Enjoy a full spa day or a single treatment at the beautiful, serene Osmosis Spa in Freestone. Try their signature cedar enzyme bath or one of their delicious facials using organic high quality skincare products, the writer recommends the Repair and Revitalize facial, which improves the effects of sun damage, firms the skin and reduces deep lines.

This little Sebastopol gem comes straight from the heart of owner Tiffany Heiden and offers beautiful treatments such as the Crystal Healer or Emerald Dream facials.

For more than just relaxation, we recommend the BT-cocktail Lift, which is a non-surgical anti-aging treatment. It employs the aid of a micro-current device that mimics the body’s natural electrical current to re-educate and stimulate facial muscles with minimal amounts of electricity, toning your face, with immediate results.

May I recommend the Vintners Resort Signature Facial, which uses advanced Vitamin C technology and fresh whole food ingredients to boost skin’s natural radiance, aid in collagen production, and protect against free radical damage. Add on an eye or neck ultra lift and a coconut sugar scrub for the ultimate experience.
