Deep Tissue, Shiatsu & Swedish

12 testimonials


I have been a practicing massage therapist since 1995. I earned my CMT in Deep Tissue and Shiatsu from "San Francisco School of Massage". After over 20 years of experience working on many different types of people, my massage has evolved into a combination of Deep Tissue, Shiatsu, and Swedish. I use medium to deep pressure depending on your needs and can adjust the pressure according to your liking. My... focus is on quality therapeutic massage. I use Deep Tissue for all bound up muscles, Shiatsu to promote energy flow throughout the body, Swedish to keep you relaxed, and stretching to lengthen the muscles and promote range of motion and circulation.

I do my best to create a clean, relaxing and tranquil environment for you to escape. You'll unwind on a heated massage table with flannel sheets to keep you nice and warm throughout the massage. I use Biotone Herbal Select massage lotion and Biotone Herbal Select Foot Therapy, both are water base lotions that leave the skin feeling fantastic afterwards. All clients may shower before or after the massage.

Some of the many benefits of massage therapy include:
• stress and anxiety reduction
• relief from painfully tight and bound up muscles
• improved circulation throughout the body
• improved range of motion and flexibility
• improved body function and increased energy

I can't speak highly enough of my experience with Ron. The space he has created is so comfortable and inviting that I immediately felt at ease and relaxed. Add to that his exceptional table-side-manner and it was a win win situation. Bonus points for the excellent soundtrack he used for the massage! I can't wait to go back.

I've been going to Ron for over a year now. I started out with just a 90-min session to fix my aches and sores. Ron was just brilliant! He worked out the knots on my shoulders, spent time working on my lower back and my super tight glutes which were the causes of the strains on my lower and mid-back. He was so good, I ended up signing up for his 6-session package! Now, I try to see him at least once a month to undo all the stress and bad posture from sitting at the computer or the long daily commute. If you want a skilled masseur to undo life’s tensions, Ron’s the go-to guy!

Ron is amazing! He really listen to my very specific needs and made me feel comfortable. He was very in tune with my body and able to read my emotions. I really enjoyed his services- he really goes the extra mile! Looking forward to my next appointment!
