Overview

Welcome to BODYWORK BY DOMINIC

My many (REAL) reviews speak for themselves (taken from Yelp). Offering legitimate therapeutic massage, for the full duration of the time that you booked, no less, while remaining consistently sensitive to the needs and overall comfortability of those in the LGBT community.

**STRICTLY THERAPEUTIC. NO EUPHEMISMS.**

Currently based out of my home studio in the Bronx (East Tremont), I am a professional masseur with over 12 years experience.

I incorporate SPORTS RECOVERY, DEEP TISSUE and... THAI MASSAGE into my work, giving you the BEST of Eastern & Western Practices in the same session. Full body massage, or we can just target specific muscle groups for the bulk of the session based on your personal needs. I mainly use BIOTONE Dual-Purpose Massage Cream for my clients, for the sake of absorbency and allergy sensitivity, but can create custom blends that incorporate aromatherapy essential oils. For oils I start with a grapeseed base. If you have your own preference I can work with that.

ALWAYS with table. NO EXCEPTIONS. If you'd like a house call, please make sure your space can accommodate my massage table.

FUN FACT: “masseuse” are female massage therapists. It's called "Masseurfinder" because the site offers services by cis and male presenting bodyworkers.

June 22, 2022 in The Bronx, NY (in-studio)

I've meant to write a review of Dominic for a while. Out of the many massage therapists I've been to in the past, I can wholeheartedly say Dominic is one of the best I've ever been to. The professionalism and love he has for the craft is seen in everything he does. From the scents he uses, to the music he plays, lotions and even temperature of the room are all taken into consideration before each session. As soon as you walk in, he creates a peaceful environment, allowing you to feel at ease. He starts with inquiring about any injuries or specific areas that need attention so he's never aimlessly working. There is purpose behind every stroke and they definitely aren't generic. Dominic's style is very methodical, thoroughly working one area at a time and revisiting trouble spots when needed.
One thing I really appreciate about my sessions with Dominic are the incorporated stretches and guided deep breathing throughout. Many therapists don't include that. Adding that element increase the effectiveness of the massage. I always look forward to my next session knowing that every time I leave, my body feels rejuvenated. I promise you won't regret requesting his services. A true master at his profession.

Dominic was very professional from start to finish. He was very accommodating with my request for an appointment. His apartment is very clean and pleasant. The massage session was great! I would highly recommend.

Saw Dominic for a session today for the first time and he is a true professional and welcoming (this dude is funny and entertaining). Good massage technique mix to address my needs and always checked in on pressure and comfort. Look forward to getting on his table again...you will not be disappointed.

So these months of working from home (with a not so ergonomic workstation compared to what I have in my office) and the complete absence of strength training (with my gym being closed) took a toll on my right shoulder. I knew what I had to do - book an appointment with Dominic. He strictly followed recommended COVID-19 protocols when I got to my appointment and we went through a thorough assessment of what was bothering me. My session with Dominic was a complete opposite of a generic "good" massage. It was tailored and structured around my complaints without neglecting to give attention to others that occasionally bother me (i.e. lower back). He was very professional and continued to do real time assessment during the session by examining my right arm's complete range of motion - I get professional massages often and I have never experienced such detail! Definitely 5 stars and highly recommended!

Suffice to say it’s been a stressful year so far, and my original masseur had long since departed for the west coast to pursue his acting career, leaving me to have to play trial and error again. I lucked out on the second try. Showing up on time, massage table in tow, Dominic addressed all my safety concerns and was compassionate about enforcing the mandate. He was able to work on my partner and I back to back for two consecutive hours, with his mask on, and was probably breathing more fully than I was as I lay facedown with my head in the cradle. Great pressure that he guides you through. Somehow managed to apply said pressure while setting me at ease with his ridiculously humorous self-deprecating narration. My partner and I have a new regular therapist that I highly recommend if you’re looking for serious therapeutic bodywork.

My regular therapist was away for the holidays, So I tried Dominic on a hunch. My intuition proved true. This guy is an incredible therapist. You get a very legitimate massage that will leave you totally relaxed and invigorated. Too bad he lives in New York. He would give my regular therapist a run for the money.

If you live in Miami, try to make an appointment before he leaves. If you live in NYC you're fortunate to have him there.
