Taylor Shogren

Strong Sensation

I started doing massage at the age of 5 thanks to a mother who loved getting her shoulders rubbed. Later in life, after 8 years in the Marine Corp, I decided to have a career that I loved, that made a difference and helped people. Using my GI Bill, I went to massage school for a 720 hour program in Emeryville CA and started working in a local spa in 2002.

13 years later, I've been working for myself solely for the last 5 years and have been helping folks out six days a week.

Fantastic deep massage. Possibly the best I have ever had. Taylor knows how to find every sore muscle and point, and works skillfully and steadily - he uses the time very effectively. Kind, caring, interesting person running a very professional business. No extra fuss or advice - many massage therapists I have been to try to sell herbal remedies, give a lot of unsolicited lifestyle advice, etc. Taylor gives you what you came for - a truly exceptional massage, leaving your body and spirits in much better shape than when you arrived.

Taylor is extremely skilled in going after pain points. He'll get deep into problem areas and help them open up again within a day or two of your massage (you may feel post-workout sore). He's also got some great jokes on tap to make you laugh while you're hurting! He really helped me relax a spasming ulnar nerve and to deal with ongoing neck and arm issues.

best massage ever. per my request,Taylor gets right to the spots in my shoulder and neck that need alot of attention because of my work as a landscaper. he also greatly improved my low back pain by working the large muscles nearby (yes, gluts), which released the contracting low back muscles. i also like the friendly chatting & joking during the massage. makes it more relaxing to me.

I've been a client of Taylor's for nearly two years now, and it has been a privilege! He does amazing work. I'll definitely miss him when I move away in a few months; he's by far the best massage therapist I've ever been to. Thank you Taylor!

I have been going to see Taylor for over 7 years for body work needed as a result of injuries and sore muscles mostly resulting from fitness-related activities. Recommend for those seeking deep tissue body work with a firm touch.
