75min massage: $150

90min massage: $180

What kind of pressure can I expect to receive?

I work in the medium-firm range, though it is dependent on what the tissue is presenting and

ultimately, what the client wants. Clients I have worked with regularly note that they appreciate

my ability to get into the tissue, but not go so deep that it’s uncomfortable.

What Modalities do I use most?

I spent the last two years honing my skills in Sports Medicine clinics in Phoenix AZ. I primarily

use Sports/Clinical Deep Tissue and Myofascial Release techniques with cupping and assisted

stretching as needed.

What got you into bodywork?

My fascination for anatomy originally came from drawing as a kid and strength training in

adolescence, learning about what muscles do what movement. Eventually, I was drawn to

massage school in a search of a career where I could help people. While in massage school, I

came to realize anatomy and kinesiology were my passion. In recent years, I have had the

fortune of working with athletes of many sports and activities, from Iron Man, Martial Arts,

CrossFit, Bodybuilding, Ninja Warrior to weekend warriors as well as desk marathoners and

parents who are working to improve posture and decrease physical discomfort.

What other elements do you bring into your bodywork?

I have a calm demeanor and enjoy getting to know my clients as much as I enjoy helping them

feel physically better in their body. I’ve dabbled in many kinds of physical activity including

Boxing/Muay Thai, yoga, trail running, HIIT classes and experimented a lot with mobility and

stretching techniques I’ve learned from coaches, trainers, PTs and Chiropractors over the years.

"Working with Zachariah Brown has been wonderful. From the beginning, his welcoming demeanor and attentive approach showcased his understanding of the unique needs of his clients. As a musician and knitter, I have struggled with repetitive motion issues. Zachariah works well with my tension and knots with precision and care. What truly sets him apart is his dedication to holistic healing. Not only does he provide an exceptional massage, but he follows up each session with personalized stretches and exercises to support ongoing healing and prevent future issues. I’ve worked with many massage therapists in the past, and Zachariah Brown is definitely a standout in the field, combining professionalism, expertise, and genuine care for his clients' well-being. I wholeheartedly recommend Zachariah to anyone seeking a skilled and compassionate massage therapist, especially those in the music industry or a field that is hard on the body."

What kind of pressure can I expect to receive? 

You can expect firm, moderate, and light pressure all depending on your needs at that time and the needs of the muscles. Through breath and communication, we will work together to discover the best pressure for you!

 

What modalities do you use the most?

My tools are adapted to whatever is the most beneficial for the patient that day. The tools I use the most are: Neuromuscular therapy, Trigger point therapy, Myofascial release, deep tissue, Swedish.  

 

What got you into massage therapy? 

It started with massaging my great grandmother. Witnessing how much relief and difference I could help create in her hundred year old body, filled my spirit. That special time of connecting with her muscles and breath inspired me on the path of helping others with pain and dysfunction.    

 

What other elements of your life do you bring to your therapy?

From yoga, I have deep roots that ground me and make my patients feel safe and grounded. From meditation, I have the quietness to listen. From dance, I learned rhythm which creates the flow of every session and the importance of breath. Lastly I draw from art, to approach challenges with creativity and curiosity.

120min massage: $200

What kind of pressure can I expect to receive?

My average range is medium to deep. The pressure depends on the person's general preference and the goals that we set together for the session. I like to work with communication, intention and focus to create a healing and relaxing experience.

 

What modalities do you use the most?

My styles include Myofascial Release, Deep Tissue, Trigger Point Therapy and assisted stretching. I customize each of my sessions by combining different styles to meet each person's needs.

 

What got you into bodywork?

I have been an athlete, dancer and physical theatre performer all my life. Over the years, I have sustained many injuries in my shoulders, wrists and legs. Massage therapy was the most helpful element in my recovery. It helped me to rehabilitate and return to practices that I love. I'm grateful for the impact massage has had on my life, and I feel passionate about collaborating with people to feel better in their bodies.

What other elements of your life do you bring to your bodywork? 

I am a musician, athlete,  farmer and a very curious person. I bring to my practice my capacity for listening, physical groundedness and nurturing support. I strive to create an atmosphere of harmony and attunement to hold people in their healing processes..  

"Juan Carlos has a calm, grounded energy that supports me in fully relaxing into the benefits of the bodywork he provides. In our sessions, my nervous system feels able to receive and release the tensions my body is holding on to which has not always been the case with other therapists I have received massage from. I am really grateful for the quality of his presence and attention. 

