Certified adorable by the Cute Salons Association, Tuscany tucks itself into a homelike spot just west of downtown, off Colorado Ave. Step through the doorway into a massage room, where the light, flowing strokes of Swedish massage stokes a burned-out body with renewed life and improved circulation. From there, you'll face dive into a European facial that deeply cleanses your pores and puts a metaphorical leaf blower on dead, clingy skin cells, unveiling new shoots of radiance below. Topped with a freshly shampooed and snipped head of hair, you'll look so sharp that the horse-drawn-carriage driver won't recognize you when you step out the door.

Joyce Garcia has dedicated her entire life to learning how human touch and mindful bodywork treatments can contribute to a person’s holistic wellbeing. In addition to formally studying massage therapy and mastering the techniques of Swedish, deep tissue, and prenatal modalities, she's also trained in the practice of Brennan Healing Science—a hands-on therapy intended to restore a sense of physical and emotional stability by addressing energy imbalances. When human touch alone can’t fully address one's underlying health concerns, Joyce turns to modern technological advancements that support her mission of restoring holistic balance. The handheld XP2 device is one such piece of technology, using high-frequency, electro-sound energy to help cleanse the body, regenerate damaged tissues, and promote healthy, unrestricted flow of the lymphatic system.
