~Testimonials~

As a Psychologist who specialized in treating chronic pain patients I have been extremely impressed with Jen’s approach and technique in treating my own chronic pain. She has that rare gift of intuitive touch that separates the exceptional from the average practitioner. She has made a huge difference in my quality of life.
— Stewart T., Palo Alto, CA
I have been going to Jen for almost a year now and she always knows when there’s something different. Even before I say anything, she’ll find that knot or strain that I didnt realize was there. She is well educated on how the body works and treats you like a caring physical therapist.
— Arnold M., Daly City, CA
I’d strongly recommend CTM. Jen clearly knows what she is doing and was able to customize the massage therapy to address all the issues I had that day, some very stubborn and previously painful spots in my upper back. Overall the experience was hassle-free, relaxing (despite some pretty intense working out of knots in several muscles), and totally worth it.
