Sharmila Ganguly

Massage is something that you start learning but you never finish. It goes on and on, and the experience becomes continuously deeper and deeper, higher and higher. -- Bhagwan Shree Rajneesh

I love the workings of the human body. It continues to amaze me with new insights and a lifetime will not be enough to learn and understand it. There are so many ways of looking at it, as muscles and joints, as a single myofascial unit, as energy meridians, as channels and chakras, as movement, as rest... and they are all true and still not complete.

Sharmila is a massage therapist of great skill, but more than that, she is a lovely human being with a sense of humor. I always feel not only relaxed and healed but also uplifted from time spent with her.

Sharmila has a lovely energy, her space is warm, and you can quickly drop in to your body and deeply relax. She asked questions, attuned quickly to my "issues," and it felt very safe and healing.

Sharmilla gives skillful, interactive and deeply intuitive massages. The venue is at a nice comfy house nestled in the West Berkeley neighborhood. The cute and cozy massage room downstairs of the house that opens to a well-tendered backyard garden sets up part of the ambiance. The music selection, lighting, and use of heat blanket are done just right to create an effective and enjoyable healing space. I plan to seek out her skillful bodywork from time to time.

I cannot say enough about this massage therapist. The best neck massage I have had in 35 years of working on neck issues. I return again and again. Thanks, Sharmila!
