"Alexander was phenomenal. I went to him for a deep tissue massage to address some tightness that had arisen from my yoga practice. He was very friendly and professional, and his space was quiet and clean. Per his advisory, the massage was definitely not gentle, but it was deeply healing. He always made a point to coach me through moments where I was experiencing heightened discomfort due to built-up tension. I was particularly impressed with how sensitive he was to the slightest movements within different muscle groups (even when I wasn't aware of them myself).
We chatted for about 10 minutes afterward, and I was impressed with his thoughtfulness. He explained that we often carry tightness and pain in certain areas as manifestation of experiences and feelings. He encouraged me to 1) notice what feels different after bodywork and 2) consider what may have caused it. Many bodyworkers speak to the psychosomatic nature of muscle tension, but our conversation was particularly enlightening for me. His candor and kindness really made the experience for me.
Do yourself a favor and book a session with Alex!"
