Massage Modalities...

Swedish:  A relaxing full body massage.  Client is unclothed on a table, covered by a sheet and massaged with oil.  Your session consists of long fluid strokes, pressing, kneading and rubbing your muscles.  This modality is excellent for alleviating aches and pains, releasing toxins and improving your circulation.  When you feel the need to be pampered, Swedish is the best choice for you. 

Shiatsu:  A Japanese full body massage on the floor mat.  I incorporate this style massage on a table.  Client is unclothed, covered by a sheet and massaged with oil.  Your session consists of thumb pressure, gentle stretching and joint mobility to release muscle tightness to increase your range of motion.  Also known as Pressure Point Massage, this holistic modality promotes self healing by balancing your body's energy, heightening your awareness and creating an overall sense of well being.

Deep Tissue:  A deeper, more clinical type of full body massage.  Client is unclothed on a table, covered by a sheet and massaged with oil.  Your session consists of pinning, separating and realigning muscle groups with slow focused penetrating strokes.  In addition to hands, I use my forearms and elbows for extra pressure.  This method is designed to target knots and tension.  It is more intense than other types of massages, but I  use caution and never go beyond your threshold of pain.  Soreness is common the following day.

Tissue Density Restoration (TDR):  A clinical massage based upon the theory that every pain in the musculoskeletal system is closely related to the elevation of tissue density.  Client is unclothed on a table, covered by a sheet and massaged with oil. This massage is based on seven principles that target specific areas of tension to help loosen and soften your muscles back normal density therefore pain is relieved.  Note: This massage is for problematic areas only.  It is not a full body massage.  

Sports Massage:  A vigorous athletic full body massage.  Client is unclothed on a table, covered with a sheet and massaged with oil using oil.  This faster paced massage is usually done before, during or after a strenuous activity to help heal minor injuries and prevent further ones.  Your session consists of jostling, beating, compressing and stretching your muscles to maximize their performance.  This modality drains away fatigue, pain, swelling and relieves muscle cramps.  If you play sports or are active at the gym, Sports Massage is the one for you.

Combination:  A full body massage combining all of the techniques I described above.  Client is unclothed on a table, covered with a sheet and massaged with  oil.  Relax and rejuvenate with a more customized session to fit all your needs.  My most popular request.


Chair Massage:  A seated massage that is done in a specifically designed chair. It is a short massage that primarily focuses on your neck, shoulders, arms and back. It is done over your clothes; no oil is required. It is often used as an intro to receiving body work from a practictioner. $20 for 20 minutes.

Reflexology (foot massage): An alternative medicine involving pressure to the feet with thumb, finger, and hand movements.  It is based on a ancient theory that the body is divided into a system of zones which are reflected on the soles of the feet, with the premise that massaging specific points will detect and correct imbalances within the body. It is a short massage done on your bare feet while lying fully clothed on a massage table; no oil is required. $20 for 20 minutes.

Professional, Safe and Secure...

I practice only the most professional and safest techniques.  All my massages are performed on a table. You'll be securely draped with a sheet in a quiet private room with relaxing music and candlelight.  I use natural oils that absorb into the skin and moisturize it.  All men and women are welcomed.
Note: Massage may not be suitable for clients with serious health conditions or injuries. I may ask you for a brief medical history before we begin your session.

Ron Naples CMT

Bio: I am a graduate of The National Holistic Institute. 5900 Hollis St. Emeryville, CA 94608 1-800-315-3552. I am certified, licensed and insured. I discovered the true healing power of massage after experiencing a serious neck injury. Today I teach clients how to prevent injury by using proper posture and understanding their body's capability. I also enlighten them on the physiological and emotional benefits of receiving massage therapy.

My Philosophy: For me, massage should be a journey - a total experience of the mind, body and soul. Clients come to me to alleviate joint and back pain, recover from injury, manage stress or relax. These are all intregal parts of receiving a massage. But why not take advantage of all that massage therapy has to offer? There are also aspects of spirituality when you receive body work too. Massage can put your mind in a higher state of consciousness; you'll have inner feelings of clarity associated with personal awareness and self revelation. It's about creating these special kind of bonds with my clients; awakening their senses while healing their bodies at the same time. After one of my sessions you'll feel relaxed but at the same time rejuvenated with a joyful positive outlook.

Experience: For the last 14 years I have worked as an Independent Contractor for many of San Francisco's finest hotels: Adagio, Argonaut, Campton Place, Clift, Fairmont, Harbor Court, Hyatt, Kensington Park, Mark Hopkins, Marriot, Monaco, Palace, Palomar, Phoenix, Prescott, Ritz Carlton, Serrano, Sir Francis Drake, Stanford Court, Triton, Villa Florence and W Hotel.

I've also worked at Club One, formerly at the Fairmont Hotel and at their Union Square and Oakland City Center locations.

Yelp reviews

"Finding a good massage therapist is like finding a psychologist or any other service professional: the two of you have to click. For me, Ron clicks. He's intuitive, he's professional, and he possesses that other dimension of true tranquility and caring that seems to evade a lot of other therapists. He has empathy for your body and soul." Jeffrey H. San Francisco, CA

"I have been seeing Ron for massage for over a year now in his Richmond Hills location and it's quite clear that he has talent, experience and commitment to what he does from the massage that he gives. I find his technique of combining a variety of massage techniques and movements both unique and highly effective. Ron is professional, courteous, and friendly. He does an excellent massage with just the right amount of pressure from his great hands. I enjoy our conversations during the massage as well as the massage itself, which has helped my lower back pain issues and has left me feeling much more relaxed and pain free. I consider Ron to be my #1 massage therapist in the Greater SF Bay Area." Andrew A. Berkeley, CA
