About Us

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 Esalen training has 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 with...

Peter is awesome! Great personality and passionate about his work . He took the time to discuss what I wanted to get out of the massage, prior to beginning and really focused on my areas of concern. My lower back felt better and I had greater mobility than when I entered! He provided tips on how to get more benefits from the massage at home and a suggestion for my knee that was very helpful. Would definitely recommend his services to friends & family or anyone looking for a great massage therapist!

I would definitely consider massage to be Peter's area of expertise. Before the session began, he took the time to get a true understanding of my physical limitations/ issues and what I was hoping to gain from my experience with him. Throughout the massage he explained what he was noticing as well as what he was doing and the purpose of it (per my request). It was a fantastic experience all around and I certainly intend to see him again!

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

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 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.

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.
