Rick Sanchez

Certified Massage Therapist 1421 Lincoln Avenue (619) 688-0668 Rick Sanchez has been certi-

fied and licensed since 1995, working on both the east and west coast, as well as between northern and southern Califor- nia. In San Diego he is located in the Hillcrest/University Heights area, right off the 163 freeway with plenty of parking,

and easy access by car or pub- lic transportation. His train- ing began in Sonoma County in Northern California. Since then, he has worked all around the country. His techniques were developed specifically for men, including Swedish and deep-tissue combinations (Swedish is a lighter form of massage for less-strained muscle groups and deep-tissue works the more strenuous and stronger muscle groups). All appointments include a variety of heated oils and lotions, as well as specific crèmes, depending on your issue. Aromatherapy is used to relax your spirit and senses and is used in all appoint- ments. Sanchez also uses a variety of instruments which may be needed to increase circulation and blood flow to certain muscle groups, creating a “revitalizing effect,” which is his goal.

Hot-stone therapy also

is included in the 90-minute massage appointments, which deepens the relaxation of muscles and is believed to help balance energies in the body. The environments are clean, tranquil and calming. A shower is available at both locations. Mr. Sanchez’s goal is to main- tain his high volume of repeat customers by offering them a reasonable rate with the utmost comfort and satisfaction.
