A thai massage with me will leave you squished, squeezed, stretched, deeply cared for and possibly dumbfounded. I have studied thai, swedish, deep tissue and other massage techniques with a variety of teachers and masters from Thailand and around the world.

Giving a thai massage is a mutual practice of yoga for the therapist and receiver. This technique uses gravity and the whole body of the therapist including elbows, fists, feet, knees, forearms, shins, ribcage and entire skeleton to achieve... an exquisitely deep pressure.

I also offer optional rounds of therapeutic flight where the client relaxes into a gravity-assisted floating massage.

Please inquire about private massage lessons or Thai massage workshops.

I am a proud gay man who loves to work with clients of all ages, ethnicities, body types and abilities. I feel particularly blessed by the opportunity to share thai massage with the LGBT IQQ+ community and our straight allies.

I have been a professional massage therapist for 20 years. When a colleague recommended Daniel, I was intrigued and had to discover his style and experience his touch. I was nervous when I arrived at his studio, unsure why, but that all evaporated soon after meeting him. He was warm, kind, and welcoming. After he checked in with me, we began our session.

I have to say that the way he moved around my body showed me that he had depth, confidence, and focus. Yet it was in the pauses where he sank deeper into a point that grabbed my attention, demonstrating that he was present and reading the terrain correctly.

What surprised me most was how he put me in a stretch; it felt seamless and effortless. By the end of our session, I felt transformed. I cannot recommend Daniel enough.

Reading the reviews for Daniel, I knew I had to meet him. I contacted him and he was very accommodating with my travel schedule. I was a little timid getting a Thai massage but never again. His studio is clean and warm. After meeting Daniel, my nervousness evaporated. He is punctual and charming. He explained the massage clearly. He knew I was nervous and conversed with me well until I relaxed. It was the most engaged massage I have ever had. His technique is superior. His touch was personal. I enjoyed and felt changed after the massage. Daniel is a wonderful masseur and a personable man. I recommend him highly.

Dan is one of those rare gems that appear once in a blue moon. He's been my go-to bodyworker for three or four years now, and nobody does work like he does - deep and creative... and simultaneously present and sensitive and connected.

Had my first Thai massage with Daniel and it was an incredibly enjoyable, therapeutic, and relaxing experience. He made me a fan of both the massage and the masseur. Not only did the massage help after a long transatlantic flight to Barcelona, Daniel made the experience more comfortable and enjoyable by his personality and conversation. He not only is extremely skilled at his work, but also clearly loves what he does. I hope to book him the next time I'm in Barcelona or San Francisco, whichever place I can find him. You should too!

I am a professional dancer, a competitive springboard and platform diver and a bodyworker with over 20 years of experience. Daniel is absolutely the BEST bodyworker of any kind that I have ever been to and that's saying a lot as I have been receiving regular massage for over 30 years. While he has had a lot of training and continues to take courses to further his education, the type of talent and intuitive skill that Daniel has is something you are born with. The depth, confidence, and focus with which he works is unparalleled. Thai massage at the level he performs takes quite a bit of trust in order to have the work be optimally effective and I trust him completely. I only go back to therapists who are superstars in their field, and Daniel is number one in my book. I'm thrilled to have added Daniel to my regular self care regimen. Thank you, Daniel, San Francisco is blessed to have you among its top healers.
