Testimonials

Gathered by Joe from admiring massage clients to share with you.

Oct. 31, 2020 in San Francisco, CA (in-studio)

Joe has been the GoTo masseur for me and my partner for over 3 years now. Never before in our lives has de-stressing been more important than Post-Covid months. We were both super excited when we learnt that Joe had started offering massages once things started reopening. He has done a phenomenal job of incorporating safety into his massage routine. His outdoor massage setup is a perfect setting to destress. On a beautiful San Francisco clear day, getting a deep tissue massage while birds around you sing their song..is just perfect. He also has outdoor heaters and a heated table for those not so warm San Francisco days. In Short, you are well taken care of, no matter what the weather throws at you. I prefer really STRONG massage and my partner prefers lighter touches. And we both walk out feeling like new. Thanks Joe for keeping us healthy :)

I emailed Joe for my very first appointment and we confirmed a 90-minute session for the next evening to address my sciatica. His home is on a quiet street (parking can be a challenge) and his massage room is comfortable. Dim lighting, just-the-right temperature, peaceful music. We began with a 20-minute Q&A regarding my issues (sciatica down my left leg, left shoulder range of motion). The massage session began with me seated in a lounge chair as Joe used various methods to address my shoulder and hip/lower leg. He also demonstrated some at-home exercises/stretches I could do on my own. We then transitioned to the heated massage table, starting face up. Joe continued to check in with me throughout the entire session with regards to pressure, room temperature, and to breathe. He sets and maintains a very calm atmosphere, thereby allowing me to remain completely relaxed through the entire session. As he massages and stretches your body from head to toe, he is calmly telling you in advance what he's about to do, and reminds you to speak up if you are uncomfortable or feeling any pain. I loved all the stretching and felt very safe and trusting in his hands. 5-out-of-5 Stars all around for Joe. I highly recommend him for your massage needs.

Massage is part of my personal regime for self care. Finding a masseur that connects with you completely can be a challenge. Joe is a consummate professional and compassionate gentleman. He doesn't just jump in, but rather takes a few moments to understand your physical needs to tailor his massage specifically for you. He began with a wonderful heat pad on my shoulders while collecting info. His technique is masterful and the effect is you will be in a state total bliss. He doesn't rush, and combined with the massage he uses other stretching techniques to provide one of the best, most revitalizing massages I have ever had. Clearly Joe is committed to providing the best possible massage. Book with him, you'll be glad you did!
