After reading today’s headline, you probably expected to see an image of a massage table. Instead, we’re kicking this post off with dining tables. But we’re getting ahead of ourselves. More about the tables above later…
First, let’s take a drive through San Francisco’s lovely Presidio area…
Here you’ll find SenSpa Wellness Center, located amongst the pine and cypress trees within historic, 1917-build World War I Army barracks.
We don’t know about you, but drives don’t usually bliss us out. This one is an exception. Check out all the gorgeous views!
Upon arrival at SenSpa, we make a beeline for their new, organic cafe. Yep, those would be the tables in this post’s very first photo. Served up fresh are salads, entrees and gluten-free desserts from The Plant. As for beverages, beer and wine are included on the menu.
What we ordered: The Scarlet Quinoa Salad (gluten-free) with roasted beets, parsley, mint, cherry tomatoes in olive oil and lemon dressing. That was followed by Flying Bird tea and a coconut mango macaroon (we have a “never skip dessert” policy).
Luring to stay a while is the SenSpa Warming Room. Nothing better to fend off the Northern California chill.
Poring over the treatment menu, we were torn between four choices: the Lemongrass Bamboo Scrub, SenZen Body Ritual, Island Indulgence and Japan Body Bliss.
We decided to start with the 30-minute Lemongrass Bamboo Scrub that sloughs off dead skin (something Daily Concepts is all about!) and encourages circulation.
Paired with this was the 90-minute, Japan Body Bliss Treatment with an aromatherapy mineral bath soak as an add-on.
A seven-step treatment, the Japan Body Bliss targets the senses, releasing a flow of vital energy through aromas like plum, yuzu and bamboo. Not to be left out is a Swedish/shiatsu massage with lime oil. I’m pretty sure if you heard purring that afternoon, it was coming from our treatment room.
After reaching Nirvana, it was time to head home. Not before checking out SenSpa’s shopping opportunities.
Some products we were told would keep our skin feeling as delicious as it was post-treatment? You guessed it!
The Daily Concepts collection! Yep, we knew we felt right at home. Thanks, SenSpa!
