The Ivy Day Spa
Expands Services and Maintains Award-winning Staff
April, 2012 - Issue #90
The Ivy Day Spa may have a familiar-sounding name and coveted location (the former residence of Glen Ivy Day Spa on Town Center Drive), but don't let those elements fool you; this is a new spa with a fresh take on relaxation and the ultimate in comfort.

New owners Eric Smith and Faye Morse are no strangers to "spa-ing." With a first-hand awareness of the staff's excellent skills, they made sure that the gifted, professional masseuses, nail technicians, estheticians and more stayed on to provide reputable service to clients old and new.

The space, however, received an upgrade of fresh style, with a greater focus on every client's comfort. To further provide the best relaxation, healing and wellness opportunities for the community, Pilates and yoga classes have been added to the repertoire. Highly-experienced teachers, including well-known Pilates instructor Dotsy Marquez, are ready to guide you towards your pinnacle of wellbeing.

"Spring Clean" with an Orange Blossom Sugar Scrub
Now is the time to shed dry, old winter skin. You'll want to show off your glowing bod after The Ivy Day Spa's famous hydrating treatment: the Orange Blossom Sugar Meringue Scrub, Shea Butter Wrap & Swedish Massage. Engage your senses and put your body/mind/soul into alignment with this uber-relaxing 80-minute treatment. Guests rave about the results ("My skin feels like butter!" is a common reaction.) and the price is right, too. Only $139.

The Ivy Day Spa Sampler
The "Chocolate Sun" Experience
Look like you just returned from a tropical vacation - without leaving the SCV. Check in to receive your cozy robe, locker access and spa sandals. Then breathe in deep while cleansing your body with a gentle Lemongrass & Sage wash. Next, exfoliate and prep your skin for the ultimate in sunless tanning with an exclusive, aromatic scrub by Flowers Organic. The long-lasting, deep tan nourishes your skin while it gives you a natural, healthy glow. Complete your service with an unlimited stay in the Solarium.

The One & Only Grotto
Relax with friends - or treat yourself to too-rare solitude - at The Grotto. Available a la carte (except on Saturdays) or paired with the treatment of your choice, you'll start your moisturizing experience with an exfoliating bamboo scrub. Your body, comfortably clothed in swimwear, will then be "painted" with a warm, soothing aloe vera, shea butter and coconut oil mask. Then you'll travel at your leisure through the varied-temperature Grotto chambers.

Exclusive Retail Selection
Fabulous gifts (to give to others - and yourself) and skin care products can be found within The Ivy's well-appointed retail space. Right now you'll find the brand-new (and not-yet nationally launched) Moroccan Oil body line, which joins the much-celebrated and always-in-stock hair line. Discover new favorites, too. Glo Therapeutics will make your skin luminescent. Good-for-you products from Mistral, Sonoma Lavender and Fernando's unique faux fur pillows and scarves are beautifully displayed next to handmade jewelry from around the world perfect for every occasion.
