I am an avid lover of massages and have had many at spas and other locations over the years. I met Francesca at a Spa downtown at the Hotel Palomar. The receptionist told me that she was very good at "energy" healing alongside her massage, which was intriguing to me. I found her to be kind, gentle, but also very strong and effective in her technique of looking at my body's alignment and tense areas. As well, she works to balance out my energetic body, which is, I'll admit, somewhat unconventional, but she talks you through that process as she does it and I believe is an incredible plus to the process.
As a massage therapist, she is top notch, and the only person in San Diego I've found to truly be effective. I have a stressful job, and am very active so have at times had injuries and muscle tension, and her techniques have helped tremendously for both of those aspects. I absolutely recommend Francesca and would be glad to provide referrals to anyone if interested.

I suffer from a condition known as Adult-Onset Asthma, and consequently, when I get a virus or a cold, it hits me much harder than most people.
Recently, I got a chest cold, and with it, had substantial lung congestion, which resulted in virtually constant coughing as my body attempted to clear my lung passages. Because of the coughing, for two weeks straight I was unable to get more than a few hours of sleep each night, which delayed my recovery. My lung congestion and coughing was so persistent that I cancelled one of my regularly-scheduled massage appointments with Francesca for fear that I would make her sick, too.
After the second week of limited sleep, because my energy level was so low, and because the lack of energy was keeping me from getting better, I did ask Francesca if she could perform a customized combination massage/energy session, based on the specifics of my situation. Francesca asked me a variety of detailed questions, and then started the session, which was quite different from any that Francesca had performed previously.
Following the session, beginning that night (and for every night since) I have been able to sleep all night long. Now that I am getting the necessary rest, I have been making significant progress on my recovery, and my lung congestion is almost completely gone."

I had a very emotional 3 months with the death of my husband and 2 others. I was traveling to San Francisco and stayed in San Diego. My lower back and knee was extremely uncomfortable and painful. I was referred to Francesca and had her come give me a treatment . I'm not certain how long it took but the back was feeling so much better I could roll over much easier. The knee also was quite relieved from pain. I was more confident I would have an easier trip back out to Virginia the next day. With out the use of a Wheel chair at the airport Mary M. Va
