Are you stressed? If you are not in pain and you store your stress and tension in your body and just want a massage to work on those knots, I can help you with that to. We all are used to stress and not all stress is bad.  However, too much stress can leave us feeling frazzled or overwhelmed.  Therapeutic massage is a perfect stress management tool that can help relieve you of that stress.  Let me work on those knots in your back, shoulders and neck, etc.

Deep Tissue, Sports Massage, Craniosacral Therapy, and Myofascial Release

Studied the above massage techniques at the Body Therapy Center in Palo Alto, CA. Over the past 15 years I have refined these techniques in an effort to help my patients searching to gain relief from pain and stress. This range of techniques allows for a range of massage with strong pressure to the most gentle touch. It can be very calming or very energizing. Myofascial techniques for instance, work equally well with both very tender and sore muscles and joints, when a light touch is required, as well as with chronically tight and stiff muscles and joints, were a more firm and directed touch is more effective.

Orthopedic Massage

Trained by Thomas Hendricksen, DC,. Orthopedic Massage was designed to address many common and uncommon orthopedic and sports injuries using side lying massage during the rehabilitation phase. Because side lying massage is still uncommon in the field of massage I have developed a niche using this technique in addressing: sciatica pain, frozen shoulder, migraines, stiff neck with pain, low back and upper back pain, shoulder pain and many other medical issues.

Prenatal Massage

Expecting mothers benefit from massage during the prenatal and postal period. I have successfully worked with expecting moms throughout their full term pregnancy on many occasions. Prenatal Massage is a specialty designed to bring about relaxation and pain relief for expecting moms with an awareness of their specific circumstances. I welcome the opportunity to work with you.

REVIEWS for my Bodywork services

The best massage therapist I have ever had. And I've had a lot.
by Crystal on Aug 28
I was most impressed with his assessment. As a nurse during COVID, I have a lot of tension and stress lately so I wanted to feel relaxed on my day off. Enrico asked me what I wanted and let me know I could speak up and it wouldn't hurt my feelings. He added some stretching to the massage which helped. My goal was to be relaxed and I got that.

Excellent at draping the sheet well and making sure I was always comfortable and knew what was happening. Was respectful and kind, and an excellent masseuse.

After years of recreational sports (triathlon, marathon, hiking, etc) my body needs ongoing alignment and untwisting of muscles. Enrico listens very well, takes notes and does a great job of helping with my spinal alignment and shoulder/neck pain.

I have used Enrico numerous times when I am in San Francisco and he is a top notch massage therapist. As a highly competitive runner for my age, I have long used regular massage as one of the tools in keeping me fit and healthy, so I know good from bad. I hoghly recommend Enrico.
