As we chatted about my aches and pains, Tricia really listened, like genuinely cared about my needs and crafted a treatment just for me.

Corey LYON F. VENICE CA. May 2, 2023 Tricia is quite simply the best massage therapist around. She has been working on me for years and I will not go to anyone else. Tricia has resolved several otherwise intractable physical issues for me. Her space is very nice and she is a stellar human being. I would give her 100 stars if I could.
Erin A. Walnut Creek Oct 24, 2022 Gifted, intuitive and just magical...that sums up Tricia and her work. Tricia takes time to ask questions and truly understand your ailments and issues. She is holistic in her approach and is humble about her knowledge. She finds a source of discomfort and gently but purposefully works on it and afterwards educates you about it. She doesn't give a traditional, "scripted" massage; instead she provides personalized, intentional bodywork. Tricia truly has magical, healing hands. I don't mind traveling from the Bay Area, but I wish I lived closer so I can experience her work more often!
Christina P. Costa Mesa, CA 11/23/2022 My absolute favorite massage therapist in LA! Not only does she know her stuff but has helped me tremendously with structural issues in my neck and back that I have been suffering with for over 20 years AND she really cares. A true gem!!
7/16/2018 .Tricia is not only a talented massage therapist but she truly understands and cares about your needs. She knows many different techniques to relax your muscles and ultimately give you an overall relaxing experience. I have scoliosis so my muscles are being pulled in all different directions. I've had pain for 5 months now and have tried many different avenues to relieve my pain but have had little success. I recently started going to Tricia and she has already begun to make my back feel less tight and achy. I feel really hopeful that she will help relieve my upper and middle back and neck pain the more I see her. She is also really sweet and easy to feel comfortable around. CHANEL BEVERLY HILLS
29/11/16 Tricia is so inviting - I felt comfortable immediately. Her massage space is equally warm and inviting. She took time to discuss how she works and asked what my needs / body issues were in an open dialogue.
I would love to work with her on a consistent basis, however I'm an out of towner who was fortunate enough to stumble upon other customers awesome reviews. She had a great suggestions on what I can do to help improve my body health.
Tricia is a gifted healer, listener and a pleasure to work with. I look forward to staying in touch in the future. B. Marie J Seattle
Kathryn C. Marina del Rey, CA 6/13/2023 \I've been going to Tricia regularly for several years now, so obviously I am a fan. I have had professional massages for many years, at top resorts around the world all the way down to very minimalist spas. Tricia is among the very best in my opinion. First, she clearly knows her stuff. She demonstrates deep knowledge of anatomy, and is expert in an unbelievable range of body work techniques. She also really listens to you and your feedback about both the current massage and the results from the last one, always building on that input in what she does next. She is scrupulous about hygiene, uses extremely high-quality ingredients, and is just a delight to be around! She could easily charge twice as much, but I really appreciate the fact that she makes her services affordable for those of us who need to see her on a regular basis for health reasons. I recommend Tricia without reservation - enjoy! With Tricia you are truly in great hands.
Jasmin B. Parkside, San Francisco, 7/9/2021 I've been to many massage therapists for back pain brought about by a bone marrow extraction surgery. Tricia is by far the most intuitive of the therapists I've had. She can literally tell the points in my body that are sore or in pain without me telling her. Her massages are intense but not painful and relaxing yet effective at breaking down the points of tension. I'm so thankful I found Tricia and now have a treatment plan that's working for me. She's also incredibly personable and kind. You'll love her!
July 2018 One of the best massages I've ever had! Personalized and different in the best way, it didn't feel like a choreographed "massage routine" like you find at many places. Really peaceful but at the same time, effective for pain. My back has been bothering me for a while and this is the first time I'm not aware of my lower back every time I move, she really helped me.
