Byron is a strong and thorough therapist who shows care for his patients/clients. It was easy to schedule and attend a deep tissue sports therapy massage. I am an avid cyclist and ride a lot about 150 miles a week, and need bi-monthly body tune-ups, for this I see Byron... and I highly recommend this specialist to anyone, especially athletes.

Went in for a massage because I've been having back problems from mountain climbing and let me tell you that this was the best experience and massage that you can get. Byron is knowledgeable and works the areas you specifically need loosened and adjusted. I came out feeling very relieved and Byron even took time to teach me some stretches and other methods that will help me for the future. I will definitely be back soon and recommend to anyone!

I went to see Byron after receiving a gift certificate. He treated my plantar faciitis and also an ankle in which I had a previous surgery on. He did a remarkable job treating these injuries! I came in limping and left almost pain free!I really appreciated his professional yet compassionate demeanor. He is a very knowledgeable therapist. Thank you very much I really appreciate your efforts!

Amazing experience. After being misdiagnosed by other therapists I visited Byron and within one visit it was clear he was the real deal. Able to assess my issue and clear it up within the first visit. I have referred all of my friends to him and they have all been blown away by the results. A+!!!!!!

I came to see Byron to work on some long term back problems and our work together was awesome! I'm definitely going back again. Through my work as an advocate for holistic therapies I've met a lot of healers and Byron is truly gifted. His work is focused, deep, and there isn't any working around the problem. He dives right in and gets to the source....really great!

I don't write many reviews, but Byron knows what he is doing. I am a middle-aged jogger who came in with a calf injury that stopped me cold from my usual, moderate hill runs. I was in despair of ever running again and I was gaining weight... I found Byron on Groupon and thought, WTH, I might as well try. In about three treatments, I was running again, and in about 4 or 5, my pace was faster than my last 5k run (when I was really pushing it). The Advocare products that he suggested really help my performance. So...middle-aged joggers...limp on over to Sports Massage Therapy. You will not regret it. Worth every penny.

I play soccer frequently and came in to see Byron because of tightness in my thighs. I am 28 years old and had acl surgery a few years ago. Byron quickly diagnosed imbalances in my body and we began to work at them with a plan. We worked on my legs for 10 hours (not on the same day) and I am very pleased with the results. My body spent years working with out of balance so I know it is going to take time to regain proper function of all muscles. I can say that anytime I left Byron's I felt a better range of motion in my legs and hip. I spent some time away from San Diego and have not seen Byron in a few months but I am planning on seeing him again soon. He is a friendly and informative and a joy to be around.

After the first 1 hour treatment from Byron, I dramatically felt a difference! With his unique technique of sports massage therapy, Art significantly reduced the pain that I had been living with and tolerating for several years all over my body. He knew exactly where to target the source of the painful areas. I have been to many LMTs, masseurs, and sports massage therapists before trying to relieve my pain. None have been able to target and alleviate the source that Byron was able to do. I purchased a 10 session package and I'm halfway through my treatment now. My range of motion has increased. I don't feel as much pain when I work on the computer, and when I walk or exercise. I am looking forward to the remaining treatments with Byron to continue my road to wellness. Thanks Byron!

Byron is such an amazing healer. I've had a hip/hamstring injury for a year now and finally (after seeing a multitude of therapists and trying a variety of treatments) I am beginning to see results in my pain and mobility with Byron's help. He released certain areas of my body that I wouldn't associate with my initial injury but somehow they are related. I study dance and contortion and I'm so elated to begin to have access to parts of my body that felt so stuck and injured before. I have Byron to thank for that. He has really helped me out when I thought there was no hope for my injury. I am truly grateful. I have already recommended him to my friends and fellow dancer/performers and hope that this online recommendation will help you find relief for you pain.

Byron is amazing, his techniques and care are unique but you must go for at least a few sessions for him to really fix you, because chances are your injuries have been there for many years and it takes time for him to undo it. AND you need to follow his instructions for the rest of the time you are not with him. He can't be there to fix you all the time but he does give you the knowledge to make yourself function better and relieve your pain.

Although Byron made sure to get to the areas of discomfort first and then work other areas as well, everything felt super rushed. From the moment I stepped into the room and the minute I walked out. The room ambiance was awkward and quiet. Overall the experience was okay.

