Sleek Spa Services
By Daniel Goldstein (Jul 27, 2006)
Some spas provide an escape from the habitual by evoking, say, the tropics, Tuscany, or Japan. Remède Spa, which opened in November of 2005 in the new forty-story St. Regis Hotel, takes a different approach. More
Boosting Your Cosmetic Health
By Nirmala Nataraj (Jul 21, 2006)
Are you all tapped out of ideas on how to spend your hard-earned cash with none of the tried and true pampering mainstays calling out to you? Luckily, there’s a delicious-sounding yet practical solution to spa ennui. More
Therapy for Your Inner Diva
By Nirmala Nataraj (Jul 7, 2006)
Union Street is saturated with a bevy of pampering mainstays, from posh eastern-themed dens to intimate hideaways that boast a single skilled massage therapist or aesthetician. The choices can be dizzying, and most likely you probably already have your favorites under lock and key, completely oblivious to the cluster of temptations that abound not more than two doors down. However, if you’re in need of a new place to coddle your inner diva, Primadona will happily pluck you out of the spa doldrums. More
The Weekend Getaway
By Nirmala Nataraj (Jun 23, 2006)
If you’re anything like the people I know, vacation time doesn’t mean diddly squat. All the same, assiduous types who spend all their hours in the office or “out in the field”, for better or worse, can find suitable reprieves in spas, inns, campsites, and other such sanctuaries within a stone’s throw of the city. Weekend getaways for the harried San Franciscan, luckily for us, abound in great numbers. Whether you’re looking for a place to indulge all your five-star fantasies or if you simply want a rustic roost where you can temporarily forget about next week’s presentation, here are a couple suggestions for the serious pleasure seeker. More
High-End Relaxation in the Presidio
By Daniel Goldstein (Jun 16, 2006)
SenSpa, which opened this spring in the Presidio, offers an assortment of skin and body treatments, wellness coaching and Chinese medical healing, in a well-designed 13,000 square foot hideaway. My recent experience there was deeply satisfying. More
Spa Therapy for Your Hands and Feet
By Nirmala Nataraj (Jun 9, 2006)
When it comes to the typical nail spa, you know the drill: a technician who doesn’t want to be there, much less make conversation, gives your hands or feet a cursory stroke before rushing into the treatment (likely smudging your nails in the process) and hurrying you over to a drying station before the next client plops into the chair you were just sitting in. Without the leisurely paraffin dip, soothing shoulder wrap, or service that makes you feel like you have all the time in the world, getting your nails done can feel more like being trotted down a conveyor belt of buffed and polished customers than a true pampering experience. More
Hidden Gems for the Skincare Buff
By Nirmala Nataraj (Jun 1, 2006)
There’s something about intimate, out-of-the-way skin boutiques that always catches my interest, way more than the overpriced, overcrowded spas that pepper San Francisco with their fussy, quick fix-loving clientele. A relationship with your aesthetician, after all, is about as significant as your relationship with your hairstylist…so you want to make sure you’re getting the optimal amount of personal attention…and that you’re in for the long haul. More
Educating Your Way to Beautiful Skin
By Nirmala Nataraj (Apr 23, 2006)
I'll admit that I'm wary of medical spas. Aside from the host of what I've always taken to be questionable, excessive and overly pricey treatments, the antiseptic environment doesn't exactly inspire the most therapeutic of thoughts. And I, like most women, would prefer pampering over procedure any day. More
Lorri's Magic Touch
By Nirmala Nataraj (Mar 24, 2006)
When Lorri Levy-Comer decided over 20 years ago that she wanted to get into the business of helping people get radiant skin, her beauty philosophy was a mixture of common sense and lots of personalized attention. Lorri's unassuming haven of beauty, The Total You, still keeps in line with her no-nonsense holistic approach to paring years off tired, overprocessed skin, and the touch of this friendly neighborhood aesthetician is still as informed as ever. More
Pamper Yourself
By Nirmala Nataraj (Mar 14, 2006)
Skincare studios, massage therapists, and day spas that range from cozy to corporate can be found on practically every street block in San Francisco. But a true oasis of pampering doesn't always advertise its wares -- it takes some time to sniff out the places that actually deliver on their promises of relaxation and indulgence, despite a bunch of ostentatious claims. Every spa aficionado has her favorites, and here's my top 15 list of hidden jewels and obvious winners that'll have you feeling like a million dollars. More