Juan Carlos creates a warm, caring and professional atmosphere. I feel listened to and able to communicate what I am feeling or need from the session. At the same time, he is also very intuitive and skilled when it comes to finding the underlying sources of the aches, pains or movement restrictions that I am not able to pinpoint myself. He has done incredible work on releasing the stubborn constellation of knots that used to permanently reside in my upper back between my shoulder blades, as well as relieving tension in my low back among other things. I highly recommend him!"

 

O.T 

What kind of pressure can I expect to receive?

My pressure is usually between medium and firm. In areas that require deeper work, I prefer to allow time and breath to provide depth, rather than compressive force. In such areas, I target a breathable “hurts good” amount of pressure, finding a happy medium that soothes my clients but does not cause guarding. Pressure during my sessions is further informed by client preference, intent of our chosen modality, and breath.

What modalities do you use the most?

My style includes myofascial release, deep tissue, trigger point therapy, and assisted stretching all tied together by my training in Swedish and Shiatsu.

 

What got you into bodywork?

After graduating from UC Santa Cruz with the intention to develop sustainability plans for local businesses, I found that the work I had trained to do brought me little joy. I wanted to work with people and their ability to live a full life. Recovering from my past injuries first exposed me to the intricacies of human movement and anatomy. I initially chose massage therapy as a stepping stone to study physical therapy, but through my education I discovered just how powerful massage can be, and now pursue it full time. 

 

What other elements of your life do you bring to your bodywork?

I have been an active, body-aware person my whole life. From gymnastics as a child to mountain biking, rock climbing, trail running and yoga as an adult, I pepper my sessions with a love of movement and respect for the remarkable complexities of the human body. Aligning breath, movement and intention is a great joy and a potent therapeutic combination. As a practitioner, I pull heavily from my personal connection to breath and movement as a source of grounding energy.

"

“Sam is an incredible bodyworker; in our first session he was able to get into tight spots in my back that no one had been able to touch for years. He really creates a safe and comfortable space where you can express exactly what you need. He genuinely listens & communicates, and was able to meet me exactly where I was at each individual time. Seeing Sam has honestly been life-changing for me in terms of chronic pain, as well as being able to relax and trust a practitioner with my body. Would recommend wholeheartedly.”

What kind of pressure can I expect to receive?

The pressure I work with is typically medium to firm. Although ultimately the client has the last say in what pressure they want me to use.

What modalities do you use the most?

I use a combination of deep tissue, Swedish, sport massage and acupressure within most of my massages. I also do prenatal massage and Myofascial release.

 

What got you into bodywork?

I was born with scoliosis, which created challenges for my height and it brought chronic back pain as a young kid. I knew I wasn’t the only one and I was lucky that my case was not serve, but I knew I wanted to aide people in not feeling the same pain as I do. I found National Holistic Institution and within their neuromuscular program I found a great way to help treat people, and connect with them through therapeutic touch.

 

What other elements of your life do you bring to your bodywork?

I love being outdoors, so if not at work I am usually outside taking hikes with my dog. Being out in nature helps keep me grounded in life and helps me listen to clients. Both in what they tell me with their words as well as listening to what their body is telling me they need. 

"Karla was wonderful. She applied just the right pressure, and would remind me that I can let her know to change it at any time. She asked me ahead of time for areas to focus on, and she definitely works on those spots well. She also found areas I forgot to mention to work on. And I'm so glad she did. She was kind and understanding. Overall, amazing massage. I feel like I can breath better, turn my neck better, and move better. Will return for a massage by her again!

- Hannah

My pressure ranges from medium, firm to deep tissue. Pressure applied during sessions are informed by client’s preference and connection to breath.

I practice Myofascial Release, Deep Tissue, Lomi Lomi,  Trigger Point Therapy and Prenatal massage. Sessions are tailored to clients goals. My style as a bodyworker is focused on attunement and client collaboration to support relieving chronic pain patterns. In sessions, I work together with clients to connect them to a greater sense of ease, relief, and freedom in their bodies. 

 

What got you into bodywork?

I discovered bodywork while I was living in Hawaii in 2017 and got trained in trauma-informed somatic bodywork to offer safe, therapeutic touch. I was called to this work as a QTBIPOC identifying person to hold space for folks of varied identities and lived experiences. 

 

What other elements of your life do you bring to your bodywork?

I’m an artist, dancer, deep listener, and earth tender. My passion to provide support for others in their bodies is informed by practices that restore, nurture, and connect me to feeling more peace and freedom for myself and the folks I hold space for on my table. 

"Kiara is my massage therapist and I am always blown away by their massage techniques, abilities to help me feel safe and comfortable, and overall their kindness and knowledge of moving around the body. I always feel relief and full of positive energy after each session. I’m deeply grateful to have met her and would highly recommend booking with them. Thank you Kiara, I’m deeply grateful for all you do for me in these sessions."

