At Urban Massage, licensed massage therapists treat specific symptoms with the strokes, movements, and varied pressure associated with specialized massage techniques. A gentle Swedish relaxation massage unravels pent-up stress and boosts circulation, and a sports or medical massage focuses on specific problem areas to treat musculoskeletal conditions or injuries brought on by picking fights with redwood trees. For an extra fee, clients may upgrade to a deep-tissue kneading to target chronic tension, or add on an aroma-touch technique to work away stress in the soothing redolence of eight essential oils. The dedicated therapists at Urban Massage celebrate city living with their downtown location, featuring a wide-open gallery space decorated with the work of local artists.
Fusion Salon, an Aveda concept salon, offers a range of services to reenergize bodies and revamp locks. In a loft-like space with exposed brick, friendly scissor-handlers maintain manes with crisp cuts for women ($40), men ($30), and children ages 12 and younger ($25). A scalp, neck, and shoulder massage comes free of charge with all tress trimmings. Those looking for a new hue may apply this deal to a color job, such as a partial highlight/lowlight ($60). Overworked bodies can send themselves to a timeout in a massage room, where soft lighting, soothing music, and natural Aveda aromatherapy oils induce serenity comas. A 30-minute relaxation massage releases pressure as a licensed therapist gently glides capable clappers over the body canvas ($40). During a 30-minute deep-tissue massage, a tension thwarter kneads dermal dough until all kinks, knots, and hidden flourballs vanish ($45).
At just a glance, the boutique might look an antique shop. A wrought-iron chandelier dangles just inside the entrance, its orange lights casting a bronze glow on the tile ceiling. This initial impression is fitting for Cheveux the Spa, where stylists and aestheticians tend to guests at workstations converted from vintage dressers and ornate mirrors. Amid Renaissance-style paintings, they coif hair, slick nails in pretty polish, massage tension out of bodies, and wax rogue body hair.
