Hisham gave an extraordinary massage, attentive to my needs as a very active athletic person, balancing stretching and incredibly wonderful therapeutic modalities to perfection. Plus, he is incredibly, sweet, communicative and kind! Thank you !!!"

Booking a massage with Hisham was the best way to spend my short time in LA.
Hisham’s intuition, technique and all around great energy made for a truly relaxing and stress free appointment. I melted away for an hour in the safety of Hishams experience and warmth. Thank you so much, see you next time I’m in LA.

This past week I had the good fortune to have a massage from Hisham. It was more than I could have imagined. He truly has an ability to find spots that need help and focus on that area without even asking. He anticipated everything I wanted so I could just relax. His kind nature was welcoming and made me comfortable right away. I have had many massages and this was one of the best!

What a great massage! Hisham is the real deal. First, he is a great communicator — from timely text messages to asking me what I need before the treatment began. Second, his studio is extremely clean and hygienic. Hisham also knows how to blend effective therapy, deep pressure and beneficial stretching, with an oasis for the spirit and mind. Finally, he is a warm, respectful, and kind person. You will be in special hands!

My massage experience with Hisham was fantastic.. he knew what he was doing, worked on my sore muscles and painful knots. It wasn’t just relaxing and deep also used streching methods which was better than expected. I left feeling much better and would definitely recommend his session.

April 01, 2023 in Los Angeles, CA (in-studio)

"Hisham is phenomenal at what he does. He was kind, gracious, and gave me one of the best massages I've ever had. Not only did he do an amazing job with his hands to stretch my muscles and smooth my aches and pains, he also created a safe environment that was welcoming and calm. I'll absolutely be booking with him again."

Hisham is one of the best massage therapists I’ve had. I’ve definitely become a repeat client and will continue to get massages regularly from him. He has a firm therapeutic touch but his approach and presence are gentle and relaxing. He somehow manages to provide an incredibly soothing experience as a whole while working the right specific muscles and tensions. He’s incredibly skilled and talented and knows exactly what he’s doing. I truly feel healed after a session with Hisham. Plus he’s such a lovely person. I can’t recommend him enough.

Sept. 01, 2022 in San Francisco, CA (in-studio)

Had the good fortune to book a massage appointment with Hisham while traveling in San Francisco. He is an obviously trained masseur who learned well and has had years of experience applying and refining his knowledge. On top of that, he’s a super pleasant person who clearly cares deeply about his craft. Highly recommended and I will definitely book with him next time I pass through LA!

Outstanding!! I felt so light refreshed and happy after my massage. Perfect amount of pressure, stretching and combining massage techniques eased my back pain, woke up next morning with no pain what so ever! Can't wait for my next visit

I write this review with genuine gratitude and deep appreciation for Hisham. Over the past seven months, I have had around eight 90-minute massages from Hisham. I have honestly never encountered a masseur like him. Never before have I returned to a masseur so many times. Hisham is simply remarkable. He is extremely well versed in the body. He knows what he is doing. What’s more, he is clearly thinking at all times about how to provide the best massage possible, to this particular person, on this particular day. He is diligent and thorough, gentle yet strong, and very kind. His massage studio is pristine and serene. He always plays beautiful, soothing music. In my opinion, Hisham is a not just a remarkable masseur, but a remarkable person, with high standards for himself and others. I feel very lucky to have found him and he has become an integral part of my health and wellness routine. Give him a try. If you are looking for a real massage from a talented masseur and a fundamentally beautiful man, you won’t be disappointed.

Hisham has the natural talent and skills of a true massage therapist. Having received massages from around the world, not many can hold up to the talent of Hisham. He is responsive and easy to books sessions. From the very first moment of meeting him, his aura and personality is warm, inviting, and puts you at ease. Those attributes are also infused into his massage techniques, touch, and talented hands. He has an innate ability to read your body and muscles, find the areas that need attention, and perform body care through massage and stretching. You cannot go wrong with selecting Hisham for your professional massage needs. He is absolutely the “crème de la crème!”

I am a very active professional who bicycles daily and works out regularly. From time to time I need a deep tissue massage, and when that time comes around, I go to Hisham. The service provided by Hisham is of the highest caliber. The environment in which he practices is exceptionally clean and lends an ambiance of healing and positive energy. His strong powerful hands provide an escape from life's stressors. I have had three massages from Hisham and consider myself a dedicated and loyal client moving forward. Over the past 20 years I have engaged the services of a number of professional massage therapists, and Hisham's approach and technique is unmatched. Ninety minute sessions are my preference, and I always leave feeling like my entire body has been transformed into a state of total relaxation. In addition to his artistic skill at massage, Hisham has a charming personality and conversation with him is easy. I am grateful to have discovered Hisham and am very much looking forward to my next massage from him.

