About Jim's Massage
Because we are all unique people, your massage will be all about You.
Whether you are looking to just unwind after a long day, ease sore, aching muscles, prep for a sporting event, or just want to feel nurtured, I can help you out.
The work is slow and deep (or not deep, if you prefer) so you can register the sensation of systemic body release as you breathe fully and effortlessly.
Although this is not bodywork, it is a highly enjoyable experience.
I am a NY State trained therapist with over 1,200 hours of instruction, including an ongoing study in Myofascial Release.
My studio is brand new, intimate, and clean and conveniently located in the heart of the Northern Liberties section of Philadelphia, with non-metered street parking available. PLEASE CALL ME TO SET UP YOUR SESSION, as I check email sporadically.
Thanks and I look forward to working with you!

10Scheduling a massage appt with Jim was very easy. We corresponded by phone and text and locked in a day/time several days in advance. First of all, I was grearrf by Jim at his studio, and he was very warm and engaging, and not to mention even better looking than his photo. He led me to the massage room and we engaged in a 5-minute conversation to discuss the massage and my expectations. I told Jim that I was quite sore in my left arm and shoulder and asked him to pay extra time on that area. Once the massage began, I knew I was in for a wonderful experience. Jim is obviously trained and his technique was superb. He used light, medium and deep pressure during the massage and also incorporated sensory and meditation elements that brought a more holistic feel to the massage. I felt truly cared for during the entire session and didn't want to leave his table. My arm and shoulder feel so much better a couple days after the massage and the rest of my body is also still reaping the benefits. I can't wait for another appointment with Jim and hope to experience his wonderful hands again soon. Thanks. Male massage review by Joe (4 reviews)

10Jim offered the most wonderful massage I’ve ever had. My first thought is that if I could somehow duplicate myself and stand massaging myself, Jim applied the same techniques I would do on myself. There are many small details Jim already thinks of which sets him above the rest, so many nice nuances I would want a masseur to remember (that I feel very comfortable with). A few examples: Jostling major muscles to loosen them, massaging my scalp, temples, and my hands! He took a good amount of time massaging my hands (this is excellent and is forgotten by some masseurs). He said it feels so reassuring to have our hands comforted, that they usually work so hard in life, and we forget to comfort them. I fully agree. Jim is as gentle, caring and classy as he appears. Please treat him with the respect he deserves because he’ll do that for you. He has a sweet but masculine persona (without being overbearing.) He's a rare breed. I like the nurturing aspect mentioned in other reviews. I shared this with Jim in the initial consult, and he came through! He has such a caring touch I couldn’t help but touch his hands back in appreciation. So show your appreciation, but keep it respectful, appropriate and caring in return. Jim has been trained and is very good at the craft or practice of massage. As other reviewers have said: very professional. Lastly, Jim is very conversant, soft spoken and easy to talk to. We carried on cheerful normal conversation through the massage (when I was able to talk). Thanks, Jim! See you again soon! Male massage review by Keith (1 review)

10Words simply can not express the experience I felt during Jim's massage. It was true heaven on earth. I felt like my soul had transpired to another world. The experience was exhilarating, euphoric, transcendental spiritual and even somewhat emotional. After the massage was done, it took a while for me to "come back to earth". I was left in a total memorized state. Jim had to ask if I was okay. *smile* I don't even remember parts of my ride home! I have had some really wonderful massages, but no masseur has ever touched me to the level that Jim did. His spirit was simply beautiful (and yes, he is beautiful physically), but his spirit was simply angelic. I think I was massaged by an angel. Most massages touch you on a physical level, this one not only did that, but this one touched me on a spiritual level. Spirit to Spirit. If you are looking to experience heaven on earth, this is the place! Thank you! Thank you! Thank you, Jim! PS. Among the many good things I can say about Jim, he has some amazingly gorgeous feet too! :) Male massage review by LT (5 reviews)

