I use a wide variety of modalities and approaches to create individualized and curated sessions to meet your needs: personalized, intuitive, subtle yet deep professional massage therapy and bodywork.

From deep relaxation, to recuperation, to stress relief; I'm here to listen to you and your body.

I also offer private yoga, assisted stretching, meditation, salt-scrubbing, and deep soaking: fantastic setting located in a quiet private neighborhood, less than 5 minutes from downtown Austin.

I'm fully vaccinated and boosted... and ready to work with those who are also vaccinated and through their waiting period.

I welcome all Men, Women, and members of the LGBT community!

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

March 16, 2020 in Austin, TX (in-studio)

I have had several sessions with Chris, and all have been excellent. He is conveniently located in Travis Heights, and has a dedicated massage room in his house. The atmosphere is calm and relaxing, with low lighting and candles.

Chris is always respectful and attentive, and highly attuned to his clients' needs. I always tell him to follow his intuition, and as a result each massage has been unique. He combines long, flowing strokes with assisted stretches and other bodywork modalities, leaving me completely relaxed.

The warm, soaking bath and salt scrub are a nice treat. Highly recommended!

I saw Chris for a very stressed back and he did wonders! Nothing was rushed. He took his time focusing on the tension in very specific places in my back.

I've been getting massages for 20 years, and this truly was one of the best I have ever had. I will be going back to Chris monthly.
