I am happy to serve all people in the lgbtqia+ community! My massages are imbued with gentle strength, soothing rhythms and compassion. I use Swedish and Deep Tissue... techniques as well as Ashiatsu, to address tension, pain and muscular imbalances while always folding in elements of smooth and relaxing fluidity.

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

I have been receiving massages from Luke for the past 2 years. He is an outstanding massage therapist. Luke provides a comfortable and relaxing atmosphere. The amount of pressure if perfect, and his intuition is outstanding as he always finds the areas which need extra attention. More recently, I had been struggling with right ankle pain which was limiting my running. However, after his session, my ankle was significantly better, and I was back to running. So, I highly recommend him for either a therapeutic or relaxing massage.

I had my first massage appointment with Luke because of muscle spasms that I was having under one shoulder blade. But I also wanted a general overall massage. Luke was very welcoming and friendly. He took a little time to get to know me and what I was looking for before he started the massage. His techniques are amazing and he is very intuitive. Best massage ever! And the spasm has ceased. I highly recommend Luke to anyone and I will definitely make another appointment with him.

Luke is a friendly welcoming guy with a great attitude-I felt comfortable immediately. He is strong and delivers the massage with beautiful fluid motions-his dance background is evident. Looking forward to my next visit!

Luke responded to my text quickly and was able to fit me in the same evening. He has a great, quiet place and he made me feel comfortable. He has great hands and I felt great the entire massage. There's something about his touch that makes you feel special. I'll definitely be back.

A massage with Luke is highly recommended. His location is easy to find, the room was great, and the music he played was very calming. He clearly knows the body and was able to give me stretching recommendations as well. I will definitely see him again.

Luke provided an excellent massage. The combination of his calm, welcoming & nurturant demeanor and his professional expertise made the experience everything I'd hope for in a massage. Some of the words I'd use to describe his style are holistic, fluid, and comprehensive. He provided just the right amount of pressure to help work out the tight & knotted sections of my back, which I was really hoping for. I will definitely be returning to see Luke!
