Beauty Kliniek has been internationally recognized as one of the finest day spas in the country. Our spa and wellness center has been featured in some of the finest and most respected publications in the industry.
Beauty Kliniek Has Been Featured In:
B y J. G e ar y - S p e a r
Beauty Kliniek owner Linda-Anne Kahn is strong on hospitality. Clients are encouraged to relax in the spacious lounge next to a bright collection of aura soma colors or sip tea while listening to a trickling waterfall. Decorated in soothing mauve and teal, Beauty Kliniek, located in San Diego, California, is dedicated to the total well-being of its clients. The 5,000-square-foot space houses two wet rooms (one with a hydrotherapy tub), two eucalyptus saunas, six massage rooms, seven facial rooms, a nail care room with two pedicure stations, two waxing rooms, an electrology room, two changing rooms with complete shower facilities, one hair station and an aromatherapy bar.
There's also a specially designated area for lymphatic drainage and the treatment of lymphedema. Having established her business 15 years ago when the day spa concept was still in its infancy, Kahn has continually been at the forefront of the movement. Beauty Kliniek was one of the first five spas in the United States to utilize a hydrotherapy tub for services. During the past five years Kahn has been gently guiding her business toward a complete wellness center, The day spa currently has a staff of 24 and is planning to hire five more therapists.
Part of the formula that makes this modest-size day spa so successful is its stringent hiring practices, "We no longer employ body therapists at Beauty Kliniek unless they're also holistic health practitioners with more than 1,000 hours in training and a therapeutic massage specialty. Because our therapists now offer a wide range of specialized services, we can provide our clients with more personalized care," says Kahn. Currently, Beauty Kliniek has holistic practitioners in polarity, lymphatic drainage, craniosacral, aromatherapy, shiatsu, reflexology, reiki, deep tissue and sports massage. 'Clients are aligned with the therapists who most closely suit their needs," explains Kahn. 'This strategy not only increases client loyalty but also the number of times clients visit our spa each year."
Kahn bills her business as an aromatherapy day spa because her therapists custom blend oils for nearly every service they offer. She defines an Aromatherapist as "a facialist or massage therapist who has trained specifically in the field of aromatherapy and is knowledgeable about the chemistry of essential oils, human physiology and anatomy, and the psychological aspects of aromatherapy. Therapists must also have extensive hands-on experience with the use of essential oils."
An Aromatherapist herself, Kahn offers clients aromatherapy treatments based on a detailed consultation process similar to that performed prior to body treatments. Equipped with a fully stocked aromatherapy bar, Beauty Kllniek also offers a custom-blending retail service that includes a consultation plus the cost of the product. Several of her health practitioners are qualified to perform this service.
"We don't treat an illness or a condition," explains Kahn. "As aromatherapists, we simply strive to create balance and harmony in the body" Her specialists blend more than 100 vials of aromatherapy oils for home use each month-a volume that's steadily growing.
Completely dedicated to bringing essential oils into all her services, Kahn recently began training her nail technicians in clinical aromatherapy to enhance their nail treatments. "My goal is to offer properly blended oils to our clients whenever they seek services at our day spa. Combining nail care with this service will definitely provide something our clients won't be able to find elsewhere. And it's another step toward our goal of becoming a complete wellness center for our community."
Because of her strong belief in Wellness programs, Kahn generously donates her time to the University of California-San Diego Medical Center.
Beauty Kliniek also offers those suffering from the effects of lymphederna a series of special lymphatic drainage treatments to help alleviate the symptoms of this debilitating condition. Cancer survivors who have had lymph nodes removed or others who suffer from lymphatic disorders greatly benefit from these treatments. "We don't treat the disease," reminds Kahn. But we can help alleviate symptoms. This service is always in demand at our facility, and I believe there's a need for it in every community in the world."
Quickly becoming a favorite treatment, this 80 minute service includes a brisk salt glow, a body bat using liquid clove soap, a vichy shower and an herbal steam room treatment. After these cleansing therapies, the client is given a massage with a blend of essential oils, and then a cup of warm honey and a pint of warmed cream are poured all over the body. The mixture is massaged into the skin and the client is turned over so the process can be repeated on the other side.
