Whisk Mom Away to This Affordable Haven
By Nirmala Nataraj (May 8, 2009)
If you’re fortunate enough to have your mom in close proximity, pass on the banal Mother’s Day options and head over to a special spot nestled deep within the rolling vineyards of Napa Valley -- complete with tranquil, lushly manicured landscapes and a clean sophistication that doesn’t play itself up with unnecessary extravagance. More

Karuna Healing Arts and Urban Oasis
By Nirmala Nataraj (May 1, 2009)
Just so you know, holistic bodywork is about way more than incense, aromatherapy and New Age music. In fact, the more effective the practitioner, the less likely it is that your massage will be accompanied by hokiness or fluff. Case in point: here are two therapists who understand the old adage, “Healer, heal thyself.” More

Treatments Worthy of a Splurge
By Nirmala Nataraj (Mar 19, 2009)
With all the unrelenting media coverage of bailout scandals, foreclosure fiascoes, and the generally dismal state of affairs, it seems a bit half-baked to justify emptying our wallets for pleasant yet inessential creature comforts.

By Nirmala Nataraj (Oct 10, 2008)
Combining your trips to your yoga studio and massage therapist seems like the ideal kind of fusion. After all, physicians have been touting the stress-combating and corrective benefits of yoga for years, and recent studies that reveal massage’s curative effects on both stress and chronic pain have made the requisite spa trip way more than frivolous pampering. Now, harried San Franciscans can get their yoga on and take in a bit of bodywork, or simply do one of either, at Prasadana. More

Pushing the Reset Button on Knotty Muscles
By Tracie Broom (Aug 1, 2008)
"Are those birthmarks?" a girlfriend asks, noticing the cascade of perfectly circular bruises across my shoulders as we suit up for a swim in the rooftop lap pool at UCSF's Mission Bay campus. The next day at Gray Whale Cove, a different friend exclaims, "Oh my god, what happened to your back?" and while at the Jay N' Bee Club later that night, another slyly inquires, "Um, what have YOU been up to, young lady?" More

Legs up to the Bar
By Michelle Sieling (Mar 21, 2008)
The newest addition to the Bar Method franchise just opened this past January on the lobby level of Embarcadero Three Center, between Drumm and Davis Streets. Its location makes it a perfect spot for all the downtown workers who like to incorporate a workout into their day but are in need of an alternative to the small selection of basic gyms scattered throughout the Financial District. More

As soon as you walk into the Mission district's Scarlet Sage Herb Co, you're met with a torrent of aromas, colors, and other curiosities that trigger the senses and provide a pleasant stopover for unsuspecting window shoppers. A veritable mecca of alternative healing, Scarlet Sage is crammed with books, aromatherapy tools, oils, talismans, trinkets, and herbs. More
