Testimonials

Gathered by Aaron from admiring massage clients to share with you.

Feb. 01, 2018 in New York, NY (in-studio)

Aaron is a 6.5 - 7 star on scale of 5. I have had several different types of massages with him and he not only is well-versed in all techniques, but he is very open and easy to be around. He was very quickly able to identify areas of tightness in my upper back, shoulders and IT band and really dig into them. His back ground into different techniques is superb and beyond even some of the best LMTs on this site. Try him out and discuss what it is you need and he will astound you.

Best massage ever. Highly recommended.

Aaron is a very nice man , very friendly, and a really great therapist. We had nice conversation, during the massage, and his method and pressure was excellent, I will most certainly see him again. His studio is comfortable, and he is a comforting man...you will truly be happy that you booked with him, his bodywork is top notch !

Oct. 21, 2017 in New York, NY (in-studio)

What a great guy and a really nice experience! Being my first time with Aaron, I was a little nervous, however, I was made to feel extremely comfortable, and I was given one of the best massages I’ve ever had. His knowledge Was welcoming, as he knew where I needed to have pressure, and his touch makes you feel so good.
I thoroughly enjoyed my massage and look forward to seeing him again.

Oct. 07, 2017 in New York, NY (in-studio)

Aaron's massage was warm, welcoming, responsive and intuitive. He is a super-friendly guy who is connected to you throughout the session and makes you feel cared for. I would absolutely recommend Aaron and plan to see him again myself.

Aug. 27, 2017 in New York, NY (in-studio)

This was my first massage appointment with Aaron and it was amazing - he is very personable, experienced, and has a nice studio in the flatiron. He made me feel very comfortable and his technique was awesome. I like deep tissue pressure bodywork and Aaron didn't disappoint. I'm picky about massage therapists and get a massage 1-2 x/month. I'm definitely looking forward to my next visit with Aaron.

Aug. 10, 2017 in New York, NY (in-studio)

I get at least one or two massages a month and can say without a doubt that Aaron is an expert in his field.
He is professional, engaged and truly interested in providing you the best massage ever. I left relaxed and free of all the stress I had when I arrived for my appointment.
Aaron is one of the very best masseurs I've ever been to, and I'm certain I'll be back to see him soon.

Aug. 10, 2017 in New York, NY (in-studio)

This was my 1st appointment with Aaron, I wasn't sure what to expect.
He was very professional, interested in the type of massage I wanted and went to work. The massage room was comfortable and the ambience was very zen. I came into the appointment wound up and walked out relaxed, renergized and refreshed. I get one to two massages a month and Aaron's massage ranks in as one of the very best.

Aug. 07, 2017 in New York, NY (in-studio)

Aaron is a true master in his art. It was my very first massage ever. From the moment you walk in he makes you feel comfortable and instantly helps you relax. The massage itself well exceeded my expectations. Even the conversation was great! Will definitely be back again!

July 15, 2017 in New York, NY (in-studio)

Exceptional experience; Aaron clearly explained methods to best address my health issue; stayed connected throughout the massage. I could tell immediately that he knew his craft.
Ambiance great-heated table a plus! I love that he sang along with the music- felt like a dream.

June 04, 2017 in New York, NY (mobile)

Fantastic massage, Everything I needed. The pressure was great and I feel completely refreshed. Good conversation too. Highly recommend.

June 01, 2017 in New York, NY (in-studio)

Massages don't get any better than this. Aaron is skillful, intuitive and he caters the massage toward what you want. He puts you at your ease. I have had a lot of massages in my life and this was one of the best ... if not the best.

May 17, 2017 in New York, NY (in-studio)

My extra deep tissue massage with Aaron was great. I had a major issue with my right shoulder and Aaron spent almost half the massage just on that area. Also, you know exactly what you are going to get with Aaron because he talks about the massage before he even begins. He really knows what he's doing and has many different styles and techniques. This is not just a random rub (although I'm sure Aaron could do that if that's what you're looking for). This is a serious massage with great results. Highly recommended!

