Paradise Massage w Rick, Expert LMT

Strong Clean Athlete, Head to Toe Massage



About his bodywork

Hi, Welcome to my Paradise

I provide a strong, skilled therapeutic and relaxing massage with over a decade of experience and extensive schooling.

My set up is in a dedicated massage room in a private apartment just steps from 2 express trains. The session includes combinations of Swedish, Deep Tissue, Thai, Shiatsu, Sports, Stretching, Myofascial and more.

My clients say it best: Ralph (South Africa) Rick is a master & his large strong hands are magical. I was transported to a different world & felt wonderful during and afterwards. It is great to abandon yourself to someone who knows exactly what he's doing. This was one of the best massages I've ever had - definitely to be repeated on my next visit to New York.

- Craig MD (Midtown) Thanks for the excellent work. I am extremely impressed with your skills; the massage was fantastic. You have not only the very rare skill of "listening" to another person's body through your hands, but the ability to translate what you "hear" into extremely effective techniques, adjustments and maneuvers.

I'm a certified, NY State Licensed Massage Therapist. Over 80% of my clients are repeats.

I provide a massage for all: straight, gay, male, female

New York State Licensed Massage Therapist

Many repeat clients including performers, dancers, athletes, and personal trainiers (and all are welcome). I take continuing education courses and receive private lessons from an Osteopathic Physician.

Personal: I was born in Los Angeles and raised there and in the Bay Area of California. I've been in NYC all my adult life. Have experience in technology and education and non profits.

I love music, travel, reading, biking, working out, and the beauty and magic of nature. Roller coasters, adventure, changing paradigms, naps, hot showers, cooking, and being a DJ are more things that I love. I am never, ever (ever!) bored :-)

--- Thank you for considering me.
