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

I have been a regular client of Eugene’s for almost a decade. He is exceptional with deep tissue work as well as floor Thai stretching techniques. He is missed for a couple of months each year while traveling on a retreat to return refreshed and renewed. You will have an easier time scheduling when planning ahead, last minute appointments are rare. Eugene is a pleasure to meet, tall and very strong with a warm smile that will put you at ease.
The massage room is quiet and calming with a heated table.
The location is convenient and there is almost always close street parking.

I’ve been going to Eugene for about 1 year. I’m a big guy so need someone with who is strong for my massage. He is very strong where needed and very gentle in other areas. Scheduling is easy with a little planning. He is good so his calendar can fill up. Parking is easy. The space is private and sometimes he includes special touches like hot stones or stretches.

Do not miss this opportunity for a phenomenal relaxing massage and healing experience! Eugene was a prompt communicator when I first reached out to book an appointment. Additionally, Eugene works hard to make you relaxed and comfortable in his studio. He has a keen intuitive sense and knows exactly what muscle groups need the most work. Do yourself a favor!

Eugene was a dream. Very kind, very funny, very professional. He knew what he was doing, and he helped me with some pain issues in a way no one has. He even gave me advice on stretching techniques to do after the massage. I've seen quite a few people on this site, and Eugene is the real deal.

July 08, 2022 in Chicago, IL (in-studio)

I traveled to Chicago and really needed a good massage so I had a session with Eugene and it was the best and very relaxing. Totally professional and really knew my trigger points.

Thanks Eugene. Can’t wait to get back to Chicago.

I have been going to Eugene for over seven years. He is a kind and caring therapist, consistently checking in with me throughout the massage. He's an engaging conversationalist, speakiing with me as much or as little as I desire on any given visit. His massages are professional and very effective. My shoulders and back carry much of my stress, and he always uses exactly the right pressure to relax muscles and increase flexibility. In addition, he works on the rest of my body, even feet and hands, appropriately varying intensity based on my feedback to so that my whole body is relaxed and restored to a state of health and well-being.

I have been getting a massage from Eugene regularly for four years. He is very intuitive in his work and always finds the origin of my tension. He is kind and inviting, which helps me relax on his table and enjoy my healing time. His location is very convenient, and parking is always accessible. His studio is a cozy room that is perfect for creating a relaxing setting. It's hard to get on his schedule because he juggles school and a new job. However, he always makes it work for me because I give him advanced notice when I am available. I am thrilled to have him back in Chicago. My work involves a lot of traveling, and I usually try to add a massage as part of my travel plans. I have never had a more healing experience than with Eugene. He finds the best pressure to work on different body areas and confirms with me frequently that the pressure is right. He is very passionate about healing and connecting with his clients, and once you experience his touch, you will definitely want more.

Due to an injury, I was looking for a therapeutic massage with someone who has a background in rehabilitation. I found that massage therapist in Eugene. Location? Convenient. Parking? Easy. Studio Space? Inviting and very clean.

The massage itself was exactly what I was looking for and beyond expectations. Eugene did not start with what I would call the "textbook" approach to massage. After a few questions, he immediately started in my hip area. After a few moments of trying to figure out what his plan was, I realized that he was working on experience and intuition and I just went with it. His therapeutic massage combined deep tissue, swedish style massage techniques, and stretches/movement to increase range of motion. He would push me to a point with deep tissue, and transition seamlessly into relaxing, calming massage. He would work other areas, and then return to my hip to continue more work. It reminded me very much of a physical therapy session, with the added benefit of massage.

My range of motion increased significantly, and never did I feel I was pushed too far. We discussed a future appointment in a specific time frame to continue.

Eugene is very knowledgeable, friendly, and inviting. He is well worth the drive.

My husband and I have been working with Eugene just over two years. In that time, he has consistently delivered a quality massage. He arrives with his table and gets set up and starts to work. He is congenial and easy to talk to. Our schedules make it challenging to arrange a time, but he is always flexible and able to accommodate our calendar. He uses a blend of styles depending on the issues he finds in our muscles on that visit. He has always delivered and we are both in better condition for his work. We highly recommend him.

