"A Massage Connoisseurs Must"

I'm James, a Licensed Massage Therapist for over 15 years here in New York City. I welcome all gay, bisexual, queer and questioning men.

I use both Traditional and Eastern modalities resulting in a truly unique session and experience.

Focused attention is on the 'core' areas of stress; lower back and glutes, neck and shoulders, hamstrings and quads. The outcome is a full blending of body and soul.

Although there are areas I will use... my forearms and elbows, the overall pressure is more Swedish/Esalen modality and not the 'Deep Tissue' modality.

Whether you are a seasoned New Yorker or an "on the go" visitor you will appreciate your renewed self.

My intention is to create a warm, clear atmosphere and energy. I am happy to meet with you and be a part of your health and well being.

*Fully Covid, RSV and Monkeypox vaccinated*
All areas are sanitized, HEPA filter in place, plush heated massage table. Nice air flow.

Spa quality Biotone Clear Results Massage oil used. Please let me know if you have any skin sensitivities.

Feel free to text (best), e-mail or call with questions you may have or to book a session.

Note: Yes, I do close those blinds! LOL :-) šŸŽ

I recently had a massage with James and it was an amazing experience! He was very professional and attentive to my needs. The massage room was clean and well-lit, which made for a very relaxing atmosphere. James was able to relieve my muscle tension and provide a relaxing experience. I would definitely recommend this massage to anyone looking for a great experience.

James gave such a fantastic massage. The massage was not only physically alleviating of stress, but also extremely mentally soothing. I found myself extremely calm and sleepy after, and felt total relief from tension in my legs and back. I'd highly recommend this massage to anyone looking for both physical and mental relaxation.

Iā€™m international student from Chicago and visiting NYC. I contacted with James and it was very easy to made an appointment and he was very flexible. His apartment very clean and he asked me some questions if I have injures or issues. His table has a temperature. I booked 60 minutes but he gave me 80 minutes. I felt very relax after the massage. At night I slept and felt relax. Thank you James for the massage and I hope to receive massage again.

James' hands are magical. His massage combines the perfect amount of pressure and incorporates both a firm and light touch. He's a true professional and really knows what he's doing. He's very personable and makes you feel comfortable right away. He also checks in to see how you're doing. The space is very nice and clean. The music was a relaxing component to a strong and ideal massage. I've had many massages and definitely plan on going back next month. Make an appointment. Bet you'll return.
