"I had been looking for a spa to get my massages and facials. The services that I received were beyond fantastic. I would recommend this spa to anyone that wants an excellent experience. If anyone were to receive services that were not up to their standard, the owner is very helpful in resolving your concern. I have never had a problem with this spa or its staff. With any business there are those staff members who do not do as good as job as others and I think that this is were we as consumers need to challenge management to educate staff. I cannot say enough good things about this spa. Go and see for yourself. Give them a chance. " Gina P. 10 News A-List
I never believed it when I was told that regular facials would greatly improve my skin. I just thought it was OK as a once-in-a-while thing on a holiday or for my birthday. After meeting Debbie and getting a facial from her, I was hooked. She is an absolute expert and has a golden touch. I alternate between peels and soothing treatments, and I completely trust her to make the right decisions about what my skin needs. In addition, I love Zen. The calming energy upon just entering the space is wonderful, and the staff are all focused and attentive. I have never felt more relaxed than when I'm there being served hot tea and treated like a king. I have been a client for over two years, and I have never been disappointed."-- Mark S, SpaFinder Review
"My mom, sister and I went for massages and all were very pleased with our treatments. The staff was very nice and friendly in addition to being skilled masseurs/masseuses. The place is a very cozy neighborhood wellness center. Chance worked really hard to get to the root of my back pain issues, and gave my mom and sister very deep, yet relaxing massages. What a lucky find!" -- Nancy P, SpaFinder Review
"I came into Zen Sanctuary for a therapeutic massage and requested a deep tissue therapist that can work out the knots and kinks in my neck and shoulders. I love the energy of Zen and the staffs, is very peaceful and friendly. No gossips like at most places and I was able to enjoy the fine art, decor, and hot tea. When I saw my therapist was very petite and I thought to myself...no way she can do a deep tissue on me! I was totally wrong! She gave me the best deep tissue/sports massage ever! She did some trigger points that were very intense, but worth bearing and felt an automatic relief in my neck down to my back. She's very strong and skilled. I have received many many deep tissue massages before and she is the BEST and a MASTER at her craft! I am so looking forward to my next session with Lindsay - I totally recommend her to everyone." -- SpaFinder Review
San Diego Insider Pages - "Ever pay $90 for a massage just to leave feeling more stressed than when you walked in? Some massage places don't go that extra step and create a serene atmosphere - but that's not Zen Sanctuary. The minute you walk in, they offer you tea, it's quiet, the staff isn't talking about their date the night before, it's all about you and your peaceful state-of-mind. The massage is just the icing on the cake! I've had plenty of massages, but will always go back to Zen because I want to feel relaxed and feel like I got my monies worth." -- Linda M.,

Scientific Research About Healing Touch -- "Back Pain, neck pain, fibromyalgia, and osteoarthritis accounted for about one fourth of the ailments that survey respondents told us about. Standard medical treatments tend to provide only partial relief for those maladies, which may be why a higher proportion of readers tried alternative treatments for them than for other conditions. For all four conditions, readers told us that 'body therapies' - massage, chiropractic, exercise and physical therapy - provided more relief than medications, either conventional or alternative. For back and neck pain, deep tissue massage was rated second to Chiropractic work and for Fibromyalgia and Osteoarthritis, it was rated the best." -- Consumer Reports, (chart taken from magazine)
