David Feiling became a massage therapist in 1996, and began his career working with clients at salons and spas. There, he developed an appreciation for the mental peace that beauty treatments could provide, especially when paired with the physical relaxation of a massage. So, he earned his cosmetology license, and decided to combine both practices under one roof. He offers four different massage modalities, including deep tissue and shiatsu, with add-ons such as thermal heat or a deep scalp treatment available with each service. He also provides skincare and hairstyling services, helping newly relaxed clients look as a good as they feel. And to treat the mind directly, he uses hypnosis to help clients with stress, compulsive behaviors, and phobias of swinging pocket watches.
Red Lotus Reflexology and Wellness Center is a place to relax and heal. At this soothing center, licensed massage therapists offer revitalizing reflexology treatments, during which firm pressure is applied to specific points on the feet believed to correspond to major organ and muscle groups in the body. Also offering Swedish, Thai, deep-tissue, and hot-stone massage, as well as infrared-sauna sessions and herbal wraps, the center is a calming headquarters for reviving the body and spirit.
The mission- and volunteer-driven clinic provides alternative, holistic health care to low-income and underserved communities at a complimentary or low rate. Its team dispenses naturopathic and chiropractic medicine from its office and at an array of outside events. For almost a decade, it's been the driving force behind the San Diego Healing Arts Festival, which in recent years has been visited by 30,000 guests. During Alternative Happy Hour events, healthy snacks fuel attendees who pay $10 to experience acupuncture, chiropractic treatments, massage, and energy healing, along with courses in yoga, drumming, and mild or spicy salsa dance. The clinic also donates services to organizations such as the YWCA women's shelter and the Wounded Warrior Project, which benefits veterans affected by injuries and psychological issues.
Licensed massage therapist Wendy Grudzien has been practicing massage therapy for more than 15 years. During that time she has become particularly skilled at deep-tissue, aromatherapy, and reflexology techniques. At San Diego Massage Care, she unleashes her entire repertoire of services for customers who are suffering from stress, pain, or hard-to-reach pinky toes.
The experienced aestheticians at Ageless and Beautiful foster smoother dermises and slimmer waistlines with Lipomassage, also known as endermologie. During the noninvasive, FDA-approved treatment, trained hands guide dual-action rollers across problem areas to break apart fat cells. The rollers, much like a moody blowfish, employ a combination of agitation and suction designed to shrink cellulite and firm loose skin. Though not classified as a weight-loss procedure or a mammal, Lipomassage can reduce inches in addition to reducing the appearance of cellulite.
At Latitude Zero Skin Care, aestheticians rejuvenate skin with beauty treatments such as the European facial, which focuses on cleansing and balancing skin tone. Glycolic peels help combat sun damage and age spots, and waxing services can clear away unsightly hair from eyebrows and legs.
