Sawako Ama,CMP

I was born and raised in a Buddhist temple in southern part of Japan.  I came to USA in 2000 to explore my heart’s calling for healing and art.  I began by learning about Japanese folk medicines and herbs when I was in college in Japan.   I have been practicing massage since 2005.

 I specialize in Craniosacral Therapy and Pelvic Core Alignment, among a variety of healing techniques I integrate in my practices.  My intuitive sense allows me to feel changes in a client’s body and energy during and between bodywork sessions so I can provide the techniques necessary for the greatest benefit.  I consider my practice an opportunity to provide meaningful service where I create a safe space for you to have a time of deep relaxation and healing. In this busy society, we forget to take time to breathe and relax. It is my pleasure to be here to offer such a time and space.

Beyond body therapies, I am a cooking instructor at Sacramento Natural Foods Coop and a Yu-shiki Breathwork and dance instructor at Temple KUKURI.

REVIEWS for my Bodywork or Meditation services

by James on Aug 15
I made sure I had scheduled a one hour treatment with Sawako, and really needed the physical release from "driving leg-hip stress" after 4 hours to Bay area and return, same day. Sure is great to walk without crutches or a cane.

Left feeling great!! Focused work on my shoulder! Looking forward to hot stone treatment next time!

Without fail Sawako is able to treat any ailment or discomfort I bring her.
by Scott on Jan 20
Sawako's detail to her massage was excellent. She makes you feel very comfortable. Also her advice on things I should do at home. There wasn't anything I didn't like. Thanks again!
by Darla on Jan 19
Fantastic. Day after I could tell my circulation had greatly improve in both legs and feet.

It felt like a combination of the two best massages I I have received in the past, both rhythmic and Ayurvedic. So grateful to have found my new massage therapist!
by Steve on Oct 30
I came to Sawako for help with lower back and shoulder issues. The CranioSacral work I received was so deeply relaxing, and combined with some other techniques she intuitively integrated, I was provided satisfying relief for the back and shoulder issues I came in for. Surprisingly, the unnerving stress related heart palpitations I had been experiencing for several weeks prior, that I didn't even mention, went away unnoticeably during the session and my sleeping, starting that night, is also notably deeper than before. Thank you!

I like Sawako's massage because it's a little different than most and she's very skilled at working out the owies :)
