Certified Massage Therapist (CMT)
Certified Manual Lymph Drainage Therapist (CMLDT)
I know the healing power of therapeutic massage can be a path to your improved physical and mental health, because it’s true for me personally.
As a lifelong proponent of movement, I’ve spent many years in demanding creative athletic practices as a professional circus artist, a yoga teacher, a dancer and a fitness instructor. During this time, regular massage therapy appointments provided me with improved range of motion, less soreness, increased mobility and enhanced agility — all of which sparked my interest in the innate healing wisdom of the body.
That is what inspired me to become a massage therapist.
A Certified Massage Therapist since 2005, I have helped thousands of individuals return to their normal, active lives. I’ve worked with pregnant women, new moms, older adults, post-surgical patients, athletes, professional performance artists, outdoor adventurers, dancers and even office workers bound to their desks for too many hours a day. I am always interested in finding out what brings more length, movement and vitality to tissue as well as what brings ease and relief to overall stress and tension in the body.
If you live in San Francisco and the Bay Area, I will bring my massage table to your home. Let’s work together to help get your body back in balance!

WHAT CLIENTS SAY
I've been seeing Amy for many years. She always does wonders on my shoulders. I've had other therapists in the past, but never gotten the results I get from Amy.
Amy Olson is the most competent and skilled massage therapist I have ever had work on the trauma from my car accident and painful scar tissue from my Caesarian sections, not to mention that good old mom/woman tension that has built up during the last years. I cannot recommend her enough.
I appreciate Amy’s knowledge, attentiveness and patience, and also her knowledge of anatomy and body work techniques. Her structural integration work eases the constriction and discomfort caused by the imbalance in my spine…and a chronic tightness in my lower back has been relieved.
Amy has worked wonders on my body. I am a professional skier, so my body has experienced a lot of trauma. I first started seeing her after a series of knee surgeries. She kept my body in line as I dealt with the issues of being on one leg and crutches for months.
Amy has eased the pain and swelling of my lymphedema flare-ups years after breast cancer surgery and also has helped with my chronic back pain. Her massage sessions also significantly ease my anxiety as I wrestle with the many baffling aspects of aging.
I had been suffering severe chronic leg pains for several months. I was at wit’s end, after seeing chiropractors and top back doctors to no avail. Amy was able to understand and treat the problem with her skillful massage techniques, with amazing results!
When I had some issues with tendonitis, Amy’s work exceeded my expectations for what a massage therapist could do for long-term recovery. Amy has very strong fingers and hands, and offers a patient and loving touch.
