Our property management requires our carpet to be cleaned upon leaving. Cesar was awesome! Very friendly, on time and thorough. Our carpets look and smell great. Highly recommend hiring him for any cleaning services. His pricing is great as well! More...

We have been using Cesar's company for many years. He is honest, reliable, prompt, courteous and does a beautiful job. He manages to make our house with many second story windows and lots of older carpets look sparkling new every time. I cannot recommend him highly enough. More...

We have used Cesar's Cleaning for cleaning our newly built home as well as cleaning a home we had rented after the tenants moved out. Additionally, we use Cesar's to clean our windows and screens throughout the year. Their employees are always extremely courteous. Their attention to detail when it comes to cleaning is outstanding. I would highly recommend Cesar's Cleaning for any cleaning needs you may have with your home. They are reasonably priced and worth every penny. More...

We have used Cesar for years to clean our windows, carpets, couch and arm chairs. He always does amazing work. We have two little kids and when he is done with our couch, it looks brand new. When he does windows, he cleans all the tracks, screens and frames. We love having him come for a spring cleaning. More...

My wife and I have used Cesar's Cleaning Service for a few years and have been completely satisfied with their service.  They have cleaned our windows, inside and out, so that they sparkle.  On our roof, we have skylights and solar panels, and they have cleaned these, too.  It is always easy for us to connect with Cesar Pacheco, as he is very responsive. We are happy to recommend his cleaning services!! More...

I originally hired Cesar and crew to clean the windows on our new home on which they did an amazing job!  Then I found out they did post construction (premove-in) cleanup and also area rugs.  I was able to have our entire house cleaned in addition to a couple of rugs for a very reasonable price.  I still stare in amazement at our clean windows which had construction dirt build-up, a winters worth of leaves and spider webs and multiple manufacturers stickers plastered all over.  His company hand wiped down each frame, vacuumed out the tracks, removed the stickers and scrubbed the glass.  What a difference! They were prompt, courteous and very thorough.  I highly recommend this company for most of your cleaning needs. More...

I tried acupuncture for the first time EVER with Craig recently, and he made the experience extremely comfortable and informative. He answered all of my questions and provided me with some insight on my eating habits and personal health situation and how acupuncture can help with that. I wasn't sure what to expect from the treatment, but about an hour after I left, I felt an overwhelming calmness and relief of stress-which was truly priceless. I will most DEFINITELY be back for another sessions! More...

Good place, however their massage sucks and I felt that I  wasted my time. Massage dehydrates and didn't help my recovery at all. Also they play weird classic music during massage, should've just played one of the asmr playlist from YouTube cause that classic music didnt help at all. People are nice but service that I am getting is kinda expensive and low quality. More...

I recently got Restalyne filler from Peggy Humphries in my lips and nasolabial folds (smile lines). It was my first time, and I love the results. I would highly recommend Peggy!She was kind and reassuring and really knows her stuff. We spent most of the appointment discussing what to expect, and making sure we were on the same page with what I wanted. She was very informative of the different kind of treatment options and different fillers. I was very concerned with my lips looking too "done" and she explained exactly what she was going to do and how it would look when it was healed.She was so gentle that the injections didn't hurt at all. She's very slow and careful. Before I went in, I read up online what to expect when getting fillers, and I was mentally prepared to leave with bruising on my face that would last for several days. I was so overjoyed when I had NO bruising! I talked to someone else that had filler from her, and she didn't have bruising either! I cannot stress the importance of getting filler from a good practitioner, it makes all the difference!I was a bit swollen right after, and she gave me post-care instructions. I iced my lips a bit when I got home, slept on my back with an extra pillow, and avoided exercise and heat for 24 hours. The swelling went down in about three days. I am so happy with the results! It looks really natural. I look overall younger and fresher and more well-rested, but not in a way where you can tell something was done.I will definitely be going back to Peggy for regular upkeep.

Santa Cruz CORE has helped me in so many ways! Their expert massage therapists and chiropractors have helped address my hip and shoulder pain, even when part of it stemmed for more complex issues. I started seeing an acupuncturist regularly to help calm my anxiety. And on top of it all, I’ve reached my fitness goals thanks to their awesome group classes and rad trainers. As a local family business, Santa Cruz CORE is vested in our wellbeing. More...

