I have seen John 4 times now, and every time has been exceptional. From the time I drive into his private garden parking, I feel the stress leaving. John is warm and inviting, and always welcomes me with a smile. His massage techniques are so good!! This guy has the magic touch. I’m looking forward to my next session.

John is a TRULY gifted masseur. This is my 3rd or 4th time seeing him, and I am addicted to the experience. Private parking, beautiful garden entrance, great massage table, and he just makes me feel at home. Each time I get a massage from John, he checks in to see if any new body issues exist and he is a master at searching out my aches and pains. Strong , soothing, and excellent! Thats how I would describe a session with John. I travel up from San Jose and yes, he is worth the drive !

John continues to be my favorite massage therapist. It can sometimes be a little tough to get in last minute, but it is worth booking in advance. His place is warm and comfortable with private parking. Really nice music, and his massage table is extra nice. You couldn't ask for a nicer guy too. I always feel totally relaxed when I leave. He is a first class Masseur!

John is a 5 star experience! I see him once monthly, and have never been disappointed. Warm and comfortable private massage suite, music, heated table, private parking, and John is so welcoming! He is vaccinated, and follows protocols that make me feel cared for and safe. He creates the massage just for me, going deep where needed, and relaxing, nurturing and comfortable techniques that made me drift off. A steaming hot towel, and he has the Best Music for relaxation. After so many great massages, I decided to write a review.

John Paul is a true professional — responsive, skilled and polite. I have had the pleasure to book multiple 90 minute massage appointments over the past 1.5 years and he never disappoints!

Your experience begins with John Paul greeting you in a private (gated) off street parking spot. You are then welcomed into his home wherein John Paul takes the time to understand your massage needs (i.e. general body pain, stress/tension areas and or athletic soreness).

Once you are on his massage table the real magic begins. John Paul uses his training, technique, oils, relaxation music and exceptionally strong hands to move you into a state of complete relaxation. From the beginning of your massage until the very end John Paul is 100% focused on reading your body and adjusting both pressure and technique.

John Paul is a gentleman in every sense of the word and he takes pride in offering a clean, professional, comfortable massage environment. You will never feel rushed, it is as if time stands still. After each massage I felt relaxed, rejuvenated and frankly like a ‘new man’!

Do yourself a favor and book time with John Paul and experience him for yourself. I always look forward to my next massage!

I have had massages before and know their lasting feeling when you have a massage therapist who has a unique technique. JohnPaul touch was amazingly refreshing and it rejuvenated me. He has a welcoming smile and his professional expertise from beginning to the end made the massage much more relaxing and meaningful. The oils he uses are therapeutic and I chose not to wash them off.
