"The energy through her hands has been extremely healing and strengthening during my repeated surgeries"
Advanced Craniosacral Sessions are my speciality. Craniosacral work encourages your own natural healing and benefits your overall health while addressing specific issues. Using a gentle touch that focuses on energy, blocked areas can begin to release, relax and open up. Feelings of wholeness, pain relief and inner connections are often experienced. please download this: pdf brochure

For almost ten years now, Barbara has worked with me and my ever-changing body.
More importantly, she has helped me to listen to and learn from my own body.
Whatever state of mind or body I present to her -- knee pain, adrenalin driven stress, tension patterns
I didn't even know were there -- Barbara's response has always been: "I get it."...
She doesn't just work with bodies... she knows how to have conversations with them.
Barbara is the best!
I have been receiving massages from Barbara Vos for several years.
She is quite skilled and is attentive to my body's needs.
She can make the knots in my body melt away after a massage session
and also infuse a certain amount of energy back into my body after the session.
I would call and make an appointment and relax and enjoy!

I am a busy executive who finds himself traveling for business constantly.
I make the trip from NY to San Francisco at least several times a year,
and no trip to San Fran is complete without a session with Barbara.
I met Barbara around ten years ago and I have stayed in touch with her ever since.
Simply put, Barbara is the best massage therapist I have ever had.
I often dread the stress and wear and tear of business travel,
but knowing I can end my day with a relaxing massage from Barbara,
makes me look forward my trips to the City by the Bay.
Whether we do deep tissue, Swedish, a combination with stretching, or throw in a craniosacral treatment,
I always feel super relaxed, more limber, and more lively.
She's also a lovely person with a warm heart and a pure soul.
I can't wait for my next visit. See you soon Barbara!
Barbara Vos has a very special gift for healing that moves beyond what most body workers are able to do.
Her ability to reveal a person's own curative power is extraordinary,
and her understanding of energy in every form is her unique strength.

I was diagnosed with a macular hole in one eye that was leading to blindness.
The only choice was surgery. I had to go through it three times on my right eye.
After the first surgery, I started to work with Barbara Vos to use energy healing.
I have been working with Barbara for almost a year now.
The energy through her hands has been extremely healing and strengthening during my repeated surgeries.
Before the second surgery, she was able to keep my energies flowing and strong,
so that I was able to go through surgery in a position of deep emotional and physical balance.
My recovery was lengthy. After the surgery, she has been able to align my energy to encourage healing.
The energy work has re-established my confidence, competency and strength,
after almost two months of bed-ridden recovery.
The work provides support and healing energy to the western medical surgery.
The third surgery for the cataract that had developed after the first two was very successful.
Through a combination of Western medicines and energy work.
I now have almost 20-20 vision in my right eye.
The energy work also appears to have slowed the deterioration in my left eye and I may be able to avoid surgery in that eye.
Barbara gives an amazing massage.
She is very intuitive, and helped me to find rest when I was incredibly tense and knotted up.
She is very gifted. I would highly recommend her services.
