Located in the heart of SOMA district, downtown San Francisco, we are a modern rehabilitation and wellness clinic providing chiropractic care, physical therapy, massage therapy, yoga, acupuncture and performance training via pay as you go, discount packages and memberships.
Initial examinations are for those who have never seen the clinician before, OR if an already established patient has a new issue. New injuries or flare-ups typically require more time to evaluate so an hour is recommended.

In 2006, Christie attended her first yoga practice in the small town of Yountville, California. Christie has studied with many teachers on her journey in yoga and she continues to meet new teachers (both on and off the mat) who nurture the spiritual and physical growth in her practice and teaching. She loves her students and is grateful to share the practice of yoga with others.
Christie has been teaching at Yoga Garden SF for four years, it is where she completed her teacher training and is currently leading their Yoga Teacher Training Program for two and a half years. She is also trained inYoga Nidra, which is a guided meditation that follows a systematic method for inducing complete physical, mental + emotional relaxation. She also hosts workshops/retreats which are all about breaking down the mechanics/techniques behind more elusive poses like the handstand/arm-balances.
Jezariah has been a practicing massage therapist for the past 15 years. He was born into bodywork via the Human potential Movement at the Esalen institute, a center for healing and wellness. Being fortunate enough to have been exposed to myriad of great healers early in life, he has cultivated a strong understanding of the healing art of bodywork. He later went on to study traditional massage which gave him confidence to translate what he had leaned organically into a practical approach. After doing body work privately in a spa for 4 years, he then went on to work for a multidisciplinary rehab clinic in San Francisco for 5 years, allowing him to hone his massage techniques and built up multiple dimensions to his work. He combines his unique empathetic and flowing form of massage with the specific accuracy of sports rehab and muscle manipulation. Outside of his healing work Jez also has a passion for cooking and trained under the Iron Chef Morimoto in New York for 3 years.

Having gone through and healed from tremendous health challenges in the past 8 years that include four major abdominal surgeries, he knows intimately the work that comes with creating, sustaining, and regaining a true sense of health. For him, bodywork is about getting to the root of what’s causing disease, and sometimes that means having to look more closely at movement patterns and other daily practices.
