Hello, my name is Ben. I am a professional pain and movement/massage therapist. Helping people through bodily pain, dysfunction, and tension has been a lifelong passion of mine and I feel extremely fortunate to be able to offer bodywork professionally. 

My exposure to bodywork began with my mother, who, after a lifelong struggle with a neck injury, constantly treated her son to a variety of manual therapy in hopes that he would never have to cope with chronic, debilitating pain. Visits to chiropractors, Rolfers, neuromuscular therapists, acupuncturists and the like were a theme, and they shaped my beliefs early on about the healing power of soft tissue manipulation, intelligent human touch, and movement. During my late teenage years and early 20s as a competitive distance racer and ultra marathoner, I found self massage to be by far the the most efficacious method for maintaining the functionality of my own tissues and I was amazed at how quickly and completely I could help my teammates resolve debilitating pain through massage. After graduating from Willamette University and earning a Liberal Arts degree, I studied at the Mckinnon Body Therapy Center with some of the most skilled therapists in the Bay Area. I went on to receive a certification in Advanced Neurokinetic Therapy (NKT) and Selective Functional Movement Assessment (SFMA).

REVIEWS for my Bodywork services

Knowledge is key, and he knows the source of pain! That pressure in different spots is incredible how body relates!

I've been having body work done for years, and Ben is hands down one of the best masseurs I've ever worked with. Ben has a deep understanding of body and has helped address problems in my neck, back and arms that have been with me for a long time. I'm a repeat client, and with no end in sight to the day-time desk job and the weekend athletics, I'll be seeing him for as long as he has a table in San Francisco.

I came to Been for a tremendous pain I had in my right shoulder. He worked very carefully and patiently, checking in with me at all.times. I felt safe, taken cared of, heard and super relaxed. His knowledge, and wisdom was very helpful. He explained everything to me and I left feeling very relaxed and my shoulder feels amazing. I would definitely recommend him to any person out there seeking healing work. Especially women, his energy is safe and I felt completely relaxed in the session.

Ben is an extremely gifted therapist!

I’m a long distance runner and have been seeing Ben for weekly sports massages. He has a cozy, beautiful private studio and a heated massage table that feels amazing for a tense body that has accumulated many miles over the week. He knows exactly how to release trouble spots (some of which I’m unaware until he discovers them) over a 90-min session that passes in the blink of an eye. I leave feeling lighter and fresher to conquer the athletic demands of the week ahead. His knowledge of human anatomy and biomechanics far exceeded my expectations. Also, Ben is highly personable and a great conversationalist, and I feel that I can be myself around him in a judgment-free zone. I've been through many massage therapists to find the right fit but, after finding Ben, I've never gone back to find another!

What really amaze me is he knows what part of my body needs work. I really feel so light and relax after the massage. So book now!!!

I asked Ben come to my house on a friend's recommendation to help address some chronic low back pain I have. Ben arrived on time and was very easy to converse with. He spent about 15 mins asking very specific questions about my issues until he really understood what I was dealing with and laid out a plan for how he'd like to approach the massage. During the conversation it become very clear to me that Ben has a deep, rich understanding of anatomy/physiology. As a result, he approaches his work with a thoughtfulness and consciousness that's unique in my experience. Given our 'header' introduction, I was blown away by how intuitive his touch was. I originally expected a more clinical massage, but Ben worked from a place of such awareness and empathy! The trust with which my body responded to his touch was almost eerie, allowing me to relax the ways I needed. His touch was always perfect pressure for each knot found and the stamina/patience of his hands took out even the most stubborn ones. A great massage on any level! Ben has a new long-term client

Ben is INCREDIBLE! I am a competitive athlete and book an appointment with Ben monthly to work on my tight calf and hamstrings. He works your muscles hard which allows this to release and open up. I am so impressed with his pressure and how my body feels and functions after getting body work by Ben. Can't recommend him enough!
