Linda Mach, CAMTC #17096
Linda brings compassion, positive energy and balance into her clients' lives through her massage and bodywork. She earned a B.A. in Social Welfare from UC Berkeley in 2000 and spent over 10 years working in various youth development non-profits helping low-income underserved youth reach their fullest potential. Linda started Synergy Massage & Wellness in 2011, after a 4-month sabbatical in South East Asia, as a small private practice out of her home studio in the Mission area of San Francisco.
Linda's massage training has taken her around the world, from Thailand to Hawaii, to learn and refine regional modalities in their home countries and bring the best experiences back to her clients. Most recently, she has added Fascial Movement Taping (FMT), kinesiology tape used to treat injuries and aide movement, to her ever-expanding lists of specialties.
A practicing yogi and wellness enthusiast, Linda understands the importance of the mind-body connection and experiencing life through the senses – unplugged and in real time. In her free time, she explores the world through backpacking, rock climbing, snowboarding, hiking or simply cooking a meal at home. Through her community and her work, Linda embraces growth, innovation and finds a life lived deeply with intention, integrity, and a passion for living.
