About Balanced Hart
Balanced Hart, located in San Mateo CA, specializes in Massage Therapy & Personal Training with a variety of Personalized In-Office & Mobile Services.
Whether you’re an athlete looking to take your game to the next level or a corporate professional needs a helping hand hitting that “reset” button, we value a holistic approach to health & wellness, fueled by education, with a clear focus on helping you live your life to the fullest.
We’re proud to provide some of the best massage therapy around, with goal-oriented, education-centered, and results-driven techniques. It’s amazing how many aches & pains we carry around with us that we are unaware of until someone starts poking on them! It also takes a considerable amount of energy to block out those aches and pains. And, believe it or not, much of it is self-inflicted. We’re here to help you identify and correct those habits & start treating your body right.
It’s time to reconnect with your body, reclaim ease of movement, and live a pain-free life. We believe that bodywork is not just about massage therapy, but also about education. You make the biggest impact when you feel your best…and we are here in the Bay Area to help you do just that.
