Overview

Offering Thai massage, Shiatsu, Bhakti sessions, and range conditioning based on healing and restoring the body mind and spirit. I work by carefully testing body alignment and muscles with care as I work to balance these relationships using a variety of modalities. Last minute appointments sometimes available; however, it's best to text around 8am to check availability, or text a day prior. I use a pro travel table with headrest, or mat. Group sessions available for those interested in... that. Ask for info. My goal is to help you feel great by improving patterns in the body through the activation of specific pathways and assisted stretching to facilitate relaxation and balance, bringing you into a state of bliss. Range conditioning focuses on improving strength, flexibility, and mobility. We will work to optimize body alignment and relaxation, to make movement more fluid to feel energized and deeply relaxed. I work on new and returning clients no matter the age, body type, LGBTQ, or hetero. Clean, restful space and sanitized linens. I do not wrap in several sheets and spend half the time moving sheets around like most places do. Pressure can be light to deep or both. Please text for a faster reply. Michael

Testimonials

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

Jan. 28, 2022 in Nashville, TN (in-studio)

A Real professional therapist! Michael has Great technical knowledge, skill and amazing touch. I had a specific muscle group that caused me a lot of discomfort that most professionals don’t know about. Pelvic floor, and specifically the psoas muscles. His bodywork knowledge is great, even gave tips to help me daily. A rare find and one I will definitely go back to.

I recently had a massage by Michael. It was perfect for me. He put me at ease with a calm, gentle demeanor. He was excellent at perceiving where my tensions were and adjusted his touch to get it all just right. I left feeling relaxed and comfortable and really grateful for his therapeutic touch. I will absolutely book with him again when he is back in Birmingham.

I have never had a massage quite like Michael’s. He starts off with the confidence of an experienced professional – knowing which muscles to work and how to release tension. But there is something more to Michael’s technique. Somehow he can make firm, deep pressure feel light and comfortable. I’ve never felt anyone do this before. His unusual combination of intensity and gentleness left me relaxed, with soothed muscles and a much better mood. This was my first massage with Michael, but it certainly won’t be the last. Do yourself a favor – book a session with him.

This is amazing massage — among the best I’ve ever had. I could immediately tell I was in the hands of a trained masseur who is also gifted and dedicated. I left feeling so great — I plan to be a regular. Michael is kind and welcoming. I highly recommend.

I have had dozens of massages over the years and Michael’s is by far the best I have ever had. He was easy to book with and prompt with responses. He set a comfortable environment, was very welcoming and his space was clean and inviting. Michael’s techniques and flow of his motions are so relaxing and he has an innate ability to locate trouble areas and provide relief to them. I got the
full body massage and it was simply amazing. I have never left a massage feeling so relaxed, energized, and reinvigorated. I will definitely be booking with Michael again very soon — he’s the best!

"Michael gives simply the best full body massage. Something I dream of. He can read you like a book and apply his skills accordingly. He has been instrumental and skilled. Nice spotless studio. Very trustworthy. Relieving my lower back and sciatic pain due to his intuitive skills and complimentary knowledge he's gained from physical therapy training and working with chiropractors. Highly recommended."
