Following a 15 hour international flight and running a 5k, I was in bad shape. Benjamin is an extremely professional therapist that clearly takes pride in his work. I have received massages all over the world but Benjamin is definitely in the top 3. He is pleasant and has a great attitude. He was punctual and ensured throughout the Massage that I was comfortable. Do yourself a favor Bay Area book with Benjamin! PS he is also a certified trainer!Mar 25, 2018Verified
Ben is an outstanding massage therapist and personal trainer! I booked him for a deep tissue massage because I could barely move after all my 5k training. I'm not gonna lie, it was super painful but the next day I felt like a new man! He offered me a free training session at his private gym and I took him up on the offer - one of the best decisions I've ever made. He's super detail oriented and showed me a bunch of exercises to make my knees and hips more stable. I ran a mile without any pain for the first time in YEARS this morning and had to write a review! I'll definitely be training with him more frequently and can't recommend him enough. (And the gym is awesome, there's even a backyard training area!)May 25, 2018Verified
Gotten a few massages before from spas and never have I felt so comfortable in a 1 on 1 environment. I have a lot of knee issues and lower body soreness from workouts, Ben was able to relieve me of troublesome knots that has been bothering me for a while. Didn’t think I’d be as comfortable with a male massage therapist, but he definitely made sure my comfort and needs were listened to and fulfilled. I would definitely recommend Ben to anyone that needs a good massage.Mar 20, 2018
I had been dealing with knots in my upper back for the longest time and couldn't seem to fix it with my foam roller. The massage I received from Ben Lim was very relaxing and I felt a tremendous amount of relief in my upper back muscles! Very detailed oriented so my body felt great all round after the massage. Loved his attention to technique with the draping of the sheets and blanket and how he used it to add in stretches during the massage. He takes into account full consideration of your level of comfort through out the massage by checking in and asking about levels of pressure and if there are any areas of your body he should avoid or if there are any areas he should add more focus on. Not the biggest fan of my feet getting touched so It's great to know that he is a massage therapist who follows morals and ethical boundaries. Doesn't stop there, he's also a certified NASM personal trainer and also does correctional work with his senior clients so he was able to create a personal plan for me so that I know what muscle groups I need to strengthen and what stretches I should be doing. I would highly suggest to anyone that is finding complications with knots, sore areas, or stress levels to call up Ben Lim for his personalized massages!Mar 19, 2018
Benjamin was amazing, very professional, punctual. He made my partner and I feel very comfortable, it was our first time trying in home massages and we will definitely be booking him again; one of the best massages we have had.Apr 8, 2018Verified
