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).

Ben is terrific at relieving my sciatica when it flairs up from time to time. He has a lot of knowledge about body mechanics and is always furthering his practice. I highly recommend Ben to everyone.

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.
