After walking over 400 miles on the Camino de Santiago in Spain, I'm happy to say that I am back, rested, and ready to dive back into work. Although my feet took a beating, my arms and hands got to rest!
I relax people and get them out of pain.
I give them simple exercises and stretches they can do
on their own to keep them pain free.
I have been a working massage therapist for 26 years, and a massage teacher for 10 years.

I base my work
on my training with my Mentor, Al Chan, Physical Therapist, who has
taught me to recognize and alleviate compression and rotationally based
asymmetries, the root cause of most muscular and structural pain, and
how to address them with traction, de-rotation, anti-gravity massage and
stretching. My training in Thai Bodywork is an inspiration for the
deeply therapeutic work that I do. And finally, I have developed a
unique method of using Hot Stones for Warming the Body and Soul, and for
specific deep tissue bodywork. I have been a daily meditator for over
30 years now, and I strive to transmit deep peace to the people I touch.
I teach massage therapists how to do my unique method of Hot Stone Massage both privately and at The Massage Therapy Institute in Davis. My office is centrally located off the 101 in San Rafael, CA. I love to teach classes that help people live better lives, such as Self Care for Insomnia and Couple's Massage.I feel really lucky and blessed to have discovered my life's work in my early 20's. I can honestly say that the path of service has been so deeply rewarding for me that it far exceeds what I ever thought was possible. I laugh with my friend and Mentor Al Chan about doing massage till the end of my life, and hobbling to work with a cane and still doing amazing bodywork!

"Lea is an amazing, loving, nurturing massage therapist. I feel so safe, so listened to, so taken care when I'm with her.
I'm very sensitive and I don't get massage from anyone because my body needs to feel safe.
She cares so much and she is helping me with my upper back, shoulder and hands. She looks for information, I feel so taken care of.
My body is opening and letting go ....
Her space is beautiful, cozy." –Sabine, Feng Shui Consultant
"That was some extraordinary Bodywork. I haven't had it that good in a long time. You're such a lovely potent presence." –Tras
"You relieved my chronic migraine and relieved my back and neck pain from a recent car accident. I have only had infrequent migraines since. No more botox!" –Danielle
"Thank you so much for the massage - still feeling its benefits!
This was my first time working with Lea, and my first hot stone massage.
I have to say my massage was the most relaxing, rejuvenating massage I've had yet!
Her technique was awesome with the hot stones and has really helped me breath better!
I'd recommend Lea to all my friends!"–Mason
"Thank you for the best hot stone massage I have ever had. I've had many massages, so I can truly say you are very experienced in your craft. Your touch is healing, and the massage itself was well paced. My daughter referred me to you; she said that she received a wonderful massage from you as well. I like your room too; it is clean, well decorated and conducive to relaxation. I will be back, and will refer my friends and family to you. Thank you for a lovely experience."–Evelyn
