Therapeutic Deep Tissue Massage

Obliterate your nagging aches and pains with this highly therapeutic 90-minute session.

An extremely therapeutic massage session that involves a keen eye for connections within the body to assess and address areas of restriction and their underlying causes. 


I use pin-pointed deep tissue techniques combined with gentle stretches to open areas of restriction, restoring mobility and ease. Combining deep massage styles with some more traditional relaxing techniques allows the body to open and receive the high-level body work completely. 

Experience whole-system restoration that delivers efficient relief to the areas that need it most as I apply advanced massage techniques to work out tight spots. I’ll tailor my approach to suit your individual needs and preferences to offer you delicious, total-body relaxation. 

This therapeutic bodywork offering is perfect for athletes, weekend warriors, individuals experiencing ongoing pain, and anyone looking to up their self-care.

Calming CBD Massage

Effective whole-system relaxation with the anti-inflammatory benefits of organic CBD.

Take your massage to the next level by adding a topical CBD treatment. Experience profound relief from pain and inflammation, as well as deep stress relief, anxiety reduction, and a heightened sense of well-being. 

The cannabinoids in CBD help fight inflammation on a systemic level while working with the body’s neurotransmitters to ease nerve pain and anxiety issues. This means you can enjoy all of the physical and emotional benefits of this powerful medicine without feeling intoxicated or out of it. 

I use a certified organic full-spectrum CBD oil from Lazarus Naturals to deliver incredibly effective relief to sore muscles, aching joints, arthritis, and other chronic or acute causes of physical pain.

Calming CBD oil makes an excellent complement to the relaxing effects of a therapeutic massage or any of my other massage offerings. Read more about CBD massage here

Fascia Massage with Cupping

Find meaningful relief from muscle pain, restrictions, and adhesions with targeted myofascial release.

 

While massage is focused on relieving tension and strain from the body as a whole, myofascial release works specifically with your body’s fascia—the tough collagen membranes that surround and connect muscles.

Cupping is a highly-targeted solution to help release trigger points and break up myofascial adhesions. Not only do massage cups help facilitate incredible pain relief, but they also restore range of motion, increase blood flow, and promote cellular regeneration.

Vacuum cups are used to create a sustained passive stretch of the fascia and soft tissue. With the Fascia Massage with Cupping, cups are naturally woven into your therapeutic massage session. 

As an add-on to any of my massage offerings, cupping is an excellent way to facilitate an even more profound level of relief. Upon request, massage cups can be incorporated into your session. Learn more about myofascial cupping here.

Head, Neck & Shoulder Massage

Goal-specific bodywork for tech neck, headaches, and painful stiffness in the neck and shoulders.

No Bay Area massage menu would be complete without a little something special for tech neck. This neck & shoulder massage is perfect for people who spend their days looking at screens, leading to a stiff, painful neck, aching shoulders, and pounding headaches. 

Helps address deep patterns of holding and tension often associated with work-related stress. Combining gentle stretching with deep tissue techniques, my massage for shoulder & neck pain delivers on-the-spot relief exactly where it’s most needed. 

This offering can be targeted to focus on massage for migraines and tension headaches. Using neck & head massage techniques, I help restore blood flow, improve circulation, and provide gentle cervical stretching and decompression.
 
Ideal for people who spend a lot of time on computers, those experiencing migraines or tension headaches, and anyone with whiplash or stiff neck.

Nervous System Soothing Massage

Reset your whole system with a soothing touch to help you shift out of reactivity and into calm.


The Nervous System Soothing Massage is designed to work with the body and mind to calm, pacify, and deeply nourish. 

When the nervous system is functioning optimally, it monitors and maintains the harmony of the whole being. But when activated—because of world news or a difficult personal relationship—the delicate system can fall out of balance.

This calming touch massage is grounded in evidence-based approaches to holistic wellbeing. It can help:

  • Calm overactive stimulus responses between sensory organs and the brain.

  • Discharge endorphins to regulate mood and reduce pain.   

  • Invite a deep sense of ease by relieving symptoms of anxiety and depression.

  • Reduce joint pain by releasing nerve compression.

  • Restore balance to your whole being so you can feel grounded and safe.


During the session, I use long, slow strokes with extended holds to facilitate a deep sense of inner peace and safety. Come in with a weary nervous system and leave in a state of heightened ease and relaxation.
