Therapeutic Massage in Los Altos, CA

Reboot + Recover + Rejuvenate

Therapeutic Massage

Massage Therapy focuses on identifying and addressing areas of muscular pain and dysfunction through the application of targeted pressure. It aims to alleviate pain, reduce muscle tension, and improve overall movement by addressing muscle imbalances, fascial adhesions, trigger points, and nerve compression. This approach involves a deep understanding of the body's neuromuscular and fascial system which aims to restore proper functioning through specific techniques and skilled assessment.

After the assessment, you can expect many different techniques, such as myofascial release therapy, craniosacral therapy, trigger point therapy, myofascial therapy, and neuromuscular massage therapy. All techniques used will aid in the healing process and help you get back to moving pain-free again.

If that sounds like you, now is the perfect time to get a massage in Los Altos, CA!

Explore The Massage Techniques We Use!

We use various techniques to personalize your care based on what is appropriate to help you heal.

Myofascial Therapy

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

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

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

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

Acupressure Therapy

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.

What Our Clients Say


“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!”
Los Altos, CA


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.

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.

Neuromuscular massage therapy can address a variety of health conditions, the most prevalent being stress-related tension. Muscle release may additionally offer certain benefits in treating high blood pressure, lower back pain, post-operative care, arthritis, and depression.

  • Increased circulation
