[06/30/15]   Hi folks,
I'll be on vacation from mid-July through most of August. Have a wonderful summer, and see you when I'm back!

[12/29/13]   Hey, weren't you going to get more massages in 2013? There's still time!

[04/21/13]   Away through Wednesday. I'll massage you when I get home from Seattle!

[04/01/13]   Filing your taxes can be so stressful. Reward yourself for getting them done with a massage! I have openings in April -- be kind to yourself and book one now.

[03/03/13]   Hi massage lovers, I have exciting news: I'm working one less day a week downtown, which means I've got one more day free to give you a massage! Tuesdays are now massage days. Book a Tuesday with me in March and get $25 off -- such a deal!

Massages at Spas Like Bliss and Mandarin Oriental Go Extreme

OK, most of this seems a little crazy, but I *have* been playing Led Zeppelin for massages by special request for some time. What music do you want to be massaged to? If I have it, I'll play it.

nytimes.com At several spas, the standard sedate massage is being accessorized with rock music, colored lights, vibrating tables, and other extreme bells and whistles.


Stop Chasing Pain

good one!

What drives muscle tightness? Tightness in and of itself is not the problem. It is a signal of an underlying problem. It's the red flashing warning light on your dashboard that refuses to go away. What is behind it? Usually you will find muscle tightness is a by-product of inefficient movement patterns where muscles unnecessarily have to compensate or work overtime to help you achieve the objective. It's not about pushing harder, exercising longer or lifting more. Move smarter. Move better. Then you can perform great. Get mobility and then lock it in with stability.

[12/12/11]   what to get that hard-to-shop-for person in your life? a massage gift certificate, of course! happy holidays.

Plaid Friday - November 25th

In honor of Plaid Friday -- an effort to support local, independent businesses during the holiday season -- I'll give 20% off any massage that weekend if you wear plaid...then take it off for the massage, of course...

General information

I am a certified massage therapist working out of my home studio in Baja Noe Valley, San Francisco. I completed the Therapeutic Swedish Massage certification at San Francisco School of Massage in 2009 and their Deep Tissue course in 2010, and am continuing my education. I believe massage is one of the best things you can do for yourself -- its benefits range from quieting the mind and relaxing to working out serious knots and kinks; from improving circulation and flexibility to balancing one's energy. As an avid cyclist, swimmer, and yoga practitioner, I am especially attuned to the kinds of attention our bodies might need when we overdo it on the bike, in the pool, or on the mat. I've been there. That said, I offer massage to men and women of all ages and body types. I tailor every session to your own specific wants and needs. I also offer discounts for referrals and students. My home studio is quiet, comfortable, warm, and clean. Parking is available, though I'm very near to a lot of public transit....or you can bring your bike inside. And I play pretty cool music.
