Generally my massage is a deeper pressure massage that is therapeutic and often results in a high level of relaxation after the session, although the session itself can be at times vigorous. I use a variety of styles in my massage, including Yamuna Body Rolling® Hands-On work, shiatsu, myofascial release, deep tissue, trigger point, structural integration and influences of Thai and many other massage modalities. I have been a Certified Massage Practitioner in the city of San Francisco since 2009. In 2010 I became a personal trainer, becoming certified by the National Academy of Sports Medicine (NASM). In 2015 I became an Exercise Coach, certified by the CHEK Institute, followed in 2016 by my certification as a CHEK Holistic Lifestyle Coach Level 1. This background heavily informs my bodywork.

My massage styles typically blend together along with breathwork to meet the needs of my client, but I also offer a Zen Shiatsu massage session. A typical shiatsu session is both relaxing and energizing as I employ varying degrees of pressure while moving about the body in a rhythmic, flowing sequence. All major muscle groups are stretched and all joints in the body are mobilized, restoring energetic harmony and a sense of bodily awareness. Shiatsu is a deep, invigorating style of massage developed over millennia and brought to western shores in the 20th Century.

Bodywork sessions are typically done at my studio, near 8th and Mission Streets, San Francisco, at Diakadi Body, on Division Street between 10th and Brannan Streets, or at Fitness Urbano, near 17th and Missouri Streets, San Francisco.
