Client Testimonials

Here's what our clients are saying


  • Best massage I have ever had. Knots that have been present in my back for years were gone by the end of the massage. My body felt euphoric.

    I have a frozen shoulder and the work Alex did allowed me to have more mobility in that area, right after the session.

  • Berkeley Deep Sports Massage is a wonderful place to get a serious massage. Flexible hours and a great price.

    Each massage with Alex just keeps getting better! He fixes my neck and my shoulders every time I break myself. He also lets me DJ, which I really appreciate. Alex is great at what he does and I appreciate the interesting conversation, too! All around great experience.

  • One of the best massages I have had. Very knowledgeable, a real technician. Great value.

    The studio is very peaceful and tidy. Parking is very easy in this area and the signage on the side of building was clear, so you can easily get to the back entrance.

  • Im finally taking care of the muscles that are tight from years of bodybuilding.

    Alex was prepared and waiting for me when I arrived early, and we got started before my official appointment time. Alex listened thoughtfully to my description of ailments (back trouble) and then went to work. During the process he providing very clear instructions regarding the interactive parts of the massage (holding slight resistance and then relaxing on cue). I felt immediate relief after the massage, and one week later I'm still feeling the benefits of the session.

  • Alex is very skilled. He was able to identify the real cause of the pain I was feeling and apply the correct technique to decrease it.

    I went to see Alex with lower back pain after injury while performing squats. I shared my problem area with Alex and he spent a good amount of time working on my back. I received a full body massage and I must say that it hurt but my body immediately felt better once the massage was over. I will definitely be going back to Alex and will happily recommend his services to anyone!

I have a lot of chronic computer and stress related neck and shoulder pain, carpal, tennis elbow as well as a literal pain in my butt (left glute and hamstring) from straining my leg in martial arts practice. I've been to a ton of different massage therapists and Alex is an expert. It's almost like getting a very massage-heavy PT session rather than just a regular deep tissue massage. The day after my first session, my neck actually feels longer, as if there's more space between my shoulders and neck. So much relief. My elbow also has reduced pain. I'll be testing out my glute/hamstring today in training. He also lets you choose the music in session and is a really nice person! I'm definitely planning on making another appointment and would highly recommend his services.

Alex was great! Very professional. He did a great job at explaining what he was doing and why. This was my first deep sports massage so I had a lot of questions and he answered each and every single question. He even let me choose what kind of music we listened to. Hands down best massage ever! Go see Alex if you are in need of a real massage.

While the entrance is could be better labeled (specifically the door, the signs leading to the door were fine), the area inside was very nice and open.

Business response:

Thanks for the feedback. I've added some more signs to make it easier for people.

He is EXACTLY what he purports himself to be. Skilled and helpful if you use your body and it gets sore and tight and jacked in general, he can help you be the athlete you want to be. Not too too painful either. Fantastic!

Most deep tissue massages say they're "deep tissue" but they never get as deep into the tissue as I need for my active lifestyle. Alex did a great job doing exactly what I needed! My muscles always are knotted and tight from lifting and Crossfit and I felt so much better after I left. Will def go back!
