Overview

Located in NYC

I’m fully vaxxed for Covid and MP

I believe all good massage begins with intent

The intent to soothe,center and restore; coupled with great technique

I'm a Swedish Institute graduate and licenced in Swedish,Deep Tissue and Sports Massage

My own personal style is a combination of all three; tailored with your needs in mind since no two clients are the same.

I get many requests for Deep Tissue work because I'm focused... ,strong and effective
But the depth of pressure is your call

My work is only therapeutic

I welcome all members of the LGBTQ community

I work on anyone regardless of gender , age or body type.

I require a mobile number to confirm appointments

The best way to schedule is by phone call or text

Blocked calls are ignored

Testimonials

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

July 08, 2023 in New York, NY (in-studio)

"Michael is a consummate professional and the best masseur I’ve had the pleasure of hiring. I see him on a regular basis for (strictly legitimate) therapeutic, pressure point massages that leave me exhausted in the best possible way. He’s diligent and will always have a thorough conversation with you before the massage starts, making sure that he’s able to address anything that’s going on with your body. At our first session, I complained about an impinged shoulder / upper arm pain and I haven’t had any issues subsequent to that massage. Moreover, if you’re looking for truly firm, concentrated pressure, no one can beat Michael’s touch. I could not recommend him highly enough.”

I am a very experienced consumer of bodywork, and I know talent and training when I feel it. The caring, deep tissue massage Michael gave to me helped guide me out of chronic tightness. He was the perfect person to help me reconnect with my body. His hands are strong and magical! I will definitely be booking with him again.

If you are looking for a massage from a certified, trained professional, then you have found it.

I am extremely devoted to and picky about massages. There are only a handful of people that I have returned to in my massage-going life, and I have added Michael to the list.

This massage is LEGIT. And so is he. Highly recommended.

Michael
Thanks for the awesome massage on Sunday evening.
I appreciate the last minute booking and flexibility.

The three highlights of our session:
1. organization - you were highly responsive and flexible and very clear in your intent and directions for getting to and in your place.
2. comprehensive massage - overall very very good. addressed all the right areas...I loved the first few minutes, no lotion, just pushing and poking and finding the problem areas.
3. use of lotion/oil. you managed this soooo well. I never felt oily at all. In fact, at times it felt 'dry' for lack of a better term, which felt so much deeper and more effective.

and thank you for the fancy water at the end. awesome experience, highly recommended

Michael provides a thorough, therapeutic massage. He was able to bring lasting relief to a very tight set of upper back muscles. It was easy to set up an appointment. In addition to his massage skills, Michael is an interesting person to talk to.

I just saw Michael again for a 90 minute deep tissue massage. Michael is a great healer, very intuitive in his method and reactive to what’s going on in your body. He’s got great strong hands and knows how to find your trouble spots and really get in there. Plus, he’s a good guy with an easy, comfortable demeanor. Will be back!

Michael’s massage was perfect for what I needed. I had a great, positive experience. From the moment I arrived at his space, Michael made me feel comfortable. He took his time and kept checking if the deep tissue pressure was working for me. I look forward to another session in the future.

Outstanding massage by a guy with a masterful understanding of healing touch. Michael knew intuitively what areas needed work to get rid of knots and points of tension. Will be a repeat customer.