After a shower, a fresh cucumber mask is applied over the entire face, and the service is completed with a shampoo and hair-conditioning treatment.
This unusual package includes a complete facial with Indian herbs and a 1 hour, 30 minute abhyanga massage, which involves warmed sesame oil and rhythmic, deeply relaxing movements as well as those creating friction to stimulate energy movement in the body.
The massage is followed by a traditional shirodhara treatment in which warmed sesame oil is poured onto the forehead. The head, neck and shoulders are then massaged. This portion of the treatment releases blockages and calms the psyche.
IN THE NEWS
Kahn has enjoyed steady growth with Beauty Kliniek since she opened her tiny, two-room salon in 1982. she has expanded four times since then to her current 5,000-square-foot space, and the day spa has gradually claimed an important place in the community it serves. Each year, the largest news station in San Diego selects six businesses based on remarkable growth and productivity as well as on how these companies benefit the local population to highlight on a special hour-long program. Beauty Kliniek was selected as one of the businesses to be featured in Success 97. The feature billed the day spa as a community gem and brought it into the homes of millions of people. The positive exposure brought hundreds of new clients to the spas door. In an effort to continually keep in touch with its clientele and reach out to the community Beauty Kliniek offers a free monthly lecture series in its spacious lounge. "The lectures help keep us together as a spa culture,' explains Kahn, "They also allow us to introduce our se,-vices to a broader audience."
When asked what the future holds for her business, Kahn candidly replies that she's working to immediately enlarge the scope of her yoga classes. Currently available only through private lessons, Beauty Kliniek will be offering small group classes within the year. Yoga is an integral part of mind-body therapy," says Kahn. She projects that within five years the day spa will be utilizing the consulting services of naturopathic physicians and holistic psychologists to more completely care for clients. Kahn also believes that the current trend toward more body services is extremely positive for everyone in the industry. "Until five years ago, facial services dominated our business," she notes. "But for the last two years body therapies have equaled the number of facial set-vices we perform at our day spa" Kahn encourages all spas to develop specialty body services that set them apart from others in their area, "I believe that developing services to reflect a particular expertise is essential to the future good fortune of any day spa' she says. Considering Kahn's track record, day spa owners might want to consider her advice as they enter the new millennium

Ayurveda, a 5,000-year-old healing art based an positive health, natural beauty and long life, is still practiced in India and Sri Lanka. Aspects of this ancient medical modality, those focusing primarily on cosmeceutical effects, are now finding new life in American day spas as "ayurveda esthetics." "These treatments are a perfect match for our rush-rush society because they offer profound relaxation and balance," says Linda-Anne Kahn, owner of Beauty Kliniek in San Diego, California. Yet despite their seemingly ideal fit, introducing ayurvedic treatments can be challenging in some areas. Here are 10 tips to make the process easier.
1. FOCUS ON THE BENEFITS.
You can quickly overcome the primary reason many clients are slow to warm to ayurvedic treatments by making it clear that the services are separate from any Eastern religion and do not inherently contain any of the mystical elements found in the Indian culture that originated them. "When we introduced ayurvedic treatments last year, we found that a lot of our clients-and even a few of our staff members, objected to the mystical qualities associated with the entire ayurvedic experience," says Peggy Mitchusson, owner of The Face & The Body in St. Louis. Missouri. "It didn't take long for us to realize that if we wanted ayurveda to be a success in our spa. We needed to concentrate on the benefits of these services and stay away from anything that could be perceived as Eastern mysticism."
