International Orange has two locations. Our flagship spa is located in San Francisco, and our second location is located in Marin County at the Marin Country Mart.
Please arrive at least 15 minutes before your appointment begins to change into a robe and slippers and if you are a new client, to fill out our new client form. You are more than welcome to come in as early as you would like to enjoy our amenities: in San Francisco, we have a dry sauna, a beautiful lounge and deck area, in Marin, we have a steam room, dry sauna, and a large sunny deck and indoor lounge.
We are a serene and relaxing space so please be mindful around other guests. Please turn your cell phones to silent if left inside our locker rooms and refrain from talking on your phone in our common areas.
At International Orange we strive to maintain a serene and meditative environment, so our clients can truly relax. For this reason, we do not allow alcoholic beverages on site. If you would like to enjoy a drink outside, we are happy to recommend a variety of restaurants or wine bars to explore on Fillmore Street or within Marin Country Mart.
Before your facial: Refrain from Retinoid products (prescription or over the counter) for at least 1 week before your service. If you are interested in a stronger treatment (power peels, microdermabrasion) we recommend stopping 10 days prior to your service. Suspend the use of any AHA (alpha-hydroxy acid) containing products 3 days pretreatment to reduce sensitivity to our active services.
Men: Please do not shave the day of your facial. The day before is fine to lessen sensitivity.
Accutane: We cannot perform facial waxing or stronger facial treatments on current Accutane users. Your esthetician will advise on a more appropriate facial.
Cold sores: We cannot perform facial treatments if an active cold sore is present. Cold sores are viral and can be spread to nose and/or eyes where there are other mucus membranes.
After your facial: Allow 2-3 days before any facial waxing or returning to any AHA (alpha-hydroxy acid) containing products. Allow a full week before resuming Retinoid products.
Power Peels: Your skin may feel a tightness and/or dryness by day 2 after a power peel. This response is normal and expected. It will subside after a few days.
FACIALS AND PREGNANCY
Facials are safe during pregnancy and will be modified when necessary, i.e., certain products such as retinol and salicylic acids will be excluded. Please note that although the treatment bed can be inclined up to a 35 degree angle, it may be best to book a shorter facial in order to prevent discomfort from lying on your back. Your esthetician can also recommend appropriate and active home care for you skin during this unique time.
WHEN NOT TO RECEIVE A MASSAGE
Please help us keep our spa and other clients healthy. Avoid visiting when you have symptoms of a communicable disease, infection or virus including but not limited to:
If you had surgery recently, please make sure you receive permission from your doctor to receive a massage. There may be other conditions not mentioned in this list which massage therapy is contraindicated.
When in doubt, DON’T. If you suffer from a particular illness and are unsure if it safe for you to receive massage therapy, please check with your medical doctor before scheduling an appointment.
PRENATAL + POSTNATAL MASSAGE
International Orange welcomes women with normal, low-risk pregnancies in their 1st, 2nd and 3rd trimester. We believe massage is an integral part of health and well-being during pregnancy and pregnant women can benefit greatly from a variety of techniques offered by IO’s professional massage therapists. However, women in high-risk pregnancies should consult their doctor or midwife before beginning pregnancy massage services.
What are the benefits of Prenatal Massage?
Massage therapy during pregnancy is a wonderful compliment to traditional prenatal care. Some of the benefits include:
Prenatal Massage Therapy Contraindications
Performing massage therapy during pregnancy is contraindicated for women experiencing any of the following symptoms/signs:
What can I expect during a Prenatal Massage?
IO offers 45, 60 or 90 minute prenatal massage. Our therapists are trained in prenatal massage techniques and will take extra care to ensure our pregnancy massage clients are comfortable. Please speak up at any point during the massage if you need to move, use the restroom, or if you are too hot or too cold. Side lying positioning with a supportive body pillow, wedge pillows and towels are used to alleviate the extra strain on the lower back and pelvic area when the pressure of massage techniques are applied. We do not use the pregnancy cushions which allow a client to lie face down. The In FIore essential oil body balms are a great upgrade for your massage, except for the Tangiers or Dayla balms which are contraindicated for pregnancy. If you experience discomfort at any time during the massage, tell your therapist immediately.
Women may want to consider booking a postnatal massage in the months after labor and delivery to allow for more overall comfort, especially after a C-section delivery and/or during breastfeeding.

We love furry friends and family members but only Service Animals (defined as trained animals to assist the hearing impaired, visually impaired, or the physically disabled) are allowed in our Spa. We are unable to allow Emotional Support Animals in our spa at this time.
The California State Board of Cosmetology and the Board of Consumer Affairs have specific rules and regulations stating that no animals, other than registered service animals are allowed in the spa at any time. We also take into consideration that some of our clients and employees may be allergic or have other issues with pets, and we strive to maintain a sanitary and serene space at all times.
Children need to be accompanied by an adult and under the supervision of an adult in our retail area at all times. We are not able to attend to or watch any unsupervised child at any time. International Orange welcomes guests 12 years of age and older who are receiving services in our spa area. We have instituted new Minor age guidelines for our services:
A credit card is required to schedule a spa service at IO. To avoid being subject to 100% of the service price, cancellations and changes to services must be made 24 hours prior to your scheduled appointment. The full service(s) cost will be charged for any late cancellation or no-show appointments.
Should you arrive late to your appointment, your service will be modified to maximize your remaining service time without compromising the next appointment. If your service is shorter due to your late arrival, you will still be charged the full price of the service.
We appreciate your respect of our cancellation and late policies.
