"Dena Shulruff CMT"


"I've gone to Dena many times over the last 10 years, and she has given me many of the best massages I've ever had. She's very in tune with what my body needs each time. Whether I come in for relaxation or for injuries, she provides the perfect blend of therapeutic & soothing. Thank you Dena! I highly recommend you to everyone!" -Neil Dana, co-founder of Go Pro Cameras.


"Yesterday was my first time ever receiving any kind of therapy because I simply do not like to be touched, but I have to say Dena made the whole experience palatable and I am grateful to have received it. I have never felt so relaxed in my entire life. I am a stage 3 cancer patient who recently underwent a bone marrow transplant. She was extremely accommodating to my specific special needs and I couldn't be happier with the experience. Thank you Dena!"

-Mike Freitas.


"I'm a working, wife and mother of 4 kids.... so visiting Dena is a treat.  She came to me, and gave me a wonderful 90 minute massage. It was an incredible massage! Before I even had to point out the trouble areas, just by her touch she knew exactly where I was carrying my tension and stress.  Our massage session was deeply therapeutic! I was also impressed that she made such a wonderful massage oil and massage balm to use too.  Dena is a truly gifted massage therapist! You will be thrilled to spend a session with her! I give her my highest recommendation." -Katie Gossel, doTERRA.


"I've been getting deep tissue massage for several years now and thought I would never say this again. but.  Dena gives the best deep tissue massage I have ever had.  Dena asks all of the right questions to get to the source of your trouble spots and has a great way of intuitively bringing it all together.
Thank you Dena!!" -Travis Becker, Electrical Contractor.


"Of all the massages I received in my lifetime, none have been as intuitive and healing as those I have received from Dena Shulruff. Her technique is a loving fusion of a gentle caress and a deep intensive working of all my hidden kinks and damaged parts. She creates a soothing ambiance in any setting with her warm presence and small, thoughtful decor. For me, her massage goes beyond relaxing and becomes a time of reflection and meditation. She is worth every cent she charges... and more." -Jacqi T.


"Dena's massage is intuitive, thorough, and deliciously relaxing." -A. Starr, 2008.


"I have been receiving massages from Dena since 2006. As a practicing massage therapist, I have a huge respect and appreciation for her strong and intuitive touch. She is able to take me to a quiet and gentle place filled with stillness and calm within my body. With Dena I feel completely at ease and I am able to openly communicate my needs. She has the gift of a true healer." -J. Osterday, CMT, 2007.

"Dena has the best hands ever put on me. And I am picky! She has great energy and knows exactly where the blocked energy needs to be released. Wonderful hands!!" -E. Cunningham, CMT, 2004.

"Dena is a light shining brighter each time I see her" -L. Mercado, CMT, Vibrational healing Instructor, 2005.

"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." -O. Argov.

"Dena's sense of locating areas of tension and specicific muscles goes well beyond her years in the field. Her use of pressure is perfect and is of the best deep tissue therapists I've had work on me" -J. Garcia, CMT, Massage Therapy Instructor, 2006.

"Dena's massage is a blend of intentional deep tissue release and soft emotional calming. While her nurturing touch is pleasing all over, she pinpoints those troubled spots often a result of injury or misalignments. You will leave feeling balanced, refreshed, and connected with the wellness that resides in you." -T. Dowling, yoga instructor and retired professional ballerina, 2008.


"Dena gave me the best deep tissue massage I've ever had." -Dr. T. Bunning, Chiropractor, 2009.

"I received a deep tissue massage from Dena at her place of business and I was very impressed! First off, the atmosphere at her studio is very relaxing and serene, perfect for healing. The music selection was very good, and she made sure I was agreeable before we started the session. The massage itself was very well done. I could tell that Dena really loves her work and is passionate about the art of massage, as each of her movements were controlled and deliberate and flowed nicely. I typically am disappointed when I receive a deep tissue massage, as the therapist always seems to leave me wanting more, or does not go "deep" enough. This was not the case with Dena. She was incredibly strong and knew how to deliver deep tissue, and made sure throughout that the pressure was good for me. I highly recommend Dena for anyone interested in receiving a professional massage, and the experience she provides for her clients is by far the best one I've had!" -C. Baca, CrossFit trainer, 2009.


"Dena is a master in her techniques and brings a healing to the body that is second to none. Her goals as a CMT are rare in this field as she focuses her efforts in not only correcting the physical nature of the body, but then connecting it with the emotional, mental and spiritual as well as dietary needs in order to heal the body universally. This diverse approach illustrates her true desire and passion to help all that she comes into contact with and truly cares to help you on your path to health and wellness. I highly recommend Dena in taking your first step back to great health and those seeking great personal attention and customer service while keeping value intact." -A. V. Garcia, 2011.


"I have gotten a massage from Dena on numerous occasions and loved it every time! She is the best masseuse I have ever been to. Dena is very thorough, professional, and the results are amazing. I go in to the massage feeling very tight and sore and at the end I feel like a new person. In addition, she charges a very reasonable rate that is well worth the money. I have recommended her to all my family and friends." -Kim Bridgeford, 2011.

"Best massage I've ever had, and I've literally had hundreds of them." -Travis Esway, golf pro, 2009. 

"If you want a real massage, one that actually helps you feel better..see Dena. She is the best I've ever had, and I've had dozens of massages from spas to chiropractor's offices. She knows how to get in deep without hurting you and has very soothing energy. I've had this problem with my sciatica and we've made 50% improvement after just 3 visits of deep work."

-D. Riley, 2009.

"Like butter!! I always feel like butter afterwards. Fabulous!" -Tina Gilligan, 2010.


"Dena is a very service-oriented individual. A natural healer, she's able to pin-point where I was needing work and apply her vast skill-set and knowledge of massage techniques. If you're seeking a professional, kind, enthusiastic and gifted massage therapist, Dena's spectacular!" -Michele Bravo, Holistic Entrepreneur, 2012.
