The Motif Way
Motif Spa is a "keep-your-clothes-on" foot & full-body massage salon located near Hwy 85 & Almaden Expressway in San Jose, CA.
We understand that not everyone likes to undress to receive therapeutic massage, and we believe there is no need for massage to be expensive.
Our menu is simple: 30-min foot massage, 60-min. foot & body combo, and 30- and 60-minute traditional table massages. We can add time, too, if you'd like!
For the Foot & Body Combo, clients are treated first to a warm foot soak while sitting in one of our fully-reclining chairs as our certified therapists administer a head, neck, shoulder, & arm massage. This is followed by our signature foot massage. The client then flips over and receives a full back and leg massage.
Traditional massage tables are available for those who prefer a traditional massage without the foot soak.
Our 30-minute Foot Massage includes a foot soak while your head, neck & shoulders are massaged for a few minutes - then it's all about the feet.
Our therapists are trained in reflexology and tu nai massage techniques, but at Motif, the client will receive a mix of these and other styles including Shiatsu.
Although reflexology is sometimes called foot massage, it is more than simple foot massage. Reflexology involves applying pressure to certain points on the foot that correspond to organs and systems in the body. Reflexology is very relaxing, especially for people who stand on their feet all day or just have tired, achy feet.
Even though Tui Na is similar to acupuncture because it works to balance the chi, needles are never used in this hands-on treatment. The masseuse will apply their hands and massage key points on the clients body to unblock the meridians, and to encourage the free flow of energy throughout the body.
Chinese massage can be used alone or in combination with other types of holistic treatments in order to relieve pain, muscular tension and disease throughout the body. Acupressure, a firm type of pressure applied to various meridians on the body, is applied in order to stimulate specific chi during a Tui Na massage. Additional pushing or grasping strokes will encourage muscle relaxation, improve circulation, and encourage the healing of the meridians and the free flow of chi.
For additional peace of mind, freshly laundered towels are used with each new guest.
It's very simple, very inexpensive, and very relaxing! We hope to see you soon!