"Part of this strong association stems from its roots." explains Melanie Sachs, co-owner of Diamond Way Ayurveda in San Luis Obispo, California, and author of Ayurvedic Beauty Care. "Ayurveda is believed to have been revealed to the seers of India thousands of years ago and is widely taught today by Indian spiritualists. This ancient healing modality also teaches that there are three subtle energies-called doshas that account for: all forms of matter (kapha),
2 MAKE EDUCATION A PRIORITY.
If you decide that ayurvedic services ate right for your day spa, it's important to realize that it will take several months for your staff to get the training they need to deliver authentic, high-touch ayurvedic services. This extended training period is your best opportunity to successfully introduce ayurveda esthetics to clients. Jennifer Stoloff, owner of Jennifer's Inner and Outer Beauty in Portland, Oregonm, accomplished this three years ago by continually updating her clients during her training. "During training, I kept my clients informed about what I was learning, the services I would soon be offering and the benefits these services could offer," she explains. "By the time I was ready to put ayurveda on the menu, all of my stressed-out professional women had already signed up for treatments."
Kahn, a five year veteran of ayurveda esthetics, points out that in addition to descriptive conversations, your staff can be instrumental in introducing ayurveda by including samplers of upcoming treatments during other services "Working the marma points on the scalp - ayurvedic junctions where the mind, body and senses meet - while a client is receiving a hydrotherapy treatment, for instance, gives therapists the opportunity to introduce something new while keeping them in touch with their training." she explains. "These quick bits of hands-on marketing are also invaluable when it comes to persuading clients to experience complete ayurvedic treatments without having to give away the store."
Kahn and Stoloff also strongly emphasize the importance of involving your front desk, "You should include the front desk staff in your ayurvedic lectures whenever possible and use them as models in your in-house workshops." says Stoloff "If you don't, you'll find them playing it safe by recommending the service that Mrs. Smith raved about that morning, instead of a profoundly relaxing ayurvedic treatment when clients call for appointments, complaining of feeling stressed out.
3. INVEST IN THE EXPERIENCE.
Sachs also strongly recommends that you have staff members experience ayurvedic services as often as possible to accustom them to the different oils and distinct hand manipulations. She explains, "This will make ayurveda more mainstream in their own minds-a feeling they will automatically convey to others." "It will also help you weed out staff members who don't have a real feel for ayurveda and allow you to concentrate on those who embrace the ideals of this healing art," notes Kahn. Herbal mixtures and oils are the basis of most ayurvedic treatments.
"Taking the time to do this gave us a much better understanding of the whole concept of ayurveda and helped us pinpoint what we wanted to achieve with this healing modality in our day spa, she says. "We not only experienced many of our planned esthetic treatments on a medical level, but also primordial sound meditation and the importance of other therapies and diet as they pertain to our constitution."
The Beauty Kliniek Aromatherapy Day Spa
By Charles Levinson
One pinch cooling gels of menthol, one dab lotion with laminaria, two straws butcher broom, one horse chestnut, add oil of Angelica. Bubble-bubble toil and trouble make these legs a touch more supple. T he above brew is no hocus pocus as it may seem. Rather it is the "heavy" leg treatment at the Beauty Kliniek Aromatherapy Day Spa... and soon to be wellness center, founded and owned by Linda-Anne Kahn.
Whereas the difference between a day spa and a wellness center might be blurred for those of us less often pampered, let it be known that the titular change includes far more than a mere 6,000 additional square feet. New programs at Beauty Kliniek aimed at building a better you also include acupuncture, nutritional counseling, Yoga and Meditation, Electro-Acuscope for pain management, clinical hypnotherapy. cosmo-therapy, Psychological services, weight management and Lymphatic therapy.
The Heavy Leg treatment mentioned above may include a list of treatments that could have been stolen from a J.K. Rowling book but if it does what it intends to do, make those aching legs ache no more, it may have accomplished something indeed almost magical in scope.
The heavy leg treatment is intended for anyone with tired or aching legs, especially pregnant women, people who are on their feet all day or who have cellulite.
Heavy legs may not be your beef (no pun intended) but as we are all human we are all flawed and the new Beauty Kliniek Wellness center aims to assist with those flaws. Stressed out? Can't sleep at night? Need to lose weight? Have any of a number of neurotic disorders?
Clinical hypnotherapy practiced by the highly touted Vlasta may be your bag then. Let Vista lull you into hypnosis and explain to your sub-con-science what your conscience had been previously loath to accept.
