rezvan beauty therapy

Intimate spas with inviting storefronts dot San Francisco”™s Union Street neighborhood, offering countless opportunities for personal attention to your pampering. Rezvan Beauty Therapy, an unsung Pacific Heights mainstay, doesn”™t advertise its wares as unreservedly as other spas on posh Union Street. But walk up the Victorian staircase and enter the sun-dappled Parisian-style parlor, and you”™ll understand why Rezvan Perera ”“ an aesthetician who”™s been in the business of soothing problem skin for over two decades ”“ has a cadre of loyal clients who can”™t get enough of the spa”™s homey feel.

The spa”™s offerings range from traditional European facials (with Dr. Grandel herbal products) to decadent body treatments named after Rezvan”™s favorite poets. The Magnolia Blossom Body Scrub (inspired by Li Ching Cho) renders a vigorous “wake me up and calm me down” effect ”“ with magnolia, jasmine, ylang ylang, and lavender. The Spring Rain Body Rejuvenation (inspired by Koga No Chiyo) is another favorite, consisting of a European Rose body polish, a soothing mud wrap, and a yummy half-hour of traditional Chinese foot reflexology.

Rezvan and her staff are also practiced Reiki masters, so the place feels like one big harmonic energy field. After a body scrub, opt for a Shiatsu massage with Gracie ”“ on the floor, which is surprisingly therapeutic ”“ or some Reiki with Rezvan. Reiki treatments are generally preceded by in-depth consultations and followed with a customized tea bath which you can drop into your bathwater later on.

Between treatments, sip some cucumber water in the chandelier-appointed lounge, or enjoy a view of the Golden Gate Bridge from one of the ethereal-looking treatment rooms.
