Life is a dance.

I approach each bodywork session as a dance of energy, following breath and the present moment of your whole being. When we can drop back into our bodies and into presence, tensions fall away and our systems can recalibrate.

I have over 1,000 hours of training in embodiment, somatics and the healing arts, and over 15 years of training in dance and yoga. I love getting to provide care to the lgbtq+ community. I am... happy to welcome you in my home studio in Oakland, or travel to you.

My massage is a blend of Shiatsu, Myofascial Release, Swedish Massage and Energy Work, depending on your needs.

Whether you're looking to relax, relieve tension, boost your spirits or simply treat yourself, I aim to address your specific needs with clarity, heart, and presence.

Contacting Natan was hassle-free and friendly. From his energy and spirit through text alone I felt like this would be a positive experience. Wasn't prepared for how truly amazing, restorative, and invigorating the experience actually was. I was thrilled to see Natan offers shiatsu massage on a mat. If you have not had this type of massage I highly recommend. Natan checked in about my body before, during, and after. He seemed to understand exactly what my body needed and where. A floor mat massage is a bit different (but better imo) than a table and Natan made sure to help me and my body adjust to positions that made it comfortable and effective. Exceptional skill. Positive energy. A glowing spirit. This was my first time with Natan but will definitely be back.

Natan is a great masseur. I needed a massage with deep pressure, and he certainly was able to provide it. He listened closely to when I needed more - or less. He gave me just a minute or two of breathing advice at the beginning, which was the right amount for me, since I’m not exactly the meditative type. He talks when you want, and doesn’t when you just want silence.

It was the most relaxing two hours I’d had since before COVID, and I’ll be going to him again.

I cannot say enough great things about Jack's massage. He has a great understanding of anatomy and physiology, along with amazingly intuitive touch which makes him one of the top masseurs I've ever seen. (and I've seen Dozens!!). Added to that, Jack has a warm and inviting presence, that put me immediately at ease, and created the space for a wonderfully deep and healing experience. 6 Stars!!
