About this pro

How does your service stand out?

My work is genuine; I follow the needs of my clients, educate them, and give them possibilities of how they can be in a better place in their body. I am a forever-learner and will always seek new ways to help my clients. My numerous experiences with trail running events at the finish-line, providing post-race sports massage from 100M to a 5K, and all over Northern California, makes me unique. And, on the other hand, I work in a spa environment as a Massage Therapist, providing Swedish, deep tissue, and Mu-Xing Therapy bamboo massage.

What do you enjoy about the work you do?

I have the opportunity to help people be in a better place in their mind/body, get them out of pain, whether it’s a potential or post-injury, or just for general health maintenance. I cannot diagnose, but I can give you my opinion based on my experience and observation.

    For my wife's birthday, we rented a house and invited some friends to join us. Diane came to the house, on time, with a positive attitude and stayed all day, delivering 6 massages (!), with only short breaks in between. Everyone was happy and felt great after she'd done her magic.

    Great, relaxing experience!
    I booked Diane for 3 massages at our vacation house for my fiancée's 40th birthday. Diane was so easy to book, very professional, flexible and quick to reply to several questions I had. Very enjoyable experience, great recommendations for some specific back pain I had, and she got ALL the knots out! We HIGHLY recommend booking Diane!

    Claimed to have a prior commitment days after she accepted. I canceled
    Diane J. Jun 16, 2016

    Hi Sylvia, I very recently took on a weekly Tuesday and Thursday 2-hour commitment that I had not translated to my July calendar yet. I am very busy right now, and I am so sorry for the miscommunication. It was not my intention to mislead you in any way, and I am certainly not dishonest with my time or service. Please reconsider my service. Sincerely, Diane

    Diane is an exceptional massage therapist, she is knowledgeable, kind, positive, patient, and has a deep understanding of the body and how to alleviate pain and bring relaxation. She is trustworthy, easy to talk to, and listens with a compassionate heart. I'm so grateful for her and her skilled services as they have made huge difference for my son, who suffers from severe tendinosis. She is amazing!

    Massage was the service we found on Thumbtack. It was very comfortable and soothing. Diane came to our house and massaged both me and my husband. She is very professional and experienced. I have many health issues so she wanted to know before starting the massage. I feel she is reponsponible, does not over change, has package rates, she is also likable and easy to warm up to. Me and my husband feel terrific! We will have her back regularly! I highly recommend her! Thank you!!

    Diane was awesome! She was super flexible regarding timing and location and more importantly, she did an amazing job. A group of us rented a house in wine country and I hired Diane to come out and give massages to a few members of the group. We all loved her! I highly recommend Diane.

    Diane was very good- prompt, professional, friendly and seemed to be a skilled massage therapist. I definitely felt a relaxation of body tension after her massage, which has lasted. My daughter also had a wonderful massage and enjoyed the experience.

    My hubby and I LOVED Diane. She traveled to us and gave the best massage. A perfect beginning to our date night. Looking forward to hiring her again.

    Diane was great. My husband and I both got 90 minute massages that were perfectly tailored do our specific requests. She was professional and accommodating as well on time and super nice. I'd book her every day if I could!

    Diane is WONDERFUL!!! Not only did she give us all first class massages, but she was also extremely professional and timely. My family came to Napa (from Atlanta) for a long weekend and had some free time; Diane came to the house we are renting on Atlas Peak and worked on four of us. We would all highly recommend her!

    Excellent massage! Great technique and very professional. I prefer deep tissue and Diane assessed the level of pressure throughout the massage. Will definitely use her again.

    Diane was fantastic! She was arrived exactly when she said she would and was professional throughout. She did a great job of understanding what my wife and I both wanted out of our massages, and then delivered exactly what we were looking for. I often ask for deep-tissue / sports therapy massage and find them a bit too weak, but Diane's was really great -- strong and therapeutic -- and left me feeling more limber. I would have no hesitations recommending Diane to anyone.

    I have been experiencing back and hip pains for several weeks and it has limited me from doing my favorite activities including running. Diane arrived on time and was very professional throughout the massage. She took the time to work on areas that were causing the most pain. I would reccomend her to anyone especially if you have a sports related injury.

Q&A

What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?
This year, I learned about Mu-Xing Therapy Bamboo Massage, and although I never thought I would use tools as part of my practice, I absolutely knew I wanted to learn this technique when I learned about it, as wooden tools bring a special energy and have been used for thousands of years all over the world in different cultures. Using heated bamboo and rosewood tools of various sizes and shapes, I can perform a deeper tissue massage and help clients with ischemic tissue, and provide this unique treatment to many health issues.
How did you get started doing this type of work?
I entered a massage therapy program in 2001 just for fun and as an interest of mine, around health and the human body. Fast forward, after having several injuries myself and learning that our bodies can heal themselves if we allow them to, and taking the time to learn what it is to get our bodies back to homeostasis, we are truly benefiting our bodies, ourselves in the long run.
