I offer a deeply relaxing massage experience that balances healing your injuries and chronic tension with a dedication to gentle, nurturing care for your body.

I specialize in Esalen Massage and Deep Bodywork, combining soothing touch and deep tissue techniques to release rigid muscle structures. Esalen massage is an especially soothing modality that emphasizes quality of touch, signature “long flowing strokes” and integration through breathe, joint mobilization and stretching. Deep... tissue therapy can be integrated according your needs and preferences - I’m happy to do deep targeted work, or stay closer to the surface for a more soothing and relaxing experience

Esalen massage is a nurturing and holistic approach to therapeutic bodywork. To be clear: I am a professional healer offering therapeutic services only. If your idea of "m4m male massage" goes beyond that, please look elsewhere! (No judgment, it's just not my thing!)

I usually limit my massage work to two clients per day because I want to show up to every session full of energy and ready to give 100%. My reviews on this site attest to my commitment to taking great care of every client who comes through my door.

Although you are always welcome to reach out last minute, I encourage you to set something up a couple days in advance to ensure we can find a time that works.

If you have any questions about me or my work, please get in touch! I look forward to working with you.

About him

I am a certified massage therapist with over 700 hours of training in a variety of bodywork modalities, and over 7 years of experience in private practice.

I lived at the Esalen Institute in Big Sur, California for a year studying massage, somatics, and holistic bodywork. Training at Esalen takes a whole person approach: body, heart, and spirit. Esalen massage is a sensate-focused, flowing style that emphasizes conscious touch and... quality of contact. I'm also certified in the Deep Bodywork method of deep tissue therapy for healing injuries. The two modalities can be integrated according to your preferences - just let me know how I can best serve your needs!

I'm also certified in Thai Massage, yoga instruction, I have a certification in life & wellness coaching, and recently completed a PhD in mind-body psychology from Pacifica Graduate Institute.

About me: I'm a sensitive, compassionate, intellectual guy (graduate of UC Berkeley) with a passion for bringing more healing into our troubled world. I've always had a natural empathy and care for the people around me, and consider myself lucky to work in a field where I get to offer nourishing touch on a regular basis.

Jonathan is a welcomed addition to Portland bodywork community. He has nearly magical hands. He emits a strong positive connection and calming energy. He recently moved his studio from an office building to the sun room in a grand old arts&crafts house in a quiet residential neighborhood conveniently located in NE. Charming ambience. Jonathan uses a wide range of massage techniques and pressure. He can do deep tissue work uopn request. Read his description closely. It is accurate. I have no hesitation giving Jonathan a 5 star rating.
