Overview

After graduating from UC Berkeley with a degree in health science and a minor in kinesiology, I decided to further my education by attending and graduating from an upstanding College of Massage Therapy in San Francisco with 900 hours of training in various Eastern modalities: Shiatsu, Thai, Traditional Chinese, Acupressure and Reflexology. Western modalities: Swedish, Deep tissue and Sports Therapy. And Rehabilitative modalities: Proprioceptive Neuromuscular Facilitation, Myofascial Release And Trigger... Point. Which is a set of tool that I acquired from an additional 400 hours of training in Advanced Neuromuscular Therapy. And I didn’t stop there. I felt like there was so much more to learn and techniques needed to be sharpened, so I set out to travel to learn traditional techniques that was past down to families for generations in places like Hawaii, Japan, Thailand and India. And I am so fortunate to have being taught little tricks that makes all the difference in a massage session by such amazing healers and masters in this craft. I can say with confidence that I am more than prepared to provide you with the highest standards and techniques that very few in my field can offer. As a gay man, it is my goal to provide a safe, free of judgment and very inclusive environment for people of the LGBTQ community to relax and heal. I’d be thrilled to help you, may it be just a moment of pampering or a much needed tune up to make sure your body can handle what life throws at you. This is my art.

Testimonials

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

What a wonderful massage! Alex is really a gifted masseur. He is clearly dedicated to his craft and it really shows in the quality of the massage he delivers. It was a wonderful blend of relaxing and deeper tissue. He also incorporated some stretching as well which was a really wonderful bonus. Alex is great about checking in throughout the massage too (although most of the time I was completely lost in relaxation!). He's not a clock watcher but the time really did seem like it flew by. It's been a post-massage relaxation high the rest of the day! Alex is a wonderful gentle, kind (and cute) man and I really can't recommend him highly enough!!

I used to hop from one massage therapist to another. No longer. I have found the best, why keep looking? If you have not had a massage by Alex, you simply must!

So I immediately felt at ease when I met Alex for the first time we met for my massage. He took time to get to know me and also what I needed him to work on. He was very in tune with my muscles and how they reacted to the pressure he applied during my session, showing me he knows how to do bodywork. This was my second session with him and will not be my last.

When booking a session with Alex, You should know that you are in the hands of a well rounded massage professional. At the moment we shook hands I could feel his grounded and focused energy. His quality of touch was like nothing I have ever experienced before. It was firm, like a serious man handling, and yet, comforting. His intuitive touch lead him to areas I didn't even know I had tension. By the end of it, I needed a minute to even remember where I was.
Alex's work is pure magic. I am definitely seeing him again, and again, and again. and you should, too.

Alex was excellent. He was timely and set up very independently. Very kind and easy to talk to from our first meeting. His massage was inviting and warm. He used a great amount of pressure and checked in with me along the way. I will see him again. He brings everything with him including a comfortable table. Great work.

This guys is the real deal. The moment he touches you, you know you're in for an great experience. The quality of his bodywork massage is so nurturing and so healing, you would wish for it not to end. I'm a regular now. Thanks Alex

From the moment I met Alex at the door, I was set at ease with his gentle presence. He had everything needed to do a completely professional massage in my home. The 90 minutes flew by. I've had many massages, but Ales obviously has incredible training in a wide variety of methods. He was able to read my needs and met them perfectly. I have found a regular therapist!

I appreciated the professionalism, punctuality, excellent communication, and of course the massage itself. The many hours of training definitely shines through. His technique blends strength, empathy, and skill into a nourishing and therapeutic session. If you truly want a massage that matters, this is your guy. Masculine, talented, and focused.
