Testimonials from local athletes:
I’ve had many massages in my life. In my tennis playing days I used to have two to three a week. Multiply that by 15 years on tour and many more since I retired. The first massage I had from Pat ranked in the Top 5, and that from someone who had no prior knowledge of my body, my injuries or trigger points. I highly recommend Patricia to anyone who is looking for a deep, therapeutic, healing massage.
Gigi Fernandez ~ Professional Tennis Player
I’ve been a professional climber for almost 20 years. Over the years I’ve seen a litany of health care professionals for numerous injuries that I have incurred. Patti is hands down one of the best people I have ever seen. She understands athletes and our bodies, and knows how to help us get back into the game. I began seeing her about a knee injury. After she helped with that, she started working on other problem spots with great results. She helped me start climbing again and is now a key component to my training regime. I have a handful of doctors and PT’s that I would travel large distances to see, and Patti is on that list.
Beth Rodden ~ Professional Rock Climber
I’ve been rock climbing seriously for nearly 20 years, and have recently begun to feel some ill effects from all the intense physical activity. I saw several professionals over the last year and a half in an attempt to address a truly troublesome tightness and imbalance in my upper back and neck, and Patti was the first person to really have a big impact. She’s totally awesome, and I couldn’t recommend someone more for her awareness of soft tissue needs, especially for athletic and active people.
Randy Puro ~ Professional Rock Climber
I’m a competitive swimmer with a high-stress career and a cervical fusion. Patti has helped me resolve serious and chronic neck, upper back, shoulder, and elbow pain, and she’s improved my power and flexibility. My training time is limited, and recovery from training takes longer in my 40s than it did in my teens. But regular sessions with Patti keep me strong and pain-free, so that I can get the most benefit–and the most fun–out of my time in the pool and the Bay.
Juliet Cox ~ 2013 United States Masters Swimming 10K National Champion (W45-49)
I’m a brown belt in Brazilian Jiu Jitsu, I compete in tournaments at least four times a year. As an amateur athlete, my training time is limited and valuable. My chiropractor recommended Patricia when i had a clavicle, first rib, pectoral minor injury as a result of a strenuous sparring session. It was preventing me from being able to train at a level that would prepare me for the tournaments I was supposed to participate in. With her help I was able to return to training in a manner that has enabled me to not only compete in some of the bigger Brazilian Jiu Jitsu tournaments in America, but also stand at the top of the medal podium at them. I have been visiting her before and after my tournaments to help me with my recovery efforts, I feel it has aided my training immensely.
