I am committed to keeping you safe and healthy in a clean hygienic environment.

I've been a massage therapist here in New York City for 16 years. I give 100% with regards to purpose, concentration and shear physical effort. I am quite adept at discerning the level of pressure needed by the man on my table. I am very resourceful and use all the tools at my disposal: fingers, palms, heel of the hand, forearms, elbows.

My dance background... profoundly informs my massage practice ie., use of my center of gravity to apply pressure, many and varied ways to implement strokes. I know how muscles work and how to return them from a state of stress to ease.

I am a member of and support the LGBTQ community. All men, regardless of age, body type, appearance, straight, gay, bi are welcome. My mission is to help men find well-being in mind, body and spirit!

Being consistently physically active, it was hard for me to find an effective massage therapist. For many reasons, Eric is that needle in a haystack. He is knowledgeable, strong, and empathetic. He is also dedicated to his work and genuinely aims to provide you with 100% of his talent and skill.

His studio is clean and comfortable with a heated table which I appreciate. He immediately inquires about the status of my body, whether I have any injuries or if there areas in need of special focus.

From the moment he starts massaging me, I know that Eric understands human musculature. He puts his all into the session and checks in throughout the session to be sure I’m comfortable. I like deep tissue massage and Eric has the strength and stamina to go the full 90 or 120 minutes.

You know you’ve had a great massage when your body feels like it’s been worked on thoroughly but also feels like it could melt into the massage table. Eric consistently provides this which is why I am a satisfied and regular client.

I have had many massages over the years and my recent appointment with Eric was both excellent and unique. First of all, I reiterate the accolades from the previous testimonials: namely that he is prompt, friendly, caring, attentive, communicative, calming, strong, knowledgeable and exceptionally skilled, with a keen attention to detail. What made my experience unique was that he used his powerful musculature to access areas I had never had worked on by other masseurs like the scalp and deep shoulder area. His ability to use his strong hands and arms in providing sustained pressure and kinetic energy was beyond impressive. Throughout the two hours, he answered all my questions, and I felt his complete attention was directed at healing my body. Concurrently, Eric fostered a spirit of teamwork; that we'd attack the trouble spots together through effective and precise communication. When I walked out of the session, I felt a physical and emotional tranquility. In short, the guy is incredibly talented. I will definitely be visiting him again, and I give him the highest recommendation.

Eric combines an extraordinary technical skill set with a remarkable intuitive artistry. He completely understands anatomy and structure but knows that a great massage is not simply a manipulation of muscles, ligament, tendons, and joints. I have had several massages with him and each one gets better as we get to know each other. During the work he checks in to make sure degrees of pressure are working well. He has large strong hands and employs arms, elbows, and knees as needed. His energetic focus is complete as he creates an atmosphere of trust and safety. Nothing feels rote. Eric is warm and compassionate. I look forward to seeing him again.

I have had the pleasure of seeing Eric on a number of occasions for a massage and have never been disappointed. Eric has a tremendous personality and has the ability to make you feel at ease and exudes a calmness which is very conducive for a great massage.

Eric works out and has strong hands and is very good about asking what kind of pressure you prefer and being tall, he is able to offer longer stokes across the body which all make for a great massage. Eric is great at communicating and checking in prior to an actual appointment and he has always been punctual for each massage. I have never felt rushed or neglected, in fact just the opposite, he is always present and engaged and is great with communicating and he is equally comfortable during times of silence, which I find important as part of my massage experience. I normally contact Eric a few days in advance to make sure he is available and never schedule a massage for less than 90 minutes as Eric is very thorough and takes his time to properly massage each muscle group of the body. I totally recommend making an appointment with Eric and I assure you will not be disappointed. One Great Masseur!

After years of neglect, my neck and shoulders were locked in place; limited movement, painful, aching, generally almost immovable. And within a couple of focused sessions on the most problematic areas, Eric’s massages have allowed me to move again. Eric is one of the best masseurs I've ever experienced; he's well trained, strong, communicative, clearly knows what he's doing; and most importantly, he listens and asks questions.

