About

Therapeutic bodywork is a lifestyle, not a once-in-a-while treat.  It’s a necessary part of healthy living.

 

hermannHANS is a therapeutic massage studio for healing in San Francisco, California. We are committed to the overall wellness of the therapist, client, and environment by offering only certified organic oils for massage and aromatherapy, along with hypoallergenic organic massage creams, 100% all natural cotton flannel sheets, 1″ thick deluxe fleece table pad, heated massage table, bottled water, hot towel service (to wipe off oil or cream), and unscented candles. Our commitment to total health will relax and nourish your mind and body ensuring you leave our studio with a healthy glow.

 

hermannHANS DBA is headed by founder Hermann James Seemann a certified massage therapist licensed by the California Massage Therapy Council #37941.  He graduated from the San Francisco School of Massage & Bodywork in 2012 and has been increasing peace and serenity through his powerful touch.  He has over 500 hours of training including Swedish massage, deep tissue, trigger point therapy, stretching and mobilization, myofascial release techniques, and lymphatic massage. Hermann has studied under various well-known healers including Jim Berns, co-author of “Ortho-Bionomy A Practical Manual,” Marty Morales, author of “Mastering Body Mechanics,” and Dr. Eric Ruben, DC, CMT, chiropractor.

 

Hermann has volunteered with various fundraisers and also a massage therapist at Kabuki Springs and Spa (kabukisprings.com). He was also a massage therapist and operations manager at Archimedes Banya in San Francisco (rated one of the top 10 best day spas by Sunset magazine).  At Archimedes, he trained in a variety of spa body treatments including venik platza, Turkish hammam body massage & scrub, organic sea salt scrub, organic honey & sugar scrub, European moor mud wraps, and aromatherapy baths.

 

In 2010, Hermann left the corporate world that he proudly and successfully worked in for over 20 years (as a fashion stylist and then interior designer) for some serious soul-searching.  He was invited to stay on an organic farm surrounded by redwoods and nature for seven months in Sonoma, CA. During this time, Hermann realized that his giving instinct combined with a lifelong commitment to health, fitness, and an organic lifestyle meant that his new career calling might lie in the healing arts. Always fascinated with human anatomy and understanding first hand the healing power of touch, Hermann determined that becoming a bodyworker and massage therapist made perfect sense.

 

hermannHANS is centrally located in the heart of San Francisco’s Mission district.  The quiet, peaceful space is beautifully furnished with all the amenities of an upscale spa massage treatment room, but with a private and tastefully modern vibe.

 

This practice is dedicated to my father Hermann Hans, Sr. for being a great role model. He was thoughtful, caring, honest, calm, softspoken, strong, and a man’s man kind of guy. Love you always.
