At St. Pierre Massage and Spa, staff share a natural approach to health and beauty. Fleece-lined, heated tables and organic-cotton blankets invite guests to relax as licensed massage therapists ease away aches with Swedish and deep-tissue massages, augmented by aromatherapy oils and warm basalt stones. Facial treatments, which range from custom masks to AHA grape-infused peel treatments, rely on organic ingredients as they refresh faces. The Napa Valley Register recently covered St. Pierre Massage and Spa?s move from its former healing haven to its current downtown palace of tranquility. Alongside descriptions of the expanded pampering space, the article notes the uniqueness of the spa?s vegan, organic nail treatments and whisper-only policy. To complement the move, a newly expanded menu of services lures clients in to relax amid the shades of cocoa and green.
After a 25-year tenure as a massage therapist, Taja Cox breathed new life into her career by becoming a licensed esthetician. She now uses both sets of talents to help clients at Relaxation Co. Skin Spa and Acne Clinic who come to her with chronic pain, acne, and sports-related injuries. When it comes to skincare, Taja calms skin with custom facials and lullabies, and dampens the effects of wrinkles with chemical peels. Her massages target ailing muscles in need of tension relief, and special techniques help clients undergoing surgery or chemotherapy to relieve their post-treatment fatigue. Further services outside the box include Taja?s facial and massage combinations that can help clients achieve an all-over relaxation more effectively than wearing clothing woven from chamomile leaves.
The steady-handed beauticians at Eyebrow Art meticulously neaten eyebrows, upper lips, and other areas of the face with an ancient hair-removal technique that reveals smooth, fuzz-free skin. At their seven salon locations, they roll twists of cotton thread quickly over clients’ skin to remove hair at the follicle––a safer method of hair removal than standing next to a sneezing dragon. Throughout the process, clients lean back in comfortable chairs as the staff gently escorts unwanted stubble from the premises.
As a boutique-style salon, The Painted Lady Tanning & Spa offers airbrush tanning, Mystic Tan sunless tanning, UV tanning, and anti-aging infrared-light therapy, as well as a range of massage, facial, and waxing services. The staff guides beginners through their first sessions, allowing clients to get acquainted with the equipment, such as the Beauty Angel, before taking it for a spin or on a second date. They also assist guests in the process of selecting their desired level of tan, choosing from three levels of color that range from light to dark?or, as the salon refers to them, from "the Longoria" to "the Kardashian" to "the Snooki."
Earth tones and wood accents play their part in creating a calming atmosphere at M.Y. Life Holistic Salon Spa, founded by registered nurse Kyle O'Hara. The salon and spa's experts spruce up manes and use holistic skin treatments to combat the signs of aging. With MTV and BBC styling and makeup credits to her name, award-winning master colorist Mia Burk spoils strands with high-end, organic and vegan-friendly products made from distilled good karma. O'Hara curates a collection that includes serums especially chosen to accommodate a wide variety of skin tones. The products purveyed by the salon spa revolve around a three-prong philosophy of detoxification, rebuilding, and results maintenance.
