I always enjoy my massages from SImeon. He always asks what is bothering me and is sensitive to addressing those needs. It's clear that he has good knowledge of the intricate human body and he has a variety of massage modalities that he draws from which are really useful for getting the tension out of some of the tough spots. He's strong when he needs to be but can also be gentle and smooth and he has some really nice aromatherapy products that he uses. He's a great model of fitness and health himself and its great to absorb his knowledge. He's also just generally a very uplifting person and his joy just kind of seeps in to you through his hands and words and laughter. I'd highly recommend him if you're in need of some acute physical attention or just in the mood for a feel-good, relaxing massage.

Simeon is by far the best and most skilled massage therapist I have ever worked with. His approach and caring extend beyond the time you are on the table. Simeon actively engages every part of your mind and body to help you achieve your best self. He is both receptive and innovative. I cherish each opportunity I have had to work with such a skilled massage therapist and person.

I cannot say enough good things about Shimon! He not only gives a wonderful massage, but he is also kind, accepting, and fun. My bi-weekly sessions keep me healthy for my very physical job and also lift my spirits. Highly recommend.
