    Highly recommend Sara, the instructor who was superb

    My whole experience was very positive. I made another appointment and will probably continue to do so.

    good massage

    Kim does my swedish massage and she always provides an excellent massage. I have an upper back stiffness and when kim does the massage on me the stiffness starts to loosen up. I also feel kim is very knowledgable about the anatomy of the body and she know how to approach the massage very well. she is very gentle and at the same time she provides effective massage without force. Moreover, kim is very pleasant, professional ,and compassionate. Thank you Kim for making a difference!

    Jake - highly recommend!

    I visited BodyWise for the first time yesterday for an hour-long, deep-tissue massage. I was lucky enough to have Jake as my masseuse/bodyworker, and I left there feeling better than I thought I could. I give him my highest recommendation!!

    Loved my four handed massage

    I'm visiting from the Midwest and had never seen a four handed massage as an option. I will definitely try it again when I find them...or maybe just request it when I get home.

    Excellent Massage

    I was in a bit of a panic as my back was having spasms that needed to be addressed asap. It's always a bit worrisome when you need a same-day massage. I have a regular massage therapist but she's never available without booking in advance. Well Tobi at BodyWise is now on my "regular" list. I picked Body Wise because of the number of positive reviews they had on Yelp. They happened to have an opening within hours for me. They only had an hour slot for me but that was enough to relieve the spasms

    Great experience

    Lovely experience at BodyWise. Close your eyes and you'd never know you were not in a fancy spa. Please add eye pillows and a more regulated heating experience (the blanket is too hot or I'm too cold without it). Great massage therapists and the owner is fantastic and organized about scheduling appointments. The price is right (until it went up).

    Will be back to see Kim

    My massage with Kim was perfect for me--both therapeutic and relaxing. She skillfully knew where more pressure was needed and is caring and respectful. Her addition of peppermint aromatherapy in the beginning really helps one's sinuses to not stuff up when facing downward.

    Great relaxing experience

    Have been to Body Wise several times and always pleased with the quality and expertise of each massage I have had. Mentioned my current physical issues to Lowell and he was able to work on those trouble spots and release the pain and tightness. Great!

    What a great massage I had

    I went to Bodywise this Sat because I had a knot in my right shoulder. I have to say I get a massage at least once a month from many different people but Jake was amazing. I'm defiantly going back to him again.

    So much bliss

    If you want to become unknotted and feel deep relaxation then book a massage with Susan! Not too deep, not too light just the perfect measure of therapeutic and melting of my sore muscles.

    Kathleen goes deep

    My back and shoulders are again released thanks to a deep massage at the hands, elbows, and forearms of Kathleen. She knows just where to press and how deep to go to get that release. I highly recommend her. Take care of yourself and let Kathleen help.

    AHHHH

    The Bodywise Massage staff were a "triple threat at all levels...personal, professional & proficient. The "welcome-wagon-woman"£ at the front desk was upbeat, cheerful and inviting. The masseuse(Laura) was her twin sister in temperament and was a "kneading-ninja"--under the classification of relaxation. A triple A rating for this firm of fine folks!

    Kate is excellent!

    This wasn't just a massage to feel good, she got into the deep tissues and tendons that desperately needed attention. She listened and gave attention to my specific needs (my elbows are hyperextended which causes a host of arm-shoulder challenges). Truly excellent.

    BodyWise Massage great place for massage

    Susan gave me a great massage. I shared with her my current situation and need for a relaxing massage. I feelt very relaxed for hours after the 'pefect' massage. It was a very pleasant experience, including the booking and checking in with Audrey and the healing environment of the space.

    Body Wise a must for a fabulous massage!

    Jacob was my massage therapist at Body Wise. He had great technique and it was one of the best massages I have ever had. Audra at the front desk is kind and helpful and booked my apt for me with ease. She also told me about a package which saved me $30. The price is very reasonable especially in Marin. The location is easy to get to with parking available across the street. I found my new place to go for massages!

    Binh is the antidote for "winter body"

    The colder winter temperatures are hard on my muscles causing them to be tighter than normal. Binh knows the right therapeutic techniques to coax my muscles back into shape thus restoring my equilibrium. Regular therapeutic massage is a necessary part of maintaining my good physical and emotional health.

    Glad I chose bodywise

    Googled massage places in the area and I took a shot st body wise based on reviews. I have a terrible back with a ruined C5. That makes my cervical spine hurt. Jake melts all the stress and hits the right spots. I'm s massage connoisseur, not easy to please, having massages in Asia, most especially The best in Thailand and this is comparable.

    Another great experience at BW.

    All the massages I've had so far have been great. Kim, Jake, Bee and Tobi are the ones I've tried so far and they all know what they're doing, but each has a distinct style of their own. I want to try all the practitioners, so when I go for my next monthly massage I will try someone new and will report on it here. Anyway, I've loved my experience here every time!

