Jennifer was amazing. I was so relaxed and felt so great after my 90 minute massage with her! I have been to many massage therapists in SF and she was one of the best. I will definitely be back to see her again!

Dessi's individual approach is extremely effective - especially for those of us who have problems with pain. She spends a significant amount of time evaluating the source of the pain (oftentimes beyond the limit of the scheduled appointment), which in turn proves very beneficial during the procedure as she applies diverse suitable techniques in order to resolve the issues. Dessi is very knowledgeable and skillful in her craft and is at the top of my list of massage therapists, so I will definitely continue using her services in the future.

Sam is a knowledgeable and skilled massage therapist. She knows anatomy thoroughly and this shows in the results that her bodywork yields. Sam helped me immensely with my sciatica, releasing areas that i didn't even know were tight or implicated in my back pain. The results were tangible and I am very grateful.

Before using Lawrence, I had never booked an in-home massage therapist before. Now, I want to use him regularly! Lawrence was punctual (even early!), kind, and gave an excellent deep tissue massage. He genuinely cared about my health and the after-effects of the massage, following up the next day to check on soreness / general sentiment. He even has a customer loyalty program! I've already recommended him to a friend and I'd encourage you to use him if you like a casual in-home setting (with a nice guy) for your massages.

Rob is a fantastic massage therapist. He is very professional, easy-going and his skills make all of my pain gone! During our session, Rob kept tracking my feeling and adjusted the power as I wish. I had little massage experience before so Rob is very patient and teach me many things about how to relax, deep breathe and some tips about how to keep healthy. I am so excited to find Rob and cannot wait for our next appointment. Anyone especially the beginner, who wants to try massage or take it as regular thing, Rob is definitely your choice!

It was a last minute job and thank goodness she responded. 3 clients back to back and she was great across the board. Plus my husband is a rock and needs strong hands. Amazing therapy massage. She knows what she is doing, equivalent to going to a medical spa massage. Strong knowledge, better than if I went in to a spa. Bring the spa to you! Plus her prices is hard to beat, so so reasonable.

Super relaxing massage! She also had a heated massage table, which I didn't end up using since I didn't need it, but I've never had a massage therapist offer that before, so it seemed pretty special :) Highly recommend.

Xavier is an amazing personal trainer and massage therapist. I have been working out with him 3 times a week for several months and he has helped me transform my body. I'm much more fit with greater strength, vastly improved flexibility and improved posture. Xavier has a deep understanding of anatomy and biomechanics, so he can identify specific weaknesses and imbalances in your body and structure a training program to fix them. He is a stickler for form and will make sure you are performing exercises properly. This is critical for proper results and also very important to avoid injuries. The best part about Xavier is his infectiously positive attitude and flexible approach. He is always positive and upbeat and knows how to modify workouts if you are having an off day. And he can work with all ages. He trained my parents (72 and 74) when they were in town and created an age appropriate workout for them. And they loved it! I recommend Xavier for anyone looking for a personal trainer or massage therapist!

I booked a private massage session with Dan after I met him at our office Health Day. He is well worth it. Good, firm, intuitive hands. I work out at the gym regularly so I get sore. Add in the office and keyboard stress and its time for a massage. He is one of the better massage therapists I've experienced, and I've had my share. Well priced and high quality.

Anatoly understands the body better than most massage therapists. His session is not a "fluff and buff," but a truly therapeutic massage that brings relief from pain and dysfunction. He's a gifted practitioner. I highly recommend multiple sessions.

I am delighted to leave a 5 star review for Teliah! Not only did she come to my hotel at what is a normally a pretty inconvenient time for massage therapists, but she proved to be such a wonderful masseuse. She has a gentle personality and is very client-oriented, and obviously in the business to truly help others. She’s a real gem! I felt very blessed to find her. I definitely benefited physically from her therapeutic techniques, and I fully believe others will, too.

Alex's bodywork/massage is unreal. He'll ruin your ability to go to other massage therapists, so be prepared to raise your standards really, really high. I really had no idea that a massage could do to me what he does, but he really is able to go there, to coach you through pain, emotional and physical. He's got such a presence, such a warmth about him, you'll basically want to pay to see him just to hang with him. I had a ton of back pain and wrist pain before coming to see him, I literally thought I had arthritis. Doctors told me I would need surgery. Turns out I just needed Alex, haha! I've probably received from Alex over 20 times, and each time is better than the one before. He's so present and attentive to what he's doing, I can't honestly imagine how he does it for upwards of 2 hours straight. I will be going to Alex forever, he's the best!

Such a warm, knowledgable therapist. Easy location. Great experience. Told her about my neck and back and she paid just enough extra attention while applying just the right pressure. I get the impression she could go much harder if I needed/asked, but what she chose was perfect. She checked in just enough to make me feel attended to, but not distracted from a great massage. Highly recommend.

Nathaniel is a great massage therapist that not only knows massage but multiple modalities of bodywork. He performed deep tissue, trigger point therapy, and myofacial release on my body. After one session my body immedietly had more Range Of Motion. As a personal trainer for fitness 19 i even started referring my clients to Nathaniel for their bodywork. Most massage therapists are either too soft or aggresive but Nathaniel knows the sweet spot for each individual. If your looking for a good massage therapist Nathaniel is your guy.- Raymond Sunga

I had been dealing with knots in my upper back for the longest time and couldn't seem to fix it with my foam roller. The massage I received from Ben Lim was very relaxing and I felt a tremendous amount of relief in my upper back muscles! Very detailed oriented so my body felt great all round after the massage. Loved his attention to technique with the draping of the sheets and blanket and how he used it to add in stretches during the massage. He takes into account full consideration of your level of comfort through out the massage by checking in and asking about levels of pressure and if there are any areas of your body he should avoid or if there are any areas he should add more focus on. Not the biggest fan of my feet getting touched so It's great to know that he is a massage therapist who follows morals and ethical boundaries. Doesn't stop there, he's also a certified NASM personal trainer and also does correctional work with his senior clients so he was able to create a personal plan for me so that I know what muscle groups I need to strengthen and what stretches I should be doing. I would highly suggest to anyone that is finding complications with knots, sore areas, or stress levels to call up Ben Lim for his personalized massages!

Le Mon is a GREAT massage therapist and a genuinely good person. I met Le Mon when I was a client at Massage Envy in Foster City. I have seen several therapists, but he is by far the best therapist there for my needs. I have a lot of problems that need deep tissue work, and he does not disappoint. He is one of the few people there who knows how to apply deep pressure without causing additional injury (bruises). He also has a great work ethic, so it comes as no surprise that he was promoted to lead therapist in a short time. He listens to what you say, and will always work on the areas that need extra attention. And even if you think you're doing OK, he will still manage to find the aches and sore muscles that you didn't even know you had! Aside from being a great massage therapist, he is also very professional, punctual and trustworthy. And most important, he is a really good person with a good heart and good soul. I would not hesitate to recommend him to anyone. In fact, you are lucky to book his services! I recently moved away, and wish I could find someone like him here! You will not be disappointed.

Samveda is not just another massage therapist - she is a skilled bodyworker with rare qualities of attunement and presence. When she walked in the door I already felt like I could start to relax. She was very caring and attentive to my needs. She showed up on time, with a super calm demeanor. She is confident but humble, and was more interested in what I actually needed than following her own agenda or some routine, which really helped me to feel met and supported. I love it that she is already highly experienced but also is continuing her education through advanced workshops and trainings, and has a curiosity and beginners mind. I could tell that she had a sincere interest in providing a great massage as well as supporting me to be at ease in my own body.

Hire skilled professionals for absolutely everything.
