Bhakti Massage is named in honor of the bhakti yoga tradition, the practice of selfless devotion. During our time together, I devote my intention, skill, and compassion to your healing journey. You deserve to be healthy and happy!

Patrick and his family moved to Orcas Island, WA in 2021, and he is honored to offer safe, healing touch to the island community and visitors.