Tricia is also a lovely person. She's very easy to communicate with and really tailors the massage for both your physical and mental needs. She was able to get me in really quickly and I am so thankful, she was exactly what I needed. DEVON G. VENICE
27th June 2019 While visiting in April, I had sever SI pain. Tricia was amazing. I honestly don't think I would have survived without her healing techniques. She was very cautious not to overwork or overstimulate some muscles where she knew were in pain but could cause more damage. Tricia is a thoughtful and skilled practitioner and I would highly recommend her AND return. KELLI C. ST. CROIX
Kelly Z. Medford, M.A. 5/5/2022 I thank my lucky stars that I found Tricia! I was in a lot of pain in my low back, hips and whole body when I started working with Tricia due to chronic Lyme disease and Tricia helped me immensely! She takes the time to really understand what your issues are and what you need and then works her magic! She is very, very knowledgeable about the body and works to get to the root of your issues. Her hands are so healing and you can feel all of the love & healing she pours into your body. She is hands down one of the best massage therapists I've ever been to (and I've been to a lot!). She also makes sure to keep notes about your progress and checks in after your session to see how you are doing. Her space is quite beautiful & very clean. And most of all she has the most beautiful & caring heart! She cares so much about all of her clients (and about all of the animals in the world!) If you want to treat yourself book in with Tricia! Enjoy!
4/8/2018 Once again you've done magic!!!!!! After my massage yesterday I am feeling lighter, looser, and more relaxed. Thank you for being a life changer, and true healer! Ashley B. Makawau United States
7/30/2017 Tricia is my Healer! She knows the muscles and body so well, and I feel like a brand new person after I walk out. Seriously. I look like one too. She is also an incredible person and truly cares for her clients tailoring her technique to each individual body. I am generally very tight and sore because I do a lot of martial arts training. Trisha knows just how to handle all my knots and keep me healthy. I am so lucky to have found her and have been with her now for the last three years! She is also very affordable and I never have any trouble booking an appointment with her. :) Does not get better than Trisha! She is a true healer ! Brittany B. Marina Del Rey CA.
6/3/2017 This is long overdue since I started seeing Tricia since last fall after a shoulder surgery. It was taking a very long time to heal, and had developed frozen shoulder. Tricia worked carefully on my shoulder and arm in conjunction with my doc's physical therapy plan and I really think it is due to her amazing massage, either pinpointed and deep, or gentle as needed, that has helped me regain almost all of my movement over the past 8 months. She has a thorough knowledge of anatomy but also has great intuition about what areas need work. My shoulder started to get better as soon as I started seeing her. She also helped me with a hip and leg issue and is extremely focused on healing any issues you might have with patience and kindness. She truly goes above and beyond. She is a gem! Nancy H. Culver City
2/9/2016 Tricia is easily the best massage therapist of the many I've seen. She has her own unique technique which helps her intuitively seek out the areas of tension and restrictions in your body. To top it off, she's a wonderful person who genuinely cares about you and how you feel and is the absolute opposite of the kind of massage therapist who asks about your problem areas then just pretty rolls out their standard massage anyway. I've been seeing Tricia for six months or so now and every massage is different and customised to how my body is at that time and how it responds and I've seen a lot of improvement in various restrictions. The more you work with Tricia, the more she will figure out what works for you. Appointments are never rushed and the massage room is a little oasis of calm by the Marina. Most definitely 5 stars ! Anthony P. Venice California
3/30/2016 There are many choices available when it comes to massage therapy, and I've been to at least 10 therapists trying to find someone who really understands what works best for me. Consistently, Tricia goes above and beyond to provide unparalled therapy to relieve my neck and back pain. It's been almost a year since I first saw Tricia, and each and every time I am in Marina Del Rey I schedule a visit. I've never found anyone who can locate the source of my discomfort so quickly, and apply the proper technique to provide lasting relief!! I cannot recommend her highly enough, and I'm confident you'll have a similar experience. Plus she's super kind and funny, too! Thanks, Tricia!! MICHAEL SHIFFMAN , LAS VEGAS
