Earlier this week, I had a massage from Stephen that went beyond my expectations. Stephen's skilled hands and intuition adeptly relieved muscle tension and knots, alleviating my muscle pain and fatigue. His studio was clean and inviting, with soothing music and great attention to detail, creating a rejuvenating experience. He listened attentively to my concerns and customized the session to specifically address them. Good listening skills are so important these days, but rare to find! I wholeheartedly recommend Stephen as a talented and therapeutic masseur.

I rarely leave reviews, but felt compelled to after receiving my first massage from Stephen. I am a sports chiropractor and have had many massages over the years. Stephen is professional, knowledgeable, and makes you feel welcome from the minute you arrive. The massage room is clean and comforting with great lighting and music. The overall atmosphere is relaxing and he really takes the time to listen to your concerns and addresses them all thoroughly. I went in for some shoulder pain and came out feeling like a new man. I look forward to future massages from him!

Exceptional experience with Stephen! Quality bodywork with attention to muscle impairment and ultimate relaxation. Stephen’s studio is clean, comfortable, and efficient. I am looking forward to my next session.

I was in pain from a lower back/SI joint injury and was looking for a deep tissue massage. His reviews were impressive so I took a chance and I couldn’t be happier! His hands are magic and did wonders for my pain. Not only is he very intuitive, his massage studio is very relaxing and inviting. I was very comfortable. Needless to say I was very happy with the overall experience and I feel so much better. I will definitely see him again. I highly recommend him for a GREAT massage!

Last year with my regular quick visits to Palm Springs, and a surprising cold weather snap, I decided to treat myself to a deep tissue massage encouraged by the bad pool weather. Stephen changed my mind on why I take my getaways in Palm Springs, pool days are now the second reason. My first is my individual spa day with Stephen. Upon my arrivals, he’s my first call, within hours my appointment is scheduled. The private and professional setting is the calm and reason for my getaways. Realigning my body, mind and spirit is a must for Steven. My spiritual desert escape and knowing his treatment for my problem areas, muscular ailments and full body well being, make me feel 100% on track. If you haven’t been treated by Steven, it’s a must. Thank you always,

Stephen is the total package, intuitive and communicative. Even though he is an expert at knowing what to work and how much pressure is needed, he still asks the right questions to make sure you're comfortable. Responds quickly to appointment requests, and was professional and charming all at once. I left feeling like I had been on a great brief vacation, and completely relaxed. He will be my go-to when I'm in town and in need of a top-notch massage.

Such a great massage!. I've been to Stephen multiple times, and can highly recommend him. Communication is prompt. He's welcoming and easily puts his clients at ease. The massage space is a dedicated room with perfect lighting and his music choices truly enhance the experience. Stephen provides an experience that is therapeutic, relaxing, and unforgettable.

Being a physician, I am seeking a masseur who is knowledgeable about the body – especially musculature and functionality. I need a massage that is both therapeutic while also very relaxing and stress reducing. Stephen checks all of these boxes. He is very welcoming into his pristine space and makes you feel comfortable from the moment he greets you. He places his body, energy and commitment into insuring you have an awesome experience. You will be very thankful you found and experienced Stephen’s Bodyworks when you are in Palm Springs.

I was in Palm Springs for a week of relaxation and and booked a massage with Stephen based on his reviews below. And I’m happy to say he lived up to all the great things other people say about him. I tend to hold a lot of stress in my back and he was amazing at getting the knots out and releasing my tension there. He was very attentive to giving me the massage that best suited my needs, fine tuning the pressure and targeting parts of my body that required the most attention. He was also very personable - easy to talk to and calming at the same time. I recommend him highly.

I train regularly at the gym and it’s difficult to find a massage therapist who understands muscle pain and fatigue. Stephen took the time to review my needs and problem areas before starting. Intuitively he knew just the right amount of pressure and areas to relieve. I would highly recommend Stephen if you’re looking for a regular masseur or simply looking to treat yourself to a great massage. You’ll be glad you did.

Stephen is a skilled masseur with an innate ability to read your muscles. He’s caring and takes time to talk to you to understand your needs. I get a massage about once a month but this was my first time with Stephen. Immediately I could tell I was in good, knowledgeable, talented hands. I will call on him again and would recommend him to everyone!

Stephen gave me a great deep tissue massage today. His comfortable studio was the perfect spot to relax, and his strong hands worked through knots and kinks that were bothering me. After hiking and playing tennis this week, my sore muscles were rejuvenated. He checks in with you during the massage to make sure the pressure is right and everything is ok. Plus he's an all around nice guy.

Was a little nervous at first but Stephen made me feel very comfortable and was very easy to talk to. He was able to work me in to his massage schedule and focused on my areas of pain. I feel so much better!! I look forward to seeing him again!

Was an incredible experience. Walked in tense and full of knots and walked out relaxed and flexible. Definitely one of the best massages!

Took me in real quick for the first time, I needed to relax and the massage was excellent. Stephen sure knew how to make me feel right. I'll most certainly be back.

Stephen is an excellent massage therapist, he asked many questions to make sure I had a good experience. I have been using massage therapists for many years and he is by far the best I've ever been to. He is very quick to respond and I highly recommend.
