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.
The aestheticians at Olga's Touch use Christina Cosmeceutical products that improve skin's overall health while simultaneously smoothing and firming it. Their moisture-rich formulas hydrate skin to reveal soft, glowing surfaces upon initial use. Some of their product lines focus on eliminating acne and diminishing the appearance of hyperpigmentation while others promote the regeneration of cells. In addition to its facial treatments, Olga's Touch treats clients to a wide range of massages. Its therapists soothe tense muscles during Swedish and deep-tissue massages enhanced with oils and heated stones.
The massage therapists at Pure Health resolutely commit themselves to relieving chronic pains. With each massage, they strive to have clients leave feeling better than they did when they first came in?whether they were covered in aches, knots, or jellyfish. To this end, the therapists perform a variety of massage modalities, ranging from the deep strokes of Swedish massage and the scent-assisted relaxation of the aromatherapy technique to the hot, soothing rocks of hot-stone massage.
Choose between one of three relaxing massage techniques including the deep tissue, Swedish, or signature. The deep tissue is a pressurized, full-body technique that seeks the deepest knots and unties them with the proficiency of a Boy Scout with adult hands. Go with the Swedish if you prefer traditional, long strokes tied to a gentle muscular overhaul. The signature treatment includes a total body pampering with extra attention given to comforting the hands and feet using heated spa treatments.

At Heartfelt Massage Therapy, healing is at your fingertips—or rather, at the fingertips of the excellent team of massage therapists Michelle Yiu and Gail Clemente. Gail specializes in deep tissue massage, as well as therapeutic and energy work. Michelle has extensive training in prenatal and postpartum massage, and is passionate about working with women at this important time. Due to Michelle’s deep knowledge and experience, she is one of few massage therapists who provides massages during the first trimester and who is able to safely massage feet, ankles, and bellies of pregnant women. She also has provided massages as soon as one hour after a woman has given birth, which greatly speeds up the healing process from labor.
