2020.0401: The COVID-19 Massage — I proudly present for your relaxation, our latest virtual distance massage service via this YouTube video; my sincere thanks to the creative Touchless Massage Gurus at Vayu Spa in Atlanta, GA. Here is a happy Vayu Spa client. Turn on your speakers for full benefit.
Unfortunately, delivery of the equipment we need to have in order to offer you this service in-person in our studio has been delayed indefinitely.
... just find a comfy chair, go full-screen, sit back, relax, and imagine you are on my table getting your stress-reducing full-body COVID-19 Massage.
Repeat as needed.
Please do have a laugh, or two or more.
And live your life to the fullest,
whatever that means for you today, tomorrow & all the tomorrows to come.

2020.0327: For at least the duration of the City of San Jose's, Santa Clara County's and California's COVID-19 shutdown and shelter-at-home situation, I am offering remote-site at-a-distance REIKI, Therapeutic "Touch" and Tong Ren energy healing sessions at half-price, $70 per 60-minute session. I will be at my home, and you will be at your home.
And now: I also take advanced session payments via PayPal if you have an email, a PayPal account; and a PayPal.me account ... which allows me to easily send you refunds.
Sorry, I am not yet ready for credit cards;
however, I am working on it.

2020.0308: Other than remote-site at-a-distance REIKI, Therapeutic "Touch" and Tong Ren energy healing services, I am temporarily not taking any new clients in my in-person massage therapy business, given the current state of the Corona Virus (COVID-19); furthermore, all existing client appointments have been postponed or converted into distance energy healing sessions.
Given that massage therapy is "up close and personal," and that I am charged by professional ethics with not making your health and well-being worse as a result of your receiving my services, I feel I can take no lesser action, at this time.
Thank you for your understanding.
I'll be back.

Welcome to Spirit-Mind-Body Massage & Reiki (SMBmassage.com), the home of FRIFTM (Functional Re-Integration FrameworkTM), S2WTM (Stairway to WellnessTM), REWMSTM (Re-Education With Movement & StretchingTM), and TAPSTM (Total Applied Pain ScienceTM).
Remember — if you want MyoFascial Release therapy, then be sure to ask for the real deal, The John F Barnes Approach to MyoFascial Release (MFR/jfba); and be certain that your MFR therapist has been trained by John F Barnes or his trainers.
If you are a cancer survivor wanting a cancer-safe massage, then be certain that your therapist is an Oncology Massage Preferred Provider (OMPP), as designated by the Society for Oncology Massage, our professional association.
At SMBmassage, I facilitate your managing your journey to both freedom from pain and restored personal functionality, thereby helping you to achieve a more pain-free active lifestyle and improved quality of life. Your specific unique acute or persistent chronic pain, stress and orthopedic dysfunction rehabilitation needs are managed through the integration of movement, advanced pain science, and manual & energy therapy services — holistically treating the whole person, not just the symptoms.
I assist the client's — your — holistic healing process. A cornerstone of holistic healing is that, given the correct treatment and coaching, your body can largely heal itself; however, emergency situations will likely require some conventional allopathic western medical treatment, too. As such, I emphasize the need and expectation that my clients will become empowered to take a significant & active role in their own healing process; I will provide them with therapeutic rehabilitative experiences, education, guidance, and tools to enable them to take on this great responsibility of self-care for themselves and their family & friends — including facilitating recovery following conventional allopathic medical treatment.
The client's specific acute & persistent chronic pain, stress, medical, clinical and orthopedic conditions drive how each therapy session is customized within the context of the client's long-term program for manual & energy therapy and self-care, for maintaining & improving their health, wellness & quality of life; and consistent with any valid medical prescriptions.
I am nationally listed as a Certified Medical Massage Practitioner (CMMP) and as an Advanced MyoFascial Release Therapist (MFR/jfba); and listed & designated by S4OM.org as an Oncology Massage Preferred Provider (OMPP).
My medical NPI (National Provider Identification) number is # 1477098572.
If you suffer from, or are limited by any item on this short list below of typical acute or persistent chronic pain & dysfunction problems, then FRIF, S2W, The John F Barnes Approach to MyoFascial Release (MFR/jfba), Total Applied Pain Science (TAPS), Re-Education With Movement & Stretching (REWMS), and Reiki as practiced in concert by me at SMBmassage.com are often able to bring you long-term relief. This short list is by no means all-inclusive, but is simply a representation of some of the conditions I treat at SMBmassage.
