I am a California Massage Therapy Council (CAMTC) licensed practitioner with more than 29 years of experience providing soft tissue mobilization, myofascial release, orthopedic, deep tissue, and pre/post natal massage. I acquired my first manual therapy certifications in 1992, and have consistently focused my practice toward evidence based protocols that offer reliable results. Over my long career, I’ve worked within an outpatient orthopedic and sports physical therapy clinic, a dynamic Pacific Heights yoga studio, and in San Francisco’s technology sector, where I was on staff with Twitter in their @FitterTwitter health and wellness program. Numerous educators have helped me refine my practice, including Tom Meyers, Carol Orborne, John Barnes, and the late John Uppledger.
My technique is largely corrective in emphasis; my goal is to work with your unique needs to rehabilitate soft-tissue injuries and dysfunction. Many of my clients are seeking a mix of relaxing therapies such as Swedish massage blended with more specific modalities to address problem areas. My broad skillset paired with almost three decades in practice helps me work with you via various hands-on methods to achieve your wellness goals.
I currently offer therapeutic massage in San Francisco at my office on West Portal Avenue. While I rarely have short notice availability, I do my best to find appointments for people who are injured or in pain. To schedule, please text or call me at the phone number below. I am slowest to respond to email, but will typically reply within 24 hours.
I am fully vaccinated against COVID19 via the Moderna vaccine. In order to manage my exposure risk, I am limiting my practice to fully vaccinated persons.
