What sets me apart? I’ve studied craniosacral and a Taoist form of abdominal massage called Chi Nei Tsang which help me converse directly with your nervous system facilitating an unwinding there. For the first half of the massage we work out all of the knots and the second half my clients often enter into a dream-like state and report a floating sense of non-linear time. I’ve been bodyworking since 2011 and consider it a passion and a calling....

Many of my clients are fellow massage therapists, dancers and yoga teachers. All people who use their bodies and value practitioners vested in their art and are serious about quality.

The studio is a warm safe place with a heated table and space to be you. I'm from the south so good hospitality and an innate ability for biscuits and gravy making are second nature.

I recently had an outstanding massage experience with Austin, and I can confidently say that his expertise and skill set left a lasting impression. From the moment I stepped into his studio, Austin created a welcoming and tranquil environment that set the tone for relaxation. His knowledge of various massage techniques was evident as he skillfully addressed specific areas of tension, providing a therapeutic touch that alleviated muscle tightness and promoted overall relaxation. Austin's ability to intuitively adapt the massage to my needs showcased his dedication to personalized care, making the session both effective and enjoyable.

Beyond his technical proficiency, Austin's professionalism and warm demeanor contributed to a positive and comfortable atmosphere. He took the time to understand my preferences and any concerns I had, ensuring a tailored experience. Austin's passion for his craft and genuine commitment to his clients make him an exceptional massage therapist. I highly recommend Austin to anyone seeking a skilled professional who combines expertise with a welcoming and client-focused approach, creating a truly rejuvenating experience.

I'm was in town with a traveling Broadway performance group and lucked upon Austin's bodywork practice and it was hands down the best massage I've ever had. And I travel all over the united states with the show. He listened with his whole person to my needs and, more importantly, he responded with his whole person to those needs. This man is a talented healer and I wish I could take him on the road with me!

My time and money are very limited; however, a bodywork session with Austin is an investment in my wellbeing. He is so unique. Sometimes it feels like he has an extra set of hands. And his energy is so chill, grounding and on-point. I leave feeling way better than when I arrived.

Austin's massage training is very, very unique. I've had all kinds of bodywork done all over the world and his approach is quite remarkable. He incorporated so many traditions (Thai, acupressure, sports stretching, deep tissue, etc.) that my body feels like its had a workout and a day at the spa simultaneously. Beyond technique and skill the man has compassion for days and held me in a wonderful healing space for 90 minutes (I wish I would have booked a 2hr!)

There aren't words to effectively describe Austin's exceptional talent for understanding and bodyworking with the body. His care for his clients' wellbeing is something to note. He is a rare gem! Have him massage your jaw. Amazing how much energy we store in our jaw, and how under serviced this are is! Enjoy and heal!

I've had many sessions from Austin over the years and have sampled many styles of bodywork. The magic he works is beyond anything else I've tried. I am a bodyworker myself and am very selective of who I have work on me and he always far exceeds my standards. With strong hands and attentive intuitive energy, he moves in and out of deep tissue, structural work with to profoundly transcendental energy work. Whenever I'm on his table I slip in and out of dream states and when I leave, both my body and my mental/spiritual self are humming harmoniously. He is by far my preferred bodyworker! Do yourself a favor and let this wonderful practitioner help relieve your pain and give you a powerful realignment.

One of the best massage therapists in New Mexico! Highly intuitive style coupled with anatomical knowledge pouring through solid strokes. Austin can be beyond intense or placidly gentle. His love for his trade emanates warmly through his human tools; leaving you realigned, stretched, refreshed, and ready to live your life. I've never had a massage quite like this before. I'll predict I'll be driving to ABQ from Santa Fe to see him many more times in the not so distant future.

Austin is a truly exceptional practitioner! He has has a thorough understanding of the body and a gentle intuition of how to take care of an individual. He combines these traits into an amazing massage treatment that relaxes the mind and takes physical tension out of my body. I would recommend Austin to anyone looking for not only a fantastic massage but also for a blissful experience.

Wow!!! I am so impressed with Austin's bodywork. I am an athlete and personal trainer so I work my body hard! Austin was very knowledgable and knew exactly what my body needed. I have a few problem areas and he was able to free me up and give my body the relief I need through the massage. I also use him for my clients that I feel need bodywork. He is that good!!!

Austin suggested certain exercises that I could work on in between sessions to help with my chronic problems. I felt really comfortable and well taken care of.

His private studio is calm and well appointed...a place where you can truly relax. The heated table is such a bonus.

Thanks again Austin for the great work you do!

Austin has a sensitivity and intuition that can calm a wild beast. I have known Austin for years and have seen him grow as a therapeutic practitioner. He continues to learn and study to deepen his skill so he can be of better service to his clients. I am a local CMT and have a full practice. When I have a client that needs some help and someone to take care of them when I cannot, Austin is at the top of my list to refer to. I also do regular massage trades with him to keep me in tip top shape. I trust him with my body and with those I hold dear. He just recently studied with my bodywork teacher Dr. Fred Mitouer and impressed even him with his sincerity, his depth of authenticity and ability to absorb new information while adapting applying it at the same time. So with all this being said, it is obvious that I recommend Austin for any of your healing needs. Make an appointment now, I am sure his schedule will only get more full as time goes on.

Austin is without a doubt one of the very best massage therapists in Albuquerque. He dazzles with creative techniques and surprising signature moves; in a session with him, his obviously studied skills soothe me gracefully.

Sept. 12, 2018 in San Francisco, CA (in-studio)

I absolutely love each and every session with Austin. I highly recommend his work. I feel better each time, and I can't help but keep coming back! Combining elements you'd be familiar with, along with techniques from different disciplines, Austin's massages leave you feeling rejuvenated and relaxed.

As someone who works out 5-6 days a week, these workouts always put me back on my feet and leave me feeling healthy and recovered!

Thanks Austin!

Austin has excellent massage echnique with careful and precise attention to areas that needed work. Plus he exudes this gentle and easygoing aura which makes you feel comfortable and at home.

I've been going to Austin for many years now. I'm an athlete and need regular and experienced massages for my sore muscles. I've been fortunate to have experienced several masseuses but Austin stands out as one of the best!

Although I don't live in San Francisco, I visit often and he is the only masseuse I've used (and want to use). His technique is spot on, with a intuitive touch that you really can't teach in school.

He's a gifted masseuse and you owe it to yourself to experience his talent at least once.

His online scheduling is a great benefit - assuming you can get a booking (i.e. reserve in advance). Thank you Austin!!

Austin in awesome!! As a CMT myself, I've been looking for a therapist I can go to on a regular basis and have been trying out a lot of guys, and Austin is my new man. He has an amazing sense of touch that combines intuition, skilled technique and lots of "damn that feels great!" work. It's hard to find somebody with just the right balance between a session that both feels great while receiving AND feels beneficial to the body in the days following, and Austin delivers both. Great work!

Feb. 03, 2015 in San Francisco, CA (in-studio)

Yet another hypnotizing massage from Austin who continues to amaze me with his knowledge at what he does and the ability to perform at topnotch level. He's the most non-judgmental therapist you'll find, so genuinely caring. My back gets better each time, his technique is so superior. See you again soon Austin!
