The flavors of the holidays make for many culinary delights. That is a given. Pumpkin, cranberry, apple, vanilla, cinnamon and peppermint are flavors that reoccur every year, yet always seem fresh. At a time when calendars quickly fill up and consumption of all sorts is increased, taking the time to indulge in you should be a priority. And receiving the gift of relaxation and indulgence is one of the best ideas around. Several local spas have tweaked their menus to include seasonal ingredients. We pick five of the most delicious.
There are good San Francisco spas and there are better ones. International Orange has always kept a low profile as one of the better ones. Never compromising quality, and always delivering luxury, IO has launched an initiative to keep up with the Living Socials and Groupons of the city. But you have to be flexible and ready to relax. Ready?
A mainstay on the chichi stretch of Fillmore in Lower Pac Heights for the past 9 years, International Orange still has the same allure as it did when it first opened. It's an urban oasis in the middle of a bustling neighborhood and offers two types of yoga, massage, acupuncture, facials, peels, and waxing. If you haven't been already, it's about time you go check it out.
