Due to ongoing precautionary measures, massage therapy services may not be available in all communities. Please contact providers directly regarding availability.


Your well being is my top priority. I am COVID vigilant, vaccinated, and take precautions to keep us both safe.

Drawing on my studies of Swedish and deep tissue massage, I provide mindful touch with soothing rhythm. I use my forearms for long, gliding strokes. Combining effleurage (circular movements with light friction) and petrissage (lifting and kneading the muscles), I offer a client-directed, area-specific full-body treatment. My hands are big, strong, and skilled.

I work on a professional table in... a private apartment, with a warm and inviting atmosphere. I am located in a doorman building on the UWS, in New York City, close to Columbia University. I work with anyone identifying as male in the straight, bisexual and gay communities.

Please text me, tell me your name, a little bit about yourself, and how I can help you.

I’ve received several massages from Philip, and plan on getting many more. He has great hands and an intuitive touch. This makes for a deeply satisfying experience every time. From my first appointment, I felt extremely comfortable in Philip’s home and appreciated how he encouraged me to provide feedback so that I got the satisfaction I needed. I highly recommend him, and predict that you will be a repeat client like me.

I’ve been getting massages from Philip for a few years and I can truly say he’s a pro. He has great technique and knows how to get rid of knots in a way that makes me melt, not squirm. His home is a great environment for a massage, it is really calm and quite … . Highly recommended!!

Philip is an amazing massage therapist. I live in Paris and visit NYC often. Over the last four years, I have received many massages from Philip. He is always attentive, and in tune with my body. The setting is clean and well appointed. The environment is warm and welcoming. And his friendly personality always puts me at ease.
