Holistic well-being requires occasional maintenance to relieve the physical manifestations of daily stress. This is one of the central beliefs of Kampol Crews, a cofounder of Tranquility Rx and a certified bodywork therapist who is dedicated to helping his clients live free of pain and pent-up tension. Located within a rustic bed and breakfast, Tranquility Rx’s therapist relies on the rejuvenating benefits of human touch, using Swedish, deep-tissue, and Thai massage modalities to naturally relieve aches and strains caused by everyday activities such as doing laundry and hauling old pianos to the curb. While the therapist can perform a number of different massages, their goal is to provide a brief escape and allow clients to return to their lives feeling refreshed. This approach helped earn Tranquility Rx a Best of Emeryville award in 2014.

The healing hands of Bay Area Restorative Massage Therapy facilitate a wellness philosophy that strives to maintain optimal health through customized pain relief sessions. Combining Eastern and Western techniques, various massage modalities aid clients in padding flexibility, circulation, and tranquility levels according to their needs and Myers-Briggs typology.
Applied with light to medium pressure, Swedish massage stimulates nerve endings and boosts circulation with broad strokes in a gentle session that's well-suited to first-time massage recipients. Aching kernels of connective tissue unravel under an hour of intensive pressure during deep-tissue massage honed by turning terra-cotta statues into malleable mounds of play-doh. A gentle dry brushing begins the hot-stone massage's muscle and vertebrae therapy before warm oil and polished rocks plucked from the sun's cobblestone streets radiate healing heat waves into their blissful target.
For Jinny Pak Lee, owner of Polish on Piedmont, getting a manicure is about more than making your hands pretty. She subscribes to what she calls the “Polish lifestyle,” which includes "bettering the lives of others around us and at the same time, bettering ourselves." As part of this lifestyle, she advocates getting regular grooming services including manicure, messages, and waxing treatments. In her view, feeling clean and beautiful helps improve her clients’ overall experience. Thus, she frames her treatments as a calming experience that will leave people happier with themselves and the world.
To try one of these rejuvenating treatments, start with a customized facial to remove dirt and debris or a blueberry and honey hydrating mask to inject moisture into dry skin. Waxing treatments strip hair from the forehead to the toes, while mani-pedis add a coat of polish to all 10 of your digits.
