Esalen Massage techniques is first and foremost-the glue that holds my whole routine together, but I employ Swedish, Deep Tissue, Myo-Fascial Release, Acupressure, Shiatsu and Thai modalities.... In addition, I offer Hot Stone, Bamboo Fusion and Raindrop Therapy on request...

If we've met, had a session already or are acquainted-you can come to my favorite location, and save a few shekkels, I have a custom table, heated pad, koifish and Pandora. You can grab a shower and a snack before you go. -The choices are yours and I do trades w/ fellow therapists and trades-people! Namaste! -(Also cell # above.)

OUTCALL- (to your home):I can come to YOU if you are a shut-in, sedentary, ill or agouraphobic, or have a special event such as a party, or want a romantic couples home massage in a secluded locale. I even do Open Houses for realtors now! Remember MASSAGE IS THE NEW CLOSING GIFT! -

About him

As a 5 -year (and counting) cancer-survivor, I experienced first-hand the power of an accomplished massage therapist and their curative effect. My first session with a young man named Clarence changed me forever, and re-affirmed my calling! To that end, I am driven to provide the same quality experience and focus on the clients needs first: this is not rhetoric, but more of a vision statement and code to work... by. I taught public schools for almost 30 years and I believe that education is for all, to that end, I sit on several advisory committees for higher level learning (massage schools) and plan to migrate to the classroom soon myself. The reciprocity that I experience with my client is a very special relationship and dynamic that I value highly...
After attending an extensive retreat and workshop at the Esalen Institute in Big Sur, I am forever grateful (and changed) by the beauty, kindness and honesty experienced there. As a result, my entire practice has been "Esalenized"-which translates to: slower, more focused and hopefully, more effective and gratifying to all parties...I had the opportunity recently to work at the Glen Ivy Resort, in Corona, CA and found the energy there to be fairly palpable...
(Currently I am working as a independent-contractor for Zeel-Massage on Demand.)

Steve is an excellent massage therapist, broadly trained, versatile, and very attuned to the individual's needs. He has a quiet, thoughtful presence and excellent technique. He has been flexible about scheduling, which is sometimes difficult for us, and we feel fortunate to have found him.

By Vanessa in Baldwin Park, CA

Steve was very calm in explaining every aspect of the massage, and i really liked that. He constantly asked if the pressure was fine, if any area needed more concentration etc. The cream had very relaxing scents and felt great on my skin. I really liked that I was not in pain after the massage, but complete relaxation. Steve's massage really offered relief to my hands which hurt from constant computer usage.

I was recently rear-ended on the freeway. I wasn't badly hurt but I had stiffness in my neck and shoulders. I went to my chiropractor for an adjustment, which helped. He recommended that I also receive massage therapy. He referred me to Steve. After one session with Steve, I felt so much better. It was really amazing. I didn't think I would see such an improvement after only one treatment. Steve was very accomodating with his schedule and location. He was truly interested in healing me and not just in making a few bucks. He took the time to understand what was ailing me and designed his treatment accordingly. He is really a great guy and the atmosphere was comfortable and inviting. I can't wait for my next appointment, I'm sure that I will again see improvement in my physical health. Trust and a feeling of comfort are important when choosing a massage therapist. I'm sure that even after I have I fully recovered from my injury, I will continue to see Steve on a regular basis.

By Sharon in Placentia, CA

My husband and I had a couples massage with Steve and Carmen at La Vida. We both had a good experience, but mine was GREAT! Steve was very professional and very knowledgeable. I told him about a shoulder impingement issue but not about a hip issue. Without me telling him, he was able to find the problem with my hip and did a deep tissue massage. I walked out with both my shoulder and hip feeling much better. I came in with a slight limp and left without one! I loved that Steve had just returned from some time spent at a spa in Big Sur where he learned some new techniques and was very conscientious about asking if I was comfortable with what he was doing. I loved every minute!! Thanks Steve!!

By Jonathan in Pasadena, CA

Steve is one of the most enthusiastic and dedicated massage therapists that I have ever met (and being a massage therapist myself, that's saying a lot). He brings a genuine healing spirit, a wide breadth of techniques, and touch that ranges from gentle to deep depending on what is needed and preferred. My session with him was thorough and left me feeling deeply relaxed and cared for. It is rare to find a practitioner who is so invested in the work - highly recommended.

By Glenn S. in San Dimas, CA

My experience may be of interest to any guys who may be wary of having a guy give another guy a massage(It's a guy thing). My wife gave me a half hour session with Steve as a birthday gift. I had never been massaged before, and did not know what to expect. Steve set me at ease right away with his friendly manner and professional interest in my personal health, as he tried to determine how he could best apply his skills to the task of giving me the most benefit from our session. As he worked on areas from which I suffered tension and pain, he would adjust pressure to my liking, never causing me any discomfort. I felt relaxed and stress free during and long after our session. If you've never had massage therapy before, you couldn't find a better provider than Steve.

Steve does amazing work! He helped me out with a medical condition I suffer with every so often. ( MS ) The touch I need varies depending on the flare up. From very gentle to deep tissue. The modalities he incorporates are a nice touch that gives Steve's massage a signature touch. Thanks for being a wonderful LMT.
