16 testimonials


I graduated from massage therapy school and received my license in 2007. From 2011 through 2014, I worked at high end resorts in the Riviera Maya like The Fairmont and Viceroy. These luxurious spas taught me many new techniques as well as the importance of excellent service and personable treatment. When I moved back to Chicago in 2014, I decided to work for myself and I am grateful for every single client that has supported my healing practice.
I have... created my own blend of techniques in one session including reiki, deep tissue, reflexology, Thai massage and neurocutaneal sensory stimulation. I am present and focused each session to rebalance the mind, body, and spirit to feel the areas that need attention.
Healing is my passion and it has become my purpose in life. Many of my regular clients confide in me to release repressed emotions or to help process challenging life experiences, and it is always confidential. Everyone is welcomed from all races, sizes, religious beliefs and genders without judgment.
I am very selective with my clients and I will not accept any unprofessional requests or rude behavior.
My maximum is 3 appointments a day so my schedule can book quickly in advance but I will do my best to accommodate your needs.

My massage with Cesar went well as usual. I've booked with Cesar at least 5 times and each time is relaxing and my back pain and shoulder pain goes away. He is very knowledgeable about the human body and is very skilled with dealing with my scoliosis and Parkinson disease. I'm glad I found him as a massuer and he is very kind and good hearted and great conversation and treats me as a disabled person with respect and care. If you book a massage with Cesar you will definitely not regret it and you will leave feeling refreshed and relaxed and pain free!

Cesar is, hands down, the best massage therapist I have ever seen – including those at some expensive, high-end spas. He has a wonderful ability to sense what techniques will best relieve the tension in various parts of the body. He is a true professional, clearly taking pride and pleasure in his work. A beautiful human being, inside and out. 90 minutes minimum recommended.

5 stars. My massage session with Cesar surpassed my expectations. Cesar was timely and extremely friendly. His smile, hug, and energy put me immediately at ease. Cesar's massage was in the top that I have had. His use of deep massage and light touch, simultaneously, brings you to another place. I was left feeling fantastic and ready to tackle another week of work stress and hard workouts. I cannot recommend him more. Book him, I will be again.

Cesar came on time looking fresh and clean with great energy. His deep tissue technique is very firm and strong but he also combines a soft touch that makes it enjoyable. My favorite part was the foot massage. At the end, he placed his hands over my face and the warm energy from his hands got me to see colors. I definitely recommend Cesar if you’re looking for a great massage!

Cesar has very pleasant and powerful energy. His friendliness made me feel comfortable and his massage techniques were very soothing. I have had issues with my lower back and the stretching he did helped release the tension. Cesar does very deep bodywork that but also combines slow light touching which made the experience much more enjoyable. I have found my new regular massage therapist and I highly recommend him if you have any issues or high stress.

Cesar came to my home in a blue Adidas tracksuit for a 90 minute massage and it was the best massage I have ever received. His pressure was deep and firm but not painful while also simultaneously touching lightly creating a unique distraction from the deep pressure. He checked in on me to make sure I was doing ok and finished the session with stretches and hand placements over my face. Cesar has great energy and is very professional. I hope he comes back to LA. Thank you!

Cesar is very professional in his communication and he is also very informative in explaining the origin of my hip issues as well as treatment. He uses his elbows in the right areas with the perfect amount of pressure and then proceeds with stretches. Cesar finishes the massage with his warm hands over my face which felt very relaxing and rejuvenating. I have been searching for a regular therapist like this and I will be a regular client now. Thank you.

Cesar is the best massage therapist I have ever encountered. His deep tissue technique is right on point and his stretches helped me recover from a rough week at the gym. Not only is he good at his job, his personality is very professional and friendly. I hope he stays in massage therapy after he’s done with school.

Cesar has a magical healing touch that helped relieve my shoulder pain and I was able to sleep very well. He is also very good at reflexology and I am very lucky to have found a great massage therapist!

After having many massages all around the world, this was one of the top 5! Good pressure, great technique, and very personable interaction. Definitely reccomend.

I have become a new regular client after the second massage in a month. The combination of light touching and deep tissue helps relax and release the tension. Thanks!

Filo is the nicest guy. Very welcoming and conversational. He alternates between very light touch and deep therapeutic massage that stretches your muscles and alleviates tension. It was one of the best massage experiences I have had.

My first massage session with this gentleman but hardly my last. I am looking for a new regular therapist and I think I've found my go-to.
He has a fine technique combining deep pressure and light strokes as well as excellent foot and calf work, which many therapists skip or gloss over.

Filo is incredible! I found him to be incredibly interesting, thoughtful and personable while making me feel completely at ease. He is also the real deal as a massage therapist helping me with some back issues. I have found a fantastic go to guy that I cannot compliment enough!

This man is amazing. His deep tissue massage is to die for! He will do lighter pressure and sometimes that's what life calls for, but if you are looking for a great deep massage you won't be disappointed. I think his rate is totally worth it. I wish I could afford to pay him more. Seriously, I always feel a little guilty when he leaves.

Filo showed up right on time, was neat and clean and very personable. We got right to the session and he provided a very comfortable deep tissue massage. Great attention to detail and gave great feet!