I had an amazing massage experience with Byron. He's very easy to communicate with and is very courteous in texts and in person. When I arrived, I was greeted with a smile and a firm handshake, both positive signs of what was to come. Byron was very professional and he did a quick interview/assessment to determine what I need. I suffer from symptoms of scoliosis so I had a few areas that I knew I needed work on. But for our first session, I wanted something for the entire body. The massage itself was wonderful. At times, I could feel myself falling asleep because it was so relaxing. And then where I needed it most, he gave just the correct amount of pressure to really get the kinks out. Byron has really strong hands and they really helped to release the tension in my shoulders and neck. He also recognized and focused on the areas affected by my scoliosis. At the end of the 1-hour massage, I was feeling extremely relaxed and rejuvenated! It really felt awesome. I'm definitely going to find Byron again when I'm back in the area or if I am in the need of a good massage. I would definitely recommend him to all my friends.

In addition, he also provided helpful techniques for daily posture and modified behavior to reduce soreness and pain. I would recommend Byron absolutely.

I had a pinched nerve in my upper back plus many ancient spots that needed some serious work. As a bartender and manager of a bar, my body is often challenged and put into unnatural positions. Byron was amazing! After my session, I could already feel an improvement and by day two I felt completely healed. He understood where I needed most of my work and really focused on those areas. I can't thank him enough and also trusted him completely. Byron is wonderful and I will definitely be back again.

Fantastic experience, and one of the best massages I have had. As an athletic person, I constantly need to be relieved from the abuse that my body takes on a regular basis, and Byron is so in tune with knowing how much pressure to use, and what my body could handle. His studio room is relaxing and pristine, and the location is great...parking was easy for me to find a meter. Love Byron's energy and stillness about him, and can't wait to go back, as today I feel better than I have in a long time.

Byron was recommended to me by a friend who raved about her massage with him. After making my appointment and experiencing my own massage I could see why she recommended him. Byron was very professional and welcoming. He takes the time to talk to you about any concerns you might want him to address. The massage itself was great. Byron could sense when to apply more or less pressure. Just enough to get out the 'kinks' without being painful. It was very relaxing...to the point that I wanted to stay and nap for a bit afterwards. I highly recommend getting a massage from Byron and plan on making my next appointment with him soon.

Byron is excellent. His understanding of physiology and the body as a holistic system is what I was looking for, and he takes a technical approach of learning what my issues are and addressing them, instead of any sort of standard massage. As a result it's way more productive, and I leave feeling like things have been shifted around and loosened up and can start to heal. Highly recommend seeing Byron for this kind of work.

Went to Byron because I have chronic pain from sitting too much - back, neck, glutes, etc. I've had tons of massages, and I can definitely say his was one of the best. I chose him because I need extremely deep tissue work, and he did not disappoint. Even though my knots are stubborn as sh**, he didn't stop until they were annihilated.

Today was my 4th massage with Byron. I found him just searching, 'Sports Massage near me', My back was in sooo much pain, I literally would get up in the morning stooped over. I've been coming once a week, after my 3rd session with some stretches that Byron showed me, I was 90% better. I'm not going to tell you it was relaxing, it was not, it was painful, pressing on the tight muscles wasn't fun but it did the trick. I knew I was in a hands of an expert. Byron is everything everyone says on the reviews below and more. I got a Therapist for life. Thank you god for this great finding.

It took many texts and questions to even book my appointment a month away. When I finally got an appointment, I was booked for the wrong day- a day earlier. Every time I asked a question, the response was- Check your email. I felt like an inconvenience, not a customer. The facility was hard to find, located in a stinky, empty building and not welcoming. When I arrived, no one was in the room and the therapist quickly popped out. There was no formal greeting, just another paper to fill out and into the room. The massage was mediocre. A cooling lotion was used which made me cold during the entire appointment. Soft music with water flowing was played the entire time. The lights were bright and when I turned face up, it was not relaxing. Overall, the facility, massage, customer service and experience was not positive. I wouldn't return or recommend anyone.

My experience here was overall really good. I had a difficult time reaching the business by phone after multiple attempts in the beginning, however. The masseuse I met with was kind to extend his hours to fit my schedule, but when I showed up, it was also difficult to locate where I would be having my massage, as the main entrance was closed. The session, itself, was very soothing (almost put me to sleep) and the massage very well done. I seldom find masseuses who take the time to work on the areas I request, and this one did a great job!

He's very thorough and deep, knows the body well. Good evaluation both before and after the massage. Obviously cares. Could have spent more time on my lower back which is my main need. A little too much time spent on the upper back and shoulders which feels slightly bruised.

