Brian is a lovely, warm and caring person and a compassionate professional with expert massage skills. I had a completely relaxing experience. I've had a tough time with side effects from recent surgery. My sessions with Brian were exactly what I needed to accelerate my recovery.
Many thanks,

I had an awesome massage experience with Brian!!! His location was convenient for me, and the ambiance of the studio and comfort of the table were amazing! He is highly skilled and confident and thoroughly worked every area of my body, checking in periodically to make sure the pressure was perfect. He's very easy to talk to and although he looks great in his photos he's even better looking in person! I regret that I didn't schedule a 90 minute massage, but definitely will next time.
Thank you,
Lee

We been feeling great since we started receiving massages from you. I am able do strong workouts, no nerve pinch, and most importantly enjoying the freedom to move without hesitation.
Both of us feel like you have next level healing intuition, and unmatched knowledge and skills. No BS, you are the best practitioner we have ever worked with.
Thank you so much! We feel great!

WOW! Brian provides a top-notch massage - a rare combination of strength, knowledge of the body, and energy sensitivity. Scheduling was simple (I used his calendy link) and he is very clear in the confirmation about all the logistics and expectations. After the massage, I felt the positive benefits for days. I've already scheduled my next visit.

I like fairly heavy pressure and longer full-body strokes, so it felt like he brought all of me back together. He includes some energy work, which lifted me up at the end. I was a bit nervous before meeting Brian, he's a fit and attractive guy (I am neither), but I have to say he had no sense of judgement or hesitation.

Thank you so much Brian!

The best shoulder massage ever! It was a great experience throughout. It's a very calming environment and Brian was very accommodating to my concerns. I highly recommend to others to experience the massage for themselves!

My experience with Brian was stellar. I went to him with a pinched radial nerve and cervical compression. I was in pain and very reticent about anyone touching my neck; but it had gotten to a point where I couldn’t turn my head or even sleep because of the pain. Brian listened attentively to my description and said he thought he could help. He was gentile around the neck, but also incorporated traction, which not even PT had done. At the end of the 2 hours, I had 180 degree movement of my head, no pain, no more numbness — and that night I slept soundly. Now, two months later, none of my symptoms have returned. The rest of the massage was just impressive and enjoyable. Brian is a master of his craft. I wish only that I lived nearer so that I be a regular beneficiary of his skills.

Prior to my massage today, I was feeling the draining effects of several rescent, stress-filled days. I needed this massage and had been looking forward to it for a week. Though it wasn't fair to place so many expectations on Brian, he exceeded them all. Spending 90 minutes with him was exactly what I needed. Within minutes, I knew intuitively that I could trust him and my body started easing into a gradually more relaxed state. I left completely refreshed and ready to resume the "rat race." Brian's space is both professional and inviting, and his technique, especially on my shoulders and lats, was extraordinary. Trust me when I say that I've had a wide variety of massage experiences and I give Brian my highest recommendation.
Thank you,
Jay

Brian gave me the massage I never knew I needed. Hands down the best massage I've ever had and I've a lot of massages in my day. He's helped me work through my softball and weight training injuries this year. The atmosphere of his studio and the energy he puts into his work is felt. It's a relief to find someone that can give a serious massage.
Many Thanks,

Every time and in every moment, Brian knows exactly how and where to apply the perfect pressure to restore my body’s balance. His understanding of the body’s anatomy is more profound than muscles, bones, ligaments, and tendons and reaches further than what his science, massage, and graphic design educations gave him in the multiple Anatomy & Physiology courses he completed. His penchant for restoring wholeness is felt in the way he intuits the body’s resistance, as if he knows what wholeness in my unique body feels like and then helps me get there. Feeling good in my body has been a long journey, and I’m grateful to have Brian as one of my coaches along the way.

Thank you for the great massage yesterday Brian.

I had been experiencing some tension and buildup in my lower back and neck from somewhat poor posture and a high stress job, and the strength you utilized from your elbows and forearms were able to greatly alleviate these discomforts and mold my body back to where it needed to be. The space you provide is a pristine environment for relaxation and comfort and your centralized location is very convenient. I will certainly be returning as you’ve made me aware of how good my body can really feel. Thank you very much. And for anyone else who may be reading this: he is devilish handsome and a truly kind soul.

All the best and see you soon

Brian is certainly one of the very best. He has it all. I can’t remember the last time I received a massage session that was as perfect as this one. It’s relaxing as well as therapeutic. It’s fun “watching” Brian finding the knots and then blasting them away. Every second was wonderful. Hope to receive many more.
Thank you,

Brian is honestly incredible massage therapist. He's got magic elbows, an amazing studio, and the best environment for relaxing. It also goes without saying that he's extremely attractive.
