Services We Provide
In addition to stress and tension relief, massage has many medical benefits. While massage is no replacement for a doctor's visit when illness occurs, massage may be used to mend or expedite muscle healing and boost the immune system.
Athletes have some of the highest injury rates among all professions. Some of these issues don't occur immediately but appear after some time (even after one stops playing the sport). Our sports massages are both restorative and preventative in regards to acute / major muscle injury.
We follow Dr. David Weinstock's philosophy that most injuries and dysfunctions can be corrected with the use of Neurokinetic Therapy ®. We use NKT® for a variety of conditions, including: low back pain, carpal tunnel syndrome, neck pain, and other areas needing rehabilitative therapy.
The hard-to-reach muscles deep beneath your skin's surface are those that offer the most discomfort when tense or injured. Our trained & licensed therapists will release the knots and tensions and promote wellness & healing even after only one session. As one of the most common forms of massage therapy, deep tissue massage provides benefits to almost all individuals.
Trigger points are built-up 'imperfections' covering muscles all over your body. When left untreated, they prevent your muscles from efficiently working together and can lead to great levels of discomfort, tension, hindered mobility, and even pain. Trigger point therapy locates and releases these imperfections to promote a restored state of balance and healthy muscle operation.
Our team of licensed practitioners has in-depth training on therapeutic massage techniques from all over the world. We provide Oakland the benefits of rehabilitative massage & proven techniques to relieve stress and enhance performance. No matter the condition of your body, massage will provide you significant benefit. Our massage sessions are custom-tailored to what you specifically wish to achieve in your session.
A Word From a Happy Client
I've been working as a massage therapist full time for over 10 years in the Bay area. I've traded work with close to a hundred massage therapists in that time.
Adriene Saltzberg at Mend surprised me with her skill, the quality of her touch, and her knowledge. Mind you, I was expecting good work, I had a pretty good idea of her training and we have talked before about her work, so I was expecting solid "A" work when I went in today. What I got was remarkable across the board.
I have a shoulder that's been dislocated in the past, a back injury that's over 30 years old and a hip that's starting to act up (I sound like an old man don't I?). I'm also not a small body, which can be more challenging to work with. Adrienne addressed every issue I mentioned (and a few that I had forgotten that she skillfully found) directly, precisely and with an understanding that was both comprehensive and compassionate.
The space is slightly tricky to get to (come in on the west side of the building) but once you get up to the second floor where Mend is located, the decor and furnishings are comfortable and attractive.