    Toby did an excellent neck and shoulder massage

    I had a 30 minute deep tissue shoulder and neck massage from Toby four days ago and I still fell the benefits. She was gentle and reassuring and also reached deeply into my muscles to relax them in a way that I still feel. Incredible!

    Bodywise offers excellent massages at affordable prices.

    Jake continues to take classes that offer him an in-depth understanding of the body's needs. He stretches, he deeply strokes, and helps you to breathe as he works the muscles and stretches whatever needs stretching. I walked out of there understanding what I needed to work on to get more flexibility and to reduce tightness. Thanks so much Jake. That was an excellent massage.

    Tobi finds the knots and the point of origin

    After a massage with Tobi, the body relaxes and breathes a sigh of relief and the knots know they have been kneaded. She finds the path along which the knots radiate and works that, too. I have truly been touched by Tobi's deep understanding and working of the body. Thanks Tobi.

    Solved my neck problem

    Started sunday with a brutal stiff neck. Couldn't turn left or right or drop my chin. Played some tennis which only made it worse Had a half hour neck and shoulder massage with Francesco Sunday afternoon and felt so much better. Still tight on right side so I went back for another 1/2 hour treatment and today I feel perfect. Played a 2 1/2 hour tennis match and not a twinge. I never get massages and didn't know what to expect but I'm sold now. Thanks to Francesco and to Body Wise

    Always great!

    I often don't book a massage until I'm in a lot of pain, which was the case this time. Lucie was great & helped get rid of the pain as well as relax my muscles. The work was also lasting, much better right away as well as afterward, tho I'd had the kind of pain that could go on for days! The place itself is welcoming and helpful and I love going here when I can. And the discount emails mean I can, more often!

    Ho Hum...another EXCELLENT massage from BodyWise

    Audrey, the owner, has the keen ability to have only wonderful, therapeutic hands under that roof! That being said, everyone has their own personal preference of a masseuse, but you will only receive a professional, healing massage from anyone there. Kim was very attentive to the needs of my aching back, neck and shoulders and I feel amazingly better! Always so grateful for BodyWise!

    great massage with Toby

    I got a half-hour massage with Toby on short notice to work on my aching, very stiff hips. In just a half hour she managed to loosen up my hips enough that I got a good night's sleep for the first time in weeks. I'll be back soon for a follow-up!

    Massage with Bea

    I requested a Swedish massage when I made an appointment. When I arrived I talked to Bea who was going to do the massage and she suggested a combination of deep tissue and Swedish. I couldn't believe how much it helped to get out all of the kinks from a week's worth of weeding the garden. Whenever I've gone to BodyWise I have been totally satisfied and only wish I could go more often. It's relaxing, comfortable, nice people, and.always a great massage.

    Lorraine was spectacular!

    Just had a 60 minute massage with Lorraine and WOW. She really tuned in to my body, using great pressure and technique where it was needed (and verbally checked in with me, too, which was great!). It was SO hard to get up off of the table when the session was over - the experience was pure heaven! If you are looking for a nurturing, attentive, highly-skilled massage practitioner - book with Lorraine for sure.

    Awesome!!

    I love going to BodyWise! I've had two amazing massages there. It's so convenient with their online scheduler and since both the body workers were amazing, I couldn't ask for anything more. I have a big trip this week to NYC so I'm sure I'm going to need another massage after that trip. Thanks, BodyWise!

    Pain relief

    So happy I found a massage therapist who I can count on to give me so much relief. Judy is so good at what she does, I have a job that is repetitive and physical at times and getting deep tissue massage as a maintenance for my physical health works great! It's easy to book appts. online and reasonable rates, central location too.

    Feeling much better

    This was my first time at Bodywise and it was GREAT! Perfect blend of laid back zen and normal. You're not paying for the décor, just a great massage. Tobi was great. She asked me what my issues were and then got right down to it. I learned a lot, but only because I asked questions. She's friendly and informative, but not a chatterbox.

    Heaven!!

    Having just experienced an auto accident, I was so happy to have Laura work on my slightly damaged body. Linda, at the front desk, encouraged me to switch from deep tissue to Swedish massage, and am I glad that I did. Laura is a serene, caring, "gem" who provided relief, instruction, and encouragement. Thank you to everyone at BodyWise!!

    Jenifer has the most soothing long gliding stroke you can imagine

    Perfect

    Perhaps it helped that when I booked the massage, I explained what I needed, the type of massage I prefer. I was then scheduled with Jake, whose work was a good match for my needs. Jake listened to my needs and I left very satisfied with the body work. As usual, Bodywise provides excellent service. Thanks.

    I had a 60 minute session with Laura last Friday and it was FANTASTIC. From the moment we met, I knew I was going to be taken care of. She was welcoming, grounded, and made me feel safe while she did thorough, deep work. I would highly recommend her!

