May 14, 2024 in Spring Valley, CA (in-studio)

My session with Brandon was a profound journey of healing. The beautiful view set a tranquil backdrop as Brandon expertly guided me through breath work, connecting me deeply with the natural surroundings. His massage technique was both gentle, strong and intentional, releasing stress and restoring my energy flow. The personalized yoga therapy fostered inner peace and balance, while the overall transformational healing session lifted emotional burdens, leaving me feeling clear and light. Brandon’s intuitive and nurturing presence made this holistic experience deeply rejuvenating, harmonizing body, mind, and spirit. This sanctuary is a true haven for those seeking spiritual and physical renewal. I did the 2 hour combo of modalities, highly recommended.

Thanks for the massage Brandon! I’ve had a lot of massages in my life. This is probably the best I’ve ever had. Your technique and pressure was perfect for what I needed.

I have has the pleasure of receiving massages from Brandon several times over the past year and he is a wonderful, intuitive therapist. I am also a fellow therapist, so that is the highest accolade. While he is skilled in many techniques, I always prefer a deep tissue/sports massage, but make no mistake, he will deliver in whatever forms you prefer.

Not only do I get massages form him but I additionally attend his bi-weekly yoga sessions, where his skills continue to showcase his talents and nurturing demeanor. To cap it all off, I have also attended two yoga retreats that he administered. These for me were very spiritual, also fulfilling and fun. These included yoga sessions and massages, as well as, hot tubs, shooting pool, beautiful hikes (one had a hot spring nearby). At the end of the day it is more than just introspection but also laughing and sharing.

Whether a massage, a yoga session or a beautiful retreat, you are in good hands with Brandon.

Brandon has a wonderful, calm and welcoming vibe, and is very responsive to feedback and adjusting to what my body needed in the moment.
I wanted to share that I woke up the morning after the massage without my whole body aching and muscles feeling super stiff/sore for the first time in *ages* (had almost forgotten that this feeling is what normal *should* feel like!) and wanted to say Thank you again! 😊

Brandon’s energy & studio is gorgeous and calming. With his massage he offered me a space where I felt free to express my needs on both a physical and spiritual level.
I felt I was able to let go and rejuvenate my whole being. I got a package with him and have been seeing him for a year now. I’ll keep coming back again and again.
The view from his home studio is epic, all he offers is a must try! Leave feeling peaceful & reflective every time.

Brandon gives an excellent massage. Most therapists don’t listen when I say I need deep pressure, but he did, and he was very controlled but exact about it. He knows what he’s doing. My legs, arms, back, and body feel much better these couple days after being under his care.
Brandon is strong, generous, sweet, kind, and mindful. He gives off a warm, caring positive energy that shines through on and off his table. I recommend him heartily, with only the hesitation that San Diego will soon discover him and he will get too busy! I will be back again soon to enjoy many more sessions. Thanks Brandon.

Brandon was a life saver. He was able to accommodate my rather spontaneous schedule, and his space was nice and clean. My body is always stressed and over worked, but when I left I felt so good. Brandon was So intuitive and worked on my trouble spots without me even asking. His massage pressure was perfect (deep and firm). Next day I had the best workout. I felt like I had finally loosened up and I had less pain in my joints. I had a great first session with him - and I’m sure I will be back.
Thanks again!
