Overview

With all of the healing work I perform, I work from my heart chakra. This immediately sets a tone of love, nurturing, compassion and understanding, creating a safe and supportive space for healing to occur. While bodywork feels good to one's physical structure, all of my treatments address your body's energy as well. Energetic imbalances lead to physiological imbalances, creating areas of tension, pain, and discomfort. By addressing... my client's physicality AND energy, I not only attend to what is uncomfortable in that moment, but work on the underlying cause of the discomfort, helping to ameliorate future aggravation.

I have been working with clients for 4 years, and specialize in deep tissue work. I employ a wide range of pressures when working with clients; deep tissue is what I am best known for. My client base is largely male, though I treat all people in need of nurturing, healing intervention. Male massage is quite special and dear to my heart, as many men, especially gay men, lack in tender, heart centered touch, being far more familiar with that which is grounded solely in the primal-physical. We all need loving touch in our lives, and most of my clients continue to return because they walk away feeling as if their total being was addressed as they lay on my table.

Apart from deep tissue work, I'm certifying in a bodywork called Zero Balancing which addresses bone held tension, as opposed to muscular held tension. What many people don't realize is that bones are actually quite porous and squishy, and day to day living can create areas of tension within the bones, which can then affect all other tissues; bones are the deepest tissues in the body, and working with them can be extremely transformative and supportive to my clients.

About him

I'm a New York native, having lived in NYC for the past 7 years. I grew up in a town on Long Island approximately 45 min from the city. My formal training was in Nursing, though I have not worked as a nurse since July, 2013; many of the tenets of western medicine no longer resonate with me. Practicing bodywork and energy work helps me to stay aligned with... what resonates most strongly with my being.

Health is my top priority in life. What does that mean? Having a healthy lifestyle, one in which I take good care of my body, mind, spirit and emotions. I workout regularly, eat healthy foods (though I do have a penchant for sweets), I have a spiritual practice that keeps me grounded and attuned to my own needs and the needs of those around me, and do my very best to be of service.

Part of living a healthy life is making powerful connections with others. This is another reason why I greatly love the work I'm doing presently. It allows me the ability to connect with people from all walks of life, engage their bodies, both physical and energetic, and hold the space for them to come back to balance, to a center space, elevating their personal vibration to new heights and levels of peace and understanding. I feel honored and privileged to be able to do the work that I do.

Testimonials

Oct. 09, 2017

By Josh in New York, NY

I booked an appointment with Mateo twice and cancelled twice. I was reluctant because of the cost and the location.
Mateo would not give me another appointment thinking I was rude and inconsiderate to cancel twice.
I called with a different number and made an appointment.
Am I glad I did. While the massage is what counts, he is a thousand times better looking than his picture.
The massage was healing and he has a great energy. I have had many massages in my life but this one was a cut above. He is well worth it.
I felt a sense of healing after and I am definitely coming back again and many more times after. I apologized to him for not respecting his time.
He is a beautiful person with an even more beautiful soul.

There are many masseurs on this site, but there are few I would put in the category of true healers. Mateo is one of them. He stands out in many ways. He has outstanding massage skills, uses strong and deep pressure, is a great communicator, and truly sees you as a whole person. The massage experience was one of the best I have experienced. He is kind, strong, handsome and highly skilled. Don't miss the chance to make this connection.

Mateo was fantastic - hands down. From being easy to set up the appointment with via text, to getting to his place close to the subway, to getting up to a very nice, sunlit apartment that almost felt like a greenhouse with the many plants. Everything was easy. It was only matched by his easy-going and friendly demeanor. He asked about pressure and went to work. Great, deep therapeutic work accompanied by very nice and interesting conversation (he can also not talk if you prefer but I enjoyed getting to know him). Not afraid to work deep in the muscles in many spots some masseurs skip or go over lightly (e.g., forearms). Excellent massage and a very spiritual experience! Highly recommend!

