Choose Between Two Options

- Two 60-minute aromatherapy-massage combos with herbal foot soaks and tea
Massage therapists equipped with all-natural aromatherapy essential oil and lotion glide their hands over bodies and feet during 60-minute massages. Massage benefits may include improved nervous, circulatory, lymphatic, immune, and muscular systems. Feet then soak in a bath that includes a powder bag that sterilizes the foot, eliminates odor, and facilitates circulation. Foot-soak benefits may include reducing foot fatigue and combating stress.
The Foot Spa and Tea Bar
If The Foot Spa and Tea Bar’s the trickling water fountain, botanical art, and drifting herbal aromas don’t immediately mark it as a tranquil haven, its lengthy list of commendations will. Readers of Oakland Magazine named it the Best Spa in 2012 and the Best Place to Treat Your Feet in 2011, and the magazine's editors called it the Most Relaxing Place to Take a Load Off in 2010. The cozy, Asian-inspired spa has also been nominated in the Best Day Spa category on the San Francisco A-List.
Inside the spa’s lauded confines, skilled massage therapists and reflexologists perform treatments ranging from acupressure and shiatsu sessions to soothing aromatherapy massages with lavender, ginger, and peppermint essential oils. At the tea bar, guests sip complimentary loose-leaf varieties grown in the mountains of China while gargling responses to the nearby water fountain.
