What people are saying about Viva Radiance:
“I am a longtime client of Patricia. I get regular treatments of microdermabrasion from her and could not be happier with the results, I have recommended her to many of my friends as well. I suffered from slight acne scarring from my teens as well as hyper-pigmentation due to excessive sun exposure, both of which have been severely reduced by my treatments. I think that you will be extremely pleased with the results. She is very cautious of reaction, as I have terribly sensitive skin that needs to be monitored through out my session because my other facialists would not be as vigilant and I would instantly break out into red splotches and have severe acne for days afterward. I have never experienced this reaction after any of my microdermabrasion treatments with Patricia. ” ~Julie from Ocean Beach, California
“I have been a facial person for a long time but about a year ago, I wanted to give someone new a try. I found Patricia at Viva Radiance and was so glad I did! I’ve now had numerous facials with Patricia. My favorite service is the microdermabrasion facial. My skin was so smooth after each treatment! It’s well worth the price. If you can afford to, Patricia always has a deal on buying a series which saves even more money. Patricia has a soothing, relaxing style which makes the facial even more enjoyable. Don’t forget to ask her about her home made soaps and lotions!” ~Liza from Coronado, California

I have always been drawn to different healing modalities. During my undergraduate work, I was interested in becoming a Physical Therapist. I chose an area of study in which we learned about the promotion of mobility, ability, and quality of life through examination, evaluation, assessment, and physical intervention. We learned special tests that allowed us to assess injuries and choose proper rehabilitation strategies. Additionally, I spent three and a half years working as a Personal Trainer, during which I learned more about the body and training it for ideal performance.
My interest in Complementary and Alternative Medicines (CAM) began when I read the Mayo Clinic’s Book of Alternative Medicine shortly after completing my undergraduate degree. Through a series of events, I found myself at Pacific College of Oriental Medicine studying Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM). During the 11-semester program, I interned in the on-campus clinic, an off-site Senior’s clinic, and spent two semesters at Rady Children’s Hospital working with the children in the hematology, oncology, and chronic pain departments. It was both a humbling and beautiful experience to see how Acupuncture could immediately and dramatically improve the level of comfort and quality of life of my patients.
I believe that a well-rounded, healthy life is not limited to simply “proper diet and exercise”. Health is maintained through adequate nutrition; invigorating physical activity; mental stimulation; emotional processing, support, and intimacy; and caring for one’s body through modalities such a Massage, Chiropractic, and Acupuncture.
