I've been getting massages at least once a month in San Diego for the last several years (other than when Covid shut everything down). I have tried a bunch of massage therapists in the city and I rarely went back for a 2nd session — that is until I booked a session with Riley. He is genuinely nice, professional and intuitive. He pinpoints problem areas and uses just the right amount of pressure. He's honestly the best massage therapist I have used in a long time. Now that we’re both fully vaccinated I’m back to getting monthly massage from him and he just keeps getting better. He obviously takes pride in his space, as well (clean, comfortable, well decorated, great art on the walls which he changes up all the time, great music — not that mind-numbing new age noise you usually hear during massage). Do not hesitate to try him out, I’m sure you will not be disappointed.

I love this. His space is welcoming and comfortable. Great art on the walls, heated space. He’s got great taste in music for the session which was an added bonus. He’s very friendly — able to be quiet when I wanted quiet but also a good conversationist when I wanted it. Felt like he actually enjoys his work. He knows his stuff as far as massage technique — gave a good combination of what I think of as Swedish and deep-tissue — a mix of therapeutic and relaxing (definitely sensual too). He made sure I knew I could let him know if I was uncomfortable in any way- pressure, room temp, etc. You won’t be disappointed.

After several weeks of traveling, I needed a massage badly before my next round of travel and booked with Riley based on his profile, reviews and training. Was the best choice I ever made. His hands are magical and by touch read exactly where the tension is. Pressure and technique is perfect. I left rejuvenated and ready to take on the world (again). Very nice guy also with a comfortable table and very pleasant studio. Riley is my masseur for San Diego and I recommend him highly.

Riley's space is warm, clean, and inviting with easy parking in a great neighborhood. He was engaging, and welcoming, making me feel comfortable immediately. Riley is an intuitive massage therapist and checks in frequently throughout the session. He made me feel super relaxed, so much so that I took a 45 minute nap when I got home. That evening I slept soundly for the first night in a week. Riley is a professional who absolutely knows what he is doing, and he's nice guy too! I look forward to seeing him again.

Offers a great relaxing massage in a comfortable setting, his skill is apparent, he is accommodating and appears grounded and down to earth which is also good.

I just had my first massage with Riley. His place is very calm, clean and relaxing. He put me at ease from the minute I walked in. We did a 90 minute massage because I was having some back issues. I left feeling great and will definitely be back. Thanks Riley.

Riley is the ultimate massage professional. Very insightful, accommodating and competent. I always leave feeling simultaneously relaxed and invigorated. Simply, the best.

My massage was scheduled due to soreness in my upper traps & lower back pain. Riley has great rhythm & a confident technique that allows me to relax enough for him to go in deep & relieve unwanted tension.
