We had wonderful massages poolside in a hot day! I don’t know how he was able to stay cool and provide such great service to all the ladies there. It was relaxing and he was knowledgeable about the body and communicated throughout. Would HIGHLY recommend!

FAQs

  • What is your typical process for working with a new customer?

    The first thing is availability. I am highly requested and try my best to spread time out so appts arent rushed and everyone gets a personal service. Although, new customers are surprised when they say "hey, do you have time today?" and i say "Actually, Im available now! I can be there in 15 mins!" because Im near my phone ready to heal another. Typically when working with any customer, I first try to establish a connection. Trust and communication are the pillars of a great massage. So I may ask "how are you feeling?" or "is there anything bothering you in particular?" or sometimes "do you have any chronic pain or injuries" I like to ask these questions face to face. It may be too difficult or private to talk about on the phone and I am fine with that. My overall goal is too establish a relaxed state that creates an unforgettable experience in mind & body.

  • What types of customers have you worked with?

    I have worked with many different people but a good amount of my clients have kids or work long hrs or both. They have tension in their lowerbacks, necks, heads, feet, hips... you name it! I also work with a lot of athletes and fitness trainers

  • What advice would you give a customer looking to hire a provider in your area of work?

    Make sure you are clear about what you want to achieve in the session whether its relaxation or deep muscle penetration. it's important to be specific and if you're unsure just ask.
