A massage experience like no other awaits you. It's time to allow my skills, experience and personal touch take you to an entirely different level of pure massage bliss.

Allow yourself to feel the flow of energy as it leave my hands and enters your body soothing every aching muscle and calming every nerve.

Even though we are all similarly trained, every massage therapist is different in their craft. I am no exception. I ask that you let my... years of experience, my professional training, and my intuitive hands guide you into a relaxed state where I rejuvenate your entire body leaving you feeling refreshed and energized. You owe it to yourself to experience my touch at least once.

My studio is located in the heart of Pinellas county in Largo, FL and is easily accessible from both Clearwater and Tampa airports.
I am a veteran of the U.S. Army and proud to be a member of and to serve the LGBT community.

I am a Florida licensed massage therapist and my private practice, Massage For Better Living, llc is a Florida licensed massage establishment.

Everyone is welcome at my studio and I try to keep my prices affordable so that all may experience the benefits of massage.

Gratuities are never expected but always appreciated.

Hey Chris! I just wanted to thank you for a great massage! I feel a lot better both physically and mentally. I'd like to come back next week sometime if that would be okay. - Craig

Chris at Massage for Better Living is the best massage therapist I have ever found. Chris is truly intuitive in finding areas where I experience daily pain and discomfort. I have gone to Chiropractors for years that have not given me the relief from back and neck pain as Chris does. This is not just relief for a few hours or days it lasts between appointments. I highly recommend Chris to anyone who needs a real massage you will not regret the decision.

First off, Chris responded with an appointment very quickly. This massage was the best experience possible. From the choices of oil to the perfect pressure, I left pain free and my stress just faded away. Chris is very professional and clean - can't recommend him enough! Looking forward to my next visit. He also sets a very calming atmosphere and is a super,nice guy. 10/10
