For me, massage is an exchange of energy. My strong, mature hands exert varying pressure and a combination of short and long strokes to ease the pain and tension from your aching muscles.

I attune myself to your body, responding to the way it reacts to my touch, and allow the flowing energy between us to create a channel that unites us in our common goal: bringing to you to a fully relaxed state. I maintain a holistic focus in... my practice, and I tailor my approach for the gay, bisexual, or queer man, combining technique and intuition to bring harmony and balance to body, mind, and spirit.

When you are on my table, your well-being is my sole purpose. With over a decade of experience as a masseur, you can trust that I will apply all the knowledge, skill, and instinct I've gained to make sure your time with me is therapeutic, pleasurable, and unforgettable.

ALLERGY WARNING: I do have cats. They can be kept out of the room for the session, but if you are highly sensitive an allergy pill before arriving is highly recommended!

I had my second massage from John this week and it was even more outstanding than the first. I had a long, tense work week, but I was able to relax immediately once I got on the table. His studio space is immaculate and clean; the atmosphere is calm and quiet, and its very easy to relax while there. He utilizes a number of techniques for a luxurious full-body experience, with special focus on any problem areas - and best of all, he has a friendly, welcoming personality! I highly recommend John and encourage you to book an appointment with him - he's a great masseur, and you won’t regret it.

I have been receiving therapeutic services from John since 2020, and we maintain a regular schedule of appointments every 2-3 weeks. Following a car accident that occurred during this time, John played a pivotal role in my recovery process. His knowledge and expertise in his field helped me to regain my mobility and reduce my pain levels.

There are several reasons why I value John's therapy. Firstly, his consistent availability allows for continuity in my treatment plan. He is always punctual and prepared for our sessions, which helps to build trust and confidence in his services. Secondly, we have built a strong rapport that enhances the overall therapeutic experience. John takes the time to understand my individual needs and preferences, and adjusts his techniques accordingly. This personalized approach has helped me to feel more comfortable and relaxed during my sessions.

Finally, I appreciate that John is attuned to my body's needs during our massage appointments, resulting in optimal outcomes. He listens attentively to my feedback and adjusts his pressure and techniques accordingly. This has helped to improve my range of motion and reduce my muscle tension.

Overall, I am grateful for the care and attention that John has provided me with. His expertise and dedication have made a significant impact on my physical and emotional well-being.

With so many choices for massage, choosing the "best masseur" can be difficult. John provides an amazing massage experience from beginning to end. His place is very clean and well organized for Covid precautions - you enter from the patio directly into his massage area, with masks. After asking about trouble areas, John takes the time to sense how you are doing and how your body responds to his touch. Then the deep work begins. John’s an avid bicycle rider and his legs show the work he puts in! So his attention to my leg muscles was really appreciated - this athletic masseur knows. Soothing work was combined with reflexology and specific attention to knots. Setting up the appointment and parking were also super easy. If you work out at the gym, do yoga, or hit the hiking trails regularly, this is your guy - he knows where the tightness begins and ever since he worked on me, I’ve been sleeping more deeply, breathing more deeply, and just savoring my body a little more. Here is a masseur who will really get to know your body, who pays careful attention to you for the entire appointment. My guess is every session that follows will be even better … .and that’s what I look for in great masseurs. I look forward to our next massage and the one after that!

John has been massaging me for years, and I keep going back for more of his fantastic 90-minute sessions. He is always a welcoming sight, opening the door to his in-home studio with a warm and welcoming smile. John exudes positive energy, is caring about addressing my needs, and has intuitively strong hands that seem to know exactly which spots need special attention. John's sole massage purpose is to take care of his clients' well-being, offering deep strokes for a therapeutic, energizing yet relaxing massage. From years of experience, I can say that he is one of the best in the biz, if not THE best.

John is a very friendly guy who greets you at the door with great smile. His massage technique is excellent. I felt like putty after our 90 minute session. I will be a repeat client. Thanks, John!