What kind of pressure can I expect to receive?

My pressure ranges from medium to deep, but is entirely determined by the wants and needs of whoever is on my table. I enjoy doing firm bodywork with intentional strokes that move through the soft tissues without threat. 

What modalities do you use the most?

I practice Myofascial, Trigger Point Therapy, Deep Tissue, Swedish, and Neuromuscular Therapy, and my bodywork often expresses itself as a blend of all of these techniques.

 

What got you into bodywork?

As a lifelong anatomy nerd, my curiosities eventually led me to massage. I began practicing massage in 2013 to satiate my curiosities, and found my own personal peace in helping people around me understand their bodies.

 

What other elements of your life do you bring to your bodywork?

I'm an avid reader and a gardener. Reading books, tending to plants, and practicing massage all require the same grounding and attentiveness. Whether it be with my eyes, ears, or hands, the ability to listen & observe are the best tools in my practice.

"This was my first time with Arielle. But she treated my body as if she had known me a long time. That’s not an easy task, being a seasoned massage receiver, I’ve had my fair share of questionable sessions. Arielle was incredibly present and her touch reflected that. I am looking forward to my next session with her."

What kind of pressure can I expect to receive?

The level of pressure I work in entirely depends on the clients’ preference. That said, I tend to work around medium to medium-light pressure. Ultimately I want the client to feel relaxed and safe.

What modalities do you use the most?

I use a combination of deep tissue, Swedish, myofascial release, trigger point and acupressure in my practice.

What got you into bodywork?

In my previous career, full time computer work led to chronic neck stiffness and shoulder pain. I discovered that self-care was essential in affecting postural and repetitive stress injuries for the better. This led me down a path to bodywork during a time that I was re-evaluating my career in advertising. During my schooling at McKinnon Body Therapy Center, I had never felt better when receiving (and giving) bodywork on a regular weekly basis. Regular bodywork can do wonders for the body and mind.

What other elements of your life do you bring to your bodywork?

love being in the outdoors and do everything I can to bring that peace that I feel to my daily life. I hope to bring a calming presence in my work as a massage therapist. 

"I was referred to Chiaty when I had muscle strain from playing tennis and her bodywork made it possible to continue playing! I've been seeing her regularly since. She is incredibly sensitive to what my body needs at every appointment, and is very strong and deeply intuitive in her approach. Highly recommend!"

What kind of pressure can I expect to receive?

I always adapt my range of pressure to the clients requests and needs. However I most often work with moderate to deep pressure.

What modalities do you use the most?

My sessions are based on deep tissue and Myofascial Release, but I also bring into the session my knowledge of Feldenkrais, Acupressure, stretching and Cranio-sacral.

 

What got you into bodywork?

My passion for helping and healing brought me to bodywork. In my thirties I went through several years of pain in the right side of my upper body that ended in developing frozen shoulder. That experience of healing taught me a lot and took my practice at a higher level. I have been practicing bodywork for more than 20 years, but I still approach every session with the same curiosity and hunger to help. My clinical approach is based on observing the misalignments of the client's body and "listening" to the tissues.

What other elements of your life do you bring to your bodywork?

I am known among family as friends as being a good listener. The listening of what the client is telling me, the observation of asymmetries and the "listening" of their tissues is what helps me to determine the best therapeutic approach for the client.

"I highly value Fernando's work. His work is very professional yet sensitive. He can work in a variety of styles, from deep tissue to a lighter more sensitive touch. He is thorough, taking care to include all facets of his customers healing needs. I highly recommend his work!"

-E.N.

What kind of pressure can I expect to receive?

My pressure ranges from medium to deep, but is entirely determined by what my client wants and what their body needs. I like my sessions to be intentional and I focus on making sure my client is safe and relaxed.

What modalities do you use the most?

I practice deep tissue, swedish, myofascial release,  trigger point therapy and cupping. My sessions use a combination of all of these depending on what my client asks for.

What got you into bodywork?

My relationship with health and healing began with observing and tending to my own family's chronic health conditions. This led me to questions and genuine curiosity about the physical, emotional, and mental aspects of ourselves and the way in which we can use different healing modalities to ease pain and discomfort and move towards more ease, balance and awareness.

What other elements of your life do you bring to your bodywork?

I have always been an active person, and nature is my happy place! I also practice Capoeira, which is an Afro Brazilian martial art that combines dance, music, and culture and is a beautiful example of the African diaspora and the struggle against oppression. “Finding your flow” is often expressed in this art, so like bodywork, I appreciate meeting clients where they are at by working together to find the flow to their own healing journey.

