Paul stands out because he genuinely get it - creating a vibe that's welcoming, making every session feel like a bespoke experience. He's the kind of pro who brings both skill and soul to his work, blending professionalism with a cool, friendly ease that makes you look forward to every visit. It doesn't hurt that he's very handsome. After a session with Paul, you don't just walk out feeling physically rejuvenated; you're in a better headspace too, fully zen and totally uplifted. For anyone on the hunt for not just a massage, but a full-on experience, Paul's your guy. Top recommendation, no question.

This review is overdue and I promised Paul I would write this for him! I have been getting regular massage sessions from Paul for almost 7 years, since he moved to LA from SF. I usually see him about once a month for a 90 min full body massage. Sometimes he comes to my house, as I own a massage table, or I will visit him at his space too. Paul has proven to me, over and over, to be without a doubt the best massage therapist I have encountered, which is why I have had dozens of massages from him. I have an extremely busy schedule between NY and LA, and an athlete - cyclist and long distance runner - and will often book in advance with him to insure my time. Paul is highly educated, fully trained, and years of experience, which proves he is a master of bodywork. The work is highly intuitive, deeply thorough, but also blissfully relaxing. I have always trusted his kind energy, calm demeanor, and grounded personality. We often will check in and catch up before our sessions, but once we get started, it is all about the instinctive exchange and I always feel like a renewed person afterwards. Yes, I have seen other therapists over the years, but always return to Paul, as he is quite simply the best. Hands on and hands down!

Finally got to see Paul again! Have been seeing him regularly for awhile in LA and I travel a lot for work, so often need to find other therapists and I'm usually disappointed, as they don't know massage or are not trained. I love coming back to LA, as Paul is always my regular therapist. He always delivers. I am an avid runner and Paul, puts me back together for my training schedule. Not only does he excel at his techniques and craft, tailored for my body, but he is one of the kindest souls I know. His massage and bodywork is really the best that I've ever had. Stop looking and just text him and you'll experience what I mean here! Thanks, as always, Paul!

Paul is easily the best massage therapist I've ever had. You read this kind of review often, but as a trained massage therapist myself, I am incredibly picky. I have had massages all over the world, and yet I ALWAYS come back to Paul. No one compares to his level of skill and experience, intuitive touch, and the quality service he provides. He is very professional, friendly, and kind and makes sure you leave his table completely satisfied. I have had over 11+ massages from Paul over the years and I have never left disappointed. If you want a massage that combines actual genuine massage skills with a satisfying component, look no further. I can honestly say he's given me the best massage I've ever had, hands down.

I've recently seen Paul for another great massage session in LA - finally! He was my regular therapist in San Francisco for over 7 years, first at a popular spa he worked for, then in his private practice. I occasionally travel to LA for business and always book a massage. I am an avid marathon runner and over the years have seen Paul for body maintenance and therapy to keep in top shape. He is really the best therapist I have experienced. Well trained, intuitive, professional, and has great energy. I have had countless massage in my lifetime and would honestly say, Paul is the really the only therapist I know will deliver a session that is paralleled to none. Do yourself a great favor and book your massage with him. He is kind, friendly, and also offers a great blend of therapeutic with relaxation techniques.

OMG! Paul is the ultimate masseur! From start to finish, Paul is professional, accommodating, clear in his intention and communication. His place is clean, well appointed and easy to find. His demeanor is welcoming and friendly to put you at ease. He genuinely cares about you getting what you need from the session. Technically, his massage is superior, finding and focusing on the problem areas without causing pain or discomfort while still being thorough on my full body. I asked for deep tissue and boy did he deliver. Paul also worked the connective tissue and joints, which many therapist neglect.
He generous and extremely talented. I have found my new regular therapist. Thank you Paul!

I have seen Paul twice now and he is always professional, friendly, and his hands probably are some of the best massages I’ve had. His space is clean and comfortable. He has a very intuitive touch and always knows the exact amount of pressure to use. You can tell his knowledge, experience, and skill is channeled into your body. See him- 100% worth every penny.

The entire experience, from my initial contact with Paul, through to the end of the massage itself, was totally amazing. The man is professional, kind and extremely skilled. I was able to set up a same-day appointment (although I know this may no always be possible because this guy has client!); the parking was surprising easy, easy building access, great atmosphere and ambiance inside his unit and a professional, heated and very comfortable massage table.
He asked questions as to my reason for seeking massage, questions about firmness, any injuries - all that stuff. I felt like I was in the hands of someone who not only knew his stuff, but was genuinely interested in me as a client.
The massage itself was an awesome experience to say the least, and I'd like to turn this into as much of a habit as my budget can afford - because the long term health benefits from receiving regular massage will virtually certainly outweigh the expense today. I've read a lot about the great effects massage has on your physical and mental health; and based upon how I feel today - I am fast becoming a believer.

If you are looking for an integrative bodywork experience, Paul is the one. I have been receiving massages for years and none of them compare to Paul, from whom I have been seeing for over 4 years. Each massage leaves me feeling restored and you will be surrounded by care, as his work is crafted to your body with dedication and experience. He knows different modalities and can adapt his approach to create harmony into every session. He is mindfully present with you, feeling the muscles, going slow with the breath, creating the proper approach to deep tissue to free it from tightness. All this will allow to achieve a long lasting relaxed state. In addition to his expertise in massage, he has a warm and welcoming energy that is easy to connect with that relaxes the body, mind, and spirit. Highly recommend you see Paul, now!

Just finished my first massage appointment with Paul and I am so happy that I have found a talented, new masseur. It has been a few years since I've found someone as talented a my previous masseur, who I worked with for six years. Paul was professional, intuitive and sensitive to my needs and concerns. He has great hands, is strong and works very slowly and deliberately. I feel great....and am so tired, I went directly home and jumped into bed. I feel like I just had a great workout! Believe me, I'll be back! Soon!

Paul was prompt and responsive setting up my session. It was a therapeutic massage and he was very adept at working the knots and pressure points. Not rushed and very relaxing. Heated table and warm towels at the end. He didn't talk and the music was calming, with a great scented candle - just what I needed. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend him if you are in town and need a massage.

I've been getting massages from Paul now for over 2 years and this guy is one of the best. He clearly knows his stuff and the massages are always technically great. However, what sets Paul apart from other masseurs I've tried here and there (and always come back to Paul for) is that he's a genuinely nice guy who's invested in his clients and connects with them every time. I've gone to Paul to get a rubdown post-workout when I've pushed myself hard but also some crazy stressful weeks just to get an session to refocus and reset. This guy never fails to put a smile on my face. Book him! :)

Feb. 27, 2016 in San Francisco, CA (in-studio)

This is the best massage I have had in years! Nice setting and he made me feel better than I have in a very long time. Paul is exceptional in every way and exceeded all expectations! I will definitely be back!
