Come January, we are gifted with a fresh start, a clean slate. Let the guilt of December indulgence fade away with the streams of holiday décor. You’ll find, without guilt holding you down, inspiration and motivation are free to take control. Want a head start? Here is the latest in San Diego wellness.
One new San Diego business helping you make the switch from holiday to healthy is bBar, a juice and superfood depot offering custom cleansing programs. Beaming is a popular brand of organic, cold pressed juices, and the flagship store is now open in Del Mar, just in time to help turn your resolution into a reality. Head to bBar for your daily juice fix, and while you’re there, pick up a salad or raw dish for lunch. If you’re ready to take your detox to the next level, sign up for one of Beaming’s four-day cleanses, with juices and supplements customized to your body type and wellness goals.

When starting a new weight loss crusade, we could all use a short cut to results. Many San Diego spas offer detoxifying body treatments that, when paired with a healthy diet and exercise, can improve the health and appearance of your skin. Skinsational’s Detox Wrap is a top pick for anyone battling cellulite and problem areas that workouts just can’t cure. This 50 minute body wrap stimulates the lymphatic system to remove toxins and reduce water retention. A three to six treatment series is recommended.
Detox Lounge makes cleansing convenient for downtown dwellers. The hip wellness refuge offers pressed organic juices and detoxifying spa treatments. If you’re suffering from fatigue, try the Aqua Detox Foot Bath with ionized water molecules. The charged water turns different colors as it draws toxins through the pores of your feet. For a full-body sweat, opt for the Infrared Sauna. Detox Lounge also sells its own brand of pressed juices available in one or three-day cleanse sets.
Wait, what is life without wine? If you’re not ready for an extreme cleanse, consider juice infused cocktails as a balanced step in the right direction. Suja, a growing brand of organic, cold-pressed juices based in San Diego, partnered with Pick & Rocks cocktail company to bring health-conscious spirits to Searsucker. Sun Salutation combines the antioxidant-rich Suja Spark lemonade with champagne; Goddess is a mix of Suja Fiji apple-celery-kale juice and cucumber gin with a twist.
