About Us

Bill brings to his work extensive knowledge of anatomy, physiology and movement, the intuitive insight of a theatrical actor and director for more than 20 years, and more than thirteen years of training and experience in three powerful healing modalities: Esalen® Massage, Deep Structural Massage,and Visionary CranioSacral Work®.  His skillful touch is guided by intuitive insight to ease the aches and pains that brought you to him, and sometimes to help you let go of deeper and older wounds embedded in the body, mind or heart.

Like many of Bill's first-time clients, you might be drawn to Bill for help with an injury or accident resulting in muscle spasms, whiplash, tightness, aches or soreness....

Client Testimonials

Here's what our clients are saying


  • Bill is a gift to yourself.

    I've been coming to Bill for over ten years, and he just gets better. Just feeling his hands on my body puts me at ease, and by the end of the session (crania-sacral) I feel like my soul has been renewed, and has brought my bodily aches and pains along to wholeness as well. Magical.

  • Pinpoint massage and conversation

    I most enjoyed sitting and swapping stories. Great to see you Bill!

  • Bill has deep capacity for tuning in, listening to the body, and meeting it where it needs to be met. It's been wonderful to work with him.

    Bill is a wonderful body worker. I've seen him for over 10 years for massage -- No two sessions have been the same. He is incredibly tuned into the body and meets you where you are, with tenderness, strength, knowledge, intuition, and personalized care. He is a true gem of a practitioner!

  • Bill is a Master. I have been going to him for years and he just gets better. Thank you Bill.

    I could feel my knee was softer and more flexible after my appointment with Bill. It's not completely better but I want to make another appointment. I feel it's going in the right direction and I'm so pleased!

  • Bill is a true healer.

    I really appreciated how Bill worked on my IT band and figured out the source of the pain. He is an amazing body tissue detective! Additionally, the headaches I was getting from my recent concussion are subsiding thanks to Bill knowledgeable and effective cranial sacrum massage. Thanks, Bill!

Bill took time to listen to my concerns and developed a careful and well-thought through approach. His skill level is at the very best and he made me feel very at-ease - not an easy task when one is experiencing discomfort.

Bill’s work continues to improve, to deepen; I’ve been a client for ten years, so I’ve witnessed that. This most recent session was heavenly; I’d had a rough week at work, and it all seeped away in 90 minutes. Extraordinary.

Bill Kester is an exceptionally skilled body worker. I've seen him regularly for every bump, knock, and stored feeling in my body for over 10 years. I'm a dancer, martial artist, cyclist, and now CrossFit-er, as well as an under-slept mom and someone who does a lot of personal emotional work, and I cannot recommend him highly enough! Sometimes I make an appointment just because I feel tired! He does not do the formula massage - he takes YOUR body into account and works strategically for release and relaxation. I'm truly grateful for all his hard work and knowledge.

He was very knowledgeable about his work and ask me "where does it hurt. He then explained what he was doing and why . A very thoroughly professional and knowledgeable approach.

What I disliked: nothing. What I liked: Actually Bill's quiet cheer was so powerful that it was in and of itself healing. But in terms of the actual bodywork, his hands calmed me down the moment they went on me, and I relaxed more. Later in the massage he was able to do some really deep work on some trouble spots but I was so relaxed and felt so safe that I noticed a little pain but had no reaction, physical or emotional, to it, and felt very different when I got up and walked away. Magnificent healing.