Mateo was incredibly flexible with setting up a very last minute appointment. He was polite throughout our pre-massage texts . His location is situated in an area easily accessible by public transit.

The massage itself was superb! I can't recommend him enough. Not only was he "technically" skilled - it felt very warm and I felt like he was honestly invested in making this experience a brilliant one for me. I loved how he checked in every once in a while to make sure the pressure/temp was right. He was warm, non-judgmental and did I mention absolutely gorgeous :)

I had a session from him last month in September and it was for Zero Balancing. For those of you who considers themselves spiritual, this is a good body and mind cleansing massage I believe. I was able to feel that his technique was reaching more than my bones.. And at the end I really feel relaxed, and at peace..

By Rob in Florham Park, NJ

Calling Mateo was one of the best decisions I have made in long time. Having had surgery about 4 months ago, I felt the need to reconnect with my body. Mateo's background in nursing attracted me to his profile--not to mention that he is an incredibly handsome man and very physically fit as I came to find out. I had a little reluctance to travel from midtown Manhattan to his location. But it was an easy trip by subway, the area seems very safe and his doorman building and apartment are very nice. All that aside, Mateo greeted me with questions about any physical issues I might be having. He is an excellent listener and thoroughly understood my situation both physically and emotionally. His massage technique is incredible--strong, yet tender and totally attuned to my body. I could actually feel a transfer of energy from his body to mine. He conveyed such a caring attitude about my well being and continued recovery. I knew I was in a safe space in every way and will definitely see him again. Mateo is eye candy for sure but so much more than that--nurturing, spiritual, reassuring, validating--I could go on and on but but just trust me that he is the real deal.

By CADreamer in Lomita, CA

I must admit that I was initially attracted to Mateo's ad because of the photos showing an extremely handsome masseur. Before I made an appointment, I did my research and discovered rave reviews for his thorough, therapeutic massage. As an R.N., Mateo knows the body well. As a healer, he exhibits interest in his clients' well-being. I contacted Mateo to make an appointment for a 90 minute massage on the Saturday of his visit to Los Angeles. He was very easy to work with in making the arrangements. On the day of the appointment there was a light rain in the morning which, coupled with some road closures, made my trip to his Hollywood location the longest I have ever experienced. I ended up being 15 minutes late, but Mateo was very understanding about it (I did keep him updated on my progress). I expected the massage to be shortened to 75 minutes so he could stay on schedule, but Mateo did the entire 90. The massage itself was first rate. It is hard to believe he wasn't formally trained. My only regret is that I now have family visiting and won't be able to see him again before he goes home. Mateo is a kind, talented, and caring practitioner; and handsome to boot. You won’t regret making an appointment with him. Mateo, I hope you return to Los Angeles soon!

By John in New York, NY

I preface this by stating I get a massage generally twice a month for the last 10 or so years, been lucky enough to try different approaches in over 25 countries, and can say without hesitation that this was in the top two massages I ever had.
Pressure was excellent, a good massage therapist I think can feel what you need and Mateo does an excellent read of the body and where it needs work.. He got in deep right away and I know with some therapists it can take them several sessions before they figure that out. It could very well be tied to his background in healthcare and love for what he does.
His studio was perfect. Perfect lighting, ambiance temperature and. music. He's a very handsome man with a soothing voice that instantly puts you at ease. One of the few therapists that I really enjoyed talking to as he was interesting, funny and informative explaining what he was doing and why, and really enjoyed the conversation.
I really feel you won't find a better Massage experience or massage therapist. If I could give him a 6 th star I would as he deserves to stand out from the rest.

By anonymous nyc guy in Brooklyn, NY

Mateo has really strong hands! He is a handsome, friendly guy with a warm relaxed presence that made me feel very comfortable. He gave me a very deep massage that really worked on some of my problem areas. Mateo mixed it up too by using a range of percussion, lighter strokes, and some stretches which kept it all very interesting. I would definitely recommend him, particularly if you find other masseurs don't use firm enough pressure in deep tissue work.

