Vonda Ricciardi made CityVoter's Best Of Sacramento List three years in a row: third in 2007, fifth in 2008, and second in 2009:
- Vonda can work wonders in one session. I can definitely attest to V's kindness, ability & capacity to handle some severe muscle issues. – Richard S., CityVoter
Google Mappers and MassageAnywhere reviewers also recommend Vonda:
- The most relaxing hour I have ever experienced! The setting is so calm and serene, I had a hard time staying awake. I visited Vonda to see if she could help reduce some pain I was having in my right arm. I was wearing a wrist brace when I arrived, and within a very short time at the hands of Vonda, the pain subsided. – no1chauffeur, Google Maps
- If you get the chance to experience Vonda's fabulous talent, please give yourself the gift. I so love and appreciate all she does for my physical well-being. I always feel like a brand new human after a session with her. – Anonymous, MassageAnywhere
Judy Christen, the massage therapist behind Loosen Up, spends her days kneading and rolling tense muscles, using gentle techniques and aromatic oils to ensure complete relaxation. She specializes in Swedish massage, though she can incorporate a variety of techniques to improve flexibility or release muscles that keep flashing back to old temper tantrums.
At Array of Motion, certified massage therapists strive to educate their clients as well as help them relax. They consult with each person they see to find out what ails them and then discuss the right direction for treatment. Along with traditional modalities such as deep-tissue, hot-stone, and shiatsu massage, the practitioners also provide salt and sugar scrubs, mud wraps, and herbal foot soaks.
The Spa Simply Skin's professional therapists and aestheticians pamper clients inside an oasis of relaxation while beautifying them with an extensive array of spa services. Revivify head masks with a 30-minute microdermabrasion, a gentle treatment designed to increase collagen and elastin levels and even out skin tone. Aluminum oxide crystals exfoliate the skin's surface, eradicating unsightly buildup and cosmetic regrets from enrolling in rodeo-clown college. Although skin will be on its way to a brighter, more evenly toned existence after one session, a course of four to six treatments is recommended for optimal results.
Owner Yavonda Van Dyke––a licensed cosmetologist and massage therapist––is also a certified educator who, when not busy keeping her staff abreast of the latest practices and styles, waxes beautific to the public during advanced-education classes. Visitors stepping into her full-service salon are greeted by cosmetologists, aestheticians, massage therapists, and manicurists, who work side by side to pamper bodies from fingertip to fascia. After arising from a full body Swedish or deep-tissue massage, clients can hop into the styling chair to relax stressed strands with Japanese hair straightening or an intense conditioning treatment. Old nail polish is swiftly swapped out for French tips or artificial overlays during mani-pedis that may be made extra indulgent with skin-softening paraffin treatments, while facials for ladies, gents, and teens help rekindle glowing complexions by removing dirt, oil, and stuck Halloween masks.
The practitioners at Living Roots Chiropractic want to be able to treat the entire family, from pregnant mothers or high-school athletes to 2-year-old toddlers. For example, Dr. Liliana Ulloa—trained in the Webster technique—specializes in adjusting and comforting pregnant moms-to-be by improving their pelvic alignment. Believing that massage therapy extends the benefits of adjustments (and vice versa), Living Roots also pairs chiropractic care with therapeutic massage to manipulate the soft tissue. In a cheery office with dark-green walls and zebra-print tables made from actual rectangular zebras, technicians also help re-educate the body and offer custom treatment plans to help maintain the improvements made through each session.
