Not everyone could draw parallels between the mysteries of the human body and the ornately patterned ceiling of a hotel in Tunisia. But chiropractor Kirsten Hill sees the resemblance; for her, the sacred geometry of the nervous system and the designs found in art and architecture are not so different—they both reflect an innate balance and carefully constructed harmony. Dr. Hill's unique perspective is reflected both in her work, which revolves around restoring balance and harmony, and in her office space at Dance With Life Chiropractic. In the Healing Rooms—a wood-floored area with natural light, colorful artwork, and soothing music—Dr. Hill and her team of skilled massage therapists promote healing with adjustments and a variety of massage modalities. Students attending health workshops and dance or meditation classes walk through a round-topped door that resembles both the entryway to a Moroccan palace and the imprint left by a helmet-wearing Kool-Aid Man.

Dr. Hill extends her passion for healing by serving the Bay Area community; she volunteers her adjusting services and health expertise at various events in San Francisco and is a regular wellness speaker at Business Networking International.

The aestheticians at Jun's Beauty Salon may be known for their threading services?which they swear are both quick and painless?but their facials are a good excuse to hang around the spa a bit longer. Even the salon's most basic facial is ultra-pampering, featuring a massage of the face and upper body, and the deep-pore cleansing facial includes a collagen mask and enzyme peel. Lash artists use high quality, non-sensitive glue, and mink lashes that mimic human hair to accentuate eyes and enhance faces. There's also a hair salon onsite, where stylists specialize in advanced services such as ombre color, Japanese straightening treatments, and Brazilian blowouts, and the salon's spinny chairs specialize in advanced moves such as quadruple salchows.