Jan. 10, 2021 in Chicago, IL (mobile)

My partner and I have been getting massages from Eugene for over 2 years. He comes to our house. Always punctual, very professional and knows his stuff. He can find a troubled spot and work it out. We always feel stress free and very relaxed after a massage from Eugene! We will continue to use Eugene’s services!

I was very excited to see Eugene for a massage when he was visiting Portland. Eugene gives an amazing massage, his space is neat and clean with a massage table that was comfortable. He greeted me with a smile and he is super polite.
I look forward to seeing Eugene again on his next visit to Portland. I highly recommend Eugene which is a compliment I rarely give as my professional life is in the spa industry.

Eugene provides a great, nurturing massage. He has a good sense of what my body needs and he meets those needs. I always leave his massage feeling much more relaxed and with a smile on my face. He knows what he is doing. I have been going to him for many years now. His place is not far from where I live in the south loop. It is clean and easy to park for free on the street. I have never had a bad experience with Eugene.

March 24, 2020 in Chicago, IL (in-studio)

If you are looking for a great massage please check out Eugene. I have went to others closer to home but never did I feel like I got exactly what I needed. I read Eugene reviews and thought why not give him try even though he was 1 hour away from me. I am so glad I did . Eugene was very professional and welcoming from the time I stepped into his space. Eugene could tell exactly where I needed work done , I didn’t even tell him. Do not let the distance deter you from going to him. If he moved 2 hours away I would still go and see him.

My stress level was high and my shoulder had been giving me issues for a while when I scheduled a massage with Eugene. He not only gave me a great massage, but he was able to pinpoint the source of the problem. When he found the spot near my shoulder and armpit, it was amazing! I’ve been to other massage therapists over time and not one of them could find what was giving me the problem. Eugene’s massage is not only relaxing but therapeutic, too! Don’t hesitate to call this talented masseur! I will definitely be scheduling with him again.

Oct. 11, 2019 in Chicago, IL (mobile)

Eugene has been my masseur for the last 4 years. I have two appointments with him every month. He is always puntual and lets me know by text when he is leaving on his way to my home. His massages are very professional and he adapts them to my specific needs. He is very knowledgeable about the human body its strength, its weakness and its needs. Overall he is a great profesional and very a personable guy. I highly recommend him.

I’ve been getting massages from massage therapists for over 30 years. But I’ve been seeing Evgeni (Eugene) for the past four years on a regular basis - at least twice a month - because massage therapy is about more than simply delivering a relaxing massage. I like the fact that he does outcalls and is able to come to my home to do 90 minute massages each for my husband and me. He has very good communication skills - both speaking and listening. He gets to know the client’s need or problem, checks medical history, what symptoms I'm experiencing and what results I expects from treatment. He gives clients his full attention and takes this important time on the front end of a massage. Eugene has a strong sense of empathy and a nurturing attitude. He also has a strong knowledge of his field and is able to use a variety of techniques. My massages with Evgeni have helped to de-stress, improve circulation, reduce and relieve pain, help rehabilitate injuries, improve circulation, and increase relaxation.

His judgment and perception are excellent. At times, massage therapists must decide whether a session would worsen a client’s condition. He has, on occasion, decided to choose a technique other than the one I requested. For example, I have done a great deal of running over the years - 44 lifetime marathons to be exact. More than one session was spent almost entirely on stretching very tight pelvic muscles, hamstrings and lower back muscles instead of just doing deep tissue massage with lots of pressure, which I like. During his sessions, he is able to tell whether a client is reacting negatively to treatment and adjusts accordingly. He checks throughout the session if the pressure is within your pain threshold or if it needs to be increased. He also has a sense that detects changes in your body from massage to massage. I appreciate that Evgeni does not practice what I call “cookie cutter” massages where the same massage sequence is used for every client and every massage regardless of conditions and preferences. He zones in on highlighted areas as his key priorities of focus.

