To me, massage is a spiritual experience. It's about really listening to another man's words and his body. It's meeting him where he is. It’s providing just the right touch and safe space that allow him to relax, let go, and heal.

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 calm and healing I also offer REIKI, as full treatments or added to massage sessions. REIKI is a gentle Japanese relaxation technique that promotes healing on many different levels.

I'M FULLY COVID-19 VACCINATED (+ booster). I only see other verified fully vaccinated people. While I will continue to wear a face mask, your use of a face mask is optional. All other safety protocols remain in my comfortable Indio/Palm Desert studio.

I'd be honored to help you. Let's talk!

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.
