Hi, my name is Michael. I am a massage therapist in San Diego with over 20 years’ experience. I provide a blend of multiple modalities such as Deep Tissue, Sports, and Swedish massage along with assisted stretching to create a well-rounded approach to your session.

My experience allows me to customize each massage to my client. I am proud to serve the gay, bi, and straight male community with men of all ages/body types. I specialize in athletes, body... builders, and triathletes but also welcome those who have a more sedentary schedule. Couples are welcome - will receive a discount off $15.00 each if appointments are schedule and completed at the same time.

My goal is to ensure that my massage techniques relieve any knots or pains, but also achieve a state of complete relaxation. I adjust to your desired pressure throughout the massage.

Please be sure that you are open with your medical history, any injuries, and any recent infections. Last minute reschedules will be accepted if not feeling well.

Please make sure that you are showered for the massage prior to my arrival. I have the right to refuse service if hygiene is not practiced.

Michael was incredible! He was able to get rid of my migraine and back pain in one session! He was so cordial and professional, made me feel at ease and checked in with me throughout my massage to make sure the pressure was correct. 100% recommended! Will be scheduling another massage in the near future.

I have been getting massages for about twenty years, and tend to stick with someone once I connect, often for years. Because my former therapist is no longer in practice, I had to seek out someone new which can always be harrowing. After one session with Michael, I know I have found my new guy. I had a therapeutic deep tissue massage for two hours, and it was on par with some of the best I have had over the years! I booked about a week in advance, and Michael was a great communicator on the front end regarding the scheduling, logistics and details, as well as setting expectations and providing clarity. The morning of the massage I got a final confirmation, too. That afternoon Michael was on time, ready to go, and really listened once we were in person. I have had some really good deep tissue work over the years, which really helps my stress and addresses tension, and Michael was able to truly tune in, follow the energy, and then also check in verbally to ensure his read was right. He also did a significant amount of stretching throughout, which always helps. He finished on my back, neck and shoulders, as this is where I hold so much of the tension in my body. It was great, and I can't wait to see him again. I have already booked my next appointment!
