I had a great massage with Rog yesterday. He really pampers you with hot towels and a very comfortable heated table. I asked for his “spa massage” but with deeper pressures for upper back and neck, and it was perfect. Rog is very intuitive, but I could also tell that he’s professionally trained. He’s fully present and conscientious with a work ethic, which differentiates him. Most importantly, he’s personable and we chatted for probably 20 minutes after the massage about difficult family relationships (the reason I needed a massage!) and about a shared interest in biking. Rog is my new go-to guy! Very sweet man.

Roger’s massage is outstanding. I felt a great connection with him throughout the session and he is fully present the whole time. Very professional and sweet. I agree with the other review here that said it’s a little tough to book same day, but I was finally able to book for next day and it was worth it. The setup is nice - very comfortable sheets and a heated table, and hot towels used strategically during the massage. Delightful!

I had my third massage from Roger yesterday. His style is very relaxing, thorough and skilled. His place is nice and he is welcoming and friendly. I get the spa style massage with the hot towels, and he does extra work on my feet and hands. I sent my boyfriend to him last week, and he was also pleased with the experience. I would suggest trying Roger if you like Swedish relax style bodywork.

Roger made me feel so comfortable. It was my first massage in the USA so I didn’t know how it worked. Only thing negative I can say is that it can be a bit hard to schedule a massage with him, he only sees one customer per day because of coronavirus. So text him in advance to book! It was a long time to wait, and I was ready!! LOL But the massage made it worth the wait. Thank you Roger!

I just had a really great massage from Roger. He’s very professional but also fun, personable, and creative with his techniques. He does this thing called feather touch that you’ve got to experience! The space is nice and comfortable - I have never been on a more comfortable table, with heat and a flannel sheet. I especially like the use of hot towels. Roger did his homework and his cleaning routine and covid precautions seem solid. My partner recommended Roger to me, and now I’m recommending him to you!

Rog’s massage is so relaxing, his place is very calm and warm, and he’s the nicest guy you’ll ever meet. I always leave in a state of total relaxation. A visit to Rog once a month keeps me sane.

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.

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!"
