Now booking in Oceanside and San Diego! Admit it, you're overdue for some self-care! Cruise over to the massage garage and let me tune you up! With over a decade of hands-on bodywork in the gay community, I can assure you I am one of the best in the neighborhood. My education as a therapist goes beyond massage school and "friends tell me I'm good at massage." My sessions benefit from my education in human physiology and experience... as an athletic trainer and firefighter paramedic. Pushing the limits of the male physique has taught me how to best aid in its recovery. I am most sought after for my deep tissue work; firm, focused, and delicious-discomfort. My Swedish techniques, however, are sure to leave you feeling relaxed and restored as you melt into my table. Your private massage will be tailored to your unique needs and desires; aromatherapy, mechanical percussion, electrical therapy, body scrubs, and cupping treatments are all available to enhance your session. -Send me a message, you deserve it.

*I am very fortunate to have so many wonderful clients, unfortunately, being booked back-to-back doesn't allow me to answer most calls. To set up your appointment please text me your preferred day, time, & appointment length or click "book now." Thanks!

Scheduling was tricky but honestly, that was my fault for trying to book an appointment last minute with sporadic availability. Fortunately Arthur was able to squeeze me in for a relaxing massage. He asked about my injuries and ailments and went right to work. The massage was firm but not too deep -without ever having to say a word. When I tell you this man knows what he is doing I mean HE KNOWS WHAT HE IS DOING! I can't believe how incredibly different (better!) I felt afterwarsd. Ugh, I can't wait for my next trip to SD. Thank you sir!

Thank you for the wonderful massage Arthur! I used to go to Happy Head and Massage Envy for my massages but I always felt like I was just another appointment. Each time the masseur was different, so, the massages were inconsistent. I felt rushed and uncomfortable. I appreciate the way you took your time during our appointment. No rush from you really made it feel like a high-end experience. The foot, hand and face scrub put me on cloud nine! You have such strong hands. -I never felt like I was being overpowered or had to direct you though. I can't wait to come back! Thanks again!

Wow, my massage with Arthur was amazing. He truly practices what he preaches and is a true professional that knows his craft. I tweaked my back and thought it would go away, after a couple weeks and a ton of stress I was miserable. I read his bio and hoped for the best. Scheduling was seamless and he was able to get me in at my last minute request. The deep tissue I received was so good! He didn’t just push hard he seemed melt into my muscles. Needless to say I will be coming back more often. Oh, and my back, never felt better. My only gripe is that I didn’t find him sooner.

I have several massages from Arthur and he is wonderful! I have had countless massages over the years and Arthur is by far the one of the best out there. He consistently assesses my needs prior to the session, communicates the plan for treatment, while welcoming my input. I first went to Arthur with back pain after trying a new machine at the gym. Arthur IS a personal trainer, he knew what I had done and made recommendations on how to avoid this injury again. He has a distinct style and consistently gives an excellent and professional massage that includes his own flair. Arthur encourages input about needing more or less pressure, but every session has been perfect without my advising. He does the massage on a heated table with aromatherapy. The studio is very comfortable and conveniently located. I am very happy to have met such a talented therapist and look forward to many more massages.
