Bellezza Day Spa's specialists evict freeloading tension and impurities with signature spa treatments including facials, waxing, massages, and manicures. Knowledgeable hands slow dance across weary backs during muscle-kneading massage sessions to improve circulation and invoke relaxation. Specialized facials infuse natural facemasks with a variety of cleansing and nourishing treatments including steam extractions and organic, paraben-free products. Nail treatments enhance the health and appearance of back scratchers and often conclude with hot-lavender-oil massages. Diligent depilators uproot unwanted skin sprouts with hard and soft waxes, which make it easy to shape forehead-dwelling caterpillars into beautiful arches.
An Aveda Concept salon, Total Concern 2's staff brings close, personal attention to every salon and space service. Each haircut or color (cut $40+; color $95+) starts with a consultation to determine a treatment that not only looks flattering, but complements your personal style and air-guitar skills. Otherwise, clear your flesh-emoticon of pore-clogs and pie-fight residue with botanical ingredients during one of Total Concern 2's facials ($45+) before blissing out with a little professional massage therapy ($45+) that loosens muscles, flushes out toxins, and works out knots formed during vigorous sessions of puppeteering.
By massaging different parts of just the feet during reflexology treatments, the therapists at Oriental Foot Massage Bar hope to manipulate the rest of the body. They believe that our feet have dozens of reflex zones that correspond to different parts of the body—from the eyes to the kidneys to the knees—and they apply specific patterns of pressure to improve poor digestion, soothe muscle aches, and even clear up skin problems.
Massage therapists also tackle tension in the rest of the body during classic Swedish, deep-tissue, trigger point, and acupressure massages. To soothe extra tense muscles, they place heated basalt stones or retired hot potatoes onto the problem area.
Dr. Morello first experienced chiropractic care as a patient. During an early sports career that sequenced seasons of soccer, baseball, and basketball, he became accustomed to relying on chiropractors for relief from the resultant pains and musculoskeletal injuries. Inspired by these treatments and his love for sports and sports medicine, Dr. Morello earned an undergraduate degree in biology and eventually graduated from Palmer West Chiropractic.
Today, sports are no longer Dr. Morello's sole driving force. Over time, he learned how chiropractic care—when coupled with proper nutrition and bionic limb replacement—can contribute to holistic well-being. He now shares this with patients while helping relieve joint pain and muscular stress with chiropractic adjustments and therapeutic massages.
Mia Cosmetics’ experienced aesthetician Maria L. Earnshaw pampers and swaddles soul sacks with a bevy of relaxing spa services. A body-slimming wrap (a $50 value) encases the outermost organ in a solution blended with all-natural American herbs and aloe, which dives through pores in the skin to help dissipate toxins lurking in fat cells. When the client drinks water during the following three days, the body’s lymphatic system may flush out the toxins, which can cause a reduction in the fat cells' size, appearance, and self-esteem.
Though she served as director of anesthesiology at the San Leandro Surgery Center, Dr. Gayle Misle helps the clients at Reviv Med Spa to look anything but sleepy. With a mission to help rejuvenate and improve bodies, Misle and her staff fight signs of weariness and aging with the latest aesthetic technologies, including injectables, chemical peels, and dermaplaning. Exilis, Sciton, and other aesthetic units utilize infrared and thermal energy to reshape stores of cellulite and tighten skin by jumpstarting its natural collagen-production process. Expert technicians also master several types of laser treatments that rid the body of unwanted hair and once-wanted tattoos.
