I have a new massage therapy location this year in Palm Springs. I offer full body medium pressure relaxation massage for gay & straight men. In call appointments are available at a moments notice if possible. How is your body today? The massage works through all of your muscle groups = your relaxation and stress reduction. The massage pressure is adjusted to your body and to how you are feeling. Where do you hold most of your tension?
I bring a relaxing... energy to your massage therapy session.
Try a massage over your legs, low back and your glutes.
Try a massage for your arms, shoulders, feet and hands.
The temperature is always adjusted for your comfort. I use heated Pure Touch Biotone massage cream with hot and dry towels. Yes there is a bathroom but no shower at this location.
Certified & vaccinated massage therapist.

Very lovely massage experience. Clean and pleasant massage unit and comfy massage table. Couldn't ask for more and greeted with a warm smile and made to feel welcome and well taken care of.

Sterling is a true professional. But the real reason you’ll want to visit him is his good instinct as to what type of bodywork you need and respond to. He’s a good listener and can give a massage that ranges from relaxing to deep tissue work. I’ve seen him 6 or 7 times, and look forward to many more appointments in the future. His office is in central Palm Springs and is clean and well-appointed. Shower if needed, and plenty of warm wet and dry towels. All this, and he’s a very nice, handsome guy, too.

Was really nervous at my first massage session with Sterling but he was a really nice guy and put me immediately at ease. His space was clean, pleasant and very calming. Excellent massage technique and he made sure I was comfortable throughout. Thoroughly enjoyable experience and I hope to schedule another appointment with him soon.

Amazing session with Sterling. He was able to accommodate my early morning request. His hands were great. Strokes and even body use for an amazing massage. Warm oil felt amazing. He is well informed on how to work on the body. Parking was not an issue. Shower availability before and after. Pleasure to have been on his table.

Sterling is not only a terrific masseur, he’s a wonderful person - warm, friendly, and genuine. He immediately puts you at ease when you enter his studio, he feels like a friend you’ve known forever. His knowledge of the body and how it works is evident in his massage skills, I knew that I was in good hands. His rates are very reasonable, he’s one of the best massage therapists I’ve ever booked, and I’ve been getting massages for forty years. I look forward to our next session!

Sterling is a great masseur. I have been working with him as one of my "go-to" guys many years? Over five! And in all that time, he has never disappointed me. He's passionate about his work, but takes a sweet, laid back approach to life that reminds me of a nicer time in our world. His in depth knowledge of the human body through his chiropractic training and massage training really helps him help you, but the experience never feels clinical or like he's just going through the motions. He makes you feel warmly welcome, his clean and organized studio is in a convenient location with plenty of parking, and he has a private bath with a shower if you want. He is one of the best masseurs in this town, and although Palm Springs sees its share of visiting masseurs who may all be wonderful, I love that he is local. His strokes go way beyond what works to relax the muscles themselves - he gets into you, your body, and the way it experiences the world. I always leave feeling like spiritually enhanced jello. He is a real find, and any guy would be lucky to be on his table.

Sterling has an awesome touch and way to just melt the stress of everyday living right out of your body. Highly recommend trying his massage at least once and then you will be back again and again.
