After a very successful session with Dessi, I definitely recommend her to anybody dealing with a chronic issue in their body that normal massage or PT has not been able to solve. She combines both a vast amount of knowledge of functional anatomy with amazing skill in figuring out where the issue is and how to resolve it. As a massage therapist myself, I've had work from dozens of people, and I can confidently say that Dessi is by far one of the best. Thank you, Dessi!!
I feel so blessed for having found Lanae! Shes always able to accommodate my crazy schedule. Lanae is a perfectionist. She would not let me off the table unless shes untied all the knots in my muscles. And she only uses organic, fragrance free massage gel, which is non-greasy and incredibly soothing for my sensitive skin. Lanaes techniques are very unique, which is both therapeutic and relaxing. I must mention that Lanae has the softest hands I have ever touched. These come from years of soaking in the massage gel. This little fact alone shows that she is a seasoned, professional therapist. And lastly I must say, for the rate she is charging, the service she provides is such a bargain. Flexible scheduling, awesome service and fair pricing what more can one ask for?!
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!
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!
My experience with Bill was great. I requested a more intense treatment tailored to my physical fitness routine and Bill was able to deliver exactly that: He focused on my weak-spots, used massage balls effectively to target thigh areas, and gave gentle advise on posture. Surely will book a few more sessions with Bill.
she knew how to work around my broken arm to give me a full body massage- with specific wotk on my tightest areas-leaving me feeling very free of pain and tightness. she was on time, very professional and also gave me helpful advice. nothing to improve. i will work with her again
I have been seeing Juan for the last 5 years. I'm an avid runner and believe in the healing power of massage. I've gone to Juan for all kinds of running related aches and pains, along with tension from stress. Juan is great about personalizing each session, not just for me but also for my needs that day. He gives me tips on how to work certain muscle groups on my own and is always willing to try a different technique if something is not working for me.
I wish I could give Laura more than five stars! Let me start by saying that I am a healer by trade, where I work as a somatic therapist. I consider myself a good judge of whether someone seems to have an embodied practice and understanding of the mind/body(/spirit) connection in their work. I started seeing Laura to manage stress from a very busy life, and to support my continued healing and growth. I am so glad I found her, because I have experienced continued and lasting healing and transformation on what feels like a molecular level, just through meeting with her regularly and opening myself to her in the process of the work she does. I initially thought she was going to offer massage with some aspects of counseling thrown into the mix. What I found, however, was a much more skilled and comprehensive, integration of many types of body work, spiritual work, and psychological work than I have ever experienced with any healer. Make no mistake, I expected she would be as good as the great body-workers I have visited before, but what she offers is even better to me, and so much more complex. There really is NO ONE out there who is doing this work the way she is, and she is extremely gifted. I recommend you make an appointment with her soon. It is very likely you won't regret it. P.S. Keep in mind, that as with any healing process, it goes as deeply as the person being treated is willing to go. If you just want to be mindless and tuned out for a massage, I am sure Laura could give you that if you requested, but you will be missing out if this is what you choose. The work Laura does borders on magical when you are nteractive and authentic with her, so that she is able to assist you in traveling to places deep inside, for the purpose of you experiencing how to change and transform them yourself. If you won't let her in, you will still benefit from what she does, but maybe not as much as you could if you did.
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.
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!
Dillon was very professional and was interested in why I needed a massage. He relaxed muscles that I didn't even know were tense. I felt so much better leaving than I did when I walked into his office. I highly recommend him.
I have been in private practice for over 18 years, serving over ten thousand clients within the San Francisco Bay Area. I hold five certifications in the more advanced massage techniques. My work integrates these modalities to address your specific needs. Every session includes a free evaluation, and follow up call. You are more than just another customer when you enter the wellness center, you are a personal client, who I will attend to with my combined years of experience and knowledge from both my physical therapy and advanced bodywork training. Seeing you as well is my goal.

Hands on the move. We have an available mobile service, prices vary depending on how far you live from my office. I offer Swedish, shiatsu, deep tissue, MFT, salt scrubs, sports massage, relaxation, pre-natal, and pediatrics. All sessions and packages can be changed to fit your needs. All massages can be used for relaxation, stress management, increased energy, over all sense of well-being, increased range of motion, increased flexibility, helps with posture, digestion, and stimulating nerve activity. It can help you recover faster from an injury, surgery, and a hard work out. Swedish: There are 5 strokes that are used for getting you used to my touch, helps increase circulation, helps with digestion, stimulates nerve activity, toning muscles, increased range of motion, relaxation, and decreased stress. On the table you are unclothed to your comfort level, but best if completely undressed. Lotion or oils are used to help make moving over skin and muscle easier. Rates: - 70 min session = $60 - 100 min session = $80 Packages: - Four 70 min sessions = $200 - Four 100 min sessions = $270 Shiatsu There are a variety of techniques used for this massage. Using percussion, softening, stretches, and acupressure which follows meridians that have acupressure points, some helping with back pain and headaches. You get an overall relaxation, decreased stress, increased sense of well-being, increased energy, and helps with different aches and pains. I use a table if you are shy about being unclothed, this is the ideal work for you, because you are completely clothed, it also gives you time to become comfortable in my presence. Rates: - 70 min session = $60 - 100 min session = $80 Packages: - Four 70 min sessions = $200 - Four 100 min sessions = $270 Deep Tissue Massage For a good Deep Tissue massage, the sessions are a bit longer and you must have a proper warm up time of your muscle tissue. I use a good thick creme that is designed for Deep Tissue massage, it makes it easier to work the muscle tissue. Unclothed is ideal and can be just the area I work with. You get an increased range of motion, over all well-being, relaxation, and increased circulation. If you ask for this work, it is recommended that you drink a lot of water before and the massage. The water helps flush the toxins the Deep Tissue releases from the muscle tissue, the toxins are caused by tension and adhesions from scar tissue. Rates: - 80 min session = $69 - 100 min session = $89 Packages: - Four 80 min sessions = $236 - Four 100 min sessions = $296 Myo-fascial Therapy MFT is a deeper more advanced work and requires even more time than a Deep Tissue massage. It requires knowledge of the muscle connections and muscle tissue fiber direction. It also requires an assessment and reassessment so that you and I can both see the results of the massage. Unclothed is ideal or it can just be the area I'm work on. I use the same creme as the Deep Tissue massage. Water is also suggested before and after massage. You get an increased range of motion, better posture, and increased flexibility. Rates: - 90 min session = $79 - 120 min session = $99 Packages: - Four 90 min sessions = $276 - Four 120 min sessions = $336 Sports Massage Deep Tissue, Swedish, and Shiatsu can be used, but it all depends on when you are next performing, when you last performed, and if you are dealing with an injury, or recovery from surgery. Rates: - 50 min session = $45 - 70 min session = $65 Packages: - Four 50 min sessions = $140 - Four 70 min sessions = $210 Salt Scrubs This is a wonderful service to experience. During the massage, I use a fine to medium salt mixed with lotion and warm water, it is used on one area of the body at a time and then rinsed with warm water and then massaged down with lotion. This is a very relaxing, with a good dose of over all well-being. Higher rate is due to extra supplies needed to do this work. Rates: - 60 min session = $60 Packages: - Four 60 min sessions = $220 Prenatal Massage Swedish and Shiatsu can be used. The time is shorter, being able to lay on the right side for only 20 min.
