Cesar is amazing. He met me at the door with a glowing smile and a warm greeting. After introductions, he immediately asked me if I had any area that required extra attention. Cesar took time assessing my body and keyed in on points that I did not know were a problem. Cesar is very knowledgeable of the body structure, the musculature and the overall function of the body. He knew the appropriate amount of pressure to use on each sore area of the body – releasing the tension, knots and soreness. His massage involved various different techniques and modalities depending on what my body needed. His intuitive nature and healing energy comes forth throughout the whole massage. His skills are excellent. His personality is inviting and welcoming. He truly is a healer that uses his knowledge, skills and hands to treat his clients. I am now a regular client that has been seeing him every week for the last 2 months. I have never felt better.

Cesar is a great therapist. We both scheduled 90-minute massages back to back. He was very professional and responsive through the entire process.

When we contacted him initially, he was quick to respond. He was very friendly and asked important questions. The studio space is nice, clean and calming.

The massages were amazing. Cesar was very intuitive and knew exactly what we each needed. Good, firm pressure - strong hands. We both highly recommend him.

Cesar is among the most outstanding massage therapists I have ever experienced. As one of his regular local clients, I look forward to each and every 90-minute massage with Cesar (I wish they were longer). Everything about the massage experience Cesar creates is beyond any resort spa. Cesar is responsive and easy to schedule. His private massage studio is convenient and beautifully appointed. Exquisite art, soft lighting, mellow music, and an incredibly comfortable table welcome me each visit. Ambiance matters, but it is Cesar's special gift as a massage therapist that makes each massage so extraordinary. Cesar is well trained (he knows what he is doing!), and he also uses the information I share at the beginning (often a sore neck and lower back) to inform the incredible massage he creates. Every massage with Cesar is a bit different. His intuition moves him to creative approaches that ease my discomfort and make me feel like new as I leave. His quality is consistent (excellent), and his approach surprises me each time. Cesar is thoughtful, interested, and soothing. For locals and visitors alike, you are in for a beautiful healing massage with Cesar.

I have been a resident of the Palm Springs area for over 25 years and have had many massages from quite a few masseurs. Recently, the therapist that I had been using moved away and I was looking for a new masseur. I saw Cesar’s ad and contacted him. He responded quickly and we scheduled an appointment a few days in the future. The morning of the massage, Cesar contacted me to notify me of a scheduled power outage in his area as he was concerned that his room may be to cold, and he offered me the opportunity to reschedule. I told him I would keep the original appointment and as long as he had a cover if it got to cold, it should be fine for me. When I arrived to his home, he warmly greeted me. We went into the room and it was warm and comfortable. Cesar had turned the heat on before the power had been shut off to make sure I was comfortable. He asked me about concerns and areas that I had issues with and needed him to focus on. I told him about sciatic pain and some issues with my shoulders. Cesar is without doubt the best massage therapist that I have been to in all my years in the area. He worked on all the areas that were problematic and did a wonderful and thorough massage. He helped with all kinds of built up tension in my back, shoulders and legs. He worked on the sciatic pain in my hip and back. Cesar is a very thoughtful, kind and talented therapist and I look forward to seeing him again in a couple weeks.

Caesar is an incredibly-gifted massage therapist. I receive massages regularly, but when my masseur moved away, I needed to find someone. Luckily, I found Caesar who has an uncanny ability to zero in to the areas that require the most work — his fingers detect “knots” as those they were divining oil deposits. I require deep pressure, yet after the session and the day after, I am not at all sore as I have been with some massage therapists. Caesar is truly an amazing professional who takes his work seriously. As his name Caesar suggests, he is indeed the “ruler” and all-knowing when he places his hands onto my back. AJ

I’m new to the desert from San Francisco, and was in dire need to get a massage. It has been over a year and a half since having one, and was a little hesitant with someone new. Then I found Cesar. What a blessing. He is the absolute consummate professional. I’ve been to many Certified Massage Therapists over the years. However, this was my first time someone took the time up front to analyze where the pain was coming from within my body and explained the issues. From there on, it was 90 minutes of relief. (With just a tad of pain). However, he will listen to you, and if the pressure is too deep, but has the intuition of knowing what you need in terms of it, even if you don’t. I left feeling a lot better, and the next day, even better. I would highly recommend Cesar. That, and his massage studio is beautiful, clean, comfortable and he follows all the safety protocols.

Amazing experience from the first massage I booked with Cesar.
I located Cesar on Masseur Finder and continue to be a loyal and regular client. From the start making an appointment with Cesar was an easy process and he accommodated the day and time I requested. When I arrived, I was greeted by a very professional looking man and immediately felt comfortable with the location, massage studio and Cesar himself. The studio is nicely appointed with the perfect temperature, nice soothing music with warmed massage lotion along with warm towels.
He asked if I had any issues or concerns with my body, then started the massage tailoring the massage based on our discussion. He is very talented identifying areas of the body that need special attention using his techniques on those areas along with my entire body. I’ve completed multiple massages with Cesar and amazed each time how each massage experience with him makes me feel amazing which, lasts for days after. I look forward to future massages with Cesar and would recommend him to anyone that is interested in a professional massage experience.

I texted Cesar about his availability and he responded within the hour. The dedicated massage room in his home is nicely appointed with a serene zen feeling. The massage was soothing yet firm, Cesar continually checked in with me to see how the pressure was. His massage technique was incredible and I left feeling brand new. The trick is to see if the massage was really as good as I remembered is to be is to schedule a second massage to see if it is as good as the first, it was better!! Cesar is very personable and kind, he was understanding and I felt it was a judgment free zone. I have had several massages with Cesar and NO disappointments!! Jerry

Going to see Cesar, was like going to a spa. The room was beautifully decorated and peaceful. Communication with Cesar was professional and timely. The massage itself was excellent. He has a great technique. Do yourself a favor and make an appointment. He is a great guy and you will feel much better afterwards! I will be booking again soon.
