The certified massage therapists at Comfort Pro Massage send soothing echoes through muscle walls with their signature bodywork. In the comfort of a cozy, private room, clients can opt for flowing Swedish strokes or deep-tissue techniques for deeper muscles. The studio also specializes in acupressure, which draws on ancient techniques to unblock energy channels and promote wellness.
While in college, Doctor of Chiropractic Dennis Ngai suffered injuries from a severe car accident, interfering with his studies and setting him adrift. He found the tonic for his injuries in chiropractic care, discovering his career calling in the process. Whether clients find themselves in a situation like Dr. Ngai's or simply seek preventive care, the doctor and his staff at Daly City Chiropractic Center tend to individual health concerns with physical therapy, reflexology, massage therapy, and comprehensive chiropractic care. Dr. Ngai created the massage wellness center to help his community live a stress-free lifestyle.
Le Juin Day Spa & Clinic, appropriately named for the month that epitomizes summer, keeps skin radiant and clients as relaxed as if they had just spent a sunny day on the beach. Facials nourish skin and help roll back the signs of aging, such as wrinkles and hyperpigmentation, to reveal youthful glows that would make even the Gerber Baby jealous. Salt scrubs and mud wraps similarly rejuvenate skin beneath the neck, and waxing gets rid of unwanted hair, wherever it dwells. Massage therapists sap away stresses with the gentle kneading of hot-stone and aromatherapy massages, leaving guests refreshed as they head back into the world.
The licensed acupuncturists of Remedy Acupuncture Clinic bring balance to bodily systems with five Chinese medicine techniques. Acupuncture treatments unblock energy highways with the precise placement of fine needles, relieving stress and orthopedic injury. Massage sessions meld the deep tissue, acupressure, and neuromuscular therapy modalities to restore range of motion and relieve pain.
To continue healing in the home, the clinic's staff teaches breathing and movement exercises for daily practice. They recommend herbal treatments from Kan, New Chapter, and Evergreen to accompany nutritional advice, which emphasizes moderate dietary transitions in order to support weak organ systems and stomachs that haven't learned how to growl yet.
Irwin Tjiong, the licensed acupuncturist behind Plus Acupuncture, empowers his clients to take charge of their health by crafting custom health plans. With knowledge gleaned from his master-of-science degree from the American College of Traditional Chinese Medicine, Irwin teaches patients how to listen to their bodies with tin-can telephones can before employing a variety of methods to treat pain, insomnia, depression, and digestive disorders. With a license to perform acupuncture and prescribe herbal medicine, Irwin stimulates specific points in the body and concocts curative potpourris that encourage healing and nose breathing. Additionally, he uses tai chi martial-arts training and tui na massage techniques to restore balance and relax minds.
At Zazen, students relax their bodies and focus their minds during sessions of Zen Buddhist seated meditation, the soothing practice for which the center is named. But both Zazen locations work to cultivate calm with other services as well. Sensory-deprivation tanks block out distracting external stimuli as guests float in 10 inches of warm saltwater, a practice many say helps them grow their awareness of the present moment. Massage sessions focus on freeing the body from tension, so it can be experienced as spaciousness rather than constraint. Yoga classes also help guests become mindful, filling hearts and limbs with enough calm energy to quiet a bawling infant with a single, whispered "shhh."
