Patrick Stockstill has been a massage therapist since 2008. He is an Esalen® Massage teacher and practitioner, and a Deep Bodywork® practitioner with over 1000 hours of training in several modalities. He sees adult clients seeking to cultivate greater awareness of themselves through touch. Patrick's clients regularly report feelings of deep relaxation and wholeness, pain or symptom relief, and lasting benefits from his more focused, structural offerings.
In addition to his private bodywork practice, Patrick leads retreats and courses in Esalen Massage. Patrick is a former teaching member of the faculty at McKinnon Body Therapy Center in Oakland. He is a yoga teacher (500 hours of training), who enjoys working with anyone who is curious about their embodied experience.
Bhakti massage is named after bhakti yoga, 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 moved with his family to Orcas Island, WA in 2021. Bhakti Massage is no longer offering sessions in California. Please reach out for a referral if you haven't already received one!
