Best massage therapy in San Francisco

Usually people seek out massage because they want to change their experience of life in their body.

What changes would you most like to experience in your body?

Best San Francisco massage for pain relief
Relief from pain, soreness, tightness

There are so many ways to feel bad—from headaches to hunched shoulders, neck and carpal tunnel issues from computer work, low back pain and tightness, soreness from the gym or sports, plantar fasciitis, and these are just some of the most common—which means there are so many ways to feel better now!

Best San Francisco massage for stress relief
Less stress and more relaxation

Whether the stress is from work or personal life, stress wears on the body and mind. Sometimes it’s chronic and ongoing, other times it’s intense but limited to a particular life circumstance such as breakup/divorce, grief, or transition.

Best San Francisco massage for alignment and connection
Support for not enough self care

Especially in busy San Francisco many find it difficult to prioritize self-care. Having extra support can make all the difference. There are so many demands on our attention that it can be easy to lose touch with your body. The opportunity is to restore a sense of alignment and feel more connection within yourself.

What others have to say

  • Thanks so much for your help. I have been doing the stretches you recommended and my back has been a world better. I hope I'm out in the Bay Area again soon for another session. The impact was profound!

My massage therapy is a blend of modalities ranging from deep to subtle, including

  • swedish
  • deep tissue
  • zen shiatsu
  • orthopedic massage
  • myofascial release
  • craniosacral therapy, and
  • various forms of energy work.

The thread that weaves them together is a combination of left-brained clinical assessment and intuitive listening to your body with my hands.

The result is a unique style that has lead even experienced bodywork receivers to tell me, “Wow, I’ve never had a massage like that before.” People often say, “I had no idea how much stress was in my body until you started working it out.”

I help people with a range of problems, from low back pain to gym soreness, sports injuries to migraines. This being San Francisco, I work with a lot of desk & computer work-related issues: neck & upper back pain/tightness, carpal tunnel symptoms, hunched shoulders and postural issues.

No matter what’s going on for you, I do my very best to help you get what you need.

When appropriate, I offer stretch recommendations specific for your issues. These stretches are designed to make it easy to maintain the work we do in between sessions. Over a course of sessions the result is a custom stretch program tailored to your body. This is a quick and effective way to stay balanced and aligned and avoid chronic pain and tightness.

Sometimes a person needs more than bodywork to get the changes you want. I also offer coaching and changework to help make the changes not just in your body but in your brain as well.