    First Experience at BodyWise

    I received my first relaxation massage at BodyWise on February 20, 2015 with Julia Alpers. Julia was informative, professional, caring, and thoughtful. She told me what to expect, gave me appropriate instructions, and made inquiries so that I always felt comfortable and safe. She expeditiously went about her work in a very systematic manner. I had a very pleasant experience that left me feeling fully relaxed and rejuvenated. I intend to return for more massages. I recommend BodyWise.

    Massage

    Everything was handled very well. Making an appointment on line was easy. Receptionist was efficient and friendly, Massage was by Josephine and she was very good. My only criticism was the room that I had the massage in. It is directly in front of the entrance so that when I exited (and Josephine before me), the daylight was jolting. I will definitely go back again but ask for a different room.

    If you're looking for a great massage, BodyWise is the place to go. I took a day to myself, in which I knew I wanted a massage to relax. BodyWise had such great reviews across the internet that I had to set an appointment. Audrey was my masseuse, she was really nice and did a great job.

    soft touch & focused energies: great healing

    With my grand-child Justine of 7 months old, the pleasure was to be holding her, to be going on the floor & then getting her out of her jolly-jumper. All that comes on my part with a productive work-out that uses different muscles! Mark took care of releasing any knots that were inevitable after having had so much pleasure to be with Justine. Every grand-mother needs to visit BodyWise!

    deep tissue fabulous

    I have had a 'mystery' issue that I've known isn't chiropractic or bone related, but is soft tissue. Bee seemed to know just what I was talking about and didn't make me feel crazy for lack of medical knowledge! She made me feel very comfortable telling her if the pressure was too much of giving her feedback during the massage. The staff is always so kind and friendly.

    Lucie did exactly what I needed

    A Massage Treasure in San Rafael

    I had an illogical concern about massage after a surgery two years ago, but my shoulders and neck were screaming that I needed one. BodyWise was recommended and I chose Toby randomly. She was the perfect choice - very thoughtful, highly skilled and effective! I left with a renewed body! I was told that massage professionals choose to go there themselves- they know!

    Deep Touch

    I recently received my second session with Jake at Bodywise in San Rafael. He is a skilled and attentive practitioner who surpassed my expectations on both occasions. I have been an active massage therapist for over 25 years and know the type of work I love to receive: slow, deep, and attuned. Jake's approach was just what I needed and wanted.

    Great Relaxing Massage

    Upon a Yelp recommendation, I booked a 60 min Gentle Relaxation "Pro" session on a lazy Sunday. I'm so glad that I went! My massage practitioner was Jake. He was friendly and did the best work at relaxing my often tense hips, legs, and shoulders. The vegan massage oil used in the session was superb. A very reasonably priced massage session, to be honest- lower than the costs of something similar in San Francisco. All in all, I'll definitely be returning for future relaxation massages!

    Fantastic Massage

    After enduring a couple of days of neck pain I decided I had enough and went online to make a reservation for a massage at Bodywise. I've been before but never made a last minute request . I took the next available time slot and was paired with Tobi. I'm a big man and I was surprised at how strong Tobi was for such a little woman. After she was done with me my pain was gone. I am very happy with everything about Bodywise. Easy reservation process and a great staff.

    Bee's healing hands

    I've been seeing Bee for relief from painful arthritic joints for 3 years. Went in yesterday with extreme, debilitating pain in my lower back that had lasted most of the week. Didn't have high hopes, but Bee worked her healing magic beyond all expectations! This morning I woke up without the familiar pain and stiffness that had me walking around bent over and shuffling. Thank you, Bee!!! Very welcoming front office staff, too, and I always look forward to conversation with Audrey.

    I was so happy that Bodywise was able to accomodate me with a spontaneous appointment for a massage....you can't always plan ahead! Audrey always does a great job of taking care of you in person or on the phone. I was lucky to get a massage with Binh(I had seen him once before). I was having a lot of neck and shoulder pain and he really helped me feel better. He has a very soothing, but strong touch and I look forward to more massages from Binh.

    I've been here 3x now, each with a different therapist. At each appt., I was met politely, asked of my specific needs and offered water, restroom, etc. Tobi, Binh and Sue are excellent. Most impressive was listening to me in what I needed and wanted, and delivering. Twice I had to reserve last minute,(who knows in advance that a shoulder will hurt), and they've accommodated. Support BodyWise 150%. Go here!

    There's a Reason We Return to Bodywise...

    We used to live in San Rafael, and get our massages at Bodywise -- very talented massage therapists priced 40-50% less expensive than the spas in Calistoga. After moving to Sonoma, we experimented with a few 'local' massages. Sonoma massage studios must survive off the tourists - the massages were not as good and they were far more expensive. So?... we've returned to Bodywise - incredible massages at reasonable prices. Ask for Rich or Bin, Kate or Bea. You won't be disappointed.

She did a great job in identifying the best approach for me. I will definitely be a repeat customer!

Book your next massage - swedish or deep tissue - with Lorraine. You won't be disappointed!!

    It was my first visit to Bodywise. I saw Binh with very tight shoulder muscles and a sore back, I left Bodywise feeling like a completely different person. I will be a regular!

