Experience a relaxing massage in the safety and comfort of your home, office, or hotel.

Thank you for taking the time to learn about my bodywork. In the last 15 years, my certified professional experience in Swedish, sports, deep-tissue, and full-body massage has grown and evolved immensely.

Today I work with pro athletes, high-profile clients, referrals from doctors, and physical therapists, mainly in Laguna Beach, California. I treat chronic pain, injuries, and general relaxation.

I enjoy working with all ages... & body types; women, men, and couples are welcome to experience a fantastic massage & assisted stretching session with me.

My work is specific, deep, highly skilled, and caring. Clients describe my sessions as the complete package: a professional, intuitive, and deeply therapeutic experience with a well-spoken, clean, healthy masseur.

Sessions combine a rare blend of therapeutic expertise and multiple bodywork styles to ease all your tension. I encourage you to be open and specific about what you would like in a session, and I listen carefully and always respect boundaries.

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

Absolutely the best massage treatment I've had. Michael's skill in reading your body and connecting to your mind is unbelievable. He is well educated in all faceted dynamics of our bodies, mind, and soul. His conversation was enlightening and helpful in your body physically releasing the knots away. Even without his fascinating insight, his physical massage technique alone is outstanding.

My massage with Michael was terrific. Michael took good care of me and was very thorough. I had a very tight shoulder and upper back, and he gave extra attention to those problem areas. He took his time and gave me the care I needed. I highly recommend Michael if you're looking for a massage for either relaxation or muscle tension relief. Thank you so much, Michael!

Michael is an experience I strongly recommend discovering!

He went above and beyond in helping me orchestrate a birthday surprise for my husband.

Michael did our couples massage at our Newport Beach home. My husband had a fantastic massage and hasn't stopped talking about how great it was. I had never felt so relieved and this good after a massage; simply remarkable.

Saw Michael for a much-needed deep tissue massage. Michael is phenomenal; he knew all the right spots to hit while allowing me to let go and melt away. Ensured to take his time in problem areas and even went overtime to ensure all desired areas were handled. I couldn't recommend him enough. Always look forward to my weekly massages with him.

I've been getting two massages a week from Michael for the last two years, and each time was a fantastic experience. I love the attention to detail and professionalism that Michael has always provided me.

Highly recommend him -- Skilled, I'm very picky about how I want my deep tissue massage done, and he delivered! I appreciated that Michael genuinely cared about what areas of my body needed the most work and what type of pressure I preferred. I think this is very important since it allows the necessary communication between you and your massage therapist.

Truly thankful to have Michael in my life.

On a scale of 1-10, Michael, my Massage Therapist for over 7 years, is a 12 in just about every category. He is highly skilled, sensitive to his client's needs, yet always appropriate. Beyond that, Michael is a great conversationalist who can make the most shy person feel comfortable, and yet he is very willing to simply give a great massage in silence. As someone who has needed, and received Massage for almost 30 years, both in this country and abroad, I've never met a better
