Peter's first experience with massage was during a month long workshop at the world renowned Esalen Institute in Big Sur, California.  After spending two years living at the retreat center he moved to Mexico for two years. When he returned to the States, he decided to pursue massage as a full time profession.  He has nearly 1000 hours of education and training.  While his technical ability and skill has grown significantly since his time at Esalen®.  His original teaching have given him a unique foundation upon which to develop his practice. 


He has developed his own signature style which focuses on listening to his clients body and skillfully responding with an intuitive touch.  His deep tissue work focuses more on being patient than trying to force a reaction.  He always works within the comfort zone of the client.  His philosophy is that the muscles will only relax if the mind and body are relaxed.  The deep tissue session are a delicious blend of flowing full body strokes with firm pauses on specific points in the muscles as we wait for a release.  The resulting experience is unlike any other.

REVIEWS for my Bodywork services

Peter's focus on releasing my tight calf. He used all possible actions and was able to finally release the tightness and I am able to walk much better. I always enjoy his advice on stretches and other things I can do to help my calves.

Having moved to Ellicott city only a few months back, I have been scouting the area for a masseuse, on recomendation from my chiropractor. With Red Branch Massage, I found Peter, who was able to blend his professionalism as a masseuse, his non-verbal listening skills, and his courtesy to execute a therapy session which is the best I have ever recieved. Red Branch massage certainly has a customer for life. I certainly recommend their service to anyone, especially anyone sckeptical or new to massage therapy as a recipient.

Peter has fabulous hands. He is very strong yet very gentile. I was having lower back pain for a week before this visit. Peter spent some extra time working on my lower back. 6 days later and I'm still having no lower back pain. I visit Peter monthly and highly recommend him.

This was a wonderful experience. I went onto Yelp to find a massage therapist after getting rear ended in a car accident and hoping for some relief feeling 'jostled' out of my body. Peter provided an incredible massage and I hope to go back to his practice very soon. As a woman I rarely see men massage therapists and I'm really glad I did. I felt totally safe and supported and his work was a great combination of very intuitive and science-y (I got to see the tablet with the muscle map after!).

I never want to leave. Peter is excellent, the space is so relaxing, the scents, the ambiance, the sounds are just perfect.

Peter is the best! Before he starts, he always takes the time to find out what you need from the session and does his best to meet your needs. Peter also checks in with me periodically during the massage to make sure he is using the right pressure. The room is very nice and the massage bed is comfortable. I always feel relaxed. Peter is a great person, and a very professional and fantastic massage therapist!
