Before she could treat other women’s bodily ailments, Taylor had to learn to care for her own. She was training as a dancer and learning to deal with the impact of both physical pain and mental stress on her body. She noted that massage had a remarkable ability to encourage her body's natural chemicals to reduce stress, improve mood, and even ease pain. Inspired to provide hands-on care to other women, she enrolled at the San Francisco School of Massage and Bodywork, training in Swedish, deep-tissue, and trigger-point therapy. Her specialty, however, quickly became prenatal and postpartum massage. Today, she regularly works with expectant and new moms, and can even attend labor, delivery, and stork flyovers. She exclusively works with women in her standard massages as well, and takes pride in a sense of intuition that helps her customize each massage to each customer.
Since everyone experiences life through one medium—their bodies—professional Rolfer Jed Bentley uses his hands-on skills to ensure those bodies are in good working order. As a certified Rolfer, Jed has studied the ways in which all parts of the body are connected, and he knows how to correct ailments with manual adjustments of the fascia—the body's connective tissue. When fascia constricts, it causes bodily pain and poor posture. Once it has been adjusted during a Rolfing session, the body can stand taller and straighter without any additional effort and with less pain. Jed emphasizes that Rolfing addresses emotional troubles as well as physical ones—clients should be open to long-lasting emotional change as well as physical, usually within a few months. Clients who wish to better acquaint themselves with the Rolfing process can peruse the FAQ here.
Eponymous spa owner Lucia believes that a person’s beauty is a reflection of his or her own health and inner happiness, and that happiness should shine as brightly as possible. To help clients up their wattage, Lucia supports a healthy glow with a repertoire of technologically enhanced beauty treatments that echo Eastern and Western philosophies—traditional natural remedies coexisting with modern beauty solutions.
Lucia's favorite service is the microphototherapy treatment, during which gentle pulses of light dissipate traces of age and acne while purging pores with a blast of light bright enough to help follicles catch up on their reading. Dedicated to helping her clients find the best skin solution for them, Lucia also helps reap clearer skin with a natural herbal peel, which she massages into the skin with detoxifying kneading actions.
When April Antz first opened Bevel Salon, she wanted to foster a diverse atmosphere while focusing on sustainable practices. In pursuit of this goal, she hired a team of extensively trained, culturally sensitive stylists and compiled a collection of organic and plant-based styling products. Made by Davines, these shampoos, conditioners, and balancing treatments boast ingredient labels brimming with natural botanicals and free of synthetic chemicals, allergens, and blond jokes. The salon also wields the Davines Mask Color System, which employs a milk-protein base to soothe scalps and bolster hair-shaft health when clients return home. Because Bevel Salon's stylists flaunt unique hair types of their own, they're especially suited to sculpt and nourish locks of many shapes, textures, and hues, especially in services such as weaves and relaxers.
For nearly 20 years, the tan technicians at Soleil Tanning Salons have transformed pasty soul sacks into bronze living statues using UV and UV-free tanning techniques. Before tan sessions, friendly staffers educate patrons on how to get the most out of tans by using tanning lotions designed to stimulate melanin and extend the life of darker dermises. Soleil Tanning Salons are equipped with standing and horizontal tanning beds as well as UV-free MagicTan booths. The automated process typically takes 60 seconds and gives skin a golden glow thanks to micromists of custom tanner. No matter what bronzing method is chosen, tanners can rest easy knowing they will avoid burns associated with sunbathing atop radioactive beach towels.
