I do a unique kind of bodywork that feels beautiful to receive and helps you heal on all levels: body, mind, emotions and spirit. This is not your average massage. It's a form of somatic therapy / alternative medicine developed by Osteopathic physicians. People leave a session typically feeling balanced, clear-headed and energized.
I'm a Board Certified Practitioner with 13 years of experience, and also train other practitioners. Polarity Therapy (polaritytherapy.org), and Biodynamic Craniosacral Therapy (craniosacraltherapy. org) have a lot in common with traditional Eastern Medicine from India, Tibet, and China. They work with 'chi' - life energy - which is the underpinning of good health.
People come see me for a whole range of reasons -- everything ranging from a bad back to a broken heart. No matter what challenges you're facing of body, mind or spirit, this work can support you and set you on a path to feeling your best. It's also enjoyed by people in good health to rest and recharge, like a tune-up for your energy.
The pressure tends to be medium to light pressure, but the place it takes you mentally is very deep relaxation. It feels like getting a massage from the inside out, where your body tissue unwinds stress and discards pressure on its own, but without much external force.
In addition to Polarity Therapy and Craniosacral Therapy, I am also a Certified Massage Therapist, but my work is focused primarily in this area of holistic healing. So...if you're looking for a more typical gay / m4m massage, Swedish Massage, Deep Tissue Massage or Sports massage, I am probably not the best choice.
If you're looking for something more arousing or titillating, I'm also not the guy. I don't allow myself to be touched. I'm not nude during the session etc.
My work is great for persons interested in alternative health, yoga, meditation, acupuncture, spirituality, holistic healing, organic foods.... or if you're already in psychotherapy or other modes of personal growth, you might enjoy this kind of therapy.
I'm visiting San Francisco for a couple months from NYC, working from my home near Union Sq.
My prices are lowered while I'm in SF - $100/ hour; $125/75 min; $150/90 min. I prefer not to travel out, but in some circumstances am able to for an additional fee.
