April 20, 2024 in Los Angeles, CA (in-studio)

Hisham is wonderful! He gave me the deep pressure I needed, as I was very tight, but his presence is so lovely and gentle. I could really escape and relax, while getting a massage that was truly productive in terms of recovery. It’s worth it to make him a regular part of my self-care routine.

What a great massage! Hisham is the real deal. First, he is a great communicator - from timely text messages to asking me what I need before the treatment began. Second,
his studio is extremely clean and hygienic. Hisham also knows how to blend effective therapy, deep pressure and beneficial stretching, with an oasis for the spirit and mind. Finally, he is a warm, respectful, and
kind person. You will be in special hands!

I recently had the pleasure of booking a massage with Hisham and I couldn't be more happier with the experience. From the moment I arrived, I felt welcomed and at ease, thanks to Hisham's warm demeanor and inviting studio space.

The atmosphere in his studio was serene, with soothing music playing softly in the background and essential oils filling the air. Hisham took the time to discuss my preferences and any specific areas of concern before beginning the session, which I appreciated.

Hisham's skill and expertise were evident from the start. He employed a variety of techniques, seamlessly transitioning from deep tissue work to more gentle, relaxing strokes. His intuitive touch allowed him to hone in on my problem areas, releasing tension and providing much-needed relief.

Throughout the session, Hisham maintained open communication, regularly checking in to ensure I was comfortable with the pressure and technique. His professionalism and genuine care for my well-being made me feel truly taken care of, and I was able to fully relax and enjoy the massage.

If you are in need of a high-quality, transformative massage experience, look no further than Hisham.

I was most fortunate to have met Hisham during his recent visit to San Francisco. I missed Hisham from his last visit and he was committed to contacting me during this trip. He is a beautiful man of trust and integrity and that's the true human in him. As the massage therapist, his skills, care and focus for the client in his presence is taken into a sense of bliss only can be described that my mind, body and soul were all being attended to in the most professional, caring, compassionate means possible. Thank you Hisham for all that you do to bring tranquility, balance and bliss to all those fortunate enough to be in your care, kindness and touch.

This is my third massage experience with Hisham and he ranks in the top 5 of mine, and I have had dozens of good ones over many years of enjoying the talents of some wonderful providers over time all over the world.

Hisham is very skilled in massage, no question. He asks for feedback and adjusts accordingly. He has a great touch and works the areas with skill and the intensity requested. He is generous with his time, and there was no clock watching or rushing. His apartment is well located, clean, pleasant, nicely equipped and has easy parking. He has an extra wide heated massage table which is very comfortable.

The real gem though is the person who provides the massage. He is kind, converses easily, is really engaging and listens well and responds.

He is handsome to the point of being a knockout and has a beautiful and impressive body, which he uses with skill and with generosity about touch. But most admirable, he is a person of quality, of ethics and honesty, and yet is humble and self effacing so that you feel totally relaxed.

A lucky find. I recommend this person with absolutely no reservations … he is the real deal. He’s super fast at replying to messages and made it a breeze to book with him.

It's easy to understand why the reviews are so positive! I plan on returning and hope to book another appointment very very soon.

Hisham’s massage is a rare combo of expert knowledge of the body and great calming energy. He mixes stretching with Swedish and deep massage technique to leave your body invigorated and relieved of all the stress you arrived with. He is quick to respond to appointment inquiries and respects the time of his clients. Highly recommend.

From the minute you step into Hisham’s workspace to the moment you leave, you feel a sense of welcoming and calm. His massage is excellent … tending to your specific needs while incorporating his years of experience. Highly recommend!
