Michael is a uniquely qualified professional who works with individual clients' needs to offer the best of himself as a massage therapist. I arrived feeling disjointed and disconnected from my own body and left his studio feeling like a new human.
I appreciated his use of the breath, the essential oils (opt.), and hot towels to enhance my experience on the massage table. I'm already looking forward to my next appointment. That said, I'm going to savor this most excellent experience today and for the days to come.

Thank you, Michael. À la prochaine!

Michael helped our group, who was out in Santa Fe for a retreat from many different states. He was so helpful, friendly, and went above and beyond to accommodate our group and fit us into his schedule for multiple massage appointments.

Michael was also very patient and worked around our guests time and schedule changes, and provided our group with amazing, relaxing massages!

We recommend Michael to anyone that is traveling in the Santa Fe or Albuquerque area for his massage services.

Thank you, Michael for your great, professional & friendly services!

I found Michael to be a delight to talk with while enjoying my massage. He is professional, knowledgeable, and so very likeable. I enjoyed the entire experience!

Michael delivered the most unbelievable massage I have ever received. He is simply the best and his work is unforgettable.

His space vibrates with great energy, simplicity and cleanliness. His massage and demeanor made me feel safe and warm, relaxed and renewed.

This was my second appointment for massage with Michael & once again, he didn’t disappoint!

It’s obvious he has proper bodywork training and he knows what he’s doing.

He was great at assessing problem areas & working on those issues.

Both times I left feeling totally relaxed & felt amazing the next day. Worth every penny, then some!

Michael did a great job; my legs and feet were hurting and he made them feel better. His style of bodywork is professional, kind and relaxing.

I have already scheduled more bodywork with him and I will tell my friends about him.

I have been back to Michael many times for bodywork and each time I try to convey to him my problem areas, which he does attend too, but he seems to read the areas of my body that need attention that I didn’t even realize. I am on my feet all day and the work he does on my legs and feet is amazing. And then there is the mud scrub … .oh man if you want a delight I encourage anyone to try it because you will love it! Michael is polite, professional and thorough.

I have had several massages from Michael, and each one seems better the prior one. Michael has a very intuitive touch and a demeanor that makes you feel immediately comfortable. He is very attuned to your body and his massage is tailored to you. Run, don’t walk, to your next massage with Michael!

Great massage and super cool
Place. The pressure was perfect. I felt relaxed and calmed. Definitely coming back. It’s so hard to find excellent therapists.
