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


  • Strength -knowledge -experience!

    Bill, your cranial sacral treatment on my neck and head really helped me. I feel so much better today. I am so grateful! Mona

  • Bill's work is always healing and soothing, and I leave feeling my body is in better balance after a session.

    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.

  • Bill creates a sense of calm and peace. I walked out feeling very quiet inside my body.

    I had the best test I've had in 2 weeks after a spontaneous Bodywork session with Bill. I'm glad I found him & I will be back!

  • 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.
