The Many Reasons Sanctuary Spa is Thankful

Sabrina Spa Notes, Spa Stories

November is a wonderful month to take pause, reflect on our lives and give thanks! At Sanctuary Spa we are thankful for a tremendous amount. Our family has a tradition I know a lot of families have for Thanksgiving, before eating our meal we go around the table and each person says what they are thankful for. We’d love to share some of what our spa family is thankful for this holiday season!

From our fantastic Eyebrow Specialist, Licensed Senior Esthetician & LeadCourtney, Eyebrow Specialist Hair Removal Courtney:

My First Facial: Sharing my Experience by Rashida Alisha Hagakore

Sanctuary Spa Spa Stories

Having crossed the threshold into my 30’s, the significance of my face has come to the fore. Despite my no-makeup policy, washing my hair with baking soda and vinegar, using a salt rock for deodorant, and keeping my upkeep simplistic and natural, I have been noticing little lines that don’t wash away, small changes near my eyes, subtle shifts where my smile happens in the cheeks. Balancing between accepting What Is and improving my epidermal state of affairs, I wanted to experience the ritual of the facial. Not all facials are created equal, so I am told; lucky for me my first facial happened at one of the top rated (and first) day spas Houston has ever had, Sanctuary Spa d’sante.[...]   READ MORE >
