Category: Shopping + Fashion Articles


An unobtrusive strip mall in Bellevue would seem the last place to enter a Zen state, but soothing stress is the new EN SALON’S forte. Owned by the low-profile wife of a certain Japanese Seattle Mariners star, En (13112 NE 20th St., Suite 500, Bellevue 425.883.1010 specializes in Japanese spa services, including blissful scalp, neck and shoulder massage with fragrant Shigeta Japanese oil ($50); scalp-cleansing massage treatments ($40–$65); and a signature reflexology pressure-point foot massage ($45). En, which means “to create harmony and flow” in Japanese, is a serene space peppered with local art and posh chandeliers. The salon also offers classic Western nail treatments (manicures, $35–$45; pedicures, $45–$55), plus nail designs such as intricate cherry blossoms and Japanese characters (prices start in the $60–$80 range, depending on intricacy of the design; moment of bliss during hand massage, no charge).
