Overview

Hi guys, My name is Ruben and I’d like to invite you to my massage studio to relax.

I am a classically trained dancer and Yogi. I’m well versed in human anatomy, pain management, workout training, and yoga.

I approach massage with Swedish and deep tissue techniques. I incorporate rolling, petrissage, kneading, hacking, decompression, trigger point, breath and energy work, to name a few. I am a natural mover and use a rhythm and flow as I work... through the body. I use my hands, palms, knuckles, and forearms in order to give a variety of different pressures. I’m very intuitive and approach each client with compassion and empathy.

I work out of a studio in the galleria in Houston, Texas. My amenities include a heated massage table, aromatherapy, towels, calming music, candles and a shower for use, if needed. Salt lamps are around to induce relaxation and help clear out negative energy.

Please be prepared to share your name, age, height, weight, and if you have any allergies. I am cordial, humble and, professional. I expect the same from my clients. I welcome everyone to my studio. I provide a safe space for the gay and straight community.

Please TEXT me to schedule and set up your appointment. If I am in session, your call may be missed.

Testimonials

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

Dec. 15, 2020 in Houston, TX (in-studio)

Excellent massage! He’s great with making you feel comfortable and relaxed. He takes his time and is very thorough. He will take the time to spend extra time on parts of my body that are hurting the most. He is more thorough than anyone that’s ever worked on me. He’s awesome and has very kind and caring personality!

Ruben is great at using the right amount of pressure on different parts of the body. Ruben’s therapeutic technique not only feels clinical, but it also feels caring. Ruben’s extensive knowledge on massage and muscle tissue allows him to deliver a great massage. He will refer to different body parts by the technical terms and sometimes I feel like I’m talking to a doctor! My back and my legs feel rejuvenated after he digs deep in between the muscle layers. Ruben genuinely cares about his clients and checks in to make sure I’m doing okay during our session. Ruben has spent time and effort in learning his craft. I’ve tried other therapist and none compare to Ruben. Give him a try, I promise you won’t regret it.

I have been a client of Ruben’s for several months now and he gives a great massage. I have been recovering from back surgery over the previous year and was looking for a therapist that could incorporate good therapy into my session. I mentioned this to him and he replied with genuine interest into my my back condition.
Ruben has a separate private room with a very comfortable and heated massage table. He always starts the session by asking further questions about my areas of concern that are troubling my body. It was clear that he modifies his approach to the individual client’s needs. We started with some passive stretching techniques to get me loosened up. His massage techniques were just what I was looking for. I asked for deep myofascial work in my lumbosacral/gluteal area and somewhat lighter work elsewhere. Ruben was very attentive to how I was responding to his work and his use of continuously warmed oil was especially welcomed. During our session, he spent additional time going over some stretches and isometric exercises that he thought would be helpful. He is very knowledgeable about human anatomy and has great technique.
I’m so glad I came across Ruben and have been seeing him every other week for several months now. He has a great level of skill and would recommend no less than a 90 minute session.

I get massages from Ruben on a regular basis. He has extensive knowledge about massage technique and I knew after the first session that he was going to be my go to therapist. Ruben uses a variety of modalities to take away the stress and the pain of the body. He is very thorough and will pay extra attention to problematic areas. If ever I have a sore spot, he is always able to take care of it and bring much needed relief. I always leave my session feeling absolutely amazing. I'm sure you'll enjoy a great massage from him, just as I have time and time again.

My massage with Ruben was a totally awesome experience. During the massage, Ruben made me feel safe, comfortable, and relaxed. He was definitely focused on relieving the tension in my body. He used slow, long, deliberate strokes and the soreness in my shoulder blades disappeared. The massage was both therapeutic and relaxing, with deep pressure, as requested. He checked in several times, asking about the pressure and my comfort level. He did a fantastic job. Do yourself a favor & find yourself on Ruben's table. I'll definitely be back soon and look forward to the next session.

Ruben was very professional and provided a high quality massage. He used quality products, and had a well-appointed atmosphere for relaxation. I received a wonderful detoxifying massage and it was the exact treatment that I was looking for. No doubt, I will book him again.
