Our humble beginning and our desire to reach out to our community.
Beau Facial and Massage Therapy began from a very simple and humble beginning. It was our desire to reach out to our community and present affordable treatments that not only offered therapeutic results, but personal connections as well. An honest commitment to our clients is our goal with every treatment we give.
We are often asked how the name Beau came about. It’s a special story that is close to our hearts.
A few years ago we adopted a handsome kitty from the Island Cat Resources and Adoption organization in Alameda. He was a large handsome 15 year old sweetheart that had a few things going against him. At an advanced age he found himself homeless and lonely. In addition he was born with a brain disorder called Cerebellar hypoplasia. It is a disorder found in cats and dogs in which the cerebellum is not completely mature at birth. This disorder causes jerky movements, tremors and generally uncoordinated motion. Beau waltzed and tumbled around the house as if he was kitty drunk. Sadly he also suffered from a heart murmur.
Each and every day he expressed his gratitude for being rescued. Each morning we were greeted (sometimes very loudly) with his affectionate howls. Each evening he would wait by the door unable to contain himself waiting for us to come home. Every time we sat he was on our lap as fast as he could manage to find a way on it. Beau was a lot of work. He required special food and medicine, and wasn’t always so keen on using his litter box. However, he truly touched our hearts forever in a way I can’t quite explain with words.
Beau’s little heart gave up on February 20, 2012. He blessed our lives for 2 years and we continue to think of him each time we unlock the door of our little shop that bears his name.
