Swedish massages tend to be what most people think of when they think of massages. After a stressful day or week at work or as a way to relax, Swedish massages are aimed at helping people simply feel good. They can focus on slow gliding strokes with light to medium pressure that will increase circulation and blood flow. More than anything, they help people to relax without putting too much pressure on the muscles. The end result is a person... who is happier and more relaxed than when they came in.
I can provide you with a very relaxing Swedish massage, deep tissue, sports or therapeutic massage. I am very knowledgeable of the body, accompanied by a nice touch. I also like to include hot stones, hot towels, hot oils and lotions, aromatherapy, music and candles. I am very passionate about my work. I love what I do. I am a professional, I have great listening skills, empathy for my clients and I'm committed to my training to expand my physical skills even after schooling. You will not be disappointed. AS A THERAPIST, I PROVIDE A GAY FRIENDLY ATMOSPHERE to make everyone feel comfortable.

June 03, 2021 in Philadelphia, PA (in-studio)

Shad was absolutely amazing. I was visiting Philly from Florida and needed a massage. It was easy to book and easy to find. I got a 90 min deep tissue massage with a facial afterwards. I hadn’t received a facial before and it had been months since I had a massage. The whole experience was incredible. I will definitely be back the next time I’m in town. Thanks Shad!

Very professional massage therapist . He was able to diagnose body needs just by touch. He used more (needed) pressure than any therapist that I have visited. Definitely will be returning

Very relaxing, professional massage. Shad is really good. I will be returning soon. He knows how to identify trouble spots and massage it deeply.

Good conversation with client as well.

Very easy to book. Incredibly comfortable setting. Total professional. Massage, to heated stones, finishing with hot towels. A massage like no other! I’ll definitely be returning.
