Massage in San Diego

With its nearly perfect weather, gorgeous beaches, and local wineries, San Diego has to be one of the most relaxing cities in the country. With that said, sometimes you just need to get a massage. And these are some of the best places for a massage in San Diego, whether you want something more relaxing, something more therapeutic, or something more intense, but totally worth it afterward.

The Green Tea Spa—Northern San Diego

If you’re intrigued about using CBD as a beauty and wellness treatment, a visit to The Green Tea Spa may be in order. After noticing the benefits of CBD on the skin, the owner decided to incorporate it into the spa's facials and massages. As a result, guests leave reviews such as these:

 

“The massage was wonderful. The oil used left my body totally relaxed.” – Deborah H.

 

“This was, by far, the best massage I’ve ever gotten. The CBD oil massage and personalized attention I received was relaxing and much appreciated. I will go back every time I’m in San Diego!.” – Joanne Y.


“Amazing! wonderful experience, the staff was very professional and helpful. Very peaceful setting. You must try this place, more than worth it! Will definitely be returning to continue my therapy.” – Alfonso O.

Massage Envy—San Diego Area

Since opening in Scottsdale, Arizona, in 2002, Massage Envy has spread to more than 1,000 locations across the United States, including multiple locations around the San Diego area. It also has more than 1.5 million members. Why is it so popular? It offers discounted rates on monthly massages when you buy a membership.

Pro Tip: Shower the day you’re scheduled for a massage. This is not really to make the therapist more comfortable, but to encourage your skin to better absorb massage lotions and oils.

Wellness with Dametria—Eastern San Diego

Can’t decide if your aches need hot or cold therapy? Head to Wellness with Dametria for a Fire and Ice massage. During the 90-minute treatment, the therapist utilizes both hot and cold stones to treat pain. The hot stones warm up the muscles and make them more pliant, whereas the cold stones help reduce inflammation. The spa also has a delightful foot treatment treatment that combines a relaxing foot massage with a scrub and mask for an elevated take on a massage you would get during a pedicure.

Did You Know?

 

The stones used during hot-stone massages are typically heated anywhere between 100 and 150 degrees F. The therapist will either use the stones as massage tools or place a towel between the stones and your skin and leave them there to rest.
