Body Rest Massage
Feeling Better is only a Touch Away

Testimonials

Donna is amazing once again! Years ago I was in a car accident and suffered a choking sensation in my throat as well tight painful muscles in my neck and shoulders that would not let go and relax.

Donna worked on me for several sessions and finally the muscles around my throat relaxed and I didn't feel that choking sensation anymore! Now, I am having jaw tension issues and am very worried that it will lead to TMJ. I'm already getting some symptoms, such as swollen gums, soreness in the jaw, all from my clenching and grinding.  I use a mouth guard at night and when really stressed a day guard.  Well, after one session with Donna, I feel an improvement in my jaw.  I have less tension and less pain and will definitely go back for more face, neck and shoulder massages weekly until my jaw completely relaxes.  Thank you so much Donna! You are amazing.

Go see Javier!!! My back was killing me so I went to see Javier. It was my first time getting a massage from him and it was absolutely amazing. I have received many massages from good and bad therapists so I can say he is one of the best. The pressure was perfect and the atmosphere was very relaxing. What I liked most was that he was very knowledgeable when I asked him questions. Little did he know I was quizzing him. ;) He really knows his stuff!

Donna is Great! She really keeps up with the newest massage techniques and constantly renews herself. She loves what she does and it really shows. The massage room is totally comfortable and relaxing and she caters to every your every need. A very personal feeling comes across that is genuine. It is just a pleasure to know Donna and I wish to god I could see her more often! Keep up the great work Donna....  - Sean S

I had a massage by Javier and it was absolutely one of the best I've ever had. He was super professional, asked questions to find out my needs, and zeroed in on my problem areas. Since my massage, I've been functioning 300% better. It only took me about a half hour to book my next one, and I can't wait for it!

I've been seeing Donna for deep tissue massage for over 10 years. And she gives the best deep tissue massage I have ever found. Highly reccomended.

I feel that Donna’s massage has helped in my healing process. I was able to squeeze my fist without discomfort after suffering form constant pain. My pain is definitely less than prior to Donna’s work. My shoulders feel much better! Donna’s massage has helped my comfort level tremendously.  Overall, I am very happy with her massage and continue to see her for my body’s health and wellness.  - Jim A

I come here regularly to see Javier! He's absolutely amazing - he listens to my needs and suggests reasons as to why my body might be aching and what I can do at home to help ease tension between my visits =) 

He's so friendly and I feel super comfortable with him. I was sort of unsure about seeing a male massage therapist, but during these massages with him, all I feel are my muscles melting away! He's so focused during the entire session, and gives the BEST pressure! 

**********
I was never a believer in getting regular massages; to me it seemed unnecessary. But looking back, I was crazy for thinking that!!! Lol. I feel such a dramatic difference on a daily basis since I've been coming in for regular sessions with Javier. I have more energy, I can sleep better, and that makes for a happier me =]   Yeah, you're spending some money - but you're not spending money on some kind of unnecessary pampering, you're spending it on your body's wellness. And it's worth every hard earned penny! 

Give this place a shot, and ask for Javier. You will NOT regret it!!!! =)

This is a review for the wonderful CMT, Javier Marquez. He is extremely skilled with his techniques and has a strong background in Kinesiology. Javier combines his therapeutic work with intuition and can find any knot, adhesion or issue and help make your life so much better. I recommend making him part of your wellness plan for massage therapy. Whether you are interested in Deep Tissue, Trigger Point Therapy, Swedish, Shiatsu or Thai Massage, Javier is the perfect therapist. Try him out :)

I found Donna at BodyRest by accident but ever since, it’s no accident I recommend her to everyone I know! Donna provides her clients with far more than what we think of as “massage.” Yes, the experience is deeply relaxing, the environment serene and comfortable, and Donna is considerate and friendly. But she is so much more! I had no idea how truly therapeutic and educational a session with Donna can be (if I choose). Donna is exceptionally skilled at finding problem areas, identifying the true sources of the problem, and knows how to treat them. I am thoroughly impressed with her skill, knowledge and passion for her craft—truly, her understanding of body mechanics combined with her great skill and talent makes her a massage therapist like none other. Whether you’re looking for a way to unwind and relax after a stressful week, or have a medical issue needing skilled massage therapy, visit Donna at BodyRest—you’ll never be the same and you’ll be thankful for it! –  Shadia H

Donna is the only massage therapist I've ever been to who actually fixes what's wrong with my body instead of just making me feel relaxed. Go Donna! - Hillarie C

My shoulders use to always be stiff and my legs used to get numb now and then.  Since I have been seeing Donna once a month for the past 9 years my shoulders feels much looser and I no longer have any numbness in my legs.  I realize now,  that I don't have all of those aches or pain anymore.  Massage really works.  - Marie K

I was recommended to Donna by my physical therapist.  In twenty years, I had not found a massage therapist who could deal successfully with my knee and leg problems.  Donna's work has made all the difference, and I walk much better now than I did two years ago.  I could not have been better looked after. - David B

“During my pregnancy I was having severe sciatic pain to the point where it was difficult to walk. After a 60 minute massage with Donna I had significant pain relief and it went away complete within a couple of days. She possesses tremendous knowledge and skill in many massage modalities, allowing her to use whatever is most helpful for her clients at the time. I would recommend her in a heart-beat!” - Paula H

are second to none." Curtis H

"My daughter referred me to Donna and I am so grateful. I have finally found someone who does excellent deep tissue massage. Donna has helped me heal from an injury to my left leg by focusing her massage work on the areas where I have had the most pain and tightness but she has also helped me understand what was going on with my muscles and the ways in which I could help myself. Thanks to her, I have improved greatly
and am almost back to normal." Loretta P

"I have been seeking massage therapy for the past 9 years to help with stress and tension release. Approximately 1 1/2 years ago, I found Donna in an acute situation and have not looked back. She is not only professional, but also extremely aware and in tune with my massage needs. The techniques she uses and pressure she applies is always done with care and consideration. I would recommend her to anyone (and have already done so)!" Denise B

OK, so I believe it's now about 5 or 6 years that I've been seeing Donna for deep tissue massage. I had been looking for a great deep tissue person and would try a place and be disappointed, and than I found Donna :).

Donna is HANDS DOWN THE BEST DEEP TISSUE! person.

I've tried at least 6 other locations in the bay area, and none compare, once I found Donna, I've never gone elsewhere! She is truly amazing.

I've referred quite a few people and they all agree with me, the best deep tissue they're ever had too!

Her studio is very private, quiet, and serene.

She is quiet when you want quiet and will respond to questions when you talk.  

I HIGHLY reccomend her with no reservations at all. 

And a truly sweet person too!  Eileen B

I have been a client for over two years.  She is a wonderful massage therapist.  Everyone I have referred to her has really enjoyed her experience as well.  She is consistent from week to week.  She has so much knowledge that she can pamper, or really work hard into the muscles depending on what mood I am in.  If you choose to go to her you will really enjoy the massage as well.
