Work Out the Kinks at Puerto Vallarta's OTFM-TC

December 11, 2015

Puerto Vallarta, Mexico - Need to work out the kinks? We've "got your back" with the Old Town Farmers Market-Tianguis Cultural's very own US-certified massage therapist, Sal Trujillo Denova of The Spa By Sal and Wellness Center.

Get to Know Sal

For 15 years, Sal has been soothing the aches and pains of guests from all over the world. His experience training includes the Alpha Institute School of Massage (Port St. Lucie Florida) and the Universidad Autonoma de Chapingo (Mexico City, D.F.)

Sal has worked in some of the most well-known resorts in the Banderas Bay area: St. Regis, Hotel des Artistes, Mantamar Beach Club and Garza Blanca Preserve, Resort and Spa. Today, Sal takes care of Old Town Farmers' Market goers with on-site massage treatments.

Treat-Your-Body Benefits

Massage offers powerful emotional and physical benefits that will help you feel better - both long- and short-term. Treat yourself to the following love-your-body benefits:

• Boosts energy • Alleviates back pain • Reduces carpal tunnel symptoms • Lowers blood pressure • Enhances the immune system • Increases circulation • Relieves headache and migraine pain • Reduces stress, anxiety and depression • Improves flexibility • Releases endorphins and enhances mood

On-Site Massages

This Saturday, indulge in one of Sal's rejuvenating 15- or 30-minute massages: • Foot massage • Deep tissue massage • Therapeutic massage • Shiatsu

Make a Massage Appointment

If you would like a more personalized massage, you are welcome to visit Sal's studio at Francisca Rodriguez 156-B or make a private home or room service appointment (+52 322-121-8193, thespabysal(at) or Facebook.) There you can receive the full treatment, including facials, body wraps, exfoliations, aroma therapy as well as Alphabiotic Alignment and Medical Biomagnetism.

Alphabiotic Alignment is a 30-second approach to the alignment of the body, mind and spirit forces. As a result, the brain is synchronized, reducing stress and releasing muscular tension. Medical Biomagnetism is a non-invasive therapy known for preventing and treating chronic illnesses, degenerative health issues and numerous diseases. It uses a magnet to balance positive and negative cellular charges in the body's cells.

No matter what service you select at The Spa By Sal and Wellness Center, you will be invigorated and ready to soak up all the festivity that awaits at the OTFM-TC.

Love yoga? Every Saturday for the rest of the season, join us for yoga classes in the kiosk (9:30-10:30 am) taught by instructors from Yoga Colectivo. Participation is by donation.
