Simply put, Eric is amazing.

He exudes warmth and kindness from the moment you meet him. His years of experience become evident the moment he begins a massage curtailed to your needs.

I deal with sciatic pain. Eric was very familiar with this and knew the exact approach we should take. He talked me thorough every step of the massage. I (and you will too) felt immediately safe in his presence. He makes trusting him effortless.

In the days following the massage I felt better than I had in weeks, if not months.

Run don’t walk to this guy.

I had a massage with Eric in July, and from the start of the session, he made me feel so comfortable with his kind, polite, and engaging personality. Beforehand, we discussed some areas on my body that needed extra attention - in my case, my back and stomach. He continuously checked in during the massage and helped me breathe through some of the more intense deep tissue moments. While he worked on my stomach, I had a huge release of energy/tension that had been stuck there for a long time. After, I walked out of the session a completely new person; the stomach issues I had been having (which I had also gone to the doctor for multiple times) were completely remedied and I am functioning better than ever to this day!

During the massage, Eric mentioned that he tells the folks he works with that pain is not a natural state of being. Before my massage with Eric, I never realized that to be fully true. After, I completely understand and can confirm what he meant! Eric is not only an incredibly talented massage therapist, but also an incredible, magical, and extremely knowledgeable person. I would recommend him 100% and hope that everyone gets a chance to live without pain, as I am now, thanks to Eric!

"I have been having therapeutic massage sessions with Eric for over three years now. I have chronic pain throughout my entire body after years of dancing professionally. The most recent one was yesterday 10/30/19 and Omg! Yesterday’s massage was definitely one of .....if not the best session ever. Eric is so passionate about his work. I trust his intuitive touch with my body and able to allow him to work the necessary area. He is so in tune which areas are needed and can feel the negative energy that needs to be released. After so many sessions, he and I can work together by instructing me when to breath and relax so he can massage the area and release the tension. If you can reach that level of trust with him, he can and will do a magical treatment. My body hasn’t felt so good. Thank you Eric!" Timothy H.

Eric met me at his Provincetown studio for an hour-long massage - and it was fantastic. I work out pretty regularly, and I like a masseur to "beat up the muscles" a bit... and Eric's pressure was strong and deep. I was having some neck problems, and he started in by freeing up mobility in that area... but he moved down to problem muscle knots in my thighs that I didn't even know I have. I will definitely be going back (hopefully we're in Ptown at the same time!)

5 stars!

Very relaxing and comfortable massage. It felt like we had know each other for years. Eric used a wide range of pressure and was excellent at finding the trigger points that needed extra work and attention. He incorporated some stretches during the bodywork that did wonders at getting my hips, hamstrings, and my super tight I-T Bands to relax! Very professional and extremely easy & natural conversations. Felt comfortable & at ease in his apartment. I will definitely book with Eric again the next time I am in the city.

Eric is a talented and intuitive massage therapist. He found spots that needed work that I wasn't even aware of and worked his magic. I got up from the table feeling refreshed and a bit taller! I like a massage that goes deep and Eric didn't disappoint.

This was my second visit and I have to say it was even better the second time. Excellent service and work. Beautiful studio newly decorated. Relaxing massage. Will most definitely book again. Highly recommended.

Eric is a very caring and compassionate person. The massage transported me out of stressful realities. He empowered me to physically and mentally let go of it all. Not an easy project when it comes to the portfolio of me, myself and I! I will see Eric as often as possible for metaphysical well-being. His touch is of the angels. The experience was smooth and totally relaxing from head to toe. Eric has created his own zen combining technique and intuition. He is an A+ kind of man

Eric did a fantastic job of making me feel confortable and had a powerful massage technique which really helped ease muscle tension. Eric is also a Personal Trainer and showed me how to easily stretch my leg muscles. I really enjoyed this body work session and will be back. I also highly recommend Eric!
