Massage therapist Evelyn is a muscle whisperer. She calms tense muscles using nothing more than her two trained hands. Depending on her clients? ailments, Evelyn glides her hands along the back, pushes her thumbs into pressure points, deeply kneads dermal canvases, or gently rocks the body to sleep while dispensing a lullaby. Her sessions are customized for each individual, covering their scalp, neck, shoulder, and upper back in 15 minutes to traversing the entire body in a 90-minute period.

She couples that compassionate nature and bodywork experience in her work at Lotus Hand Healing Arts. There, she works to help a range of clients, from families to professional athletes, with deep yet gentle massage sessions and nutrition services.
In a perfect world, it wouldn?t be difficult to find time for a massage or an aesthetician you trust. The team at Solano Wellness Spa have been listening to those needs from their clients for more than 10 years, all the while making their services an accessible part of self-care and winding down. With an accomplished staff of registered massage therapists and certified aestheticians, each treatment gets down to the clients? specific goals, whether they seek to hydrate skin, diminish fine lines, wax brows, or soothe backs.
The licensed therapists at Oliv'u Spa & Massage Wellness Center know that the best massages make you feel good from the inside out. It's no surprise, then, that everything they do is meant to promote balance and relaxation?right down to their use of all-natural and organic products. Though some of their most popular services include bamboo and hot-stone bodywork, these therapists will happy stray from the techniques dictated by each style in order to address specific areas of concern.
Oliv'u also has a wide range of waxing services. Using a curated selection of products to prevent irritation and ingrown hairs, staffers apply their expertise on clients' specific areas to ensure an enjoyable experience. A nutritionist and aesthetician are additionally on hand, both of whom emphasize natural treatments and discourage overconsumption of massage oil.
Mark Richards has worked in a number of settings, including gyms and spas, but he prefers a private studio because that setting allows for him to provide personal attention to each of his clients. The result of that preference: Natural Healing & Massage by Mark Richards, CMT. The licensed massage therapist welcomes each client with an open ear and two capable hands. His training and decade-plus of experience has helped him master many modalities, including relaxing Swedish massages, and the more therapeutic deep-tissue variety. He can render sports massage, as well?a technique designed to help athletes prepare for a big game or relax after a demoralizing spelling bee contest against a sportswriter. Throughout all his work, Mark takes particular care to tailor each massage to meet the individual client's needs, rather than offering boiler plate massages.
In her years as a massage therapist, 23rd and J owner Teresa Vega has not only perfected her technique, but she's honed her own signature massage style. She puts an extra-relaxing spin on modalities such as reflexology, hot-stone, Thai, and deep-tissue massage?Teresa complements every session with a bubbly footbath, a salt scrub, and hot towels. Outside of her massage offerings, Teresa also uses tattoo ink and a steady, artful hand to apply permanent eyeliner, lip liner, lipstick, and brow makeup. She'll even add a sassy beauty mark, or draw a pair of glasses so clients always look smart.