Last but not least, Evgeni establishes a bond during his work that makes you feel like you are the most important person deserving of his attention. You will not be disappointed choosing him.

Great experience. Very strong and intuitive hands and met my needs of a little more warmth than most because I tend to chill when getting a massage. It was the perfect amount of pressure and long applications. His neck massage was fantastic. Worth the appointment!

Jan. 08, 2019 in Chicago, IL (in-studio)

Eugenes massage is very therapeutic and professional. He used different techniques which helped with the pain I was having. The atmosphere in Milwaukee was very relaxing clean and easy to get to and park. I have seen him in Chicago too and it was very nice too. I highly recommend Evgeni for Massage he solved a reoccurring issue in my back and hips that has been my ongoing issue for over three years. I have been seeing him several times over last year especially when he is in
Milwaukee and his massages never disappoint. If you are looking for a great professional and a great massage check him out.

This was the first appointment with Eugene. Booking was easy - a couple texts and we were set. He arrived early, got set up and in no time he was finding tension I didn't know I had. He used a combination of massage techniques that told me I have found a good therapist I can book with regularly. He is very congenial and professional. I would highly recommend him to friends.

Feb. 26, 2018 in Chicago, IL (in-studio)

Eugine is a very friendly masseur I've ever booked with.his deep pressure therapeutic massage i had a relaxed time he is outstanding and just as he and other reviewers describe about him in his ad. I was not disappointed ffor at all but extremely pleased with the session and the results. I'd highly recommend the 90-minute session. Overall, it is well worth the travel to the city .

Eugene gives a great massage. Very nice and a great sense of humor. Highly recommended!

Oct. 23, 2017 in Milwaukee, WI (in-studio)

Eugene seems like a great guy! He was very friendly and engaging from setting the appointment through the massage and good-bye. The massage was a perfect balance between healing and relaxation. I look forward to seeing Eugene again!

Sept. 25, 2017 in Milwaukee, WI (in-studio)

I have been looking for a good massage therapist in Milwaukee for some time and until now have been unable to find one. When I seen Eugene was coming to Milwaukee decided to give him a try. Wow! What a find. Have had problems with sore muscles in my upper back right next to the shoulder blades for a couple of weeks. No matter what I did could not relieve the pain . Told Eugene about the problem and he said it was from not stretching after working out. He talked at length about the importance of stretching as he was working on that section of my back. He spent a great deal of time working on that area and by the time he was done the pain was gone. He also gave me some stretching exercises to do after working out. You can tell he is passionate about his work. The good news is he comes to Milwaukee once a month. I am so impressed with Eugene that I will book an appointment every time he is in Milwaukee. Give him a try you will not be disappointed.

Aug. 26, 2017 in Chicago, IL (in-studio)

One of the best massage therapist, a combination of intuitive touch, and effective, methodical movement and overall firm touch with great muscle relaxation. Left feeling completely calm and destressed.

July 29, 2017 in Chicago, IL (in-studio)

My second massage with Eugene. Still as nice and kind as the first time. He remembered where I was having pain and I didn't have to say anything he just took care of me.

June 20, 2017 in Chicago, IL (in-studio)

This was the first massage I have ever gotten. I'm so glad I chose Eugene for the job. He is welcoming, kind, and experienced.

I run 4 days a week and have a labor intensive job. This causes neck, shoulder, back, leg, and foot pain. After one massage with Eugene, I can already tell it is gone. I enjoy deep pressure and he maintained the perfect amount of deepness the entire hour. Eugene is amazing and you will not be disappointed. I will definitely be a regular of his from now on!

June 02, 2017 in Chicago, IL (in-studio)

The new location is perfect! The studio is on a quite street and there is very easy parking with out any meters so you can park for free. The massage pressure was really good and I felt very relaxed at the end.

