Beautiful and Uplifting
Outstanding service and treatment from Tiglat. He is an intuitive and nurturing healer who has created a healing space here in Encinitas. All elements blend together beautifully to make a very special and unique experience. Highly recommended.

Did an AMAZING job and really knows what he is doing!! My back has never felt better! He not only uses hand crafted hot stones that fit his hands, but he also hand crafted bamboo rolling pin type things to use with hot oils! I get really bad, deep knots but he was able to get them out for a good couple of weeks!!! Really did a great job and cannot wait to go back!!

A wonderful birthday treat
I was blessed with a massage at Healing Ki for my birthday, and it was an absolutely wonderful experience. Tiglat was a very kind and gentle soul, and obviously very good at what he does. He found my trouble spots, and the hot bamboo roll was amazing. I left feeling like I had a two hour massage rather than the 50 minute massage I purchased. He really is wonderful, and I would recommend Healing Ki to anyone. Thank you Tiglat for making my birthday special, and I'm sorry it took me so long to write a review!

I do not write reviews but had to express how wonderful Healing Ki is for a massage. My husband purchased a gift certificate for my last birthday after I raved about my massage with Tiglat during our couple's massage for our anniversary. I did not make the time to go since I was busy caring for our newborn. I finally made the time and it was the start to one of the best birthdays ever. Tiglat was as all the reviews state- AMAZING. I did not realize how tense I was until his hands melted the knots and stress away. The hot stones feel wonderful and with the addition of the warm bamboo sticks, it was simply a perfect massage. I have been to the Ritz and did not walk away feeling as great as I did. I thought my massage with Tiglat the first time was the best but he somehow managed to make this one even better. Thank you Tiglat for your expertise and professionalism. I will not wait so long again to receive another massage from you. Thank you so much for making my birthday so memorable.

Like many others, I chose Tiglat's service with my certificates based on the high star rating. Tiglat customizes your message to your needs. It's not a spa message place..it's a "let's get down to the root of the issues" experience. Tiglat knew exactly where my trouble spots were wothout any direction from me. He used hot stones and bamboo sticks (may I say heaven) to work out the issues. His message table is made of memory foam and it's heated (yes, we are back to heaven). Besides his amazing work, Tiglat is a gentle soul. We chatted a bit afterwards and he had me on my way to a meditation garden afterwards. Now I'm not the type that goes for the such, but I was like, hey, I'm feeling great, why not? And so I went, walked around, and felt as if this experience was as well part of my healing message. Thank you, Tiglat. I will definitely see you soon.

I received a Spafinder gift card and, while reseraching my available options, found Healing Ki. How could this one person have so many great reviews when world renowned spas have only a couple of reviews? "Must be a marketing scam," I thought. Still, I was in a great bit of discomfort and decided to give Healing Ki a call. Tiglat answered the phone himself and, although he couldn't help me that same day (it was 4PM), I was able to see him the next day. Tiglat is personable, professional, and knowledgeable. His studio is clean, modern and comfortable. After receiving a 60 minute Signature Massage, I am convinced Tiglat is the real deal. People give him rave reviews because they are well deserved! He customizes treatment to your specific needs and uses techniques that you likely have not experienced before. Give him a try....you won't be disappointed!

This was my first theraputic/non "spa" massage and I finally learned what I have been missing. Rather than the cookie cutter/routine massage I normally receive at a spa, Tiglat personalized my massage to focus on the areas that needed the most attention. He was very informative and took time to answer my questions after my massage. The hot stones, bamboo and aromatherapy were all wonderful too. I will definitely be going back!

I have never had a better massage! Can't wait for my next one. Tiglat is very knowledgeable and is able to adjust his treatment to your body's needs. I highly recommend him..

Tiglat is an amazing practitioner. When I first went to Healing Ki, I wasn't too familiar with the different types of massage therpy and what it would do for my body and my overall wellbeing. Tiglat was patient and listened to me. He made me very comfortable with the process... and then gave me a fabulous massage. The calming music, the heated table and the scented oil all worked to create a soothing environment. I am completely hooked and absolutely see the value in this therapy. I am now a repeat customer. I HIGHLY recommend the 90 minute Signature massage!

