Break through tension and stress.
The Motus Way:
Our massage style is designed and delivered with tremendous thought and care. This therapeutic style of work is geared towards enhancing the ever-present body-mind connection. Our therapists are equipped with knowledge and understanding of various massage modalities, including Swedish, deep tissue, sports, somatic trauma therapy, craniosacral work, and instrument-assisted therapies. Drawing from these diverse massage styles, each practitioner has the unique flexibility and wisdom to adjust and apply what is needed at the moment to achieve your specific therapeutic goals. Sometimes deep pressure applications are needed; sometimes softer pressure with a more meditative approach is called for. Whatever modality, sessions always begin with listening to ensure that we understand your needs and goals. Consistent bodywork often reveals and heals deeper and deeper layers, making it easier to live a more rejuvenated, pain-free life. Whether you are new to massage or someone looking to expand their knowledge about themselves, this work is for everyBODY.
Aaron always had an interest in movement and the body. At the age of 10, he began training in Martial Arts and continued his passion by teaching and training others in Martial Arts. Aaron learned about the importance of body mechanics to create effective, efficient, and safe movement through the discipline. He expanded his knowledge through the study of kinesiology at SFSU and shortly after, he enrolled at The National Holistic Institute (NHI) to study massage and neuromuscular therapy. The aim? To combine his passions of massage and fitness. He also concurrently became a certified personal trainer (CPT) through the National Association of Sports Medicine (NASM). His approach to massage blends all of his knowledge and passions in Kinesiology, Martial Arts, Personal training, and Massage Therapy to provide a unique blend of massage and fitness to each of Motus's clients.
In addition to chiropractic care, Motus offers fantastic massage. They have done a great job across the board with me -- while I've been injured, when I've needed serious deep tissue work, and when I've simply wanted to relax.
I would highly recommend Dr. Stephens and the Motus Clinic team. Professional, knowledgeable, a great facility in SF!
The team at Motus took the time to establish a strong, trusting relationship, and gave me confidence that I would get the care and attention I needed. Their work has solved the knee injuries that plagued me for years, and has also given me the tools and knowledge to stay healthy going forward.
YOU will benefit you no matter what your current experience level is. Whether you're a total beginner who is living a sedentary lifestyle or an advanced practitioner in fantastic shape with the strength of an ox - these classes will challenge and improve your flexibility, strength, and balance. The Instruction increases your body awareness, you don't have to think about anything else but your breathing, and moving in the way they tell you to. The poses gradually become more difficult as the class progresses. I would 100% recommend Motus Rehab Clinic to anyone looking for classes.
Motus Wellfulness Clinic is an out-of-network clinic that works with an upfront payment model. As clinicians passionate about providing the highest level of care, we’ve made the purposeful decision not to participate with health insurance programs. Doing so would make it exponentially more challenging for us to serve you; this is due to administrative overhead costs and claims processing times, along with the exhaustive disadvantages to a volume-based care model. Our goal is transparency: with us, what you see is what you get. If you have chiropractic and/or physical therapy insurance coverage, you can possibly receive reimbursement for your rehabilitation. We also accept Medical Reimbursement Account (MRA), Flexible Spending Account (FSA), and Health Savings Account (HSA) funds as methods of payment.
These are great for individuals who are new to Therapeutic Clinical Massage, or for someone who wants the focus of the work to be on one or two specific areas of concern.
In most cases, 60 minutes is the tip of the iceberg when dealing with chronic stress and pain. Having more time ultimately gives the therapist the opportunity to reveal and heal deeper layers. This is a great option both for those new to massage as well as experienced patients.
This is recommended for those who have some consistent bodywork experience. Having this extra time allows the therapist to be supremely detailed, further enhancing your body's ability to recover from the physical ailments that are hindering its natural function.
