Alex provided one of the best massage experiences I have ever received. His mixture of various modalities, intuition, and expert touch create a truly unique and transcendental experience. Alex is easy to contact, extremely professional, friendly, and a beautiful man, to boot. I highly recommend him and hope to be repeat customer.

Alex gave me the most unique and effective massage I have ever had. With simple stretching and acupressure techniques, I left feeling relaxed and healed, a feeling that stayed with me for days. He couldn't be nicer. A gentle giant (he's tall) with an amazing, restorative touch. I most certainly will see him again.

Awesome massage / stretching session with Alex. He devoted time at the beginning to thoroughly discuss any issues / injuries to ensure that I left with my goals accomplished. Very relaxing despite the technical expertise / training he utilized. Took his time and did a great job.

My massage with Alex was an amazing experience. He really knows what he's doing and worked into my knots immediately. Best massage I've had so far, incredibly impressive knowledge and great precision.

Beginning to end, a very therapeutic and relaxing massage. Alex took the time to address my intention and was focused on the results.
warm, friendly, intuitive and strong

Alex gave me an amazing massage - both technically as well as in a caring, holistic way employing various styles learned through his travels. He was accommodating of a last minute appointment, spent time learning about me and making a connection, the proceeded with a massage that made me forget all about the outside world. He is professional and respectful. A real guy's guy but with great charm and focus. I will be back.

Alex went well beyond what I ever expected. The most professional massage I have ever received starting with an incredible understanding of what I was looking for and needed. The intense massage put me in another wrelm of consciousness because of his specific instruction to breath a certain way and move in ways I didn't expect. Truly impressed and will return.

Feb. 27, 2017 in New York, NY (in-studio)

The most professional, thorough, transformative massage I've ever had. Alex assures complete knowledge of comfort level, requirements and needs before ever getting on the table and definitely goes above and beyond those. I will recommend to all.

Being fairly novice when it comes to massages, I had some apprehension at the onset.
Alex was disarming and welcoming from the very first text exchange.

After relating to him my goals for the massage - relief from a high stress period along with some work on an old injury, he set forth a clear plan.I found his direction and explanation to be knowledgeable, creative, and tailored to my needs.

He is new to his space, and still has a little settling to do, but the environment was very relaxing and functional.

The only regret is that the hour went much too quickly!

I have no hesitation recommending Alex, and certainly plan to return!

Alex is a friendly and skillful massage therapist. Alex listens and finds the best way to suit your massage needs. Strong hands, great environment, professionalism, and great attitude describes Alex. I totally recommend him.

Oct. 20, 2016 in Brooklyn, NY (in-studio)

Super thoughtful guy. Checked in on pressure and comfort throughout. The massage was more Thai, ending in Swedish. Lots of stretching and targeted work. Really appreciate the massage and therapist. Highly recommend.

Sept. 11, 2016 in Mykonos, South Aegean, GR (mobile)

Alex was professional and welcoming as he made sure the room and table set up was to my comfort.

He was open about discussing what I was hoping to get out of the massage, prefereances in pressure and any injuries I might have.

His style was unique and effective. I left feeling relaxed and healed. I have some lower back pain that he paid special attention to and did a lot of help with.

I would absolutely recommend Alex and hope to be able to see him again.

This guy was worth visiting for pure therapeutic massage -- very skilled, very professional, and good sense of the way the body works and how massage can improve overall well-being and flexibility, as well as relieve stress. The hot stones and hot towels did wonders. I wanted to add another hour but he had commitments. I highly recommend him and looking forward to my next visit.

June 02, 2016 in New York, NY (in-studio)

Alex is the ultimate professional. Scheduling was quick, easy and he promptly returned my messages. He warmly greeted me upon arrival and sat me down to get to know me which included asking how often I get massages and if I had any injuries. He then explained his massage techniques in detail. I was then left alone to get comfortable in the private message area which included a few minutes of peace to slow my mind and prepare for the massage. The massage itself was incredible. He checked in to make sure the pressure was ok to see if any adjustments were needed to ensure my comfort. The mssssge included a mix of Swedish and stretching, just what I needed. After the massage was finished he left me alone to rest a few minutes and to let the massage sink in. Alex was never rushed. He has the type of personality that puts you at ease from beginning to end. I strongly recommend Alex and look forward to working with him in the near future.
