This is not just another nice back rub. This is a full on treatment. I hurt myself playing rugby several years ago, work at a desk, fly a lot, lift weights, play ultimate frisbee and despite my best efforts, my neck and back get thrashed. Enter Adam. I've been going to Adam for a year now and it seems that he has been discovered and for good reason. In addition to exeptional schooling in Massage Therapy, he has a warm and genuine approach with people in and out of his practice. In a world of so many massage therapists, Adam stands out for his knowledge and experience and, man, he just has a knack. Today, I couldn't get an appointment with Adam, so I booked with Eugenie, the newest Oxygen Massage Therapist. Eugenie went to the same school as Adam, so, again, she is very well trained. Her approach is very warm and genuine as well and if you're one of those folks who prefers a female's hands, you're in luck, but don't think she can't get in deep - she is also very strong. I recommend Oxygen Massage Therapy to anyone, whether you think you need a massage or not, because guess what- you do need a massage. And you need a good one.
Dr Rajagopal was referred to me by 2 friends who had an excellent experience with her. After gaining 100 lbs with my 2 children and loosing it too quickly, it caused excessive sagging skin. I just knew it was time to to get some work done and regain self confidence back. I am so glad I had the courage to finally do so. I learned that the muscles in my abdomen had been torn and were in need of repair. Torn abdominal muscles happen often and is often ignored. My surgery was only a few days ago and Dr Rajagopal changed my bandages today. When I looked down at what she uncovered I was so excited to see a difference already in my shape. My biggest thought was WOW, i have a belly button. I will anxiously await the day Dr. Rajagopal gives me the thumbs up to begin a regular workout routine. Dr. Rajagopal is not just excellent at what she does but she is very kind and caring. In addition, her entire staff is friendly professional and helped to put me at ease. I used to work in the medical field and it was a pleasant experience knowing that some doctors still enjoy what they do and enjoy helping people.
I first tried to get a room in Carlsbad (the city) and was surprised to see the very high rates. I was arriving late, spending one night and getting up early to visit Carlsbad with the family. I happened to notice that there was one property located in Whites City very close to the entrance of Carlsbad Caverns National Monument. I assume the city is named after Jim White, the cowboy/cave explorer that put Carlsbad Caverns on the map. I was concerned with the single star the hotel had, but decided the good price and close proximity made it worth a try. The room was large, clean and had two queen sized beds. The bathroom had obviously been remodeled very recently. The breakfast consisted of just coffee, OJ and packaged muffins, but what do you expect for a sub 100 rate. The property worked out great for us and we were one of the first through the park gates in the morning!
I've been a patient of Dr Rajagopal's now for 6 years and I wouldn't trust anyone else. She is always very honest and good at managing expectations which we all having going into surgery. The results of both my procedures were wonderful and my recovery time was as she described. I chose Dr R because after having lipo from a very well respected male plastic surgeon, I was less than impressed by his constant "up sell" every time I went in for a checkup. " we can fix this and that", it got the point that I just stopped going for follow ups because he made me feel so bad about the rest of me. I wanted a woman doctor who understands how women feel about their bodies and aging. Thank you Dr R for being so skilled and specialty for caring so such about your patients.
This was one of the most fantastic experiences I have ever had and shared with my loved ones. If you are shy about your body you may not do well here as clothing is optional. Also understand that due to the nature of the scrub massage the people giving it don't wear too much either. Once you got past that and the idea that you were being scrubbed in places you never imagined it was wonderful. Not being to shy about my body I was okay and able to relax and enjoy the treatment. When we were done all of us (5) admitted how wonderful our skin and bodies felt. I am hoping to return in the Fall again this year to scrub off the old dead summer skin.
I have been seeing Leslie for my waxing and facials. She does the best eyebrow shaping I've ever had. I tend to change up my hair color on a regular basis and she's able to tint both my eyelashes and eyebrows to compliment whatever shade I come in with. Her bikini waxes are quick and thorough. She switches up my facials to meet my skin's changing needs and I leave glowing after every appointment! I have completely switched to their Luxa Skin product line. It's fantastic and does not break the bank. I love the location - easy to access from public transportation and in a part of the mission that actually has parking!
Regina is being my hairstylist for many years. I always get compliments on my color and cut. She is not only coloring and cutting my hair but also gives great advices on how to take care and style my hair after I leave the salon. Prior to coming to her, I did not know what to do with the hair after the first wash after the cut. I give her all the credit for me finally being able to style my hair and keep it healthy. The products she recommends me for my hair are great. I highly recommend this hairstylist. She is always on top of the latest trends in hair style and color.
End of the year field trip. I'm under restrictions for the most part with things like this, so I was in the middle, not paddling, with one of my teachers and my guidance counselor. It was totally amusing. We were one of six Canoes. The other canoe we were attacking at the beginning was full of three of my closest friends that go to the school with me and have become a huge part of my life.. It was an amazing trip and our two canoes stayed behind to enjoy the time and just goof off while the younger kids made it a seven mile race, haha. We had fun, it really was great.
"I had a very pleasant experience Dr. Rajagopal and her team. The entire staff is friendly and polite. Dr. Rajagopal is extremely attentive, un-rushed and explanatory throughout the entire process (I had fillers.) She took the time to explain everything I would experience pre and post procedure and was spot on. During the procedure, I got the feeling she was working like an artist, sculpting my face with all her attention toward creating the best, most natural and satisfying outcome with my goals in mind. She is my face doctor from here on!"