Healing Ki Massage with Tiglat
Tiglat is a very knowledgable, warm, and skilled massage therapist. I had never had a massage with the hot stones before and found them unbelievably relaxing and soothing on all of my sore, tight muscles. Tiglat shared some great recommendations for loosening some of the tight spots on my neck, and I would recommend his services to anyone looking for an expert massage therapist in a great setting.

Wonderful massage from Tiglat
I'm very happy with the massage I received from Tiglat today. He's friendly, helpful and an excellent practitioner. The ambience is serene and soothing. I will definitely return & have already made my next appointment!

Healing Ki Signature Massage
I had my first massage with Tiglat yesterday and loved it! I found his technique to be above and beyond my expectations. His ability to listen to my body and use multiple modalities to relax my body was what I needed. I have already booked my second massage and am looking forward to it greatly. I wished I live here so I could continue to see Tiglat regularly (we are from Canada, here on vacation).

My daugther treated me to a hot stone massage with Tiglat last week. I have had many massages in my lifetime and this was by far, the best massage I have ever had! Tiglat was very knowledgable, knew exactly where my problem areas were, used only essential oils and special lava rocks that really held the heat. Nice soothing atmosphere, wished I lived closer as I would go back again and again!
November 11, 2010
My massage was excellent. I was so relaxed! I went in with a pinched nerve and Tiglat really focused on the area of my pain. I will definitely be a repeat customer.

Great place for any type of massage
I was very impressed by Tiglat's expertise. I called spur of the moment looking for relief from a twisted ankle, and Tiglat offered to return to the practice to accommodate me after he had already left. The one-hour foot massage I received really helped my pain and expedited the healing process. Now that I have discovered Healing Ki I will definitely make a massage part of my monthly routine. I would recommend this spa to anyone.

Tiglat is the BEST
Wonderful? More like AMAZING: Tiglat's combination massage; I have never had better. A quiet, experienced, educated, professional masseuse. A session so good that I practically forgot my name... and have referred all my friends in the last week.

A Perfect Massage!
I found Healing Ki on this Spa FInder site. After reading all the wonderful reviews, I decided to go there--I was not disappointed! I had the best massage I have ever had and Tiglat was very professional and attentive. I loved the 90 minute healing Ki treatment and the hot stones were great! I highl, highly recommend Tiglat and Healing Ki Spa. Great location, too--steps from Moonlight Beach

Highly recommend this exceptional service.....way beyond my expectations. Not just your ordinary "lie down on the table and rub out the kinks" experience. The massage therapist Tiglat is- as others have noted-a very talented and gifted practioner. He is professional, personable and extremely knowledgable about the workings of the human body. He takes the time to make sure you receive the massage that best fits your needs. I also left feeling completely different...I wouldnt just say relaxed-i would also say balanced. Go see Tiglat at KI-youre in for a treat!!

Amazing 90 minute healing massage
Tiglat Atanous at Healing KI in Encinitas is amazing. He is truly gifted in his ability to provide a healing massage. I had my first 90 minute massage today and left there feeling completely different than when I came in. When you go for so long with tension, tightness and pain you get used to it and you forget what it is like to be tension and pain free. When I left, there was no tension or tightness in my neck...there was nothing...and it was amazing. Tiglat really found the source of my pain and took it away.I have neverhad such a wonderful massage and I can't wait to go back again next month. I would recommend Tiglat of Healing Ki to anyone!

An amazing, relaxing experience!
I came in from out of town and wanted a relaxing and tension relieving massage. The atmosphere was very nice and had a calming sense of surrounding from the moment you walk in. The massage was perfect in terms of being just deep enough and the stones used felt great. I would recommend this spa to anyone in and out of state. Thanks for a great experience!

A friend gave me a gift certificate for a pre or postnatal massage at Healing Ki as a shower gift. Let's just say it's one of the best presents I recieved! I don't usually get massages, so it was a real treat and an amazingly relaxing experience! I left feeling like I was floating, like the stress of these first few weeks of motherhood had just been lifted off my neck and back! Thank you Tiglat!

