I am a California Certified Massage Therapist practicing Integrative Massage in Alameda, CA. My massage style is “integrative” in the sense that I combine techniques from Swedish, Shiatsu, deep tissue, trigger point, and other massage modalities, balancing muscle care with a focus on deep relaxation. I have logged thousands of hours as a massage therapist in a variety of settings including the Claremont Spa in Berkeley, The Ivy Tree Massage & Muscle Care in Marblehead, MA, and at my current location tucked away within Radiant Life Chiropractic here in Alameda.
A few words from my clients…
“Norene gave me the best massage I’ve ever had. I had been struggling with a stiff neck and back for over month, and had 2 other massages that did not result in any long term results. Norene spent 30 minutes — and like magic, my neck and back were healed! I highly recommend her and will be back.” -Theresa
“5 star massage all around. I have never felt so comfortable getting a massage; from her personalized questions and technique to the nice location with easy parking. Very affordable, quality care, I am now taking better care of myself thanks to Norene and her fantastic skills. I have had horrible back and muscle spasms from injuries, stress and arthritis and Norene has all but made them vanish. I am a very happy regular client now.” -Cynthia
“She was awesome.” -Oyenda
“So glad I got a gift card from my friend! What a great massage and felt like she reached each area that I was having some problems with.” -Patti
“One of the VERY best massages I have ever had!!!! Norene listened to what my particular issues were, including a very painful wrist injury I suffered the week before and was able to intuit where I needed a little extra work. The results were instantaneous, I walked out feeling like the reset button had been pushed, & my wrist stopped hurting the very next day (Seriously!). I cannot recommend her enough & am jumping at the chance to have her work on me again! Also, worth noting, Norene has a super pleasant demeanor and a voice that seems to dissolve stress:)” -Andrea
“Thank you again for the wonderful shiatsu massage… it was profoundly healing. You are truly gifted in this practice. See you again next week.” -Mary
