Like: - Professional - EXCELLENT massage, knew what he was doing, focused well, and allocated the time well to ensure all main areas were addressed - Good music taste - Good conversation, but didn't make it feel like we had to talk the whole time
by Anonymous on Jan 02
Alex found where my anxiety lives in my largest muscles and chased it out. It was a really good massage - not relaxing in the moment in the way of some massages, but when I left, my tensest muscles felt fundamentally different, and so did I. If your muscles are habitually all tensed up and you'd like them not to be, go see Alex (or anyone here - I've had good experiences every time).

I booked a massage as soon as my plane landed in Oakland. Heading into the last week of tour and after a long day of travel, I figured I could use a deep tissue massage to relieve these stressed out muscles fatigued from the repetitive task of playing a show every night and traveling every day. I thought I was gonna get a Deep Tissue Sports Massage as the name of the place suggests. I wanted to hurt a little the next day so my muscles could actually recover enough to give me the strength to play this show again this week. What I got was an expensive 90-minute massage with some okay moments but overall disappointing results. I should be at least a little sore, but now I'm just tense again and kicking myself for spending a cool $245 on an ok massage. I asked my therapist a few times to go deeper, and though he affirmed the request, he never did. He was nice, but I’d never see him again..The only thing memorable about this massage is how much I paid for it.
by soy on Nov 12
This may sound weird, but I think Adam has the best massage hands. They are meaty paws - really strong but also very subtle. I've had very good massages from people with skinny small hands, but nothing feels as super great as meaty strong hands. I went in because I fell on my head doing a dive roll off a mini trampoline. After the massage, I felt pretty wiped out and sore for a day, but 2 days later my neck is feeling good. The only negative was that it was my first time with him, and he didn't introduce himself. No big deal though - he was still really kind and laid back and knowledgable - I felt comfortable and will go back for sure.
by Terry on Oct 18
Very knowledgeable and experienced..thanks Adam!

a couple of visits to Adam have helped me tremendously with a some shoulder and hip issues. I will be returning regularly for maintenance.

Rubi's massages are 5-star! But, I have to remove one star, and hesitate returning because the laundry detergent that's used to launder the linens used for the table is EXTREMELY pungent to me, and I'm not even the most odor-sensitive person I know. It gives me a headache while I'm there and I can still smell it on my skin and clothes long after I leave. It's a shame because I really like Rubi and her work, but the smell of the detergent is just too overwhelming. Hope this is helpful!

The first massage I had with Bryon in April was outstanding. I walked in with debilitating neck spasms, afraid to move. After the session and Byron’s strong and intuitive technique I knew I was on my way to a quick recovery. The second massage in June paled in comparison. He seemed a bit rushed and inattentive.

I am thrilled to have found a local massage therapist who provides intentional and focused work in specific areas where I need it. BDSM is building a team with like-minded approaches. Both my wife and I plan on being regulars. Five stars for the work. Four stars for ambience - while it's the massage that's important, and I'm not that interested in the frills, the lobby is a bit industrial and might put a more welcoming face forward with a few plants or other decoration.

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.

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.

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!

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.

we did not have a massage so this does not apply. For some reason the stars went through anyway but I did not rate a massage because we received coaching.

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!

My neck and shoulders were hurting so much I could not fully turn my head. In a short session that all got take care of. I walked out feeling better than I had before I hurt myself. I'm not sure how he did it, but I know I will go back.
