My journey into bodywork started in 2006 at Just For your Health College of Massage and my education has yet to cease. An Associates in Biological Sciences as well as a certificate in Sports Medicine from West Valley Community College was the next step and is where my love for sports medicine emerged. Spending two consecutive years alongside the best athletic trainers in the valley, I gained invaluable experience with on-field injuries, off-field rehabilitation, and countless evaluations. Shortly after, I earned my Bachelors in Kinesiology/ Movement Science from San Jose State University. Since then, I have been working with and alongside the best, athletic trainers, chiropractors, physical therapists as well as strength and conditioning coaches in the Bay Area. 

I have completed certifications in: Neuromuscular Massage Therapy, Myoskeletal Alignment Technique, Myofascial Release, the Functional Movement Screen, Clinical Massage Therapy, Functional Range Release, Cupping Therapy, Rock Tape, and Corrective Exercise.

You can find me spending most of my time learning new information about movement, massage therapy, and strength and conditioning. I also enjoy being active and exploring the great outdoors.

Nejet is professional and gives the most amazing messages.

Najet is the best massage therapist I have met. She is very skilled in releasing muscle tension and promoting wellness with a wide range of issues such as every day strain, under/overuse and injuries. She is highly knowledgeable and I always feel so much better after our appointments. I have and will continue to recommend Najet to anyone seeking a therapeutic massage experience.

Najet is so amazing, so knowledgable, and a true miracle worker. I felt better immediately. I'm so glad I found her.

Najet is the most knowledgeable masseuse I have come across. I felt so much better, like the A-Ha moment of goodness. She aims to identify and fix the issue and leaves you with tools to help yourself. Relaxing in the way that you know you are in good hands and actually taking a step in the direction of healing. Highly recommend!

Will definitely be back

Najet is one of the best massage therapists I have ever worked with. She understands your body and intuitively knows what areas need work. The only bad thing is that she is so busy, you need to book an appointment with her a month in advance,

The facility where the room is located is loud. Najet is VERY knowledgable
