The Spa Treatments We're Signing up for Now in San Diego

BY Ann Wycoff | March 13, 2018 | Feature Features

When it comes to spa treatments, San Diego can claim first-mover status on some of the most therapeutic, trendiest and—most importantly—best-feeling treatments out there. Here are just a few of our spring go-tos, and where to get them.
Four Moons Spa

Alternative Sunshine Therapy

The sun delivers Vitamin D, which boosts the immune system, helps prevent osteoporosis, and acts as a key component in fighting various cancers, according to Dr. Andrew Weil. But believe it or not, despite San Diego’s 300-plus sunny days, an alarming number of locals have low levels of this important vitamin. For a luxurious dose of Vitamin D, try the Resurfacing Body Wrap at The Lodge at Torrey Pines spa. After a dry brush and glycolic gel exfoliation, the body is covered with VitaD Fortified Topical Elixir (created by local C-bad company Skin Authority) and wrapped snugly, so that healing D can be absorbed internally while you enjoy a scalp massage. Afterward, a light massage with olive, fig and shea butter leaves your skin velvety smooth. 80 minutes/$235, 11480 N Torrey Pines Rd, La Jolla

Best “Facial for your Scalp”

Notch up the bliss factor of your next facial or massage experience at Paradise Point Spa with a 25-minute, MoroccanOil Scalp Treatment. This Ayurvedic Shirodhara-style treatment (shiro means “head” and dhara means “flow”) calm the nervous system as warm, antioxidant-rich argan oil, infused with geranium and lavender, is rubbed into head, penetrating the hair follicles and skin. Scalp massage increases serotonin production to elevate your mood and enhances blood circulation, which stimulates hair growth. So you can relax, get happy and leave with lustrous locks. 25-min add-on/$45, 1404 Vacation Road, San Diego
