"Massage was awesome!" MG
I was a pain-wracked lump of cement. Somewhere in the middle of my massage with Eric I felt literally as if my entire body had become unknotted, disentangled. I felt light. I cannot express accurately in words what a fantastic masseur Eric is. You must experience it to believe it. Really great guy too. I'm saving up for next time, which will be sooner rather than later. Amazing. Highly, highly recommended if you really want a mind-blowing massage.
"Actual healing Fluid and Unique"
I was in a bad car accident, hit from behind at high speed, two weeks prior to my massage with Eric. Based on what I'd told him of the accident, and what he could discern with his hands, he worked to relieve and restore balance to me, particularly my upper back and neck. I've had a lot of massages, but this was the first time a massage actually felt therapeutic – like actual healing, fluid and unique to me – rather than just a bit of pampering. He combined the massage with some firm stretching and when I left the table, I couldn't remember when I'd felt so limber and restored. I look forward to my next massage with Eric, and would strongly recommend him to anyone who is looking for a strong massage with real, lasting results.

My massage from Eric exceeded my expectations in every
respect. I am an advanced yoga practitioner and athlete,
and was looking for a professional, non-sexual massage from
a strong guy who really understands the body. I checked in
with Eric before booking the massage to be sure he would
not be timid about really getting in and working the glutes
and hamstrings. In this and in every respect, Eric really
delivered. I found him to be amazingly intuitive. His pressure
was consistently right in that narrow window between strong
enough and too strong. (In my experience most therapists
fall short of strong enough – this was never a problem
for Eric.) He is focused, totally competent, and clearly
loves to give a great massage. I got off his table feeling
totally relaxed, energized, and nurtured. I highly recommend
Eric to my friends who want serious quality bodywork. DG

I looked thru all the reviews of countless masseurs and
I jotted Eric's name and number down. I liked what was written
about him as well as his description of both himself and
his massage. I also liked his price. Many masseurs in my
opinion are overvalued. But that's another story! I found
Eric to be a total delight...he returned my call right away
and sounded very personable. He was very open to discuss
what I wanted from the massage and my general health. He
showed up on time and the massage exceeded my expectations.
He's got a wonderful way with his hands, very intuitive and
his demeanor was perfected suited to mine. He can be quiet
or conversational...he really reads you personally as well
as your body. Since he's used to working on big guys,
he was able to temper his deep tissue work for my smaller
frame. And he's really funny too. He set me at ease right
away. I have since booked Eric two more times and the more
he gets to know my body and me, the better I feel. He also
made some great suggestions about diet, stretching and even
recommended a great chiropractor...who I'm seeing now. Eric
is the real deal. He's punctual, dedicated, professional,
and talented. DS

|Carpal tunnel syndrome
I have had a keyboarding-type
job for about 15 years and had been experiencing some major
wrist pain at the beginning of 2006. I was told by my orthepedist
that it was "overuse
went to physical therapy. The physical therapy wasn't working
very well, so I scheduled an appointment with Eric in June
2006 hoping for some pain relief. Eric was able to do flexion
exercises and massage on my arms, wrists and hands that gave
immediate relief from the pain. I later found out from a
hand surgeon that I actually had carpal tunnel syndrome,
and that my other doctor's diagnosis was incorrect. I am
now getting the proper treatment for CTS. I have seen Eric
about a dozen times since June 2006. If it wasn't for his
knowledge of massage, trigger points and joints, etc., I
wouldn't have been able to work at all. He really helped
me relieve some of the pain. I would highly recommend Eric.
He knows what he is doing, is strong and is very intelligent.
Prior to meeting Eric, I had a stressful event take place
in my life. In addition, I had just started back to the gym
after a 6 month hiatus due to an injury. Also, I had been experiencing
some digestion problems. Upon arriving at his apartment, we
discussed any injuries or other issues that I was dealing with,
which allowed him to determine his approach to my massage.
( I did not share with him the stressful event that had taken
place at this time). Eric determined that he would do basically
a "system re-boot." Having had many massages by other
therapists throughout my life, I knew instantly that Eric knew
what he was doing. He also was more intuitive than anyone that
has ever worked on me. Half way through the massage he asked, "my
dear boy, what is going on with you?" He intinctly knew
that I was dealing with a major life issue. The massage was
alot of work, and Eric poured his heart and soul into it. Afterwards,
I shared with him the cause of my stress. I felt comfortable
with him and respected his knowledge after the massage, and
he was also knowledgeable about nutrition and exercise. I left
feeling drained, and two days later I was sore, as if I had
worked out at the gym. Then the healing started. The "re-boot" was
pivotal in my entire healing process. Today, I had my second
session with Eric. It was just as nuturing as the first, but
Eric had noticed the changes since the first session, and secretly
I already knew that a significant amount of progress had been
made and he had been the catalyst for that change. I plan on
frequently visiting Eric now. He has become an key part of
my health and lifestyle changes. SA
I went to Eric to help me recover from some long training
runs. I'd done a triathlon in the fall and was a few weeks
away from my 2nd marathon of the year. I thought I just needed
work on my legs to loosen things up there, but Eric started with
my upper body and I discovered tightness and knots in places
that I hadn't been aware of. He works methodically, with the
right amount of pressure for each session. He also varies the
massage from session to session and concentrates on areas of
greatest need. I had two body work appointments within 10 days.
I also had the best marathon time I've ever run -- thanks, Eric!
|"One of the best massages I've ever had.." Diavolo Circus Performer
I sent Eric an e-mail early and he replied very quickly,
and scheduled the appointment the same day. I was in pain due
to overexertion in my work. I am a circus performer. I told
him I had bruises and my psoas was very tight. He was great with
all his work. He was very knowledgable and worked on aches
I didn't know I had. He was also very gentle on areas that were
bruised as well, but managed to release muscle tension despite
the bruises. He could massage and strextch 1 muscle group and
then pin them down to stretch the opposing muscles. It was
one of the best massages I ever had. His rate of 75 per haour
is very cheap he is worth more than what I paid. If I could afford
to pay more I would have.
|A monthly client ever since..
I did a fair amount of research by
looking at various websites before selecting a masseur. When
I read Eric's website, it immediately struck a cord with me in
terms of what I was looking for; a legit masseur who knows what
he is doing, who also has an overall philosophy that is in tune
with mine. He responded very promptly to my emails, answered
my questions. We spoke on the phone to confirm my appointment.
I found Eric to be as he describes himself. He is very personable.
When I arrived we chatted a bit about my physical condition,
any particular issues I had, etc. and then he explained in general
what he had planned, the kinds of lotions he uses, etc. I felt
comfortable from the start. During the massage he was very careful
to make sure I was comfortable and that I was not experiencing
any pain. He pays attention to the detail. The massage was fantastic.
I walked away feeling like new person. He worked on some areas
of my body, my legs in particular that I was not even really
aware of how knotted they were. I told him I feel as if I have
a new set of legs! I have no reservations in recommending him.
I have already booked regular monthly appointments with him.
|Back injury, tennis player...
I threw out my back while playing tennis one
weekend and called Eric as a last minute emergency. He promptly
responded to my call. I easily arrived at his place: clean, attractive
and welcoming apartment. He greeted me with a warm and caring
smile, a cool drink of water and we talked about my problem and
needs. He explained what he was going to do before we got started
and why he was doing it. I felt safe and comfortable throughout
the entire massage. I've had many massages over my life time
and I have never met anyone as intuitive, knowledgeable and genuinely
caring as Eric. He has magical hands and thumbs! Pressure was
PERFECT and I walked out of his place feeling two inches taller.
