Hello, my name is Dan. I've been providing professional massage for men since 1995. My practice is focused on helping men relax and de-stress, to ease their tired, sore muscles, to be more present in their bodies, and perhaps to learn something new about themselves.
I work out of a clean, pleasant studio conveniently located between Dupont and Washington Circles, and am near both the Red Metro Line (Dupont or Farragut North) and Blue/Orange/Silver Metro Lines (Foggy Bottom). I draw from a variety of techniques which I've studied over the years, as well as incorporating my own creative style and insights. Most of my business is from repeat customers which I feel is an indication of the quality of my work.
I enjoy serving men through massage and healing touch regardless of their body type, age or orientation since we are all members of a common brotherhood. As a man I experience what it means to inhabit a male body. I feel that it allows me to provide a more realistic and holistic approach to my work.
Men come to see me mostly for stress reduction and alleviation of muscle pain. But there are other reasons as well such as simply feeling the need for human touch, or learning to be present in one's body, or to work on issues of body shame. Men sometimes prefer to receive massage from another man because of their greater physical strength than most women. And since massage involves removing your clothes, many men are more comfortable with another man in such an intimate situation.
At the beginning of a session we will discuss your personal issues, your needs and what you would like to get out of our time together. In my 20+ years of practice, I've seen and heard just about everything, so don't be embarrassed to talk to me about anything. My practice is about accepting our male bodies and affirming what it is to be men.
I also offer body hair clipping and shaving, and body scrubs/showers for no extra charge.
I look forward to meeting you and creating a space and time of healing and nurturing, brother to brother.