    Impromptu Session 6/20

    My massage yesterday was last-minute, with my original appointment elsewhere having to unexpectedly be canceled. I appreciate Body Wise's ability to schedule appointments last-minute, and it worked out well to receive much-needed attention. Susan was very intuitive and responsive to my needs, in this case deep tissue work, adapting to pressure point and shiatsu to address certain areas. Because of this visit, I am in a much better place today.Thank you Susan and Body Wise.

    First time at BW

    A most lovely experience. From the very calm vibe on entering the shop, Susan met me outside. The room was comfortable, very clean and I relaxed immediately. Susan's deep massage and intuitiveness gave my body exactly what I needed - rest and uber relaxation. I am happy have found a wonderful new spa to attend frequently.

    Great Experience!

    My first time at BodyWise and I very happy with the experience. I set up an appt with a student masseuse to cut the cost a bit (even though the regular price is still only $60-$70, I think, I paid $33 for the student price) and she did a wonderful job! She asked me twice during the hour swedish massage how her pressure was, each time it was perfect. I would definitely go back! :)

    I was well taken care of.

    My body felt both relaxed and relieved of pain. Lorraine took such good care of me that when I walked out of the massage room I knew that I had gotten just what I needed. She stretched, she rocked, she went deep and she shoothed. Thanks Lorraine, you're the BEST!

    Great Place for Massage

    I've had several massages here and they are all great. It's no frills place, but the price is amazing for what you get. I recently had Binh and he was amazing. Great service, friendly and very affordable. If you don't care about a "spa" experience, and would rather spend your money for a therapeutic and intense massage, this is the place!

    First Experience

    I have had many massages in my lifetime but this has been my first in many years. It is my first experience with a student and found it very enjoyable. Allison was very good and unfortunately will be gone soon. However, I will return to BodyWise again next month because I think it is wonderful that they offer us this unique opportunity to enjoy a massage for a price that we who are income limited are able to to afford. Thanks so much!

    AMAZING!

    I was totally satisfied in every way after my recent Deep Tissue massage with Susan. She worked with such mindfulness and care that I felt very safe and thoroughly worked over. I practically floated home afterwards! Her presence is remarkable, and I really felt like she was taking care of ME and making the session completely about my body & soul. Do yourself a favor and book your next session with Susan! You won't be disappointed.

    After weeks of daily back/sciatica pain I left in a daze of relief. Lorraine listened to my concerns, addressed them, worked deeply, precisely. Intuitively.

    Midweek Relaxation

    After retuning home from work Wednesday afternoon tired, stiff and a pile of email to answer, something great happened. I noticed an email from Bodywise offering a special for that very day. I grabbed the phone and called to ask if it was still available. Knowing I have never been let down by anyone at Bodywise, I quickly scheduled with Lucie, the new addition to my favorite place. My body felt new as I walked out. This may become my mid week ritual.

    Therapeutic Massage

    I recently received a session from Aki at BodyWise. Her detailed work on my over-stressed areas was extraordinary. Her presence, skills, and pacing transcended my highest expectations. I especially loved the way she extended the strokes in continuous and circular motions. I am an experienced practitioner of 25 years and, for the first time in all my years of receiving bodywork, I actually felt humbled in the hands of another practitioner. In gratitude, Susan

    30 Minute Massages - WOW!

    I just started getting weekly 30 min massages at BodyWise and WOW can I feel a difference. I like to change up who I work with because everyone seems to have a different style, and my body seems to appreciate the variety. Someday (when I have the $$), I will absolutely book longer massages, but for now the 30 min sessions are working wonders on my back, neck and shoulders. They have a "package deal" where you can buy 3 or 6 sessions at a time and save $3 off every massage. Totally worth it!!

    My back had been in severe spasm for five days despite my best efforts (topical Pain Wizard ointment, Epsom salt baths, alternating hot and cold packs, gentle stretching) so my daughter bought me a massage. I chose Judy based on other reviews, particularly that she was very intuitive in her work. She worked deeply after easing into the tight spots, and I experienced improvement before I even left BodyWise! I intend to make a visit with Judy a monthly occurrence! Bless you all!

    Love this place

    I've never had a massage at BodyWise that wasn't terrific, and I have had many that were perfect. I purchase 6 at a time, benefit from the discount, and give them to my loved ones.

    Bee continues to excell

    I've been going to BodyWise for a number of years now, and just had another great massage by Bee. I came home and took a nap after the massage because I was so relaxed, and my whole body feels better because of her good work. Thank you!

    Kerin was great

    It had been a couple of years since my last massage with Kerin. This one was fantastic. She really worked deep into my tight shoulder areas and opened up my back. She used a wide variety of techniques that removed a lot of my muscle soreness. I definitely need to schedule another session with her soon!

    Aki reigns

    The power of her hands is amazing. She's strong and able to get into areas that haven't been worked before. She knows right where to work to release those tense and achy muscles. Thanks Aki.