Eric is a pro. I've experienced a wide range of massages and massage therapists throughout the world. His training and experience is exceptional and it shows throughout his work. Eric knows the body. I really like how he checks in at the beginning of the massage to discuss any muscle groups that need extra attention. He then tailors the massage to meet the needs expressed. This was no cookie-cutter approach, the massage was designed for exactly what was needed. How refreshing! Eric communicates really well during the massage and intuitively makes space for quiet when needed. I floated out of the room afterwards. Run, don't walk if you have an opportunity to book Eric for a massage! Oh...and he's a great guy too.

Eric is the best. From the moment you meet him, he treats you like an old friend. And the massage is terrific. He worked out all my knots and found knots I didn’t even know I had; he varies his pressure, going from relaxing to very deep and back again. I have had massages for many years, in many different cities. I’ve encountered masseurs with attitude, or ones who just don’t put in the effort; a few have been terrible and most have been just adequate. All these so-so massages made me appreciate Eric even more. It’s easy to find a masseur, but difficult to find a good one — and Eric is a GREAT one. (Trust me: You will get a terrific massage).

I went to Eric for some pain in my lower back and sciatica issues. He was attentive, strong, thoughtful and fully engaged. He truly cares about the experience and listens well to the body. The deep tissue technique he uses is very effective. I sleep like a log after each massage session! He is respectful, professional and very accommodating. I would recommend him highly to anyone looking for a sensitive yet strong and masterful masseur. You won't be disappointed!

Eric Diamond is true to his name. He is a gem of a massage therapist. He is attentive, intuitive and remarkably thorough. Time spent on his table is time I truly treasure. He is extremely skilled at providing the exact pressure your body needs. He gives the single best deep tissue massage that I have ever received. His cleaning and sanitizing precautions are excellent. I recommend him with the highest regard and respect.

I have known Eric for a number of years and have minor arthritis. I know that after a 90 minute session, I will sleep well that night (and sometimes the night after) and my body will feel great the following day.

Because Eric comes from a dancing and personal training background, he knows the muscular system extremely well. He is very strong and can provide very deep pressure, but will adjust pressure to your comfort level. He will check in with you often.

I've been his client for quite awhile. As a result, we communicate very well and he always modifies the massage for my particular muscular needs that day. Eric is always experimenting with new ways to relieve my arthritis and any other physical issues I may be having.

He has a cozy studio convenient to both Midtown and Downtown. Eric will provide soothing sounds (I like the ocean), water to drink, a shower is also available. He is a gentleman in every way and cares a great deal about his clients' well being.

Eric is the simply the best masseur you could hire.

Eric is an excellent massage therapist whose concern for his clients distinguishes him from many of his peers. I have been a loyal and satisfied client for over a year. I look forward to my monthly appointments because I know that Eric's therapeutic techniques will relieve my aches and leave me feeling rejuvenated.
Very important to me also is that he is a genuinely nice, considerate, courteous person. He has the gift of putting a client at ease from the outset, so important to maximizing the full benefit of massage. Throughout each session he checks on the pressure he is exerting and readily makes adjustments to the client's comfort level.
Eric is a consummate professional. If you want the benefit of a great massage from a therapist who is totally focused on your well-being, make an appointment with Eric. You will be very happy that you did.

My annual visit to New York is not complete until I see Eric for a massage. He is conscientious, punctual and professional. It wonderful to have a massage by Eric right before I leave New York to take the ten-hour flight home. His work makes for an easy flying experience and I highly recommend Eric to travelers and those who might become regulars. You won’t be disappointed.

Nirvāṇa in NYC. I had an excellent massage with Eric. His technique was perfect, Eric checked in throughout the whole session. I definitely recommend booking with Eric. You will not be disappointed. Phenomenal and relaxed afterward.

Eric is an excellent masseuse. He is caring and intuitive, paying attention to your body, while providing an extremely deep massage. His nature and touch are very relaxing and enjoyable.

April 15, 2017 in Brooklyn, NY (mobile)

I have had a wonderful experience working with Eric and I highly recommend him. His professionalism and technical skill are matched by genuine warmth and an intuitive, sensitive approach. Eric made me feel very comfortable and communicated effectively both before and during the massage which made the experience feel very personal. I look forward to my next massage with Eric!
