"It is possible at any hour you please to find a retreat within yourself. For nowhere can a man withdraw to a more untroubled quietude than in his own soul." Marcus Aurelius.

When the day and week becomes hectic, a session on my massage is all you need to relax and recharge. My techniques combine the best elements from Swedish and Therapeutic Massage, along with firmer pressure in the areas where the... typical modern man carries tension ( legs from sitting for long commutes to a desk job/ shoulders from clutching a steering wheel and working on a computer ). I take great pride in my practice, and most clients remark they have never had quite the type of massage that I offer. Much of this is based on intuition, and the rest stems from offering massage for 18 years to the LGBT community.

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

A hidden gem amongst the SF landscape of Massage Therapy.

Discovering Charlie's massage is like finding that neighborhood restaurant; unpretentious and perfectly priced from a gracious host, and that's the reason I keep returning to Charlie. He's friendly and very qualified, and even though his availability to see clients is limited to a few days a week, typically he can find a spot for me ( even when I only offer him a short amount of notice )

Three massages with Charlie at the time of this review and plan more in the future. Found him perfect when just want to relax during a massage, not tense up in anticipation on which knot the therapist will be working on next. Charlie's combo of Swedish and (light) sports massage brings the bliss: I think I doze a couple of times. Charlie himself is a pleasant conversationalist but knows when the client wants to chill (like, when snoring).

Met the pets. They're cute, quiet and absolutely not a bother.
