What is The Blue Buddha? The Blue Buddha is a street level, two-room, by appointment only private practice massage therapy and bodywork studio offering skin care and acupuncture on select days. We are located steps away from the Polk Street Business District in the Nob Hill neighborhood of San Francisco just a short stroll from Union Square. We are a group of independent business owners sharing a beautiful space and a common philosophy rooted in the transformative power of bodywork. The Blue Buddha is Erik Everts (Founder, massage therapy & bodywork), Siri Hanson (massage therapy & bodywork), Eric Kerr (acupuncture) and Sheryl Leaf (massage therapy & bodywork, skin care).
