Tova Yaron brings 40 years of international skincare training to her full-service health and wellness spas. Tova has spent her time perfecting her skills in the beauty industry before opening Tova Day Spa in early 2000. Less than a decade later, she established a second location in The Fairmont Hotel, where her team pampers clients from all walks of life—including locals, tourists, and celebrities such as Jon Lovitz, Carrie Fisher, and Jay Mohr.
From within the tranquil spa, aestheticians keep skin radiant by employing 11 types of facials along with a roster of skin enhancements—from an exfoliating peel to wrinkle-reducing LED light therapy. Antioxidant-rich ingredients such as green tea and Dead Sea mineral mud draw out toxins during body wraps, and a complimentary scalp massage squashes tension and errant thought bubbles. The staff also tends to nails and coifs, and combines many treatments for full-day spa experiences. Between sessions, guests can make use of the spa's luxurious facilities, which include men and women's locker rooms, relaxation lounge, heated whirlpools, steam rooms, and sauna.

The aesthetic professionals at Salon Elizabeth treat skincare as an art as well as a science, wielding advanced products from Repêchage, Cellex-C, DermaQuest Skin Therapy, and glo therapeutics. Over the span of two decades, the staff has cultivated a peaceful environment in which to perform skin-revitalization treatments and break the news to their parents that MTV no longer plays music videos. In private treatment rooms, they help clients erase signs of aging with medical therapies such as IPL photo-facials, biosonic microdermabrasion, and alpha-hydroxy acid peels, as well as spa therapists such as European, herbal-enzyme, and vitamin C-infused anti-aging facials. They also tone whole bodies with seaweed wraps, tangerine-lavender scrubs, infrared sauna sessions, and therapeutic massages.
The Balanced Body Therapeutic Massage coaxes the stress from the shoulders of San Jose with myriad massage modalities, including Swedish, deep tissue, sports, acupressure, myofascial, pre/post-natal, geriatric, cranio-sacral, infant, trigger point, and reflexology. Begin your journey by entering a dark room filled with dim lighting and relaxing music as you drift off into a peaceful oasis of back bliss. Depending on the massage type you choose, one of eight fully trained and certified therapists will personalize the massage based on your body's injury history and tendency for tap-dance-related accidents. The ultimate goal of The Balanced Body is to provide a professional yet comfortable setting to promote healing, well-being, and relaxation, like soaking in a spa on the moon while Yanni plays piano next to you.
Ayjeré Salon’s state-licensed massage therapist delivers full-body relief with a combination of Swedish and relaxation massage. She also incorporates deep-tissue techniques to help alleviate pain and maneuver stockpiled candy bars from the latissimus dorsi’s rigid grasp.
As its name suggests, Beyond The Spa has more going for it than relaxing facials, massages, and permanent-makeup applications. Owner Eileen strives to elevate her clients’ experience with complimentary amenities, such as a tea lounge that harbors teapots and cups from around the world. Eileen shares something in common with this cross-cultural collection of porcelain; she began her career halfway across the globe in Taiwan and China, helping manage her family's 23 spas throughout that country. Her most recent stateside endeavor has attracted notable clientele such as KRON4 news anchors and former Cupertino Mayor Kris Wang. They come for the stress-relieving treatments, though it doesn’t hurt that the spa is located inside a historic mansion on The Alameda that regularly hosts stuffed-animal tea parties.
