6 testimonials


Deep, thorough, full-body massage therapy from a strong, caring, intuitive, respectful therapist located in midtown New York City. Respectful, very deep and attentive work. You will be satisfied!!

My techniques include deep tissue, Shiatsu, Swedish, stretching and sports massage. I also have many years experience in energy work and am a certified reiki (level 2) practitioner.

My studio is relaxing, welcoming, and comfortable: you will feel refreshed, calm, and healed after a session on my table.

I am very respectful... of boundaries and of my clients’ individual needs. Specific complaints are addressed, and referrals made, if necessary. I happily tailor my varied massage techniques to your personal needs.

Bodywork is a highly personal experience; I will make sure yours suits your needs. You'll find I'm attentive, intuitive and sensitive.

I offer everything from very deep to gentle and relaxing body work, with the option of energy work and meditation coaching.

Please don’t hesitate to inquire further about my work. I'm confident you'll be transformed after a session. I look forward to dissolving those knots!

I’ve never experienced such a delightful massage. You are an extremely attentive, truly gifted masseur. I will be coming back again and again. Thank you.

This is not an exaggeration: best massage I have ever had.

I honestly think he charges too little for what you get. Scooter’s touch is strong, deep and caring. It was almost like I was held in blissful suspension for the duration of the massage. Scooter is also easy to talk to — if you’d like to talk — and makes you feel completely comfortable from the get-go. But also as he makes clear, you can choose to completely disconnect, even fall asleep. He’s smart, too, so you feel safe, hard to explain.

I left his studio feeling physically lighter.

Oh also — the music was perfect. Nothing new agey or nature-soundy. And! He is not a clock-watcher. Toward the end of the session he wasn’t quite finished and asked if it was ok if we went a bit longer (no extra charge!), said something like being thorough is what’s important, not time.

I will be returning for sure.

This guy is the best bodywork guy I’ve ever been to. Like I said to him on the last visit, they don’t make them like him anymore. I’m sure he wouldn’t mind my adding what I said next. You go to these young guys and they might be beautiful but for some reason their massage doesn’t convey the intuitiveness, the confidence, the caring that Scooter’s does. He gives himself to the work completely. He goes deep and also makes you feel safe. He’s kind and easy to talk to. And smart. Go for it.

That was the best massage I’ve ever had. You definitely have a new repeat client. Thanks man. Feel like a million bucks. Amazing.

Scooter is the most professional, attentive massage therapist I’ve ever been to. He goes deep, and doesn’t miss a knot! He is easy to talk to, smart, kind, and respectful. I’m not hiring anyone else as long as he is in NYC. HIRE HIM!!!

This might have been the most thorough and deep massage I've ever had. Reached places I've never had worked, stretched, went dep. I really recommend this man, whether you have someone already or not, give him a try.
