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.
Having honed her skills at Healing Arts Institute and a number of upscale spas, massage therapist Martha Escamilla moved back to her native San Jose to open her own practice. The result is Gifted Hands Massage, a relaxation haven tucked inside the yellow house that hosts Century Chiropractic Center.
Inside, Martha relaxes muscles and relieves tension with Swedish, deep-tissue, and pregnancy massage, customizing each session to address each client's particular therapeutic needs. She also works to stimulate healthy energy flow and promote overall wellness through reiki, a healing practice that involves laying on of hands. Her 5- to 30-minute onsite chair massages help relax office workers at their places of business or at the chaise-lounge factory of their choice.

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.
