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. I’m equally comfortable with therapeutic and relaxing massage.

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 and diffused (ambient) aromatherapy.

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

Testimonials

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

Sept. 19, 2019 in San Francisco, CA (in-studio)

This was a totally relaxing experience. More than most, Rog puts a lot of thought and effort into the whole experience: nice sheets, beautiful music, aromatherapy, hot towels, perfect temperature. The bodywork is excellent, and it’s like you’re at a spa.

I would highly recommend Rog for any type of massage, but he’s especially good at relaxation massage. He seems intuitive in his touch and techniques, and the whole experience is just very calming and revitalizing. He has also successfully helped me with pain management for a frozen shoulder issue in the past, but now I usually request what he calls his “spa massage.” I have been a regular client of Roger’s for almost two years.

Roger is great! He mixes together different kinds of massage from sports and Swedish and I think some Asian massage too. It’s very relaxing at his place and he makes you the center of attention during the massage. I have gone to Roger twice now and I’ll be going back.

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.

Feb. 02, 2018 in San Francisco, CA (in-studio)

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!"
