About

I came to Dessi for a deep tissue massage and her work was amazing. She immediately understood all my tension points and has a thorough knowledge of how the body works and how things connect - she found pain points needing relief that I didn't even know I had. She was also extremely professional and did a full consultation of my walk to understand my specific needs before even starting the massage's time. I highly recommend her services!

About

My name is Sam and I can recommend Lanae’s mobile massage service extremely highly. Lanae has been providing in-home massage to my 3 high-school athlete children (2 girls, 1 boy), my wife and me for the last 3.5 years. I have been getting therapeutic massage on and off for most of my adult life and Lanae is one of the most professional and effective therapists I have met. She has strong and experienced hands that find the tense spots and muscle knots, whether they come from spending too many hours on the computer, bad posture, lack of exercise (my problems) or playing football, baseball, soccer, lacrosse or running track (my kids). After a few sessions, she knows where your problem spots are and works them with different approaches until you get the results you want. She practices deep tissue, pressure point or sports massage for us. She has always been perfectly professional with a solid portable massage table that is comfortable, clean, fresh linens that keep you warm during the massage and for draping, and oils that never leave you feeling greasy. Each of my family members enjoys and looks forward to Lanae’s visits.

About

Rob was everything I could ask for in a massage therapist. He was prompt at returning my call and was able to squeeze me into his schedule last minute, though I would definitely recommend booking ahead. His place is immaculate and extremely relaxing. He gives an extremely thorough massage and I couldn't have asked for a better experience. I would highly recommend Rob to anyone looking for a spa quality massage.

About

Xavier is one of the most hardworking and dedicated trainers I know. I needed help with my Army Physical Fitness Test training, particularly with my two-mile because I had a huge mental block and never broke that barrier or dropped my time no matter what I did. I found out that Xavier had done extensive research prior, and there were many days we went over one hour but he did not charge extra. He is someone I would describe as not after your money but truly cares about helping you reach your goals, no matter the cost and extra burden on him. The special thing about Xavier is really what you are getting in his packages-- it's not just physical training, but a package that addresses all three things: physical, emotional, and mental. With my mental block, he took me to speak to his wife, who was professionally certified. All at no extra cost to me-- it was all on his dime. Why? Because like I said, he cares about the person and his/her goal rather than just making money. When I was injured or on the brink of getting injured, he was able to help me with physical therapy as well (he's a massage therapist) so I didn't even have to go to a doctor for that. (He really knows what he's doing with physical therapy and massage; I actually feel that it's his specialty). It obviously worked because I was somehow able to avoid all those close calls, recover from a strained shoulder and strained hip, and prevent further injury ALL while intensely training at the same time nonstop for the twenty days I had left. We definitely went over just one hour everyday but Xavier never said anything. I know what I was able to achieve earlier, and I had reached my wits' end with making any improvement. Today, saying I reached my goal is an understatement. I completely smashed my goal and broke a mental and physical barrier forever along the way-- by almost 2 minutes. Something I couldn't break by even a minute for NINETEEN years by myself. But only twenty days with Xavier and suddenly I broke it by not just one but TWO minutes in an already short two-mile run? AND somehow got over my greatest fear at the same time? That's what I call a miracle. Got above and beyond for everything else. At times I know I gave Xavier a hard time because sometimes I wouldn't listen to him or argued with him about what was right. But it doesn't matter who was right or wrong at that time because all that matters to me is the end result-- and I succeeded. Thank you Xavier!

About

My massage with Alison was amazing! I'd never had an in-home massage, but it was everything I hoped for and more. Alison showed up on time with all her gear, set up quickly and made me feel totally comfortable, despite the fact that I live in a studio apartment. She came prepped with a great playlist and I was able to tune out for 90 minutes of bliss. Plus, once she was done, I got to relax at home instead of getting in my car or on a bus to brave the world after all that goodness. I couldn't recommend her more!

About

My experiences with Le Mon's Massage Therapy services has always been pleasant. My high demanding and stressful job tend to negatively effect my body. After consulting with my doctor, I began looking for massage therapist. Some therapist did not take the time to investigate or ask about my problematic areas. This has caused me a lot of pain. Le Mon's Message Therapy is convenient and always takes the time to find out what I need. I now only trust them for my massages.

About

Met her for a massage a couple of weeks ago. She immediately put me at ease, her studio was nice and warm (a big plus for me). She gave me a great massage with lots of firm pressure, checking with me to see that the pressure was right. I told her about hot spots and she addressed these. I will repeat visit and have already scheduled my next massage with her. Highly recommended.

About

In a word? Amazing. Intuitive. Healing. Funny. Wise. OK, that was 5 words. I saw Laura for massage and somatic work, but her whole life view includes what is going on in your life and how that shows up in your body. I am deeply allergic to anything too "woo-woo" and Laura was able to get things done for my personal process that were negatively affecting my body. And all the while she was making me laugh with her Chicago-born, Italian, wise-cracking and practical approach. She is really quite the package. If you have pain (physical or emotional), crap you have been avoiding, or just a hitch in your giddyup, get yourself to Laura and get there quick. She will SAVE you money and time by cutting right to the heart of the matter, be it your heart or your hamstring. Or both.

