Beat the heat with a massage!

Get out of the sun and pool, and come relax and unwind in the AC on my XL massage table.

Treat your sore muscles and stressed mind to some serious TLC. Choose between a relaxing Swedish massage, or a deep tissue addressing muscle discomfort. If you're not sure what's right for you, you can always go with everyone's favorite - "a little bit of both and I'll tell you if it... hurts".

If you have been getting too much sun, I offer spa quality skin treatments - Dead Sea salt scrub and mud wrap available to make your skin (the largest organ!) feel rejuvenated and baby smooth.

My goal is to meet your goal - if you want to relax and take a break from the world, or get some tight muscles dug and worked out. I do it all, and do it well. Your satisfaction is my highest priority.

My in-studio sessions in Cathedral City Cove include a heated table, warm back & shoulder pack and steamed towels. Outcalls are available throughout the Coachella Valley.

I am a gay man and a proud member of the greater Palm Springs queer community. All bodies are welcome and a final note, I have a full beard now.

Sam was truly amazing. His touch and ability to connect are really one in a million. His warmth really made me feel special and completely at ease. I walked out feeling all the tension had been taken away. I just wish the massage could’ve lasted longer and I didn’t live so far away.

I had a massage from Sam yesterday and I feel amazing today. His work was very specific to my physical needs. He is very intuitive and has great technique. On top of all that he has amazing hands and the cadence of his movements feels like a dance. Really well done and highly recommended.
Thanks Sam,

Robert from Palm Springs

I felt lucky I was able to find Sam available and able to come to my home for a much needed massage.
He is warm, friendly and very comfortable. His intuitive skills are excellent and he really got those tight Knotts out of my back and neck.
He is so good I've already booked my next session in a couple weeks.
So happy I found Sam.

A Professional Massage Experience

Communication was effortless and scheduling a 60 minute massage took no time at all. Upon meeting, I was met with a friendly smile, a warm welcome and invited into a very clean / private studio - solely dedicated to massage. Sam asked about my activity level and areas I felt brought me to his studio. He then went to work - and work he did. The massage was great and I appreciated his professionalism / skill-set he offered. I definitely wanted more - however, with any massage therapist I always opt for 60 minutes over 90 minutes for our first meeting. I was not disappointed at all. I very much enjoyed the massage and would highly recommend Sam.

I see Sam for a massage about once a month.
He comes to my place and since I have my own table so have gave me a small discount!

That aside, I look forward to our monthly appointment and am never disappointed. Sam has clearly been doing this for a while and KNOWS WHAT HE IS DOING!!

When it comes to massage, this is the guy for you. I can honestly say the massage I got from Sam was one of the best massages I’ve ever had. I also am a CMT and find it difficult to find a massage therapist that is up to par with what I’ve learned and enjoy myself. I’ve lived in Palm Springs for over a year now and I finally feel that I’ve found the best massage in town. He has an amazing touch and very intuitive hands. I booked this appointment with relaxation in mind and a little deep tissue work where needed. That goal was accomplished plus more. I left feeling extremely relaxed and like a brand new person. I highly suggest Sam for a massage whether you’re a visitor or local to Palm Springs!

My experience with Sam was exceptional!!
Scheduling my appointment was easy and enjoyed every moment. Booked an hour massage and should have booked longer. Sam did a great job addressing my concerns and as his post mentions, I let everything “float away” and absolutely enjoyed myself. His skills are on point!! I look forward to scheduling again soon. Thanks Sam!

A phenomenal massage. Sam is incredibly talented and welcoming. From the second I walked in, I was relaxed and at ease. Extremely professional and enormously intuitive bodywork. He knew exactly where my muscles needed the most work. He applied pressure intensely and thoughtfully - really going in on my upper back, and was responsive to my needs throughout the massage. I cannot wait to go back :D

Sam is a very skilled massage therapist. He used a mix of techniques and varied the pressure to relax some very tight back muscles. He's personable too. Very pleased with the session.

Sam was visiting from out of town. He was very quick to reply to me request for massage and scheduling was easy. The location was easy to find and it was clean and nice. He's friendly and engaging. The massage was great, offering all of what I would hope for and expect in a massage. I would definitely seek him out again when he's in town.
