Hello and thanks for checking out my ad.

I have been offering high quality bodywork for 25 years.

I offer a unique massage that incorporates a combination of deep-tissue, acupressure, swedish, stretching and reiki.

My bodywork is born out of a deep sense of spirituality, artistry, and a desire to bring healing.

I have helped many clients with issues such as stress management/reduction and healing chronic or acute pain.

My studies have taken on an unorthodox route. I have... studies with many healers and learned many different modalities (rebirthing, reiki, etc.). I have a highly developed intuition that I allow to guide me in my work to bring you the best possible session.

I have a comfortable, wide, heated table. I have a dedicated massage room that is warm, clean and inviting with candlelight and a vast repertoire of music.I have a comfortable, wide, heated table. I pride myself on the beautiful setup I have for my practice.

I live in a beautiful and quiet neighborhood convenient to the Castro/Noe Valley/Upper Market areas. Street parking is usually easily available.

And last, but certainly not least, I am a kind, compassionate and non-judgmental gay male massage therapist. All ages and body types are welcome on my table: men or women, LGBT or straight. I am laid back, but also intense. These qualities as well as those aforementioned, make me perfectly suited to the work I do. It brings me a lot of joy to do what I do.

I look forward to bringing you an exceptional massage session from an exceptional gay masseur.

Thanks for reading my ad. I hope to serve your bodywork needs in the future.

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

I have been going to Giovanni for many years. His home is warm and inviting, especially the massage studio with its rich orange color, candles and incense. His massage table is very comfortable even with my large frame.

He listens to your description of your body's needs for the session and tailors his massage just for you. I love the mix of fascia work, stretching, kneading and long strokes. His technique is excellent. He's always on your muscles and doesn't slip and hurt your bones or joints like some lesser trained therapists can do. He's a pro, the real deal.

And in addition to his massage excellence, he's just a wonderful person and a very friendly guy. I highly recommend him to anyone who wants a quality massage.

Giovanni's many years of massage experience comes out each time I visit him. He responds to wherever I am at. Sometimes I want a deep tissue massage, other times I want it softer. Not only does he listen to what I say, his intuition is strong. There is no one way - each time is different. I have been going monthly for several years now. It is probably my best habit.

Giovanni was extremely good at finding many problem areas during the massage. I kept melting into a deep relaxation. Phenomenal technique.

You can see by the number of reviews that Giovanni is an excellent masseur. This was my first time on his table and it was a wonderful experience. Giovanni is extremely gifted and his massage is magnificent. He takes time to assess your needs then gets right to work. A comfortable table, nicely appointed room and relaxing music set the tone. From there, Giovanni provides one of the best massages I have ever experienced. Massage is an essential part of my self care. Several times monthly, so I can tell you from experience he is an excellent masseur. And, he is a kind spirited gentleman. Book with Giovanni, you'll be glad you did!

Professional, friendly, relaxed, Giovanni is highly competent and extremely intuitive. He gives an outstanding massage. Both myself and my Partner thoroughly enjoyed our 2 hour massages.

I was visiting from Seattle for a volleyball tournament and was in need of a massage. Giovanni was able to accommodate space for me. He definitely has the magic touch and my sore muscles felt so relaxed after the massage. Definitely coming back to see him the next time I'm in town. He great guy, great skill and made me feel very comfortable.

Giovanni has a gentle and kind manner. He is friendly but if you want to be quiet he is fine with that. He builds up carefully to working deep. The massages feel different each time. He senses where you are at and works intuitively. It is not rote. Often he uses gentle but strong stretches which I like. I always fall into a kind of bliss state that is not quite sleep, not awake. Trying to make it a monthly habit!
