    Good masseuse, but horrible, sticky butter oil which made the massage less pleasant. It detracted from an otherwise great massage.

    Sorry to hear that the shea butter didn't work well for you. It's the healthiest and least slippery way to access the tissue effectively. Perhaps we should have used less. Thank you for your feedback!

    I moved to SF two years ago, and been looking for a good deep tissue massage since then, almost in a monthly basis. I exercise daily and have back pain issues maybe because I work in front of a computer long hours. She really knows the body and how is connected in a muscular but also in a neural level. I was skeptical at the beginning so I booked an hour massage and for the first time in two years I wanted more. The benefits of her technique on my body lasted for almost a week. It is a great investment so I will do it weekly. I highly recommend her. She is very professional.

About this pro

SPORTS MASSAGE DEEP TISSUE MASSAGE MEDICAL MASSAGE APPLIED NEURO-KINESIOLOGY ACTIVE RELEASE RECHNIQUES My work addresses the core of the issue applying deep tissue, active release, neuro-kinesiology and human movement. It rests on over 1600 hours of technical education and understanding how the body operates as a system. I address both structural and medical challenges and clients are amazed how approaching the nervous system in its own language produces instant changes. I am convinced that an effective, results-oriented look at the body is one that sees Nature’s tensegrity genius in the system. Relaxation massage has its own therapeutic benefits and is always an option. My moto is "STRUCTURE and FUNCTION as Nature intended… simply HONORED…" I am truly in conversation with NATURE. Every session is UNIQUE because our needs are different from person to person and from week to week, and that is what sets the tone of a session. The intelligence of the body never fails to amaze. So much medical INTERVENTION can be spared simply by tapping into the self-healing ability of the human body.

    Q & A

    • What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?
      Pricing is on my website - always CONSISTENT for 60 minutes and additional increments of an hour.
    • What is your typical process for working with a new customer?
      The objectives and SYMPTOMS of a client for each session drive the kind of work that we do and the technique we use. Before your session you will receive an email confirmation for your appointment and a reminder 24 hours prior. To approach your body in an informed way, I will ask about background to your injury and symptoms and whether you have had surgeries or broken bones. For clinical work, we spend ~20min before our session discussing HISTORY of INJURIES and medical interventions, as well as ASSESSING MOVEMENT.
    • What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?
      I have extensive training in ANATOMY, HUMAN MOVEMENT and NEUROLOGY through course work in neuro-kinesiology, active release techniques, human gait and human developmental positions. One of the best teachers is my own body - I use for my own maintenance the same approach my clients experience.
