Hypnosis shatters the barrier between the conscious and the subconscious, allowing thoughts to flow freely between the two. Hypnotherapist Rosie seizes this brief opportunity to plant new ideas deep in the subconscious, where she hopes they’ll snowball into conscious thoughts and actions. At HypnoRosie, she uses her unique gift to help her clients stave off addiction, bad habits, stress, and even pain. By remolding the way they think about food or creating a phantom gastric lap band, Rosie can jump-start weight loss. She strives to replace cravings for cigarettes with ones for lungfuls of fresh air. She can even ease the trauma of childbirth or help old souls access their former lives, all without surgery, medication, or snapping a rubber band on your wrist every time you reach for a smoke.
For nearly a decade, the skincare professionals at Lan’s Skin Care and Health Spa have maintained a relaxing haven that stimulates the body's capacity to heal. With each service, they attend to emotional and physical needs, adhering to the belief that mind, body, and spirit are as inextricably linked as peanut butter and the roof of your mouth. Aestheticians ease the mind with quiet treatment rooms, and relax the body by punctuating facials with hand, foot, and shoulder massages. Together, these efforts uplift the spirit and foster overall wellness.
Acne treatments and deep-skin-cleaning services dot the menu alongside permanent-makeup applications that enhance natural features. Lending equal credence to the areas beneath the neck, the specialists perform body wraps and offer steam and sauna therapy.
The past 14 years of Debi Raya's career has been dedicated to helping athletes and expectant mothers prepare and work through some of the most important events in their lives. After training at the National Holistic Institute, she gained membership into the American Massage Therapy Association and the Performance Plus Sports Massage Team. With that backing, she went on to ease the aches of both amateur and professional athletes and even traveled to Europe with the USA Triathalon team for their world-championship events.
Today she brings her kneads to private clients in her own practice, which includes sports massage and pregnancy massage. Having spent time training to be a midwife, Debi also coaches mothers through their labor pains as a doula.
Licensed aestheticians and massage therapists Kaitlyn and Sangria of Zen for Men ignore the myth that women alone long for pampering. The two unwind masculine muscles with Swedish and Esalen massage techniques, keep whiskers in check with professional barbering, and revamp rugged visages with facials. The interior crackles with charcoal-black accents set off against walls the bright red of the Kool-Aid Man realizing he ran through the wall of the wrong house. Beneath gold statuettes, potted orchids, and hanging art, crimson blankets drape across massage beds.
The licensed massage therapists at Lamorinda Reflexology & Wellness perform muscle-management services designed to alleviate tension and treat chronic pain.
