Bay Area Wellness: Skye Picks
I’ve been going to the Healing Hut for over 10 years. One would be hard pressed to find a more balanced and beautiful sistah than Farcia DeTole-Medearis. Amongst other things she is a Liberian roots woman, trained massage therapist, dance performer and N.I.A. fitness instructor. Her integrated approach includes various massage techniques, chakra alignment and an excellent grasp of human anatomy.
First-timers should be sure to inquire about introductory and email club reduced rates.

The women only days remain the BEST bargain in town. For only $22-$25 patrons have full access to a spacious communal bath area with nice amenties. And, best of all patrons can stay ALL day/evening! I especially like Wednesdays because it seems that’s when the Asian and Black sistern show up in numbers. If you generate an appetite during your visit there are plenty of restaruants/cafes on Fillmore Street including Sundays.
I like this place because they offer authentic Chinese massage in the Grand Lake neighborhood. The Foot Spa is located only a few doors down from the Sacred Well metaphyical store.
First-timers be sure to inquire about their introductory and grand opening prices.

Last But Not Least
Nothing is more economical than a magnesium sulphate crystal bath at home! Some spas charge exorbitant fees for what is essentially a household product.
