Everyone has a different goal in massage. Whether you are an elite athlete, weekend warrior, or office worker, our experienced team of therapists at FitWell goes the extra mile for every patient to help you recover, maintain, and excel. We listen to you and work with you to determine the most appropriate type of massage for your goals by utilizing a range of techniques and our extensive knowledge of the human body.
Therapeutic Massage is the manipulation of the muscles and tissues of the body to prevent and alleviate pain, discomfort, and stress. It mainly focuses on realigning muscles and connective tissues to help you you relax and rejuvenate. It is particularly helpful for people that suffer from acute trauma or chronic tightness and stiffness. In these particular cases, adhesions (also known as “knots”) are often formed in muscles, tendons, or ligaments and they can inhibit circulation, limit movement and cause pain.
When Massage Therapy is paired with Chiropractic Care and Functional Movement Rehabilitation, the benefits are terrific. The combination allows your chiropractor and massage therapist to discuss your problems and symptoms so the team can tackle your issue from a more comprehensive approach with sustainable strategies. Your chiropractor can focus on the structural misalignments, re-training the faulty biomechanics of movement, and strengthening the necessary parts of your body; While your massage therapist can target the muscle adhesions. This will allow for complete recovery of your injury and the ability to sustain the positive results for a prolonged period.

What Our Patients Have To Say
"Dr. Lisa Covey is such an amazing practitioner! She has a healing presence alone, and is skillful and focused in her treatments. I have a chronic condition and my body feels so much more vibrant and functional after each session, not to mention the reduction in pain. I recommend Dr. Covey and her team to anyone in need of skillful and nurturing chiropractors!"
"A friend who had recent surgery recommended FitWell to me. When I first arrived I was really messed up and Dr. Mae Li, a passionate and knowledgeable chiropractor, is really the best. She invests in you until she finds out what and why you have pain. I love coming here and I feel good after each session. Can’t say more. This place rocks."
"Have been going to Dr. Covey for several years and have been extremely happy with her care — for general preventative health as well as apricot issues. She is extremely knowledgeable, gentle and effective. She also worked with my teenaged son through a serious sports injury and was his most effective medical resource/provider."
"Nara is a gifted healer and massage therapist. I bring her a list, she discovers the rest; and I always walk away from her table feeling looser, taller, aligned with gravity, and feeling renewed. Nara's techniques address the issues; and she's an interesting well-traveled person besides."
"Very happy with the treatment I received at FitWell for a knee problem I have been having for a couple months. I met with Dr. Mae Li and she really knew how the body works and was able to help. She explained to me what was happening with my knee and what corrective actions I can take to help with the issue going forward. Definitely recommend and am very happy with Dr. Mae & FitWell!"
"I had a 60-min massage at FitWell and it was wonderful! I had been having lower back pain that came on suddenly. She listened to me explain what was wrong, and not only hit all the spots that were bothering me but even identified new ones related to the pain I'd been having. This was leaps and bounds above a standard massage from a spa and even well above any deep tissue massage I've ever had. I will definitely be going back. "
"Dr. Lisa has kept me running since 2010. After breaking my foot and causing all kinds of mayhem to my lower legs, medical care providers and therapists told me to find a new sport. I found Dr. Lisa. Since then, she's enabled me to run 7 marathons and maybe 30 half marathons, and still going strong. She welcomes me back after each nagging injury, turns me around and gets me back on the road. I plan to run 'til I drop."
"I started working with FitWell (Dr. Heather Casey) with extreme sciatic pain. I received truly life changing (restoring) care in months leading up to a surgery and every month since. I have kept in outstanding health, surfing, running and leading the life I want with the help of fitwell to provide precise, practical fixes to my sensitive body. As a health care professional in Integrative Medicine at UCSF I am often asked for recommendations and it is very easy- FitWell"
"Dr. Mae has done amazing work for me. I had a debilitating upper back issue that left me writhing in pain during a long run where I had to limp about two miles home. After three sessions with FitWell, I am back to nearly 100% normal, which I find remarkable. Thank you for the great work, Dr. Mae!"
