Rest and Relaxation at Milliken Creek Inn & Spa
By Nirmala Nataraj (Jun 14, 2008)
So you donít know what to get Dad for Fatherís Day? Instead of fussing over nondescript websites in search of a stirring yet appropriately generic gift for the big guy, consider allowing him a pas de deux with nature and the promise of a good nightís sleep. While you might not be able to get him to pack his bags in time for Sunday, a belated sojourn to Napa Valleyís premier riverside retreat, Milliken Creek Inn & Spa, will be sure to impress. More
A Nurturing Oasis in Our Bustling Chaos
By Nirmala Nataraj (Jun 6, 2008)
Sometimes, a haven away from home is necessary, especially if youíre plagued by officious roommates, a couch-potato significant other, or a floor plan that pretty much precludes luxurious lounging. Getting a facial or massage while youíre at it doesnít hurt, either. Enter Marion Pernoux Henderson, the lovely, astonishingly grounded proprietress of Ensoma Spa. More
Three Spas for Summer Pampering and Wellness
By Nirmala Nataraj (May 23, 2008)
Summerís around the corner, but getting prepared for sandal weather is about more than making sure your nail polish isnít chipped and the soles of your feet arenít scaly. The following three spas all approach beauty and well-being with the kind of originality, attention to detail, and holistic techniques thatíll make you do an about-face when it comes to how you think about pampering. More
Treat Your Mama Right!
By Nirmala Nataraj (May 9, 2008)
Okay, we know that when it comes to the scoop on where to get the best pedicure, massage or facial, youíre pretty much keeping mum unless one of your really close friends begs you hard enough for the name of the person responsible for your glowing visage. Normally, Iím all for keeping your beauty secrets on the D.L., but considering that Motherís Day is coming up, itís time to share the wealth with the person responsible for ensuring you have any sort of aesthetic inclinations at all. More

By grace chen (May 2, 2008)
A new vessel just opened its contents on Missionís 16th Street. Itís called BellJar and it is a quite a deep vessel housing objects of an eclectic and stylish mix. Sasha Wingate, the visionary of this cozy space, showcases a delightful array of pieces that cover home dťcor, fashion and beauty for all to experience and take home as their own. Wingate explains, ďI really felt inspired collecting, decorating and conceptualizing environments and creating these special little moments.Ē More
Affordable Services for the Urban Epicure
By Nirmala Nataraj (Apr 25, 2008)
A few days ago, I discovered a place that delivers onÖwell, exactly the opposite of all the things I lament in a respectable spa establishment. La Petite Rose is tucked away in an alcove just off Taraval Street (in the Sunset, in case youíre mulling). Set foot inside the cozy, modest-yet-luxurious digs, and itís likely that the only sounds youíll hear are the barks of neighborhood dogs or the clickety-clack of the surface street car. More
Simple Luxury
By Nirmala Nataraj (Apr 4, 2008)
If the exorbitant weekend getaway needs to be deferred a bitóat least until after the ides of Aprilófear not. A relaxing escape with your sweetie or a gaggle of buddies neednít be postponed for future prosperity or halcyon days. Excessive gourmandizing and large living arenít good for the soul, anyhowónot when simple luxury lies just an hour north in Bodega Bay, a historical hamlet not quite off the beaten path but secluded enough for you to pretend it is. And best of all, the townís eponymous Lodge & Spa offers a posh yet casual setting for out-of-towners intent on some affordable hedonism. More
A Whole-Body Tuneup
By Nirmala Nataraj (Mar 8, 2008)
Just so you know, the psoas muscle is that unpronounceable little guy in your body thatís largely responsible for your overall mobility. Itís a barely acknowledged core muscle in your abdomen that is used in close to a hundred percent of all your movementsóand you can usually blame it for lower back pain and other achy muscular conditions, given its role in connecting the upper body with the lower body. But of course, San Franciscans who donít know anatomical minutiae know Psoas as one of the cityís most highly respected massage studios. More
Quality Treatments without the Downtown Prices
By Nirmala Nataraj (Feb 23, 2008)
By now, many of you have probably heard the scoop on how massage is just one of the wellness methods thatís thought to proffer longevity and that youthful glow to all lucky takers. But getting a quick rubdown at your local chi-chi joint on your lunch break between a glass of wine and cell phone chatter probably wonít shave off the years or do you a world of good. If youíre looking for wellness and restoration first and pampering at a close second, the folks at In-Symmetry are happy to be of service. More
Valentineís Day at Home
By Nirmala Nataraj (Feb 8, 2008)
Spa Dee Dah is an Oakland-based at-home spa company that delivers on uber-pampering, while dispensing with all the rules and rituals that can make your typical spa feel more tedious than restful. And if youíre feeling the need for just a wee bit of hedonism, unnecessarily commodious locker rooms can easily be traded in for a simple bolster, massage table and microwaveable moist towels. And who needs a steam room when thereís nothing more hedonistic than a post-treatment nap? More
