BROOKLYNBOYBODYWORK
WHERE THE PHYSICAL MEETS THE METAPHYSICAL
(636) 364-8747

Highland Park, LA
It's a buck a minute up to 4 hours.
Seriously, up to 4 hours.

My name is Trip.

I treat the Human Being, through the Human Body.  

Over the past 15 years I have worked to seamlessly combine my  NYU Kinesiology Masters Degree education, my Studio Riverside  Muscle Mechanic Technician apprenticeship,  my  study of and training of Navajo Shaman  Healing Hands Spirit Touch, my experience as a professional dancer, athlete, gyrotonic alignment instructor, my passion as an artist and my gift as a healer  into a session that is as therapeutic as it is refreshing and as spiritual as it is sensual. It is a Mind/Body/Spirit integrated session. That transcends the physical to the metaphysical.

"You've gotta see this guy--it's performance art meets massage: it's therapy, massage, yoga, church and the gym combined, served with a sizzle choreographed by Fosse" 
--Time Out New York!
It begins like the first chord of a symphony-- both strong hands forward from behind across the shoulder muscles of the back. From there, heels of the palm in concert and in antiphony renew places you didn't know you had. Down from head to foot and back again, lastly from the temples lightly in a concluding caress. Music done, the overtones go on and on and on. Septegenarian, Riverhead, NY
“If you’re like me and treat yourself to a massage just once or twice a year, this is the masseur you’ll want to work with. He seems to intuit just what a body needs and adjusts his technique accordingly. A massage from this fellow will both relax you and restore a deep sense of well-being. You’ll likely want to treat yourself more often!” 
Ken T.--Palm Springs California
A massage like no other! Trip knows every muscle and how to prod, tease, and cajole it into relaxation. I've been getting regular massages for over 20 years, and I can say without reservation that Trip is the best! Palm Springs' loss is New York's gain. H.J. --A Regular Palm Springs Client
Calling what I do massage is like comparing Cirque de Solei to Krusty the Klown.
 Here's what most guys really want: 

NOT TO THINK.

No fuss, no muss, simple, easy, comfortable, done. 

What's nice, is: 

A level of service and commitment to excellence that allows a guy to let go, shutdown, recharge and reboot. A chance to dis-engage under the capable, therapeutic, well trained, healing hands of hot guy that you don't have to worry is going to steal your i-phone while you're the shower.  

No big deal.

Even better is:

A talented, competent, educated, experienced, fit , open-minded, un-intimidating, engaging and committed Guy's GUY to relieve and release while not making you feel out of place, out of shape or out of line. 

I got you.

And as long as you're askin':

Guys want friendly but not chatty, professional but not clinical, strong but not traumatizing, unconventional but grounded,compassionate but not weak, discrete but not ashamed, private but not aloof, opinionated but not judgmental, serious but fun guy.

Done deal.

I am a regular guy from Brooklyn. I am not a pretty boy or a Muscle God -and if you're my kind of client, that's not what this is about. I just have the very good fortune of being the best at what I do.

NOT HAPPY? Don't pay. 

I am only concerned with your stress, tension and pain. I don't care what you look like, how old you are, how much you weigh, what kind of car you drive, status,-- what I care about is creating an experience that is uniquely yours.

Care is taken to engage each of your senses, the musical score, aroma therapy candles,scented oil, warmed body butter, hot stones, crisp cool linens, and soft diffused lighting are all individually and uniquely selected to create a moment of magic, of ritual, of bonding, of healing.

The strokes are long, strong, deep and slow, but not painful or invasive. They are done gradually, persuading kinks and seducing knots to release their grip and melt into oblivion. Your muscles are stretched, pulled, pressed, pummeled, aligned and caressed leaving you refreshed, rejuvenated, relaxed and released from tension and stress. 

I have created sessions for individuals living with AIDS, cancer, M.S., A.L.S., visually impaired, paraplegic, quadriplegic, as well as individuals with colostomy bags.

I have a beautiful studio in a Valentino Bungalow Craftsman Home in Gorgeous Highland Park. I have a great out door Art Garden ideal for massage on a warm day, and a beautiful indoor studio with a Monster Bath available. Easy parking, good location, private, discreet, high end padded heated table, linens, oils, butters, lotions, scrubs, wraps and refreshments available.

So, if your rear-end is at a near end, if your wagon is draggin', if "lift and separate" has become "too close for comfort" , then you need the AZTEC, bum-hummin tune up. 


​THE AMAZING AZTEK

I created the Aztec specifically for dancers and athletes focusing on all things glute. Here's why: My experience as a dancer, and long distance cyclist is that it was really hard to find a masseur or bodyworker who knew what they were doing or were comfortable working on the butt. I could get someone who was comfortable, or someone who was competent--not both.

In Swedish Massage it's a forbidden zone, but consider..the largest ball socket in the body, the largest bone, the largest muscle, the longest nerve ending, all of your lower back support, come together where? 

I'm gonna take the whole thing apart, pushing, pulling, pressing, stetching, guided stretching, pummeling, caressing combining elements from yoga, ballet, gyrotonics, and a few things I've invented, and then I'm gonna put it all back together.  

We will of course begin with some neck and shoulders but the primary focus will be the lower back, the glutes, the hip sockets, the abductors, T-bands, hammy's, and hip flexer. 

Originally The session was designed for professionals but it's really for everyone who's got a pain in the butt.


So, if your rear-end is at a near end, if your wagon is draggin', if "lift and separate" has become "too close for comfort" , then you need the AZTEC, bum-hummin tune up.
