I’ve been practicing massage for 5 years. I’ve been certified with the California Massage Therapy Council for 5 years ( Cert #70123). My clientele is mostly comprised of members of the LGBTQ+ community but anyone is welcome to book a massage with me.

I specialize in deep tissue, sports, myofascial technique and stretching and I’m more in my zone when I work on physically active, goal-oriented people. I prefer working... in a relaxed, open and professional atmosphere and encourage clear communication before, during and after the massage to make sure your expectations are met.

To better accommodate you, please try to book in advance. I rarely take appointments with less than 2 hours notice.

I look forward to hearing from you!

Franco's massage is a cut above the rest. Hands down! In over twenty years of living in NYC I can say I finally found a regular massage therapist. The trick is to see if the second massage is just as good as the first. It was Better. Everything from the initial communication and appointment set up, to his approachable and kind demeanor upon meeting. Then he begins with breath work and adds some essential oils to keep your head clear. He checks in on the pressure, pays special attention to the problems areas you requested at the start of the session and combines strong pressure with soothing fluid strokes. The studio isnt cramped like so many other NYC locations and the lighting, temp, and music have always been just right. Each time I leave him I immediately text him that "it's magic" and start looking at my calendar for the next appointment. He's an absolute hunk with skills. Book an appointment.

Franco is an excellent masseur. He was very professional and made sure all my problem areas were addressed. He was able to work out all the knots while keeping the massage very relaxing. He is a highly skilled massage professional. I would highly recommend him.
