Thai & Acupressure
Thai bodywork is a unique style of massage that is therapeutic, relaxing and invigorating. What makes Thai bodywork unique is that it is done on a thick padded mat on the floor and incorporates a good deal of stretching into a session. Hands on muscle kneading, palming and thumbing is also a part of it, but the stretching component allows the muscles to lengthen as they are massaged, bringing them... into a greater state of relaxation. Range of motion is also explored, moving deep into the joints, allowing deeply held tensions to melt away. A Thai bodywork session will leave you feeling lengthened and stretched, taller, more aligned and more grounded. It's a truly therapeutic modality.
You don't need to be a yogi or have a high level of flexibility to enjoy Thai bodywork. It's my job to meet my clients where they are at, making sure they feel comfortable and taken care of. Any body type, fitness level, age, orientation - straight or any expression of the LGBT spectrum - all are welcome.

I'm so glad I set up an appointment with John. He was to communicate with and gave one of the most memorable massages I've had in a while. He made me feel extremely comfortable, and I can't wait to feel his hands again soon.

Absolutely first-rate. I say this with great confidence because I have had dozens of Thai massages in both Thailand and the major capitals of Europe besides the USA. John is a super nice, super gentle person with an exceptionally soothing disposition. His hands are warm as his touch ioverall. He is excellent at sensing when to apply more or less pressure. He has worked out a uniquely personal style that shows you how genuinely devoted he is both to his art and his clients. I feel I won't find 2 like him, so I will just keep calling him. Very effective at relaxing your whole body; no kinks left and all tension resolves into bliss.
I had the message while John was visiting in Madison, Wi but I will surely call on him in NYC as well whenever I am there.
MANY MANY THANKS, JOHN! from Nicholas

It was a nice but cool summer day in Ptown and I decided to look for a new body work experience. I have had a lot of deep tissue massages and have heard about Thai massage but never experienced it. When I came upon John's ad I was struck by its detail and his reviews reeked of his integrity. For me, John's took deep tissue massage to a new level of enjoyment. His work was customized based on talking to me before hand, learning what my massage preferences were and what I thought needed - and his work used that info as a starting point for what was the highlight of my massage experiences. This massage was completely relaxing, invigorating and enjoyable & redefined for me what deep tissue body work should feel like. I will schedule more times with John when I am in NYC and truly wish I lived closer to John to experience more of his amazing work.

This was my first therapeutic Thai Massage. It was great! I recommend John. I had never experienced massage on a floor mat (instead of a table) and found that it was very comfortable and relaxing. John asked me about any body / muscle issues and was thoughtful about where I needed attention. (FYI...in the "product used" field of this review I selected "don't know" because that field is required - however no product was used - which was perfect).
