HALF MOON BAY, CA -- (Marketwired) -- 08/25/14 -- The Ritz-Carlton Spa, Half Moon Bay introduces the Japanese Pearlescence Facial, a signature treatment that draws upon centuries of ancient beauty secrets to achieve glowing, beautiful skin.
One of the first lessons the Geisha teach is the importance of ritual, and that the ritual is to pause time for a moment to find peace. Their skincare ritual is as elegant as it is simple and consists of four steps for pure, polished, radiant and supple skin. Inspired by an ancient Japanese beauty manuscript that described how women achieved luminous complexions centuries ago, this treatment emphasizes many benefits found in natural, time-tested ingredients like pearls, seaweed, rice bran and green tea.
Combining the wisdom of generations with cutting-edge science and the healing and therapeutic qualities of the sea, the new Japanese Pearlescence Facial provides guests with a relaxing and rejuvenating experience that restores skin to its youthful radiance. Traditional Japanese acupressure techniques also promote lymphatic drainage and boost microcirculation. The 60-minute Pearlescence Facial is $185 USD weekday and $200 USD weekends.
"The Japanese Pearlescence Facial brings back the meaning and ritual of not only taking care of your skin, but taking care of yourself on a deeper level," said Spa Director Alison Abbott. "TATCHA's skin care philosophy of honoring the experience, combined with a results oriented skin care line, provides guests with an education of what it means to take care of your skin and how important it is to be intentional with the process. With crushed pearls and other elements from the sea, this new treatment aligns perfectly with our coastal location," she added.
The 16,000-square-foot Spa offers a lavish setting to indulge in relaxation and rejuvenation. The Half Moon Bay Spa features 16 treatment rooms including 2 couples rooms and 3 facial rooms, as well as a co-ed Roman mineral bath. Resort guests can enjoy signature face and body treatments including the Pumpkin Body Peel, inspired by Half Moon Bay's Northern California location in the 'Pumpkin Capital of the World.'

The Internet of Things is clearly many things: data collection and analytics, wearables, Smart Grids and Smart Cities, the Industrial Internet, and more. Cool platforms like Arduino, Raspberry Pi, Intel's Galileo and Edison, and a diverse world of sensors are making the IoT a great toy box for developers in all these areas. In this Power Panel at @ThingsExpo, moderated by Conference Chair Roger Strukhoff, panelists discussed what things are the most important, which will have the most profound...

In today's enterprise, digital transformation represents organizational change even more so than technology change, as customer preferences and behavior drive end-to-end transformation across lines of business as well as IT. To capitalize on the ubiquitous disruption driving this transformation, companies must be able to innovate at an increasingly rapid pace. Traditional approaches for driving innovation are now woefully inadequate for keeping up with the breadth of disruption and change facin...

Microservices are a very exciting architectural approach that many organizations are looking to as a way to accelerate innovation. Microservices promise to allow teams to move away from monolithic "ball of mud" systems, but the reality is that, in the vast majority of organizations, different projects and technologies will continue to be developed at different speeds. How to handle the dependencies between these disparate systems with different iteration cycles? Consider the "canoncial problem"...

The cloud. Like a comic book superhero, there seems to be no problem it can’t fix or cost it can’t slash. Yet making the transition is not always easy and production environments are still largely on premise. Taking some practical and sensible steps to reduce risk can also help provide a basis for a successful cloud transition. A plethora of surveys from the likes of IDG and Gartner show that more than 70 percent of enterprises have deployed at least one or more cloud application or workload. Y...

I recently attended and was a speaker at the 4th International Internet of @ThingsExpo at the Santa Clara Convention Center. I also had the opportunity to attend this event last year and I wrote a blog from that show talking about how the “Enterprise Impact of IoT” was a key theme of last year’s show. I was curious to see if the same theme would still resonate 365 days later and what, if any, changes I would see in the content presented.

Cloud computing delivers on-demand resources that provide businesses with flexibility and cost-savings. The challenge in moving workloads to the cloud has been the cost and complexity of ensuring the initial and ongoing security and regulatory (PCI, HIPAA, FFIEC) compliance across private and public clouds. Manual security compliance is slow, prone to human error, and represents over 50% of the cost of managing cloud applications. Determining how to automate cloud security compliance is critical...
