John Tacchi, CMT
Professional Bodywork

Recently I moved to the Marin and started getting recommendation for massage therapists in the area, that's how I got referred to John by a mutual patient. His anatomy knowledge about human body and body motion makes him capable of assessing your muscular issues in detail and during his therapy he is very skilled in focusing, finding problematic spots and working those areas throughout the session.
I have been very satisfied with his work so far and definitely recommend him if you're looking for a CMT in Marin

I receive weekly BODYWORK by John Tacchi. He successfully targets my injured areas, specifically-- my 
hands and my thumbs as well as my neck and cranial. The noted benefits include reduced swelling, pain, and spasms while increasing blood flow. Mr. Tacchi uses finger pressure to my trigger points (painful irritated areas in my muscles) to break cycles of spasm and pain. Finally, he releases chronic stress areas due to misalignment, repetitive motions, and past lingering injuries. I highly recommend Mr. John Tacchi and I am most grateful and honored to receive his highly-effective bodywork. MANY THANKS, John for your continued healing and corrective Bodywork !

Best massage I've ever had in Marin!  If you're in need of some self care go see John. -Kimberley R


I highly recommend John Tacchi for his expertise in massage therapy.  He is very knowledgeable in anatomy.  And his hands really can open up muscle knots.  The best massage therapist in Marin County for injuries and sports recovery. -L.A.


Super solid treatment- John is thorough and has a great touch.   Highly recommended for athletic/active treatments. -M.L.


I just had a first massage by John Tacchi, CMT and could not wait to write the review. As a former athlete and now personal trainer I have been to many different therapists, but John is by far the best in every respect. If you are considering massage then you must try him, he will exceed your expectations. -Sylvia K.


Highly Recommended - Mr Tacchi is an excellent CMT, he conducted himself professionally and the massage room was also very private, and nice. I had a remedial massage, and the massage really helped ease the pain. The oil that was used was of good quality. -Suna


Very professional and relaxing. Feel much better after. -Samantha


He knows his stuff. I'm so happy to have found him! - Eliza


An excellent massage practitioner who gave a therapeutic and wonderful massage. - Ellen


Excellent bodywork massage! I felt wonderful afterwards!  - Marilyn


professional and pleasant massage therapist - Shirley 


John is knowledgeable and effective. A persistent pain in my back is almost completely gone! - Julia


John was very adept, conscientious, sensitive, and knowledgeable in his massage treatment for me. He provided not only a very effective and relaxing massage, but also a lot of information about my muscles and tendons related to my pain and what to do to reduce/eliminate that pain. I left very relaxed and it made my entire day very relaxed. In addition, the pain in my side that he addressed was substantially reduced. -Richard


John has a quiet, warm, thoughtful, genuine manner and his massage was one of the best I’ve had. He asked about areas of my body that needed attention and told me to let him know if the pressure was right. He’s very knowledgeable about muscles, tendons, etc. and gave me important helpful info & advice. I’ll certainly be returning! -Ginnie J.


John does a great job of listening to what I think I need from my session and prescribing a massage to address my accumulated aches and pains. I left the session feeling completely relaxed and felt considerable relief from an ongoing overuse injury. -Lisa H.


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.


  John is very professional, has in depth knowledge and understanding of human anatomy and physiology, does excellent gentle or strong deep tissue work.  He is a great listener.  His website is very easy to make appointments.  He has a clean, relaxing space to do his work, easy parking in San Anselmo.  John helped me immensely with the severe pain I was having in my shoulder, upper back, and rib area - all from past injuries.  He also recommended an excellent Yoga studio in Novato which I followed up on and this company is excellent.  I highly recommend John if you've had injuries and need deep tissue work to relieve pain or if you just want a relaxing overall massage. -Linda W.
  My experience getting body work done for back, shoulder and neck pain, throughout the years had been less than what I was hoping for. I'd walk out of many a session with little to no improvement and feel massage must just not be that beneficial for my situation.
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)
-Daria B.
  John is amazing! Even after the hardest days of training or biggest crashes, he can fix me up and get me back out on the bike. It's definitely been a HUGE help this season!  -Kate Courtney (North American and Pan-American Mountain Bike Champion, [edit] World Champion and World Cup Champion)
  John is amazing at what he does. He is very knowledgeable, especially with structure and how it applies to the body. He can effectively focus on a specific area or problem as well. I always feel great after a session and I would not hesitate to recommend him to anyone - everyone could benefit from his services!  -J Kembikian

  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 enjoyed his explanation 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.