May 17, 2017 in New York, NY (in-studio)

I contacted Aaron about a 60min deep tissue massage with 24 hours notice and he luckily fit me in the next day. He suggested 90min for deep tissue and he was correct because I need the extra time. I have huge knots in my right shoulder which were causing me some pain. Aaron spent almost half the massage just on that shoulder which provided much relief and therapy. He definitely knows what he's doing. And while the extra deep massage can be uncomfortable at times (I was actually a bit sore the next day), it was worth it for a truly therapeutic treatment. Another great thing about Aaron was that upon my arrival, he confirmed what kind of treatment I was looking for before I even got on the table. He is well-versed in many styles of massage, so he wanted to make sure I was getting what I wanted. This was so refreshing to have it all out on the table (so to speak) before we even began. I feel like I've been duped so many times, so I really appreciated this.

I needed a massage badly from weeks of built-up tension. Aaron found every knot and massaged it away. Today I woke up feeling reborn. I won't wait so long for the next massage, and it will be with Aaron.

Excellent. Usually leaving a massage thinking I will be sore the next day. This was so amazing and so thorough that it was heaven and felt great the next 2 days. Will definitely go back.

Very puntual. Right on time. Nice comfortable studio. Great personality. Fantastic massage. Relaxing to the max.

April 06, 2017 in New York, NY (in-studio)

First time with Aaron and he's great! He really knows massage and it shows. The session throughout was fluid and really well done. And he works in a great space. I will be a regular for sure.

April 06, 2017 in New York, NY (in-studio)

I've been looking for a really skilled massage therapist in NYC for about a year. Finally found him! Aaron really knows what he's doing. Fantastic technique, knowledgable about the body, focussed on your needs. He's top notch.

April 04, 2017 in New York, NY (in-studio)

I have not been so pleased with a massage in a long time. Aaron's studio was so nice. It's a professional studio, but it was still inviting and tranquil. He was so pleasant and made me feel so comfortable from beginning to end.

Aaron was great t figuring out exactly what I wanted/needed by asking questions and using his skill to fill in the gaps. I will DEFINITELY be seeing him again.

Great experience. Ambience, conversation and massage therapy technique were all excellent. Aaron's superior knowledge and skill set is evident in how he approaches a session. He was also very candid about what fitness approaches would likely be ideal for me, which was an added bonus. Looking forward to future massage sessions and even some personal training.

Feb. 04, 2017 in New York, NY (mobile)

Aaron's one of the best massage therapists I've encountered. Very knowledgeable in several modalities, as well as about fitness in general. Great conversationalist, but also appreciates the therapeutic value of silence. Appropriate selection of streaming music. Overall an excellent experience that will have me returning.

Jan. 06, 2017 in New York, NY (in-studio)

This guy made me feel comfortable after a long hard week at work. His trained massage hands are the best. I know for sure I am going back to him after another stressful week. Great friendly and polite guy.

Dec. 22, 2016 in New York, NY (in-studio)

Pure bliss. I wasn't sure what to expect but needed a massage after a long work day and I got everything and more. He hit every spot perfectly and I had the best sleep I've had in a while! It was thorough, strong, and relaxing. The massage was on a heated bed, with warm oil which felt perfect in this weather! Also a great conversationist. Cant wait to go back

Nov. 20, 2016 in New York, NY (in-studio)

Aaron is fantastic. Warm, welcoming, thoughtful and thorough. I had an incredibly therapeutic 90 minute massage with him. He is both strong and gentle. Truly dedicated to his practice and clients needs. I've already sent my husband to him and look forward to going back.

Truly a great experience with Aaron
He is warm and welcoming, has a great massage space and delivers an amazing spa quality massage. Highly recommended.

Aaron is very pleasant and easy going. He did a quick intake and the massage was done on a heated table. His pressure is firm and slow (not rushed). He also incorporated stretches into the session. He has a very deep voice which is very soothing.
