Massage therapy, once regarded as a luxury, is now considered to be an integral component in creating a healthful state of mind and body. It is the goal of every Parkpoint massage therapist to leave you feeling relaxed and rejuvenated in mind, body, and spirit.
SCHEDULING AN APPOINTMENT
To schedule an appointment, stop in at the Front Desk or call (707) 996-3111. Try to arrive a few minutes before your appointment or better yet, in time to take a relaxing soak in the hot tub before your massage. (Please note we have a 24-hour cancellation policy.)

Dan has been a certified Reiki practitioner since 2007, and is also a certified massage therapist. He enjoys nothing more than helping others reduce their stress levels, eliminate aches and pains, and feel rejuvenated. Dan has always been an athlete (currently competing in USTA league tennis and leading bike tours for the Fairmont Sonoma Mission Inn), and has had his share of injuries and aches and pains. When feeling some severe lower back pain several years ago that chiropractic treatments weren’t eliminating, he tried a Reiki treatment and couldn’t believe the results. He could feel the energy flowing through his body, and the pain went away. The Reiki Master felt that Dan was also a healer. He took an introductory class from her and fell in love with Reiki. Dan has been practicing this healing modality since 2007, along the way passing the requirements for the Reiki II certification, as well as the Reiki Crystal Healing course. In addition to Reiki, Dan has studied and trained in various massage techniques (Swedish, Deep Tissue, Sports Massage, Cranio-Sacral, Hot Stone, and Lomi-Lomi), and received his Certified Massage Therapist certification from the state of California. Dan truly loves healing people. His greatest desire is to be able to help people by reducing their stress levels, and by easing pain and discomfort caused by injuries or chronic conditions. Reiki and massage are wonderful ways to relax and rejuvenate the entire body, providing an overall sense of calm and wellness. Dan finds that most people who receive a Reiki treatment discover that they feel more balanced, less anxious, and much more relaxed and pain-free.
