YOU DESERVE TO FEEL GOOD!!!!
I offer an integrative style that draws on therapeutic massage, structural bodywork and trigger point therapy. Many of my clients come to me with work related pain associated with computer use and/or repetitive motions, migraines and posture related aches and pains. They find relief from the discomfort and you can too! You can feel confident the session will be tailored to fit your individual needs.
"DO WHAT YOU LOVE...LOVE WHAT YOU DO...AND FEEL GOOD WHILE YOU ARE DOING IT!"
Andy is a certified and
therapist specializing in
pain relief through
structural bodywork and
trigger point therapy at
her private practice in
San Francisco, CA.
Her style flows between the edgy manipulation of soft tissue and soothing, restorative bodywork. Using an intuitive and intelligent approach, Andy's style speaks to
the bodies' inherent resilience and desire to
move toward balance and alignment.
By releasing holding patterns that are no longer serving us, we can expand and reach our full potential.
Andy's intrigue and passion for massage is rooted in her fundamental curiosity about the human body and how things manifest somatically, her education from the Florida School of Massage in 2005 and her continued education, with many reknowned and prestigious teachers, in a variety of massage modalities including injury specific myofascial release and trigger point therapy, postural analysis as well as subtle modalities like ortho-bionomy, craniosacral therapy, reiki & Ayurveda.

The journey continues! A recent car accident left me with a broken finger and, sadly, unable to do massage. This unfortunate event coincided with my wife accepting a position in Portland, OR. I am no longer available for massage in Oakland. My apologies for this abrupt transition as I am deeply connected to all my regulars and will miss you so much! I am in deep gratitude to all of you. Stay tuned for more information on my relocation to Portland.
In April 2018, I became certified by RockTape in IASTM - Instrument Assisted Soft Tissue Mobilization. In IASTM, we use a tool to release fascial restrictions by little scrapping the skin, creating a controlled microabrasion and stimulating the bodies' self healing response.Come try it out in combination with cupping, myofascial release and trigger point therapy in a therapeutic massage session today! Also, if you have been feeling tired and wired or like your nervous system is needing a reboot, I am now offering private sessions of Yoga Nidra, an ancient style of meditation that lulls the brain into a lucid state while the body achieves a deep state of relaxation and restoration. Read more about how Yoga Nidra works here and also under services.
We offer supreme quality therapeutic massage in the heart of Oakland, just north of Lake Merritt.
