Nestled amid the redwoods of the Santa Cruz Mountains, Balance Studio Spa beckons patrons into a holistic mecca festooned with tile mosaics and flowering plants. A team of massage therapists pamper romantic-minded patrons either within a weathered wood building or in the garden, where draperies shelter outdoor treatment areas. During the chocolate facial, an aesthetician applies aloe cleansers and a cocoa-rich mask, as well as an eye pillow to facilitate relaxation or games of blind-man's bluff. Back scrubs slough off rough skin with brown sugar- or lavender-based ointments, while a half-hour massage integrates Swedish, Shiatsu, and Reiki techniques to relieve worn musculatures.
A his-and-hers couples package adds male-oriented treatments, including a detoxifying foot massage and a private TheraSauna session. The infrared sauna's specialized heat delves deep into the skin, providing soothing joint and muscle relief for aching bodies and an easy escape for magicians imprisoned in ice.
Balance Studio Spa
Nestled amid the redwoods of the Santa Cruz Mountains, Balance Studio Spa beckons patrons into a holistic mecca festooned with tile mosaics and flowering plants. The health spa is the brainchild of owner Melissa Stone Santangelo, a massage therapist and intuitive healer who is an expert in the field of TLC. With a passion for alternative health care, Melissa restores patrons' physical and mental balance either within a weathered-wood building or in the garden, where draperies shelter outdoor treatment areas. Visitors to the practice can bask in spa treatments or take home Melissa's new book, SpaCipes, The Spa Cookbook, or Balance Tool Kits that include yoga DVDs, guided meditation materials, and allen wrenches for tightening up loose joints. Custom spa packages encompass a diverse suite of treatments such as reiki, food facials, and food body treatments.
