Are you getting your money's worth? A masseur should listen to his clients. Paying more doesn't get you a better massage. Professional massage at its best.

Massage is one of the best ways of controlling stress in your life. I've been doing massage for 26 years since beginning in Austin, Texas. Massage helps you relax, encourages blood... flow and energy balancing, and can help relieve aches and pains of strained muscles. Whether you are an athlete or a weekend warrior, my massage will be the highlight of your week. I work on all body types. Straight, Bi, Gay...none of that matters on my table. I came to massage because of my own pain. I stay in it to relieve your pain and help you face the challenges of life.

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

It's hard to find a good masseuse. Your massage was one of the best I've had. Just wish I had time to get back over to see you before you leave. Thank you.

I just got back from a marvelous massage with Ray. He's a very sweet and gentle guy, great to talk to. Most importantly, his expertise and as a masseur is very apparent. He's knows when to be firm, when to be gentle, and is respectful of boundaries. I truly felt relaxed, and most importantly, cared for, under his hands. Folks in Richmond are lucky, since he's local to them, so what you waiting for? Text Ray today! In the meantime, I'll be looking forward to his next tour!

That was absolutely the best massage I've ever had in my life. I have got to get back before I leave town. You had me so relaxed, I think a time or two I fell asleep. Thank you.

May 14, 2022 in Richmond, VA (in-studio)

Just checking in as I realized I never emailed you after my massage. LOVED it - you're terrific! I really enjoyed meeting you and look forward to another visit some time soon.

May 25, 2022 in Virginia Beach, VA (in-studio)

Thank you for the massage. I have felt amazing all day. Please reach out when you're back in town. You can put me down as a regular!

Oct. 03, 2021 in Richmond, VA (in-studio)

Thanks a lot for an awesome massage. One of the best I have got.

Oct. 07, 2019 in Nashville, TN (in-studio)

Thank you. It honestly was my best massage ever.

I’ve had plenty of good massages and usually came away feeling they were beneficial. Then you come across something different that raises the bar. That’s Ray. A one-hour booking turned into two which became at times almost spiritual...Ray seized immediately on locked up areas in my back and with patience, persistence and sweat equity, set those muscles free of pain and tightness. Ray is intuitive and a good listener. A friend recommended Ray. Let me be a friend who is happy to recommend Ray as well.

Ray- offers an intuitive, skillful and thorough massage! He is adept at finding those trouble areas- and will work out those knots! And while he is working over your muscles- he can stimulate your mind! Great conversationalist! Make the effort to go see him!!!

March 23, 2018 in Nashville, TN (in-studio)

That was a lovely massage. I wish you weren't so far off my usual grid.

I shall certainly try to get back out that way.
