Deep Tissue, Shiatsu, Sports & 11 other techniques
I offer therapeutic and relaxation bodywork and am centrally located in the neighborhood of North Park in San Diego. I have studied over 1500 hours at the Pacific College of Oriental Medicine (PCOM) to obtain my Holistic Health Practitioner (HHP) status. I am certified in Corrective Exercise through the National Association of Sports Medicine (NASM).
My style incorporates Asian modalities, as well as western massage techniques. Although I offer an excellent relaxation massage using a spa-like approach with essential oils... and hot towels, my specialty is in therapeutic massage. My therapeutic approach assists in aches/pains and injury recovery. I focus on deep tissue to release adhesions, as well as stretching exercises using Perioceptive Neromuscular Faciltation (PNF) to increase range of motion, improve performance and reduce the chance of injury. I also utilize Asian techniques such as cupping and gua sha to relieve stagnation, promote blood flow and reduce pain. My fitness minded clients have found my approach to be the perfect complement to an active lifestyle. My more mature clients have benefited through increased range of motion and reduction in chronic pain.
I have been providing massage services for the LGBT community for over 8 years. I also offer one on one yoga instruction for beginners.

Dom is a really nice guy and a great masseur..especially if you enjoy being massaged by a masculine, big chested, hairy guy! Great conversationalist with some amazing life experience if you want to engage while he massages you.
His touch is firm but fluid, making it very easy to relax but he is happy to work on any problem areas and will get great results in relieving pain.
He works in a nice private room at his place with easy parking. I visit each time I am in San Diego and typically book 90 mins.

I highly recommend Dom for bodywork. I’ve been seeing him for several sessions to repair my neck issue. His expertise and techniques have made a significant difference in my overall well-being and quality of life. He is highly skilled, attentive and truly cares about his clients' health and healing. I am grateful for this services and would highly recommend him to anyone seeking relief from pain or tension.

I can almost cry on how much I needed this bodywork today. It’s been too long for this kind of deep work. I had no idea how much I was holding in. Thank you 😊

Dom gave an excellent deep tissue massage. My arm feels much much better. I also had acupuncture for it last night. There is vast improvement. Just at the very tip of the elbow bone where the pain was the worst. At the gym, my arm was not as tender or as weak.
Also my right hip where the arthritis was ailing me felt much better. I was able to get out of bed the next morning feeling NO pain in the area and today too.

I began seeing Dominic 5 years ago for an injury and have been seeing him ever since. I am an active middle aged (48) guy. crossfit, softball etc. I would never be able to stay that active without his services. excellent massage therapist and overall a very nice guy. Down to earth and a great sense of humor. I highly recommend him.

I have known Dom both as a massage therapist and friend for a few years now.
Not only is he is knowledgeable in the physiology of muscles , he knows how to treat problem areas with deep massage, stretching, and cupping.
He is very professional at what he does, yet has a wonderful sense of humor, a warm compassionate heart and an assured gentleness in his touch.

I just had one of the best therapeutic massages in my life!
A therapeutic massage engages your senses through the use of soothing music, aromatherapy scents and massage oils, as well as the massage itself. Because a massage is an emotional as well as a physical experience, a massage therapist needs a range of professional, personal, social, and physical abilities. My experience with Dominic was all the above and more.
Dominic is very professional, uses great technique and pressure, really listened to what was hurting and helped relieve the pain in my arm and stress throughout my shoulders, neck and back. He is also an excellent communicator and made sure he understood my goals as well as my preferred style (deep tissue).
Dominic is a caring and emphatic individual who has an intuitive understanding of the body. He is a true healer and it is clear that he is meant to do this type of work. Bless those hands!!

Dom knows what he’s doing. Not only did he find the source of my pain and massaged it out, he gave me some exercises to do on my own to strengthen weak muscles. He’s my “go to” source for massage now!

I don't think my neck has felt this loose and pain free in many years! Can't wait until the next massage session! I slept incredibly well last night. Thank you again so much for seeing me in such short notice.

Massage was perfect. I asked for a healing/sports centric massage and he delivered. Came into massage with cuff/shoulder issues from lifting/athletics. The next day all issues were resolved. Very professional and highly reccomended. Will return.
