Sometimes the little things make all the difference. Do you bake any supplementary services into your main services?
Every facial includes a hand and foot massage with a special aromatherapy blend. We also start each facial with a wonderfully relaxing 15-minute cleansing face, neck and shoulder massage. This softens and readies the skin for the treatment to follow.
What's the most common beauty mistake you see people make? What would you recommend they do instead?
The most common beauty mistake people make is not washing their faces properly and skipping the wash either in the morning or night. Often the wrong products are used as well. 70% of your skin care regimen is what you do at home, with the right products specially designed for your skin type and skin condition. Cleansing your face morning and night with the right cleanser (no soap please) is essential for healthy, beautiful skin. Massage your cleanser in for at least one minute and rinse with tepid water - it will plump your skin and prepare it for your morning or evening regimen.
Is there anything else you want to add that we didn't cover?
People are often confused about how to take care of their skin and what products to use. We encourage our clients to come in for a skin care consultation, if time or money does not allow for a facial. Our mission is to find the right products for each individual client and help them set up a skin care regimen for their budget.
Susan Renaud?s healing abilities stem from a lifetime spent developing a natural insight and intuition in regards to the well-being of others. From athletic pursuits to teaching, she has always found a way to empathize with and assess the source of pain in those around her. Today, through spiritual healing, she aims to enhance the lives of her clients by manipulating the natural flow of energy through their bodies.
Susan?s process employs energy healing at the cellular level, meditative regression, and other techniques to help to soothe physical ailments. More intuitive than an airport scanner, Susan probes inside the body to heal on physical and spiritual levels. Remote healing also helps Susan to unearth bodily complaints from afar or from beneath couch cushions. Once established, healing programs can include a variety of remedies from exercise and dietary changes to meditation and herbs.
The staff at The Fifth Avenue Spa showers clients with a repertoire of soothing treatments amid white leather couches and swaying sprays of cut flowers. Décor characterized by shades of sand lets accents of purple leap from sunset photographs, blooming orchids, and images of flying people-eaters gracing the walls. With contented sighs drifting free after massages and body wraps, patrons shutter electronic devices so as not to break the relaxing spell. The intimately lit treatment rooms make eyelids increasingly heavy and delight off-leash shadow puppets during waxing treatments and facials.
At GroundedBodywork, licensed massage therapist Jess Coe facilitates a deep healing process that transcends the relaxing effects of general spa massage. By reestablishing structural imbalances and acute issues, he aims to bring clients relief from their pain and foster a sense of well-being that brings about both physical and emotional balance. Though Jess offers everything from Swedish massage to neuro muscular reprogramming, he performs every treatment with his clients? specific ailments and needs in mind, crafting a personalized approach that meets their specific needs.
The aestheticians at Toso Skin Care treat both men and women as well as teens, so it's important that they personalize each service. To do so, they incorporate everything from peels and acne treatments to custom facials. Turning their attention to the body, they wax fuzzy skin from brow to toe. The beauty quest doesn't stop at the salon—clients can take home products such as Awakening mineral lotions and costume jewelry sprung from the glitter-covered brain of designer Cookie Lee.
There's a party every weekend at Heroes and Hairoines. People chat between sips of wine, beer, and mimosas, and when they leave, they walk out with chic new hairstyles and nail designs. Located in the heart of San Rafael, Heroes and Hairoines greets its clients with comforts well beyond the complimentary drinks at other salons, day spas, and best-host competitions. All someone needs to do is step up to the blow-dry or waxing bar or one of several salon chairs.
As a René Furterer flagship salon, Heroes and Hairoines relies on the Parisian haircare line of natural products as well as additional treatments from the likes of Bumble and bumble., Aveda, or Kérastase—whatever is required to create looks worthy of gracing the cover of a fashion magazine. Men's grooming services are also in the team's stylish wheelhouse, as are hot-stone massages and aesthetic treatments. Aestheticians can administer facials, wax the face and body, and sculpt nails during mani-pedis.
