Sensui Beauty Day Spa

www.sensuinewbeauty.com
We are an eco-friendly spa in Seal Beach. We focus on health and wellness by offering massages, facials, and nail treatments using organic and natural products. We've also recently begun offering yoga classes on a limited basis. Some significant measures we have incorporated include installing solar panels to generate our own electricity (as well as power the dental office next door and provide enough surplus power to the electrical grid to power the equivalent of six single family homes!), using organic cotton sheets in our treatment rooms, installing a synthetic lawn (though our plants are real!), eliminating our entire sprinkler system due to our selection of drought-resistant plants, using non-VOC paints and adhesives, installing tankless water heaters and recirculating hot-water pumps, installing rapidly-renewable bamboo floors, installing recycled carpet made from 20% post-industrial waste, using refurbished lighting, reusing or recycling up to 80% of our construction waste, and several other various measures that would be transparent to guests at our facility.