Very professional. Byron focused on the area that was of most concern. The pressure (firm) is exactly what I requested, nothing less.

Being very experienced in terms of receiving sports massages I really liked the depth and scope of the massage which totally met my expectations, Byron was very informative and opened my eyes to a number of areas from a stretching standpoint. Office is in a great location right near Route 163 and University Ave.

Byron gained a thorough understanding of my issues so that he could work on correcting them effectively. I also liked that he kept his talking to a minimum while he was doing the physical work.

Crushed my T6 vertebrae and dislocated my shoulder racing motorcycles. After a year and a half of off and on physical therapy through Cedars I was in constant pain and even though I continued to push through it all and continue to live an active lifestyle, it was no way to live. Kind of scary when you're still young and active and feel like you're staring down the barrel of chronic back pain for the rest of your life. Byron got to the root of the problem and has made me whole again. Whereas the PT through Cedars meant well, on retrospect they were completely unqualified to rehabilitate as opposed to just manage the pain and injury. I can say I almost feel completely cured as of now. Really, the best money you can spend. All the cars, clothes, and trips don't mean anything if you aren't in your best health and able to enjoy them.

Byron is such an amazing healer. I've had a hip/hamstring injury for a year now and finally (after seeing a multitude of therapists and trying a variety of treatments) I am beginning to see results in my pain and mobility with Byron's help. He released certain areas of my body that I wouldn't associate with my initial injury but somehow they are related. I study dance and contortion and I'm so elated to begin to have access to parts of my body that felt so stuck and injured before. I have Byron to thank for that. He has really helped me out when I thought there was no hope for my injury. I am truly grateful. I have already recommended him to my friends and fellow dancer/performers and hope that this online recommendation will help you find relief for you pain.

I was disappointed because I wanted a deep tissue massage, and what he did was a medium pressure Swedish style. Additionally, he used an electric massager,which I didn't like, because I have one at home and can do that myself. He was friendly and professional and I appreciated that.

Do yourself a favor - just go get a message. You'll know too. Byron not only has a great knowledge about the physiology of the body, but he the kind of person you can feel comfortable around. And of course that's a little important when your clothes are off, right? I always feel better, never feel like it wasn't worth it. Great sports therapy stuff and usually willing to work on a target or problem area.

Coming from someone that has been very active in sports my whole life I'm learning the sad truth that as I age I don't bounce back quite as fast as I used to. I went to a few massage places before I found Sports Massage Therapy. I was looking for someone that had experience with functional sports massage and can actually do massage that helped my body recover and perform better and that's exactly what I found here! AMAZING! I really like Byron, he's top notch when it comes to functional massage! I finally have found my place for recovery. I can't recommend him highly enough!

Getting a massage by Byron is like having your own personal physical therapist. He will explain why you're having pain or stiffness and will make it go away. He has an obvious passion and commitment to his craft. Unfortunately, before finding Byron, I had purchased a few massages through Groupon, so when I went to those other therapists, it felt like I was flushing money down the toilet -- there is no comparison.

I had tightness in my shoulder and chest area for a good two weeks without being able to lift my arms. After exhausting all other options, I figured I'd give Byron at Sports Massage Therapy. Byron did an excellent job of calming my reservations about getting a massage from another dude. He did a great job of easing the tension in my chest and shoulders and even gave me an exercise to do that would help with stretching my chest and shoulders, I can raise my right arm again! Would definitely recommend.

The back massage was very good. Sore today but expected. Still able to function at work. Overall I went in to get a good knee massage. Could of been better or focused on more in the area. Byron I feel is very knowledgeable in his profession. He pointed out key areas of where I may have injured myself or how my range of motion differed from the opposite side. Would I go back for another therapy session....... Sure!

If you are looking for an amazing and healing massage, and interested in speaking with someone with a deep understanding of wellness, I would like to recommend Byron. He is very kind, knowledgeable about nutrition and body work. He also has a distinct ability to motivate and encourage his clients to manage the health of their bodies and minds. His enthusiasm for self care is contagious. Lastly, His prices are fair and he knows many styles of massage and healing techniques.

One of the best--if not the best--massages I have ever had was by Byron at Sports Massage Therapy. He was powerful in removing old knots and tense areas in my neck, shoulders and back. I felt relaxed and wonderful for days after. Hard to beat the prices and available hours here too. I would highly recommend giving this place a try. Sign up for their emails for promos.

