Just had my second massage with Jeff, I have to say that the guy knows his stuff! I wanted a deep tissue the first time and man is that what I got. I prefer deep tissue but most of the people I have been to say they do deep but then not so much. I should have requested firm instead, as Jeff’s deep is pretty deep. I wanted something different for the second time so requested light pressure more Swedish style and he delivered on that end as well! Pleasant as can be with a great smile and a great attitude. Clean house and work space . Nice environment to relax and let him do his thing.

I have to admit I am a massage junkie! I enjoy getting them as often as I can and try different therapists when I am traveling on business. I travel to Cleveland only once or twice a year, but make it a point to get some table time with Jeff when I am in town.
This is what I have found with almost all therapists. Words and phrases and descriptions of soft music, luxury sheets, scented candles, strong but gentle hands (which are they) melt away stress, leave you feeling like a new man, are just fluff words that mean the therapist doesn’t really know what they are doing. Oh, you’ll get a rub, but probably not in a good way. I look for trained individuals who offer a good massage at a reasonable price and I found absolutely everything I look for in a therapist with Jeff. Give him a try, you won’t be disappointed

I had an emotionally stressful experience as I was nearing the end of my first travel to see Jeff for a massage on 06/28/2022. Despite the tension, and in his inimitable manner, Jeff expressed empathy, established a calming ambience, and delivered a deep tissue therapeutic massage that was absolutely, without question, unlike any received previously. So began my discovery, finally, of the kindred spirit I have been seeking, someone to whom I can relate on several levels, with whom I can share the awe, wonder, even inception, of the human condition – physical body, mind, and spirit, including the expression of male sensitivity. I appreciate all of these, despite their apparent depreciation by much of today’s society. Indeed, I believe I experienced a new-to-me “touch” of nirvana that too few of us ever achieve. Jeff caused me to ponder that perhaps my age and life experiences have given rise to a bit of wisdom! In any event, I thank Jeff for embodying all of this in the delivery of his brand of therapeutic massage. He is certainly a rare find. I will value and definitely seek continued opportunities to share the goodness of life that he facilitates! This was time extremely well spent! Bless you, Jeff! . . . D.J.

I’m glad I have the option to write a review for such a wonderful person and therapist. My wife and I had been looking for awhile to find a therapist who was comfortable having both of us in the room at the same time. Not only was Jeff Ok with this, he is the one who recommended it first! We arrived at his beautiful home and Jeff welcomed us with open arms and a huge smile and peaceful energy that was felt as soon as we walked in. I went first while my wife relaxed and watched without being intrusive. His pressure and strokes were amazing and I was a little worried the pressure would be too much for her, but when it was time for my wife he instantly switched things up and went from a deep tissue therapeutic massage for me to a lighter more relaxing massage for her. In the end, it was one of the most satisfying experiences we could have hoped for. Jeff is a warm , funny, and talented massage therapist and we will be back again many times.

After my long time massage guy moved, I was at a loss on how and where to find someone else. Jeff was recommended to me from a friend and I am so happy he did! It took a couple of tries to schedule and I understand why, Jeff knows his stuff and I’ve been to him a few times now. Great room set up, clean and follows covid protocols. Every time I have seen him, something different is added or a stretch is different . I can tell he cares about what the customer wants and my body has never felt better due to some body soreness issues that are ongoing. I feel better everytime I walk out of his place. Thanks for going above and beyond!

I’ve made Jeff’s massage part of my wellness routine and have been seeing him on a continual basis for some time. He is always incorporating something new and his hot stone technique is original and a great addition to any massage I have received in the past. He is a no nonsense guy with a quick smile and laugh and I always feel welcome, safe and am able to truly relax. His home and work space is immaculate which matter to me His training is evident throughout the massage which I am grateful for. A true therapist and a great guy. Thanks for everything you do for me Jeff!

have been going to Jeff for about a year now and continue to enjoy and appreciate his massage style and his knowledge. Always friendly and his space is immaculate.
I had a trip planned and I wrenched my back and had considered canceling the trip due to the sever pain I was experiencing.
I thought I would see what Jeff could due to help and with two sessions in a week, I was 90 percent pain free and was able to move much better and go on my trip and enjoy hiking and other activities. A true testament to his abilities!

