July and August found me in San Diego so I found myself on his massage table. There really is no one better; this tall man has hands of gold. You need to experience him for yourself! You will love it.

Thought I would try a four hand massage and it was a amazing. Talk about sensory overload. Definitely a novelty experience that isn’t offered everywhere. Relaxing environment, lighting, music, scents. If you want to try a new massage technique and have gotten conventional massage for a while, these are your guys. You will be very happy with the results.

Outstanding bodywork, and so relaxing that I fell asleep twice. This man is truly what you would call a healer. I’ve booked Newell twice so far and each massage was amazing. I have left both times feeling so refreshed, and relieved of stress and anxiety. Great skill, comfortable atmosphere / lighting / access to shower. You won’t be disappointed!

This massage was the most relaxing blend of swedish and deep tissue. I fell asleep at one point, so I hope I didn't snore! The environment was dim with warm red hues, nice scents and music that really put me into a deep trance. He even had a massage tool that hit trigger points and released knots because I specified I wanted certain areas targeted. I liked how a shower was available after to rinse off the oil. Whether you are specifically looking for a relaxing massage or therapy for knots, this is your guy because he tailors to your needs and frequently checks in on you. A+++

I’ve been coming to Newell for seven years now and he gives, hands down, the best massage I've ever had! His business card says, “Intuitive Massage,” and that couldn’t be more accurate. He knows exactly what your body needs. My saving grace for a back full of issues, to keep the activity and sanity going. Make sure to ask him to adjust / crack your back before you get on the table. Amazing bliss! I highly recommend him for attention to any stress, or just to simply treat yourself to a fantastic, relaxing massage. I’ve since moved away from San Diego, and any time I’m in town I text for an appointment.

I have been void of touch for quite some time, and this man's bodywork brought me to life. I felt so comforted the entire time, like I was getting a warm embrace. The pressure was perfect; the table felt like a bed. I fell asleep a number of times. When I left I felt something had been awakened.

Truly one of the best massages I've ever had. Newell made me feel comfortable from moment I walked in. It was like talking to an old friend. He is very intuitive and talented, and it’s rare that someone can provide such a healing touch like he does. When he asked me to roll onto my back I could barely move because I had melted into the table. He used a hot towel at the end, and having a shower available was a great perk. His place was very private and quiet. I absolutely recommend his bodywork. Make sure to schedule him in advance!

The first massage was so great I made another appointment the next time I was in CA. It was well worth the drive down from San Clemente. I can't wait for the next time. This man is so well versed in bodywork and really how to take care of you.

Newell is as described by all reviewers: kind, professional, skilled, and a real gentleman. He's able to make you feel extremely comfortable, get to know you very quickly, and help you get what you want out of your massage. Can't recommend him highly enough.

This guy's hands are magic. I got a relaxing swedish massage with oil. I've got a couple stubborn knots in my shoulders that he was able to work out. I'm a pretty small guy but I like really firm massages and Newell's pressure was perfect. He's a super friendly, professional, and personable guy who makes you feel comfortable as soon as you walk through the door. I'll definitely be paying him another visit soon.

I have to honestly say that this was the best massage I have had... hands down (pun intended). I have traveled the world and got massages everywhere (especially after 8-13 hour flights) so I have a good understand. He was professional, friendly and knew what he was doing. the lotion, pressure and style were spot on. I Guaranteed I will be back!

IF YOU ARE IN SAN DIEGO or wherever he travels... find him.

Definitely would have to put this in the top 5 massages I've ever gotten. He's got really strong hands but he is so conscious of what your body needs and constantly checks in to make sure it's right. He also makes you feel very comfortable from the second you step into his place. Newell is extremely sweet and has great conversation as well. I was thoroughly impressed by his therapy technique as it was really what I was looking for and can honestly say I've never felt more relaxed. I would give him 10 stars if that were possible. I'll be back for another treatment.

Move to San Diego and needed to find a good masseur and his is it. He hits all the aspects of a perfect massage. Vary easy going and down to earth. I will definitely be back on a regular basis.