May 30, 2017 in Chicago, IL (in-studio)

I have been getting massages from Eugene for over two years and his quality and responsiveness are great. He knows my problem areas quite well by now and he effectively modifies his techniques to help soothe any pain I'm experiencing. Based on my appointments to alleviate pain to those that are more focused on relaxing, I highly recommend Eugene. He's a wonderful massage therapist and a wonderful man.

March 24, 2017 in Chicago, IL (in-studio)

This was my first massage but, I was in town on business and had a nagging issue with pain in my lower back. I read through a lot of reviews and was impressed with Eugene's experience. I'm happy I connected with him as, he made me feel very comfortable and at ease. He is skilled and knew just how to help me out. I hope I can find someone back home who can continue to help heal me. Thanks Eugene!

Jan. 23, 2017 in Chicago, IL (in-studio)

Eugene has a thorough knowledge of massage and the best therapeutic techniques to use for a myriad of problems and issues someone like me may have, hence he is able to tailor his massage to make it the most efficacious to suit a client's needs. His massage utilzed needed deep pressure but also was soothing and invigorating.
His studio is easy enough to travel to, not far off the Eisenhower, with secure parking a bonus. And it's just a short Uber/Lyft ride from the Loop.
He is very personable and communicates well in a timely manner, which is much appreciated. I highly recommend Eugene if not for nothing but his therapeutic massage skills.

Jan. 20, 2017 in Chicago, IL (mobile)

I'm a first time client with Eugene - scheduling an appointment because of his long list of great reviews and his very reasonable rates. Having had a lot of massages in my life - I thought this was too good to be true but figured I'd give him a try. And I'm so glad I did. First, he was so easy and thoughtful to communicate with (via text with me). He was right on time and I had absolutely no issues having him in my home. My session was perfect. He was very connected to my needs and shifted from deep pressure in areas I needed attention - to longer, slower, more thoughtful strokes. I can't stress what a great experience it was.

Dec. 03, 2016 in Chicago, IL (in-studio)

It was my second massage with Eugene and it was as good as the first. The pressure was consistent throughout and I was so relaxed the time just flew by. It was so easy to make an appointment and Eugene is such a nice person. I will certainly be back!

Nov. 03, 2016 in Chicago, IL (in-studio)

Eugene's massage was just what I needed on a short, busy trip to Chicago.I was able to relax under his care and recharge to make the most out of my time there. If I lived closer I would surely see him again and again for bodywork.

Aug. 28, 2016 in Chicago, IL (mobile)

Eugene continues to be my only masseur. I make appointments with him at least every other week. His massages are unique and tailored to my therapeutical needs. He always reduces my stress and any pains that I may have. Always on time and always in an excellent mood and ready to go to work. I highly recommend him.

Sept. 05, 2016 in Chicago, IL (in-studio)

Eugene does an excellent deep tissue massage. His techniques defines the best of decompression time and relaxation. His place can be easily access from the city and very comfortable. If you want your money's worth, Eugene delivers it all.

June 19, 2016 in Chicago, IL (in-studio)

I've enjoyed Eugene's work almost monthly for over a year. He is consistently professional, attentive and careful to work with you in focusing on areas needing attention. His personality and quiet respect for his client make the experience much more than simple massage; his touch is always deliberate and goes as deep as necessary I highly recommend his excellent service. His studio, centrally located with ample parking, reflects his style and professionalism.

Nov. 06, 2015 in Chicago, IL (in-studio)

This was a first time massage for me. I found Eugene's studio with no problem. He was very professional, checking in to see if the pressure was good. Never felt rushed, easy to talk with. He also knows a lot about nutrition and fitness. I definitely recommend him.

Nov. 01, 2015 in Chicago, IL (in-studio)

Eugene is consistently the most respectful, professional, and gifted massage therapist I know. I have hired him for years .. .he is always a pro, and surprises me with his new techniques without abandoning the old ones. Moreover he is honest. After tonight's session he texted me that I had overpaid him and needed to give me credit on the next session.

Hire this lovely gentleman ... you will be very glad that you did.