What a pleasure to meet such a genuine healer. Sever shoulder pain and overall soreness led me to search out a therapist and I'm glad I found Jeff. Deep tissue massage, stretching and pressure point allowed me to carry on with my vacation! Better in person than in pictures and has a genuine warmth and positive energy to his bodywork. Cleveland is lucky to have you!

I could go into all of the details of my massage that I booked with Jeff but thought I would throw some words out there that are succinct and to the point.

Aug. 11, 2020 in Cleveland, OH (in-studio)

After years of wanting a massage and not committing, I finally decided to stop wanting and finally doing! Nervous and hesitant and not knowing what to expect, I am so glad I decided on Jeff as my therapist! Calm, friendly, and letting me be nervous was exactly what I needed. Communicated without talking throughout the massage and just letting me be me. Truly what I needed without knowing what I needed! Many Thanks

I seldom "gush" about the work of massage therapists, but Jeff is an exceptional therapist among the truly gifted. I'm picky about who I let work on me and I'm even less apt to go on and on about a therapist - I had my own massage therapy practice serving hundreds of clients over a period of 25 years in five different states, so I know what I'm talking about. I felt immediately better just walking into Jeff's space and meeting him. He flawlessly moves between modalities (in my case hot stones and deep tissue). This is not an easy thing to do, but Jeff does as easily as breathing. A hot towel on my face with essence oils near the end of the session was an additional surprise and just what I needed to set me up to win for a big day the next morning. If I didn't live five hours away Jeff would have a new, regular client. As it stands, I'm already looking forward to my next trip to Cleveland!

Let me start by saying as a bigger guy I have always felt self conscious about getting a massage and when I have , unfortunately I have been made to feel less than and not at all comfortable. That all changed after reading Jeff's reviews and deciding to give him a try!
What I had always hoped for in a massage came true! He put me at ease immediately and never once made an issue of, or a comment on my size! Instead, what I received was a relaxing self healing massage with someone who is truly a professional and knows what they are doing. His space is clean, clean, clean, which is a big deal to me. His demeanor and easy going personality was much appreciated and all I can say is I will be back !
Thank You Jeff!

I recently had the pleasure of getting a massage while in Puerto Vallarta, Clean space, friendly, knowledgeable, excellent technique, Can't recommend this therapist enough!. Quality was top shelf. I wished he lived here full time!

I've had the pleasure of being on the receiving end of several of massages from Jeff. Friendly, Clean, knowledgeable, but above all else he knows what he is doing. He used the same components each time, but every massage was just a little different and tailored to what I requested. Whether deep tissue or swedish, the results are always the same! A fantastic therapist.

Well located, Clean space, Trained and skilled, Comfortability and knowledge with the muscle groups . These are all attributes I look for when I am looking to book a massage. I found them all and more with Jeff! He communicated with me to make sure the pressure was what I wanted. He went from Strong to soft as I asked him to do for a couple of problem areas I have and he did it with fluidity and ease. His use of hot stones was something I had never experienced before and never knew I would enjoy until I had it done to me! All this with a genuine warmth and a smile that is contagious. The next time I am back in Cleveland I found my go to therapist!

After trying for a few times I was able to book with Jeff and now I know why it took a few times!! STRONG HANDS!! actually strong everything, What a massage, I had some severe back and leg soreness and Jeff was able to make me feel a lot better after one visit and after 2 massages I was a new man!! If I could use one word to describe this massage, it would be intuitive. Being able to read a body and adjust and use different strokes is something I have been searching for and I think I found it. Safe parking, Clean and modern home and work space. Pleased with the whole experience.

Jeff is amazing! The place was easy to get to, and parking was easy. I could tell right away that he was going to be great by his warm greeting as he brought me to his massage room. The table was comfortable and he gave me time to undress and lay down before he re-entered the room. He started working on my upper back, which needed help, and his pressure was firm. He was so intuitive and found all my knots. The stretching was great and time seemed to disappear. I have been to a lot of therapists over the years and cannot believe how great this was. I got a 90 minute. His price was so reasonable that I tipped him extra. And did I mention the hot towel? I will definitely be a regular, cannot wait to see him again.
