I am a massage therapist with certifications in Esalen-style Swedish and Deep Tissue massage therapies. I am also a Conscious Breathwork coach and a Reiki practitioner.
Therapeutic massage can be used to promote general well-being and enhance self-esteem, while boosting the circulatory and immune systems to benefit blood pressure, circulation, muscle tone, digestion, and skin tone. It has been incorporated into many health systems, and different massage techniques have been developed and integrated into various complementary therapies.

Gathered by Peter from admiring massage clients to share with you.

Peter gives an intuitive massage that typically becomes an exploration for masseur and client alike. While always careful not to cross boundaries, he manages to locate and then, carefully, liberate the tensest parts of a man’s body. He touches on parts we often neglect, in the process repositioning the whole man into a new being. At least it feels that way. You leave his table feeling not only refreshed through and through but also awakened in places you might have neglected in your workout, exercise, or walking regimen, especially during the recent period of isolation. The conversation, if you’re interested, is always stimulating too. Peter has mastered various forms of communication. Bottom line: he really delivers.
