What Our Clients Say

H.S.
⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐

“I was totally skeptical coming in. Even a little resistant. But I had the best session ever. I keep waiting for “the catch”. Like, how could this have possibly worked within an hour– something that I’ve been carrying around, in and out of therapy, for years? But now, two months later, I still feel free of my burden. Before I left, I took a bunch of Divya’s business cards. I have a few friends who could really use her help!”

D.A.
⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐

I have been seeing Janet Perrino for multifaceted neuro-muscular-skeletal-joint issues combined with fibromyalgia. Janet’s knowledge of anatomy and how it affects the function of body parts is golden and unmatched by any other physical therapist or even doctors. She was able to quickly figure out my problems and find solutions that resulted in, pretty much, instant improvement and pain relief. Incredibly grateful for all the help and treatments.
Los Altos, CA

Regular monthly massage therapy provides therapeutic relief to people of all ages and all walks of life, from the competitive athlete to the home gardener to the over-stressed businessperson.

Here's why: Massage therapy offers a drug-free, noninvasive, and humanistic approach to wellness based on the body's natural ability to heal itself. Sessions are 50-80 minutes and include a mix of different therapies, including cupping, Graston, stretching, and or manual massage.

While finding a reason to treat yourself to a muscle release session may be easy, finding the time to do so may be more challenging. Taking time to take care of your health is frequently difficult to prioritize — keep in mind that one-to-two hours of muscle release can possibly make everything you do less stressful and less painful, allowing you to be more productive with the rest of your day!

 

Explore The Massage Techniques We Use!

Myofascial therapy is a broad term encompassing various techniques for treating issues related to the fascia. It may involve other approaches, such as myofascial trigger point therapy and other manual techniques focused on the fascia. 

Myofascial Release is a type of myofascial therapy that applies gentle, sustained pressure to release tension and restrictions within the fascia (connective tissue surrounding muscles and organs). This helps to address adhesions, scar tissue, and other restrictions within the fascia. 

 

Craniosacral therapy is a gentle, hands-on approach to healing that focuses on the craniosacral system, which includes the bones, tissues, and cerebrospinal fluid surrounding the brain and spinal cord. Practitioners use subtle manual techniques to release restrictions and promote the body's natural ability to heal and self-regulate.

Neuromuscular massage therapy focuses on specific trigger points and addresses underlying imbalances. 

Acupressure is a traditional healing technique that involves applying pressure to specific points on the body, called acupoints, to stimulate the body's natural healing abilities. This technique is based on the same principles as acupuncture, which is the flow of life energy through "meridians" in the body. However, unlike acupuncture, acupressure uses finger pressure instead of needles to promote balance and wellness
