I am CMT, male, offering competitive, year-round savings.

I am a massage care professional in my early 30s who is career minded and an honor's graduate of the University of Life. I am trained and certified, and have a substantial working knowledge of the art of massage. I can provide amazing sensations and techniques to relax and stimulate the body, and it can be customized to address your particular areas of stress, strain, pain, tension, and aches. Massage can bring pleasure by maximizing the blood flow, as well as helping the body in its process of renewal and repair.

Many of my clients come from different walks of life, and every person is different, which is one of the reasons I enjoy my career. I have an intuitive touch and a deep desire to help people who want or need a massage like the massage styles I provide. I'm the type of person who enjoys working on the body for my clients' well being, in efforts to help relieve your stress, tension, and anxieties in everyday life.

As your masseur, I'll be sure you receive the utmost quality of your time spent. Any one of my sessions includes every aspect in a full body massage. I will use my best judgement on where to utilize time to those areas, unless instructed otherwise by you, the client.

The most popular massage styles are:

1. Therapeutic Massage
2. Sensual Massage
3. Sports Therapy Massage with Stretching
4. Four Hands Massage
5. Swedish Massage

    I was stressed, sore, depressed, and achy before I saw Steve. His massage skills are without match, and he is acme to read your responses to the massage, knowing exactly how to relieve your pain and stress. I would highly recommend Steve to anyone who is looking for a "go-to" massage therapist.

    Hey Adam,

    I had my first 2 hr. session with Steve a few days ago, in one of this wintersí most cold days. Steve is a professional who has a keen understanding of his clientís needs and makes every effort to meet and exceed your expectations. When I arrived, the room was warm, clean and ready. He put some soothing music, brought me some water and started his magic. Yes, I would describe it as magic! All the while you feel totally safe and pampered! The two hours went by quickly and I canít wait to come back to him again!

    Evening Ana,

Sorry to say my 2 hour sessions do some times tend to go by quickly perhaps in the future I can extend your time so your able to enjoy and unwind better.
    Thanks and look forward to seeing you again soon too,

    Steve is pleasant, courteous, and a true professional. What's good: wonderful massage, comfortable surroundings, excellent neighborhood, easy parking in front of the studio. What's not good: my 90' fly by too fast. I see Steve as often as I can make the long drive. He's the best; and the best value in the business.

    Bob,
    thank you for the nice review. I appreciate your business and I look forward to seeing you again and again in 2014.

    Went to see Steve and Katie for a four hand massage. Wasn't sure what to expect but it might have been the best massage I have ever had. I have had some significant losses in the last several yrs and they were able to help me forget about each and everyone of them. Yes, I will go back time and time again.

  • 5/5 stars April 6, 2013

    I booked a one hour sweedish massage last weekend. I arrived and he was ready for me. I did not have to wait. He concentrated on my problem area, my upper back. Overall a relaxing, pleasant experience.

    Zoe,
    Thanks for the kind review, I'm glad to be able to
    help you feel better and help take away your soreness and
    tension.

  • 5/5 stars April 5, 2013

    I have been going to Steve regularly for six months, usually for 1 hour at a time. I always leave a session feeling better--both physically and emotionally--but wishing it had lasted longer. Steveís approach to working on me is consistent but, unlike others I have received massage from, he varies his focus from session to session based on how I am responding. As a result, he doesnít just go through the same motions each time.

    Steve G. from Sensationstouch Massage Therapy replied to this review on April 10, 2013:

    It's always a pleasure being able to provide you with
    a great service and massage time an time again.
    Perhaps in future sessions I can extend the time
    of some of your sessions. I always appreciate and value
    your friendship and business.
    Thanks again,

    Steve is an amazing massage therapist who knows how to accommodate and clearly communicate with clients. I had a 2-hour session with him and every minute was worth the money. I was looking to relax and be pampered. Steve's touch or technique consisted of a rare but wonderful combination of relaxing Swedish massage but with a firm pressure. The technique used removed all the stress in my back and neck. When I left, I felt happy and stress-free. I definitely plan to return for more massage therapy!

    Steve G. from Sensationstouch Massage Therapy replied to this review on April 3, 2013:

    Diane,
    I am so pleased that you enjoyed your session with me. As you know I take pride in my work to give you the client a quality massage session and care that is and was so very much sought out, desired and needed. I'm glad that you were able to unwind, relax, feel pampered and melt in my hands through a sublime symphony of the healing arts of massage for the mind, body and spirit.
    I certainly hope to get to build with you in future sessions, so that your journey with massage therapy can be truly blissful.

    I just had my first massage with Steve's partner, Katie, and it was wonderful. She is very friendly, laid-back, accommodating, careful to ask and listen to your goals for the massage, and does a really nice job. I had a 90 minute, and she used the whole time very well. I met Steve when I got there, and he seemed nice and friendly as well. But Katie is the one who did my massage, and I would definitely recommend her and I plan to go back again soon. I've had a number of massages before so a top rating for Katie comes from experience.