Hisham was the last massage therapist I saw before the pandemic quarantine, and the first I immediately booked with as soon as I was vaccinated. He is the best in the business, and I have had a lot of LA massages. He truly is talented and focused at knowing how to get rid of your aches and pains, and he knows how to relax you to the point of sighs and drifting off to sleep modes several times through. Hisham is the kindest man ever, and he is so easy to book with, and I am so glad I found him in LA, and that he takes such good care of me each and every time. Can’t recommend Hisham enough!!

I have had countless massages all over the world - at 5 star hotels spas, to Thai masseurs on a in Thailand, to the local neon-lit $50 amateur massage shops abundantly found in all major cities throughout the United States - so I can tell you with thorough experience that Hisham’s 90 minute deep-tissue massage was one of the top 3 best massages I have ever had in my life.

I went to him with a tightness in my left shoulder and trapezius muscle which spread up my neck that had been bothering me for 3 days. No amount of sleep and/or stretching had been helping. I don’t have words to articulate the craft involved in his technique but it felt like a mastery of art. Not only did I leave without the pain I had hoped a massuer would be able to isolate and relieve, but my entire body felt rejuvenated. Honestly it was like nothing else I’ve ever experience. He is an artist.

If you are looking for the “real deal,” and Hisham is available, don’t look any further. Trust me, you will want to thank me for reading this review after he works on you.

Definitely a repeat client
The main objective of my house-call massage was my aches and pain . Massage has been my regular routine after hard days work and work outs. The quarantine has made it difficult. It was a great experience to come across Hisham on my search , a professional guy , well mannered - most of all CoVID-19 prepared ! I was skeptical at first considering the current pandemic. However this guy has reassured of the things that I was looking for.

The session was excellent , this healer knew the channels and meridian . The flow of techniques and pressure were just perfect, we need more of these healer. I am definitely a repeat client

I recently received my first massage from Hisham and it was so truly amazing that less than 12 hours later I was back in his strong yet tender hands for my second massage. Hisham radiates with kindness and caring. You are first greeted by his warm smile and sparkling eyes, immediately putting you at ease. His hands move over your body with ease as he seems to instinctively know the parts of your body that need his healing touch the most. Hisham is professional, respectful and thoughtful with every touch. I have never experienced a massage that felt so naturally perfect in every possible way, as if his hands and my body had found perfect harmony and balance. That is why I could not get Hisham and his mesmerizing massage out of my mind and had to experience that level of relaxation and bliss again within hours. He is truly a gifted massage therapist and magnificent soul to connect with as often as possible.

My massage experience with Hisham is nothing less than fantastic. He responded to my initial inquiry about scheduling an appointment in a timely manner. When I arrived to his location I found it to be quite comforting and very inviting. When he began the message I knew instantly I would be returning. Not only Hisham is skilled at his craft but he is also very kind, welcoming and very handsome.

I am looking forward to my next appointment with Hisham. He is definitely worth the time. Do not hesitate, book your appointment with Hisham, you will not be disappointed.

Hisham is a great find here in Los Angeles. I have gotten lots of massages here over the years, and this was one of the best ever! First of all, I texted him and he immediately answered, and just happened to be 15 minutes away, and he came right over. Such a warm, welcoming friendly person! Cordial and polite, he set up quickly and we were off to bliss business. Hisham has that perfect combination of skill and natural talent. He has THE GIFT. He literally exudes warmth and energy radiating from his strong hands. Perfect balance of therapeutic and relaxing. He knew when to chill me out and when to work hard on my achy muscles, knots and joints. He gives incredible feet work (a lot of therapists skip over that area). Hisham worked in silence but I could hear and feel his hard working heart and soul the whole time. Truly a beautiful experience from head to toe and in between. Nurturing and relaxing and pain crushing, book with this sweet soul of a healer today!

Hisham is a lovely welcoming guy with great massage skills and also great conversational skills. It honestly felt like hanging with a friend who ends up making you feel amazing by the time you leave.

Very comfortable room with shower facilities offered and professional table. I felt completely at ease from the second I arrived until the second I left. Hisham is very skilled and he listens to what your needs are.

I will certainly be making an appointment to see him again when I'm next in L.A. Superb holistic experience, unrushed and a joy to have meet. Thanks Hisham

I’ve had a fair share of massages due to an old sports injury. That’s why I was surprised when I met Hisham. By far, he has the best hands in LA. His touch was perfect and his energy was super kind. By far he’s the best masseur I’ve seen in the City this year.

June 08, 2019 in West Hollywood, CA (mobile)

Probably one of the most relaxing massages I’ve ever had. Professional and gracious from start to finish. Will definitely get another 🙏🙏🙏
