Overview

Offering Thai massage, accupressure, reflexology, and range conditioning based on healing and restoring body mind and spirit. Because I am also a Yoga teacher and certified in several modalities, I am familiar with carefully testing alignment as I work to balance these relationships.

Let me know if you would like a outcall to you, and the location, or a incall. Sometimes I can only do outcalls while I travel. Please, try to book a few days in advance. Last minute... appointments may not be available. I am based near MSP airport and travel between MN and FL in Jan through April.

I use a professional table, gentle music, soft lighting, purified water, sanitized linens, nonscented lotion, and candles for a relaxing atmosphere.

My goal is to help you feel great by improving patterns in the body through the activation of specific pathways and assisted stretching, bringing you into a state of relaxed bliss.

For over 15 years, my clientele has consisted primarily of married or straight men. I honor confidentiality and welcome new and returning clients no matter the age, body type, LGBTQ, or hetero. I do not wrap in several sheets and spend half the time moving sheets around like most places do.

Testimonials

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

Feb. 29, 2024 in Bloomington, MN (in-studio)

I need to show my appreciation in my words as just paying and tipping for your bodywork services does not seem to express my sentiments adequately. While Michael is very thorough, he is a master at exploring and reading a body and gravitating to where attention is needed. He has unique ways to seek out tension and alleviate the stress that may buildup. His intuition puts you at ease as he focuses on all the areas you may not have known you needed some attention. I find that I am in a post session euphoric state for a day or two after a session and then find myself needing another session as stress and tension builds again during my work week. It’s nice to know you can have an outlet to manage and keep your tension under control with his talented skills.

I do not worry when recommending Michael that he is going to gain a new satisfied client, but I do worry that Michael will have less availability for my regular sessions as his following grows.

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."
