Ari has been my massage therapist for a number of years now. His skilled deep tissue, Thai and Shiatsu work really keep my aching joints and back problems in check. His new gallery studio is also a relaxing spa experience in and of itself. Thanks Ari!

I was in La Jolla for a wedding and decided to take in a massage. Ari did outcalls, and his profile information looked great, so I decided to book him. Communication and scheduling were easy, quick, and friendly.

He arrived right on time and instantly transformed my hotel room into a spa with candles, music, aromatherapy. I was really impressed with how prepared and professional he was.

When it came to the massage, he was truly a master of his art. His touch was confident, strong. He was so intuitive, and was able to anticipate and address everything my sore and tired self needed.

Ario is a really great masseur. Strong hands, great friendly attitude, he delivers an incredible massage with a perfect touch, strong and delicate as well. Highly, highly recommended.

5 stars aren't enough. This guy is amazing. There's no need to look any further. Watching him, after I was on my back, was like watching an artist paint. His style of massage was simply amazing. No question who I will be calling for a massage next time I'm in San Diego.

The greatest, if not the best of all masseurs in SoCal! Ario kills it! Deserves 12/10 stars. Got to settle for 10/10. One of the finest male massages made for a man's body and full of deep tissue and stretching. I loved every second of it. And will book again and again on my next mini vacation. Ario is the masseur to call in San Diego.

If you're into light touch massage, this guy is the BEST. One of the most relaxing massages I've ever had. I was left feeling relaxed and spent. Thanks for a great massage Ario!
