Deep Tissue, Swedish & 2 other techniques
I am a CMT. I hold an Associates in Science Massage Therapy degree since 2014 plus hundreds of hrs of practice. I am fully trained in deep tissue and Swedish techniques.
Deep tissue is similar to Swedish massage, but the deeper pressure is beneficial in releasing chronic muscle tension. I implement both during my massage sessions for your maximum benefit.
Swedish massage comes with benefits for both your physical body and for your emotional well-being. In terms of... physical benefits, a deep tissue massage can undo knots in your muscles, decrease pain in your body, and increase blood circulation, lymph and metabolic wastes from your muscle tissues.
I offer clean linen, organic/vegan oils, and creams, shower if needed, and a comfortable massage table.

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

I have known Manuel for about 3 years. He’s my go to massage therapist.
Manuel is very professional. He knows what he is doing. I’ve been having neck and back pain and tightness, and other tight spots all over the body. His massage has always been a great relief. He adjusts pressure according to my requests (medium to high pressure), focuses on my trouble areas to loosen them up, and he is great at working around injuries or scars. The sessions are always a delight: I either enjoy our great conversations or pass out from feeling good.
Logistic wise, he always corresponds to me in a timely manner for scheduling; he charges a very reasonable rate; he’s always on time with the sessions; everything is clean and comfortable. I strongly recommend booking a session with him. You’ll get addicted. :)

I absolutely love Manuel's massage technique. I've seen many therapists in the area, but have ultimately settled on Manuel. He is phenomenal. He applies the perfect amount of pressure throughout the body. He is very responsive and incorporates some stretching. Absolutely highly recommended.

Every time I schedule an appointment I am greeted with a very friend call or text and he is very fast at responding. The massage is the best. Seriously he should work for a resort, he is that good. Manuel knows what he doing and really cares anout his clients. I will keep coming back and sending referrals to him.

Manuel has the most amazing skills as CMT. He is a genuine healer. I was comfortable the entire visit. My massage was customized to relieve my aches and pains and it was very professional.
Hot towels and oils were such a nice plus!
The only thing was that I had to try three times before he was able to accommodate me on his seem to be busy schedule.

Manuel is very professional massage therapist and attentive to any special bodywork concerns/aches/pains, etc. He's helped alleviate a lot of pain associated with my lower back.

Manuel gives one of the best massages I've ever had. Manuel is great at getting back to me promptly and strives to make time to accommodate my often late schedule. Walking into his studio I'm instantly calmed by music and calm lighting. His massage techniques are fantastic and he's able to detect and address many deep knots. He uses really nice essential oils which augment the therapy. Do yourself a favor and schedule your therapeutic massage with Manuel today.
