"Welcome to Therapeutic Massage by Jonathan, CMT.

Where the power of touch meets compassionate care. In a world that often prioritizes productivity over presence, taking the time to slow down and listen to your body is a radical act of self-love. My mission is to create a serene sanctuary in the heart of East Cut, San Francisco, where you can unwind, recharge, and rediscover your worth. This safe and inclusive space is open to all, with a special welcome to... the LGBT Community.

I craft personalized massage experiences that nurture both body and soul, using expert techniques to ease tension and promote deep relaxation. To enhance your treatment, showering before your appointment is recommended (a shower is available at my location). Appointments are available during the day and into the evening (please inquire for availability). For faster responses, I prefer text messaging, and booking is by appointment only.

I had a great experience with Jayvee’s massage therapy! Jonathan was exceedingly easy to book with, and he even came to my hotel room on a rainy day. He communicated well to ensure that I received the massage care I was looking for and all trouble spots were treated. He is quite intuitive and obviously has lots of experience in various modalities. He offers a great value, and I highly recommend his massage therapy! I felt so much better after the massage. Just what I was looking for. The real deal.

I’m from the Central Valley and was in the city for the day for work and I googled massages nearby while on my lunch break and so happy I found Jay!thankfully he was ready and available! I had stiff neck and was in so much pain especially after the long drive up. I felt so much better after 30 mins! His technique is exactly what I needed! His place is clean and the vibes were just right! Thanks again Jay! If you’re working in the FIDI area I highly recommend you go during your lunch time! Your body will thank you!

10/10!!! My deep tissue massage with JV was absolutely wonderful! He is SO kind, informative, and extremely skilled at what he does- and practices in such a clean, calm, comfortable space. I have HORRIBLE posture from working with young children for the past several years, & have recently been dealing with the worst neck/ back pain as it’s started to catch up with me; a singular session with JV loosened me up in a way I haven’t felt in so long. I am SO grateful I found him, and I’m so excited for my future sessions. I cannot thank him enough!

Really awesome massage! My concern when I went in today was shoulders and legs — they are always stiff from sitting all day (and maybe due to some bad posture as well!). A 90 minute massage with JV was exactly what I needed. It not only felt relaxing but it felt very effective in releasing tension in those muscles. I will definitely be back!-Andrew M

Jonathan is one of the best masseurs I've worked with, from all over the world, for a therapeutic/deep tissue massage. He has expertise and skill in the body/musculature and approaches his clients with a deep understanding of what their bodies need. Whether you are highly active or sedentary, Jonathan is highly recommended for regular maintenance.

Michael L. ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

This was an amazing massage! Jonathan made sure that I was very comfortable and asked if I had any issues with my body. I told him my lower back was hurting and he noted that down. His apartment was very clean, tidy, and inviting.

Now for the massage!
He asked for the amount of pressure and demonstrated each pressure on my back. Very thorough, worked out the knots in my shoulders and helped me with my lower back. 10/10, I really enjoyed his bodywork.

After the massage:
Offered a shower, and gave recommendations on how to prevent aches and pains.

Final verdict:
I enjoyed going to Jonathan for his body work, professional, responsive, and attentive. Looking forward for my next one.

It’s my second appointment with Jonathan- because his overall energy is amazing, kind, and intuitive. His strength and varying pressure throughout the massage are soothing and certain to leave you blissfully energized. Plus he’s an all around good person. I highly recommend Jv's Bodywork.

I was having major lower back pain and had a really great session with JV's Bodyworks. I left feeling much better than when I arrived and immediately scheduled my next appointment with him. I have gotten many massages in my time and this was definitely high among them. Highly recommended!

As a working mom of 2, I tend to carry a LOT of tension in my body. I see Jay at least once a month to rejuvenate! He is well trained and offers a caring and healing abilities through his skills. He is warm and has positive energy. His space is so relaxing and conveniently located in the heart of SF. He customizes the treatment based on my body’s need. He’s truly one of the finest massage therapists there is! Thanks, and see you again in a couple of weeks!

Best massage ever! I’m not really into massage until my friend recommended Jonathan. He is highly recommended so I thought why not give him a try. As a full time employee, and a mother of two toddlers, my shoulders and back are my main concern. After an hour massage with him, I instantly felt way better. All my knots are gone! He is very professional and will make sure to ask which area you want him to focus. He will also give you tips on how to avoid straining your muscles etc. So, ladies and gentlemen, please don’t hesitate to contact him if you’re looking for a good massage therapist. He will not disappoint you. Thank you Jonathan, I will for sure see you next time!

"Gentlemen, by all means, if you're looking for a great massage session, you've come to the right place. This is a man who is truly gifted with his hands and has the ability to create a transformative experience for your bodywork needs. I've had many massages from others on this site, and I can say that Jonathan falls easily within the top 2. In addition to his extensive training and his skillful ways of applying it for a therapeutic session, his place is extremely peaceful and inviting; in fact, the ambience he creates is also extremely appreciated. Moreover, he is quite prompt in booking and easily answered all my questions, putting me at ease long before I ever entered the session. So book now! You really will wish you wouldn't have waited so long after one session with him. I know that was the case for me!"
