My Go-to Massage Therapist

I've been seeing Manny now for several years now and his massage technique is probably one of the best, if not the BEST I've had since I've been getting massages, which is over 20+ years. Manny has an intuitive, relaxing, and therapeutic touch that keeps you coming back to him time and time again. I'd love to rate him negatively only to not ruin it for myself, but in fairness to Manny, try him out yourself and you'll be hooked, you see!

Best of your life!

I have never been compelled to write a review before, but Manny is the single best therapist i have received massage from in 15 years. I don't heap false praise, but i assure you if you get a massage from Manny it will be one of the best of your life.

Amazing Masages from Manny!

I've seen Manny almost weekly for the past 6 months @ my chiropractor & truly appreciate his wonderful massage skills. I have had issues with my neck & jaw for years (bad tmj etc) & was also in a bicycle accident this fall but Manny's bodywork helped ease both immensely. I could not recommend him enough, he always makes me feel comfortable & at ease & cures the pain.

Expert, Good Value, High Integrity

Manuel is an expert at Thai bodywork and deep tissue massage therapy. He can do very strong therapy, or you could say potent or effective. He has worked for me at Chicago Touch since 2007 and has always been on time and reliable. I personally utilize his talent on a regular basis.

My First Time

I've never been to a massage therapist before, so I was a bit hesitant, Manuel did a great job of job of explaining the different methods and was very patient. I am now a believer and will work out a schedule for future therapy. I haven't felt this good in a long time. Thanks, Manuel.

best massage therapist, ever

Manuel is by far the most talented massage therapist I've ever been to. Over the 10+ years I've been having massages, I've been to over approx. 40 therapists, including at the most expensive spas, etc. and no one compares to Manny. He knew exactly what spots hold tension and where my 'problem areas' are after just the first session. He's on my 'must have' list, Manny's services are not optional for me- they are a must!! He will change your life and get rid of your stress, for good...
