As of 3/5/21 I have been vaccinated.. I have been in the Bodywork / massage business for over 10 years, so I'm well-rounded and trained in many modalities.

First a warm welcome. Then a bottle of water or glass of wine. I find out your need and I go to work. My intuitive hands will find the spots that need to be worked out.

Energy is the vibe when you come to my table. Your massage therapist needs... to have great energy in order to transfer that energy to you. This is what massage therapy is all about.

Whether it’s deep tissue or soft touch, I will find the spots with the most tension and knead them out. My Bodywork comes from years of experience and I transfer all of that into the body of my client. My studio is based in the city of Long Beach and I do out call to all surrounding cities.

I am proud to cater to the LGBTQ community.

I have been going to Monte for awhile now and have always had a good experience. The last appointment I made was a sudden request for a deep tissue massage and it was everything I needed. I had been having an intense muscle spasm that made it difficult to move. Monte focused all his efforts on relieving the pain and the next day I was able to move again.

I had knee surgery recently and have not been able to do my regular cross fit routine. Let’s just say I’ve put on a few pounds! Lol. I’m now done with PT and have started getting back into the gym. Considering it’s been a while since I’ve worked out since the injury last year, the soreness and tightness in my body needed some attention. I instantly thought to call Monte. I knew his experienced hands would help me feel better in no time. Well, let me tell you something … Tonight’s massage was honestly the best massage I have ever had IN MY LIFE. Talk about healing hands … wOw! I will sleep like a baby tonight and Monte has a customer and friend for life in me. Cheers!

I don’t have a lot of money, so that makes paying for an experience like this all the more special for me because it means it has to be something I really enjoy and put aside money to be able to do. I honestly think this is worth saving up and putting aside money to be able to enjoy because Monte is just so caring and such a good healer. I came in to him in great pain before going on a trip that I had been saving up for the last year to do, and now I’ll be able to enjoy my trip free of pain because of his amazing work. I’ve already booked another massage to try and help me now with some of my chronic pain. Monte is everything you would ask for and more.

Monté is a master massage therapist! He approaches his healing work with kindness and professionalism. He takes time to consult with each of his clients beforehand to ensure that he meets their needs. I would highly recommend him if you are looking for relief from the day-to-day stressors and then some. The day after my first visit with him I feel greater mobility than I have in months. His space is also clean, calm, and inviting — the perfect atmosphere. Check him out!

This was the best massage I’ve ever had. The deep tissue massage truly targeted the parts of my body that I knew were tight and allowed me to recognize parts that I wasn’t even aware of. I left feeling refreshed and restored. Huge appreciation for the care and expertise that Monte has. Will recommend this spot to everyone moving forward.

Service Received: 60 minutes therapeutic bodywork.
Therapeutic massage that especially helped my chronically pained shoulders. Three days after Mr. Monte's work, I can still feel the relief and 'space' in my neck and shoulders, as those muscles let go of a lot of tension and restriction. I highly recommend Mr. Monte as a knowledgeable, very skilled professional. His office is clean, calm and welcoming.

This was one of the best massages I have ever received. Before commenting on the skill, I have to say his professionalism was unmatched. He had a warm and welcoming environment and was great with communication. He was even flexible when I told him I would be a few minutes late. The skills are truly unmatched. I felt completely comfortable and relaxed, and he worked out areas that needed to be worked out without much guiding from me. Hands down I would book another massage

"Monté is an outstanding Massage Therapist. His bodywork is powerful, intuitive and healing. I've never had anyone balance relaxation and healing pressure so well. He knows how to release your knots and most tension filled areas. His power and strength contribute to the best stretching and restoration I've every experienced. Outstanding. If Monté were permanent in NYC he would be my once-a-week choice. Don't wait. Just make the appointment now!"

I'm so grateful that you graced Philadelphia with your table I really needed your hands. All your reviews reflect what you really put out and I'm glad I called. For all of you out there who have not had his healing I encourage you to book a massage. I can't wait for you to get back to Philadelphia. You should come live here. You would do well. I'll let you know when I get to the Los Angeles area so I can book my next session if you don't make it here first. Thanks again and I feel much better.

Great hands, great personality, great smile, and most of all his work is impeccable. Please come visit Nashville more often we need you here. The atmosphere was set up very well for a traveling massage therapist. Very clean very sanitized and he checks temperatures during this covid crisis. I felt very comfortable and safe under his hands. The pressure was awesome and got rid of all of my problem areas. Hope to see you again soon, Chris

This guy has awesome hands an awesome spirit and the energy at his studio is phenomenal. I went in for lymphatic drainage after surgery and was very satisfied with the skill level Marco. This was my second massage session with him. With the first session being a therapeutic one, I didn't know that he was trained in this modality and man was I surprised. His skills are diversified and im glad I went back. Highly recommended. Thanks Marco.

Sept. 05, 2020 in Lawrenceville, GA (in-studio)

I saw Marco's profile and I was very hesitant to even text or email because I am a very private person. I took a chance and booked any appointment. When I got there he opened the door and from that point forward I felt safe.

