Testimonials

Gathered by Ben from admiring massage clients to share with you.

June 03, 2022 in Danvers, MA (in-studio)

Through the years, I have had many massages and there is none better than Ben’s signature treatment. Besides providing a very relaxing experience, Ben has helped alleviate my chronic knee and leg pain time after time – so much so that I no longer take over-the-counter pain medication. I am a client for life and visit his studio regularly.

Before beginning treatment, Ben takes the time to understand what the client hopes to achieve during a session, and he follows through to help meet client expectations. Given my experience with other massage providers, the treatment I receive from Ben is tailored to my needs. Ben’s assessment also precedes the start of subsequent therapy sessions, and he will adapt accordingly.

Ben’s studio is a nice place to be – providing a tranquil and soothing vibe so much so that falling asleep during the treatment is a real possibility. If you prefer conversation, Ben will engage.

Ben is the consummate professional. He listens and works to promote client well-being. And he is one heck of a nice guy. Altogether, visiting Ben’s studio is one of the highlights of my week.

Needed a massage to take my mind off of things and to relax in general, and there was Ben’s profile. The reviews I read about him and then the text exchange with Ben, convinced me he would be the right masseur; he was indeed! His massage technique and our conversation helped me relax. The knee that had been bothering felt much better by the end of the 90-minutes. Tonight, as I write this, I am stilling feeling the benefits of an excellent masseur. Lucky for me I visit the area every few months. I will definitely book another appointment with Ben the next time I am here.

I just returned from another amazing massage session with Ben. I went into Ben's space with lots of tension, tightness and knots and left fully relaxed, loose and free of any aches and pains. Ben has magical hands and knows just how to apply them to soothe aching muscles and joints. In addition, he is very knowledgeable about human physiology and knows what lies beneath the affected areas that is causing the discomfort. His exceptional skills go along so well with his nurturing, supportive and caring manner. All in all, a wonderful session and I look forward with great anticipation to my next visit.

Ben is outstanding. He is a real pro who made me feel great. From the very first touch I could tell this guy was different than many - he understands the (male) body and the art of great massage. Really great session.
