a new focus on personal wellness. Valid from January 1 until May 31, 2015, the package is priced from $1,165 and based on double occupancy.
