I have been a licensed massage therapist since 1995, a graduate of Sarasota School of Massage Therapy in Florida. I am also a graduate of Just For Your Health Massage School, in San Jose. With over 1500 hours of education, I am trained in Swedish, Deep Tissue, Shiatsu, Acupressure, and Reiki. I blend these modalities in my massage practice, pulling out the “tools”, so to speak, as needed.

Over the years I have worked with a wide range of clients, from expectant mothers, to professional athletes, to seniors over 80. I have successfully treated people with insomnia, arthritis, headaches, migraines, muscle soreness, neck pain, fibromyalgia, TMJ, chronic pain, sciatica, rotator cuff injury, and general stress.

I am professional and personable, attentive to the comfort and well being of each client. My years of experience have honed my massage skills beyond the basics; I work with the whole body, as well as the problem area, with the intention of guiding the client into a state of balance and flow.


Client Testimonials:

“For over two years Linda Gerson has been my personal body worker. She provides professional and personal care that has helped keep my body optimized and stress minimized. Consistency in care and understanding unique body needs are critical in massage care. I would rate Linda high on that quality. Having a calm environment and a safe place to let go of stress is something that she always provides. I have happily referred many of my own patients to Linda knowing that they will have an equal experience.”