    Steve G. from Sensationstouch Massage Therapy replied to this review on April 3, 2013:

    Gary,
    I'm certainly glad to get such a kind response and review. I certainly hope I get to see you again sooner then later for future sessions.
    Thank you,
    Katie.

    My first experience with Steve as my therapist was fantastic. He was cordial and caring. The massage really helped with my muscle structure and he was very attentive to all my needs. I felt relaxed and comfortable. The room was warm and the music atmosphere was super. I strongly recommend Steve if you need a great massage and to relax. Tom

    Steve G. from Sensationstouch Massage Therapy replied to this review on March 29, 2013:

    Tom,
    I'm glad your first experience with me was amazing, I hope in future sessions with me your able to grip and obtain everything and anything you need and or desire. I look forward to developing a working relationship with you for years to come.

    Steve is a first-class professional! I have been seeing Steve for over a year. Without question he has given me the best and most gratifying massages I ever recieved. He demonstrates his professionalism and expertise by showing his interest to satisfy his clients and accomodate their needs. He strives for excellence in pleasing his clients. Steve was able to effectively release all the tension and relax all the tight muscles. I truly melted under his strong, talented hands, arms and entire body. If you want a truly awesome and memorable massage experience, I highly recommend Steve. It doesn't get any better than him!

    Steve has a natural knack for tailoring your massage to the issues your body is having. Having a massage with Steve is never run of the mill. It's invigorating, stimulating healing and improving your health. To me, all things I want and need to have in a massage are guaranteed to happen with a massage done by Steve.

    Steve G. from Sensationstouch Massage Therapy replied to this review on September 17, 2012:

    Karin,
    Over the years you've been a great influence in both my business and personal life. I truly appreciate everything you do to encourage me to be the best I can in my field and industry. Believe me it means a lot. It's always a pleasure to hear that you say I have a natural knack for massage. I think your right, which was one of the main reasons I entered into this line of work and field in the first place. (-:

  • 4/5 stars September 8, 2012

    I've seen Steve so may times I have forgotten how many appointments we've had together. Each session gets better and better and this most recent was the BEST yet! I arrived a few minutes late, but Steve opened the door and greeted me and let me tell you, when he opened that door pure pleasure started. I got undressed and laid on the bed and the pleasure commenced. He started with his usual techniques and then proceeded to send relaxation throughout my body, starting from my shoulders down to my ankles. This time around he worked on my most stressed areas with extra attention (even though I did not even tell him where the stress was built up) and put a little extra firmness into the session to help release weeks of airplane tension that had built up. When he was finished with my back he flipped me over and I was instantly taken to another state of euphoria. I have to tell you that each session with Steve makes me SO relaxed, that I can sleep an entire day. His touch sends you into pure bliss and I was so relaxed I had drifted off a couple of times. This late night experience was amazing and I will of course wait with baited breath for the next appointment!

    For the last two years, Steve Giroux has given me a series of 90-minute massages, which have left me relaxed, fulfilled, and vibrantly alive. Steve has excellent hands -- firm yet gentle. He is careful to find out about the customer's needs and wishes. and he is a friendly, calm, and open person. Appointments are easy to arrange.

    Steve G. from Sensationstouch Massage Therapy replied to this review on September 16, 2012:

    So nice to hear you've enjoyed all your sessions over the past two years. It means a lot to know that you've enjoyed each session and will continue to support me and Sensationstouch Massage Therapy in the years to come.

  • 5/5 stars September 6, 2012

    I have had a number of massages with Steve, and he is very talented -- intuitive, always gets my back fixed, and I leave in better shape than I came in (not always the case with massage practitioners in MD!) He could use a better location, but that's secondary to the quality of his work.

    Steve G. from Sensationstouch Massage Therapy replied to this review on September 16, 2012:

    I appreciate the kind review. Just let me know next time you need a massage, I will be sure to make myself available.

  • 5/5 stars September 5, 2012

A. The most common jobs I do for my clients are 1 hour and 90 minute or 2 hour massage sessions. Styles of massage vary depending on what my customer would like.

Q. Describe three recent jobs you've completed.

A. Over the past week I've completed two 90 minute Sports Therapy with stretching massages as well as a 4 - 1 hour Sensual-Sweedish style massages.

Q. What advice do you have for a customer looking to hire a provider like you?

A. When your looking for a provider for massage be sure you ask the Massage Therapist questions. The more you know the better your massage will be. Interacting and developing a "friendship" and or becoming a regular client ultimately will benefit you the customer in the long run.

Q. What questions should a consumer ask to hire the right service professional?

A. How long have you been in business?

Are you available to travel or do you have an incall location?

I don't want to go out; Are you available come to my home?

I'm a woman and would love to be massaged by a man but how can I be sure that you won't take advantage?

Are you open and available to massage a man or couple?

How much is all this going to cost me?

I'm single, student, parent, having career/job difficulties in our economy, ect, and I'm not sure I can afford your service. Can you work with me?

