Back and shoulder massage

August in Texas means 2 things to me → SO MUCH HEAT!! And Back to School! While there isn’t much to do about the heat (except escape it by staying indoors as much as possible or jump in the nearest pool) there is plenty to do to prepare for back to school … like have some back to spa time!!

Whether you’re a parent like me and have been running around all summer focused on which camp your kids are going to or figuring out the next vacation/staycation plans
– OR–
You’re a teacher (or superhero, as I like to a call you!) and have spent the summer either enjoying some classroom free days or tied up in yet another in-service or summer school,
– OR–
You’re a student about to return to the grind of classes and homework … please take this moment NOW and plan some spa time. Think of it as a little self-care escape to tend to your needs![...]   READ MORE >

Expert Tips to Help You Care for Oily Skin

Sarah At-Home Tips & DIY , , , , ,
Woman with Glowing Complexion

It seems like we always wish to have the type of skin opposite of what we were given. If you have dry skin, you are fed up with the feeling of tight skin and always needing to reapply moisturizer to keep your skin from looking dull and flaky. With oily skin, most fight acne and breakouts and long for the feeling of balanced skin. Needless to say, each skin type has its own challenges, but for us at the spa it is oily and acne-prone skin that has many of our guests struggling to find effective at-home treatments.[...]   READ MORE >

The Minkyti® Facial – The Best Facial on the Planet for Dry and Aging Skin

Paul Service Spotlight, Spa Notes , , ,
Relaxing Facial Massage at Sanctuary Spa

One of our main concerns for our skin is preventing and reducing the visible signs of aging. To do that, we must infuse dry and aging skin with nourishing essential vitamins, minerals, trace elements, amino acids and enzymes.  When the skin is dry, sloughing of dead skin cells is too slow and circulation is minimal, all resulting in sluggish cell renewal and a reduction in that healthy glow that keeps us looking young.

With our unique Minkyti® Facial*, we combine expert techniques that go to the core of what’s causing skin to weaken and age. No other method is as comprehensive in naturally stimulating your complexion to look its best. Deep cleansing and exfoliation are combined with shiatsu pressure point and connective tissue massage to increase circulation to the connective tissues of the face, neck and décolleté area, allowing for greater penetration of nourishment directly into the skin.[...]   READ MORE >
