Chris went out of his way to accommodate my complicated schedule and short notice. His place is super clean. Music, candles, outstanding technique, sweet voice and smile fulfilled my thirst for full relaxation massage and completely balanced the state of my mind and body. He knew what I need better than myself. I enjoyed his every touch, every stroke and every move. I am definitely coming back for more bodywork. Try him. You will not regret.

A massage with Chris is not a 5 star as noted but a 10 star … it is flawless. He has a magic about him that I have NEVER in all the massages I have ever received experienced. He is so gently caring kind and warm, yet when he gives the massage he is strong and you feel everything he does. I can't even begin to tell you how wonderful and great the adventure was. I will return to Chris for another magical, warm and incredible massage as soon as I can and then I will return for another 10 star after that.
