To me, massage is a spiritual experience. It’s seeing and honoring the divine spark in each man. It's really listening to another man's words and his body. It’s meeting that person exactly where he’s at.
My massage studio was created with the intention that it be a sanctuary, outside of time and space. It’s a safe “container” where healing occurs on many different levels. Whether you’re fine-tuned to energy or not, you’ll... feel it.
I've been a CERTIFIED MASSAGE THERAPIST for over 25 years, proudly serving the LGBT community. I could give you a long list of massage modalities that I've studied through the years. But massage is so much more than technique.
I'd describe my work as meticulous and thorough. It’s a careful mix of respectful deep tissue and nurturing relaxation. I’ll fully address your specific needs. And at the end of your session my goal is for you to feel whole and centered.
To further enhance that place of healing I also offer REIKI.
I'M FULLY COVID-19 VACCINATED (+ 2 boosters). I limit my practice to other verified fully vaccinated people. While face masks are optional, I continue to follow other recommended safety protocols in my comfortable Indio/Palm Desert studio.
I'd be honored to help you. Let's talk!

I recently had a massage from Tim Henriques. It was a very nice experience. Tim took time before the massage began to ask me what I expected and wanted from the massage, and he followed through on my preferences during the massage. I never felt rushed; in fact, Tim spent time with me after the massage to get my feedback about the experience. The massage room was very private and well appointed. Everything was very clean. Tim made sure I was comfortable at all times, and I felt nurtured and cared for. He provided warm towels after the massage to wipe the massage lotion my body, and a bottle of water to help me hydrate. I give Tim ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ five stars, and I definitely will return.

I recently contacted Tim by text for a massage (first time client). Tim responded in a timely manner and outlined available times. Tim provided an information sheet in advance introducing himself and his massage service which was very helpful. Directions to his studio were easy to follow.
The massage studio was immaculate and very comfortable. We sat down and discussed the massage and the areas of focus that I had. Always good to develop a rapport with your provider. Tim delivered a great massage paying special attention to my focused areas with a good medium pressure approach.
Following the massage warm scented towels were used to remove any excess massage cream. Overall a very enjoyable experience and I look forward to my next massage with Tim.

I am a man in his mid-60s who waaaaay overdid it with the "spring cleaning" stuff, so I was sore from head to toe (literally). I booked a massage with Tim, and I am glad that I did. I don't like deep muscle work (especially now, which might have aggravated already-sore muscles), and Tim listened to my wishes and followed through expertly. He hit all my chronically sore places (neck, lower back) in addition to all of the new troublespots.
I appreciated Tim's approach. We sat in his beautiful studio and chatted about my needs, and came up with a game plan. I read about his use of a drum and singing bowl, and loved that he used them. I actually did feel the vibrations throughout my body as he played them; it was quite relaxing. I also appreciate that Tim isn't a "talker" during the session, which allowed me to drift off into my own little world. I actually fell asleep (a first) and awoke to my own snoring! I also was pleased that he isn't a "clock watcher," so the session didn't feel at all rushed.
Would I heartily recommend Tim? Yes! Will I be a repeat client? Yes!

In Tim's profile he talks about listening to his clients and "meeting him where he is". Tim did exactly that in my massage session today. We exchanged texts prior to the session to make sure we were COVID safe and set the expectations of the session. Then on the day of the session we discussed my needs for the session, any problem areas, things that I was and was not comfortable with during a massage, and anything else Tim needed to know to provide me with the best massage possible, like being ticklish. Tim followed through on our discussion completely. He targeted the problem areas thoroughly and provided an excellent relaxing massage everywhere else. Tim set the mood for the massage nicely and it really helped clear my mind of everything else so that you, like Tim, could focus on the massage. I remember saying to myself, "I didn't know that was there", several times when Tim would find a muscle knot that I didn't know I had. I look forward to having my next massage from Tim. It will be soon.

Tim has such a welcoming spirit. The massage was great and very healing. Apart from a great massage, it was very clean and covid safe! I love all of the precautions he has put into place for this massage. Tim has such a unique form of healing the mind and body. Will be going back for sure!

Thank you for a beautiful massage, I felt truly renewed. From the beginning, Tim made his massage for me tailored made. He asked what my needs were, what I expected and what would make the prefect experience. The massage room was very comfortable, with a heated massage table. He started with a spiritual drum roll! His touch was very intuitive, both gentle and firm.
He was generous with his time, not clock watching. Everything from my view point was ideal and I hope to return for some more magic soon. Thanks Tim so much, your years of experience showed to me your love of healing massage.

I had the pleasure of a 90 minute session with Tim during a recent visit to Orlando. Tim greeted me at his comfortable and clean studio with a kind and warm welcome. I appreciated that Tim took the time to talk with me before the massage to understand my goals for the session, as well as learn about problem areas that might need attention. The session itself was incredible. Tim knew exactly what pressure to apply and when, and his variety of interventions made for an amazingly therapeutic and relaxing massage. I have worked with many massage therapists, and Tim ranks up there as one of the absolute best. I would highly recommend a session with Tim.

I had my first massage from Tim yesterday and it was terrific. After a stressful morning, he put me completely at ease. We chatted briefly about pressure and trouble spots and then I lay down on his very comfortable table. Tim had listened to all I had to say and provided a super massage. I was looking for soothing and relaxing yesterday, but he clearly has the strength and knowledge to go as deep as you want him to. I hope to see him again soon.

I found Tim on the website and was happy he had an opening to see me. His studio was easy to find and very comfortable. He offers a couple different bodywork options and my massage was fabulous! I think you need to give Tim a try

Tim was easy to contact, and I made a same day appointment. We talked before the massage where my problem areas were. Tim has a very intuitive touch, and he used a wide range of pressures. It was the most incredible massage I have experienced and felt relaxed and at peace at the end. I look forward to many more massages from him.
