This was a gift for my son, a first time experience for him. George lived up to his billing and my son left feeling euphoric. Thank You.Jan 26, 2017Verified
I am glad that when I searched George came up through Thumbtack. He worked with me, was attentive to my needs. His studio was calming and quite relaxing. He is awesome to work with and no doubt worth the expense. I look forward to scheduling again with him.Aug 10, 2015Verified
George really pays attention on all levels to assist me in my path to health/wholeness, both physically, and energetically. He has a definite calling for the practice of healing in this life, which he considers sacred. I am feeling energized, and more focused on what is truly important since working with George.Feb 12, 2015Verified
It was a true blessing to have found George on thumbtack. He carefully listened and documented my chronic pain challenges, then applied his skillful techniques which resulted in one of the most relaxing therapeutic massage sessions I ever had. I look forward to continuing my sessions with George as he is a true compassionate professional, with the skills and knowledge that bring deep relaxation and comfort. I highly recommend George for all your therapeutic needs.May 22, 2015Verified

- What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?I charge $100 for a 1 hour massage and $130 for an hour and a half. I do not charge for dressing or undressing time or for consultation time. Your time begins when I place my hands on you and begin working on you. This way you are only paying for the actual time spent receiving your massage.
- What is your typical process for working with a new customer?I use a questionnaire to help me quickly focus in on the needs, issues and past problems that are relevant to why the client is seeking a massage at this time (I.e., if due to recent injury or illness; if needing relief from pain, increasing circulation, or simply seeking relaxation and more restful sleep). The questionnaire also alerts me to past injuries like broken bones, or whiplash injuries or medications being taken (like blood thinners for example) that would cause me to modify my depth of pressure or specific modalities that I would use with the individual. After making the appointment, I call and remind the client the day before to ensure that they remember their appointment day/time and to reassure them that I have them on my calendar. As I begin working on them I explain a little of my philosophy about doing bodywork; about how important communication is to the healing process, about no matter how well trained I am, or how expert I have become at doing bodywork, they remain the expert when it comes to their body and how much pressure or which strategies or modalities they want employed when working on them.
- What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?For my initial training and certification, I attended the Alive and Well Institute of Conscious Bodywork. I then pursued advanced training and certification in Deep Tissue, Thai, Pregnancy massage, Pressure Point Therapy, Lymphatic Drainage, Reflexology, and Level 2 Reiki (energy work).. These advanced trainings took the better part of 10 years. In 2018 I received another 119 hours of advanced trainings in connection with receiving my State if California certification as a massage therapist. I also received certification as a Reiki Master in 2018.
