Testimonials

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

July 12, 2020 in Washington, DC (in-studio)

Darío is one-of-a-kind. With his training and technical knowledge, his physical strength, and his attention to his clients' needs, he consistently gives superior massages. I am still floating from a session on his table a little while ago, one of the best I have ever experienced. Treat yourself to some time with this gifted professional, you won't regret it!

Feb. 28, 2020 in Washington, DC (in-studio)

Dario is an expert at his profession and I’m fortunate to be one of his regular clients in the DMV area. The quality of his massage is superior to any other I’ve had -- by incorporating techniques from his vast knowledge on body mechanics and applying his innate intuition on healing, each massage feels specialized and focused on me. If you get the opportunity to have an appointment with Dario, take it, and see why he is the best of the best.

During a vacation trip to Ft. Lauderdale in January, 2019, I was looking to increase my level of relaxation with a massage. After reviewing masseurs available in the area, I selected Dario based upon his hours of professional training, experience and because he also has knowledge of stretching techniques. Wow, did I ever make a good choice! Dario responded promptly to my text and we set up a date and time with ease. Dario's massage room is clean and professional. He listened to my preferences for the massage and I left feeling incredibly relaxed with an increased range of motion. My first massage with Dario was so good that I include reaching out to him as a routine part of trip planning - air, hotel and car reservations but most importantly, scheduling an appointment with Dario! Recently, I have been fortunate enough to meet Dario in Washington, DC during his travels here. I highly recommend him and you will too after your first session.

I've been going to Dario for massages for 4+ years. He gives the most incredible deep tissue massage that leaves me feeling relaxed and rejuvenated. Most recently I had not been to him for a few months and was having an issue with my shoulder (chronic pain and limited motion). I saw Dario last week and he did his magic, I left with no pain and full motion!


He has a separate massage room that is peaceful, serene and always clean. Dario is a very talented therapist and a sweetheart!

Dario literally gave me the best massage I have ever had. He has great technique, he's attentive, and he LISTENS---all of these things ensured that I had the best experience possible. I WILL be coming back.

April 30, 2019 in Fort Lauderdale, FL (in-studio)

Dario is the best massage therapist I've ever worked with, and I've been lucky enough to work with some really good ones for different sports injuries. Dario is very knowledgeable in both massage technique and body mechanics. He also really listens to you and gets to the bottom of the issues you're having.
I had some chronic pain and limited mobility in my shoulder from a rotator cuff injury. After several sessions with Dario, the pain is gone and the mobility is back to 100%. If you're looking for a great massage from an experienced, knowledgeable, and genuinely nice person, I would really recommend that you try Dario!

I recently started receiving massages from Dario about 6 months ago. As the owner of a renovations company, I have a very strenuous and stressful job. I often suffer from lower back pain due to my line of work and also carry all of my stress in my upper back and shoulders. As a masseuse, Dario was very attentive to my needs and really took his time and focused on my “trouble spots”. His friendly personality made me feel comfortable from the beginning and he is always completely professional and classy in every way. If you are looking for a professional massage in an immaculate, relaxing environment...then Dario is definitely your guy!!!! 5 stars for sure!!!

FIVE STAR MASSAGE

I've been a client of Dario's for 4 years now and I can't say enough good things about him. If you are looking for someone with a great touch and technique look no further. Dario has the innate ability to relax the most stressed. I can't say how many times I've fallen asleep on the table (hopefully my snoring wasn't too bad) after only a few minutes. Each time I awake refreshed and seemingly stress free.

You will notice he prides himself on his practice. His studio is immaculate, well appointed with comfort and soft music. Choice of cream or lotion are equally nice.

If you're in need of a massage to take away your stress and worries look no further.

March 22, 2018 in Fort Lauderdale, FL (in-studio)

Dario was AMAZING....I never had such a wonderful great massage where a massuer paid attention to your needs and was very friendly. He didn't rush and he made me more relaxed than I ever been before. He is in tune to your body and very professional. When I visit again I will seek out Dario for sure. 5 Stars all the way.

