Venus Bodywork: French Beauty Treatments

I recently made my way to Venus Bodywork – A peaceful spa space in SOMA a few blocks south of Union Square. After meeting the Spa Manager Genevieve and chatting for a few breathless minutes – I’d quite literally run down to SOMA from my office and was a few shameful minutes late – I was left in a candle lit white room with a two page questionnaire.

While we’d emailed in advance to chat about procedures, I loved that Venus has you answer detailed questions about your habits, allergies, and goals, it’s a great way to ensure that you’re receiving the best services for your needs.

I knew that I wanted to try a body wrap since I’ve heard such amazing things in the past about these procedures. After reading through my answers and chatting about what I was hoping to achieve – Detoxifying & cleansing – Genevieve recommended their BioSlim wrap, a traditional French beauty treatment. The hallmarks of this particular treatment really appealed to me: Energizing, detoxifying, improving circulation, and relaxing.

After a quick dry brushing that I quite enjoyed, I was coated in essential oils, wrapped in plastic, and placed in a silver foil-like thermal blanket. Yes – I was basically trussed up like leftovers. But French leftovers, so that’s ok. 🙂

So you know that feeling when you’ve just finished a KILLER workout – Sweaty, endorphins pumping, and light-headed, but grinning from ear-to-ear? That’s how I felt after the 30 minute heated session. Afterwards you’re toweled off, coated in a delicious smelling caffeinated firming lotion {that I’m dying to pick-up for at-home applications}, and sent off to enjoy your beauty high.

It was a really fun experience and I’m dying to do the BioSlim treatment again as well try some of their great French beauty products.
