In today's hyper-connected world, we can all benefit from taking time to unplug, unwind, and just f'n relax. My bodywork offers that opportunity. Either in my well-appointed private space in Palm Springs or by outcall, I create a space that is safe & welcoming, especially for folks of the LGBT community.
The physical stresses of my time in military and as a competitive athlete inform my bodywork. I know what it feels like to be sore, and I know... which techniques work best for specific areas.
I offer a blend of Swedish and Sport modalities, using Lomi Lomi and elements of Thai. To say I am deeply intuitive may sound hyperbolic, but I believe that beyond the basic lessons of anatomy, safety, style and core movements we are taught in formal training, nothing compares with deep intuition.
All linens, surfaces and accoutrements are sanitized before and after each appointment.

I am so happy Mike is in Palm Springs now. He has "the touch." My partner and I set up two back to back 90 minute appointments in call to us, something we had not done before and were a little trepidacious about having a stranger in our home. Mike texted just prior to his arrival, was spot-on time and absolutely prepared. He comported himself discreetly and, as a guest in our home, was hugely respectful, solicitous and gracious. He set up quickly and competently. I was concerned he would get tired after an hour or so, but instead seemed to pick up steam! This is one very strong man, but he intuitively knows how to moderate pressure. His bodywork included long, smooth strokes on my back, and more penetrating and focused kneading on my spine, the base of my neck, and my shoulders. There is a stretch he does with arms that is out of this world. Definitely to be repeated!

The whole experience, from my initial contact with Mike, through to the end of the massage itself, was totally amazing. This guy is professional and extremely skilled. By virtue of his quick response to my inquiry I was able to set up a same-day appointment. The location was surprisingly central, easy building access, great atmosphere and ambiance inside his private studio including a professional, heated and very comfortable massage table, heated oils, and moist heated towels.
He asked questions as to my reason for seeking massage, questions about firmness, any injuries - all that stuff. I felt like I was in the hands of someone who not only knew his stuff, but was genuinely interested in me as a client.
The massage itself was an awesome experience to say the least, and I'd like to turn this into as much of a habit as my budget can afford.

He could not be more accommodating and gracious. Tehnically he knows what he is doing and is clearly very experienced as a professional massage therapist. He has a very soothing and awesome touch that immediately puts you at ease while at the same time working your problem areas to maximum effect with the appropriate pressure. He is also incredibely friendly and sweet -- you will be very happy to have chosen him for a session. I'll be back.

Mike was prompt, polite and professional in returning my inquiry. He greeted me immediately at the door with a warm smile and firm handshake. His place is private and quiet, clean and inviting. His sound system is amazing! We sat for a couple of moments to share some cool water while he went over any injuries or limitations, concerns or questions I might have. This really put me at ease. The massage was great with just the right amount of pressure. While he checks in during the session, he doesn't talk your ear off, instead lettes me float off into the music. I have seen Mike a number of times and each time I wonder why I waited so long.

"I was lucky enough to meet and book Mike for a massage at my home last year during one of his travel visits to my hometown. Since then, I have been lucky enough to snag my second and third appointments on his subsequent visits. Mike is always on-time and greets you with a very warm smile. He has a wonderful energy that is perfect for a massage, and demonstrates a depth of professional knowledge. The needs of my massages were different each time, and Mike listened carefully, offered suggestions, and adjusted each massage to be exactly what I needed. One massage and a follow up session dealt with a strain I had in a lower back muscle. He worked wonders in helping me heal the strain. Mike has incredible intuition and is able to read your body in a tactile way, applying the right amounts of pressure to help eliminate painful areas in a way that maximizes the benefit while minimizing the actual pain. The other massage I had from Mike was just for relaxation, and it was one of the best massages I have ever had. It is clearly evident that Mike really enjoys the healing he brings, and I would highly recommend him."
