Samsara Wellness Center: Yoga, Massage & Tattoo in Bakersfield, California

Customized Table & Thai Massage Therapy

At Samsara Wellness Center, we take massage seriously. 

We look at the whole person, not just their acute symptoms to help provide immediate & long-lasting results. Your first experience begins with a complimentary consultation. Time where your bodyworker can listen to your health history, observe your postural alignment, and discuss your massage options. Physical limitations, injuries, cancer, auto-immune diseases and more are in good hands here. Follow up massages always have a extra time so you can update your bodyworker on any recent changes in your well-being, without losing your precious time on the table.

No two massage are alike, just as no two bodies are alike. Our bodyworkers use various massage styles, techniques and tools to help change the patterns of the body that contribute to discomfort. The tools used, such as hot or cold stones, Chinese cups, crystal essence sprays, are all part of the cost of your treatment, they are no extra charge.  

The actual massage lasts little more than your scheduled massage time; the real changes come with time and dedication. Our massage therapists help to educate you on stretches and self care you can do at home, changes you can make at work to practice proper body mechanics and correct breathing to help ease anxiety and depression.

Basalt Stones, Hot Stone Massage at Thai Massage at Samsara Wellness Center: Yoga, Massage & Tattoo in Bakersfield, California


Our hands may well be one our our greatest tools. But these other ones really are all helpful in creating long-lasting, effective change within the physical and energetic bodies. Read below to learn more about their benefits. Tools are included in the customized massages.

Basalt Stones: These stones are formed from cooled molten lava. They are able to retain heat for long periods of time. They are used in massage to loosen up chronically tight muscles and layers of fascia. The heat increases blood circulation which assists in detoxification, relaxation and pain reduction. 

Cold Marble Stones: Used for sinus pressure, tension or migraine headaches. Stones are used in facial massage and placed on specific areas to help with inflammation and pain.

Chinese Cups: Cups are used to help decrease pain, detoxification, help with chronic or acute muscle and connective tissue hypertonicity. Poor habitual postural patterns are easily recreated with these. Great for anyone who works at a desk and has shoulder, neck and upper back discomfort, as well as tight IT Bands.

Crystal Essences Sprays: Crystal essence sprays help to create balance in the Chakra energy system of the body using flower and gem essences. They smell fantastic.

Aromatherapy Oils: A customized blend of therapeutic grade essential oils used during the massage. Essential oils are picked during consultation.

Reiki: Is a Japanese form of energy healing using Qi or the universal life energy to help with healing. Physically it helps with deep relaxation, balancing of the endocrine and lymphatic system. 

Tibetan Singing Bowls & Paiste Gong: Everything vibrates and these instruments help to change up your vibration. Great for stress reduction, stimulation of the glandular system and to break up emotional, physiological blockages.