Do you offer discounts to Military Personel?

Do you offer discounts to college students?

Q. What important information should buyers have thought through before seeking you out?

A. Make sure you have ample time for your massage and aren't rushed. I will sometimes go over the time scheduled if I feel you need or require the extra time, to help in your renewal and repair to your mind and body.

Q. Why does your work stand out from others who do what you do?

A. I generally stay pretty competitive, I always try and give a customer a quality session without having them feel rushed or pressured, but always safe and secure.

Q. What do you like most about your job?

A. What I like most is the diverse people I am able to meet.
I enjoy hearing back from my previous customers having them tell me how I was able to help them feel more pain free or giving someone else the ability to unwind, relax and enjoy a massage session.

Q. What questions do customers most commonly ask you? What's your answer?

A. Q1.: I don't want to go out; Are you available come to my home
A1: Yes of course, provided you are accessible and not too far out of the Maryland-Washington DC-NOVA Metropolitian Area.

Q2: I have had major surgery that has left me scarred and deformed - what will you think?

A2: I will think that you have gone through a terrible ordeal and need all the help and support you can get.

Q3: I'm a woman and would love to be massaged by a man but how can I be sure that you won't take advantage?

A3: You can't really but I have been massaging both men, women and couples professionally for 8 years as of January 2013 and haven't taken advantage of one yet. Give me a chance. You'll love it.

Q4: How much is all this going to cost me?

A4: I stay competitive, however generally you will find my service to be lower than anyone elses. I have regular rates, specials I run at different times and seasons of the year and returning client specials for those who are repeat clients and wish to have a long standing Relationship-Friendship with their masseur-massage therapist.

Q5: I'm single, student, parent, having career/job difficulties in our economy, ect, and I'm not sure I can afford your service. Can you work with me?

A5: Yes provided you are 21 +, I'm not in this business soley for the money, I have a true passion for the art of massage and the healing techniques that provide amazing feelings throughout the body. We can discuss all the details when you email me. If you are a student - A student ID will be required.

Q6: Do you offer discounts to Military Personel?

A6: Yes I do provide Military Discounts - Provided you can furnish your Military ID - Not a Drivers licence or State ID card or are dressed in uniform. Discount per 1 person is $20.00 USD off any 1 hour session, based on Massage Special, session rates. If you are Married or a couple per 2 people it's $50.00 USD off any 2 hour session. Both people as a couple do not have to have military ID'S only 1 person. Discount is also valid when no other promotional offers are on special and discount is also available for retired military as well.

Q7: What do most women clients enjoy?

A7: The majority of women clients enjoy a sensual massage with stimulation with a combination of Therapeutic, Tantra, Yoni massage and /or the sports therapy massage. The sensual massage is less deeper on pressure and your body and mind will feel refreshed, satisfied as well as uplifted.

With the sports therapy massage: It's more focused to gym-athletic minded people who enjoy stretching within a session in additon to the full body massage this type doesn't include stimulation. Usually women clients like spending time with me because my sessions from what I understand are less rough and more comforting than other masseurs and masseuses in the area.

Q8. What is a Medial Massage and what is it's use?
A8. The medial massage is a device I use that looks like a belt sander in a way with a rubber bottom. The device itself penetrates deep beneath the skins surface alleviating deep tight muscles and tissues. The device when used along the muscle structures of the body are loosened helping the body to feel more relaxed and rejuvinated. Generally I will only use the medial massage for 5 to 15 minutes depending on the persons body size and structure and tightness from what the muscle itself feels like. It feels amazing along the upper mid and lower back as well as the hands, shoulders, neck, thighs and feet, it's a wonderful stress reduction tool.

Q9: Do I offer same day appointments?
A9: Answer is yes provided I do not have something else scheduled. I also accept appointments in advance as well as last minute.

Q10: Is there was anything that a client can do before a session?

A10: I'd recommend a warm to hot shower to help the skin's pores to open up and to allow the essential oils and or lotions/creams be absorbed into the skin that helps in a couple ways. 1 - is the oils, lotions or creams are more easily absorbed into the skin helping the skin itself to be more allustrious and smooth. 2- It helps in the process of the massage when there isn't a preexsisting amount of sweat or dirt build up that can be messy when giving a massage. Many of the products I use are incredible for the skin. Since everyones skin type and tones are different, I use my best judgement on which one would be right for you unless instructed otherwise by you the client. Also let me know if you have any known allergies to skin care products in advance before scheduling your appointment.





Q. How did you decide to get in your line of work?

A. In all honesty, I got into this line of work and field based on what my mother used to tell me, after she came home from working two jobs and her neck, back and shoulders were sore. So I'd give her a massage and she always used to tell me I had magnificent hands. So I took what she said to heart and became a CMT.

Q. If you were advising someone who wanted to get into your profession, what would you suggest?

A. If your looking to get into this field. Make sure your open to differences in people. Make sure you have hand strength and the endurance to go the extra mile for your customers. Being friendly and open minded go a long way in the industry.