    Wonderful Fantastic Massage

    I am only afforded the luxury of a massage a few times per year and BodyWise is by far the best place I have found to pamper myself. I have tried several places and BodyWise is the only place Ive come back to over and over. My latest massage was with Binn and it was the best yet. Im looking forward to my next pampering day at BodyWise.

    Heavenly Hands

    My massage was very relaxing and therapeutic at the same time. My massage lasted for an hour and a half and it seemed as if only 20 minutes passed! There was was a heating blanket so it was nice and warm under the clean sheets. The prices are extremely reasonable and I will be back to BodyWise often.

    Best Masssage

    Wow, what an amazing massage. Aki is a deep tissue body worker. She is very detail oriented and focused on those chronic, tight spots. I went in complaining of neck and back pain and Aki made sure to address those areas. The best and most complete neck massage I've ever had and I've been getting massages for 20 years. If you want serious, deep body work, Aki is the one. Aki was very respectful and checked in with me about the pressure but otherwise she left me to relax in silence.

    Getting Broken after a Retail Holiday

    Best in the Bay, no contest!!

    I am a busy hairdresser with horrifying body mechanics. After working up at the Golden Door Spa in Park City. It took me a while to find a place whose therapists rivaled that of the ones I worked with. BodyWise massage therapists are the real deal. They could all easily be employed at a world class spa. It's totally no frills, but VERY clean. I see Binh. Binh is the most physically intuitive massage therapist I've ever had , a Deep Therapeutic genius and very soft spoken and sweet .

    Excellent Practitioners Who Listen

    I prefer very deep tissue work. I have used several practitioners here all of whom have done a very good job. I've used several because of timing issues only, not because I have been dissatisfied with any of them. I keep coming back because I know I will get an excellent massage every time and the location is easy to access. Recommend highly.

    Amazing affordable massage!

    I was lucky enough to come across body wise on a google search for massages in San i purchased an hour deep tissue with Binh, who I am convinced has some sort of supernatural powers. The massage was intuitive, relaxing, and worked wonders for my angry neck and subscapular areas. I walked in with a raging headache and walked out with a smile on my face feeling like a million bucks. I only deducted a star for the bathrooms, which are outside and you need a key for them.

    Judy at Bodywise

    Judy is terrific--a great sense of flow, with the ability to ferret out all those tense places and convince them to loosen up a bit! She had a lot of variety in her strokes, and seemed to know when to go deeper, and when to back off, without my even commenting. I definitely recommend her.

    Massage with Bee

    I had a pre-natal massage w/ BEE. I have continuous neck pain and also now lower back pain from picking up my one year old! Bee could feel the knots and sore spots immediately and used the perfect amount of pressure (not too gentle, almost deep tissue) to work them out. I feel brand new! I would recommend Bee 100%!

    Too much weight on my back

    I have to tell you I have been in pain since this message. The practitioner was so nice that i hesitate to say anything. I weigh 110 pounds and am 65 years old and she knelt with her whole body weight on my lower back. It still does not feel right.

    Wonderful setting, Great Therapist, Awesome Price!

    I always get a 90-minute massage, so I was pleased to find that BodyWise had the cheapest rates in the area if you purchase the package deal. The setting is nice and peaceful. I must also say that I enjoy a deep deep DEEP tissue massage, and a good one is hard to come by. I had Rich as my massage therapist and he went deep! Of course it was only because I asked him to, but the massage loosened me up. Wonderful setting, great therapist, and awesome price! Can't beat it.

    My 90-minute massage at BodyWise, hands down, is the best I've ever had. I asked for a deep tissue massage and *actually got a deep tissue massage*! The setting is simple, quiet, peaceful. Plenty of parking. Very reasonable rates, friendly service, and caring and non-judgmental professional staff. Overall mine was an exceptional experience -- wouldn't change a single thing.

    No frills, five star massage, great prices!!

    I worked at the Golden Door Spa at the Waldorf Astoria in Park City. While there I had some of the best massage of my life by some pretty amazing therapists. I'm a hairdresser and good massage is essential to my line of work so I'm a pretty strict critic! Body wise ranks right up there with them. Binh is my go to guy. I have had great experiences with at least four other therapists but he's my favorite. Like I said no frills, but I'm there for the talent not the cucumber water.

    I was so stressed out about a recent chiropractic treatment plan that I needed a massage! Binh is wonderful. He does alot of active stretching and seems to have an intuition about where to work.

    Being clear is best

    I had a great massage. I think it helped that I was very clear about what kind of massage I wanted when I called to make an appointment. As a result, I got exactly what I wanted, which was a massage with a lot of pressure.

    "Pro" deep massage

    Unlike Kelli, I was not asked if I had any injuries or areas of concern.I voiced a need of work between my shoulder blades and that I broke my little toe to please be careful There was no connection between her hands and my muscles - it went from rubbing the lotion in to elbows digging across taunt tight overused muscles. At the end, Judy grabbed both feet and I pulled my foot away and reminded her of my injury., it was one of the worst I have ever had.Will not return for sure!