I just visited Byron's new location and it is fabulous. The place is very convenient and relaxing and, of course, Byron's services are excellent. It is a wonderful experience. I get lots of massages at many places and Byron is among the very best there is. I go to him for aches and pains as well as relaxation and he listens to what I need and want at that time and responds so well. And with this new space in Hillcrest it is even better than before - all the people in the area are so nice and friendly. Go for a visit - you will be glad you did.

In the 25 years I've been getting massages I can honestly say Byron is the best massage therapist I've ever been to. He is very strong and the massages I've had have brought lasting relief to my problem areas (neck and shoulders). He is also very generous with his knowledge and is always willing to answer questions regarding preventive measures I can take to minimize pain. He has a comfortable place of business. It's always a treat to see Byron and I highly recommend him.

Absolutely amazing! Byron 's technique is perfect and his hands are magic. Seriously. Not only does he listen to you, but he provides feedback after your massage. Last time he gave me stretches to do for my tight neck and shoulder and they really work. Today I saw him after being in a car accident and while I'm still a little banged up, I feel so much better than when I walked in. If you are looking for someone who can do real deep tissue work then you must try Byron. Hands down best massage in SD! Love the new location. Love that you can schedule your appointment online :)

Massage therapist was very professional. He gave me very valuable info, after the massage that I am finding useful, The time was a full hour which I found agreeable. He worked the areas that I identified with skill and knowledge.

Byron is very good at focused, deep tissue massage and identification of trigger points. He also seems more knowledgeable that most regarding anatomy and evaluation of sources of problems. This is not a spa massage. You will walk away feeling great and relaxed, but you will probably not be falling asleep during the massage as it can be fairly intense at times. I will be going back.

Byron was so professional and knowledgeable. I have been involved in personal training for over a year now and I do some complex workouts with my trainer. My muscles have been pretty tight and Byron helped me to understand why that is and what I can do for it. He also knew how to handle my preexisting injury, dislocated shoulder, and what I could do to strengthen it. I will definitely be returning!

I've been to a few massage centers and spas where the service has been hit or miss. Usually the best practitioners are always booked up and you end up with a person whose hands smell like cigarettes when the try to massage my face. Since then I've been very reluctant to go, but my muscles need those knots ironed out. I thought I would give Sports Massage Therapy a try. It may be exaggerated claim, but I think this is the best place in San Diego. Actually, right now l feel that his was probably the best massage service I've had in all the places I've been to around the world.

I first tried Byron through a Groupon thing. I am not a big user, but in this case it worked out for me and for Byron. I got a new regular therapist, and Byron got a steady, committed customer. Since our first, Groupon encounter, I have since seen Byron many times, and always had a positive, friendly. professional and caring experience. He takes notes on what is going on with me, both physically and otherwise, and refers to them at the next session. He shares his great and growing knowledge, works my body hard (the man is strong!) and I always have a positive experience. If you want a genuine, knowledgable, caring and effective massage, Byron should be on your target list. I have worked with many therapists over the years, and like to find someone that gets to know me and my body. Byron is my new go-to guy.

I have been to many massage therapists over the years, but Byron is the best that I have found. I moved to Ohio, and I was extremely bummed about giving up Byron. I still have not found a massage therapist that even comes close to his work, and it has been close to two years now. I recently flew back to San Diego, and I was able to schedule a massage with Byron. I cannot tell you the world of difference he brought me. I can finally move my neck and shoulders to a reasonable degree. He is the best. Do not be fooled with his location. There are buildings in the front that left so he is trying to rebuild the location. It takes time. Book with him today! You will not regret it!

I have been to massage therapists for chronic neck and back pain since an auto accident back in 2010. I have had good and bad therapists throughout the years and I was quite pleased to find Byron. I'm extremely satisfied with his technique, his professionalism, and his wonderful personality. He is truly a gifted healer with hands of gold! I've even fallen asleep once or twice when getting relaxation massages :-) Most of the time this wouldn't happen with his Deep tissue massages as he can go deep- just the right amount of pressure to loosen those knots!

Byron is incredibly knowledgeable about massage physiology and was able to diagnose a problem I was having when no one else could. He is very thorough and understands how exercise can help as well as hurt the body. I recommend him to folks wanting to get more out of their workouts as well as those just wanting to work out pesky aches and pains. He's terrific!

