After only two sessions, the constant
"After tearing a muscle in my lower back, I was unable to stand for more than 5 minutes at a time or get up out of a chair without intense pain.
I was also completely unable to bend forward to touch my toes. I experienced low grade pain in my back most of the time. To seek relief, I tried everything - - chiropractic visits, physical therapy, stretching, rest, exercise, anti-inflammatories, pain killers - - and nothing seemed to help. With massage therapy as my last option, I began corrective bodywork with Jason. Immediately following the first session, I was able to touch my toes! After only two sessions, the constant pain stopped, I am now able to stand for extended periods of time relatively pain-free and am able to get out of a chair with no pain whatsoever. I highly recommend this healer - you will see results."

Within a hour he had my neck feeling back
"Over the years I have seen dozens of massage therapists, always looking for just the right one. Finally, after straining my neck so badly I couldn't turn my head, I turned to Jason. Within an hour he had my neck feeling back to normal. His knowledge of anatomy, and his spot-on technique has made Jason far more invaluable to me than the combined skills of physical therapists and chiropractors. I've been a client for three years. And though I now live in the East Bay, I still make the trek to the Peninsula to see Jason."

I just felt so much looser, more relaxed and comfortable after ten minutes.
"I’ve been in denial for some time that my neck is really hurting me. Then by sheer chance Jason had a client who did not show up and offered to massage a few of us for ten minutes each instead. Almost immediately he found a sore spot on my shoulder and started working on it right away. He talked me through relaxing into it and releasing the tensions. He kept going. I just felt so much looser, more relaxed and comfortable after ten minutes. I slept more soundly that night and decided to treat myself to a half hour massage the following week. After a full half hour session I felt like a new younger version of myself-I felt great, like a big weight had been lifted from my shoulders. Jason has great big powerful hands that just work down through layer after layer of discomfort to reveal a newer you. "
Besides fixing the problems I bring him, Jason is also great at educating me on the cause and effects of how I use my body to prevent future injury.
"I have a history of injuring my back, shoulders and arm. The worst was an inury to my arm, at which time I went to a whole series of doctors, including an orthopedic surgeon, went through physical therapy, and had cortisone shots, none of which helped. I could hardly lift my arm for months, and was not sure it would ever get better. Jason, with a lot of deep tissue work fixed the problem, and I have never again had a problem in that arm. He has also helped me with injuries to my back and shoulders. I used to be in pain a lot of the time for years, and now am finally pretty much without any pain, I have been a client of Jasons for around 10 years now. Besides fixing the problems I bring him, Jason is also great at educating me on the cause and effects of how I use my body to prevent future injury. He also usually gives me exercises I can do to help make the injuries go away. You always feel that if you go to Jason, he will find a way to fix whatever problem you have, and that you will go away feeling good again."

Jason Chan's expertise with shoulder and neck issues is FABULOUS!
"I have been using the massage service almost weekly at Avenidas for years. And while the general massages are terrific, Jason Chan's expertise with shoulder and neck issues is FABULOUS! I am experiencing definite improvement with my shoulder situation."

I was diagnosed with arthritis in my hips and told there was no cure.
"Before I met Jason, I could only walk a few blocks without pain in my hip and leg and I could only manage the treadmill for 3-5 min. I was diagnosed with arthritis and told there was no cure. Then, I met Jason, who thought part of the problem was muscular. He did a lot of stretching movements on my legs and also gave me stretching exercises to do at home. After a half dozen sessions, I went from walking a few blocks to walking a mile and I could use the treadmill for 10 min. with no pain. Thanks, Jason!"

Where medical doctors and chiropractors failed to help, Jason was able to work wonders.
"I started seeing Jason Chan after a fairly major auto accident I was
involved in. I was rear ended at high-speed and had whiplash (neck),
shoulder and low-back pain. Where medical doctors and chiropractors failed
to help, Jason was able to work wonders. Over a period of less than five
months seeing Jason twice a week at first and then once a week after a few
months, Jason was able to relieve all of my pain. He used a combination of
different message techniques and varied his treatments to focus on different
areas as required. Not only did I feel 100% better in a short period of
time, Jason also showed my techniques to improve my posture, improve how I
sit at the computer, and other items to make my general health better. I
highly recommend Jason, not only for general message, but for treatment
after muscle injuries or strains.

The next morning when for the first time in a very long time- I didn't wake up with a neck ache!
"Thanks for the most informative, hands-on and helpful "Ultimate Neck & Shoulder Massage" workshop. We both felt a loosening of the tightness and then the release. This is a great gift. The proof of your skill and caring appeared the next morning when for the first time in a very long time- I didn't wake up with a neck ache! We now know what to do to help each other."
Luisa & Dave A., San Mateo
No back pain whatsoever!
"My Tuesday stress test went splendidly. No back pain whatsoever. I was able to relax in spite of the extreme artificiality of the test. The cardiologist was impressed with my progress. Thanks
again for your expertise. I couldn't have done it without you."
Loren R., Portola Valley
I go to Jason when I need a serious Sports Massage
"As someone who has been massaged in world class spas all over the
Country I can tell you that Jason is at the very top. Only Esalen
massage done in Big Sur even comes close. I go to Jason when I need a
serious sports massage after training or performance. I know of no
comparable massage in the Bay Area."
