Overview

Please read this CAREFULLY: I’m a caring British masseur offering THERAPEUTIC massages in Glendale with 35 years experience. I combine Reiki healing with the massage. I offer just Reiki if you'd like help with non-physical issues, like anxiety, stress, grief, etc.

Please note that I am only offering THERAPEUTIC massages and Reiki, no ‘extras’. Also, new clients: PLEASE SEND YOUR NAME & a photo when FIRST contacting me. 🙏

My massages are influenced by my experience as a yoga teacher... and dancer. I’ve developed a few of my own unique techniques for releasing neck and shoulder pain and stiffness. In most cases I can usually dramatically increase your mobility and range of motion in one session.

In addition to my 33 years of massage experience:
I’m a regular facilitator at the world renowned Skyros Centre in Greece.
I taught yoga and dance at the London Central YMCA for 14 years.
I taught yoga at the prestigious Reebok Club for 10 years.
I led both a men's discussion group and guided meditation sessions for the LGBT charity, Kairos in Soho.

My goal is to ensure you leave feeling calm, restored & able to face the world with a smile. I look forward to meeting you.

I look forward to helping you! All the best, Raymond

Every time I’m in LA I make sure I book an appointment with Raymond. I travel internationally and he literally gives me one of the best massages I’ve ever had in any of the countries I’ve been to. So good. He really knows what he’s doing, he’s got great hands, he’s professional, kind. His in house studio space is calming & his music is perfect. I recommend you book 90 mins because it goes by so quickly.

“Thanks Raymond. You were incredible. You worked really hard and hit all the right points which I appreciated. And I didn’t even have to leave the comfort of my own home. I haven’t felt this good in years. Literally. If I could afford to have a massage regularly I’d see you every week. Or even more often. I’ll be back for sure. Thanks again. Ben”

I’ve been getting massages from Raymond for a few years, whenever I feel stressed or anxious or when my body needs some care. I don’t see him as often as I should and every time I go back I wonder why I waited so long. I kind of forget how good he is and then I go back and I’m reminded how consistently good he is. He doesn’t waste time talking before he starts so I never feel like he’s short changing me. I always get the full time I’m paying for and never feel rushed. I probably shouldn’t say this but compared to what other masseurs charge for way less satisfying massages and less experienced hands, Raymond should be charging a lot more. If you can afford it, make sure you book 90 minutes because 60 minutes goes by way too fast. His massage space is clean and welcoming and his music is well suited to the massage experience.

I was a massage therapist for 18 years (CMT) & Raymond is the man I go to when I need my knots, aches and pains sorted out. I’ve gone to lots of other masseurs in LA and Raymond is the only one I keep going back to.

He’s incredibly gifted. Strong healing hands, an awesome intuitive touch, great music & a beautiful clean space. I also really appreciate that when I book a 90 minute massage he gives me 90 minutes of actual massage, not 10 minutes of talking at the beginning and the end so that you lose 20 minutes. Great value for money and worth every dime. I always leave feeling amazing.

October 2022

Not all masseurs are equally good. After 2 months of suffering from sciatica Pain , Raymond helped me to recover very quickly. His professional service of deep tissue massage (physical) in combination with Rekei treatment (mental/energy) at the end was amazing. I felt receiving benefit of two treatments for the price of one, that my physical pain was related to stress as well as body misalignment. I am very grateful for his talent in helping my body to heal naturally and quickly without medication.

I feel honored to write a testimony for you. Thank you again for yet another GREAT massage today. A massage from you feels a bit like a dance; as your hands move across my body it seems like you're doing well-executed choreography and know exactly what you're doing. Truly you give the best massage I've ever had which is why I keep coming back and referring others to you. I also appreciate the fact that you provide a consistent service but also tailor your massages to my specific needs each time.

Raymond, I have to thank you again for yesterday’s massage. I’ve had a lot of massages in my life & you have superior skills! I can’t wait to return for another excellent session. Your execution was totally above & beyond expectations and I’m still feeling great a day later. You obviously know a lot about human anatomy, you managed to get rid of most of my knots sir! It was also great to come into a clean & calming space. Your studio is real nice. Have a great day!

I had an amazing massage with Raymond. He was polite, professional and immediately put me at ease. The massage was easily the best I’ve had in a long time – his hands knew intuitively where there was tension in my neck, shoulders and lower back, and expertly applied the right amount of pressure to loosen up my knots. Will definitely be going back to him. A+++

June 25, 2021 in Glendale, CA (in-studio)

A massage with Raymond is a great experience. His intuition for how much pressure to apply and which type of movement to use is excellent. His studio is clean and welcoming. His table is comfortable. His musical selection is spot-on. And the parking is easy. I highly recommend booking a session with him.