By Travis in New York, NY

Mateo's massage was exactly what I had been needing for weeks! He was very kind and timely with setting up an appointment, and his apartment was clean, peaceful, and welcoming. I came in with a lot of soreness/tension and pain all over, and he was very thorough in understanding what was going on so that I could have the best experience possible. Mateo explained his more spiritual approach, and asked permission before using his intuition to tap into some things that were going on emotionally that pertained to a lot of the soreness that was going on. He was NOT pushy with this at all, which helped to create a very safe environment where I felt comfortable talking about some things that were going on that he was picking up on. He is definitely well connected spiritually and I trust his intuition. He also shared some great recommendations for dealing with my chronic migraines.

I would DEFINITELY recommend him for a massage- this was very relaxing and I enjoyed being able to converse during the massage, something that I don't get other places- which can feel very stiff an not personal. If someone is touching my entire body, I definitely appreciate being able to communicate as two open human beings in a room sharing a healing experience. Mateo is kind, thorough, respectful, and very gifted!

By None in Naples, FL

I was attracted to Mateo's ad by the description of his massage and use of words like "energy", "healing" and "heart charka". Making an appointment was easy and his studio is very accessible. It is clean, comfortable and inviting. Mateo is beautiful in many ways. The physical is very obvious; the internal just radiates from within. He begins by asking if he can communicate with your body, a first for me. His massage is deep tissue therapeutic, great. He continually checks to see if the pressure is "right". The massage is wonderful.

But Mateo offers so much more than a mere massage. He is very intuitive, insightful and "reads" you. He offers feed back; amazingly spot on. I could feel the exchange of positive energy throughout the massage. It was blissful.

If you are looking for a great therapeutic massage from a beautiful person look no further.

By Anonynous in New York, NY

I had a cancelation by another masseur last minute before a very busy day and needed a deep massage to prepare my body for the tasks ahead. Not only did Mateo come to rescue by squeezing me into his schedule last minute late at night, he also gave me one of the most thorough and deep massages I've ever had. The man is a master as his work! Head to toe melted my every muscle. I was pretty much a puddle of jelly walking out of his place. I slept better than I have in a long time and was able to conquer the next day. His pictures are 100% accurate, He KNOWS what he is doing, knows how to connect to each client, made me feel so incredibly comfortable, and made the experience extremely soothing. You will not regret a session with him for a moment. Don't toy with these other masseurs who are here for looks and don't know how to massage. Mateo has the looks and touch of a pro.

By invisiblerider in Bergenfield, NJ

What an incredible massage. This was hands down the best massage I have ever had in all my years of getting massages. First it was so so easy to set up the appointment. When he arrived what a handsome man was at the door but really its his personality that makes him that much more attractive. The real meat and potatoes to him is his work. He truly loves what he does and he is exceptional at it. Pressure was great and the few tender spots he hit on me all I had to say way thats a little hard there and he immediately eased up. This will not be my last massage with him and I will be seeing him for years to come. Yes years.

By ddog717 in White Plains, NY

A year ago I contacted Mateo for a massage. My lower back was feeling tight and I was about to go away on a business trip. I had experienced some pretty poor massages in the past and wasn't sure what I was going to walk into. A year later I continue to see Mateo every two weeks to work out the kinks. Sometimes he comes to me in Westchester, other times I visit him in his apartment in the city. He is professional, skilled, intuitive, kind, gorgeous and an overall good person. This is a real massage from a talented massuer who continues to expand his skill set to help me and his other regular clients. I never sleep as well as I do after a zero balance session with Mateo. I am so much better off having emailed him a year ago. You could be too.

You will experience his passion for bodywork as he administers one of the best massages you have had, this combined with his personality, amazingly handsome looks and a stunning physique will leave you in pure awe and you asking yourself why didn't you book a longer session.
Give him a shot and you too will find yourself here sharing your experience from this talented guy and booking your next session and soon you will be seeing him as often as you can.
