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

The massage I received from Ric brought relaxation to a level I didn't know existed. Between the music, the perfect amount of heat and pressure, and the self assured way that Ric masterfully crafted our session - it was a transcendent experience and one that I'm not likely to forget. Ric is clearly a consummate professional and a true master of the art of human touch. I recommend selecting Ric as your masseur while in New York - you will be glad you did.

Attention PLEASE: RIC. IS. AMAZING. Upon walking through his door, Ric was polite and accommodating. We briefly discussed my massage history, before assessing what needed focus during my Thai Yoga Bodywork session. My 60 min experience with Rick was restoratively therapeutic, accompanied by peaceful music, aromatherapy (that was new for me! Loved it), and led by mindfulness.
Ric checked in with me periodically to ensure the pressure was right, and to confirm that my overall state was satisfied (I was, each time). I'm not well versed in the techniques Ric was using (otherwise, I'd name them), but they were skillful, strong yet tender, thorough, athletic yet comfortable, and induced relaxation. His transitions (going from one position/technique to the next) were very smooth.
I slept GREAT that night and woke up STILL feeling limber and restored. I recommend you say yes to experiencing his healing touch. Also, Ric is sincerely a nice guy. For people like me, especially when in a vulnerable experience such as a massage, that type of personality and energy is mandatory, lol. I'll be a repeat client.

This was my second massage from Ric and it was better than the first which was amazing. Ric was warm and welcoming as I arrived. He made sure I was comfortable in his space.
His technique is amazing, deep pressure without being painful. He also incorporates stretching and aroma therapy to his bodywork, making for a complete body recharge.
