I had the pleasure of booking a massage session with Mel, and I must say, I was initially hesitant about it. As a professional who has been suffering from persistent pain, I've had my fair share of disappointing experiences. However, Mel completely exceeded my expectations in every way possible.

From the moment he arrived to the house, I could tell he was a true professional. He came prepared with everything needed for the session, showing a level of expertise and dedication that immediately put me at ease.

Throughout the entire massage, Mel's skill and technique were exceptional. It was clear that he had a deep understanding of the human body and how to alleviate pain and tension effectively. But what truly stood out was his ability to create a comfortable and welcoming atmosphere. He made sure I felt relaxed and supported throughout the entire experience, which was incredibly reassuring.

I can't help but wonder why I hadn't booked with Mel in the past, as his talent and professionalism are truly outstanding. I want to express my sincere gratitude to him for the wonderful session, and I'm eagerly looking forward to booking with him again in the future. Mel is undoubtedly a remarkable massage therapist, and I highly recommend his services to anyone in need of relief from pain and stress. Thank you again, Mel!

Mel is an exceptional massage therapist! His intuitive touch and profound knowledge of the human body ensure a transformative experience. The ambiance he creates is simply amazing, making me feel at ease and completely comfortable. His sense of humor keeps me laughing throughout the session, and his touch is simply sensational, allowing me to escape and forget the world. Being a busy doctor in midtown NY, his quick responses helped me schedule sooner. I've traveled extensively, yet never experienced an in-home massage like his. I feel blessed to have met him, and now, a weekly session with Mel is a true gift to my well-being.

Let me start of by saying this man is exceptional, and professional. You could quickly tell that he’s a graduate of the Swedish institute by his intuitive touch and skills. I now completely understand why his schedule is always booked up and difficult to get a hold of. Mel’s vibe is chill, polite, friendly, full of energy and funny. I was shocked by how cool he was. Hands down he’s one of the top rated masseurs on this site. He comes prepared (unlike others I’ve experienced). I will definitely repeat!!! No matter how popular he gets I would rather wait to schedule with him then to miss out on this wonderful massage. Thanks again for everything Mel..

I didn’t expect this therapist to be so good but he exceeding all my expectations. Let me start off by saying his quick responses made it easy for me to schedule with him. He came over to my place and he brought everything need to re-create a spa experience in my home. It was exciting a completely unexpected! The conversation was funny and helped me to relax my anxiety. As soon as the massage started I already knew I would see him again!

I called Mel because I was experiencing extreme neck and back spasms. I accidentally pinched a nerve in the gym. He’s response was quick! I set up an appointment for him to come over. The friendly banter and conversation made me feel real comfortable. He then came over set up his table and equipment which transformed my room to feel like I was in a spa. His touch and pressure was perfect and intuitive. Also his stretching, hot stones and cold compress was top tier and definitely helped to relax my muscles and stop the spasms. One of the best massages I’ve ever received, I left feeling so much better. I would definitely book again!

This review is long over due, I was fortunate to book an appointment with Mel while he was visting Boston. He was kind, professional, talented and gave off good energy. The second the massage started I knew I was going to schedule with him again lol! His hands felt like magic and instantly made me feel comfortable. He knew the right amount of pressure to apply, and found all my problem areas! He left me feeling so relaxed, restored, tranquil and rejuvenated. He took all my tension away, and definitely brought life back to my body. It was definitely an experience!

Meeting Mel has been the best thing I’ve experienced this year so far. His skills are unmatched, love his energy, exceptionally clean and phenomenal apartment. The massage went so good that I had to book another session the next day. All I could say is thank you!! He’s so talented and surprised me with a complimentary hot stone treatment that left me so relaxed I fell asleep on his table lol. Thank You again Mel!!!!

Mel is a phenomenal massage therapist!!That young man has major skills!!
He was professional, polite, friendly, humorous, and made me feel comfortable. He came over to my midtown apartment fully equipped with his table, towels, candles, music and everything he would need. We had a wonderful conversation which shocked me how down to earth he was. Then he started, From the moment we began our session to the very end I felt relaxed and ready to book another session. Do yourself a favor and book with Mel. I don’t even see anyone else from this site anyone since I’ve met him.

Feb. 13, 2021 in Miami, FL (in-studio)

Mel is very friendly, chill and professional!! I saw him in Miami at his place. All I could say is I’ve never fell asleep during a massage until I’ve met Him. He is very intuitive, strong, and pays special attention. I really enjoyed his stretching which was an added bonus and how he worked on my glutes. I will definitely see him again.

I had a great experience and felt at ease from the first few messages with Mel. I was looking for a post-workout massage, and he was able to give me the exact therapeutic massage I needed. Absolutely astonishing if I would have know he was this skilled I would have seen him years ago. It was easy to set an appointment! He came to my place completely equipped. Mel is very generous with his time is very considerate and caring. I will most definitely see him again.

Mel truly understands the healing power of massage, as he exquisitely conveyed in a recent 90 minute massage I received from him. Warm, grounded, and sincere, Mel immediately established a comfortable rapport with me, putting me at ease. Because he engendered trust, I was able to open myself to fully benefit from his magical touch. As a licensed massage therapist myself, I can attest that Mel has developed a unique style that melts tension away. His skillful technique and seamless flow meld together to create a deeply connected experience. I have received many massages over the years, and Mel's massage stands among the best. He is the real deal, and I will be booking another session with Mel the second he returns to Boston. I can not recommend this delightful man more highly.

Excellent massage with some stretching. Mel does a perfect job of combining deep tissue massage with long calming strokes. His excellent touch, with great music in the background in a darkened room provided a great experience for the senses as well. Look forward to seeing him again soon, even if it takes a trip to NYC. Thanks for a great experience.

Mel is outstanding. As is often said, I want him to do well, but I hope he never becomes so busy that he can't take me! Big heart, great massage skill, great listener, and reasonably priced. The best.
