A Healing Symphony of Touch: Unforgettable Experience with Corey.
I recently had the privilege of experiencing the extraordinary talents of Corey, a gifted and intuitive gay male massage therapist who has completely redefined the art of therapeutic touch. From the moment I stepped into his serene studio, I knew I was in for a remarkable journey of complete relaxation and rejuvenation.
Corey possesses an undeniable aura of warmth and professionalism that immediately puts you at ease. His welcoming demeanor, coupled with a genuine interest in his clients' well- being, creates an environment where one can truly let go of the stresses of everyday life. It's not just a massage; it's a holistic and transformative experience.
The ambiance of the studio itself is a testament to Corey’s commitment to providing a tranquil space for healing. Soft, ambient music combined with subtle aromatherapy set the stage for a journey into relaxation that goes beyond the physical.
Now, let's talk about the massage itself — an exquisite symphony of touch that speaks volumes about Corey’s unparalleled skill and passion for his craft. His hands seem to dance on the canvas of your body, intuitively finding and releasing tension with the perfect amount of pressure. Every stroke is purposeful, every knead is a carefully orchestrated movement that brings a sense of balance and harmony.
What truly sets Corey apart is his ability to customize the experience to your individual needs. Whether you're seeking relief from muscle tension, stress, or simply longing for a moment of self-care, Corey tailors the session with a level of expertise that leaves you feeling seen and heard.
Beyond the physical benefits, there is an emotional and spiritual element to Corey’s massage that is deeply profound. The positive energy he exudes creates a safe space for vulnerability and self- discovery, making the entire experience not only therapeutic for the body but also nourishing for the soul.
In a world where true connection is often fleeting, Corey bridges the gap with his exceptional talent, creating an experience that transcends the ordinary. If you are in search of a massage therapist who goes beyond the surface, providing not just relief but a genuine connection to your well-being, Corey is an absolute gem. Treat yourself to the extraordinary — your body, mind, and spirit will thank you.

My recent session with Corey, an outstanding massage therapist, was an extraordinary experience worth sharing. This review aims to encapsulate the essence of the remarkable massage therapy encounter I had with him.

Corey's professionalism shone through in every aspect of the experience, setting the tone for a session that was both therapeutic and deeply rejuvenating.

The massage studio, a true sanctuary of tranquility, left a lasting impression. Meticulously decorated and flawlessly maintained, it provided an ideal backdrop for a soothing and revitalizing massage. The meticulous attention to detail in creating a calming ambiance did not go unnoticed and significantly enhanced the overall experience. Corey's residence and the surrounding neighborhood exuded beauty and tranquility, further enhancing my sense of ease.

Corey's technique was a harmonious blend of therapeutic and relaxing methods, striking a perfect balance that left me feeling not only revitalized but also centered.

What distinguishes Corey is not just his technical prowess but also the holistic approach he brings to each session. Beyond the physical benefits of the massage, there was a sense of mindfulness and care throughout that I could actually feel. It was evident that Corey is not only passionate about his craft but also genuinely cares about the well-being of his clients.

In conclusion, my experience with Corey was exceptional. From the inviting home and comfortable studio to Corey's kindness, professionalism, and skill, each element contributed to a truly memorable and rejuvenating massage journey. Without hesitation, I wholeheartedly recommend Corey to anyone seeking more than just a massage – a holistic expedition to relaxation and well-being.

What truly sets Corey apart is his dedication to his craft. Throughout the session, I felt like I was his sole focus, and his genuine passion for helping his clients heal and unwind was palpable. He provided me with valuable tips for maintaining a healthier lifestyle and recommended stretches to prevent future muscle tension.
After my session with Corey, I felt rejuvenated, reenergized, and completely relaxed. It was clear that his primary goal was to improve my physical and mental well-being, and he succeeded beyond my expectations.
I can wholeheartedly recommend Corey to anyone seeking a truly therapeutic and transformative massage experience. If you're in search of a dedicated, skilled, and compassionate massage therapist, look no further.

