At South County Physical Therapy & Pilates, physical therapists and certified Pilates instructors join forces to fight unhealthiness. Co-owner and Director of Physical Therapy Melissa Walls channels experience honed during her time at the University of California Davis, where she earned a degree in Exercise Science and a minor in Psychology. The physical therapy sector of the practice delivers one-on-one attention to heal patients quickly and permanently, honing in on the origin of their pain with treatments that tend to the entire person, not solely the injury or their squeakiest muscle. This therapy blends seamlessly with the second prong of the business: Pilates. Warmed by the natural light that flows through large studio windows, instructors sculpt lean torsos and cultivate body awareness during private lessons or group classes performed atop the reformer or mat.
Most of licensed doctor of chiropractic Steven Gentry’s work takes place during Chiro Sports Fitness’s adjusting hours. From roughly 8 a.m. to noon and 3:30 p.m. to 6:30 p.m., he stays available to correct spinal issues, alleviating the muscle aches, fatigue, and range of motion issues associated with vertebral misalignment. His team complements these chiropractic services with massages in styles including trigger point, pregnancy, sports, deep-tissue, and relaxation.
True to its name, Mr. and Ms. Day Spa serves as a quiet sanctuary for both men and women, where a staff of massage therapists and aestheticians dedicate themselves to the belief that spa services are essential for both mental and physical health. Versed in seven types of massage, therapists employ any combination of modalities while orchestrating custom massages to soothe muscles sore from supporting the body's cast-iron skeleton. The equally versatile skincare technicians use Dermalogica products during facials to restore skin's healthy glow.
Our feet carry the weight of our bodies with every step, which means they also carry all that tension. At Qin Massage, clients can opt for a massage that also focuses on their feet, for up to 40 blissful minutes. The therapists will also combine the foot massage with full-body sessions, during which they switch up their techniques depending on the tension level. Massages are delivered in private candlelit rooms with minimal decor, except for a live plant in the corner that whispers lullabies. The spa is open late, too, until 10:30 at night, perfect for winding down before bedtime.
The Yogi Spa's experienced aestheticians apply yogic philosophies to spa treatments in an effort to promote total-body wellness. They use organic products during their signature facials, customizing the blends of vitamins and minerals to suit individual skin needs. They also perform soothing body treatments such as mud wraps and ear candling.
