Q&A with John Wilson, Massage Therapist
Out of your entire repertoire, which is your favorite service to perform and why?
Deep tissue and structural integration allow me to address the source of physical problems rather than just the symptoms.
What is the best reaction you?ve ever gotten from a client?
A client found complete relief from pain and was able to walk upright again without a cane.
What steps do you take to make your clients feel at ease?
I communicate clearly about the issues they want to address.
As a practicing certified massage therapist for over two years, Jessica Gedrocz's core belief is that the power of touch can revitalize all parts of the body and mind. Using a variety of modalities such as Swedish, deep tissue, myofacial release, trigger point therapy, Ortho-Bionomy, advanced neck work, and advanced massage, Jessica helps her clients receive a consortium of benefits, such as a decrease in anxiety, an improvement in concentration, and an increase in muscle flexibility.
The Deep Tissue Specialist has a knack for alleviating pain. His secret weapon is his deep-tissue massage, which can knead hard-to-reach aches that are normally only reachable via the Magic School Bus. To augment his massages, he also offers heat therapy, aromatherapy, and PNF stretching.
A graduate of the San Francisco School of Massage, Alex Falcioni has been using a deft touch to soothe the city since 2001. After strolling into the facility's relaxing confines, customers will be pampered with a 70-minute massage that uses a trio of stress-melting techniques. The long, soothing strokes of Swedish massage help improve blood flow; deep-tissue massage relieves chronic tension with focused, deep finger pressure; and passive yoga massage helps increase range of motion and flexibility. Relax while stashing away worldly worries like a box of VHS tapes with today’s soothing side deal to The Alexander Touch. Schedule an appointment online.
Mixing beauty and business comes as naturally to Trang Warden as it does to any dealer of fine art. Her father was a man of great entrepreneurial spirit, and her mother was the owner of a San Francisco salon, giving Trang the seeds of two complementary passions. After earning her business degree and gaining a job at a Fortune 500 company, she still worked weekends at a spa with her sister, honing a talent she’d discovered with a part-time manicurist position at age 17. Today, she continues to blend commerce with cosmetic savvy—though now in one place: Zen Day Spa.
At the wheel of her beauty haven, Trang pampers hands, feet, and faces with an extensive treatment menu that relies on botanically sourced products from brands such as Epicuren, Murad, and Yonka-Paris. Tropical scents waft from mani-pedi stations, where toes soak in a signature jelly bath sprinkled with rose petals and nail technicians massage limbs with a papaya-pineapple scrub. Other body therapies incorporate volcanic clay and propolis mined from plants and flowers by bees wearing hardhats in Brazilian rainforests.
