In business since 1992...I offer a 2-hour or 90-minute quality, intuitive, LEGIT, combination of Deep Tissue/Pressure Point/Swedish massage for men, both gay and straight. I'm available early evening and late evening hours.

The massage has Chinese and Thai influence, with a moderate amount of stretching. I use an Earthlite massage table (with face cradle) and Biotone Massage Cream.

The sessions are therapeutic, nurturing and relaxing...and in a quiet, soothing atmosphere at 43rd Street & 9th Avenue.... Doorman/elevator building.

Moderate pressure, deep pressure, or extra deep pressure are offered. I adapt the pressure to fit each client.

My detailed, relaxed-pace massage includes: back, shoulders, neck, glutes, legs, feet, chest & stomach, arms & hands, face & scalp.

Calls or texts will get a quicker response than e-mailing. Thanks.

Better then two Percocet! What a wonderful experience! And, yes, a massage with Sam IS an experience. When I arrived, he gave me plenty of time to get settled, use the bathroom, and get situated on the massage table. He made sure that the temperature was comfortable for me, and asked about the kind of pressure I well as discussing my tension areas. After that, I was given a full two hours of detailed massage...from head to toe...strong in the areas that needed it and even some good stretching. Sam included two things that a lot of masseurs skim over...a thorough foot massage and a scalp massage. I love both! From the time I arrived to the time I left, I was actually there about two and a half hours. Also, Sam has a first-time discount, which is a nice touch. When his amazing massage was finished, he told me to lay still for a few minutes and to take my time. That was good, because when I finally sat up on the table, I was a bit lightheaded...just a feeling of floating, like drifting away on a private beach. When I got home, I slept like a rock and had wonderfully peaceful dreams! Thank you Sam. You and your massage are the best!

I saw Sam on the weekly specials email and he was so close that I decided I could use a long massage at such a good price. What luxury to have that much time. He had the Available Now banner on and he was able to fit me in immediately because I was lucky enough to call with just enough time before his late evening client. He's clearly quite experienced and talented, and his apt was lovely and nicely lit for the massage experience. The massage itself: great touch, deep but he pulled back the pressure a bit on my sensitive areas on request, nice to know he can adjust to the client (some can't!) Very attentive, observant, and professional. I fully enjoyed the massage, the conversation, and getting the whole two hours! Yes I will go back...even his regular price is a bargain. Very hard to get even HALF the time at his price in Manhattan.

A wonderful experience! Sam returned my phone call right away and was very comfortable to talk to on the phone...describing the massage and answering my questions. I booked the 2-hour session because I had never experienced a massage that long before. Besides, the price was great for the longer session.

Sam's building was so easy to find, since he's only four blocks from Times Square. Convenience means a lot to me. And, it's a doorman building, which was comforting as well. The atmosphere was totally relaxing. His apartment is very homey and inviting. And, the table is extra cushioned. He told me that he also has a fleece padding under the sheet. I just melted into the table.

The massage was incredible from beginning to end. Sam asked me some questions at the beginning, which was a good sign of individual attention and caring: 1. Did I have any injuries or surgeries that he needed to be careful of? 2. What level of pressure do I like? 3. Were there any problem areas that needed extra work?

Since Sam uses a massage cream instead of oil, I didn't feel I do with oil massages. And, the attention to detail that he gives is the best. He's very thorough, very strong when needed, and is very intuitive. He focused a lot on my shoulders and back, which are my main areas of tension. But, he also spent ample time on my feet, face and scalp. A lot of massage therapists don't do that. Now I see the benefit of the longer sessions. One of the best parts of the experience is that I never felt rushed. Sam gives extra time for preparation and lingering at the end. I was actually there almost two and a half hours. It was $125, plus tip, well spent!

Excellent massage and I left feeling great - and eager to see Sam again. His location is easy to get to and he has a comfortable table with dim lighting (entirely lit by candles) and soft music. Talk about relaxing. Sam is a warm and friendly fellow who welcomed me in, offered water and chatted a bit and was eager to know problem areas and the sort of pressure I wanted. He certainly was listening because I got the deep pressure I asked for and he found sore spots that I wasn't even aware I had. He was very focused and his is a serious massage that worked out the knots, stretched me and relaxed me. I could not imagine a better experience. He is no clock watcher and took his time. Afterwards we chatted a bit and again, no rushing. In short...a terrific massage, well worth the cost (his price for a 2-hour massage is unbeatable), in a safe and convenient location with a friendly and highly skilled guy. Does it get any better? I am looking forward to seeing Sam again - soon!

Everything about Sam and his massage was PERFECT! From the initial contact through getting to his apartment was easy. A great guy.... A great apartment. A setting. From the minute you walk in you begin to relax.
His massage was amazing. The man knew exactly how much pressure and when to use it. I am a big muscle bear-type guy and he worked very hard getting the knots and kinks on back. He intuitively knew exactly what to do, and when he was done with that he turned me over and took at least another 30-40 minutes working on my front. Hands and feet, scalp, neck and did a lot of stretching. OMG!!!
I don't know why this guy isn't sold out through the end of the year. Don't hesitate to contact Sam if you want a really great massage! And his rates are ridiculously affordable. Again, WOW and thank you for an amazing bodywork experience.

Sam was so friendly! He greeted me with kindness and offered me a glass of water. Before the massage, he made sure that I was comfortable and asked about if I had any where that he needed to pay special attention to, I said neck and lower back. Then he asked about the pressure as well.

Anyways, back to the massage. The two hours were so relaxing and I believe it ran a little bit over! He is definitely not a clock watcher. Sometimes you get a massage and you say "not a single muscle was missed" however, for Sam, not a SINGLE TENDON was missed! He really worked out knots and kinks that were in my back, but also there was so much care and love for his art. It is very evident in that.

The massage was not just any massage but really was like an escape from New York city! It was amazing, relaxing, and physically and spiritually relaxing!

I think he charges WAY too little for the QUALITY he provides. I would pay 125 PER HOUR but he was really gracious, saying that he offers a good product for a good price. I say he is wrong. He offers an AMAZING product with an AMAZING price!

Please do not hesitate to contact Sam! He really is amazing!
