Thx for last night. Your massage is quite the experience! I slept 8 hours for the first time in weeks. Bless you!

Thank you for an incredible massage Meka!
I feel relaxed yet invigorated by your bodywork.
It was strong and gentle at times and slow, yet deep at others. I also enjoyed the stretching.
I’ll definitely book with you again the next time you are in DC!

Yesterday I had the best massage ever.
Meka worked over all my tense muscles, making my whole body feel so tremendously relaxed. In particular, he took out much of the stiffness from my neck, which had been bothering me for several months.
Today I was able to swim the crawl so much better because my neck could turn more easily and without pain.
Meka is most pleasant - we had a great conversation in addition to the massage.
I will definitely set up an appointment when he next comes to DC.

Meka - Thank you very much for today’s massage.
No words, really. Was amazing. And magic. Will just leave it at “mil gracias” - a thousand thanks in Spanish - for your skill and care and attention!
Hope to see you again, sooner rather than later.

I had a massage appointment this morning in DC with Meka who is visiting from Asheville North Carolina.
As I entered his nicely heated and cozy studio he greeted me Warmly and offered me water and we started a conversation on areas that I needed some work done on. I told him that my lower back, shoulders and legs and shins needed relief badly. Meka began to massage with warm lotion and soothing music in the background. A bedsheet was laid over me to keep me warm while he was working on different parts of my body.
During the entire process as I relaxed more we talked about a number of modalities of self care such as breath work, massage and combining bodywork, diet with spiritually. He is a wealth of information and by the end of the session I felt extremely relaxed, the pains were all gone and I feel I gained a friend as well.
I could not recommend Meka more to anyone looking for a good therapeutic massage with a caring personal touch, he is worth every single dollar and I hope to book more sessions with him every time he is back in DC.
A Very gratified Client.

My joints, especially hips, feel so much better.
This is what yoga should be, a wonderful, relaxing, stretching session. My muscles and joints haven't felt so relaxed in a very long time.
Thank you for an amazing massage!
I may book another later this week.

“Wow, what an experience! Meka proved without a doubt to be above the rest!
When I first contacted him, he provided his schedule for availability and once I agreed on a time and date, he said he’d contact me the day before as a reminder. I liked that.
Once I arrived for the appointment, Meka greeted me, making me feel relaxed and comfortable before the session.
Once he began, it was very clear he knew his stuff, the muscle groups, how all were connected, using his firm hands, elbows, knees in various positions to work out my kinks and knots to relax me.
I might add he was a great conversationalist, not overbearing, just a really decent guy.
I’ve had many massages but this definitely was the best. In fact a treat for me was my first experience with hot stones that he applied to my back, very calming. He’s also very flexible using different massage techniques combined with his experience with yoga.
An unexpected surprise in DC, this was a journey I look forward to having again! “

Meka, once again, gave a professional, thorough and nurturing massage, focusing specifically on areas that needed attention like my hips and shoulders. I will certainly book again when he is back in town.

My massage with Meka was wonderful! It had been 2 years since my last massage, and I was long overdue. I had a lot of stress in my lower back and hips. He did a great job in relieving that built-up stress with pressure strokes and doing some fantastic stretching techniques that I would not been able to accomplish on my own!!!! I felt 200% better when I left the session!

Meka is one of the finest people to give massage I have ever known. An expert on the human body, he brings total relaxation. Very warm and caring in every interaction. I have been a regular for several years and cannot speak more highly of his work.