    Kelli's Relaxing Massage

    Kelli immediately asked if I had any injuries or concerns prior to the massage. Once her hands began working their magic, it was clearly an outstanding massage with her hands blending with my muscles, working gently to relax away the tension. I began to doze off because it was so relaxing. Kelli addressed all of my concerns and did a gentle stretch on a problem area. I would recommend anyone to Kelli for a superb massage for those who like a gentle touch! Will return for sure.

    I have been going to bodywise for years but my last massage there with Kelli was the best yet. I had some sore spots which I explained to Kelli and she completely understood and went for it (and I can be a baby about speaking up sometimes.). Go see her, she was amazing!

    Body Wise once again - Fantastic

    I'm always impressed by the practitioners at Bodywise. Every massage I've had there has left me blissed out. Even the student massage is fantastic. My last massage was with Aki and and was extremely therapeutic. Her pressure is firm, but I like that. I usually have the problem of not enough pressure but not with Aki. Having been to massage school myself, i can say that Aki knows anatomy very well and her style was unique and extremely therapeutic.

    Massage by Bee Jones

    As usual my massage w/Bee was perfect. From the moment you step into the suite you feel your heart and breathing rate start to slow ( perhaps this is just me in anticipation). I have been going to Audrey's place of business since she was down the street and before that one was remodeled....in other words a long time! I love the space she has created and the practitioners she has invited in to provide this healing service. Well done Audrey!!!

    I called Bodywise hoping for a student massage, as money is tight for me. Instead, they offered me a 30 minute head, neck and shoulder massage, which was absolutely perfect!

    Relief!

    I had an amazing massage from Binh. I came with a somewhat serious lower back issue, could not stand straight, and left feeling relaxed, with most of the pain gone completely. He is a very gifted practitioner. I would only recommend or request during a future visit that classical piano music is not played, since its more stimulating than relaxing...but potentially a personal preference. The front desk person was very friendly, and the price is great. I will be back!

    Relaxing Massage!

    I love getting massages at BodyWise. I have been going there for years. Most of my massages at BodyWise are better than the ones at fancy places that are almost double in price! That said, I like the rooms, but the aesthetic could be a bit more inviting such as a candle burning in the room.One other suggestion is that I like when the massage therapists spend a minute or two checking in with you about special needs before hand. Besides these minor details, it's a wonderful place!

    Review of Experience w/Binh An

    The overall experience was average. The front desk was pleasant, and accommodating. I took my boyfriend there because my previous experiences have been positive - but I will not do that again. He said his experience was "good", but I don't think it was "stellar". As for my actual massage - I could hear people outside talking. I asked my masseuse to apply more pressure a couple of times - but he did not. I did not leave feeling satisfied.

    Much needed relief

    I went to Binh with a very tight neck & shoulders - for a deep, therapeutic massage. He worked those areas thoroughly and I left feeling much looser in those tight areas; I had more range of motion in my neck and much less tension in general. Ah, what sweet relief! Binh is a very strong & gifted massage therapist. Thank you Binh!

    Mini Vacation

    Went to have a massage because of a wrenched back. I decided to take a chance on a new therapist. Made the appointment using the online tool (it works) and scheduled with Rich. Started the massage tense and in pain, but finished stress free and pain was greatly reduced. Rich's hands are magic! Easily one of the best massages I've ever had (I am a massage therapist myself). BodyWwise space is small, but very clean and quiet. I will definately get a massage with Rich again.

    good therapists

    The massage therapists at bodywise are very good. The pricing structure is confusing, swedish vs: deep. My suggestion is to make one price for a professional massage. Sometimes you don't know what you need in terms of pressure until you are on the table. Overall I have had good experiences there.

    First Massage After Hip Replacement

    Jaime's work was phenomenal! As a massage therapist and acupuncturist, I had a clear vision about what I wanted done. I thought it was going to take a few massages to refine and guide the work. Jaime not only incorporated everything I asked for, but thoughtfully integrated some great range of motion assesments and stretches into the mix. Looking forward to my next session.

    Healing Expertise at a Great Price

    I have used Bodywise in times of great need. The first time I was having a bout of tendinitis in my shoulder, and I booked a next day massage with Binh. I walked out of there with the shoulder pain completely gone. Yesterday, I tweaked my neck so badly I could hardly move at all. I called up Bodywise and made a same day appointment with Kaer. Today, I have about 75% of my mobility back. Thank You, Bodywise!!

    grateful you were open and available!

    I had a great massage! I called last minute on Christmas Eve day and you were 'open' and able to get me in for a much needed massage. I had a wonderful massage with Bea! She, as with many others, Ben, Hymi (sp), Trevor, etc are great massage therapist. I am always happy and feel good when I leave. Thanks for being there......a massage and store I can count on.

