I'm a Licensed Massage Therapist and a graduate of The Swedish Institute of Massage in NYC and I also have an MFA from Rutgers University.

I've provided high quality massage therapy to the gay community for many years. I specialize in a highly skilled, strong and vigorous, full body pro Sports Massage- a combination of deep tissue, circulating Swedish, Shiatsu, Thai stretching and energy balancing Reiki.

My approach is holistic- head to toe-... everything is connected.

I have vast experience working in Gyms (Equinox, Crunch NY/LA), Spas (Burke-Williams LA}, Hotels, Sports Clinics as well as with private clients.

I work on a pro heated massage table and a shower is available.

My space is clean, spacious and private.

I only do 2 sessions a day- so I am always at 100%. I know what I'm doing and I care about what I'm doing.
A massage with me is time and money well spent.

Please send me a text if you'd like to set up a session.

Thank you and I hope you're having a great day!

Gathered by Chris from admiring massage clients to share with you.

It was amazing to work with you yesterday and see that you remain the BEST massage therapist in New York --without question! As a former LMT I require and demand a lot of a massage and you deliver that and more. I am glad to be back in New York and even more glad to work with you again. My body and I feel incredible today!

Just had the pleasure of getting a second massage from Chris, and was just as pleased the experience as last time. Over the years, Chris has developed his own technique, resulting in an invigorating, full body massage that was both therapeutic and relaxing. I would recommend session without hesitation.

Incomparable. I'm amazed by Chris' massage technique — fluid yet deep strokes that made me melt into the table, and pinpoint precision when working on pressure points. He easily located the source of tension and tightness I wasn't even aware I had. When he finished, I think I felt an inch taller.
I wish I could make this a weekly indulgence, but will definitely recommend to my friends

Chris is amazing, relaxed me fully, made me feel rejuvenated with his strong hands, and he provided a truly wonderful full body massage. I am addicted. Highly recommended for his excellent approach, demeanor, professionalism, and gracious hospitality.

I have now gone to Chris multiple times for a massage. Every time I walk out of there I feel terrific! He is professionally trained/experienced, talented, strong and friendly. The perfect combo. You can take a shower at the end in a clean bathroom and a fresh towel.