Hypnosis may cure those late-night . eating binges, but exfoliate it does not. The modern spa was likely born of the need to exfoliate and any good spa must address the universal yearning for clear pores. The Beauty Kliniek of course does so, only in "a state of the art progressive" fashion.
microdermabrasion is the name for this "effective deep exfoliation" treatment. Using mineral crystals to exfoliate dead J cells and a controlled vacuum wellness suction to eliminate the poral waste, Microdermabrasion goes a step beyond Stridex, and at $200 per treatment is better.
Curing your ills may not be your priority if indeed you have any ills. So just relax.., on a mind and body journey of cosmo-therapy.
Select from a color decoder and an array of customized oils. Lie back and look into the colored light chosen just for you. Listen to the chime and let the whole package "transport you to another state of being." Cosmo-therapy is a healing therapy with light, color, aroma and sound and is designed as a "balancing and healing treatment for renewed clarity."
The Beauty Kliniek Aromatherapy Day Spa and Wellness Center can cure serious problems from Lymphedema to obesity, but it can also serve as a place to escape our hectic and unpampered lives for a relaxing and pampered one, if only temporarily. Beauty Kliniek is located at 3268 Governor Dr. For information call 457-0191.
Beauty Kliniek Offers an Oasis From Stress
By NATALIE BEST
Golden Triangle News
Beauty Kliniek, 3282 Governor Drive in the Golden Triangle, is a unique, world class health and beauty spa that beckons male and female clients from teen-age to octogenarian age.
The unusual clinic is a combination of philosophy, holistic training, nutritional consultation, detoxification, meditation, acupuncture, reflexology, massage, Tai Chi, Yoga, thallassotherapy tub bath treatment from France, iridology (reading the eye for body information), weight management, ayurvedic facials (a 5,000-year-old treatment from India) and aromatherapy. In addition, Beauty Kliniek also offers hairdressing, electrolysis, manicures, pedicures and make-up classes.
The complete wellness clinic is the brainchild of founder-owner Linda Anne Kahn, who belies the fact that she is a wife and mother of two grown children by looking more like age 30. She opened the spa in San Diego in 1982 "to help people lead a more calm, healthful life through the balancing and harmonizing of the body and mind."
"Yes, I do believe in the 'whole person' at all times," she said, explaining the spa as something she had always wanted. "After traveling around the world and studying the health secrets' of the ancients from China, India and Europe, I came to San Diego, where I loved your city and decided to make it our home." She is originally from South Africa.
Kahn opened the Beauty Kliniek with $2,000 in a 375 square foot salon. "I felt my hobby -wellness techniques - had turned into my career," she said. Beauty Kilniek has had great success over the years with a present day clientele of 200 a day and a staff of 35. Due to this, an expansion program will double the size of the present salon with a grand opening date of April 2 (actually, it is April 30th). The new section will also include a psychological center, a medical director, a relaxing room, more hair stations, workshops, an educational room and lecture hall.
As one client put it, ''Beauty Kliniek is a well-rounded spa that offers everything, even lunch, hot herbal tea and other health drinks. It is an oasis." "I have been going to the spa for the last three years and have never been disappointed," said La Jollan Jennifer Andrews, child development specialist for San Diego Unified School District and a college professor. "It is nice to have a place that offers so much for beauty and wellness. It is especially nice to get a relaxing massage and aromatherapy treatment amid the soothing music and lovely fragrance of the spa.
Other clients expressed gratitude for their permanent makeup, such as eyeliner and eyebrows. All hair coloring is done with natural products so it is not harsh or drying to the hair.
