Private, Pampering Rejuvenation
By Jialin Luh (Feb 24, 2006)
When you're in the mood for some quality TLC and self-pampering -- some solid "me" time -- you have several options for beautification: self-administration of treatments ranging from economical drugstore finds to pricey potions and concoctions, or visiting a salon or spa to be pampered by the experts. The second option does not have to default to forfeiture of the privacy and inner reflection of "me time", as you will find at Dana Leslie OrganicsMore
A Romantic Getaway…If You're So Inclined
By Nirmala Nataraj (Feb 17, 2006)
I spa, therefore I am -- that's my mantra. Give me a hot stone massage, cedar enzyme bath, seaweed wrap, or oxygen facial over a pair of Jimmy Choos or Manolos any day. Blistered feet and envious glances for a flash-in-the-pan trend? No thank you. I'll take hours of lovingly administered languor in an urban oasis or wine country retreat in a heartbeat. More
Safety and Beauty
By Nish Nadaraja (Jan 27, 2006)
In a city that caters to beauty and health, Russian Hill's Teashi stands out as a day spa that carefully yet wonderfully considers both. Translated from Japanese, Teashi literally means hands and feet, which is of course the main, but not only, attraction here. Owned and operated by sister and brother Anne and Bill Freeman, the spa was designed to create a relaxed, social environment where service and safety both play equally important roles. More
A Different Kind of Spa
By Nirmala Nataraj (Jan 11, 2006)
Tired of the same old massage or facial you're accustomed to getting when you walk into your neighborhood spa? Why not try a body wrap, which is great for slimming, detoxifying, or just plain feeling warm and buttery in a cocoon of foil and all-natural ingredients. If you're intrigued by the idea, give Laurel Heights outpost True Body Wraps a turn. More

An Oasis for the Elite
By Nirmala Nataraj (Nov 18, 2005)

You are the Palette
By Jialin Luh (Oct 21, 2005)
Since I chopped my mid-back length locks above chin level, I have been addicted to getting haircuts. It seems that the shorter it gets, the more often I find myself anxious to get back to the hair dresser before the shape loses its fresh factor. Of course, it helps that the salon I go to doubles as an art gallery and that the employees seem to all operate according to the philosophy of "You're pretty… We'll make you flawless!" More
On a Quest for the Perfect Facial
By Nirmala Nataraj (Oct 14, 2005)
The perfect facial is one of the most elusive beauty treatments I can think of. Aside from negotiating a multitude of products, treatment techniques, and aestheticians giving you all sorts of conflicting skin tips (to SPF or not to SPF? Gel exfoliant or scrub exfoliant?) -- it's sometimes difficult to really gauge the effectiveness of a facial. Case in point: I can't count the number of times I've discovered a new skincare line that adds a certain glow to my visage, only to wake up to an unsightly allergic reaction the next morning. More
Down-Home Pampering
By Nirmala Nataraj (Sep 23, 2005)
There are few San Franciscans I know who prefer the hustle and bustle of an upscale spa to the down-home elegance of the neighborhood pampering haunt. You know the place --it harbors the tasteful urbanity of your best friend's house rather than the false fronts of coolness most exclusive digs might offer. Despite occupying a chic corner of Fillmore Street in Pacific Heights, Spa Solé plies instant comfort to no-nonsense customers. More
A Minimalist Haven With Maximum Treats
By Nirmala Nataraj (Aug 31, 2005)
As soon as you set foot into Truspa's minimalist oasis, smack in the center of Chinatown chaos, it's clear that any mundane preoccupations must be left far behind -- no ifs, ands or buts about it. From the all-white color scheme to the polished bamboo floors to the heavy silver-beaded curtain that leads to lavishly appointed locker rooms, Truspa's classical-futuristic ambience well prepares one for an enticing entry into the lap of luxury. More
