I have been receiving massages from Simone on a regular basis for years. She is a gifted massage therapist whose healing touch rejuvenates the body and relaxes the mind. Her warm oils and deep tissue massage allow one to reach a blissful state on the table and enjoy the benefits for days afterward. She has a strong intuition as to what the body needs and a kind, gentle manner that puts one at ease. Her massage studio is in downtown San Rafael, but feels like a peaceful oasis.

Curious, I signed up for hand/foot massage. Found Anna & the whole experience peaceful and relaxing.

Simone de Winter of Marin Ayurveda interviewed me and diagnosed several health problems. I was then advised concerning diet and life style. I intend to follow her advice as best I can and I expect great results. Simone is very professional and capable and I have already recommended her to a friend.

This was my first ayurvedic treatment and it was fabulous! I felt it was the first COMPLETE massage I have ever received. Thank you, Simone.

So looking forward to Panchakarma
I have been wanting to do Panhakarma for years. Right now, I want a space where I can heal from a year of taking care of dying people. I believe I will be well taken care of by Simone de Winter.

I love the massage, felt so relaxed! However I would have really liked my neck, shoulder and upper back region a bit more worked on. Other than that it was a beautiful experience.

Very calming, intuitive massage
Simone has an excellent, intuitive touch and I left her office feeling completely relaxed. Her office is also very peaceful and I love the apothecary jars filled with spices and herbs.

I can recommend Simone highly for her emotional and spiritual support as I was making changes in my life with her help as well nutritional and seasonal guidance, herbal remedies and Ayurvedic massages. She also works with a local acupuncturist/Chinese herbalist who has been a wonderful complement. If you would like to make a major commitment to Ayurvedic living or simply want to get a taste of what it offers, I would strongly recommend working with Simone.

Simone's simple no frills approach to healing is refreshing, with a keen ability to hone in one's needs.

Great experience with Anna
Anna was able to work out long standing shoulder and neck pain with her expert massage. I'll definitely be booking another appointment.

Simone gave me hope when I was suffering from multiple deficiencies and ailments. She was kind and competent in her ability to provide guidance, support, and a path to healing. She took my appointment on short notice, and had a lovely office. Definitely recommend going to her!

My Idea of Heaven
I had my first consultation and warm oil treatment with Simone. Since I can have pain issues, I asked her to go gentle with the massage and she did. I left feeling deeply nourished and with easy, actionable advice on lifestyle and diet. I will definitely be back!

Best Ayurvedic massage in Marin
Simone is fabulous-knowledgeable, experienced and I always leave feeling amazing. She uses the most amazing oils and I love the hot towels at the end.

a healer extraordinaire!
I've known Simone for years, and she's the best. She's extremely sensitive and skilled; a real treat!

Marian is wonderful! She is thorough, tuned in at all levels and gifted in her healing work. I have had a lot of digestive challenges since I was young, and Marian goes deep in her energy work to resolve the underlying issues. HIghly recommended!

I am at a transition point in my life at all levels and I'm also wanting to manage pain w/o meds. The session began with an extensive conversation that was integral to the touch. Afterwards I felt quite light and 2 days later had a major insight into my present situation. I think this was directly related to the physical and verbal work of my session. I was and continue to be amazed at the powerfulness of this work which doesn't seem like it would be so impactful but definitely is.

Simply the best
Simone is a master of her craft. As usual she provided me with a wonderfully healing massage. She is very compassionalte and really pays attention. Simone has raised the bar so high that I am no longer able to go to anyone else.

Restorative and Rejuvenating
Marian O'Dowd brings a marvelous energy and heartfelt presence to her practice. Beyond her knowledge of the principles and techniques of Ayurvedic healing, her warmth and complete attention gave the treatment a very personal and powerful focus. Very highly recommended!

Bliss and and complete relaxation
I cannot recommed Simone highly enough. Her hot oil massage is unbelievably skillled and relaxing and she is able to both heal and release with her touch. The oils smell great and a session with her is equivalent to spending an entire week on the beach in terms of 'rebooting'. Double thumbs up.

Loved my Hot Oil Massage!
Simone is incredibly insightful and a healer on many levels. The hot oil massage I got was comprehensive and so delightful. The attention paid to my feet was GREAT. I look forward to returning for some more treatments and to learning more about the Ayurvedic philosophy.

life changing, life saving
Simone is absolutely phenomenal. She listens to what you're saying beneath the words, beneath the pain, and gets at source with care, compassion, utter brilliance, and sharp intuition. I felt heard and acknowledged in a very unique way and know that I am getting tools I can actually implement in my every day life to heal myself. I am in deep gratitude for the work that Simone does!
Feb 5, 2012http://www.genbook.com/bookings/slot/reservation/30105246
Simone has an amazing touch. Her presence creates an atmosphere of confidence, kindness, peace, and healing. Stepping into her practice it felt like I was entering into retreat. I highly recommend her for the way she brings the healing potential of ayurveda to life.

