Overview

The real thing. Professional, experienced, Licensed Massage Therapist who loves his work.

Expect a custom treatment that incorporates a blend of techniques including Swedish, Deep Tissue, and Stretching.

I work intuitively, but also encourage feed-back during the work. Communication is essential for a great massage.

Massage promotes physical and emotional balance. My work encourages a positive body awareness, and a sense of perspective and clarity.

Mine is a safe and affirming space for all genders and sexual orientations. As a... proud gay man, I especially love working with the LGBT community.

THAI MASSAGE NOW AVAILABLE. Thai massage is considered body-work and energy work. It is a deeply healing meditative dance.

Testimonials

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

Oct. 02, 2019 in New York, NY (in-studio)

Doug is super caring. He listens to the issue, and applies strong or light massage as needed. I had back pain from lifting weights in the gym and my muscles were tight. When I left Doug's cozy home, I felt calmer, and my body hurt less and this effect continues long after the visit.

The moment I saw your welcome smile I knew you were going to give me a great massage.

Your table was wide and comfortable. The music was calming and the air temperature was just right. Indeed, your hands make great body contact and know their way around knots and aches. And thank you for the great stretches.

My experience in your studio will bring me back.

I've been seeing Doug regularly for over five years. He is an amazing masseur: strong and skilled, deeply intuitive and sensitive, a gentle giant. He creates a space where you can let go. He is very open to your needs, listening carefully to how your body is responding as he works on you. He's a sweet, kind man with a great sense of humor. His space is clean and well-appointed, with lovely candles, artwork, and always perfect music for whatever the mood. I've also had his Thai massage, which is a fully therapeutic approach, and really impactful. You won't be disappointed!

Seriously, one of the best massages I’ve ever gotten. He combined many techniques to give an amazing massage and knew when to use a strong touch and when to use a gentle touch. He’s extremely skilled at what he does but he’s also warm and made me feel comfortable and connected to him. I left the session feeling elated, lucky, and grateful. Thanks again Doug.
