Overview

Update: I’m fully booked through mid-July. If you want to set up something in advance, read on :)

Gay massage in San Francisco & Oakland. Please read ALL of this before texting me.

Skills. Strength. Sensitivity. Style.

Each of my bodywork sessions intends to be superlative, and that's why most of my clients are die-hard regulars.

I've studied massage since 2009, in the US and Thailand.

Classic Swedish: Soaring Esalen strokes from heel to shoulder and back again with... raw coconut oil.

Deep Tissue: Slow and precise, freeing stuck trigger points and sinking into muscles you didn't know you had.

Thai Massage: Compression, bending, twisting, leverage and (optional!) me walking on you.

I use my fingers, hands, feet, knees, ribcage, shoulder and head to maximum effect.

All this is mixed together with dazzling technique, set to a bumping Spotify playlist of hundreds of songs I've curated.

Therapeutic only but Very connected.

For appointment: I will respond if you text, tell me your name, tell me about you, mention Masseurfinder, and use complete sentences. Thx :)

Testimonials

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

June 10, 2022 in San Francisco, CA (in-studio)

I found Dan after YEARS of searching. Other therapists say they go deep, but Dan’s massage REALLY goes deep. I’m an athlete and he knows what to do. He also feels like he’s paying close attention 100% of the session, and he’s channeling energy from some divine source. Extremely high quality sessions. My go-to every time.

MINDBLOWING every time. I have been a regular client of Dan for the past five years. His healing magic begins the moment I enter his serene studio oasis; I can feel my whole nervous system relax there. His bodywork is creative, intuitive and deep just like him. Do yourself a big favor and book a session with this massage master ASAP. Your body will thank you for it.

I’ve gone to see Dan for years. He’s brilliant! Super comfortable studio, excellent massage technique and totally professional. Big hands and feet help melt away the tension and stress. And the music mix used during the session is simply brilliant. Can’t wait for my next session! 😊🙏❤️

To say I'm a regular client of Dan's is an understatement; I'm on his table as often as I can snag a time. To say he's a master at massage is also an understatement - words don't quite capture the variation and exquisite technique of his massages, the close connection, the intuitive touch and pressure, and the quiet strength of the man. His gifts become gifts to you, which you'll treasure long after spending time with him.