My massage was so good I wanted to book another 90 minutes that same day. Marco was a complete gentleman,extremely accommodating, patient, and most importantly super respectful. The pressure of his hands were like MAGIC. I am a stocky southern dude who frequents the gym and he knew every pressure point in my body.

I was so relaxed I basically fell asleep twice. Marco is the BEST Massage Therapist I have ever had in my entire life. I HIGHLY recommend his services because they were worth every penny spent. The Room was so clean, the table was neat, his hands were a BEAST, the oil was smooth and warm.

Just an overall amazing experience. I cannot wait to book again. This will be my #1 Massage Therapist. A+ is what I will leave with you today. Great meeting you Marco until we meet and book again I am forever grateful for you and your services.

This man's hands are amazing! and during a pandemic he sure Knows how to make you feel comfortable. He took my temperature when I came in and sprayed disinfectant just to make sure his studio Was free of covid-19 before my massage which made me feel very safe. His studio looks amazing. Very ZEN and chill guy. Knows exactly what to do with his clients. I would recommend him 100%. Thanks marco for a great session!

During this pandemic I had been quarantining for 2 months. after going stir-crazy working from home, I decided I needed a massage very badly. I was happy to find Marco was still working on a limited basis. This guy has tremendous skills and very intuitive with very strong hands. His Studio was extremely clean and disinfected. He used Lysol before the massage and then after as well as sanitizer. We both wore masks so I felt very safe. I booked my next session while I was there.

I am a bodywork enthusiast and I try different massage therapist all the time. When I saw a Marco was coming to Arizona I decided to give him a try and boy was it a great choice.

First of all I was greeted with a great smile which put me at ease right away. He had a very professional setup for a traveling massage therapist. He was able to find all the spots that were ailing me without me saying a word and that says a lot about his ability.

He went into some trigger point therapy which was uncomfortable at first but the benefits definitely helped the Mobility in my arm. This guy is a true professional. I would recommend him to anyone.

Nov. 02, 2019 in Long Beach, CA (in-studio)

Amazing technique, amazing hands, great massage, amazing service. Came from Austin Texas to visit looked Marco up and went to his Studio. Very professional and really seems to be into his craft. Very intuitive and went write to my troubled areas. I travel often to California so I will make sure that I make it a priority to see him when I'm there.

I am a resident of Thailand and I came to the United States to visit on vacation. While I was there I just wanted to relax and get a massage so I called Marco and went to his studio.

As a resident of Thailand I have had many Thai, and almost every other type of Massage. I have to say that out of all of the massages I have had, Marco gave me the best massage I have ever had in my life.

He uses intuition to get to know the body and it shows. He is very skilled and trained. He is very professional and his studio is very nice. It's amazing how nothing's here in Thailand can compare to the body work that this man gave me. 100% real and recommended.

Where to even start? Marco is an incredible massage therapist. Well-trained and incredibly strong. I have a chronic illness that causes a lot of muscle cramping and pain, and Marco found each area without even being told and worked them out one by one. He then finished with a full body oil massage that left me pain free and completely relaxed. No one has ever been able to render me pain free but Marco does it every time. He’s the real deal and worth every penny. I book him at least every two weeks and continue to be impressed by his skills. Book him!

Oct. 01, 2018 in Long Beach, CA (in-studio)

When I text Marco he replied within the first 5 minutes which is unusual for me when I get my massage from masseurfinder. He seems to go out of his way to accommodate his clients which is refreshing. The massage was awesome. He has very skillful hands that seem to know where to go. I will definitely be booking again in fact I think I'm going to make him my regular massuer.

Aug. 17, 2018 in Long Beach, CA (in-studio)

I want to see Marco and he was the consummate professional. I was having some back issues and when I called him for my massage he was able to take me within an hour of my call. When I arrived he had a very clean environment with all the amenities of a spa. Excellent bodywork!

Feb. 14, 2018 in Los Angeles, CA (mobile)

Marco is a total professional. I have some issues with my neck and lower back that he was able to address and he definitely relieved my pain. The massage was incredible. He took his time, beginning with stretching, then moving into a massage that included very deep tissue pressure as well as very light touch. I felt like butter in his hands. And he ended as promised, with a wonderful hug. I will definitely be calling Marco again and again!

Feb. 11, 2018 in Los Angeles, CA (mobile)

Marco is amazing. His hands are firm and strong and I was in pure bliss the moment he started. Can't wait to get another massage from him. One of the best I've had in a long time!

Nov. 05, 2017 in Fountain Valley, CA (mobile)

Such a great massage! Strong and intuitive hands that know exactly what they’re doing. Very pleasant and caring too! I highly recommend him!

When I received a massage from this gentleman I was overjoyed. He gave me 5 star treatment from beginning to end. This giant of masseurs treated me with so much respect. I can't wait for my next appointment!!!

Oct. 30, 2017 in Long Beach, CA (in-studio)

Amazing massage! A variety of light touch with deep tissue massage. He was very intuitive and could have easily gone on another hour! I am
