I am a Los Angeles-based Massage Therapist with over twenty years of experience serving the Gay/LGBT community as a non-discriminatory practioner. I am vaccinated for COVID-19 and Monkey Pox.

I practice Watsu in an Outdoor Spa followed by a full body therapeutic Deep Swedish Sports Massage. I combine intuitive deep Swedish strokes, stretching, and reflexology, and end with a sound bath Reiki healing to rebalance your mind, body, and spirit.

Each ninety-minute or two-hour session starts out in a... private outdoor saltwater jacuzzi spa in a zen garden for up to thirty minutes of healing Watsu water therapy to warm your muscles up and eliminate stress before the massage session.

Please arrive showered with no products on. Clients are welcome to take a rinse before use of the jacuzzi. The spa temperature is set between 96 - 101 degrees. The shower is also available after the session.

A sixty-minute massage is available without spa time.

I am located in Carthay Circle in the heart of Los Angeles near Beverly Hills and just south of West Hollywood just north of Olympic Blvd. between La Cienega and Crescent Heights. Easy-to-find driveway parking is provided in this beautiful safe neighborhood.

Brian creates an experience beyond a standard massage. By bookending the massage with Watsu and a sound bath, it’s a three-for-one treatment that took me to a deep sense of calm and clarity. It’s honestly both a transformational physical and spiritual experience. If you’ve not tried Watsu before, it’s immersive, sensory, and hypnotic. If you are looking for a calming, transformative experience that will leave you profoundly relaxed and clear, Brian is the guy for you. He has a heart of gold and gifted hands.

From the moment the gate opened, I knew I had made the right choice to book a massage with Brian. He had a beautiful branch of sage burning in his hand and walked me back to his studio. The location is easy to find and you can park in the driveway. His space is tranquil and peaceful. It feels like a five-star spa. The time in the water was amazing and he did a guided meditation with me to allow me to relax and unwind. If you are unsure about booking the 90-minute treatment - you should 100% go for it.

He guides you around the spa, along the waterfall, and does gentle stretching. I could have been done then, I was so relaxed. The massage however was worth the wait. Again, he created a space that made my mind body, and soul feel loved and relaxed. He is amazing with his hands and uses oils that have a wonderful smell. It was a sunny day, so all the doors were open and there was a gentle breeze and the sounds of the wind chimes in the background.

At the end of the session, there was a sound bath - which I love. I left feeling like all my troubles were gone and my mind was at peace.

As you can tell, I highly recommend Brian as a therapist and all-around beautiful person. :)

After reading all of his reviews, I’m not sure how how much more I can say that has not already been said.

Brian welcomed me into his home not as a client, but as a guest. He took time to get to know me, understand my needs, and make me feel comfortable.

His massage techniques and experience are truly one of a kind. He asked me to give up control and to trust him, which is exactly what I did and had a truly amazing experience. I walked away not only having my body renewed but also my mind and my psyche.

I will definitely be going back to see Brian on a regular basis and suggest that you reach out to him as well.

Nirvana and Heaven on Earth paradise here in LA?? Brian is your Zen Healing God! I get a LOT of massages here - this was a beautiful and tranquil experience. Completely easy to text and chat on the phone with. Driveway parking in a beautiful neighborhood. Nicest friendliest guy. Ok, you get in his backyard and it truly is a sanctuary. CHOOSE the watsu hot tub therapy and if you can swing it a 90 min massage after. Worth every Penny! Brian has such a relaxing private backyard. The hot tub is actually like a plunge pool - biggest I have ever seen. He lets you soak in there - such warm water and hot jets. Perfect to relax you. He then joins you later - this is legit fellas - Google watsu. Imagine just literally floating and being held and almost like a baptism but not dunked. I’ve never done a sensory tank but it felt like that might feel. Truly floating. Warmth. Almost like being held by your mom as a baby. Legit, again, fellas. Beautiful and emotional and so relaxing. Give in and let him maneuver you - it is like cirque do soleil in the water. Then dry off and get on his super massage table, and a wonderful massage studio. Doors can open out for fresh air. We both opted for masks but i felt safe regardless. He’s got those muscular strong hands and arms and elbows that you just WANT in a therapist, but he also works from his heart and soul and he is so super relaxing gliding up and down. He focused on my back and leg pain but still made me feel amazing all over. Love his coconut oil and how it feels In my skin. Truly relaxed and zoned out and blissed and just felt so wonderful. Then a sound bath. Such varying different sounds that put me in an other worldly zone. Then a wonderful chat with my new Healer. He really is a Healer - comes by it naturally and peacefully and soulfully and very focused on it. He’s lived a lot of life and has learned from it all and had many amazing experiences. But in that moment he is there to serve and honor you. Truly therapeutic and legit and other worldly and wowww and ah-mazing. Can’t wait to go back. Much needed and rewarded in this crazy omicron time. Book with Brian today and get zen!
