Thank you for considering my assistance in attaining your health and wellness goals. I look forward to meeting you!
I was living in SF during 2008-2009 and was playing tennis 2-3 times a week. At some point I experienced some annoying muscle pain in my arm, shoulder and back. I decided to try massage therapy and Dena was thetherapist. Dena was great, a true expert and very comfortable to be around. After a very thorough treatment session, I was able to get back into action in about 2 days (as Dena predicted and explained upfront). I would recommend her without hesitation, she is a pro and a wonderful person.

I’m a caring, thoughtful and experienced Massage Therapist, who has been massaging family, friends, and pets since I was 6 years old.

Additional service offerings not described below are:
Himalayan Salt Scrub
Nilotica Shea Butter application with dry brush exfoliation
is a safe and very effective hands-on technique that involves applying gentle sustained pressure into the Myofascial connective tissue restrictions to eliminate pain and restore motion.
The goal is to release fascial adhesions to restore movement and relaxation to the muscle tissue. It is an excellent addition to Craniosacral balancing for treatment of migraines and TMJ.
Vibrational Healing Massage
can be used in conjunction with other alternative therapies. It feels like Acupressure, Bowen Therapy, Table Thai & Reiki combined to release & move various types of energy. Bodies are meant to stay in motion.
This is a clothing on, no oil or lotion service.
Vibrational Healing Massage Therapy (VHMT) is a bodywork therapy designed to restore one to fluidity. It is like massage therapy, providing touch techniques and distinctions that help people live in their bodies as a liquid process, freeing pain as we have known it.
VHMT works with the physical structure to free up past tensions and stresses that have been held in the body. This reawakening of the nervous system restores circulation to injured areas, moves energy and emotions, and helps in the release of chronic pain or stiffness.
can help with migraines, anxiety, PTSD, post-natal pain, restore cranial mobility and release restrictions of the nerves, thereby soothing pain and both emotional and physical stress. It is well paired and used in conjunction with Bowen Therapy, Vibrational Healing & Lymphatic massage.
This is a clothing on, no oil or lotion service.
After a single session, you’ll start to feel changes to your body, mind and energy levels. Craniosacral therapy "is a form of bodywork or alternative therapy focused primarily on the concept of 'primary respiration' and regulating the flow of cerebrospinal fluid by using therapeutic touch to manipulate the synarthrodial joints of the cranium. To do this, a practitioner will apply light touches to a patient's skull, face, spine and pelvis."
Lymphatic Massage & Lymphatic contouring massage
is a deeply relaxing and detoxifying modality. It helps relieve excess fluid, essentially pushing the metabolic wastes towards the filtering system (lymph nodes), which in turn strengthens the immune system. It also soothes the nervous system, which is excellent for someone who is anxious or in need of detox assistance. A focused, targeted session (Lymphatic Contouring) may aid in the reduction of cellulite and reduce the appearance of localized swelling. Contact me for a consultation.
This can be used in conjunction with other alternative therapies such as Craniosacral balancing or Prenatal massage.
