Overview

If you would like a massage session take the care and time to compose a thoughtful text. It will be worth your time.
In1997, I graduated from Tucson's Desert Institute and continued my studies at Esalen and in Thailand. Memorable massage is a shared journey not a series of rehearsed strokes. Each massage I share is unique. My offering, is a custom mix of Esalen, focused deep tissue, relaxing Swedish, targeted trigger points, Thai stretches, and unbonding Myofascial release.... Massage is luxurious so I use a heated table and comfy sheets.
My 2 decade long LGBTQ practice is nondiscriminatory and open to all. If you would like a response reach out by e-mail and tell me a little bit about yourself and what you are seeking from your massage expectations. I have been working too long to want to respond to short, incomplete, impersonal or inappropriate communications.

As a person who works a desk job (aka has always had chronic neck / shoulder pain), I've had decades of massages. I can 100% say that Zeke is the best. In this COVID world, having Zeke come to my house and provide a 90 minute outdoor backyard session has been the only thing that's kept me sane. It's just pure bliss. I may never prefer an indoor massage again.

Just as his website mentions, he's all about improvisation - like good jazz. My second session was nothing like my first. After my first, I felt so energized that I wanted to go for a run. After my second, I slept like a baby...and by that I mean, I fell asleep that evening without soreness in my shoulder for the first time in years.

He's extremely talented and in another era, he'd be considered a healer. Yes, he's that good. For anyone who needs just a little TLC during this crazy time, I suggest shooting Zeke a note. But please not everyone as I'd still like my regular backyard sessions. :)

Ezekiel (Zeke) is a gifted therapist and one of the most open and kind-hearted people I've ever encountered. A chance meeting after my partner and I had just moved to the East Bay Area connected us with Zeke and we both booked massages with him within a few weeks. He will absolutely be my guy from now on. Hope he stays close to this area for a good long time. His Esalen training and many years of experience pair very well with his intuitive and thoughtful practice as a health professional. He incorporated a great deal of stretching and deep tissue work right along with relaxation and human caring. The pressure was just right and I felt really good for many days following the session. He used body positioning and stretching in an almost yoga-like way that I had never experienced and found it incredibly helpful. He was silent throughout the session which I alway find preferable than small talk as it really helps me focus. At the same time, he took several extra minutes of his own time after the session to just get to know me sincerely and that was just great from my perspective. He also delivered the massage therapy care in my own home which increased the convenience and the comfort. I am looking forward to the next time!

Zeke has the unique gift of intuition that he brings to his massage technique. He has the ability to know exactly what my body needs during a massage and where. In addition he uses the perfect amount of pressure. And he's a great guy! I highly recommend.

I'm kind of a massage connisoeur. It's my therapy - - both physical and mental - - so I'm picky. Really picky. But as I said to Zeke today, finding him feels like winning the massage lottery. Zeke is a maestro of massage. He's strong and intuitive and calm and for the 90 minutes or so that I'm on his table, I feel nothing but bliss. Technically, he's an expert in various modalities and he can seamlessly move from deep tissue to pressure point to Swedish, using whichever technique is most suited to discovering and working into all the nooks and crannies where pain and tension and stress and trauma hide out in my body and my brain. But his magic isn't his technical skill, it's his ability to hold space in the massage for real and intense transformation. It's a rare skill and I'm grateful to be the beneficiary of it.

Zeke deserves every positive comment that's been posted here about him. I have to agree with all of them. He really does provide great therapeutic bodywork.

He checks-in with me before the massage. He has a really nice energy about him. He's got amazing strength. He's intuitive. He's respectful. He's professional. And his massages are always balanced with the strength and pressure I need.

Hands down, he's the best massage therapist I've ever worked with. And he's helped me get through several crises of back and shoulder issues caused by stress and work.

Thanks Zeke, you're wonderful.

My partner frequents professional massage therapists of a wide variety. After she tried Zeke, she was aglow, describing an unparalleled experience of comfort and relaxation. I recently purchased Zeke's two-hour massage for her, after which she was simply beaming. This man has a gift. I can recommend no other name if you want to experience body work as it is meant to be.

This is the best massage experience I've found! My career demands physical movement and my bad habits demand some extra care. I travel all over the country and look forward to coming to Northern California.

Zeke's technique works through the whole body and gives me both the deep massage on my shoulders, hands, and hips that ache, and his work gives me a fresh balance on a daily basis. We have worked together (when I am in the area) since 2004 and I have yet to find a more complete and relaxing massage therapy treatment.

I look forward to another session in a couple of weeks! Thanks!!

I was delighted when I saw that Zeke was going to be in Los Angeles again. I have seen Zeke over a period of 15 years, and every time I have a treatment, it is wonderful. Zeke is incredibly personable, and listens to what your body is telling him. The combination of deep tissue pressure and long muscle strokes is like a dance. He also adds some stretch movements which are incredibly relaxing. I never pass up an opportunity to book a massage with Zeke when he is in town. Neither should you.

Zeke is a friendly guy who met me with a pleasant smile when I opened my door to him for our appointment. He was prompt, arriving just early enough to set up his table. Zeke got right down to business, asking a few general questions about specific aches and pains. He came across as someone who genuinely cares about his work and his clients. Zeke's broad base of training, and how he uses his knowledge, benefited me as he adapted his techniques and pressure during the massage. He was very intuitive about this, as if he knew what I needed before I asked. After the massage, I felt entirely relaxed and rejuvenated. I enjoy massage frequently and in many places. Zeke is definitely the best massage therapist I've encountered. Great credentials and a calm demeanor. Do yourself a favor: when choosing a massage therapist in the Bay Area, save yourself time, and choose Zeke. You will be glad you did.

I have received massages from Zeke for over 10 years, and I see him whenever he is in town. His massage is a wonderful combination of deep tissue, body-long Esalen strokes, and wonderful stretching using his strong hands, elbows, forearms, and knees. His movements are like a dance around your body that will leave you in a dream like state. He will find every stress point and leave you relaxed. He responds quickly to messages and is absolutely dependable. He has a friendly, mountain-man personality and his massage is spiritually nurturing. Time spent with him is simply the very best body work that I have experienced.

An excellent massage session, fully up to previous experience and expectations. There was plenty of deep pressure varied by lighter touch, and very good attention to problem areas including neck and shoulders. I would recommend this masseur at the highest level.
