Hi! My name is Peter and I'm a gay massage therapist who has served the NYC LGBTQ massage therapy community since 2009. My focus is working with gay and bi men from all walks of life.

I truly believe that every person, no matter their age, body type or lifestyle choices deserves excellent and caring massage therapy in their lives!

My specialty is Swedish massage focused on stress relief as well as deep tissue massage and sports massage aimed... at unlocking tight, knotted muscles. I include a lot of focused, full body stretching throughout the session aimed at all muscle groups. I'm also fully capable of doing a massage based totally on stretching, if you feel your body could benefit from that type of attention.

My goal is to make you immediately comfortable and at ease with me. I hope that you feel that my massage leaves you feeling less stressed, with less muscle pain and more energy for your day!

I've been fully vaccinated since Feb 9, 2021. I've received all booster shots as well. I'm very, very committed to the safety and health of my clients, family and friends!
Please also note that I've had my monkey pox vaccinations as well!

I am a classical pianist.
Peter is a gifted massage therapist.
He is a wonderful guy — a sweet, gentle, tender, and caring kind of fellow. Peter knows instinctively which muscles a pianist uses and knows how to give relief to those essential tissues.
His focused bodywork including his stretch routine for my upper body, shoulders, arms and hands as well as my lower back was just what I needed to prepare for my performances.
I benefit greatly from his massages and enjoy his amity very much!

Having many years experience booking massage therapists in New York City, I can say without question that working with Peter has been one of the most satisfying and positive I've had with the profession.

He's skilled, sensitive, knowledgeable and an all around pro in his field. I recommend him in the the highest possible terms.

Get ready for one of the most invigorating massages you have ever had, from a professionally trained, highly skilled masseur. I know, because I have been a client of his for many years, and I intend to continue for many more.
Peter is very charming and personable. His work is instinctive and effective, incorporating stretching and a firm touch according to your needs and preferences. His studio is clean and attractive, conveniently located next to a subway station. You will leave relaxed and rejuvenated, and your body will be glad you called him!

Hi Peter!
I'm not sure if you remember me, but I wanted to thank you for an incredible massage last June. You were very kind and helped me feel valued in ways I really needed. I'm still very grateful for the extraordinary connection I made with you and your touch I hope you're doing well these days. -J

Peter has been my massage therapist since 2010. Initially, I booked Peter to help get me through a very stressful time in my personal/work life. His smile, his patience, his knowledge and his kind energy are the reasons I keep coming back.
Through the years he's helped me with sciatica, elbow tendinitis and migraine relief.
The time I spend at his apartment is some of the best moments of my week!
Thank you, Peter!

Hey there,
I just wanted to tell you that the massage you gave me was amazing, WOW! I overslept this morning proving how relaxed you made me. I really felt the effects of it for days after. You really outdid yourself. I should have taken advantage of the first timer discount for a 90 minute session! You blew me away with your expertise.
Thank you so much!

Peter is an extremely skillful and well trained massage therapist who cares very much about his clients and gives them the ultimate care. He's vaccinated for both Covid and Monkey Pox so I feel very safe and secure with him. Peter is meticulous and his strong, caring hands and body stretching techniques are especially invigorating. He's also excellent at working on tense and problem areas and intuitively listens to your body. His apartment is always very clean and is a most comfortable setting. You leave feeling both refreshed and energized. Plus, he's a very nice and friendly guy. One of the best!

Dear Peter,
I would be remiss for not sharing the impression of my unforgettable massage experience with you last week. The combination of your technical and communication skills along with your caring touch elevated the experience to AMAZING. I wished it could have gone on forever. Your immaculate apartment helped me feel safe and at ease. I may not return to NYC this summer but the very next time I'm in town, I'm calling you!

This was my first session with Peter and there will definitely be more! Immediately, Peter made me feel at ease as soon as I walked in the door which helped the relaxation start to wash over me. A wonderful combination of stretching that I didn't know I so desperately needed plus the massage I was hoping for, helped ease the aches and pain that have accumulated after 1.5 years of working from home! Was a truly wonderful experience and has me looking forward to the next one...thank you!

I had the great fortune of finding Peter's massage services. I am a massage fanatic who has been on the lookout for a great therapist. I treated myself to a 75 minute massage with Peter. I am so glad i did! I have found my go to guy in the city.
It was a last minute booking. Peter was prompt, and professional in his response. His studio was easy to get to, clean and inviting. The massage was the BEST I have had in years. I cant wait for our next appointment!

AN INCREDIBLE MASSAGE EXPERIENCE! I have now had a few AMAZING appointments with Peter. His years of training and hands-on work are that of a truly experienced and gifted massage therapist. Peter was professional, kind, and caring. He immediately put me at ease and I especially enjoyed the body stretching and long strokes to relieve my muscle pain. His studio is like a spa, immaculate with a clean bathroom and fresh towels for a quick shower afterward. The BEST experience! I will definitely return to see the very talented Peter. Thank you!

After months of having no physical contact, the first thing I did was to contact Peter to see if he was working. To my great relief he said yes. Peter has been my go-to massage therapist for many years.When he arrived and I saw his warm, endearing smile, my isolated world shifted into a time of healing.

Peter combines extraordinary technical skill with the intuitive gifts of a healer. Peter knows my body and where I hold my knots and tensions. With a word, a touch, a stretch, or a push he works wonders.

Peter is such a kind and caring man, beautiful in looks and spirit. I am ever grateful for his care and particularly for his touch in this time where the kind of caring connection Peter brings is needed more than ever.
