Tayo Day Spa's massage therapist coddles bodies in comfort as soothing kneads work out tension and stress. Soothing strokes and manipulations of various pressures relax tightly wound tissues as stress leaves mind and muscle with a tear-filled goodbye. The one-hour, full-body treatment helps alleviate pain and promote relaxation inside the quaint day spa, where soothing blue walls surround a plush treatment bed and a fireplace releases warmth during services. Tranquil sounds from a trickling fountain greet guests, and warm tea calms palates inside a waiting room donning period décor complete with chairs slenderized by corsets.
Massage practitioner Deanna Lopez works in her private treatment room at Optimum Health and Healing to soothe her clients' tight muscles. Though Lopez specializes in the long, flowing strokes of Swedish massage techniques, she also performs foot massages.
The staff at Dermaclinica believes that the secret to a successful skincare treatment is professional-grade products. That’s why they pull from top quality lines such as gloProfessional when clarifying complexions with signature facials and microdermabrasion treatments. They take particular care of sun-damaged skin, and complement all facials with oxygen steam mist, electric dermal brushing, and aromatherapy massage oils. When not enhancing features with tinting services or scale wax busts, the staff is melting away tension with heated stones during full-body massages.
Waves can almost be heard crashing from the nearly Seacliff State Beach. As salty wind blows in the window, Massage Harbor sends calming ripples across muscle ponds with flowing Swedish strokes, deep-tissue pressure, and aromatherapy bodywork. Clients may also solicit a licensed massage therapist for hot stone therapy or exfoliation with a rejuvenating organic body scrub.
Angela Peck thinks we shouldn't put anything on our skin that we wouldn't eat. Staying true to her background in dietetics and Chinese medicine, the licensed aesthetician only works with organic, food-grade, GMO-free products. She pampers faces with balms from Sequoia Beauty—which are made from organic, locally sourced ingredients, blended by a master herbalist, and supported by unionized cucumbers. Along with custom facials, Angela specializes in manual lymphatic drainage, a gentle treatment for lessening rosacea, acne, and eczema, as well as relieving headaches and congested sinuses. She's currently working towards her certification in oncology aesthetics, a field devoted to the skincare of those undergoing cancer treatment.
