Due to ongoing precautionary measures, massage therapy services may not be available in all communities. Please contact providers directly regarding availability.


I have been practicing massage for over five years now. My style is a combination of Swedish and deep tissue, but I do include elements of acupressure and stretching as well. Of course, this can be tailored to your individual needs. I have a great ability to read the body and give special attention to areas that need it most. Again, I want this to be an experience that is tailored to your personal needs so please feel free to... let me know of any specificities. I also have experience working as a trainer and this has allowed me to apply that knowledge and practice to better understanding my clients and what their body needs the most.

It is not only my goal to provide you with a quality massage, but also to ensure that you feel comfortable and cared for. I want my space to feel warm and welcoming to any and all members of the LGBTQ community. Hope to see you soon!

I contacted Carl because he was a little edgy looking and he had a great smile. The appointment was easy to set up. And it's a great location. When he opened the door, I was blown away. He's much taller than I thought and his online pics truly don't capture how handsome he is. But the real treat is how good and professional a massage he provides. He creates his own scented oils. Strong hands and firm pressure with some stretching. Just a super nice guy who gives a great professional massage. I found a gem. Set up a session. You won't be disappointed

The massage was, without a doubt, amazing. He made sure to make the environment as comfortable and relaxing as possible, asked how the pressure was and overall was the kindest masseur I’ve met. Charlie is worth a visit, and worth a wait if necessary.

Throughout the massage I found myself drifting in and out of sleep and even drooled a tiny bit. I will definitely be booking my massages with Charlie from here on out.

Great pressure applied especially to the back, acupressure techniques used effectively during the massage, good use of the space although it would have been nice to have less street noise. Charlie has a great talent to help you unwind and not think about the outside world for 60 minutes. I would definitely return.

Charlie's massage was amazing! He was very quick to respond and his down to earth demeanor was very comforting. The pressure and strokes of the massage were just what I was looking for, I will definitely book again when I'm in town.
