Meet your massage therapist.
Andrea turner, CMT
Certified Massage Therapist
I think that the most effective massage helps my clients feel well and relaxed. I deliver therapeutic work in a gradual, strategic way, layer by layer, to address the exact tissues causing pain. And I love allowing my clients the time, space, and silence to relax.
More than anything in the world I want my clients to be able to do the activities that truly fulfill them. I have hundreds of clients who have come to me with tremendous physical challenges, and then experienced dramatic breakthroughs.
Education and Modalities
I graduated from San Francisco School of Massage, and practice the following modalities:
- Swedish Massage
- Sports Massage
- TMJ Massage
- Pregnancy Massage
- Trigger Point.
How I Came To Massage
I'm originally from North Carolina, then moved to San Francisco after college to work in the tech industry. I was a career-track Project Manager for a fast paced tech company. I found that massage was an amazing way to manage my stress and computer-related shoulder issues. It became an important part of my life. And eventually I chose to do something a little more meaningful with my life: helping others on a one-to-one basis, through massage. So I returned to school, and then became a full-time Massage Therapist in 2005.
I was named 'Best Massage Therapist 2015' as voted by Oakland magazine readers, and I've been called out in the Best of The Bay issue four times since 2011.
