I saw Alex for a massage today. Without a doubt he has to be the best masseur on masseur finder. The massage started out with him asking me what kind of massage I was seeking. I tend not to like to deep of a massage. Alex followed my wishes and thoughts perfectly. He is professional, easy on the eyes, and a pleasure to chat with a bit while I was on the table. His hands are strong and his touch is spot on and very relaxing indeed.

My schedule isn’t the best for booking a massage much before the actual date I would like one. Alex was incredibly accommodating and patient with me before our schedules finally aligned. I am glad I stuck with wanting to see only him from the other masseurs that advertise here. Go see him. He is the real thing indeed.

I was impressed by Alex from my first inquiry. He did his best to accommodate my schedule and was very responsive. Once we set up the appointment, he sent me all the pertinent details to make me feel at ease. I was pleased to know parking was free.

Alex made sure to ask my preferences on pressure, areas to focus on and avoid if desired, and allowing me to feel at ease going into the session.

His use of slow, smooth strokes combined with his perfect pressure allowed me to both feel completely relaxed, but knowing my tight body was getting a great massage.

I really loved the work on my entire back, especially the upper back and neck, hamstrings, glutes, feet, and hands.

Definitely recommend the 90 min session.

It’s worth every penny!

Alex’s massages have been very relaxing and comforting. His strong hands offer the perfect amount of pressure to work through any muscle tightness, while also being soothing enough to create a relaxing massage. I’ve seen Alex twice and will definitely be going back for more massages. He’s also very friendly, easy to talk to, and very flexible when it comes to scheduling

I’m not much of an internet reviewer, but in this case it’s basically a public service announcement. I have had many massages over the years, and Alex was certainly one of the most excellent and effective therapists I’ve seen. I’ve been dealing with some low back pain, and he made great use of listening skills, intuition, and strength to work on the problem area. Even so, the massage felt balanced and soothing for my entire body, and the firm pressure I asked for was perfect. The environment is very professional and Alex couldn’t be more polite, genuine, friendly, knowledgeable, and unassuming - from booking the appointment to finishing the service. I look forward to seeing him for another (longer) session.

Alex's massage was very professional. He made sure to pinpoint the knots in my shoulders and hip that had been bothering me all month. The studio was very clean and the atmosphere was very relaxing. I almost fell asleep a couple times. I'm definitely going back. Can't wait!

Alex is very warm friendly and congenial made me feel comfortable the moment I walked in. The atmosphere was soft and warm. He listens to his client. His massage skills ranged from soft to firm and very soothing to my sore muscles. Non- rushed and couldn't recommend him highly enough. I will need to make another appointment soon!

I received my first of hopefully many massages by Alex on November 3rd. Alex was responsive from my initial inquiry up until the appointment, including following up after the appointment. He was consistently professional while also being friendly and personable. Alex shows care for his clients and he demonstrates that through his communication both before/after and during the session. Alex is a highly skilled massage therapist, with strong yet nuanced and gentle hands. He made sure to check in with me and asked questions to ensure I was comfortable and enjoying the experience. Alex incorporated additional elements such as breathing exercises and stretching which elevated the massage.

I’m ecstatic to have found Alex and cannot wait until I get to see him again.

I've just had my first of hopefully many massages with Alex. This felt like more than a one-off mechanical session, it felt like Alex was working with me to achieve a level of relaxation, openness, and relief that we don't often find in day to day life. Alex greeted me and showed me around his facility. The massage room is a large, clean private room with dim light and music to tune out the rest of the world.

Alex offered a consultation to understand what I wanted from the massage and it was clear that his goal was to listen and satisfy my particular needs. Alex is passionate and excited about the work so I knew I was in good (and strong) hands. During the massage, Alex checked in to ask how I was feeling, which I appreciated. His technique feels like he is connecting with me and guiding my muscles to relieve the tightness. I felt completely open and relaxed the entire time. After the massage, Alex checked in again to see how I was feeling. At that time, I was still in a state of relaxed bliss so it was hard to articulate just how great I felt.

Check him out, I highly recommend!
