Nurturing Swedish/Deep Tissue in Western MA - 28 Yrs Experience



About his bodywork

My massage combines a variety of techniques from Swedish, Reflexology and Deep Tissue to Feather Touch that takes you out of this world, at least for an hour or so. Be prepared to relax and recharge. Feel free to tell me what areas make you feel best, as well as any that may be causing trouble.

Your session will encourage conscious, continuous breathing through the entire, full body massage. You'll be encouraged to empty your head of anything that might interfere with your full enjoyment of caring touch. This is called Mindfullness, where you focus on what you're feeling at the moment, without the thoughts that usually whiz by and distract. If you let yourself relax and receive, you'll end up feeling like pudding. Often for a few days afterward. I try to create a quiet mind.

You'll enjoy a professional massage table, soft lighting, specially mixed music and incense to enhance your ability to shut out the world and concentrate on enjoying my touch. You'll be encouraged to energize your senses. All of them. Sight (soft lighting). Sound (music). Smell (incense). Taste (mints). I try to make your session as immersive as possible. . When you're on my table, you're the boss. When I worked in New York I had many Broadway and Ballet dancers as clients. Their work is punishing to their bodies. Massage is essential to their well-being. Your own work can easily be just as brutal. Relaxation and recharging are wonderfully energizing, regardless of your lifestyle.

Many of my clients identify as straight. Many are married. While this is a male massage performed by another male, you shouldn't attach a specific orientation to it. Leave labels at home. Relaxation is the goal. Absolute discretion is assured. Men massaged by another man doesn't necessarily make it a gay massage, though you're welcome to think of it in any way that makes you comfortable. I don't label you, so you shouldn't label yourself. I promise you'll get out wonderfully alive.

I used to lead the twice weekly New York City Men's massage group - Celebrate Touch. With a friend, I also ran the "New York Sacred Brothers" massage sessions for Body Electric workshop graduates.

If you have any questions, please give me a call, text me, or send email and I'll be glad to answer them.
