I heard Artem was good, but I didn’t know how good! Being a massage therapist myself, I am picky on my masseurs and Artem did more than meet my expectations! He is thorough, attentive, healing, as well as strong and intentional in his massage! It’s one of the better ones I have had in a long time and I highly reccomend him! He knows how to let you relax but also gets in all the places that need work! Thanks Artem! I WILL be back!

Hi Artem,

Thank you, thank you, thank you!! I’m really feeling much better after what I hope will the the first of many sessions!

Let me just first say wow, full stop. My experience with Art was so much more than I had expected. I don’t often go for massage as I have a fairly busy schedule, but I’m so glad I reached out to him!

I’d been dealing with sporadic back pain — sometimes lower back, sometimes shoulders — and knew it was time to see a skilled masseur. It didn’t hurt that Art is very easy on the eyes (smile).

From the time I first contacted him Art was nothing but professional, courteous, and organized. The studio is in a doorman building on a very safe street and was very well kept and clean. Art really went the extra mile to create a soothing and relaxing atmosphere, from subdued lighting to ambient music and aromatherapy during the massage. I really liked that he seemed to take his cues on talking from me, and as I prefer a silent massage to help relax. At the same time, he was very engaging to chat with both before and after, so I expect he would be happy to chat during the massage if that is your preference.

The massage itself was very professional and effective, and I was glad Art recommended the 90-minute session. That was just enough time for him to get everywhere he needed to, including the tense muscles around and under my shoulder blades. He obviously knows his way around different muscle groups, quickly zeroing in on the problem spots. I’ll definitely be scheduling follow-up sessions with him!