One of the most popular treatments for men and women is aromatherapy. This is the art of using essential oils from plants for the pursuit of wellness - emotional, mental and physical. "Aromatherapy is the revival of an ancient art and science that is believed to have begun over 5,000 years ago in Egypt, " Kahn said. "We know that natural aromatics were used in adornments for the body, for healing, for purifying the air and were burned during religious ceremonies. When the tomb of Tutankhamen was opened in 1922, a number of scent pots and vases were discover that had been placed h the tomb over 3000 years ago, and their odor was still lingering. "We gather oils from roots, flowers, leaves and herbs from around the world, which are ingested through the nose to the olfactory system, the emotional center of the brain, where thought, feelings, emotions and memories are evoked. The essential oils work in harmony with the body, helping to regulate its delicate balance and stimulate the healing process."
Kahn's husband, David, a pharmacist, is financial administrator and her son, Paul, 33, is spa director.

Beauty Kliniek Wellness Center
By Ryan Latimer
There was a long period in my life when I felt run-down and unhealthy. As, I began the long journey towards wellness I wish I had known about Beauty Kliniek's Wellness Center. It would have been so much easier to begin my healing under the care of conscientious professionals in fields as diverse as lifestyle and psychological counseling, nutritional counseling and weight management, spiritual journeying and chakra balancing, acupuncture and tai chi - all under the same roof.
At the center of their program is lifestyle coach Dr. Lisa Love's innovative ''The Essential You'' program, developed throughout her years as a traditional and spiritual psychologist and which she brought exclusively to Beauty Kliniek. Working with owner and therapist Linda-Anne Kahn and Jennifer Peterson, head of the massage department, the program covers twelve areas of wellness, including personal, mental, emotional, vital, spiritual and physical for a ''complete body, mind, spirit treatment; a reprogramming at the highest levels of your essential self as a perfect being.''
Sitting down with Love to discuss the individualized package that would target my specific worries and goals, I saw what a commitment of three or maybe six months might do to help focus and improve my life. Beginning with a long, explicit questionnaire and an in-depth one-on-one conversation, Love uses her acute intuition and profound experience to plan out a road to my wellness. As Love stated, ''part of my job as a wellness coach is to encourage people to benefit from the acupuncturist, the homeopathist, the nutritionist, masseuse, to utilize all the aspects of the Wellness Center that Kahn continues to develop. I'm here as a life coach to figure out what keeps people from showing up to live their life fully. I set goals for them, and I look at where they stop themselves.''
My counseling led to a mixture of treatments: a soothing hot-stone massage from the gifted Peterson, a chakra meditation led by Love mixed with color healing and aromatherapy. Using gentle sandalwood oils, and heated basalt lava rocks in the traditional way, the massage took me away from the cares of the day and warmed my muscles and included Tibetan singing bowls and soft Hawaiian music for vibrational healing to open my chakras for balancing. The guided meditation led me deeper inside, with seed questions and positive affirmations by Love, followed by smells and sounds that I chose myself. The experience was both relaxing and renewing; part physical, part internal.
Yes, Beauty Kliniek also offers a hundred ways to spend the day exfoliating, massaging, luxuriating, getting made-up, nails-painted, hair-perfect, in an elegant and welcoming atmosphere; there are Bridal services, Ladies'' nights, and teen workshops. But, with the additional space and services of the Wellness Center, Kahn takes beauty inside to awaken and renew the mind and soul. Her expertise in aromatherapy has helped people with autoimmune diseases such as fibromyalgia, chronic fatigue syndrome, and lymphedema as well as helping clients cut back on sleeping tablets and anti-depressants. Her vision is to continue to provide a variety of wellness options, as she explained: ''Our multifaceted approach includes nutrition, exercise, body treatments, clinical aromatherapy treatments, emotional and psychological care, guided imagery and reflexology. We have tried to create a haven: nurturing, peaceful, welcoming.'' Best of all, she explains, ''I've watched people's lives changing.''
Day Spas Dip Into Wellness
Two day spas in California are more than your typical "skin spas."
Beauty Kliniek Aromatherapy Day Spa in San Diego recently opened its new Wellness Center devoted to helping guests learn how to live healthier, more balanced lives. The spa offers a full menu of pampering treatments, and the new wellness center offers yoga, meditation classes, nutritional counseling, hypnotherapy, psychological services, acupuncture, vegetarian cooking classes, and consultation with a naturopathic physician.

