About Jocelyn Yang, CMT
Before pursuing a career in massage, Jocelyn worked in the video game industry as a Software Engineer. After developing tendinitis as a result of spending long hours at the computer, Jocelyn made the decision to pursue her true passion to help others. Since entering the health and wellness industry, Jocelyn has gained experience offering her skills at spas, chiropractic offices, sporting events, and corporate offices. In 2010, Jocelyn took a hiatus from massage to pursue a chiropractic degree, however after completing one year at chiropractic college, she decided that massage remained to be her true calling, and left school to start her own private practice in 2011. Jocelyn currently sees clients in her office in San Mateo as well as in their homes, in addition to providing chair massage at various companies in the Bay Area.
What differentiates us
Jocelyn uses her extensive understanding of anatomy and physiology, as well as her intuitive touch to offer the best care that she possibly can to each and every one of her clients. Jocelyn uses a Western approach to her style of massage, targeting the muscles and connective tissues in the areas where she feels are the most restricted. She does not believe in segregating the different massage modalities, and instead she incorporates several modalities and techniques into each of her sessions, depending on her clients' needs. During your session, Jocelyn will use a combination of Swedish, Deep Tissue, Myofascial techniques and Sports Massage. Jocelyn believes that the most effective massage session involves effective manipulation of the musculoskeletal system (Deep Tissue, Myofascial techniques, Sports Massage) in order to reduce physical stress, while still allowing the client to relax (Swedish), reducing emotional stress.
How we were trained
Jocelyn received her training as a Massage Therapist and Health Educator from the National Holistic Institute in 2008, graduating with Honors and completing over 720 hours.
Why we love what we do
Jocelyn enjoys an active lifestyle, and has a passion for helping others, and massage is the perfect way to do both. It is always a pleasure for Jocelyn to meet people from all backgrounds, establish a connection with each of them, and hope to make a difference in their lives.
