About his bodywork

I’m a California-certified massage therapist with over 700 hours of bodywork training. I would describe myself as attentive, caring, present, organized and dedicated to what I do. My bodywork offerings range from relaxation-focused where we work on helping you let go of sources of stress physically, emotionally and mentally to working on specific muscular issues that are creating pain and discomfort and impeding your physical activities.

I try to find the perfect balance between creating an experience that feels amazingly blissful while you're on the table and resetting your body so that you feel more alive, relaxed and physically capable in the days following your session. All sessions begin with a chat for you to tell me what's going on with your body and your goals for the session. For specific issues, I will perform an verbal and physical assessment to understand the issue and create a plan to address it. The timed massage session does not begin until you are actually on the table. My bodywork typically includes long, relaxing strokes that span from head to toe to reconnect you with your body, deep tissue and trigger point work on areas of chronic tension, focused bodywork on areas you request that are causing pain or discomfort, and Thai-massage stretching to increase mobility and reduce stiffness. Upon request, some sessions also include dialoging during the massage to help explore and unravel negative mental stories that are a source of physical stress and tension. All sessions end with a fully-body wipe-down with steaming hot towels.

I love being able to serve the gay community through male massage, and I am most drawn to clients who enjoy deep yet soothingly enjoyable therapeutic work.

TEXT or EMAIL is the best way to contact me. Thanks!!

About Him

I LOVE doing massage!! My education started at a very early age, trained by my mother to work out chronic knots in her back. As I got older, I found myself naturally drawn to massage those around me any chance I could get. After years of informal training through trades with CMTs in SF since moving here in 2004, I took my first formal massage course in 2009. I knew immediately that massage was a natural fit for me and needed to be an integral part of my life. I've since completed over 700 hours of training, mostly with the San Francisco School of Massage and Upledger Institute, where I continue to participate regularly in specialized workshops, always striving to take my skills to the next level to serve my clients as best I can.

When I'm not massaging, I'm usually exploring a number of other passions, including languages, gymnastics, acrobatic hand balancing and rock climbing.