The Ultimate Vacation
Simone at Marin Ayurveda is the only person who can completely "unplug" my busy mind in an hour or two, leaving me in "vacation mode" for the next 24 hours. It's the best rest I get without actually leaving on vacation. I recommend her without reservation!

Very nice experience
Very professional, and great bodywork. I loved the warm oil, it was soothing and luxurious. And the massage space is clean, cozy and charming. I wasn't that familiar with the area, so got a litle lost on the way to my appointment, which made me late. Simone was quite gracious about that. All in all, a very nice massage.

Spiritual and Inner upliftment
Received this as a birthday present and it was a total surprise. The "Shirodhara" experience was totally relaxing and uplifting. Always wanted to experience and it really lived up-to expectation. Simone is highly knowledgeable and experienced.
Oct 29, 2011http://www.genbook.com/bookings/slot/reservation/30105246
It's a gorgeous setting. Simone is an experienced and skilled therapist and I found it to be a deeply relaxing treatment. I fully recommend Marin Ayurveda.

Interesting Place - GREAT massage!
It took a little while to find the place, but luckily I made it on time. I believe it is someone's home partially turned into a massage studio. Anyway, once I got over the setting, I possibly had one of the BEST massages in my life! Simone is very professional and puts a lot of effort into her craft. Thank you.

Simone is truly a gifted healer. I had the 90 minute massage with warm oil. I feel fortunate to have found such a wonderful person. The setting is beautiful and serene, a perfect treat.

Beautiful, nurturing massage
I loved my massage with Simone. It was deep and soothing. Simone's presence is perfect. I wish I lived nearby rather than 7 hours away, but I will definitely go back when I am again in Marin.

Great 90 minute massage!
Simone was very good and found exactly the right amount of pressure for me. Would definitely go back -- and actually will next week : )! Treat yourself to something nice!
Aug 11, 2011http://www.genbook.com/bookings/slot/reservation/30105246
Simone is excellent - very skilled and caring. The setting is relaxing and I felt cared for once I was inside. I should have brought a bottle of water with me, as I was very thirsty after the deep tissue work, but otherwise it was a nice experience.
Aug 7, 2011http://www.genbook.com/bookings/slot/reservation/30105246
I thoroughly enjoyed meeting Simone and discussing my health issues with her. She is extremely competent and I look forward to our next appt. and possibly massage too.
Jul 24, 2011http://www.genbook.com/bookings/slot/reservation/30105246
The massage was heavenly and she sensed the perfect balance between conversation and silence. The only downside was that it inevitably had to end....

Opening the blocks
I have had many massages before and would have to rate Simone in the top of my experiences. The oil massage was thorough and healing every step of the way. Finishing it off with the Shirodhara treatment was not only a new experience for me, but an Ayurvedic treatment that I will never forget. I felt as if layers upon layers were slowing drifting off my mind and being replaced with calm and and serenity. My third eye felt like a drain clearing of unwanted and non-serving blocks.

Great massage for relaxation
Simone is wonderful at what she does, which is putting you in a very relaxed state during her massage. I only wish she had gone deeper in a few areas, but part of that was probably me not speaking up about it, because I was in a dream like state. :-)

Supreme and lasting Bliss
I have never been more calm, centered, and at peace in my life. I am a seasoned yoga and meditation teacher and practitioner, and have received many "massage" treatments, but Simone's Shirodhara was a completely new experience (and one that will now be a regular for me). As is the case with all skillful Ayurvedic treatments, the effects (sublime, deep, sweet) lasted not just for a few hours, but into the following days. The treatment (and Simone's presence) centered me in every cell.

Very Reassuring Initial Consultation
Simone de Winter was very engaging in a quiet way and listened deeply to my complex physical and psychological issues. I look forward to our working together.

I have just begun a new life style, Ayurvedic. With the extemely thoughtful and kind guidance of Simone De Winter at Marin Ayurveda, I have finally found the help I have needed for a very long time. I really get the feeling that I am cared for a a person, not just a client. Simone is great with kind attention to detail. Sincerely... Lee Rockwell
