Foot massage at Sage Bodywork

About Us

When you come in for a massage at Sage Bodywork, expect something different: less pressure, more precision, and complete personalization for your wellness goals. Whether you're trying to get out of chronic pain or want to recover from surgery or injury faster, our massage specialists are here to support you.

Did you know that traditional Deep Tissue massage can actually increase inflammation, muscle spasm, and pain? That's why we've specialized in light touch techniques like Manual Lymphatic Drainage and Myofascial Release.


Our clients love that our massage style isn't just about feeling good, it’s about being functional again. We've helped people suffering from issues such as back pain, neck and shoulder tightness, tension headaches, sciatica, carpal tunnel syndrome, whiplash, and more.

It's very important to us to uphold a safe and respectful environment for all bodies. We are proud to have become one of the top rated massage therapy clinics in Seattle since we opened in 2020.

Not only will you potentially fall asleep during a session, you may be so relaxed you'll start snoring. Jesse has released muscle tension, relieved nerve pain, and actually made my body feel more structurally sound.

All Bodies are Good Bodies


We know how pain, trauma, and dysmorphia can change your relationship with your body, and we believe that massage therapy is an opportunity to practice acknowledgment, gratitude, and reconnection. That's why our highest priority is a safe, respectful environment.

We practice trauma-informed massage, which means you are given clear options for how your body can be seen and touched, and we always respect your answers. We know that touch can bring up unexpected emotions or memories, and we hold space for you to feel these things without needing to explain them or suppress them.

We are gender-affirming and welcome trans, non-binary, and genderqueer folks.

We welcome large bodies as registered members of Health at Every Size®, which promotes body acceptance and joyously healthy behaviors without judgment around weight.

We are committed to being anti-racist and reducing the racial disparity in healthcare.

We don't make judgments around body hair, scars, acne, tattoos, or any other part of your body.

We never push past your limits into painful territory - even if you can handle a painful and aggressive massage, we want to earn your body's trust, so that your mind and body can come together to heal deeply.

If you have any concerns before you book, please send us a message.

 She is deeply knowledgeable about massage but balances this nicely with a caring presence that allows me to feel really held and accepted during the massage. So much comes through her bodywork, even without words.

Our Origins


Jesse has always loved relaxing massage where your pain and tension effortlessly disappears. But everywhere she went, they tried to divorce “medical massage” from “relaxation massage,” as if the two aspect weakened each other instead of strengthening each other.

So in 2020, Jesse opened Sage Bodywork to offer extraordinarily gentle & effective massage.

In 2021 we began growing with like-minded practitioners who believe in this mission to share massage feels as good as it is good for you.
