Testimonials

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

Dec. 30, 2018 in Fort Lauderdale, FL (in-studio)

By far the best and most professional massage I have ever had. Rafael made time for me very fast, and on a Sunday as well. I was amazed with his knowlege on all aspects of therapy. Not only the body but also mind and spirit. Rafael massage skills are second to none, I feel totally regenerated. I will be back soon for another session with Rafael. I highly reccomend Rafael if you are serious about your body and mind.

Where do I begin? Rafael is a true GEM of a person and the BEST massage therapist I have experienced to date. That is a HUGE statement since I have travelled all over the United States and the Caribbean and had too many massages to count, and I also love giving them myself. So it takes a lot to impress me, but again Rafael is a MASTER at his craft. He is one of the kindest individuals I have met, has an amazing energy that instantly puts you at ease and makes you feel like you have known him for a long time, and most importantly his techniques are superb and his vast knowledge of the body and various massage modalities are astounding. His place is immaculate and he has selected the perfect music as well to really enhance the experience. I did not want the session to end. I chose the Swedish option, but I really want to try his Thai massage, which he has studied extensively and practiced for many many years. I will definitely be back and I highly recommend him to anyone who is visiting the area and on the fence about choosing a massage therapist. He is the REAL deal and you will be blown away by what he offers. Thank you Rafael for a phenomenal experience and for the pleasure of meeting you. You have set the bar extremely high now and I'm afraid it will be hard to find others as passionate about their craft, experienced, skillful and genuine as you. I just might have to move to Miami.

I have had plenty of massages and this one by far has been my favorite. He made my shoulder blade feel amazing. Very sweet, soft and warm touch and when needed, deep and strong. Words cannot describe how he fixed my aches. You must try it out for yourself.

I scheduled a Thai massage at my Surfside hotel room. Rafael is very passionate about Thai massage and very good. It's a day later and my body feels great. He was very professional and clearly knew what he was doing.

Rafael is professional and polite. As a businessman on travel, I needed stress relief and he delivered a great massage. I definitely would recommend Rafael and I will call on him again next time I'm Miami.
