Overview

Welcome and thanks for checking out my page.

I invite you to an incredible body therapy session from one of the best massage therapist you’ll meet in Santa Monica hands down. That is if you are in the area of course and looking for one. Over the years I’ve created a custom style for my body work session and my techniques and skills are phenomenal.

In addition to my regular massage therapy I am a personal trainer with... 10 plus years behind me critically figuring out, studying and working with these machines we refer to as our body.

As I start on your back you will notice me performing Lomi Lomi, Thai, and Swedish. I mix sports massage with a beautiful therapeutic touch, catering to the muscles and joints as needed. The combo of technique flow so naturally along the body with such rhythmic strokes to the sounds and beats of the lofi, natural, or zen music sounds.

It’s easiest to schedule with me via text. I believe in discretion so privacy is standard.Within a few responses we should easily be able to get something.

Gay, straight, or lesbian, Id love for you to experience an unbelievable massage from an unbelievable massage therapist.

Looking forward to booking with you.

Testimonials

Gathered by James from admiring massage clients to share with you.

The massage was amazing! On top of that he was very professional. I would definitely recommend and definitely will be returning. Thanks James!

Recently, I had my first massage from James, and I did not expect the exceptional level of comfort he gave to me. I could discern that James is well-grounded, easy to speak to, and he developed a natural pace and transition to the massage.
Whether there were periods of silence with my focus on his massage or the casual chat as he transitioned his work, the flow was natural. James clearly adapts well to his client.
In my career, I know people buy from those they like. James left me feeling great, and I believe I made a new friend in those 90 minutes. You will too.

James graciously accommodated my request for a same day massage appointment. His place is clean and pleasant. James has a gorgeous energy, and impeccable physical body as well. He is strong and intuitive and knows exactly how to provide deep relaxation. I tend to be socially awkward and it takes time for me to relax with a new person, but James was able to get me to feel totally relaxed and supported throughout the visit. He has a perfect mix of comfortable and stimulating conversation and relaxing silence. He provided great fitness and health advice and draws from a deep well of body work knowledge. The 90 minutes literally flew by and I left feeling completely relaxed and yet energized. I wish I could meet with him weekly.

Spend an hour with James and be transported to luxury. Recently booked an appointment for a one hour massage. The space was clean and accommodating. James is an energizing masseur, adept with his hands, and knows the male body very well. He is every bit as good looking as his photos (even better) and his smile is enchanting. I will definitely be back for a repeat visit. 5 stars all the way!

Phenomenal massage experience!
I was able to reach James and schedule an appointment same day, which is a treat in itself. He provided clear instructions on how to find his place. Parking was easy, which is always a win in LA. Upon arriving, I was greeted with great energy, a relaxing atmosphere, and an extra clean environment. He was handsome and kind. We chatted about any areas I wanted him to focus on. It was the perfect way to spend a day off. He has a great personality and knowledge on how to better stretch, remain agile, and gentle with your body. I'm grateful to have come across James, my new go to masseur!

The massage was really wonderful. James has a very calming energy and the clean, professional environment was welcoming. He is a gifted healer. Being a personal trainer, he has a very clear sense of the body and was able to provide a deep tissue massage that really helped me with flexibility and with my posture. I would highly recommend him to anyone that wants a thorough massage that is also relaxing.

5 stars!

Met James when he was in San Diego at his hotel. Booking was quick and easy and the hotel setup and ambience were clean, comfortable and relaxing. James exudes such a caring, friendly manner--following up with an exceptional technique. He checked in about pressure and made sure to adjust his massage to what I needed---and he intuited much of that; working out stubborn knots and leaving my back, neck, hips all feeling like new. The easy offhand manner he has with his powerful body was amazing. A killer smile, a warm laugh, stellar conversation and equally stellar silence---I can't wait to see him again.

I have seen James many times, and he is fantastic.

Great personality, always in a good mood. Great hands, great technique. Very unique style, adding in sports stretching into the massage. Am never disappointed after a session with him, always worth the money.

He’s also a personal trainer, and gives some great tips on doing things to keep your body healthy.

Highly recommend, you can’t really go wrong with him.
