I have experienced a good many massages from different therapists. And as a Certified Massage Therapist myself, I'm very particular on what I expect from my session. John listens very carefully to me and we discuss what I would like done, the areas that needed extra attention. He is a very gifted and highly skilled Massage Therapist. He is someone I trust because he has great instincts and understands exactly what I need. Our line of work is very demanding to our bodies and when I have to have any strong, therapeutic bodywork done, I'd go to John. -Vicki Z
I have been very satisfied with John's body work over the years. My job is pretty physically demanding and his knowledge, skills and focus on my shoulder and lower back pain, as needed, have helped me a great deal. He's very professional and reliable. I highly recommend him. -J.G.
I've had many massages from John and highly recommend him. He listens well to things coming up in my body - has more training in kinesiology/anatomy than any other bodyworker I've come across - and does a great job explaining the mechanics of how I can keep the healing momentum going at home with stretches, etc. -Mary G.
3 years ago I first experienced true improvement and lessening of my pain. when I happened to get John Tacchi for my first session at Massage Envy in San Rafael, Ca. I was able to move my body and its parts (!) with more ease and less stiffness and pain. My only complaint was that there was always a lengthy waiting list and over a week or weeks' wait to get a massage appt. with him, there. I later learned that he had opened up his own CMT business and was practicing at an office he used at Whole Athlete in San Anselmo. I've also since had a few in home sessions which make bodywork beyond convenient and logistically helpful. "Have table, will travel" is a large part of his current practice!
I cannot recommend, highly enough, his skill, years of experience and ability to teach you about what's best for the health of your body, spirit and mind as he applies his knowledge through well trained hands and brain, as a healer and excellent certified massage therapist (CMT).
Enjoyed John's chair massage. As one who works at the computer TOO MUCH - it was a well needed treat for my muscles! Go! Go! Go! Don't delay! Your neck, arms, back and shoulders need this. -Danielle T.
John was professional, sensitive and focused . I really enjyed his explanatin of what might be wrong with the tenderness in my back. I will certainly go back. -Kaye S.
I just had my first massage with John, and it will not be my last! His touch is firm but not harsh and he uses pressure points, massage and joint manipulation (kind of like a physical therapist) in perfect harmony to make your back, arms and shoulders feel fabulous! -Debbie
John's chair massage was well worth the 15 minute session. I was impressed with the upper body massage, which included my arms, hands and back. I look forward to being a weekly customer. -Janet B.
