I’ve had many, and varies styles, of massage in my life and I can say without doubt or hesitation that Ross is simply the best. I scheduled a 90 minute massage (that extended beyond my original appointment time). He welcomed me into his home, showed me to his dedicated massage room and asked if I had problem areas of concern or any questions before starting. Ross is a tall, strong man whose big hands can cover a lot of ground, which is great, but it was his focus on small areas in need of special attention that impressed me most. Skill, training, dedication, he has it all. And to top it off, he has a very upbeat, gregarious personality that made me feel incredibly welcome. Thanks Ross, you really are the best!

Best massage in Chicago!!! My back hasn’t felt this good in a long time. I’ll be scheduling soon and will be making this a regular thing. My body needs it. Thank you!

Thank you for the best massage of my life! I feel so much better and I’m definitely making this a monthly thing.

I received a 60 minute deep tissue massage from Ross and should have made it a 90 minute. This was one of the best massages of my life and didn’t want it to end. He was able to work out all the knots in my back from sitting at my desk all day and was even able to find spots in my lower back that have been bothering me for a long time. Already booked my next appointment and I can’t wait!! Thanks, Ross!!!

Such positive energy and a great guy. Plus he knows what he’s doing. I like a lot of pressure but I have a couple injuries that I was worried about. Sometimes you feel like it’s too much or too little after a massage. Ross talked through all my problem areas and knew exactly what to work on hard and where to help me heal. Great!!

Had my first and definitely not last, massage with Ross today. Finally, someone that gives the deep pressure I prefer. Not only is he a nice guy, he knows how to find the tight spots that you didn’t even know needed to be worked on. Highly recommend!

The weight of your hands and pressure throughout the entire massage is exactly what I’m looking for. My lower back has never felt better! I’ll be back soon!
Thank you

Hands down, the best massage of my life! Not only was he able to find all my knots and work them out, but also made me melt on the table. I’m always hesitant with new therapists since I’m a body builder and need someone to give me a lot of pressure, but this guy can give all you need and then some. So happy to have found my new go to therapist in Chicago! Thanks Ross!!

I just had my second massage by Ross, and already cannot wait for the third! Ross truly listens and pays attention to my needs. His strong, yet soothing, hands provides for just the right combination of healing and relaxation. He knew just the right spots to hit even without me having to tell him.
Besides his great touch, he complements that with an equally impressive personality and conversation. If you’re looking for a go-to masseur in the Chicago area, look no further!

Ross gives the best massage and is all around a great dude. This was my third or fourth time, and I am still surprised how good you feel the next day. I’ll be coming back regularly!
