Due to Covid, it's been a long while since my last massage. I texted Mike. He responded immediately, and was able to schedule me last minute which I really appreciated. He greeted me warmly when I got to his place. Strong presence. Calm and friendly. I've gained a bit of weight over the past year, and I am kind of self-conscious about it. Once on his table, I immediately felt at ease. Zen-like. His touch is amazing! He intuitively knew which areas to focus on, and worked intensively in certain areas, (like forearms, calves, glutes) other masseurs I'd previously been to had barely nudged. I had originally booked 1 Hour but extended to the 90 minutes. I could go on, but, I'll just say this was HANDS DOWN THE BEST MASSAGE I'VE EVER HAD!!

Michael has been my choice of masseurs for quite a while. Always fresh and never boring, Michael has the intuition for the male body that make his massages outstanding. I feel special when I enter Michael’s massage studio. It is a clean, warm, quiet and comfortable space that with a choice of music puts me in a hypnotic state. His fingers always seem to find the location of stress in my muscles and pays special attention to those areas. I always feel fantastic and relaxed after leaving and that feeling lingers. Great masseur!

On a scale of 1 to 10, Mike gets an 11! I've seen Mike a handful of times now, and his massage just keeps getting better. Each session has been meticulous with his very strong hands and a sincere desire to get every possible knot out. I always leave feeling incredibly relaxed.

He never cuts corners or gives less than 100%. Booking with him is easy. Really nice guy, great value, absolutely give him a shot!

This Guy is the real deal! He is very experienced, advanced, old school, & does his job extremely well. He is knowledgeable, a good communicator, and knows how to relax you. He is strong, sure & smart, and fun to talk to. I booked a 90min session with Mike and was impressed by how he took his time. The massage was slow, steady, strong in some places, soft in others. Very instinctive. He will give you your monies worth, and then some. You will not be disappointed! I enjoyed my time with him. Can’t wait to go back.

This massage was so incredible that at one point I was tingling head to toe. I am a massage therapist and I’ve been getting massages for 15 years. This massage, I can say with total confidence, was top of the line. Writing this review the next day, I can tell you the positive effects last. Slept so well last night and full of energy today! Thank you, Mike!

I am a massage therapist myself but work professionally as a physical therapist and I used to be a dancer. I live in Philadelphia and also travel often. I've had a few massages while visiting LA, many of them with Mike. After my 3rd experience with him, I have to say he not only gives the best massage of anybody on this site, but he gives the best massage period! He's been doing massage for close to 25 years and it shows! He is truly gifted and I always look forward to my sessions with him! Now, when he starts my massage, it's like short-hand as he immediately goes to the areas where I most need lower back, my neck and shoulders. He does both strong and soft pressure depending on the area he's working, and combines with stretching throughout. Mike is a very instinctive and intuitive masseur. Having been a dancer, I especially appreciate the lower back and glute stretches. He has a lot of what he calls his "signature moves", which combines strokes and stretches in a way I've never gotten on anybody else's table. He also spends extra time on my feet upon request, (although I no longer have to request it). My feet are always sore and in great need of healing attention.

Mike works in a very comfortable environment, plays very relaxing music and has a warm, welcoming and friendly presence. He has a cheerful disposition, and he can be quite funny as well. It's hard to find a really gifted masseur...and Mike is a real find!!

Highest Rating for Mike!

Am in LA doing a show and pulled my back out last week. Yesterday I could tell my back was on the verge of going out again. I went to Mike and had the most amazing massage. He knew exactly what to do to help me and the whole massage was amazing. Great guy too!

I’ve been getting massages for years. Last night I finally decided to give Mike a try. It was one of the best I’ve ever had, if not the best! Truly Phenomenal! It’s now the next day and I can still feel the effects. He has a technique and structure like I’ve never encountered. As soon as he touched me, it was obvious he’s had years of training and experience. Yet this was somehow beyond. He also pays a lot of attention to detail, and extremities, like my head, my hands and my feet. He really takes his time. I booked the 90-minute session and strongly recommend you do the same. Make sure you ask him to do that thing at the end where he lifts you off the table. It does feel like you’re floating in space. On a scale of 1 to 10, I’d give him a 14!!

This guy totally floored me. His massage was amazing. Strong, deep, intuitive. His hands were able to find the areas of stress and work their magic. The massage felt like it was choreographed to his music. I've never experienced anything like it. 5 Stars! Definitely going back!!

Mike isn’t just a masseur, he’s a massage artist! I’d seen his ad for a while, but he didn’t seem particularly friendly so I’d always been hesitant to contact him. I noticed he was running a special so I finally made an appointment. In person, he was very warm and friendly. He immediately made me feel comfortable and I couldn’t remember why I had felt so intimidated. Then he started the massage. Whoa! (I had booked the 90min which I highly recommend!). His style and technique is very unique. Kind of hard to describe. Like other professional masseurs, it showed he had training, but unlike any other massage I’ve had, his seemed choreographed to his music. I’ve never experienced anything like it. I felt like I was being played like a piano, but in a good way! When it was over, I asked him about it. He claimed it wasn’t really deliberate but it had been mentioned to him by other clients. He said his mind takes off when he’s massaging and it’s all just intuitive. By the end, I felt like I was floating off his table. It was worth far more than the rate he charged me. I’m definitely going back!
