Diamond Pain Relief & Wellness – About Us:
Founded in 1995, Diamond Pain Relief & Wellness Center was the very first Wellness Center in San Francisco!
Before the concept of a “Wellness Center” was known, Irene Diamond, R.T., knew there was a need to combine an integrated approach to taking care of a person’s over-all well-being.
Irene wanted an warm, welcoming environment where a variety of wellness service and providers could serve their clients and patients, all under one roof. (Her idea was to be able to cross-refer to each other in-house, rather than sending clients and patients all over San Francisco.)
Irene was the ground-breaker of this coordinated approach in San Francisco, calling her multi-practitioner practice “Diamond Wellness Center” before people even knew what “wellness” was!
DWC is a family-owned business, directed by Irene and her husband Joey, who is the CFO (and when needed, sits at the front desk, but just don’t ask him to work the computer :).
Each health care provider providing their service through Diamond Pain Relief & Wellness is either a sole proprietor or corporation and carries their own insurance, licenses, and business permits.
Our goal is to provide you with the best education, hands-on & movement-based therapy
that will get you results — fast and effectively!
For People In Pain & Stress:
Our Goal is for you to experience immediate relief within your first visit.
(Most people will see a marked resolution of their issue in their 1st visit, and if it is stubborn, it may take up to three or four Active Myofascial Therapy sessions.)
For Maintenance & Wellness Enhancement:
Once you reach your Goal a maintenance plan is designed for you, that fits your lifestyle, schedule and budget. You can even achieve higher levels of wellness, sports enhancement, and job performance through regular therapy.
We are a research and evidence-based center. This means our clinical decisions and the services we offer are based on modalities and practices that have been well-researched and found to be proven effective.
(To the best of science’s ability to prove!)
Our signature modality for treating soft-tissue induced pain, restriction and dysfunction is the rehabilitation modality of Active Myofascial Therapy – The Diamond Method. AMT was created by our director, Irene Diamond, based on her own spinal cord injury that left her completely paralyzed at the age of 15. (AMT & Irene are recognized in the Massage World Hall of Fame.)
Personalized Initial Consultation Over The Phone Prior to Booking:
In your initial conversation with us, we conduct a brief consultation held over the phone or in person, with one of our managers or the director.
Through this complimentary phone consultation, you will be sure to receive exactly what you want and need! Our staff is trained to assist you in determining what service will be exactly right for you!
We work with clients on an on-going basis through programs and packages, but may also offer single-session solutions.
If you have any questions as to what type of therapy, service or practitioner would be best for you, please ask.
We integrate easily into other Western and Eastern methods and modalities of pain management, soft-tissue injury and dysfunction relief, nutrition, mindfulness, stress relief, weight management, and over-all fitness and wellness maintenance and enhancement.
If we can’t provide the proper services for your clinical goals, we have a wide network of other Health Care Providers we can refer you to.
100% Satisfaction Guarantee — or You Don’t Pay!
We are the ONLY center where your therapist offers you a 100% satisfaction guarantee or you don’t pay for your service.
(We ONLY associate with therapists who are THAT sure of their service, skills and ability to help you get results!)

We are located in a charming blue and white Victorian house converted for our use.
You are greeted in a large reception area with a fireplace and other warm touches.
• Complimentary hot tea and fresh fruit
• During the holidays we provide treats & sweets
• Fresh orchids are placed in every room for elegance
• Natural sunlight fills the entire Wellness Center
Please remember – we are not a spa!
The rooms are not sound-proof and sometimes you do hear noise from outside. You won’t get the fuzzy robes, slippers, and lemon-water, BUT you will receive the highest quality of services at the best value around, with a big, happy smile!
We are located in the beautiful Marina District close to Union Square, Fisherman’s Wharf, Japan Town, Pacific Heights and North Beach. If you are coming from Marin, we are just over the Golden Gate Bridge and you can easily access us by public transportation or foot.
Free street parking right out front with no meters! (shhhh, don’t tell anyone)
The parking turnover is fairly frequent so you can usually find an available spot right on our block.
If, for some reason you are having trouble, there is an affordable public parking lot above the main post office near Filmore St.
(Enter on Moulton St).
Please keep in mind, if there is an event in the Marina, parking may be more of a challenge, so please allow additional time, so you don’t cut into your session time.
Hours: Open most holidays!
Monday – Friday 10:30 – 8:00pm
Saturday & Sunday 10:30 – 6:00pm
(Closed Tuesdays temporarily)
