My work is very holistic in nature and each treatment is customized according to what your body is needing. I will address specific areas of concern while also encouraging the vital health and movement of all of your body systems including the central nervous system, circulatory system, organs, muscles, bones and fascia. In this way many health issues, chronic pain, old injuries, underlying stress and patterns of disease are naturally addressed. Individuals experience long sought relief from pain and come away feeling more deeply restored as the work allows the body a re-set or new way of being.

Hi I’m Darren Yee. I specialize in Deep Tissue, Sports Massage, Myofascial Release, chronic pain from head to toe including back pain, hip pain, calf pain, tennis elbow etc. I release the tendons near the bones where sensors (Golgi Tendon organs) tell the muscle to stay tight. I release muscles that are hard to get to like the iliacus and psoas for the low back, and the multifidis, rotatores and omohyoid for the upper back, trapezius and headaches. I use fingers as well as elbows and forearms which is what you deserve. I have developed a deep tissue technique involving cross friction in areas with adhesions and scar tissue.

Biodynamic Bodywork developed in my practice throughout the years to help people with their unique and specific pain patterns. I specialize in Lymph Drainage Therapy (LDT) to support the fluids and detoxification, and work with cancer patients to diminish the side effects of chemo therapy and lymph edema. Because LDT is very gentle, it helps diminish swelling and pain after surgery, including plastic surgery. Very importantly LDT boosts the immune system.

Who can practice massage in California?
Most states have licensing requirements that must be met before a practitioner (a 'masseuse' or 'masseur') can use the title 'Massage Therapist', and some states require a license to practice any form of massage. Licensed Massage Therapists in California have obtained the highest level of authentication. They must complete academic coursework in anatomy and physiology, as well as on the application of massage and bodywork, business and ethics, and specialized massage techniques. The California LMT must then pass a certification exam.

What are the benefits of California massage?
Clients use massage in California because it relieves pain from muscle aches and sprains, muscle injuries and other causes of pain. It reduces stress and helps clients relax, and can decrease feelings of anxiety and depression by stimulating the release of endorphins and serotonin. Massage therapy in California can help prevent fibrosis or scar tissue, increase the flow of lymph, and improve sleep. California massage therapy can help rehabilitate sports injuries.

How does massage work?
Massage involves working and acting on the body using pressure from the hands, fingers, elbows, knees, forearm, or feet of the massage therapist. The California massage therapist focuses on muscles, tendons, ligaments, myofacia, skin, joints, or other connective tissue, as well as lymphatic vessels, or organs of the gastrointestinal system.
