Therapeutic Massage

I am a Licensed Massage Therapist with 10 years of experience. For 5 of those years I worked at 3 major Resorts in the Riviera Maya region of Mexico. My approach to massage is a holistic approach which seeks to balance mind, body and soul. I promise that you will have an unparalleled experience once you have a massage from me. I combine many different techniques ( Swedish, Deep Tissue, Shiatsu, Sport) in all my massages.

Saul was kind and professional. He took time to talk, ask and listen about what areas of my back were bothering me. I felt amazing afterwards. My back has bothered me for so long it was actually awkward not to have the pain I am use too. To say the least I am looking forward to my next session in a couple of weeks.

Saul was professional and skillful. He relieved muscles that have been so tight for month with no relief from stretching or exercising. I have been looking for a massage therapist with a technique and understanding of my extremely stressed out muscles. Saul gave me an educated explanation of what he recommends I need going further. Other massage therapists I have been through never took the time to help me resolve my muscles issues like this. This was my first visit with Saul, I am now purchasing a multi-visit package.

Saul is a very professional man with a warm and comforting personality. The whole place was pristinely clean; the reception area, massage room and bathroom were spotless and tidy. It was clear that Saul treats his business and his clients with extreme care. I found the massage room to be beautifully made up, warm and relaxing, and I enjoyed just being in the space. Saul was kind and patient and contentious toward me, and gave me a beautiful massage for 90 minutes. I would (and will) absolutely return again.

Saul, the origin of his name says it all... "asked for or prayed for". I have been actively looking for a new massage therapist for 2 years... been to some ok therapists (nothing special), some bad therapists (run as fast as you can), a few that I went to a few times, they were good but I knew something was missing... Then I finally met Saul, he asks the right questions, listens to what you say, tunes in to your body and knows exactly what to do to fix it... my first visit I warned Saul that my shoulder blades were really tight and need help in that area. In that 1 visit he was able to unlock my shoulder blades omg, no one has been able to do this in 1 visit. He showed me some stretches to do to help me and explain that my chest muscles were tight causing the problem. After my first visit I bought a 5 pack and have not looked back. Saul is a caring soul, who gives his clients 110% and helps them in anyway he can. I can not say enough good things about him... and without any reservation highly recommend Saul for his massage therapy skills. Happy client.

I was extremely impressed with all still at therapeutic massage. It had been about a year since we left at five. I was so very relaxed and felt wonderful all day.