I Feel Good!!
I just had a massage this morning at Healing Ki with Tiglat. He really listened to me about what I needed and I left feeling really relaxed. The room was very relaxing and inviting and also a Great location in Encinitas. I would highly recommend going to him. Tami R

It is amazing!
I am a new mom of a 7month old. I woke up this morning unable to move my neck to one side or hold my baby! I tried to work through it. However, the pain and inability to be with my son was too much. I called healing ki and I was literally healed. It was one of the best massages I have ever recieved. It was tailored to me and my needs. There was stone work, stretching, and deep tissue work. It was incredible. I left being able to lift my arms over my head and turn my neck both ways. I have already made an appointment for next month. Forget the fancy spas in our area. This massage was better than any I have gotten and it was afforadable.

Best of Many Massages
I have NEVER written a review. I felt compelled after the wonderful experience I had at Healing Xi. Tiglat is a master. I have had MANY massages, and this was the first one I've had where I left feeling as though I had been healed (I have chronic back and neck pain due to stress, dance background, and two recent pregnancies). The environment was peaceful, clean, and he is a true professional. If I could afford it, I would see him as often as possible - he is the consummate masseuse. Thank you Tiglat!

Best Massage Ever!
My husband treated us to a couple's massage for our 5 year anniversary. My husband's masseuse was Sally and he said she was great. He was so relaxed that he fell asleep. My massage with Tiglat was amazing! His technique in working my problem areas melted my stress away. The hot stones used was better than what I have experienced from any other facility. I highly recommend the 90 minute massage. I wish it was even longer. Thanks Tiglat and Sally for making our anniversary so memorable.
April 12, 2010
The best massage I've ever had! The hot stones added extra relaxation and Tiglat really worked on my problem areas. I felt like a new woman when I walked out. All around a great experience!

90 Min of Relaxation
Tiglat has the healing touch. You will walk out of the office feeling healthier and happier. I highly recommend Healing Ki.
February 5, 2010
This was a very wonderful experience...I felt more relaxed in those 90 minutes than I have in a really long time! A wonderful combination of techniques and Tiglat was very personable and talented... I will definitely be back!!

Best massage I have ever had. Walked out feeling I had accomplished something. Thanks Tiglat.
December 16, 2009
I had a wonderful massage at Healing Ki. Tiglat is an excellent massage therapist and knows just how much pressure to apply on the different muscles. We briefly discussed the different muscles bothering me and then he employed a number of different techniques to melt away all the built up stress and tension. I would highly recommend this spa to all of my friends!!

Extraordinary Spa & Service...
We were very happy with our visit to the Healing Ki. The massage and atmosphere were both so relaxing and everything was very unique. I would recommend the Healing Ki to all of my friends and family and we're actually giving a gift certificate to our friend for her bday.

Relief for neck and back problems
I was having a lot of neck and back problems. Aside from being the best massage I've ever received, it helped relieve the problems ongoing. I highly recommend! Very professional. Thank you!!!
September 15, 2009
This was absolutely the best massage I've ever had. Tiglat takes extra care to make sure you leave feeling relaxed. The hot stones are my favorite, which he uses in the Signature massage. He also includes various types of massage to get those especially tight muscles relaxed. I felt like I was walking on air when I left and intend to go back as often as I can. Thank you, Tiglat!

Tiglat was wonderful - he is very calming and puts you at ease immediately. The massage was one of the best I have had - Tiglat is very professional and worked out all my aches and pains. He uses a combination of techniques and is a master of massage. I highly recommend this spa.

I am 27 weeks pregnant and my lower back was killing me. I found Healing Ki through Spa Finder and booked an appointment. Tiglat was wonderful. I felt comfortable the entire time. He prepares the massage table with special 'pregnant lady cushions' which make laying on your sides and back during the massage heavenly. Not only did my lower back feel better, but the baby and I were very relaxed together. I have already booked another appointment and plan to go back the day before my due date to prepare my body and the baby's both physically and mentally!