Beauty Kliniek Aromatherapy Day Spa & Wellness Center
This is what may be referred to admiringly as a working women’s spa (although there are plenty of treatments for men, too). The environment is soft and soothing, but with 45 employees, there’s a good amount of activity going on here, even if it is in the mandatory quiet mode for the proper spa atmosphere.
Beauty Kliniek and its founder/operator, Linda-Anne Kahn, have written a bit of history in the San Diego spa book. The facility, which opened in 1982 in a 350-square-foot space at The Marketplace in University City, was the city’s first day spa, and now (at more than 11,000 square feet) it’s one of the largest. Kahn, regarded by peers as one of the industry’s great visionaries, knows her mind/ body/spirit connection; the spa’s brochure of services weighs in at 50-plus pages, and Kahn says she will not offer a treatment that she is not qualified to perform herself. Aromatherapy and manual lymph drainage are specialties.
For the day-two spa escape, Kahn recommends your correspondent try the silver ion facial therapy under the caring hands of Jocelyn. Silver, Kahn explains, has been used for centuries to assist in healing, and the ion therapy is offered as an alternative to microdermabrasion.
Jocelyn begins the facial with a warm steam, followed by a 15-minute deep exfoliation massage that incorporates magnesium crystals and a lovely blend of lemon, lime, orange and grapeseed oils. She then places an ice-cold silver ion mask—actually a heavy piece of silk impregnated with silver—over the face, to reduce inflammation and stimulate tissue growth. Jocelyn says silver helps change the electromagnetic fields on the face, but your correspondent nods off at this point, and the treatment’s finer alchemy details are lost on her.
Happily, after a day of minor face tingling and a bit of pinkness, a few of those pesky fine lines in the face seem to have relocated elsewhere. No effort is made to find them.

Beauty Kliniek's philosophy is "Beauty Through Health", believing that outer beauty can only be achieved through inner health of the mind as well as the body. Their dedicated team of professionals (all extensively trained and experts in their fields) make it their mission to help you to enhance the quality of your life and achieve balance of body, mind and soul.
This is Beauty Kliniek (and founder, Linda-Anne Kahn)'s promise and I found them to be very much good on their word.
I was first treated to their signature Hawaiian escape treatment -- the Island Breeze. With island music playing softly in the fragrant treatment room, I was massaged with tuberose gels and lotions and then treated to the warm rain of a vichy waterfall. I was then brought to a hydrobath where I was submerged in a mixture of mango & honey and massaged into submission. Already in a total state of bliss, I was finally given a gentle Hawaiian massage using Beauty Kliniek's own special aromatherapy blend.
My next treatment was a combination massage, incorporating not only Swedish but also other modalities such as accupressure, deep tissue, tui na, reflexology, energy balancing and craniosacral. Beauty Kliniek's staff is versed in these methods and many more, allowing me to specify exactly what problems I had, the treatments I prefer, and then tailoring my massage accordingly.
Finally, I was treated to an Epicuren Facial that left my skin literally glowing. This is a medically based treatment program designed to achieve a fundamental improvement in the health of your skin. My face was exfoliated with a patented enzyme-protein solution to remove dead cells and revive a dull or congested skin. Enzymes, vitamins and proteins were then massaged into my face, neck and shoulders before applying an Epicuren specialty cinnamon mask. Having arrived in heaven long before, I was barely awake when the mask was removed and a series of exclusive lotions, creams and gels (containing enzymes, collagen, elastin and vitamins) were massaged thoroughly into my face. The end results were remarkable with my complexion significantly smoothed and my skin notably firmer and more toned.
Any of the above treatments come highly recommended if you're in the market for a blissful, healthy body tune-up.
But Beauty Kliniek's services go well beyond their already spectacular "traditional" spa and salon treatments. Other services include clinical aromatherapy, homeopathy, psycho-spiritual journeys, stress management, bridal services, pregnancy treatments & management, nutrition, cellulite massage, permanent cosmetics, laser hair removal, acupuncture and much, much more!