March 20, 2018 in Fort Lauderdale, FL (in-studio)

I’ve had many massages at some of the best spas and I must say my massage with Dario was by far the absolute best! He is very professional, the setting was very relaxing and he even followed up the following day! I will definitely return.

March 19, 2018 in Fort Lauderdale, FL (in-studio)

Dario was welcoming with a good sense of humor.
His massage was one of the best I’ve had and I’ve had many. I asked for deep tissue and that’s what I received. The pressure and rhythm of the massage was almost hypnotic.I left feeling relaxed and mildly energized. When I come back to Fort Lauderdale I’ll make a point to him again.

Sept. 30, 2017 in Fort Lauderdale, FL (in-studio)

From the beginning Dario was very welcoming and his studio is immaculate. Before he began the massage he sat down and asked questions about the type of massage I needed and got details about myself. The massage table was so comfortable and immediately Dario applied the perfect amount of pressure and the entire massage was perfect. From pinpointing the knots in my neck and back to stretching, I could not have asked for a better massage. I am so glad I found him, I just wish I scheduled a longer massage! I will definitely become a loyal customer and will be back soon. A+++

July 15, 2017 in Fort Lauderdale, FL (in-studio)

After reading other review, I had to try myself. Dario is the best! The massage was simply amazing. Dario indeed is very professional. Expect to get a great massage, and leave totally relaxed.

May 02, 2017 in Fort Lauderdale, FL (in-studio)

Dario greeted with a great smile makes you feel confortable. His massage overall technique was perfect and did exactly what was needed to relax and let go of some stress. HIGHLY RECOMMEND, I will surely be back.

March 29, 2017 in Fort Lauderdale, FL (in-studio)

By far one of the best massages I ever had in Fort Lauderdale. The massage was totally focused on my back issues. I was so impressed that I already booked another appointment and will likely book many more. I highly recommend without hesitation.

Jan. 30, 2017 in Fort Lauderdale, FL (in-studio)

Dario was fantastic. Great massage with stretching. Great listener to achieve the pressure I wanted. Great focus on problem areas. Wonderful atmosphere. One of the best massages I have ever had. Will be back as soon as possible.

Jan. 14, 2017 in Fort Lauderdale, FL (mobile)

This was a very relaxing, professional, and beneficial experience!! The massage was excellent and his personality was just as warm and welcoming. I would def recommend him to anyone!!

Jan. 11, 2017 in Fort Lauderdale, FL (in-studio)

Dario massage room is very tranquil and reminds me of very high end spa or better. His technique is very therapeutic and relaxing; dosed off during the session, meaning very good skill! Very professional and courteous, give him a try! Thanks Dario!

July 26, 2016 in Fort Lauderdale, FL (in-studio)

Dario is amazing.

My massage with Dario was excellent. He's very professional and super friendly. His massage studio is impeccable and made me feel very relaxed. Overall I had an amazing experience, I highly recommend him.

July 02, 2016 in Fort Lauderdale, FL (in-studio)

Had a great massage with him, and we both felt that the pressure and attention that he gave was right on point. I will gladly recommend that him, and tell any of my friends to see him.

March 12, 2016 in Fort Lauderdale, FL (in-studio)

I had an amazing massage today with Dario. His massage skills are excellent and his massage studio very clean and relaxing. I've had many massage and this massage was top notch. I will definitely be back!

Feb. 06, 2016 in Fort Lauderdale, FL (in-studio)

Again Dario excelled himself in giving me a fabulous massage. He gave me perfect pressure (deep) as I like it, but he'll adjust it to whatever you require. The studio is very comfortable, relaxing and extremely clean.
Dario works very hard at giving an awesome massage and he leaves you feeling amazing. Thanks Dario, for such a great massage. I'm Looking forward tp the next one!

Dec. 01, 2015 in Fort Lauderdale, FL (in-studio)

Highly recommended. The massage was excellent. Dario was quick to respond to texts; his home was spotless and offers a safe environment for a great massage. He was curteous, professional, and a great masseur. I will hopefully see him in again when in FLL. Thanks, Dario

Aug. 05, 2015 in Fort Lauderdale, FL (in-studio)
