Had a bear paws and body scrub with sea salt and honey. Fantastic massage/bodywork experience. Mike is masterful. His treatments have all been superior. He is professional but still personable. He is a great conversationalist with a good sense of humor to remove any uneasiness you might feel. He also can be quiet as he lulls you into total relaxation, checking in periodically during the treatment to make sure of my comfort level and was ready to alter pressure as needed, but never had to because he intuitively just knew. He finds trouble spots and solved the issues with ease. His products were amazing. Skin feels totally refreshed and renewed.

Mike is a Big Cuddly Muscle Bear and gave me one of the best massages I have had in a long time, used the right amount of pressure and relieved all my tension, I came home showered, and took a nap. Thank you Mike!

Mike is an amazing masseur and true gentleman. I I made a last minute massage appointment request not knowing if he could see me, but he fit me in his schedule. The massage itself was great. He checked in with me throughout the massage to make sure the pressure was good and if I had any injuries. He's very intuitive and got out all the knots in my shoulders and lower back. I highly recommend Mike and if he's in Los Angeles area again I wouldn't hesitate to make another appointment with him. Thank you again Mike.

Incredible. He is very friendly, professional, and talented. Mike certainly knows his business. I highly recommend him for massages. Can't wait for my next appointment.

Just a great massage. I have a few physical issues that were addressed perfectly. Mike always checked to make sure I was comfortable and that he was applying the right pressure. I can't recommend him highly enough

Outstanding 2-hour deep tissue massage! I'm a 61-year-old guy who hits the gym 4 or 5 times a week, and I'm an expert at hurting myself there. I'm also as flexible as a brick. And I've been under a huge amount of stress at work. The massage I got was exactly what I needed. He found all the damaged spots I knew of and many I didn't, and gave them all the attention they needed. I felt much better afterwards. It was exactly the type of massage I love and so rarely find. I only wish that geography would allow me to see him more often. I'd be a regular.

I texted to make a massage appointment. Michael was able to fit me in his schedule the same day. Highly Recommend! Thank You!

Great strong hands, super kind, friendly but not overly chatty, respectful. Clearly he is a true professional offering a legit massage service for a very fair price. I look forward to him returning to the area because I will hire him immediately to avoid hitting a wall because he is quite popular and it can be hard to get time with him. If you want to try him, call now! You won't regret it.

Fantastic massage. I didn't give him much direction yet he still found all the problem areas.i felt comfortable the entire time and can tell that he really knows what he's doing. I will be going back soon.

Mike is the real deal he gives a great massage and it's very easy to talk to. Highly recommended.

I had an excellent experience. Mike was very sweet and personable. He asked me what level of intensity massage I wanted and that was EXACTLY what he delivered! He hit all the right spots with all the right pressure, leaving me feeling incredibly relaxed and relieved from discomfort. I would highly recommend DaddyBear Bodywork Massage to anyone who asked. The best massage I have ever had! Thanks so much!!!

Mike was amazing. He is very intuitive and has an amazing massage touch. He made me extremely relaxed and provided an awesome professional massage.
He is very good looking and I must say the photos don't do him justice.
Hiring Mike was a great choice and hope to book another appointment in the future.