    I had a nice relaxing message with Kelli. The shop is clean, friendly and inviting. Kelli really took her time and I felt thoughly relaxed after the session. I am looking forward to going back for a deep tissue message soon.

    sensitive caregivers

    I have been going to bodywise for the past three years and I must say they are my preferred provider for personal body care. I am in charge of my own health and as an RN I am very aware of the deeper effects of the caring touch. I am grateful for Audrey owner and operator of Bodywise. I will return again and again and feel they are assisting me in my self care needs and the support that I provide is supported by this relationship.

    excellent deep tissue Thai massage with Kay

    I received a thorough deep tissue massage with Kay recently. She is also trained in Thai massage which I find very therapeutic. As a CMT myself, I highly respect the professionalism and expertise of Bodywise practitioners. Bee is also a favorite.

    A Nice Idea Over The Thanksgiving Holidays

    I selected a gentle massage and got Rich. He clearly knew what he was doing and it feels good, even the day after. I do believe I will stick with deep massages though..after you've had deep, it's hard to go back.

    Big Thank you to Bodywise

    I'd had a neck and headache for two weeks before I said uncle and called Bodywise. I was fit in to a 30 minute slot at the last minute, and Jaime really did an amazing job getting rid of my pain. I love this place; the people are lovely, the environment is great and the price is actually doable.

    "Just what I needed"

    I have been in lower back pain for 2 months. I had Jaime give me a 11/4 hr massage. He was able to find out where my problem was and quickly fix it by doing a deep massage to the sacrum Iliac. A day later i feel 100% better. Thanks Jaime.

    Best massage in Marin!

    I have been a customer of Bodywise massage for a few years now and have never been left wanting. Each of the massage therapists have a unique style and magnificent attention to detail. The owners name is Audrey and she is always a delight to encounter. She is very attentive to you're personal needs and lines you up with the right therapist for the task at hand. I spent nearly a year trying different places but when I found Bodywise I haven't gone anywhere else.

    Great massage!

    I went in on a whim because my back was hurting. I saw Binh for a last minute 30 minute massage. He asked me if I had hurt my right arm recently (I had, due to a fall). He told me that was why my back hurt and did some intensive work on my right arm. The next day my pain in my arm and back was so much less! It was a wonderful surprise. I felt like I had real therapy. Thanks Binh!

    Massage quality great but new space is too loud and busy.

    I recently had a massage from a student intern. The massage was wonderful. However, this was my first time at the new locatio and I find the new space to be far less welcoming than the old.. The room is not isolated from store noise. The desk person made NO attempt to speak softly nor ask others to. I felt like I was having the massage right in the retail space with all its hustle and bustle. The old space was much quieter & cozier. Perhaps carpeting and a more sensitive desk person would help?

    Kelli kneads out the kinks

    While the massage was spectacular, it's how I feel a day later that really impresses me. My shoulder pain is gone!!!!! Kelli put me into an altered state during the massage. I felt like I'd been meditating and found myself very relaxed when the massage was over. And finally I have some relief from shoulder pain. Thanks Kelli. I'll be back.

    I booked massages for my 17yr. old daughter and myself the evening before she took the SAT. It was a wonderful relaxing experience.

    My body has been detoxing for months as I have shed in excess of 60 pounds. I was also sore from returning to some intense yoga classes after having been sedentary for quite awhile.

    Bodywise Massage

    Booked online for same-day appointment. Judy Bell asked if there was anything she needed to know before starting. She was very professional, used long, soothing strokes and was careful about the areas of which I had concern. The time went all too fast, and I have to say I started to doze off twice, which is always a sign of a good massage. Was very satisfied and feel more flexible the day after. Would recommend to anyone needing to relax and rejuvenate!

    I have been going to Bodywise for years, and the thing that stands out for me is that there is commitment to a consistent quality low cost massage.

    I googled "Marin + massage" and this place matched what I wanted. Nearby, low key, and an easy reservation system. I hadn't had a massage in 10 years, but decided to since I was very stressed out. Daniela gave a wonderful massage. I have arthritis in my neck and after the massage, it felt so much better. Able to turn my head easily. I've now signed up for a series - not waiting another 10 years!

    I picked BodyWIse based on another review I saw about neck and shoulder massage. I had pinched a nerve in my neck and could barely turn my head. I had a great, 30 minute, very affordable, deep tissue massage that just completely worked out the kinks! And I really liked being able to book online - so easy. I am so happy to have found this place.

    Just what I need...

    This is my go-to place for therapeutic massage. I've been to BodyWise twice, each time in desperate need of severe lower back pain relief. Judy and Bihn both accomplished the task of getting a nasty knot out of my lower back, sending me on my way with immediate relief. One of the things I appreciate most about BodyWise is their availability to accommodate me for a last minute session. The other thing I appreciate is their affordability.

