Our signature deep-soothing massage that incorporates pressure, stretching, Thai yoga and reflexology to both relax and energize your entire body. This richly rewarding massage helps maintain good overall health and vitality.
This wonderfully relaxing massage involves lubricating the skin with soothing, brown rice oil and gently working muscle tissue to release built-up tension and muscle adhesions. You may end up falling to sleep during the session.
Herbal compress therapy dates back thousands of years and is designed to relieve muscle pain and inflammation. A selection of therapeutic herbs including Zingiber, Ginger, Turmeric and Lemon Grass are wrapped in a muslin compress, steamed, then gently applied to the body in circular, rolling movements bringing medicinal heat to sore muscles and joints.
A unique experience using thumbs, fingers and a hand-carved wooden massage tool to stimulate therapeutic energy pathways known as "sen". These sen, commonly referred to as reflexes, are connected to different parts of the body. When stimulated, they have a positive effect on the entire body. While the main benefit is relaxation, foot reflexology improves blood flow and proper transmission of nerve impulses throughout the body.
Designed to relax those hard-working neck and shoulder muscles, we target the soft tissue (muscles, tendons, and ligaments) in and around the shoulder area. This also helps to loosen related muscles and joints throughout the entire body. Perfect for people who spend a lot of time in front of a computer, but also beneficial for those suffering from chronic headaches and/or migraines caused by tension.
A healthy and helpful massage for expectant mothers geared to relieve muscle cramps, spasms, and pain in the neck, lower back, hips and legs. Prenatal massage therapy can be an instrumental ingredient in a woman's prenatal care. Please consult with your midwife or obstetrician before having therapeutic massage during pregnancy.
Our passion for massage is reflected in our warm, inviting environment where you can relax and fully enjoy your experience.
Rooted in Ayurvedic medicine, Traditional Thai Massage combines stretching and body movements to loosen muscles, release tension and eliminate disease. Practitioners integrate yoga, energy healing, acupressure and meditation to relax and invigorate clients.
The massage takes place with the client fully clothed [loose fitting clothing] on a comfortable futon mat. We provide suitable clothing to wear, or you may choose to wear something loose and comfortable. For full body oil massages you will need to remove all clothing (except undergarments) to avoid oil staining. A towel or sheet will always cover areas of the body not being worked on.
Yes. Walk-ins are welcome everyday except Tuesday. (Tuesday we are closed.) However, you may need to wait if we're busy with other clients. You can make an appointment with us by calling (415) 592-9939
Please arrive at least 5 minutes before your appointment to fill out a small intake form. This helps us determine the type of bodywork you require.
We know you sometimes get delayed or have a change of plans, it happens. So if you're going to be late or need to cancel/change your appointment, please let us know as soon as possible by calling (415) 592-9939. If you do arrive late, we'll try our best to massage you for the allotted time. However, to avoid cascading delays, we may need to shorten your session if several clients have appointments immediately after yours. If this happens, we'll either make up the time on your next visit or give you a discount on your shortened session.
We're open everyday except Tuesday from 10:00am to 8:00pm.
We accept cash, debit cards and credit cards (Visa & MasterCard). We prefer cash because credit card companies charge a fee for each transaction. Cash payment ensures everything goes to our therapists. If you need cash, there are two conveniently located ATMs just two blocks on either side of our location: Chase Bank @ Geary & Parker and Bank of America@ Geary & Collins
We have 20 years collective experience with Traditional Thai Massage and how it relates to the body's systems, physiology and kinesiology.
In additional to Thai Massage, there are literally hundreds of variations of massage and bodywork throughout the world. Knowing this, we continuously refine our techniques, incorporating new ways of healing and energizing the people we touch. Some people enjoy deep, strenuous muscle work while other prefer things a bit lighter. We cater to your specific needs, focusing attention on problem areas with individually tailored sessions that incorporate both Eastern and Western massage modalities.
We strive to build fruitful, lasting relationships with our clients, not massage someone for the allotted period of time, take their money and rush them out the door. We want your massage to be a relaxing, rejuvenating experience - alleviating tension, pressure and toxins that build up in the body.
Our dedication to providing unsurpassed massage services is reflected in what people are saying about us.
