Overview

In my decade working in luxury spas one thing I noticed is men very rarely visit spas. Always seemed men just didn’t get bodywork much and when they did was usually as a captive in a couples massage. So many men work their bodies hard and need big, strong, skilled hands to help them relax, unwind and perform optimally. My background is in spa and sports massage and cranial and particularly enjoy helping athletes recover faster and train harder... and grow bigger. Often women are just not strong enough and have small hands and just don’t cut it. All pointy elbows and inconsistent m, weak pressure. Not with me! I’m strong like ox.

Love providing a safe space for men, gay or otherwise, to explore their bodies and enjoy a refuge of healing and relaxation. Love taking time to get to know my clients and their bodies. The best work requires feeling safe, comfort and most of all trust.

Please text me and tell me your name, a little bit about yourself and how I can help you. Happy to talk on phone too but prefer a text so I know you are a person and not some scam robocall tomfoolery.

I’m licensed and want to stay that way so take time getting to know me..

Thank you very much!!!

Testimonials

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

Oct. 11, 2021 in Portland, OR (in-studio)

I'll start by saying the years of experience working on in massage is immediately apparent once you get on the table. Michael is attentive, intuitive and skilled. His approach is therapeutic yet soothing. He takes his time to focus on every part of the body. Great stretching techniques as well. Calming ambience with light music, perfect lighting and plants thriving everywhere. I've been a client for a couple years now and will continue to support his gift. Don't hesitate to book an experience with him!
