About Altered States Of Science
Altered States of Science is an Oakland based massage studio catering to those who seek to improve their health. Clients travel from all over the San Francisco Bay Area to the studio’s lovely offices on Piedmont Ave. Clients range from those seeking a relaxing experience to those recovering from a severe injury or surgery.
We are 'ALTERED STATES' because massage can take you into a time and space where the body is relaxed and the mind is quiet. This is a non drug-induced altered state of consciousness. There is increasing evidence that taking the time to enter into this state of relaxed consciousness promotes health and well-being.
We are 'OF SCIENCE' because at Altered States we have studied and apply the disciplines of anatomy, physiology, kinesiology and medical exercise to strengthen our clients' recovery, general health, or athletic performance.
What differentiates us
We 'ALTER THE STATE OF SCIENCE' because we are not specialists in white coats performing medical procedures rendering you passive. As an Alternative Health Care Practice, Altered States will work with you and empower you to be active in your therapeutic goals.
