Had an amazing session with Michael, he was intuitive and incorporated stretching with his massage that helped to relieve sore muscles and joints. His space and personal touch made the massage experience that much better. Would highly recommend him and hope he visits the area soon. Thanks Michael

I had an absolutely wonderful massage from Michael, he is very strong and very on point when it comes to finding those spots that need a little extra attention. I would highly recommend him to anyone looking for a good massage. - Duane

I had the pleasure of meeting Michael Q for the first time for a massage. I was very impressed that he wanted to just sit and talk and ask questions about my massage needs before moving forward. His questions show his complete understanding of the human body.
I've been getting massages for well over a decade but since this quarantine and because of a lack of much exercise and movement I felt that I needed the relaxation and the stretching of a good massage Michael certainly provided that and even though I've had different massage therapists over the years he was certainly the best and I will see him again as soon as possible
Thanks again Michael.

I had very nice relaxing massage with medium pressure facilitated by Michael Q’ at his Studio.
He is very knowledgeable in his field and forwards said knowledge onto you the client.
I also appreciated the educational input he provided for me moving forward!
I will be seeing him again. Sean

My first massage appiontment with Michael was an introductory special. If you're debating it, it. His knowledge of anatomy combined with a seemingly other-worldly intuition is an absolute "must" if you suffer from chronic pain and muscle tightness. Michael is my new massage therapist, and the gains I've made in mobility and pain relief after one session are incredible! I whole-heartedly recommend Michael to anyone and everyone, his giant heart open to all shapes and sizes, walks, and creeds...truly an inspired healer. - Joe

Today I had my first massage with Michael. I have had massages from dozens of guys over the years and Michael is, without question, the best massage therapist I have experienced. I booked a two hour session with him, and the time just flew by. Michael is incredibly strong, but he checked in with me about pressure regularly to ensure I was conformable. His technique was flawless, and at the end of today's session I felt on top of the world. I felt both incredibly relaxed and nurtured, as well as energized. All thanks to Michael's skill!

As a larger guy, I have found that some therapists seem to barely tolerate working on heavier clients. Michael was welcoming and supportive. Never once did I feel judged in any negative way. His attitude allowed me to relax completely and truly enjoy my incredible massage.

I recommend Michael without hesitation. He doesn't live very close to me, but I am planning on driving to his studio in Sacramento for my next massage. He is that great a masseur!

I was lucky enough to be his first California client! 2 hours of heaven! I’ve had a lot of massages in the past but nothing like this. First off, felt like I’ve known him forever. Very nice person, very professional and knowledgeable! His massage techniques are amazing! So excited to have a new regular massage therapist in my life and so glad he relocated to California!

“Last week I had a wonderful massage by Q. This was my first massage by him and I felt the massage itself was excellent. Right amount of pressure, hit all the tight spots and really left feeling completely relaxed. I was also very impressed with the studio which was spacious, clean, and comfortable. Q is a true professional in every aspect. I highly recommend his services.” Greg S.-

Q has a very good massage technique. He left me very relaxed and with a feeling of well being. I highly recommend getting a massage from him.

This was my first massage with this therapist. He was very welcoming and offered a comfortable environment. He made me feel at ease and completely relaxed.

I scheduled an appointment at an event in Erie PA. I was nervous about getting a massage from someone I hadn't been to before. I was immediately made to feel very comfortable and relaxed. An assessment was made at the beginning of the massage to determine what needs I had and what level of pressure I prefer. At every point during the massage the procedure was explained to me, what I should expect and what I should do. The massage was very professional. I cannot say enough good things about my experience. I felt wonderful afterward. Thank you Q's Mobile Massage for a wonderful experience.
