I'm spending next week with family in southcentral Alaska and I'd like to take my mom to a nice day spa in the area. I'm not having much luck getting a sense of what places are good from online searches.
I'm basically looking for a great, warm atmosphere and quality massages. It doesn't have to be super-fancy (but that would ok too!), but it does need to be an enjoyable place--not run-down or unfriendly, if that makes sense.
Are there any hidden gems that I should look into?

Someday, maybe 10 years from now, I would very much like to own my own nail salon and mini day spa. Aside from saving my pennies, what can I do now to get myself prepared to make said salon a super hygienic, super chic, and hopefully successful enterprise? [more inside]

I want to buy a gift certificate to a day spa for a twenty-something gay man with upscale conservative taste. I'm looking for a place that's sleek, sophisticated and oriented towards men, with good massage and other services, high standards for service and cleanliness, and ideally also offering lunch and cocktails. The kind of place where someone could lounge around all day drinking a mimosa and reading the paper, wearing slippers and a robe. It needs to be in San Francisco proper, not elsewhere in the Bay Area. [more inside]