    Laura was Great - the Staff were rude

    My massage was INCREDIBLE with Laura yesterday. I frequented your old location for years and enjoyed the PEACE and Happy People who worked there. There was a healing energy and a welcoming - peaceful Happiness in the old staff. A healing energy cannot exist when your office staff are angry and rude to your paying clients. I was ignored for the first 5 minutes by the dark long haired woman sitting at the desk. I gave this location a second try and I will now find a place.

    Heavenly!

    From the moment I walk in the front door till long after Daniela's finished, I feel at peace and grounded. Every single time. She is keenly intuitive about finding and treating trouble spots, but always asks before we start if there are any places where I need extra attention. Daniela is warm, respectful, highly skilled and utterly trustworthy; I'm completely relaxed and open to healing in her hands. (Now I'm hooked on buying 3-packs.)

    Chanelle was so good and tried to work on my tight spots. I came out feeling great and slept really well that night. I'm glad that I treated myself to a package of 6 1.5 hour deep tissue massage sessions. BodyWise Massage has openings most of the time and the people are so nice.

    Bee Jones is amazing

    I was hesitating to write this review because I want to save her for myself :) The massage I received from Bee this week was the best I've ever had. I'm a physical therapist and have acute body awareness. Her technique was not only effective and relaxing, but her willingness to tailor the treatment according to my needs with precise attention to detail made me melt physically as well as metaphorically. I have already begun referring people to her. Thank you Bee for easing my pain! :)

    Just what I needed.....

    I recommend BodyWise for a few reasons: 1) I was able to book a 'next-day' appointment, 2) I was kindly greeted when I entered the facility, 3) The rates are extremely affordable, 4) I received the results I was hoping to achieve with Judy Bell, and 5) Although the facility itself has no bells or whistles (in that it’s not a spa), the room was calming and relaxing. Because I had a great experience, and because the rates are reasonable, I surely intend to make this a regular affair.

    Best Deep Tissue Massage in Years

    I had a 1 hr massage with Trevor. He went above and beyond just working out my tight muscles.

I have been feeling great with increased energy ever since.

    I've been going to BodyWise for many years and always have had great massages..As some leave, other good practitioners come in and take their places, so there is always an array of good people to choose from.. Reception, can help you match up the style of massage you like with the perfect practitioner..And you can't beat the price! Sue Ann

    it was OK

    this is not the first time it has happened in my years of receiving massages, but there should be a rule that the hands of the therapist should be warm when she touches your body. A pair of cold or even cool hands is a shock to the system. The therapist did an otherwise good job.

    Best Marin Massage

    I have had deep tissue massage with three of the therapists at BodyWise over the past few months and each practitioner became my new favorite. I purchased a 6-session special package and gave sessions to my wife and daughter. Well run and very efficient and respectful. Just picked up a second 6-session package yesterday.

    They can't be beat

    Everyone at Bodywise Massage is friendly, helpful and efficient. The massage practicioners that I know are well trained and knowledgeable. I have never been disappointed and it is a great value.

    BodyWise is Great!!!!

    Just had an hour long deep massage with Bee. It was very relaxing and therapeutic. I bought the "3 pack" and will continue with Bee for the next two.

    The half-hour massage was perfect

    Came in with pain and stiffness. I can move again. It was like I had held my breath for a long time and finally could breathe again. Thank you Abby!

    Judy is a pro

    I got a great deep tissue massage from Judy and it did wonders for me. BodyWise is a great deal. No frills, but great massage. I'd rather pay less and be able to afford more of them than spend three times the price at a spa.

    Excellent Student Massage

    I received a student massage and was very impressed. I recently had surgery, which is, understandably, stress-inducing. Jessica really got the kinks out, and I feel this massage helps in the healing process. Good job!

    Jaime really fixed me up

    I had a session with Jaime on Friday after having the daunting task of moving house after 13 years. It really took a toll on me- lifting boxes and going up and down stairs. Jaime knew exactly where I was hurting and gave me a wonderful and relaxing massage. I highly recommend him and all the Bodywise staff, with any reservation, whatsoever.

    You've MOVED?

    I made an appt with Binh An--he's amazing. Unfortunately I was not aware that you moved and so missed my appt. I understand I will be charged for it, and hope every dollar goes to Binh!!!! My five star rating is for past massages!

    Judy was great!

    Strong and senstive hands that really untied the knots in my neck and shoulders. I came unable to turn my head to the left and departed with full use of my neck!

    Binh helped me greatly!

    Binh is very intuitive and always knows how/what to massage to provide relaxation & relief. I see him for deep tissue work as he is very strong & really knows how to go deep with perfect pressure, get into the spots that need it, etc. While physically strong & a wonderful masseuse, he is also a warm, caring, gentle person. Thank you Binh :)

    Abby knew exactly what my body needed.

    It was my first time with Abby, and I walked out of Bodywise amazed that she knew exactly what my body needed. She spent extra time on my upper back. I wouldn't have guessed that that was what I needed until I was on my way out and could feel the difference. Thanks Abby!
