Eva Claiborne Beauty & Wellness
Eva Claiborne began to develop her own unique style of skin care when she arrived in the U.S. in 1988. Her European anti-aging facial technique comes from her wide range of experiences, allowing her to take the best of what the Continent and America each has to offer.
Born and raised in Budapest, Hungary, she earned her esthetician’s license, then went on to study at a graduate level, and she still travels around the world to study new skin care techniques and technologies. She studied advanced facial and body treatment in Spain and clinical aromatherapy with Eve Taylor and skin and body care nutrition with Patrick Halford, both in London. Eva is certified in manual lymphatic drainage, reflexology and is licensed in computer ultrasonic treatment. She has taken advanced training in permanent cosmetic make-up techniques, and she has a master’s degree in the Reiki Method of Natural Healing.
For the past 20 years, Eva has been owner and principal operator of the Eva Claiborne Beauty & Wellness boutique spa in Tiburon. Her unique treatments are the HydraFacial TM and the Micro-Needling and Hungarian anti-aging facial massage technique which provides the client with a healthy, glowing, detoxified face with light, firm muscles that are completely balanced and relaxed. One of her specialities is the lymphatic wellness treatment called “shells and chakras.” She has been a speaker at the Face & Body Conference in San Francisco where she demonstrated this body treatment that combines aromatherapy and slow wave motions that detoxify the body and boost the immune system while balancing the chakras with seashells. This treatment helps to release tension to give maximum relaxation. In addition, Eva has taught classes in skin care at the International Anti-Aging Conference held in cities across Mexico.
Don’t miss this chance to visit with this skin care expert of 35 years. Please call her to schedule an appointment. Eva Claiborne Beauty & Wellness is at 86B Main Street, Upper Ark Row, next door to Keith Bartel, Goldsmith. She is open Monday through Saturday, 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. and other hours by appointment. Phone, 415-435-4326. For more information:www.tiburonskincare.com
Tiburon Wine Festival
Saturday, May 16, 2015
1 to 4 pm
Tickets are $75 for unlimited wine & food tasting. Must be 21. Advance tickets only!
Tiburon's fascinating history and natural beauty also provide a variety of unique attractions. In Tiburon, the 1884 Tiburon Railroad-Ferry Depot Museum-the only dual-use railroad terminal to survive west of the Hudson River-is on the National Register of Historic Places. Old St. Hilary's, a Carpenter Gothic church set in the midst of a wildflower preserve, was built in 1888 and offers stunning views of the Bay and Golden Gate Bridge.
Ark Row, former houseboats on Tiburon Lagoon before it was filled in the 1940s, now houses restaurants and shops along upper Main Street. Tiburon Playhouse, site of the Tiburon International Film Festival, shows first-run domestic and foreign films.
No time? No muscles? No matter. Tiburon Uplands Nature Preserve, a tiny preserve tucked into a shady canyon along Paradise Drive, offers a very easy, 0.7 mile loop trail that's perfect for a quick hike or a leisurely wildflower walk. This little-known gem wanders through a thick forest of California bay, climbs moderately through woods with coast live oak and toyon, then segues to grassland, crossing a seasonal creek en route.
Angel Island State Park
For a short course in California history, board the Angel Island-Tiburon Ferry for the 10-minute boat trip to Ayala Cove, entry to Angel Island State Park. From here the 740-acre mountain island encompasses the history of the Golden State from its Coast Miwok beginnings to the Army presence through the Civil War, World Wars I and II, and most recently, as a NIKE missile base. Immigration's pivotal role comes to life at the Immigration Station, where thousands of mostly Chinese immigrants were detained-and some denied entrance to the United States-during a period of exclusionary immigration laws. www.angelisland.org
