By mark in San Francisco, CA

Best find in bodywork -- chatty but also quiet, deep pressure, excellent stretches, pushing me suggestions for good nutrition & workouts & stretching on my own & good mental health. Maybe it's him with all his clients,but we are always in sync. Matt gives a strong, positive, affirming vibe and just doesn't let up. He's a strong light, a reliable port in a storm, a savvy and healthy guy who wants you to be the same. Physically, he is just like his pics (they represent him quite accurately), and he is intuitive because his objective is to know your body and give it yeh massage it needs. He's quite skilled at this. It's a gift. And he has it.

I met Matt outside the massage studio. He immediately put me at ease. I was so pleasantly surprised at his expertise and in his hands and powerful arms. He his the right points and yet he was so gentle. His knowledge is amazing and the whole experience left me feeling like I was at complete peace. My body lives in pain yet Matt released that pain two times now. I highly recommend this massage therapist to everyone. He is absolutely amazing.

By JW in Oakland, CA

I injured my back and needed a massage to help the healing. For that I wanted a masseur who could perform sports massage. I had massage with Matt before, but it was more of a relaxing type. This time, after talking about the circumstances of my injury, Matt proceeded to a series of stretches which loosened up my stiff muscles, following which, he applied increasing pressure on the sore areas. He is a very strong man, but uses the strength in a gentle way. At the same time he creates a very friendly and easy ambiance which makes it easier to relax.
My back felt immediately better and it still does. I highly recommend Matt and hope to have more opportunities to enjoy his healing touch.

I would have to say that this was the best massage I have ever received. Matt is tops in his field. I have had few massages in the past couple of years, and none compare to this. His techniques and skill surpass them all.

This was my second massage appointment with Matt. It was an exceptional experience. Matt is very gifted in reading the body and using multiple techniques during the session. He is at the top of the list in my opinion and I look forward to returning for another fantastic massage in the near future.
