Alternative Healing

For a girls night I booked w/Christopher and didn’t really expect much as I have been to so many places trying to find a descent massage therapist that doesn’t just RUB my SKIN... well my search ended when Christopher came around... I was so impressed that I booked for the following weekend for my husband who is a runner and complains about muscles pain specially his legs... he was amazed about the results and how he felt after his session, we both got worked on. Christopher is more than just amazing therapist... he’s the BEST, after 20years getting massages by some average therapist I finally found “la creme de la creme” (The best of the best). He doesn’t time himself, focus on your body and check on you to see if you are doing well... this is what we call a professional therapist. Definitely, we are his regular clients from now on.

This was one of the best massages I have ever had and definitely the most unique. Christopher took a lot of time first to talk to me to understand my concerns before actually starting the massage. He is serious when he says that he doesn’t time himself. He was with me for over 2 1/2 hours and he still charged me his regular fee. He is kind, compassionate, and intuitive. His touch was firm and therapeutic but also gentle and loving. That night I had the best night sleep I’ve had in a long time and the next day I had one of the best meditations I’ve ever had. My body and spirit felt light and uplifted.

I have had dozens of massages within the u.s. and around the world from sketchy looking massage parlors to prestigious resorts. My experience was hands down the best I have ever had, time was taken to review my concerns and all areas addressed, even better, I left feeing great! Chris is the real deal, don’t waste your time anywhere else with-ought giving him a try.

Chris more than lived up to the reviews posted on his profile and if the stars went above 5 he’d definitely have a 10! I wish my vocabulary was more extensive so that I could use descriptive words that would give his skills and ability the level of praise they deserve. Chris responded to all my inquiries in a more than timely manner, he was very accommodating with regards to scheduling and then when I had to reschedule. I greatly appreciated the level of professionalism and compassion that was maintained while I connected to some deep seeded pain/issues that were brought about thru the massage process and Chris helping me to connect with my breath and how I felt with the breath and in the moment. He was kind, supportive, and understanding during a moment of what I saw as weakness and for me was embarrassing. Words can not express how grateful I am for his intuitiveness and his ability to help me in that moment without me feeling even more embarrassed. I definitely would recommend him to anyone in need of some stress relief and any chronic pain triggers that need working. I can’t wait to make another apt.

Chris was excellent! Very professional, punctual, and the ladies he worked on raved about their massages. Will definitely be booking with him again.

FAQs

  • What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?

    I don't charge by the hour or minute because everyone needs are different and I don't like looking at the time, or having to pace myself unless the client has a specific time they need. I charge by the session, when i'm done i'm done, whether it takes one hour or two hours, its one flat fee. I do give discounts for more than one person and parties at one location as well as other discounts.

  • What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?

    Graduate of Southern California school of Massage 2003. Background , Mentoring and Training in Shiatsu/Acupressure.
