I’m experienced in Deep Tissue, Relaxation, Sports massage and body work. I am trained in South America, Spain and Thailand by professionals in the spiritual, healing field and have worked extensively with the gay and LGBT community. I am trained in many massage styles and am able to adapt to all body types applying my massage techniques.

I incorporate a variety of techniques from my training in deep tissue and Swedish. I can use strong pressure or lighter relaxing... touch according to your needs. I always listen to the energy of your body. I work on a professional memory foam mat or table in my apartment - a peaceful comfortable space in the center of New York City with a calming atmosphere generated through unobtrusive music, plants, art and my own sense of inner peace. You won’t believe you are in midtown. Strong pressure, muscle-focused work in the areas you need it most are balanced with gentle pressure and kneading techniques to other areas of your body.

Also ask me for my meditation coaching, let me take your mind to the most peaceful place and recharge your spirit.

What a great massage by a talented, sweet, and soft spoken man. I wasn’t sure what to expect but I finished feeling rejuvenated and very pleased with his services. When I come back to NYC I will most certainly call him again! Thank you Carlos for everything!

It was my first time getting a massage, Carlos was really patient, got all the knots out of my back, and used amazing oils on my skin. Would definitely recommend if you're needing a fix me up and you happen to be in the city!

I chose to do the 60min massage plus the body scrub... and it was 100% worth it. Incredible massage technique combined with the exfoliating scrub was absolutely incredible.

10/10, would absolutely book again!

Awesome massage techniques, personality, and ambiance. He is an excellent Massage Therapist. His training and experience shows in his ability. The massage exceeded my expectations. First class in all aspects. I look forward to returning to his studio in the near future and having another wonderful massage. An amazing experience!

Carlos provided an extremely effective massage and really got deep into the muscles. I had requested deep pressure and it is not often delivered, but Carlos truly brought it and I was still feeling it the next day! It was very easy to make the appointment as he got back to me immediately and his location is prime. I will not hesitate to go back again!

Finally! A good massage! I've never written a review before, but Carlos is the best. He has serious skills, and went deep to work out all my knots. His place is very relaxing, and he uses a variety of cremes/oils depending on what he's working on. I will definitely be going back.

I have been to see Carlos twice now, once for a massage and once for a body scrub. He is really great -- he welcomes you to a cozy and art-filled studio space and immediately makes you feel at home. As a masseur he was responsive and intuitive. He is easy to talk to and an all-around nice guy. I returned for a body scrub, which was super relaxing. I left feeling totally refreshed, with my skin looking great. I would return to Carlos for either service again!
