I'm Charley! NYC is home. Travel 4 days out of the week for work . Open to all races, genders, and sexual orientations.
Tapping into my Polynesian heritage- FAI’TO’O which is a Tongan body healing massage. Otherwise known as Lomi Lomi in Hawaiian culture. This massage is a combination of the Japanese Zen Shiatsu with the Tongan Lomi Lomi.
My massage focuses on connecting the sino, atamai, and laumalie in harmonious alignment. ( body, mind, and soul...) As Tongans would say, “Oku ou ongo’i lelei mo nonga”… translation, I feel good and in peace. I have implemented techniques from other modalities into my personal Lomi.

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

He's very welcoming and comfortable to be with. The massage with Charlie was mostly to help me relax and to relieve some tightness in my shoulders and lower back and he delivered a incredibly relaxing Lomi Lomi massage. I'll definitely look forward to another appointment with him, and you won't be disappointed if you book with him today!

I recently spent 90 minutes with Charlie for a massage. His approach is different that most of my past massage experiences. His "flow" with movements was a big upgrade from those past massages. I knew I wanted a long massage. I thought 90 minutes would be good, but it was great. I could easily see enjoying a two hour massage with Charlie the next time he is in my area. Highly recommended!!

I live an hour and 20 minutes away from Charley by train, but I've happily made the trip twice now and it is well worth it. When I first sought his services a couple of months ago I was dealing with some ongoing tension and stress related to a new move, a new job and some degree of post-2020 PTSD. After that wonderful massage I felt better physically and mentally than I had in months. After my second session with him I know I will continue to be a repeat client. Charley's talent is unique and unlimited. He truly has the hands of a healer, as well as being a beautiful person inside and out. I am an older man (60) with an average body, but Charley makes me feel completely at ease and not at all self-conscious. My new job is quite physical with standing most of the day and working intensely with my hands. He listens to me carefully and attends to all my areas of concern. Through his techniques he has found areas of stress and pain in my body I didn't even know I had, and after he works them out I feel like a new person. I look forward to future sessions and enjoying his gentle conversations, the aromas of exotic oils, the sounds of nature and his magical touch. I offer my most enthusiastic recommendation.

I just had my first massage with Charley and it was awesome! He followed up my text request right away, and we were able to agree on a day and time.

From the beginning of the massage, Charley sensed what I needed. He used exactly the right pressure, and by the end, I was feeling very relaxed. You should take advantage of Charley’s great hands whenever he visits your city. You won’t be disappointed!

Despite my initial reluctance to schedule a massage online, as soon as I contacted Charley, my concerns were swept away. His profile is spot on, except for the fact that he's even more attractive in person. His heritage shines through, with a calming presence, a welcoming personality, and a fantastic smile. Before we began, Charley checked about any problem areas, and once we got started, his skills carried me away to a different place. I melted under his strong, yet sensitive touch and he checked continually to make sure the pressure was ok. I could've fallen asleep but I didn't want to miss out on our quiet conversation or on the chance to admire this gorgeous man as much as I could. I feel lucky that I took a chance and met a great masseur who I will try to see every time he's in my area or I'm in his. I highly recommend Charley...don't miss your chance. You'll be totally relieved of stress, tightness and any sore spots, and you'll walk away totally satisfied! 5 stars isn't a high enough rating!
