I am a queer male massage therapist in the West Ridge neighborhood on the north side of Chicago. I offer holistic massage specializing in your needs. I am trained in many techniques, which affords me numerous talents for your benefit.
If you have questions, please call or text me. Give me a name when texting so I know how to address you. If you call and DON’T leave a message, you WON’T get a callback. Sorry for the... inconvenience, but I need the message, so I know to call you back.
A note on my fees and hours, I have a set schedule. I will work outside of said schedule for a fee. My days off are Tuesday and Thursday. To see you these days is an added $100. To see you before or after my regular hours on workdays is an added $50. I do this because I understand that my hours may not work for everyone, and I would like to help as many people as possible while still respecting my free time.

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

April 11, 2022 in Chicago, IL (mobile)

As a runner and triathlete, recovery is an integral part of training, and Niko played an essential role in patching me up. Over three-plus years, I saw them grow and evolve as a massage therapist. They looked at the symptoms of my tight and sore muscles and the cause. Because of their work, I successfully finished multiple triathlons (including an Ironman), marathons, and even a couple of Disney Dopey Challenges (5k, 10k, a half and full marathon in consecutive days) with few problems. When I started to suffer upper back and lower neck pain from sitting at a computer all day, they took it on as a challenge to figure out how to alleviate that pain on top of dealing with my usual workout-related stuff. They were relentless in incorporating new techniques (such as cupping, hot stones, and massage guns) to find what worked best to address my pains and make the most of our sessions. Don’t be shy about verbally telling them if pressure is too much or not enough, especially if you’re a new client. They have no problems adjusting to meet your needs.
