If you value a safe, nurturing, non-sexual environment offering an authentic therapeutic massage experience, my work will be of value to you. Whether it's deep relaxation you¹re after, or deep tissue, or exploring the mind/body connection, my responsibility is to meet each of my clients' individual needs.
In 1983, I received my initial 1000 hrs. of intensive training at the Institute of Traditional Medicine in Santa Fe, New Mexico. I¹m trained in Swedish / Esalen, Reflexology, Polarity therapy, and Deep Tissue massage modalities. I have also received additional training in Basic Chinese Medical Principles, Nutrition, and Anatomy and Physiology. I lived in Bellingham, WA where I became licensed in the latter part of 1983 and set up a massage practice. In 1995, after an extended period in Taiwan studying Mandarin Chinese, I moved to San Francisco. I worked as a massage therapist for Club One until 2001. I have continued my education though workshops and seminars, some of which were related to chair massage. In 1997, I founded a successful small business San Francisco Massage Works. We offer chair massage at businesses and events throughout the SF Bay Area.
I keep busy during most days running my chair massage business. However, I do have availability most evenings and weekends. I practice out of my quiet and sunny Mission / Noe Valley Studio, and use hypo-allergenic oil and lotion. Although calling ahead ensures availability, I do I welcome last minute calls. Feel free to give a me call if you are shopping around and would like to know more about my work.
Last minute calls are welcome.
