I am a licensed massage therapist and a graduate of the Swedish Institute in N.Y.C. There, I studied basic and advanced Swedish technique along with deep tissue, sports and medical massage.

I have been massaging members of the LGBT community and their allies since I received my N.Y.S. license #005417 for more than 10 years. I have straight, gay, bi and trans clients of all ages and genders and practice an overall policy of non-discrimination in... my massage work. I'm also an expert in anatomy and injury treatment. The palette of my massage techniques include elements of classical Swedish massage, trigger point, cross fiber friction, myofascial technique, and facilitated stretching.

Steve was able to accommodate my request for an "ASAP" massage appointment yesterday.

Steve's location was easy to find, and his massage space is clean and very comfortable. He is a gentleman with great energy and made me feel comfortable right away.

I requested a light to medium pressure massage and Steve's massage was flawless as he knew immediately what areas of my body needed to be worked on. He also got me into that "zone" of relaxation where I felt like the outside world was far, far away. I even feel asleep, I was so relaxed. I thoroughly enjoyed the massage session with Steve and would I recommend him. I will definitely book an appointment with him again.

I travel a lot and I pulled my back out doing squats at the gym at my five-star hotel while in New York on business. I was in awful pain. I wanted a massage therapist who was experienced in both therapeutic and sports massage, that’s why I chose Steve. Luckily, he happened to be free within the hour. Upon my arrival, he immediately put me at ease. He was skillful, attentive, caring, (at times funny) and always conducted himself as a professional without being uptight or snotty about it. By the end of the session my pain was gone and so was my back spasm. I’m so grateful to Steve for helping to heal my injury and thus save me weeks of recovery time. Within a few days I was able to return to my daily workout. I think most importantly I felt that immediately I could trust Steve because his touch was strong, confidant, and deep with an intuitive knowledge of what massage strokes to use and how much pressure to use — especially on my injured area. A less experienced massage therapist might have hurt me, but he really knew what he was doing and helped me feel renewed. His studio was clean and private and I didn’t feel rushed at all. I will be back.

My most recent appointment with Steve was on Friday 6/8. He responded quickly and we were able to set something up on the same day luckily. I had a yoga class that week that wore me out so a massage with Steve was just what I was looking for. A shower before and after is always an option and for the massage itself, Steve is attentive, skillful, deep and healing. Both stimulating and relaxing, I'm figuring out how to pamper myself with Steve on a regular basis!
