Q&A with Diedrea Welch, Director/Owner
Do you agree with the phrase "beauty is on the inside?" Why or why not?
True beauty is the essence of who you are. It is the spirit behind all of you're actions. Do you give with a spirit of generosity? Are you patient, kind, truthful, and joyful? These qualities are the reality of a human being. The physical aspects of will ultimately fade, but one's inner qualities have the power to change lives.

When she's trying to make someone relax, massage therapist Jenny Henderson doesn't stop at a simple Swedish, sports, or hot-stone massage. She supplements most of these treatments with sweet-smelling aromatherapy, plus optional add-ons. Two of these?a scented foot bath and reflexology treatments?pamper the feet. The remaining treatment, cupping, can stimulate circulation and the flow of lymph fluid using suction. For clients who prefer a less firm sports massage, Jenny also leads stretching-only sessions, which help them to become flexible enough to snap a football to themselves.
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.
Although certified massage therapist Christi Crapotta studied dance in college, when she?s at Urban Kneads Sacramento, it?s her hands that trip the light fantastic. Her massages follow her results-oriented approach to treatment: she tracks her patients? progress each time they come to visit to ensure they?re improving and not competing in underground limbo contests. When muscles require an extra dose of relaxation, she unleashes her specialty: hot-stone massages designed to loosen sinews and untangle particularly hard-to-reach knots.
