SKILL IN MASSAGE
Stephanie B. | Nov 2020
"Great having a massage from Miguel again! My energy was up and relaxed for several days. I value not only his skill in massage, but he remembers my body and he always gives me advice and help with my muscles. My go to guy for a great massage!"
Mary G. | Oct 2020
"Sitting in front of a computer all my life means neck and shoulder problems. Miguel's massage work is medicine! It's deep massage that leaves me with a greater range of mobility and less pain. He is incredibly thoughtful and professional and his office is conveniently located on Piedmont Ave."
WALKED OUT WITHOUT PAIN
Cherie C. | Sep 2020
"Parking was easy and the room was comfortable and clean, with an abundance of fresh air. The massage made my tight, stressed out muscles stretch out and relax. I was able to get up from the table afterward and walk without any pain in my feet, knees and back which I had suffered for more than six months."
Patricia P. | Nov 2020
"It’s a rare occasion to meet a master of ones craft, and it was obvious moments after meeting him; that Miguel is a master of his. His knowledge of anatomy and the body coupled with an individualized approach to treatment work together to provide an experience/healing specific to each client. I will be back for many more, and still feeling the work while making my way through my work day."
Caitlin C. | Oct 2020
"Miguel is a masterful bodyworker. He gives the best massages I've ever received, and I've gotten a lot of them over the years. He is an attentive listener, has a deep understanding of anatomy, and uses his expertise in different modalities to actually address any pain or issues you have, not just gloss over them. I've left his table feeling like a million bucks every time, without fail. Don't wait another minute to book a massage with him!"
ATTENTIVE & THERAPEUTIC
E. Hong | Oct 2020
"One of the best body workers I have been to in the Bay Area. I prefer deep tissue to really work out the soreness and tight muscles--and he does just that without the pain. He also provides excellent tips on preventing recurring chronic issues. He's attentive and does great body work and has a great soothing energy so it's a great relaxing and therapeutic experience."
