T L Spa & Wellness was born out of the love between mother and daughter. While Tyrla and her sister were growing up, Linda put herself through school as a single mom. She started her own practice, and Tyrla always looked up to Linda’s strong work ethic and the relationships she had with her clients. Tyrla considering her a healer in many ways. When she was old enough, Tyrla attended esthetician school with the goal of one day opening a spa with her mother.
That dream became a reality with the opening of T L Spa & Wellness on March 1, 2006. Now Linda and Tyrla work together to help women look and feel beautiful, healthy and vibrant.
Because of their relationship, every client at T L Spa & Wellness is truly like family. Through their many years of experience, Linda and Tyrla have been through life’s good and bad with their clients and have celebrated many big milestones. Their heart and soul goes into everything they do.
Linda McCray, L.Ac., HHP
Hi, I’m Linda McCray. I have been practicing Acupuncture and Therapeutic Massage for 36 years. I earned my Holistic Health Practitioner certification from the Institute of Psycho-Structural Balancing (IPSB) in 1987. From there, I went directly into Pacific College of Oriental Medicine, in San Diego, and completed the Master’s Program in 1991.
Unlike traditional acupuncture treatments I am in the room with my patients during the entire treatment. I love to customize my Acupuncture treatments with advanced modalities such as therapeutic massage, Electro-stimulation, cupping, body gua sha and moxa. By combining these powerful, healing modalities I am able to tap into the body’s innate ability to heal its self. I specialize in treating musculo-skeletal problems from trauma or repetitive injury, pain, anxiety and internal disorders. I work with my patients lifestyle and dietary needs to promote better health.
I love nature and am passionate about the environment and animal rights. When I’m not at the spa, I spend my time volunteering with the San Diego Zoo, spend time working in my garden and being out in nature.
