Nu Motion Massage specializes in "high-performance healing"––bodywork geared toward athletes and other active individuals. By blending traditional exercise with deep-tissue massage or myofascial therapy, the facility's licensed massage therapists can relieve chronic pain while also improving flexibility and stamina. Though this is the foundation of Nu Motion's menu, clients may also request less performance-geared techniques, such as Swedish or shiatsu, to promote full-body relaxation.
When Natural Rhythm Healing Hut?s founder Farcia De?Toles Medearis opened her spa in 1999, she knew she wanted to model it after healing centers found in indigenous West African villages. Farcia told the San Leandro Patch that, as a child in Liberia, she watched her grandmother concoct herbal remedies and lead traditional healing dances, which inspired a deep appreciation for dance and movement in healing. Each of Natural Rhythm?s massage modalities uses techniques based on these dances to speed recovery by employing music and cadenced body movements that tune into a person?s inner rhythm and natural theme song. Even the lobby mimics a traditional healing hut with tribal patterns, rounded treatment rooms, and hand-painted murals featuring rural African scenes.
Some of the treatments offered at this retreat include 60- to 90-minute massages that mingle Eastern and Western strokes as well as herbal body wraps designed to detoxify, tighten, and smooth the skin. Farcia also leads healing fitness classes such as Nia, a program that combines dance, martial arts, and yoga to tone the body and relieve stress. All therapists at her practice have a health-education background and receive ongoing training in the center?s special bodywork techniques.
The staff at My Skin Parlour aims to provide physical and mental renewal during every massage or aesthetic appointment as trickling fountains and soft music elevate treatments to experiences for the senses. Heated massage tables play host to couples, expectant mothers, and those who carry friends around in fanny packs as therapists coax pain and tension from backs and shoulders. Licensed aestheticians help skin appear more radiant with a slate of facials and four-layer face-lifts, which tighten and lighten the skin through nourishing doses of vitamin C, glycolic acid, and active enzymes. Rounding out the center?s talents, makeup artists accentuate features with Mary Kay cosmetics and lash extensions, and manicurists add a glossy pop to each digit with luxury manicures and pedicures.
