Client Testimonials

Here's what our clients are saying


  • Apolo uses his hands with intuition and precision. I was very receptive and completely comfortable and relaxed the entire massage. With Apolo's added creativity you can trust to receive all his attention and possibly the best massage you will ever have.. Massage therapy is his passion and his caring & empathetic attitude shines through brightly, all while holding a safe space for energy work. I feel restored, balanced and more connected to my internal and external body. Thank you Apolo, you are a unique gift to the world of healing and massage!

    Javier is a gifted, compassionate healing artist. He has the ability to deeply listen with his hands and applying a very personal touch that was very therapeutic and healing. As a bodyworker my self I've received many massages and by far he stands out one of the tops. The office is located in a beautiful serene place, away from the noise with plenty of parking. Once I walked in he greeted me and went to the massage room. I loved the space and energy of the entire facility, very clean, fresh, welcoming and safe. His space is also very welcoming and peaceful. After telling him a whole story of how I was feeling at the moment he was very intuitive in selecting a music that made the session special. So a deep sense of intuition and really listening to my underling mood that was able for him to pick up and execute through his work and art. A true gift and a natural. My body, mind and soul felt rejuvenated, cleansed and touched with compassion after the session and also in a therapeutic level, my aches and pains vanished and increasing range of motion. I am very grateful to have received from an amazing therapist that is making a healing loving ripple for every person he touches.

  • I loved my massage from Javier! He was intuitive and present with his touch, checking in with me when he noticed if there needed to be any adjustments. He has a very comforting presence and I trusted his abilities. He addressed every part I asked him to and did not go over-time. I felt so relaxed and grateful for the time spent with him, it made the rest of my day even better. Best way to start my morning thats for sure.

    My session with Javi was wonderful and everything I could have asked for. He asked me about my well-being and what I wanted from the massage and how I wanted to feel after. I felt safe to tell him what was going on physically and emotionally. I had been feeling irritable for days before the massage, and after receiving his touch and presence I felt back to my normal state of happiness and peace. The physical massage was lovely as well, very thorough, excellent pressure, meeting my edge but not going past it, and addressing all areas of concern I had mentioned and then some. His oils/lotions he used on my skin smelled so good. He even had dark chocolate on his desk for after! Hands down one of the best massage experiences I’ve had. So grateful.

  • Javier has a very sensitive touch and is totally in tune with his patients' requests. All in all it was a wonderful experience!

    Very targeted massage - the therapist took the time to talk and inquire about areas of particular discomfort, tension, or soreness, ultimately providing a very effective and productive massage.

  • Really enjoyed the first in-house massage. Looking forward to a time maybe not so busy after the massage to recoup. Leg cramps diminished on last few hot days when it usually flares due to dehydration and may well be due to the session.

    You're great! Thank you so much!!

  • Loved my experience.

    Javier is an incredible massage therapist. Before I went in for my massage, he sat me down and thoroughly asked me if I had any specific concerns or areas I would like for him to work on. I told him I sometimes suffered from hip pain and was currently harboring a terrible migraine. Not only did he focus on healing those specific areas for a great amount of time, he also dedicated time to other connected parts of my body that were incredibly beneficial. I also must mention that both my body and mind felt totally relaxed after the massage. He even managed to eliminate my migraine! Javier is not a standard massage therapist. Not only is his technique exceptional; he exudes a wonderful energy that is felt before, during, and after the massage. It is evident from start to finish that Javier truly cares about your well being and wants the best for you and your body.

Javier gave me his full attention. His knowledge of kinesiology and relating to my movement activities made me feel in good hands. Intuitive! Javier is very professional. I will be back!

I thought Javier was very professional and also extremely caring and sensitive, at the same time. I felt heard and understood as to what I was needing, and i also felt like Javier asked the right questions to get even more out of my time with him. It felt like Javier was also very in tune with where to do the body work intuitively and like I didn't need to know everything that was going on beforehand. This is important to me, as I don't always know what I need, just that I need a little TLC. I appreciate how gentle he was and applied the perfect amount of pressure. I am thankful for my time with him and wish him the best success.

Javier is incredibly talented and intuitive when it comes to giving your body exactly the massage it needs in that moment. My most recent massage with him addressed the aches commonly associated with a 40-hour work week as well as the rehabilitation needed from my running and strength-training routine. I have been to many massage therapists in my life and he is hands down one of the best in the industry.

Javier is a well-rounded, creative, and attentive therapist. My entire experience felt like artistry from the intake to outtake. During the intake, Javier was clear in his questions and communication, and I felt that he listened to everything I said with great presence. During the massage, his communication was just the right amount for me. I felt engaged and empowered in my own body with the work, as he encouraged me to notice my experience. His bodywork addressed all the needs I mentioned- to feel grounded and uplifted at the same time. His pace and pressure was perfectly aligned with what my body and spirit was wanting, and he was actively engaged in his presence and communication. I felt that so clearly through his touch and communication. After the massage I shared all these things and he humbly expressed his thanks, which is another aspect I admire in true artists of their craft- expressing their gift in a humble way, forming a relationship with the client. I highly recommend receiving work with Javier. I have every guarantee he will work with and be present with you in the place you are at and want to be, sharing his communication and therapeutic touch in a way with great integrity!
