Client Testimonials

Here's what our clients are saying


  • Michael is an incredible massage therapist and I am so thankful for the work he does! I highly recommend

    It really helped me out, Michael was knowledgeable and explained how to fix some of my back problems. Can’t wait to book another appointment

  • Absolutely wonderful time at my first professional massage. I felt like jello (in a good way) for the next day. I enjoyed Michael's jazz music and knowledge of great jazz musicians. While I was happy with the ambiance, it may be helpful to poll the customer beforehand what kind of ambiance they want. There were moments when I was thinking meditative music would help me relax even more but ultimately I was very happy. 9.5/10 experience!

  • Excellent massage.

    There was only one problem it wasn't long enough, great job Michael

  • Michael is amazing! Plain and simple.

    Very enjoyable experience. I will definitely plan on booking more in the future.

  • Perfect treatment for stress and sport sore muscles

    Michael knows how to provide the right massage for any condition. He is skillful and very knowledgeable.

This was a very nice and recuperating session. Michael was professional, flexible, and communicative. His ability to take on multiple different massage techniques for my wife and I on the same day was excellent and very much appreciated. I left feeling reset and ready to carry my therapy throughout the day. Michael was personal and open to conversation and answering questions. He made us feel comfortable and welcome.

I have never had a prenatal massage and it was just perfect. We were visiting Bishop for our babymoon, or final vacation before our baby comes. Michael was gentle and respectful. He was also very understanding of the mechanics of the pregnant body and I was very much put at ease. Thank you Michael for such a lovely hour. It really made our trip that much better!

I left with an overall feeling of calm. Michael worked on my shoulder enough to help with the discomfort I had previously been feeling and the next couple days my muscles were just a bit sore, telling me I got a great massage without overdoing the pressure. Thanks! I will definitely be visiting again.

WOW! This is probably the best massage I have ever gotten. I am a mom, and Rarely... rarely take time for myself. Michael asked what I wanted to get out of my massage. I let him know I wanted to relax, and he took it from there. He led me through some very easy relaxing meditation as he started to release the tension throughout my body,and whenever I would get distracted (I am a mom after all) his breath would bring me back to my own. The pressure was spot on, as was the temperature ( he was able to adjust the massage table to the temperature of my liking ) I never felt exposed or self-conscious during my massage, he kept me well covered, and I was able to focus on relaxation rather than my hips. His massage oil/lotion was wonderful, it had a very light relaxing fragrance, but not overpowering. Wonderful experience. I highly recommend Michael. if you aren't sure what to get your loved one for the holidays, especially those hard to buy for moms, take my advise, and get them a massage!!! it is really is a gift that will leave them feeling better for a long time, and allow them to take some time for themselves (something this mom is always struggling with)

I found Michael on line when I was visiting Bishop. Of course, he turned out to be exactly what I needed. I have severe chronic pain from fibromyalgia and herniated discs in my neck. He is an amazing guy, compassionate and caring. In the short time I saw him, he made my pain bearable. When I didn't have hope, he actually made me believe that there is a light at the end of the tunnel. Michael has chosen the perfect profession and he is an amazing therapist. I can't say enough about this guy. Love, love, love him. Thought about moving to Bishop just for him.
