I went back to see Rio after not having a massage for way too long during covid, and man I really felt how much I missed his expertise!! I felt “normal” again, like I was “in my body”, like home coming. He took care of ailments built during lockdown that I was not even aware of. Much respect to him and his bodywork skills.

I've been going to Rio for over 10 years now and I will not go to anyone else, he is a master to me. Getting bodywork done from him is like becoming one with the sublime forces - his techniques communicate to me non-verbally and I become in-tuned and enlightened about how the body works, leading me to a deeper understanding of the mind-body-spirit dynamics. His massages are a profound experience.

Truly skilled bodywork! I feel very relaxed and my muscles feel recharged. Best massage I've ever had, honestly.

For months I’ve been waking up with a very numbed right arm and due to your bodywork & the time you spent massaging my arms the numbness has gone away at least 90%! Thank you, can’t wait for another massage!