10I had wanted to get a massage for a year or two, but could never work up the courage or choose a masseur. I had been drawn to J for a long time. His looks and the description of his services made it sound very appealing. I was also impressed with his training and reviews. I finally grew a set and called him in the afternoon, and he was able to schedule me that very evening. His voice on the phone sounded perfect for him. I showed up 20 minutes early just as he was returning with his dinner. He asked if I would mind coming back in ten minutes while he grabbed a bite. I didn't think that was enough time for him, so I did some window shopping in the trendy neighborhood he lives in. I came back at my scheduled time and he welcomed me into his spotless apartment. I have to say, in person, J is every bit as cute, if not cuter, than his photos. He did his intake interview with me, taking note of any medical conditions and asking what physical issues I needed worked on. Then he left the room while I disrobed and got on his table. The massage was absolutely perfect. Gentle and yet powerful in areas I needed it. He would frequently whisper gently in my ear, asking me if I was doing OK. I was more than OK. I was in nirvana! After the massage, he had a glass of water for me, and we chatted a bit while I got dressed. I had a two hour drive back to my home, and felt wonderful. The next day, I didn't experience any of the stiffness or aches and pains as I usually do. I can't wait to get another massage from this sweet, gentle, and adorable man. He's not only a fantastic masseur, he's someone I would consider it a privilege to call my friend. His other reviews are spot on! The worst part of the evening? I couldn't remember where I had parked my car! LOL If you're looking for a "rub and tug," look elsewhere. J is the ultimate professional. Male massage review by Beege (1 review)

10I have had a good amount of massages in my life, and this rates as the best. :) I had emailed Jim, and within 2 hours he had called me to talk about our session. When we met, he was very warm and very knowledgeable. We discussed my specific needs, and after that I was in his hands, literally! I must say great hands and great energy. There is great balanced feeling in both his hard and soft touch. While working out the bad muscle with his strong hand, I could also feel, just as strongly, his soft hand, it was a nice surprise! He has a welcoming energy, and you can tell he loves what he does...Will go back again soon! Male massage review by Tom (1 review)

10I've seen Jim many times... he is superb. Really, there's no other adjective to describe his work! He's sensitive to your needs, in tune with your body and has the ability to truly heal. Without question he's one of the best masseurs anywhere! Male massage review by JD (3 reviews)

10I left Jim a voicemail and he returned my call within an hour. He accomodated me for a same day appointment. At our first session he did an intake and talked to me about myself in order to personalize my massage experience. The entire experience was perfect. Just the right balance of pressure and touch. The 90 minutes seem to go by very quickly and I didn't want it to end. I have since gone back to Jim almost weekly. I finally found the perfect masseur and I absolutely can't get enough of him. For me, he is the perfect ending to my very stressful and hectic week and a great way to ease into a relaxing weekend. On one particular weekend I got a massage on Friday. Pulled my back out on Saturday and called for an urgent appointment. Jim accommodated me and on Sunday morning I was fine. The muscle pain was gone. Jim is a miracle worker!

10This is my 3rd massage with Jim. Each time has been and excellant experience. I am currently training for an international tennis tournament. To say the least my legs, lower back and feet are a bit fatigued, tired. I also had tightness and a know near both the right and left shoulder blade. Jim was able to address each of these areas. He also did a different not really massage but placing one had on my back and his other hand on the front parallel with one another. This provded an electric or tingling type sensation. Very interesting experience. Jim is very personable and really knows how to cater his massages to your needs. I highly reccomend Jim and I look forward to many more massages.

10I've received massages from many different therapists and have traded massages with some therapists as well. Jim is definitely one of the best massage therapists I've encountered. Jim has a wide range of skills that he utilizes and he blends them well seamlessly. He is knowledgeable, warm, sweet, caring and cute, too. He is very intuitve in connecting with and listening to your body while most therapists just follow a "routine" to give you a rubdown. I truly enjoyed my experience with him. I wish I'd lived closer to him to have regular appointments with him. Male massage review by Lance (1 review)
