By Magik Hands in San Diego, CA

Jon is an extremely kind and knowledgeable masseur. Also being a nurse, healing and caring for people are things he is passionate about. I've had specific trouble spots that we discussed prior to our massage session and when he was finished working on me, all of my knots were gone. His studio is spacious and inviting and I felt very comfortable there.

By Matthew Nicholas in San Diego, CA

Jon was extremely professional & has his art of massages down to a tea. The ambiance was beautiful- it smelled fresh, candles were a nice touch & even had air conditioning running (my preference). He was very hospitable making sure that I was comfortable the whole time & the massage felt amazing. I feel much better & my body restored after Jon's massage. I would highly recommend him.

By DaddyBear Mike in San Diego, CA

As a veteran CMT, I seek the best masseurs for my bodywork. Jon is brilliant in all aspects of his service. Thai massage is on a different plain than Swedish and Jon is the expert I will return to and refer others to. I was amazed at his abilities to manipulate my body twice his size.

By Zack in San Diego, CA

I always wanted to try Thai massage but I never did or I never found a genuine Thai massage. I'm a professional athlete and I appreciate the deep stretching because I feel it gets the body to how it should be. The session made my blood flow again and I feel really good after two days. Guys, it's not an easy session for those who are used to other types, but it's doable for someone who is, at least, an athlete. The session was one of the greatest massage sessions I ever had and I'm looking forward for the next one. Also, don't take a 60 mins because it's not enough to cover all the body, and trust me, 90 mins was like a 10 mins. Try it.

Jon was a really nice guy and offered a great traditional Thai massage. It was just what I needed. The ambiance of his massage studio was wonderful and he was very pleasant. I appreciated him checking on pressure to increase/decrease as needed. Definitely will book again when in San Diego. Thank you Jon!

By Namaste in San Diego, CA

I've had Thai body work before. It's one of my favorites for stretching, opening and getting deep into my muscles, but Jon takes Thai massage to another level I've never experienced before with any other bodywork. Honestly it's something you have to try for yourself to really understand. Jon has amazing energy, commitment and care for what he does. I had a tight hip and he took extra time to work on loosening up the muscles. You really do feel like a new person by the time he's done! Parking was easy. His space is very clean and relaxing. Incredibly professional massage. I wish I could see him every week!!! Jon is my new secret weapon :)

Jon provides an excellent Thai massage. Lots of pressure, lots of stretching..Jon certainly gets a work out! It left me feeling very relaxed and invigorated.

His apartment is very nice and the massage space is orderly, private and restful. Will definitely return.

By Steve in San Diego, CA

It was great. Thai massage does not use lotion, cream, or oil. It's lots of stretches and lots of contact. Jon was great and checked in with me a lot, but he didn't stop and really got me well stretched. Had a great nights sleep and felt super refreshed in the morning. I'll be going back to Jon for more, I definitely need a lot more!
Rated Comfort a 3 because the massage wasn't for comfort, but for improvement and you need to get uncomfortable to get there.

By Ella AE in Houston, TX

I felt rejuvenated after my massage. I was having a bad nasal congestion and stiff neck; but it improved after he did some facial and neck pressing.

Thai poses look intimidating, but Jon is very gracious; he will work on your joints first; and gives you a heads up before performing intense stretches.

Location: close to the freeway, the place is easy to find, there are lots of parking spaces, very close to restaurants (which you deserve after a 90 min massage).

Massage room: great ambience... the room is very relaxing and clean, music is soothing. I love the little bamboo table and cute little ornaments. It makes you feel that you're somewhere in Asia.

I highly recommend Jon. My best massage thus far. I cant wait for my next appointment!

By Michael in San Diego, CA

Amazing! I've had other massages, wiith varying success and enjoyment. I saw Jon's ad and was intrigued by the Thai method but also hesitant because of flexablity it looked like was necessary. Jon was most accomodating with my last minute attempt to schedule a massage, he even changed his evening plans. I arrived and was greeted by a positive, cheery and warm atmosphere and Jon.
His personality immediately put me at ease and it continued through the entire session. Jon checked about my experiences with massage and health and asked what I wanted. I told him Iwas leaving it in his hands and was never disappointed. He was checking about my comfort through the entire massage. I enjoyed our conversations and the silence, a great mix for me. The dead silence or shortness of some masseurs lessens the experience for me.
Jon worked my body in stretches, pressures, and areas that traditional masseges never did and left me refreshed and renewed in body, mind and spirit.
I'll be returning as I'm sure each appointment will lead to a deeping and more enriching experience and life. I continue to enjoy the benefits of the session even 3 days later.

I had reached out to Jon while in town because my back was hurting. It was great that he was able to do Thai massage and stretch me as I had badly needed. He is professional, personable and helped me feel better as I am writing this the next day. I would highly recommend him.

By JJ in San Diego, CA

I don't usually sleep whenever I'm getting a massage but Jon's massage made me so relax that I almost fell asleep, only if I'm not fighting it. Jon's massage is not a typical Thai massage that we usually get from a regular massage place. I highly recommend you try Jon's massage, it's so relaxing you'll come back for more!