I am a really keen sports enthusiast and sometimes suffer from aches and pains from so much training and due to past injuries. I have seen Corey several times now and he's helped massively, both before taking part in sport events and afterwards to help me recover. I had a massage after a recent Ironman event and my legs felt great afterwards – just the right amount of sports massage and relaxation. Thanks Corey – great job ! My knee is feeling loads better which is fantastic. Still a very dull ache but nothing like it was. You've worked wonders! So glad you are still going strong with massage after being on this site for well over a decade - so happy for you.

I chose Corey because of his testimonials and how far they go back. I thought to myself, "this guy is obviously doing something right to last this long on this site." My intuition was correct, Corey is a keeper for sure. I’m a 52 year old guy who has 52 year-old aches and pains. Nothing crazy, but it needs a solid, expert-level care to alleviate some of my discomforts. Corey is altogether amazing. His home is in a very nice area, and his massage studio is intentionally appointed and comfortable, with good tools to relieve the body and loosen things up. I’ve had hundreds of massages (many of them excellent) and Corey is definitely a stand-out. He really connects with the body, and has an incredible rhythm. His intuition is on point, and goes deep without being harsh at all. We had a lovely chat before and after, never felt rushed, and I left with my body being relaxed, but rejuvenated. I’m so glad I looked him up and hope our paths cross again in this lifetime. What a treat. Thank you Corey

Corey is talented at massage to say the least. Trust is a big issue with me and even though I traveled to him the first time, I would have him do massage at my home without hesitation. I liked that he has his massage license number posted - that put me at ease and made me feel like he could actually help with my sore back. Extremely nice guy, very confident hands and I left feeling better the entire weekend. Go see Corey.

MAGIC HANDS! I always tell Corey this after the massage. :-) His intuition and connection during the session are incredibly in tune....something I have never experienced. Absolutely recommend !!

Aug. 02, 2022 in Portland, OR (in-studio)

I have traveled the world extensively and have received literally thousands of massages. Corey is among the top tier. His home and studio are perfection. He stays focused throughout the session. An extremely kind, caring and compassionate soul. He has a unique style of massage that I have never come across before. I would highly recommend.

Had the pleasure to meet Corey yesterday after a long run in preparation for the Boston Marathon. I found Corey to be friendly and professional. Very comfortable and well- appointed studio.
The massage was top quality, incorporating a perfect balance of pressure and technique. All of this was topped off with intermittent use of various ointments, which resulted in an experience that was both therapeutic and relaxing.
I would recommend Corey without hesitation.

I dance professionally and travel the country with Cirque du Soleil. I have been to MANY massage therapists over the years and I would consider Corey to be among the top tier as far as skill level. His studio is incredible - very professional in terms of his work and an extremely caring and kind person. Immediately felt at ease and left feeling like I could get through another week of performances - would highly recommend for a professional massage to any of my colleagues at Cirque Du Soleil.

Absolutely therapeutic in every way, Corey has obviously been formally trained and know's how to give a professional massage. He was easy to work with when trying to schedule and followed up with me very quickly. He did his best to fit me in even though I know he stay's very busy so I really appreciated that. His studio set up is the best I've seen with a private entrance off his house specifically for massage. His studio is surrounded by trees on the side of a hill and it's located it a beautiful upscale area. The attached bathroom also makes it convenient. Everything about the experience was quality and I left feeling MUCH MUCH better! Thanks again Corey.

I am a traveling musician and I am usually looking for a massage when I am in a new city for more than one night. After reading Corey's profile, I decided he would be a great fit, as I have had many deep tissue massages and with my problem areas being so pinpointed, I figured his background as a physical trainer would be beneficial in getting the most out of a massage. He was able to schedule me within my time constraints, and even confirmed the appointment a day before. When I arrived, he met me with a smile and took me to his studio. He is a very happy and positive person, so I was completely at ease immediately. Studio was clean and neat, and very relaxing. We talked about my problem areas and where I would like for him to focus. I was probably a bit more detailed than he was used to, but he took it all in stride. Once we got started, it was clear he knew exactly what he was doing. He was also able to try a couple techniques that he had not before to work out a specific problem I had. He was a great conversationalist, and we chatted throughout. I let him know when pressure needed to adjusted and he was very attentive throughout, always asking how things felt. If i am able to come back to Portland, I would seek him out for another appointment.

