Beauty Kliniek Aromatherapy Day Spa & Wellness Center
This is what may be referred to admiringly as a working women’s spa (although there are plenty of treatments for men, too). The environment is soft and soothing, but with 45 employees, there’s a good amount of activity going on here, even if it is in the mandatory quiet mode for the proper spa atmosphere.
Beauty Kliniek and its founder/operator, Linda-Anne Kahn, have written a bit of history in the San Diego spa book. The facility, which opened in 1982 in a 350-square-foot space at The Marketplace in University City, was the city’s first day spa, and now (at more than 11,000 square feet) it’s one of the largest. Kahn, regarded by peers as one of the industry’s great visionaries, knows her mind/ body/spirit connection; the spa’s brochure of services weighs in at 50-plus pages, and Kahn says she will not offer a treatment that she is not qualified to perform herself. Aromatherapy and manual lymph drainage are specialties.
For the day-two spa escape, Kahn recommends your correspondent try the silver ion facial therapy under the caring hands of Jocelyn. Silver, Kahn explains, has been used for centuries to assist in healing, and the ion therapy is offered as an alternative to microdermabrasion.
Jocelyn begins the facial with a warm steam, followed by a 15-minute deep exfoliation massage that incorporates magnesium crystals and a lovely blend of lemon, lime, orange and grapeseed oils. She then places an ice-cold silver ion mask—actually a heavy piece of silk impregnated with silver—over the face, to reduce inflammation and stimulate tissue growth. Jocelyn says silver helps change the electromagnetic fields on the face, but your correspondent nods off at this point, and the treatment’s finer alchemy details are lost on her.
Happily, after a day of minor face tingling and a bit of pinkness, a few of those pesky fine lines in the face seem to have relocated elsewhere. No effort is made to find them.
