Thanks for a wonderful massage! I had the best night's sleep after the massage that I've had in a while!

I loved your expertise, knowledge, and skill in treatment. From my initial meeting where you immediately explained the four muscles that make up the rotator cuff, I knew I was in good hands. Your hands are very gifted to reaching the right places and applying the right amount of pressure and massage to ease the tension. It was absolutely the best massage I have ever had, very targeted to my condition . I look forward to more sessions with you, Peter. You are the Best! Thank You! Gina

I particularly like the attention to detail and the conversation about habits and lifestyles.

I had tried many different massage therapists, and while some were better than others, I never had a bad massage. Then I had the opportunity to see Peter, and no one else compares. He is a master at his craft, and is a warm, friendly personality while remaining completely professional.

The massages are amazing. I feel light and energized with each one. Peter is warm, welcoming and makes me feel completely comfortable.

Peter paid closer attention to both my description of problem areas and to how my muscles actually felt than any other therapist I've worked with. He tried to address the root causes of tension and offered suggestions for other changes I could make to prevent future or recurrent symptoms. He is a very thoughtful, perceptive person, and was completely professional.

Peter is an amazing massage therapist! He truly has a gift that allows him to carefully "listen" to all your aches and pains then melt them away. Best massage therapist in town.

I forgot to tell you--I really liked the music, too!!!

Best yet !!
by Pam E. on Oct 04
Really appreciated the fact that you took the time to ask about any physical issues prior to the massage. Those issues were addressed and this was by far the best massage I've ever had.

Wonderful massage. The 90 minutes was so relaxing and exactly what I needed to help relax my tight muscles. I will definitely be back for another massage!!

The massage session was Excellent. I left feeling very relaxed and my muscles tension gone. The room had great ambiance, just the occasional talking heard in the hallway. Overall, it was fantastic!

Peter is a wonderful practitioner, all around. He communicates clearly, listens deeply and his technique is amazing.
by Rob W. on Sep 17
Peter is knowledgable and does his thing- he is quiet and intuitive and lets himself understand what is happening and knows how to fix it. Massage to me is health care and Peter is a health care professional. I am glad to know him and benefit from his work. I drive 45 minutes each way but he is worth it.

All the things.
by Marc K. on Aug 30
Peter was quite fantastic and very calming in his presentation and approach to the message. It was my first message in quite a few years. I opted for deep tissue which was a bit intense for me but didn't say anything as I was thinking "no pain no gain". I will definitely keep coming back but I think I'll go for the Swedish Style for a while and work my way back into the deep tissue. Thank you Peter.
by Cristina G. on Aug 30
Peter is very intuitive and does an excellent job. My stiff and aching jaw from teeth grinding and tight and sore neck feel amazing now!
by karen f. on Aug 16
I liked Peter's style. He's very friendly and respectful. He used a lot of interesting ways of connecting strokes and was creative rather than a "cookie cutter" massage...Very lovely.

Was I ever lucky that a friend referred me to Peter. So far I’ve had 3 of a 5 session loyalty pack, which is an amazing deal given his professional experience and talent. Each time I find myself transported into a deeply relaxed, nearly meditative state. Peter has a knack for first setting a person at ease, both mentally and physically, and then he calmly gets to work releasing tension-- he managed to gently unwind some long-held knots in my back that no other massage therapist has ever addressed. After a session, I go about my day feeling rather invincible and full of energy but also just plain happy. Isn't the world a beautiful place when your body is truly relaxed?! A note on location: Red Branch Massage is tucked away in a quiet corporate complex inside a pilates studio. Super convenient to both Rte 29 & 100 with plenty of parking. The room is perfect-- a traditional massage space with a spa-like ambience. All in all, Peter has that rare combination of a genuine intellectual passion for human anatomy but also a deeply intuitive physical touch. It’s a gift! Plus, he tailors each session to your needs in a gentle and kind-hearted manner. An utmost professional. I really am lucky to be a client!

Everything about my experience was impeccable. Peter is extremely skilled, and very attuned to his clients' individual needs. He was very welcoming, and professional and insightful from start to finish. I walked out feeling a lightness and ease in my body that I can't remember experiencing prior-- almost as if I was given a new body to walk around in for a while. Very, very thankful. Will be back.

I really enjoyed my 90 minute custom massage. Peter is a master at deep tissue massages. I have some health challenges that he is able to masterfully work with. When done I feel fantastic.

Peter knew exactly how to pinpoint my complaint and help to release it. I had been having neck pain for several weeks and after a session with him, I felt so much better! It was amazing. He is very professional and does everything to make the session as comfortable as possible. I highly recommend Peter for bodywork.
