Welcome! For same day appointments: please cell or text Megan at 510-542-1391. Testimonial: "I I just had my first Berkeley massage with Megan. It felt wonderful - she has a great touch and it is obvious that she understands and can communicate with the muscles. I feel so refreshed. Megan also took extra time to help me realize that my work set up is creating unnecessary tension in one side of my body. Ask her for free ergonomic tips which can save you money. I highly recommend Megan."

Ask Megan to explain why when you call!
At Warm Stone Massage my aspiration is that your visit or regular massage time will be both pleasant & truly effective. To accomplish this, I take time at the beginning of every session to listen carefully so that I can tailor the massage to fit exactly what you need that day. My goal is that you will leave feeling integrated and deeply relaxed. Deep peace and stillness are elusive experiences in our busy lives - but possible. Accordingly, my intention is to create a complete experience for you that will ease away your tension and pain and provide a magical "time out" that will infuse you with enhanced well being and inspiration in the week ahead.
My specialty is a deeply healing therapeutic, warm stone massage or relaxation session that is focused in whatever way you feel you need the most. My training includes Swedish Massage, Deep Tissue Massage, Sports Massage and Warm or Hot Stone Massage.
I believe that to the extent people repress their pain they also repress their joy. With a regular massage or series of massage sessions, you can expect to experience greater levels of joy and confidence. Massage as self care increases your effectiveness in all areas of your life. Studies show that massage improves cognitive response which affects problem solving ability. One client who was a scientist told me that he solved a difficult problem he had been working on for several days within a few hours of his massage.
I am so delighted that you have visited me on the web and I look forward to meeting you soon in my beautiful North Berkeley office at 1285 Gilman. Parking is free and easy to find. Please be sure to make an appointment soon!
