Spa at the Mission San Juan Capistrano’s Partnership with Yon-Ka Paris
Not all journeys are measured in miles. At the Spa at the Mission San Juan Capistrano, every step toward wellness is a journey in itself and Yon-Ka Paris products are the driving force behind each one. Not only are Yon-Ka’s phyto-aromatic therapies featured in a variety of spa treatments, but guests are invited to continue their wellness journey at home with a selection of retail products.
Spa Manager Donna Sullivan recommends the Swallows Anti-Aging Facial, the spa’s most requested and personally satisfying treatment experiences. She says, “When our guests look in the mirror and see their beautiful skin, it affects their whole mindset, which in turn affects their entire body’s health.”
This facial minimizes fine lines, leaving the skin feeling renewed and radiant as a visible reflection of their restored spirit and rebalanced mindset. Other Yon-Ka treatments available at the Spa at the Mission include Le Grande Classique, Aroma-Fusion Body Scrub, and Wellness Escape with Digit Pressures.
When it comes to at-home skincare, Donna Sullivan enjoys Excellence Code and Lotion Yon-Ka. But her favorite is Phyto Contour, going as far as saying that it is “is the best eye cream” she has ever used.
Whether you’re looking for a relaxing full-body massage or a professional skincare treatment, the team at the Spa at the Mission is equipped to customize a program to fit your specific needs.
