Overview

Your massage will be tailored to your preferences. Please request an appointment by text only from an unblocked phone number.

I specialize in a style that incorporates nurturing Swedish, deep tissue, and relaxation techniques. I'm a fully certified therapist with substantial and ongoing training.

My gay-friendly practice is located in my home, which is warm, comfortable, and close to transit. My table is heated, and I use flannel linens. My product is high-quality Biotone massage cream. All massages incorporate... hot towels.

I give 10% off the price for first-time clients and for massages booked more than 24 hours in advance.

I also offer couples massage training. I will teach you and your partner the basics of gentle massage, in a safe and non-judgmental gay-friendly environment. Couples training sessions typically last three hours but can be tailored to your preferences. Contact me for details.

Testimonials

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

Jan. 02, 2019 in San Francisco, CA (in-studio)

Roger’s massage is excellent and he is a sweetheart, too. He helps me with hip, knee and foot pain and really knows what he’s doing. He gives me a receipt for insurance billing. I need some special accommodations for massages because of my limited mobility and its no problem, Roger is patient and helpful. He is always positive and in a good mood, and he is a very nice person.

Rog has great hands and great attention to problem areas. He really listens to what you want in a massage, which not all masseurs do. It seems very customized based on our preliminary discussions. I'm a regular with Rog because he can find a great balance between blissful relaxation and deeper therapeutic work. I have sent a couple of friends to him already and would recommend him to anyone.

Rog's massage was a great experience, I'll definitely be back. He was thorough, friendly, and "present," and his set-up is very nice and comfortable. I especially appreciated his warm space, heated table, and flannel sheets on a cold day! The music and ambiance were perfect. As I told Rog after the massage, "You have magic hands!"
