Bodywork session in Tucson


30 per hour - - Posted Oct 25, 2017

I've been doing bodywork since i was a kid. And have been lucky enough to trade with and learn from multiple housemates who were well known certified massage teachers in different parts of the country.

Touch helps us rest and activates your parasympathetic nervous system. It helps us de-stress, produces oxytocin and shifts our neurotransmitter cascades in a healthy relaxing direction. This improves cognition later in the day, reduces tension & anxiety, generates feelings of well being. It may help relieve anxiety or headaches. It's also just plain fun & enjoyable.

I'm happy to focus on particular areas if you have been feeling particularly tight somewhere. Deeper work may help break up the fascia that hold your muscles in tense positions maladaptively.

Take some time for yourself and get away from your hectic life. It's a little mini vacation for free.

I like to have a quick phone call prior to the session to get to know each other

Training & Qualifications

I have over 1800 hours of table time giving intuitive bodywork. I've got an adjustable table with face cradle, oil, salves, music, a shower & off street parking. I'm tall with big strong hands. I have a separate listing for outcalls if you want me to come to you.

Availability & Preferences

My schedule is extremely flexible & you can book time directly here:

Trading Preference: I’m flexible, just hit me up!

I met with Marty for a massage, and was instantly reassured from nervousness when I arrived. When Marty answered the door, he wanted to have a good am...ount of “getting to know you” talk, go over what is ailing me, and he is very knowledgeable about several possible homeopathic solutions to a variety of ailments. When it came time for the massage, everything was alright. It felt a little rushed, but who can complain about a Simbi-powered massage? I would love to see additional options from Marty like 30 mins head and shoulders or 30 mins feet or lower back... just a thought ;) Overall, I was pleased with the experience, and there was nothing weird or uncomfortable. I would go back to see Marty again. Thank you for offering massage of Simbi Marty!!show more

See the tone is his review versus mine? His message: “sorry again, I need more than a couple hours notice if you want to schedule tomorrow or after.... i 'm no longer available this afternoon. this have been overly comp,licated but we should be able to make it work. thanks marty” I followed directions and I did send my resume. After his message, I went to check and my resume was uploaded but didnt send and he never said anything until his review so kinda catty. So based on his review, he seems mean hearted- do not more

He has a online calendar that said he was available but cancelled 3 times on me 😢. Never got to meet up with him. I have a tight schedule so when I s...chedule a time and he cancels it’s a huge inconvenience to me. But it’s okay! Hopefully it works out for someone else. I will keep looking for the well needed support. show more