"Rachel did a phenomenal job listening and feeling what my body needed to relieve my neck, hip, and back ache due to sitting for work 8 hours a day. I had a lot of tension and after my 90 min session mixed with massage and cupping, I felt so much better. My body is less tense and the pain relief is surreal. Thank you, Rachel!"

What kind of pressure can I expect to receive?

Adapting to each body, I work within a range from light to moderate pressure. The level is determined by a client's preference, the intention for the session and their body's response. 

 

What modalities do you use the most?

My sessions normally involve a mix of Eastern and Western modalities such as: deep tissue, myofacial release, Swedish, acupressure, and craniosacral. I see them as maps (systems/meridians) that I trust because they have had an effect on my own body. I include the same modalities in prenatal massage sessions.  

My bodywork style seems to resonate more deeply with people who are:

- experiencing high levels of anxiety/stress.

- working with somatic therapies.

- are pregnant or post birth.  

 

What got you into bodywork?

Receiving bodywork helped me navigate physically and emotionally challenging situations at different times in my life, including foot surgery, anxiety and bereavement. My journey into this practice began in 2017, in Chiang Mai, Thailand, where I studied Traditional Thai Massage. After some detours, I completed my certification in Oakland, California in 2021. Through my practice, I wish to offer the type of support from which I greatly benefited. 

 

What other elements of your life do you bring to your bodywork?

Running and yoga help me cultivate body and breath awareness, movement, aliveness, sense of discovery. 

I am a continuing beginner in my yoga practice and enjoy sharing with my clients all that I'm learning about encouraging a sense of spaciousness in the body.

""When I get a massage from Yolanda, I know my body will surrender safely to her intentional bodywork. Her personality is friendly and radiant, and her energy is gentle. I really appreciate how she checks at the start of every session so that we can decide together what to focus on. She ensures that I'm totally comfortable before we start. I like that she updates me with what she's doing next and why, if it's noteworthy. Sessions with her are healing, calming and grounding—it's nice to have a healing moment after a stressful week. This is an important part of self-care."

What kind of pressure can I expect to receive?

I typically work between the range of medium to firm pressure. I like to stay away from a level of pressure that a client would consider painful or a level where a client feels guarded. Regardless of the level of pressure, I want my clients to feel relaxed as much as possible. If a client is working through an injury or some type of chronic pain there can be some discomfort but I always want to make sure my clients feel safe and relaxed.

What modalities do you use the most?

I use a combination of deep tissue, myofascial release, trigger point, cupping, kinesiology tape, and Swedish. 

What got you into bodywork?

I got into body work due to my own path of relieving chronic low back pain that was hindering me from many of my favorite activities. After trying many modalities, I found deep tissue massage by far the most relieving.

What other elements of your life do you bring to your bodywork?

I also work as personal trainer and have been very active my adult life. I like to bring my knowledge of strength and flexibility training to my clients in order to find long lasting relief.  

"Diana did an awesome job. She has a wealth of knowledge about bodies and muscles. My back which has been tight and slightly tweeked for the last several weeks feels a ton better! I will definitely be visiting again."

What kind of pressure can I expect to receive?

I typically work between the range of medium to firm pressure. Sometimes sessions call for very firm pressure, but I stay in clear communication with my client to make sure we don't get to a level of pressure that a client would consider painful or where a client feels guarded. 

What modalities do you use the most?

Most of my sessions use a combination of Deep Tissue, Swedish, Sports massage, and a variety of techniques I have developed over the years in my private practice.

What got you into bodywork?

My previous career was as a professional baseball player for the Seattle Mariners, which was cut short by a shoulder injury. From that experience I understand the disappointment and despair that can take over when you can't physically do the things you love to do. The healing of that shoulder injury lead me down a path to recovery, and while it was too late to save my baseball career it did inspire me to become a massage therapist. While I work with many injuries and troublesome joints, that is why I specialize in shoulders.

 

What is your philosophy when working with clients?

No two people are the same, and so no two sessions should be the same. Every session is an opportunity to learn about how your body and its patterns are put together. I focus on discovering the root of the discomfort and how to unwind it.

"I went to Strategic Bodywork on a couple friend's recommendations of the amazing work Haley had done for them, specifically  and especially around healing work with stress/tightness/athletic injuries/ etc. Haley was thoughtful, listened to everything I wanted to share and gave me an amazing experience. I felt really comfortabl, taken care of, and much better (sports injuries and work-related tightness in my hips and shoulders) after the appointment. Very grateful that I got the recommendation."
