“Touching hands aren’t like pharmaceuticals or scalpels. They are flashlights in a darkened room. The medicine they administer is self-awareness.” - from Job’s Body by Dean Juhan
Smiling Dog is proud to offer massage therapy from highly-trained and experienced professionals with appointment booking available at your fingertips. Our treatment room has a nestled, cozy feeling inside, yet it’s conveniently located in downtown San Luis Obispo with easy access to parking. You can relax before or after your appointment at our lovely courtyard cafe or take one of our amazing classes before your appointment. Massage is an effective way help heal the body, release pain, tension, and holding patterns that limit mobility and happiness in day to day life.
Recently we have added Thai Massage which is a wonderful therapy that is a system of massage and assisted stretching developed in Thailand. It is influenced by the traditional medicine systems of India, China, and Southeast Asia. It is comprised of passive stretching and acupressure specifically tailored to their body's needs. It is wonderful for those looking to increase and improve muscle tone, improve nervous system, improve circulation of the lymphatic system, decrease inflammation, blockage and stagnation, improve range of motion and improve digestion (decreasing feelings of gas, pain, indigestion, acidity). Appointment request by email or phone.