I HIGHLY recommend Dr. Rhodes Walton, who is a chiropractor here. I came in with debilitating sciatica pain. Unlike my last chiropractor in Arizona ( who is also wonderful ), Dr. Walton did not adjust my neck and he still made my sciatica pain go away! I am frightened of the neck "cracking" and Dr. Walton didn't go there. He pushes down really hard on various muscles in the legs and abdomen and BOOM! no more pain. I had about a 70% pain reduction after the first session and after one month and 4 sessions, and almost 100% pain free - no more hobbling out of bed and taking ibuprofen and icing my back. My last chiropractor in Arizona had me coming in 3 days a week ( although I was much worse back then ) but Dr. Walton told me I didn't need to come in constantly. He told me the goal is to see him once a month and I certainly will.  His sessions are very quick. He is also personable, pleasant, super smart and a very nice man.  If you are suffering from sciatica, Dr. Walton will make that horrible pain go away like magic. More...

I currently work out 4-5 days a week on my own but have experienced a plateau in my progress. I met with Beau, one of their corrective exercise specialists and trainers, to learn more about how I could improve my routines. He made sure he understood what I was coming in for and the goals I was hoping to achieve and created a realistic timeline and took me through an entire workout. In body weight exercises alone, he opened my eyes to how I could better focus on engaging my muscles to achieve better form during my workouts. In the end I walked out with a multi-step plan that I can work on my own and all my measurements so that when I check in with him the following time, there is an accurate baseline to compare to. I feel more confident and knowledgeable now that I did prior and am excited to follow the progress!! More...

I called on a Saturday and a real person answered the phone. I was pleasantly surprised because who actually answers their business phones anymore? Well Santa Cruz Core does. The receptionist who I believe was in their Santa Cruz office kindly and knowledgeably answered my questions and gave me information I didn't even think to ask. I was able to schedule a deep tissue massage with Zoila at the Watsonville location on Penny Lane for the following Monday. The massage was excellent. I've been a massage therapist for 14 years and II was thrilled with the quality of this massage. During the check in Zoila asked me questions about my body and she addressed every area I mentioned. It was truly a deep tissue massage. And it was exactly what my aching body needed. I'm already booked again with Zoila for next week. The day after my massage I got a call from Santa Cruz Core checking in about how I was feeling after my massage. Quality employees and a lovely local place for a great massage. I highly recommend the business and my new massage therapist Zoila. More...

I just want to say I love core! From the front desk to the trainers everyone is so welcoming and nice! Came in to try their personal training and got the best workout of my life! It wasn't just about pushing my limits like other trainers, Carlos made sure every movement was pushing me to better form, balance and not injuring myself. Moves I've been doing forever with other trainers, I realized I was doing wrong, setting me up for injury and not even getting the most out of the training session. I also started going to their chiropractor and the more affordable core45 classes and love them! The classes are like personal training with a few other people. Sometimes you get lucky and it's just you or one other person. I love that there's so many options under one roof and they always give me great deals to try something new. Next is massage! More...

I have been coming to Core for 10 months now and have wanted to leave a 10  rating since my first visit. Everyone and everything they offer here at Core is phenomenal. The office staff are impeccable and their customer service is to be applauded. The trainers, chiropractors, massage therapists (Juan A. Is the cream of the crop) and acupuncturists are all top notch. I have worked with many in each area and overly satisfied is an understatement. They make a point to know you by name, all communicate about your progress and each support you toward meeting your goals. You can tell the owners set high standards and expectations for their business and I can see why it is so successful. I can't say enough about the training and therapy that I receive here; I have met and exceeded each of my goals due to the personnel here at Core....everyone goes the extra mile More...

Nicole is an absolutely amazing massage therapist! Listed as an intern, she has a huge amount of experience from her work in Italy, wonderfully strong hands and very pleasant manner. She has an incredible technique different from what is taught in CA which has a great effect on sore muscles. I'm looking forward to my next massage with her.
Gui is the trainer who teaches the semi private training workouts I usually attend. He is the BEST! He has a great personality, is highly knowledgeable and does a fantastic job keeping me fit. I love going to his classes, which often fill up because his classes make you sweat while having fun. He mixes things up so your muscles are always challenged and he knows how to push you to do your best. I also love his taste in Brazilian music!