Sharon is great. She's very friendly and her place is very cute and cozy. The massage is amazing! My muscles were super tight but they were so much more relaxed after the session. Price is very affordable. Definitely will come back. Highly recommend her.

Cat @ VastRoot Wellness is truly an exceptional massage therapist. Her practice is conveniently located in Downtown Oakland. The moment you meet her you are greeted with her warm and welcoming smile and her comfortable demeanor puts you at ease immediately. She does a thorough health consult before every session to ensure each session is tailored appropriately. I have worked with several massage therapists but had not been able to find one that I was comfortable with or did the type of massage I was looking for. That all changed after my first session with Cat, when I knew she was the massage therapist for me! Each session I have had with Cat has been outstanding. The amount of pressure is just about perfect for me and I end up so relaxed at times that I forget I’m getting a massage! You can really see how compassionate Cat is about holistic health and wellness. I am looking forward to many years of outstanding massages with Cat. A massage with Cat is a true gift that everyone should experience.

Catherine is a gifted therapist with an exquisite ability to heal, calm and repair. Her technique is clearly a result of disciplined training matched with uncanny intuition — the perfect combination. For years I’ve seen her to; ease chronic back pain, loosen bad spasms, or just balance overworked muscles. Time and again I leave in great shape and always in much improved condition. Zen and calm are the words I would use to describe my state after an hour with her. On top of the muscular benefits, my spirit and psyche do well too as she invites ultimate relaxation and consciousness into every session. Her calming reminders to, “breathe” and “exhale”, are so helpful as they are so easily overlooked in today’s chaotic world. She really helps my mind and body relax and take a break every time I see her. An added plus with Catherine is her knowledge of anatomy and health— I’m always fascinated when she explains that “x” muscle is attached to “y” muscle, hence “z” pressure point will release whatever ails you. Additionally, she provides stretching and light exercise suggestions that always aid muscle recovery. Catherine is a great person with a light hearted sense of humor and the best touch around. Sensitive yet firm, healing and kind all wrapped up into one magical person. What more could one want in a massage therapist?

After my accident and repeated visits to the chiropractor, pain in my shoulder kept coming back. After only several sessions with Tatyana I have nearly full range of motion in my arm, and the the pain has markedly disappeared. I cannot recommend her more highly. I am truly thankful. I look forward toward future visits. Thanks for all the help!

About

Karen is a great massage therapist. She really takes the time to listen to me and my body, and figures out my specific needs. I started going to her over a year ago, and I haven't been to another therapist since. I am an endurance athlete with countless miles under my belt in the water and on the bike. Karen is great at resetting my body after weeks of condition training and abuse. After a few hours with I feel ready for battle. I usually prefer a more intensive, deep massage with some wrenching and wringing, but sometimes I like having a relaxing massage as well. Karen has a different approach for both styles, and everything in between; a one-stop-shop. Thanks Karen!

Gary responded to our request within minutes during the holidays and went out of his way to provide both a sports and Swedish massage in our home. He listened to our pain points and made us feel super comfortable during the massages. He made booking a massage therapist incredibly easy and relaxing. I highly recommend Gary!

Kaylie is a really excellent massage therapist. I've had a few prenatal massages with her and they've been incredibly relieving. She's intuitive and knows how to find your tension areas and apply just the right amount of pressure, which I ask for a lot of. :) I always leave her studio feeling refreshed and lighter - highly recommended, thanks again Kaylie!

About

Let's cultivate wholeness on the planet one touch at a time. As a certified massage practitioner and life-long practitioner of vitality cultivating arts, I offer a unique composition of various energy and body working modalities collectively known as embodied alchemy. Alchemy is the practice and study of transmutation, the metaphorical transmutation of lead/matter into gold/light. Embodied alchemy is the art of internal and personal transmutation and energetic attunement. Implementing qi gong, cranial sacral balancing, vibrational massage therapy and chakral clearing with the more traditional elements of Swedish and therapeutic sports massage, an embodied alchemy session offers you a blissful, grounding and revitalizing experience that honors your body as your most sacred space. Because I believe in working with what I know and have experienced for myself, this work is the synthesis of my experiential practices and inquiry on my own journey towards greater embodied and impassioned being-ness. Each session is uniquely tailored to your specific needs to provide the most effective healing experience possible. This work utilizes your subtle energies in combination with divine and earthly elements to facilitate your healing. This work cultivates a heightened subtle awareness of our selves as embodied beings and invites you to take a more participatory approach to your own healing process. Together, we will unpack and play with your relationship to: 1) your own interiority 2) your body 3) your energetic awareness 4) others as energetic beings 5) your environment Together we will bring more awareness, spaciousness, flow, balance grounding, vitality, and clarity into your daily life!
