Welcome to The Coolest Place on the Planet!™

Cryotherapy is a safe, natural, non-invasive cold therapy treatment that promotes and stimulates the body’s natural healing process.

In a quick 3-minute session, the surface temperature of the skin drops significantly by way of nitrogen vapor which triggers a systemic anti-inflammatory response. The result is a dramatic increase in circulation, metabolism, tissue repair, detoxification, and immune function which provides relief from basic inflammation, pain, and soreness.

Grace Threading

1060 University Avenue at The HUB Shopping Center, San Diego, CA, 92103 | 619-260-8454 |

Grace Threading offers alternative to waxing for eyebrows and facial hairs. Threading is the gentle way of removing hair from the hair follicle. Come experience the grace of threading to allow your inner beauty to be seen on the outside.

Get a free Upper Lip or Chin threading only for 1st time client! Valid Pride Month of July only!


Threading is a hair removal technique that has been practiced for centuries. Facial hair is removed swiftly yet meticulously from the most delicate areas of the face by knotting off thread and creating a trap that forces out hair by the root. It is the best alternative to waxing and tweezing, especially for sensitive skin. Unlike waxing, threading does not remove a layer of skin, which can leave the skin on your face susceptible to sun damage. By far the least invasive method of facial hair removal, threading can target individual hairs to get the precise shape and smooth finish you want.
