Everything will be fully operational on Saturday August 8th. Really looking forward to expanded services to include aromatherapy foot baths and hot stone therapy! The space is easily accessible from the Pacific Hwy-Barnett Street corridor or Rosecrans-Lytton intersection. The building is quiet and offers a peaceful space for treatments.
Some of our new neighbors include Liberty Station, Loma Square, Sprouts, Jamba Juice, Fleet and Family Support Center Point Loma, Hole in the Wall and more. An overall great mix of people, services and opportunities to do community, veterans and service member support!
