Dawn Astrid blends many different modalities in each personalized massage session. Myofascial release, cupping, shiatsu, and sports massage techniques are among the varied modalities that may be used in any given session to meet her client’s goals. She specializes in deep tissue, results-oriented techniques, but understands and has a great intuitive touch when it comes to knowing pressure. The most satisfying aspect of Dawn’s work is the client who is relieved of their pain and on their way to better health.
Working with a sports chiropractor for most of her career, this deep tissue Jedi has worked with pre-Olympians and professional athletes including the Anaheim Ducks, Dodgers, Angels, and football, tennis, surf, golf, and volleyball players to name a few. She understands sports injuries; works with pre and post op; and is knowledgeable in finding the source of pain.
Dawn Astrid graduated with honors from the National Holistic Institute (NHI) in Emeryville, California in 2006. She has additional training in health education and was a TA at NHI during her time as a student there.
Dawn received her yoga teaching certification in India in 2001. She loves travel and adventure. Surfing and snowboarding are a big part of her life along with dance, nutrition, and spending time with her side kick Mergatroid, the best dog in the neighborhood.

Amazing maternity care -
I came to see Dawn throughout my pregnancy and she did wonders for both my physical and mental health.
Loved my massage and stories we shared during the sessions. Until next time...
Hi Siskiyou Massage: I'm a blacksmith and had a hard week forging a large bronze commission in my Berkeley Shop. Dawn Astrid focused on my lower back at my request and really gave me some deep relief. I'll be back. I visit Ashland for Shakespeare festival and this was perfect use of free time for me.