I've been to some fancy spas for a massage but nothing compares to the Healing Ki. Tiglat is the best at what he does. He makes you feel very comfortable from the moment you walk through the door. I had some back pain from my scoliosis when I got there so I was hoping for some relief. I left there feeling like I could float down the street, I felt soooo good. My muscles were relaxed and I was feeling great. I would recommend this spa to everyone I know! Joyce from Encinitas

Tiglat gives a fabulous massage. I have been to several massage places throughout San Diego and this is one of the best. Aromatherapy and hot stones are great. I have been here twice and will definitely go back. Highly recommended!!!
March 23, 2009
This is the first massage I've gotten in many years, and the first ever from a male masseuse. I was a little nervous but Tiglat was the consumate professional. He explained everything to me and gave me a wonderful 60 minute Healing Ki Signature Massage. I highly recommend this spa.
February 7, 2009
I have to admit, Tiglat was the first male therapist I've had and initially I was a little apprehensive. I think he sensed that and made me feel very comfortable even before reaching the massage table. He was very professional and the Signature Treatment was just what I needed. I plan on going back to Healing Ki on a more frequent basis to help with stress and tension. Thank you Tiglat.

Tiglat, the massage therapist, is absolutely amazing. Not only is he personable, he is the best therapist I've been to. He takes the time out to explain your pains, heals them through massage and energy, and then gives suggestions on how to prevent them in the future. He is very passionate about his work and you can definitely feel it! I recommend him to everyone.

Fantastic Healing Experience
After years of dealing with doctors, chiropractors & therapists for my aches & pains with no results, I had almost given up and was considering medication to cope. But I am so glad that I gave Healing Ki a shot (recommended by my sister) I feel sooooo much better now! From what I found out (I am clueless when it comes to medical / therapy lingo) Tiglat (my awesome masseuse) uses not one but 5 different techniques that he has studies in Japan & US. He personalizes each session to the specific individual and his/her specific needs, that is fantastic. I definitely see AND FEEL the results. Can’t wait for my next session. I highly recommend Healing Ki. Make sure you ask for Tiglat.

From the minute I called and left a phone inquiry about a specific service, I received a call back immediately from Tiglat, the massage therapist. He answered all of my questions and scheduled my first massage. I was looking for a combination of pregnancy massage and reflexology, because I was near the end of my pregnancy and looking for methods to help prepare myself for labor. So far I have had 2 appointments and so far so good. Tiglat personalized my sessions according to what my needs were. He was very professional and personal at the same time, treated me like a person, and not just a client. His techniques were different from other massage therapists I have had in the past. He was very thorough and always checked up on how I was doing throughout the session. He even went beyond the 60 min. The massage room was very professional, sheets were clean and soft, he even had the appropriate pillows and support cushions needed for the pregnant woman's body. you can tell he loves what he does, he has a passion for his profession and helping his clients to feel the healing energy through his massage techniques! After the second session, I had a significant improvement in my sleep especially a decrease in my nighttime pregnancy insomnia. I felt my self more relaxed during the daytime. I recommend Healing Ki and Tiglat to anyone who is pregnant and looking for reflexology and massage to help prepare them for labor! I also recommend it for non-pregnant people, too! It's worth the money, not like other places that reduce your massage time because they have back to back clients with no breaks, or they use the time to set up the room, etc.

Great massage with a personal touch
I visited Healing Ki for the first time today. Tiglat Atanous made me feel very comfortable and performed a great massage. He worked wonders on the areas that were hurting. The hot lava stones felt amazing! The massage pressure was perfect - not to hard or too light. Tiglat is genuinely a nice guy who cares about the health of each client. You will not be disappointed with him.
October 7, 2008
Tiglat is Awesome!!!
Tiglat Atanous @ the Healing Ki is truly one of a kind! His work is not like many! He puts great energy and time into each treatment, and genuinly cares about each client! This isn't your average massage treatment! He defines the art of massage therapy in each treatment he produces! I will come back to him any chance I get! He has done an amazing job with his spa area and gone to extensive efforts to make it very peaceful and soothing! I HIGHLY recommend his work, and I know that anyone who gives him a chance will definitely not be dissappointed!