Corey did excellent deep tissue work on difficult painful tense areas in my back, neck and legs.. He used heated pads to complement his massage work. Results were minimal discomfort after a rigorous deep tissue massage. He is worth every penny. Thanks for making me feel normal and pain free again. Results for me are everything and he is way ahead of many therapists that I have tried for getting results. I keep his number and call on him often.

Nov. 02, 2017 in Portland, OR (mobile)

Very professional massage. He knew what he was doing. Very relaxing. Just what I was looking for. Highly recommended.

Sept. 16, 2017 in Portland, OR (in-studio)

Amazing Amazing. Corey will adjust the massage to your needs. The space is amazing, and the massage as well. He is great at what he does. Will see him in the future.

Sept. 02, 2017 in Portland, OR (in-studio)

Corey is an outstanding massage therapist. He has a serene and relaxing studio with a heated table and air conditioning. I was impressed by the skill level he demonstrated and the variety of techniques used. He was eager to learn more about my specific tension areas. He dove right into my sore points and melted them away. From start to finish just a wonderful experience. Hope to be back soon.

Sept. 01, 2017 in Portland, OR (in-studio)

Corey is quite the gentleman. He was quick to respond and accept my request to book with him with short notice. He had a massage room ready and stocked with clean linens and towels as well as a heated table and A/C on a hot day.

At first touch I knew this guy has great technical skills. The hurt was so good and soothing that I almost fell asleep a few times.

Corey, thanks for allowing me to book with you with such short notice and for making me feel so comfortable in your presence.

Aug. 16, 2017 in Portland, OR (in-studio)

Great comfortable space and in confident hands! I specially had neck and lower back pain, wonders were preformed with Corey's massage! His private studio and space are very professional, I especially loved the heated massage table. I will be back very quickly. Thank you!!!!

Aug. 10, 2017 in Portland, OR (in-studio)

I went to Corey for a massage after experiencing sore muscles from a session with my personal trainer. No need to tell him where I hurt. He found all the knots, loosened tight muscles, and I left feeling a whole lot better. If you want a masseur who knows what he's doing and delivers great bodywork, book an appointment. .

July 21, 2017 in Portland, OR (in-studio)

I contacted Corey and I found him to be very accommodating in working with my schedule. He is very friendly and positive in his massage approach with just the right amount of pressure. He checks in frequently to make sure the pressure is just right. Very professional masseur and approachable. I would recommend you give him a try.

July 02, 2017 in Portland, OR (in-studio)

Corey is a sweet guy, I enjoyed chatting with him afterward, which was helpful because my legs were a bit like jelly after the massage! He has a very comfortable heated table and uses heating pads to keep you warm (because the room is on the cold side) as well as to relax the muscles. He has quite the range of touch, from deep to very light and pleasurable. I told him about a few problem areas, and he was really good at working them out.

June 28, 2017 in Portland, OR (in-studio)

Really wonderful experience all around. Highly recommend Corey!

Corey is incredibly easy to talk to. The space is really exceptional, comfortable, and clean. The massage itself was incredibly relaxing. Highly recommend him!

Sept. 15, 2016 in Portland, OR (in-studio)

What everyone says about Corey and his massage is totally accurate! From the moment you enter his studio to the minute you leave, his entire focus is on you. He uses a number of techniques and styles to work through those sore muscles and knots. He knows the muscle structure well and uses that knowledge to get into those problem areas with very focused intensity with both deep intense pressure and relaxing light pressure. I’m ALWAYS sore but when I left Corey’s table I have to say I felt rejuvenated and even more so the next day. In addition to all this Corey is a great guy, easy to talk to and listens to you. Go see Corey!!

Sept. 19, 2016 in Portland, OR (in-studio)

best massage hands down! Corey makes you instantly at ease. Super nice guy, He is super easy to schedule with, I've been to others,but won't make that mistake again
