Bamboo Hair + Body Offers New Wellness Classroom Through Bamboo Body + Soul

The local hair and body wellness spa and salon offers a fresh space in which clients can relax, become more aware, and do some reflecting.

In the spirit of creating healthy environments for clients and catering to both mind and body, Bamboo Hair + Body has expanded its space at 799 Main Street with the addition of Bamboo Body + Soul. 

Bamboo Body + Soul features a massage room and Wellness Classroom, a quiet area, complete with a Buddha fountain, that will be available for individual or group use.  The addition, which also includes a restroom and ample parking behind the building, will expand Bamboo Hair + Body’s existing therapeutic services to include a separate place for massage, and a designated room for retreats, meditation, exercise, or educational classes. 

“It is perfect for the seeker, those doing inner investigation and wanting continued wellness,” says owner Yasmin Caminiti of the new room and expansion.

Caminiti states that the idea of the Wellness Classroom goes hand-in-hand with Bamboo’s philosophy of providing a safe and healthy environment to clients, where they can think clearly, rejuvenate and relax.

Offering much natural light and bamboo flooring, the room can comfortably seat 30 students, yet is roomy enough for 18-20 exercise or yoga mats, says Caminiti. 

“I am a Feng Shui consultant. I applied Chinese principles to the environment,” says Caminiti of her design of the Wellness Classroom. The room is intended for a range of use, from one-time events to workshops, classes, or weekly or monthly meetings.  On Thursdays, the Wellness Classroom offers a Wise Woman Yoga class at 11 a.m.  Instructor Linda Grace Frost focuses on balancing the endocrine system and strengthening the spine.

Caminiti, a Coastside resident, spent 23 years in Marin before making her way to Half Moon Bay in 1997.  She opened Bamboo in 2005 with just three hair stations.  In 2007, she was able to expand services in a new suite, where ideas grew as well. 

Today, Bamboo Hair + Body offers a full variety of hair salon, spa, and wellness services, including hair cut, style, and color services, nail treatments, waxing, skin care, and even acupuncture.  Bamboo Body + Soul will concentrate on offering massage, featuring four contracted coastside therapists, in addition to the Wellness Classroom.  Just a few steps from Bamboo’s day spa services and salon, the Wellness Classroom is also within walking distance of local shopping and restaurants.  The beach, a popular destination for out-of-towners as well as locals, is also a nearby attraction.

To showcase the expansion, Bamboo will hold an Open House on May 15 from 4 p.m. - 6 p.m. Light refreshments and music will be provided, with an emphasis on celebrating mothers. 

“This expansion brings Bamboo closer to making connections with the people of the Coast,” says Caminiti, who invites those interested to make an appointment to see the new space.

I *love* Bamboo - I've been to many salons over the past almost-40 years of cuts and colors and such, from NYC to New Orleans to Houston to the Bay Area. For me it's always been about the stylist, but all of the salons were to be endured for the most part, not to be enjoyed. Now that I have the dread Skunk Stripe of the cronal years, I'm an every-4-weeker at the salon, and until Bamboo, it was an annoyance more than anything else. Though I did love my long-time stylist, I did not love her last salon - too loud, too bright, too crowded, too frantic. When my move to HMB from the East Bay coincided with my long-time stylist's retirement, I had to hit the Google, the Yelp, and my intuition to find a new place. Bamboo is perfect for me. It is a sanctuary where if anything, time passes too quickly. The atmosphere is set by the beautiful fountain that divides the reception area from the salon area where Yasmin does her magic with hair. Everything about Bamboo is the complete antithesis of what I previously knew as the Salon Experience. I've had hair services (cut and color) by Yasmin and Marina, bodywork by Nina, and nails by Christine. Each of them is an expert practitioner in her field and I would recommend any of them. I am thrilled that Yasmin has expanded into Body & Soul, and look forward to attending classes and events in her new space.