I love the fact that Byron focus on my problem areas. I did notice one request that was not done (lower back). Afterwards, he explain the reason for not working much on my lower back. He stated that it was my gluteus muscle that were tight and the muscles are pulling my lower back. (I do a lot of squats). Very detail oriented.

I bought the 90 minute session in hops of receiving a full body massage. I told him I was sore all over, especially in my shoulders, upper arms, back, hip flexors and calves. He spent almost the entire time on my thoracic back. Afterwards, he asked if I had any questions (normally after a massage, they offer you water, give brief instructions, etc). When I tipped him 20%, rather than thanking me, he said "ok, cool." The office smelled like ant spray, it was loud with the window open, not relaxing at all and the music was pretty weak. The massage itself was especially painful. I did ask for "firm pressure," but I was also hoping for a variety of pinpoint & diffuse deep tissue massage. All I receieved was pinpoint pressure in a few parts of my upper back for an hour and a half. He didn't do much at all with the other areas I requested, and didn't even touch my anterior shoulders, chest or feet (I'm clean, I promise, so it wasn't a hygiene thing). Unless you have a single knotted up muscle and like pain (I have a high pain tolerance too!), I wouldn't recommend this place. I personally like variety, healing & relaxation.

Terrific massage; Byron really paid attention to my main trouble spots and tailored the amount of time spent and amount of pressure used on them. Also I prefer not to chit chat during massages, and he was perfect in that sense. He was not asking questions or trying to engage in conversation.

I have probably had over 100 massages across many cities and three countries and this was the best. Byron was pleasant and I was impressed with the quality of his professionalism and skill. Not only did he address the upper back pain I was experiencing, but he took the time to identify stretches I should complete for my hamstrings and hip openers. I took several of his business cards to give to friends and colleagues looking for a massage. Highly recommended! Richard Neuman, Consultant and retired professor of pharmacology

I would recommend Byron to friends, without hesitation. He is truly a professional, with a manner which puts one at ease, and excellent listening skills which are critical in determining what his client is experiencing at the moment. In contrast, I do not think those he shares space with are as considerate. Their rooms are far from soundproof and their voices far from soothing. When receiving treatment, whether massage, acupuncture or therapy, it is very distracting to hear people in adjacent rooms.

I appreciated his knowledge of getting right into the issues that I have with my first rib. He offered great 'common sense' suggestions, that I simply had overlooked, without judgement. Best of all, I felt so comfortable, I dozed off a wee bit. Thank you!

Knows his stuff, only conversed when asked questions, professional and punctual. Performed follow-up demonstrations of stretches that would be beneficial. Ambiance was fine inside the room. Office is shared with other businesses so there isn't any separate waiting area.

I felt very comfortable during my session. The pain in my back and shoulders was significantly reduced after my session. I was, however, slightly concerned that background information was not gathered prior to my session. It was my first time in the office and all that was asked was, "what areas are we targeting today?" No background information, first client paperwork, etc. I would definitely return though!

As a health care professional I am using my back and lifting a lot for work, so it is great to find someone who knows how to work the body to help with the stress.

My favorite therapists invest something of themselves in their treatment - Byron doesn't. Like many massage therapists with average skills, he attempts to set himself apart with the use of aromatherapy (over the top use), additives to oils, and fancy names. I went for sports massage, but got more of an average massage; in fact he focused on an area I did not ask for and could have cared less if he worked at all! Even though I mentioned allergies to essential oils, he used them in a diffuser and in his oil. For all that, he tried and did an okay job. At the end, he tried to give me a little lecture about maintaining health that was actually pretty funny (he didn't seem to see the humor, though).

Bryon is very professional and he knew exactly which of my muscle groups were the most sore and gave them extra treatment.

I am not a practicing massage therapist because I work as a gemologist, but I am Nationally Certified with 710 hours of classes. I hope to give Mr. Hayes five stars on my second visit. Thank you, Bryon.

I've been getting massages once a month from Byron for about 10 months now, and it has been extremely healing. I no longer have chronic back and shoulder soreness and pain. He always starts each session by asking me what I want done, and is able to really focus on specific areas to work on muscles and knots. He is also great at full body massages, and has experience in various techniques and types of massages. I always feel like a lot of weight has been lifted off of my body after one of his massages, and my body feels more pliable and nimble. Massages from Byron are definitely my favorite way to keep up a healthy body and mind.
