Hello everyone.. I provide a friendly environment for receiving a great massage at a great value ..and yes I do smile..sorry about the poor quality profile pic. I have been a licensed massage therapist for over 10 years and have practiced a number of modalities. But my primary focus is a combination of relaxation and deep tissue work. It is important to me that each client receives an exceptional massage. The session includes a comfortable and heated table with... soft linens and relaxing music. I have a flexible schedule..so making an appointment is easy. Conveniently located near I 5 and La Jolla Village Dr...Good bodywork should be part of a comprehensive healthy lifestyle. And you don’t need to spend $150 or more to get a memorable massage..

I've been going to Terry for a number of years now for massages. He is one of the most confident massage therapist I've seen in many years. I feel he really loves what he does and it shows in the massage. Its like I don't want the massage to end..It's so relaxing. His massage room is great..candles and music make it perfect. His rates are great. I highly recommend Terry.

I was in San Diego and wanted to treat myself to a massage. I reached out to him and he responded very promptly. When I arrived he warmly greeted me with a smile and made me feel welcomed. Once Terry started to put his strong hands on my shoulders I knew it was going to be a good massage. He was very intuitive and knew where I was sore. He focused on my legs other knotted areas and it felt incredible . The longer it continued, it just got better. By the end I was speechless with how attentive he was and how amazing I felt. I told him it was the best massage I've ever had. Terry was incredible ! You need to experience his awesome massage.

I have been seeing Terry for over two years now and from the moment you step into his beautifully decorated..impeccably clean studio ,the beautiful candles and music ,to his greeting with a broad and genuine smile ,you know that you’re in a safe and caring environment. He is extremely talented and skilled with his hands ..mixing precise technique with compassion in his massage. Prior to seeing Terry, I sought out other masseurs , but none have matched Terrys caliber, strength and compassion.. I have never been to anyone since .I highly recommend Terry and truly believe that he is the best San Diego has to offer

I have worked with Terry for four years and have seen him monthly. I had gone through several massage therapists before finding him . He is simply put the best therapist I have ever worked with. On my first visit he sat down with me and got to know me to find out what my specific needs were. He is friendly and easy to work with. His methodology is to work gradually with the problem areas and when the muscles are relaxed then to go deeper to work the soreness out. And it works . He never slacks off. Finally his place is fastidiously clean and pricing is very competitive. I highly recommend him.

I wanted to book a massage with Terry since i was flying in from the East Coast and picked him because he was close to my hotel. I didn't know what time I was going to be arriving exactly and Terry was most accommodating and flexible. His manner was very welcoming and incredibly professional. He gave me the right amount of pressure, while checking in with me to see if I was okay. The best part was that he was willing to do a two hour session, which I really needed. I enjoyed the massage so much that I tried to get out of the workshop I was attending so I could make another appointment. He is really the best that San Diego has to offer.

I just had my first massage from Terry, and he far exceeded my expectations. Based on other reviews, I knew he would be good, but my experience with him was beyond great . Terry is passionate and gifted in massage. His pressure was just right - a great balance between therapeutic and deep tissue. Its evident that Terry has had good training and has lots of experience. On top of that he adds passion and caring . His space is easy to find and very comfortable . I felt welcomed and appreciated. I can't recommend him highly enough. Give him a try. Like me, you will be glad you did !

Terry is incredible at what he does! It is very apparent that he has many years of experience within the first five minutes of the massage. The amount of pressure he used on me was perfect. He did an amazing job targeting my tight/ sore areas giving me great relief. I walked in feeling achy and left feeling renewed and rejuvenated! You will not be disappointed with Terry .

Terry gives a wonderful, relaxing massage tailored to your needs. After years of going from one therapist to another I found Terry and have been a client for almost two years. The setting is perfect, clean room, professional table and music set to your mood. Terry is a nice guy who likes his work and gives his best. You can't go wrong with a massage from Terry !

A massage from Terry is a great experience, every step from booking to table is hassle free and professional. He is very accommodating with schedule times and customization of how you want your massage delivered, using the right amount of pressure. With Terry, you have a great value.