12/2/2016 The amazing healer. I have been a client with her for over 3+years now and she has been amazing. Over the years she has even remembered what parts of my body are sore from working at a desk. She is friendly and very professional at same time. She uses amazing products like essential oils and great moisturizers. I appreciate the time she takes to understand my body's needs. She focuses on the ever changing details of my body's stress points, whether it's knots in my back or finding issues i never knew was there , like TMJ or hyperextension in the spine. She is great at what she does and I notice that massages from others don't even compare. I stayed at a pricey resort and felt the massage I got was nothing in comparison and yet more expensive Shanna M. Los Angeles
3/26/2016 Tricia is by far the best, most gifted massage therapist I have ever been too and certainly in Marina del Rey/LA area. Many other therapist I have been to in the LA area make you feel rushed and they just don't seem to be in touch with what your body needs from a massage standpoint. They keep thinking the same approach works for everyone... This is totally the opposite of the services Tricia provides me! I am an athlete, train multiple times a week and as a result I have my fair share of aches and pains. Tricia has a very unique way of listening and understanding what I need to address my various injuries or just simply relax. It is obvious she has been trained very well, by her experience to cross over various modalities of care depending on your needs - This experience along with her very caring and intuitive approach is what makes her special. I have referred her to several of my friends and everyone I know loves her. My only fear though is that she will get too busy and will more difficult to book as people start to realize that she is not with other Spa in the Marina anymore... Even if she does become busy like she has been working for other places, she is worth waiting for! Last, I am so glad to see she went out on her own and opened up her new place in Marina del Rey in the Oakwood Building - The foot bath, the steam room and the overall ambiance is just super relaxing and a great way to start the massage!

3/15/2015 Tricia is an extremely gifted massage therapist. It was very clear to me when I first found her that she has a natural gift as a healer. I then learned that her mother was also a massage therapist, so Tricia was literally born to do this! I have said in reviews before that I know massages, since I have been getting them regularly for 15+ years. Tricia has amazing intuition about the body and is extremely thoughtful in her approach. I always feel so much better after seeing her. She is also such an amazing, kind person! As a note to those reading this who see the Calabasas address, she does not work from that location anymore. She works from Marina del Rey now. The phone number that Yelp has listed is still correct, though. Again, I can't recommend Tricia highly enough. I am so lucky that I found her. LEIGH-ANNE L. , CULVER CITY
4/4/2015 As a result of my injury in 2005, I was going and paying for doctors and drugs to alleviate my neck and back pain. I started going to Tricia about 4 months ago and immediately I started to heal. As a result, I feel much more pain free.and more comfortable. My pain management specialist is amazed at the remarkable healing effects that Tricia's massage therapy has provided me. I continue to go to her as a maintenance program and I highly recommend her for anyone who has aches an pains... She is the only one who has for me with results! CHERYL H. MARINA DEL REY
6/18/2016 Just do it, book with Tricia, you will not regret it! Conscious, quality massage at rates that won't break the bank, excellent service and easy to book with...for now...until the word gets out...get in before her client list explodes. E.C. Redondo Beach.
4/10/2015 Well here's some good Karma. Whilst in the Marina area this weekend we bumped into Tricia parking. I had seen her maybe 6/7 times last year but on my last next visit the spa told me she had moved on and were very vague by design about where she was now. Tricia took us to her new spa which has a great view over the marina in the Oakwood building. It's brilliant. the room with a great atmosphere . I chose to have some of the blinds open to watch the harbour during some of my massage, but each to their own. As this is Tricia's own business she had more time with me and taught me a few things to work on , she really is attentive and her concerns for me were true. I like the fact that there is a steam room/ shower which the last place never had. Just to emphasise this is not a corporate type place. Very much a place to get healed. I am happy. .

5/25/2015 TRICIA is awesome!!!!!!! I mean really good. Both my husband and I see her regularly. She takes her job seriously and she has dealt with minor and major injuries between the two of us. Her space is calm and relaxing. Getting there for the first time is a bit tricky but don't worry you'll get the hang of it swiftly and hopefully make a habit of seeing her. She is not a surface therapist. She is very committed to her clients well-being. I suggest letting her know how and in what way you like to experience your massage. My husband and I want different things and she accommodates us both. We found a real gem with Tricia. KALI N. INGLEWOOD CA.
