I have been seeing Ben every 2 weeks or more less for the last 3 years! I am on my feet a lot at work so the stretching and deep tissue massage really helps ease the tense muscles. I like his clean space that’s furnished in a Zen, comfortable way. He is very prompt with messages and you will be assured of a reply!

I have had 3 sessions with Ben so far. His place is immaculate. Each massage is a bit different than the last. He mixes it up so it’s never the same. He has a large set of skills and techniques that he used on me. I absolutely enjoyed the stretching and Thai Yoga coupled with hot stones treatment.

I have been a client of Ben’s since 2007! I repair boats for a living and sometimes I injure myself st work. Ben knows how to stretch me and use deep tissue techniques to restore my body! His massage place is immaculate and super quiet and private.

I have visiting Ben twice for massages and scrubs. All the services were delightful and thoroughly relaxed me. The massage had a progression: light to medium then deep pressure and back to light. The techniques used were varied too. The sugar scrub refreshed my skin!

I have been Ben’s client since 2005! I enjoy his friendliness, high customer service and promptness. Most of all, he has helped me prior to surgeries with my back and hip issues. He helped me manage those pains using stretching, Thai Yoga and Deep Tissue. Each massage has been a welcomed part of my monthly routine.

My favorite Therapist in St Petersburg. Travel often to the area and every trip I book a massage. He uses various techniques - Swedish, deep tissue, Thai, Yoga stretching, and Shiatsu - making each massage unique and responsive to my needs. Even with the various techniques there’s a continuity in touch and presence which makes him one of my favorite masseurs. The studio space is clean, inviting, and relaxing. If you are in St Pete don’t miss the opportunity to use him. You won’t be disappointed.

I have had the pleasure of receiving massages from Ben over the past five years. I have used his services on many occasions, never to be disappointed. He has great attention to details. Along with his knowledge of anatomy, Ben has always taken incredibly great care of me. Once I arrive at his place the surroundings are clean, private and very comfortable. After getting situated on his massage table I simply relax and allow Ben to work his magic. Ben is definitely the best massage therapist I have ever seen. I highly recommend him to other men who enjoy a thorough and detailed massage. Ken

Ben has been a great find for me. The last year has been one filled with injuries and pain. Back pain, hip pain, leg pain(and limp), I was experiencing it all. Nothing was working to alleviate. Then I found Ben. He took the time to learn what was bothering me. He asked the important questions. He is gentle when needs to be gentle and firm when he needs to be firm. His stretching and massage techniques are superb and truly helped in my recovery. No more limping for me. Also, treat yourself to a body scrub. Your skin will thank you. Thanks Ben

My husband and I have been receiving massages from Ben for over a year now! He is always prompt, courteous and professional. He listens to his clients. He delivers a great massage tailored to the needs of each person. I have several autoimmune diseases and am in pain most of the time. Ben’s work brings me great relief from pain and totally relaxes me. Always a wonderful experience and we look forward to each session!

Sept. 14, 2021 in St. Petersburg, FL (in-studio)

It was easy to schedule one with Ben using the booking button. His massage space is neat and Zen like. I asked for some stretching due to a lower back problem. Ben delivered and some! The rest of the massage made me doze off several times. I would definitely come back!

I have been Ben’s client for about 2 years. I have lower back pain and Sciatica. Ben uses a lot of Deep Tissue and Thai Yoga massage moves in those areas. After each session I feel I am whole again! Sometimes I also book the 4 hand session he does with a fellow therapist which works out well for me!

Jan. 07, 2021 in St. Petersburg, FL (mobile)

I have had Ben come to my house for massages once a month for the last few years. Every session left me relaxed and rejuvenated. He uses mostly his hands and core strength but sometimes also certain massage tools. If I have a particular problem with a muscle or two he gives it all to solve it.

Nov. 03, 2020 in St. Petersburg, FL (in-studio)

I have been going to Ben throughout 2020.

I have to say he is one of the best, cleanest and most accommodating compared to all the other masseurs I have tried in the past. No one compares to Ben for a good physical, hands on massage as he goes above and beyond with his services.

He not only massages your problem areas but knows instinctively how to see you are completely happy with your massage. I also enjoy the highly relaxing body scrub — it leaves me refreshed and my skin glowing!

June 22, 2020 in St. Petersburg, FL (in-studio)

I have had many massages from Ben. He is always attentive and very polite. His studio is spotless just as he is. The calming effect is hard to describe. You can actually drift off to sleep if you like! Everything from his music to his table is warm and inviting. He has a 6th sense of what you need and want without telling him. I definitely look forward to seeing him for a massage when I’m in his area.

Feb. 14, 2020 in Saint Petersburg, FL (mobile)

I texted Ben and he replied promptly. He came to my hotel room complete with a comfortable massage table, fresh sheets and music. I had been dealing with sciatica for some time and a stiff lower back. By the end, all that extra stretching, Thai Yoga moves and deep tissue work truly relaxed me and allowed me to start my work day the next morning. I am so glad I called him!

Dec. 15, 2019 in Saint Petersburg, FL (in-studio)

The best! I always leave Ben's massage fully refreshed and invigorated. He always seems to know exactly where the extra time is needed and always listens to what I need. Highly recommend you take the time to try a session with Ben, you won't regret it.

I called for an out call to my hotel. Ben came with a table, clean sheets and even music. I received a deep tissue massage session complete with some Thai Yoga moves. The stretching really loosen me up. Ben never talks during a session and so I drifted off into dream land!

June 21, 2019 in Saint Petersburg, FL (in-studio)

His studio is clean and convenient. He has a dedicated massage area with soothing music. Once he inquired on the type of massage and pressure, I was on his table and under this strong and smooth hands. He provided a very soothing and comforting massage, which addressed all my areas of stress which he was easily able to identify as he was very intuitive in his services. He was not short on time and filled my hour appointment, with no rushing.

April 04, 2019 in Saint Petersburg, FL (in-studio)

Ben is a gentle, skilled and compassionate masseur and all those attributes are very apparent very soon after you meet him and talk with him for a while. His massages suggests he is intuitive and sensitive so that when he is massaging you it feels both very healing and totally reassuring.

Dec. 31, 2018 in Saint Petersburg, FL (in-studio)

I highly recommend Ben if you need a massage and have aches and pains, tension, or simply want to escape for a while into a space where your physical and spiritual body is pampered and rejuvenated. His place is immaculate, quiet and serene, as is he. Ben quickly assesses the client’s needs and temperament and proceeds accordingly with the session. I am a very satisfied, repeat client!

Aug. 24, 2018 in Saint Petersburg, FL (in-studio)

I have been going to Ben for massages for one year. Since the very first session, I have been delighted with him. First, contacting him is quite easy and he responds quickly. He is professional, caring, and welcoming. His studio is pristine with soft gentle music playing. He uses a variety of techniques during the massage and he varies them each time that one returns. I have always been totally satisfied-. If I have a muscle group that is giving me a problem, he does his best to give that area attention. I highly recommend Ben for your next massage. I am positive that you too will return.


Sept. 16, 2017 in St. Petersburg, FL (in-studio)

The bodywork is combination of stretching and the right amount of pressure to get me to relax. The massage is always a great experience!
