Lara has been my go to massage therapist for over 10 years. She knows just how to work with my body to get it to relax and release in a way that is deep and profound without being painful. I am a life long athlete and desk sitter with deep, deep muscle tightness that most massage therapists can't work with. They say, "oh, your tissue feels healthy and great!" but that is because they can't work deeply enough or "smart" enough anatomically. Lara is not just a talented bodyworker, but someone who is extremely educated about her industry and skilled in her craft. Her knowledge of anatomy, physiology, functional kinesiology, as well as food and nutrition make her stand far above any other massage therapist I have worked with...and I have had over 500 massages in my life! I also love her new office space. It's a professional office building and her suite is quiet and calm. There is no hassle or fuss at the front desk and no waiting! Parking is pretty easy, and there are tons of great places to get a bite to eat. It's a great excuse for me to visit another part of town that I wouldn't normally go to regularly. Go see Lara, you will LOVE her! She isn't just an amazing bodyworker, but she is also a smart, interesting person. She is the best :)
I have recently started seeing Lara Klemens for massage and she is extraordinary. She is highly highly skilled, and knows exactly how to treat specific areas. I had a tendonitis of the elbow, and Lara found all the associated tight areas in the forearm, shoulder, and triceps. I highly recommend Lara, she is very experienced and intuitive. A truly therapeutic and relaxing experience.
Lara is the best! I felt comfortable with her the second I met her and have had the pleasure of seeing her for many, many years now. She is professional, extremely knowledgable, has a warm and relaxing personality and a great sense of humor. As a hairstylist, I suffer from severe shoulder, neck and carpal tunnel pain. Lara always knows exactly what I need. She instinctively knows how to find what I have dubbed "the root of all evil" and casts it out. I always leave my visits with her in either a blissed-out, jelly-like state or feeling inches taller with a neck like a giraffe.

Although I've been to a number of massage therapists in San Francisco, for 10 years Lara was always my favorite. Too bad I no longer live on the West Coast, otherwise, I would see her as often as I could. Highly recommended!
Both my sister and I have been seeing Lara for countless years at Therapia and both immediately followed her when she told us she was going to start her own practice. About time!!! Words can't even describe how awesome Lara is. She really takes her time in understanding what areas of my body need work and focuses on my problem areas, which are usually my shoulder and back. Nowadays when I see her the only thing I need to say is "the same" and she knows right off the bat what I'm talking about. Now that's what I call attention to detail and customer service!!! HIGHLY recommended! I always look forward to my monthly massages with her! Booking appointments can be done online at genbook.com/bookings/slo…Or by emailing, calling or texting! I've done it all :)
I have been visiting Lara for massage for several years. Recently I moved to DC and I have found myself missing Lara a lot! She does a specific kind of massage therapy, the Hendrickson's method, which I cannot find here. I highly recommend trying it, but the deep tissue is great too. Lara is knowledgeable. After my car accident, she took special care to not aggravate my muscles. My favorite thing about her is that she genuinely cares, both about improving her practice and about her clients.
