  • I drive 40 miles to have Miguel Work on my body. He is simply the best!

Listened to all my needs and addressed them all with such detail. I feel SO much better after just one visit. Miguel is charming and an excellent masseur.

It was seriously the best massage I've ever had. I'm dealing with significant neck issues and Miguel zeroed in on the problem areas right away. His knowledge of anatomy and function was impressive (and I'm saying this as a nurse practitioner) making the experience both therapeutic and relaxing at the same time. And I felt very comfortable with his easy going style and great sense of humor. ;)

Miguel found all the sore spots and he obviously really knows what he is doing, and a lot about body mechanics. This felt like a much more in-depth massage than many I have received that feel great but aren't as much targeted to healing.

I've been seeing James regularly for a little over a year how. Today he gave me a hot stone massage, and it was wonderful. He is great at working with my body to focus on what needs the most attention and is good at listening to my body as the massage progresses. He is able use a variety of styles (Swedish, Esalan, Hot Stones, etc) depending on my mood or body on any given day, which is great. He also encourages me to continue my focus on healing outside of our sessions.

Parkong was easy and the room was comfortable and clean, with an abundance of fresh air. The massage made my tight, stressed out muscles stretch out and relax. I was able to get up from the table afterward and walk without any pain in my feet, knees and back which I had suffered for more than six months.

Miguel is great- he knows what he's doing and his treatment for pain due to three different injuries was very helpful. He's also got a great presence. He is down to earth, thoughtful, and kind. I will definitely be returning.

Miguel is an amazing massage therapist who employs a number of different practices for a deeply relaxing and therapeutic massage. I started seeing him when I had majorly hurt my back but at the same time had some intense deadlines at work. Very quickly I was able to work without pain and able to get back to 100%. I've been to other therapists before and he is exceptionally skilled.

Amazing massage! I feel great and can hardly wait until the next session. I have been getting "cheap" massages for quite some time now, because I live in the Bay area and I'm on a budget. But cheap massages can often leave you in more pain than you started with. I believe Miguel's prices are reasonable. In fact, when I considered the level of service I received, I felt good handing over my hard earned money in exchange for that service. I will see him again and I will tell people that I know about him.

I feel so fortunate to have found Miguel to do bodywork on me. I have recurrent pain on my neck due to spending endless hour in front of a computer at work. Thanks to Miguel, I am able to get the help I need when I am hurting. He is also always adds extra support and tips so I can maintain my body well adjusted between visits. Miguel is one of the best massage therapists I have had.

Miguel is very personable, empathetic, and an expert at creating a safe space. He truly knows how to be present for his clients. I often have a difficult time relaxing and the need to "relax" for a massage can be a challenge for me. Despite my anxiety, I have found myself able to relax so completely, I was in a nearly dream-like state. This is a really big deal for me and speaks to Miguel's gift as a massage therapist. I have found that his massage has been a key piece in opening the door for a lot of healing, on many levels. Miguel does a fantastic job of working with the whole human - physical, spiritual, mental, and emotional. Miguel is very sensitive to my preferences for pressure and can do deep-tissue work as well as more relaxing techniques. If you are looking for a highly skilled massage therapist that you can trust, definitely go see Miguel!

Let me first start out by saying Miguel is a true massage practitioner and skilled therapist. Guided by his passion and curiosity, he effectively applies his knowledge to his work. After a bike accident a fear years back, I have been working with Miguel for awhile now and witnessed his practice evolve and become better and better. His massage has been the most effective form of healing for me over all other treatments I've had. His kind and personable demeanor, intuitive awareness, mindful attitude and peaceful space all add to the fully comprehensive amazing massage experience. His skills range from energy work to deep tissue and I’m sure after writing this that his list has already expanded. He has a growing interest to understand the human body both anatomically and spiritually. He provides great insight on the massage table and also gives detailed “homework” exercises to practice at home. All of this and more is why I’ve recommended him as a therapist to everyone looking for body healing. To me, it’s clear to see that he truly is a healer in every sense of the word.

I've been getting massages on a regular basis for the past 20 years and am very happy to have found Miguel. He is now my go-to therapist. Miguel took some time at the beginning of the session to check in to find out what's going on with my body and to determine if there were areas needing special attention (shoulder blades, lower arms, etc.). He explained a numbering system so I could give him feedback on pressure which he moderated to the most effective level throughout the massage. When he found that my feet and legs weren't as "bendy" as they probably should be, he took note and showed me some stretches I could do on my own after my session was completed to improve my flexibility. Miguel offered to let me use my own music from my phone or choose from a menu of types of music that he had available so I could tailor the experience. He provided a very professional, skillful and balanced massage over 90 minutes that seemed well-paced and not rushed in any way that was therapeutic, restorative and relaxing. I've already recommended him to my friends, and I'm looking forward to my next massage with Miguel!

I go for the massage with Miguel due to his professional approach and healing technique. I have back pain due to "radiculopathy" and sciatica on and off, herniated disc a while ago. Most of my problem is tight burning lower back pain. When I have a flare I see him once a week, and when doing better at least once a month. I have the healing massage with Miguel for more than two years now. I always feel better after the massage session. Miguel uses a different technique from light to deep tissue massage, Swedish, Sports massage or just simply light touch. He is experienced and professional. I get cold easily, so he keeps the table warm. I highly recommend Miguel Molina for his massage. Arnel De Leon

Miguel is a very skilled and knowledgeable massage therapist. Since seeing him, my body is more flexible. The difference in my hips and alignment and posture is very noticeable. He not only gives me deep tissue massage, but also works on slowly and steadily stretching my tight muscles. He knows a lot about health and nutrition as well and gives me very useful information to help me care for my body. I am very very glad I found him!

Miguel is crazy intuitive with an amazing touch. I have fibromyalgia and have been through many many massage therapist who do not know what they are doing. Miguel knows exactly what he is doing and has created a perminate place to my life with this disease . Without him, I wouldn't know what it's like to have physical freedom . The power of one person!!!

After wanting to get a massage from Miguel for long time (he has been recommended by numerous friends), I finally had the opportunity to see him recently for a piriformis problem. Unlike other massage therapists I have seen, Miguel was very professional in his assessment, and truly listened to what I wanted and needed. The deep tissue massage he gave me was great, very relaxing and enjoyable, but most importantly it helped release the tension in my glut muscles which greatly improved my pain in the area. I should note that I am 6'4" and was impressed with Miguel's strength - something I look for in my massages. It was also very convenient that Miguel accepted my FSA card for payment, an option worth exploring if you have a chronic condition that benefits from message therapy. I highly recommend Miguel!!

I am *very* pick about bodywork, and I've had many therapists. Miguel is great - he listens, understands the body, and professional. He can do deep tissue work (which is a must for me) and also can go less intense. He makes sure to check with you if during the session if anything needs adjusted. Highly recommended!

Miguel has been an absolute angel for me. I have been suffering from chronic pain and go to see him as frequently as I can to feel at peace, help reduce my pain and relaxed. His touch is very caring and my anxieties and worries melt away while I'm getting my massage. He is very professional and tailors the massage and time with you to what you specifically want or need. I won't go see anybody else, love him!
