Overview

After 10 years working at the spa to the Four Seasons, I made the move to being a sole proprietor; that gig was an amazing opportunity, it was where I was awarded “Best Massage Therapist” by San Francisco Magazine. I’ve worked for chiropractors, yoga studios, corporate , sporting events, hospitals and even a casino in Turkey.
My work is swedish based, Communication is essential.. I can work deep and specific... or gentle and nuturing; this time is for you. My goal is to surpass your expectations with professionalism and quality.

My story began in South Dakota. My first massage course was with a grannie named Alice Smith; the summer after high school. Then the Boulder School of Massage, the first accredited massage program, I graduated w/1200+ hrs. and honors.

This comprehensive curriculum included deep tissue, sports massage, myfascial/neuromuscular and more.

Testimonials

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

Sept. 16, 2017 in San Francisco, CA (in-studio)

Blaise is one of the best masseurs I've ever had. He's strong, caring and efficient. He offered a deep tissue massage and focused on all the areas that required extra attention. He bodywork was not rushed and was done with care and attention. His space is very calming and comfortably warm and he has the right soothing music on that makes you feel amazing. Will definitely go back and I highly recommend him!

I had my first massage with Blaise in 2004 at the Four Seasons in San Francisco; and I've been going to him for massage ever since. Blaise is the best masseur I've ever worked with. His communication style is easy, he listens well and he's got a thorough knowledge of human anatomy and a nice range of technique. I like very firm deep tissue work--particularly shoulder, back and hips--and Blaise is exceptional in this regard. I cannot recommend anyone more highly.

I first start seeing Blaise about 10 years ago and reconnected with him more recently in his new space on Castro. He's got a real talent for massage including a great sense of just how much pressure to use. He's a genuinely nice guy too. If you're looking for serious, high quality massage, I highly recommend you give him a try.

Blaise is the best masseur I have ever gone to. He pays complete attention to making sure that he provides you with the right style of massage, pressure and areas requiring deeper work and focus. Every time I come back to SF I make sure I book time with him.

Blaise was really intuitive and clearly knew how to give a professional massage. And likes what he's doing. Easy going and easy to be with. Zero attitude. I felt 100% better after I left.

One of the best massages EVER from one of the kindest, talented professionals I have ever encountered. He's truly a gifted body worker.

Blaise is a gifted masseur. I had my first massage with him today, and it was, without a doubt, the best massage I’ve had in eons. I have multiple tender spots due to cancer and surgery, and Blaise was able to work on these areas without causing me pain. In fact, after the massage, these areas feel better. While I was a bit nervous to have these areas worked on, Blaise communicated with me throughout our session to make sure I was comfortable and pain-free. The scalp and foot massage parts were also wonderful.
Blaise's space is clean and peaceful, and I felt at ease right upon meeting him. The temperature of the room was warm and toasty, and the massage oil had a wonderful but subtle scent. Everything about this massage went so well, I am certain that I will be a regular client. I can’t wait to book my next massage. You shouldn’t hesitate either. Blaise is a gem: he’s gentle yet strong, and he’s serious about his skills as a masseur, yet he’s got a nice sense of humor.
