Hello again, Millcreek! Please reach out to me via text message. We'll get you set up with a massage session. Serving the greater Salt Lake City area at my studio room in Millcreek. Outcall also available.

I am a gay man who excels at easing your tensions and concerns. Once I have you relaxing into my table, I'll begin focusing on your "resting balance" (homeostasis). My intention is to bring your body closer to a healthy and proper... alignment. You can safely rest into the soft warmth of my heated table. I've got you.

My sessions are not timed. Instead, I closely follow my intuition. We go until an organic sense of completion has been reached. Historically, this usually runs around seventy minutes.

I also don't have a set rate. I practice, instead, what I call "client's choice". You alone will determine what you'll give. (This is how I make a living. It does sustain me, if that's any indication of the quality of my work.)

The best way for you to reach me will always be with a text message. Send several, if needed, to the phone number listed here on my ad. Please, be as persistent as you deem appropriate.

Thank you for reading. I really do appreciate it.

My entire life I have struggled to manage the ongoing pain from a childhood accident. Michael first helped me relax and then patiently worked around the trauma area for much longer than any PT or LMT has. His massage experience and intuition helped me to finally learn how to unwind the muscles and scar tissue, and I can now manage the pain on my own. However I still see Michael regularly for his genuine desire to help his patients feel energized, relaxed, and whole within their own bodies.

I strongly recommend Michael to anyone that needs individualized attention and therapeutic touch to help with both chronic and acute pain.

I had a superior massage by Michael: totally unique in modalities which, without intense pressure, positively affected the sources of pain that very few masseurs had reached before. Being a physically active person, I've garnered bone spurs, pinched nerves, bunions blah blah blah. Michael's touch and calm, reassuring approach released enough oxytocin...well, you just have to experience it for yourself. Better catch him when you can.

I can't begin to thank Michael enough for the massage he gave me a few days ago. I have endured chronic pain & headaches for years. When I described some of the symptoms, Michael suggested a cranio-sacral technique.

From the moment I entered his studio I felt relieved... like I had finally found the right guy for the job! The massage was about 70 minutes, & while I experienced brief moments of discomfort, all in all it was a great massage session. What is truly amazing is that nearly a week later I am still almost pain free.

Michael has a unique talent, & a warm inviting personality. Don't hesitate to book a bodywork appointment with him while he's available. I plan on seeing as often as I can!

Thank you so much!

After my massage session with Michael, I woke up the next day feeling relaxed and refreshed! Booking an appointment with him was easy - even on the same day. He was quick to respond keeping me updated on his availability or changes in his schedule.

Upon my arrival, he welcomed me with open arms, making me feel comfortable and at ease. His massage table was very comfortable and the ambiance was perfect.

Throughout our session, he was super attentive, communicative and always asked how I was doing?

Honestly, I was getting lost in the experience. It became clear, after an hour or so, that time wasn't a factor, which is why I will book with him again and again. Definitely book with him if he's in your city. You will not be disappointed.

Michael has the gift of healing touch with his massage, which is very rare to find now a days. He is a VERY talented Bodyworker, masseur, that cares about his clients. He is very accommodating to the point where he arranged his schedule to accommodate me. The moment I laid on his table and, his hands started working out the knots on my back, I knew I was in good hands, and he was a professional. Reasonable? Michael invented the word. I will continue to use Michael on a regular basis, because of him, I do not have to see my chiropractor on a regular basis to be adjusted.

Your touch was so soothing. I fell asleep immediately. I was so relaxed! Honestly, I have not slept like that in months. Best massage I have had in a very long time.
Thank you! Your technique was amazing! The long strokes and the soft strides were amazing!
Thank you.
I'll be coming back.

Oh boy! My heart skips a beat and my breath shortens when I reflect on the amazing massage Michael gave me yesterday.
It was my first time with Michael and he exceeded expectations. He was very helpful when it came to finding a good appointment time. I was nervous at first but he was very warm and welcoming. Talked me through the entire process and helped me feel very comfortable. The massage itself was amazing. Michael is a very friendly guy, he is naturally tactile, personal and a pleasure to spend time with.
Will definitely book again …

Michael arrived right on time, with all his equipment. He did set up the whole “little spa” and I was super comfortable around him; nice conversation, super friendly, and polite – and better looking in-person. ;) I've had a lot of massages before, with many different masseurs, but I'm never gonna forget Michael's magic touch! For sure, I'm gonna do another session with him!

I'm so glad I was able to contact Michael while he was visiting. He really is a gifted masseur. His intuitive approach [to bodywork] was unlike any I've ever experienced. He focused on spots I didn't know needed attention. I left totally relaxed and am looking forward to his next visit to our fair city.

I contacted Michael after seeing he was visiting my town. He was able to accommodate me the same day. His massage skills are amazing and he provides a quiet setting which allows the stress to leave and relaxation to begin.

Michael, thanks so much for an extraordinary healing session. Your talent for massage and your healing energies certainly opened my heart and my chakras! I slept so well that evening! You’re truly a good man, and I’m grateful to have met you. Please let me know when you are back again.
