The Clinic

Located in the thriving Lake Merritt district of Oakland, Strategic Bodywork has been relieving clients of aches and pains since 2010. We are on the second floor of a building dedicated to health and wellness.


Our Philosophy

Many people have had the experience of a "nice" massage that made them feel better in the moment, but the next day it feels as though nothing has changed. The solution to a lasting effect is understanding where muscular disfuction and pain originates, and working with the problem, not just the symptoms. One of the guiding principles behind Strategic Bodywork, is that we design a custom treatment plan with you, not just a routine that tends to work on general problems.

Covid Procedures

We take the safety of our clients and staff seriously. Currently the following policies are in place to protect everyone:

- Therapists will wear masks at all times

- HEPA filters are running in every massage room

- There is thorough sanitation between each client

- Current Alameda County guidelines are that all clients must wear masks indoors regardless of vaccination status.
