wallybear Recommended
Arvada, Colorado, United States
Both of my giving and receiving experiences with wallybear have been wonderful. wallybear has had a lot of experience working with professionals in a clinical setting, and his massage work truly shows his expertise. wallybear was able to find my sore spots and really assist me to relax. He is very detailed, and knew exactly which muscles to work to get the desired healing effect. I appreciate the trade, and I look forward to trading again in the future.

She is definately confident on what she is doing. Great touch. Pressure deepness is being worked on, but great for those sensitive areas. Excellent character and great to get along with.

My recent massage was terrific. This guy has a great intuitive sense and very strong and firm technique. He knows how to work the muscles that needed attention from workouts. Nice person and talented.

I recently had a massage exchange with bicyclistinorlando which was a very positive experience. He came prepared and in the right frame of mind for an exchange. He has a good technique, good hands with firm and directed strokes and the right amount of pressure for a non-professional. He seemed to intuitively spend the right amount of time in each area, upper back, lower back, legs, etc. He was very respectful to boundaries/groundrules to which we agreed over the phone (which I greatly appreciate about him). His work was beneficial and relaxing to me, and he was encouraging to me about my technique as well. I hope to exchange again with him in the future.

Just had a very enjoyable exchange with bengiboy. For a "non-professional" he has managed to acquire some great techniques and gives a well balanced and thorough treatment. He is also extremely keen to learn more and get feedback on his massage and I was more than happy to email him a few tips and thoughts which I'm sure he will readily take on board. We both connected well and are looking forward to another exchange.

durufle was friendly, and easy going. He seemed to know what he was doing, and accomodated my schedule without a problem. His touch was pleasant, and he made me feel at ease. Even though he said he had no formal training he definatly knew his way around the table, and was creative with his technique. Thank you for a great massage exchange.

selondonmassage Highly Recommended
London, England, United Kingdom
I recently had a massage exchange with selondonmassage. I felt a little apprehensive about swaping with a trained professional since I have had no formal training. I was however greeted warmly and made to feel very welcome in a relaxed manner. I was impressed by the dedicated massage room with its air of professionalism, low lighting and relaxing music. We connected very well initially and the massage was very relaxing and enjoyable. I particularly liked the deep tissue work and lighter touches. I enjoyed giving my massage in return. I appreciate the feed back I was given and tips to develop my own style. I enjoyed this swap very much and will definately want to repeat it again.

Riverstone Highly Recommended
Arlington, Virginia, United States
Wow, what a nice massage.

Riverstone's profile would lead you to believe that his massage skills are pretty basic, but not so. The quality of his touch is better than many professional licensed massage therapists I know. Not only did he provide a good relaxing massage, but he identified and helped to relieve some very sore areas. Sure, he doesn't have the same technical expertise as most professionals, but the overall experience was just as satisfying.

He has a clean, warm, and relaxing room for the massage. Good choice of lotion or oil. His table is well arranged. On top of all that, Riverstone is a nice guy and respectful. A pleasant trade.

exploremodality Highly Recommended
Las Vegas, Nevada, United States
I had the pleasure of exchanging massages with Exploringmodality. His touch was full of energy. I felt that he was very much intuned with the energy side of bodywork. His touch was soothing , confident and healing. I felt at ease with his touch and connected on an energetic level. He really seemed intuitive on how he approached the bodywork and executed it wonderfully. I look forward to other massage exchanges with this gentleman. Thanks Exploringmodality for your beautiful touch. Tangibledreamist

He was very professional, for being a therapist for only two years he is very in tune with clients needs and sore areas. Next time I am in town you can well bet he will work on me more than once. Great job man and thanks for making my trip a great one. Hope all is well and Happy Holidays.

dont be surprised if contact becomes a waste of time!

here is my last reply to her when she could not see how we could exchange unless i was willing to pay for a hotel room or put my hand in my pocket and pay like anyone else.

lets see

you dont accomodate, you dont travel, you cant use a room where you work, what is it you expect.

whilst i may not be qualified i have trained and do give a very good massage which i was offering free of charge.

as for paying, i have had a critical illness for 18 months which benifits from massage. as a result i do put my hand in my pocket once or even twice a week, at considerable expense.

i foolishly believed that massage exchange would help my situation and that i could give something in return. you have opened my eyes there!

as i said previously, lets leave it there and i will put a block on your profile to avoid the need for further exchanges.

Unfortunately, this member has selective memory and is a blatent liar, who doesn't take no for an answer and becomes aggresive and abusive when a firm no is necessary when a gentle let down doesn't work. I have had many happy, successful and return exchanges. Apparently, according to him, this person has not - I wonder why.

I have exchanged massages with HenryWatson several times and have found him to be a very friendly and welcoming guy. His calm nature puts you at ease stright away. He gives a very professional massage which is both relaxing and affirming. I have been impressed by his knowledge and abilities and his readiness to teach those less skilled. All in all a wonderful experiance and I look forward to continue to swap massages with him.

I contact Henry first, because I have read some possitive reviews about him, and feel he is a very experienced therapist after read his profile.

The day we did exchange, I had best massage I ever had. He spend time to sort out my shoulder and back problem, even some part of my body I even didn't notice it cause my pain. After his massage I feel awake, and refresh. I noticed the pain I had on my tibialis has gone!

Henry is also very friendly, and knowledge therappist, when he does massage, he also explain every detail for me. I learned a lot from him. After exchange,we had chat to discussed about different experiences, and some different skills use on real case which different with in the classroom. It was very useful.

We both agreed to do exchange again, I am looking forward to exchange with him again!

bengiboy is a caring and thorough intuitive masseur.
He uses his hands well to sense how well any part of the massage is progressing. The result is a very smooth and enjoyable massage which is both energising and relaxing.

Henry was a great person to exchange with - punctual, friendly and truly professional in all aspects. He used part of the time to try out some interesting new techniques which I hope I have learnt from and will be able to incorporate into some of my treatments. I think we both enjoyed each others work which goes to make a successful exchange. I look forward to another exchange at some point and would highly recommend him.

selondonmassage Highly Recommended
London, England, United Kingdom
I had a very thorough, professional massage with a lot of deep work where it was needed.
selondonmassage worked hard and took the time to really sort the things that needed attention. The therapy room was well set-up and parking was no problem.
To complete a very good swapping session he was willing to let me practise, and hopefully improve, some moves that I have been wanting to work on for some time.
I am looking forward to the next opportunity we have to do a swap, maybe even a 3-way because I want to see how he does some of the best moves !
Highly recommended - the 1-star comments in an earlier review are clearly not written with any understanding of good massage practise.

Easemassage was very well prepared for the swap, table with WARM towels, aromatic oil, water to drink and relaxing music - all this and directions to the venue which were clear and easy to follow. A very successful swap, technically a good thorough massage; carried out in a relaxed but conscientous way. I nearly fell asleep on the tube on my way home ! Highly recommended.
