Richard, the Gentle Giant

Personalized Massage for You



About his bodywork

Do you ever have the feeling that your massage therapist wished you were twenty years younger and could be on the front of a fitness catalog?

Do you ever get the feeling that the massage you get is the same lifeless set of strokes your therapist gives everyone else?

Shouldn't you feel welcomed? Cared-for? Shouldn't your therapist be excited to see you? Shouldn't you get a massage crafted just for you, fulfilling your needs and desires?

You deserve a warm, caring, intuitive experience regardless of who you are and what you look like. You deserve a therapist who is utterly dedicated to your health and happiness.

You deserve a massage from the Gentle Giant!

My name is Richard. Let my huge, sensitive, caring, nurturing, healing hands show you what you've been yearning for, but never quite found. I have years of massage experience and I treat each client as a friend. I use a Swedish-based style of massage, but it is very intuitive. Each massage is PERSONALIZED to the clients' preferences and needs: light, medium or firm pressure. Special areas of tension are addressed individually.

Massages are given in a warm quiet studio on a professional heated table with comfortable, adjustable face cradle. Soft music, and low lighting create the perfect environment for maximum relaxation!

This may sound like every other massage ad, but give yourself the chance to experience what my regular clients already know...massage from the Gentle Giant is unlike anything you've experienced before. This is truly an overwhelming experience that will revolutionize the way you think about massage. There's so much bad out there. Isn't it time to try the good?

Men of color, bears and cubs, and older men are especially welcome on my table. Most ads seem to exclude them, and that's just wrong. I'm happy to offer a student discount with proof.

You're worth it. Call me today.
