One of the best decisions I made in recent times was to hire Suzie. I'd say stop reading and just hire her :) TL;DR. I've been suffering with Plantar Fasciitis in my right foot for about 6 months now. I've tried all kinds of techniques, tricks, stretches etc., that's out there listed on the internet but couldn't find any respite in that. I was just checking Thumbtack and I saw Suzie's answer about a patient getting healed in one session. So, I thought I'll just give it a try. Suzie and I worked out a time suitable for both of us and as soon as I went to the location, I was impressed with the ambience. There was this calming effect to the room with a couple of Himalayan Salt lamps and peaceful music. I spoke about my problem and how I've been struggling with it. I also spoke about an issue with my right knee and that I'm undergoing PT. Suzie spoke about the mind-body connection and how the pain might be the body trying to say something about your current situation. This left a huge impression on me as I was able to relate it to my current situation. Mind you that I don't know her or have met her before this. Also, there was no need for her to talk about this and could've just started the massage. This valuable advice proved that she cares about her patients and wants to see them healed and happy. Now to the massage, I am totally speechless. The pressure was on point; not too high or too low, hit the right spots and by the end of it all, I was able to finally stand with my heel touching the floor. I am telling you this because my heel pain has been that intense and I've been avoiding landing on my heel even when I'm walking. Suzie also suggested stretches to do on a regular basis. It's been 4 days since I've had the massage and I have had considerable decrease in the pain. I will be traveling for work but I'm looking forward to the next session with her.
Jessa is a fine massage therapist, knows the body real well and very attentive to pressure points and comfort level.
I have been receiving massages from Julia for the past eight years, while I was president of the Oakland teachers' union and when I returned to teach fifth grade in Oakland. I worked in an often highly stressful environment, but thanks in part to Julia's nurturing, healing, strong hands I was able to maintain a balance. I quickly learned that massage is not a luxury, it is a welcome necessity, one I always look forward to! Julia is an incredibly warm and compassionate woman, and her intuitive sense of where to focus her healing energy is phenomenal.
I was some what uncertain at first since I was a first time thumbtack user and it was a private studio. I was very pleased with my deep tissue massage. Eric was very knowledgeable and communicated well with me. He knew a variety of techniques and was thorough.
If you haven't tried her yet, then you don't understand how effective she is! Hannah is such a talented Massage Therapist! I have officially found my pain management therapist.
Chris is a great massage therapist with a welcoming studio in Santa Cruz. From start to finish, he assesses your needs and works around what bothers you. I came in sore from my usual running and marathon training and left relaxed and ready to tackle another race. He is easy to text as well and responds back answering all of your questions. I would hire him again!
I received a massage from Arlene at a time where I was under a lot of stress. She not only tended to the knots in my back and overall soreness but also made me feel nourished and fully rejuvenated. I can highly recommend her, it's been a wonderful experience. Thank you so so much!
Such a calm and relaxing experience. I was a little nervous because this was my first massage, but Ben was calm, professional, and informative of any questions I had. He will also ask if there are any areas you prefer and/or is bothering you and any areas you would rather not have massaged, which is a nice plus for problem areas and very considerate. Overall a positive experience and definitely made me feel much more at ease.
I suffer from low back pain; muscle tightness, and stiffness throughout my whole body, with my hips legs and shoulders carrying the worst of it. With my profession a nurse, prior injuries, in addition to my hobbies/passion for snowboarding, hiking, biking and staying active, I believe I need to protect it from further wear and tear. After a painful experience with a prior masseuse, And realizing I'm was not truly feeling any progress/results, I decided to find a quality masseuse. I found Steve/Live Well on yelp and after reading great reviews, I decided to give him a try. There is a positive energy walking into his establishment, plus he gives you warm tea and a foot scrub before your massage. He asked about my medical history, hobbies, injuries, lifestyle and etc. His technique is nothing I've experienced before. While others dig into knots to try and release them, he identifies trigger points to help release knots and tension. Myofascial release, trigger points, are some of the common terms I hear. My last experience, the masseuse dug into a shoulder knot so deep my arm felt numb and I didn't like that. I have less pain, tightness, in my problem areas (shoulders, low back, and hips) after a massage. I usually go about every two weeks and I do 90 minutes because 60 minutes for my body just isn't enough. I have no complaints and have no doubts about the quality of his work, punctuality, and passion for what he does.
Tan Ana was on time, set up quickly and gave a professional massage. Very highly recommended.
George is a great massage therapist. Very knowledgeable and able to pin point problem areas! 5 stars!
I have had the amazing fortune of meeting and working with Chiayueh over the past few months. Her style of massage blended with energy work and other modalities has provided me with the most healing version of any bodywork that I've ever received for my chronic pain. She has an incredible intuition in regards to what my body needs during a session. She is sometimes gentle and sometimes goes deeper into my muscles, but I always leave feeling alive, healthy, energized but also calm, and without pain. I really can't recommend her enough to anyone suffering from chronic illness or pain. Schedule an appointment with her and have your body be completely transformed.
Natalia is a top-notch professional. She is a highly skilled and experienced masseuse who arrives on-time, in a positive mood, and fully stocked with a clean table and supplies. Most importantly -- her treatments are an interaction rather than a delivery -- she dynamically adapts treatments to responses from the patient. I played competitive sports for over 30 years and accumulated injuries on top of injuries -- Natalia's treatments have changed my life!
DeVere is darling and gentle. He is communicative and works so well with the body. He totally has firm hands for when needed too. My friend and I had the best experience ever! We were relaxed and rejuvinated. Can't wait to receive his service again. I highly recommend DeVere to anyone that's looking for a good massage.
Ms. Franco has been doing therapeutic body work on me for many years and clearly is my therapist of choice. The biggest reasons I choose to have her work on me are that she is very caring and is aware of my body's needs through her delightful sensitivity and intuition. She seems to sense when and where to apply additional focus. She is expert in many massage disciplines. I have undergone several surgeries, including total knee replacement and open heart surgery. Her caring hands have worked on me for at least 8 years. I look forward to the next time/.
