Had a great swap with Caplio. He is extremely warm and welcoming - a perfect host. He has a great sense of humour and tales from different parts of the world that simply enthrall. He is a very good body to massage - naturally smooth, muscular as well as responsive and adventurous to try new things - always a masseur's pleasure ! The massage he gave was intense, deep and very sensual. We got on real well. Hope to see you soon buddy and thank you for a great evening !!!
A most enjoyable exchange with Jochi01. Perfect medium deep pressure, with wonderful long strokes covering the entire body. Very friendly with a great place and table to enjoy. Very highly recommended.
Excellent massage. He had everything set up and warm. This was our first session and he made me feel comfortable. We discussed problem areas we each had. I received my message first and he relieved my back and neck issues. Then I returned the favor. He was very tense in his upper back and needed a deep tissue massage. I was able to relieve his problems and enjoyed giving him a full body massage. We both learned different techniques from each other. I am looking forward to our next session.
cajun3 is the real deal. He communicated well and we met exactly when and where we discussed. He gave me great relief with my back and shoulder that constantly give me grief. He's a very nice, personable and professional guy. I can certainly recommend him as I hope to work with him again myself.
I've just had the pleasure of a second exchange with sweetjaz and it was even better than the first which I wouldn't have thought possible. She really is as sweet as her name suggests and I echo the previous reviewers comments that she hasn't lost any of her massage skills as she gave me an excellent massage from head to toe, using just the right amount of pressure (which she checked with me as she went along) such that I was totally relaxed as she was massaging me and yet was energised afterwards!
I then did my best to reciprocate when I massaged her and like to think that I made up for with enthusiasm what I may have lacked in skill compared to sweetjaz's technique!
So, thanks again and hopefully we can exchange again soon!
Met today for the first time with Phil. Was made to feel very welcome and put at ease with his friendly demeanour. He is a lovely guy and gave the most wonderful massage. Speciality is his Hot rocks massage. Very sensual!! Try it,you won't be disappointed. The whole experience was very relaxed and unhurried. Will hopefully return in the near future.
Here's a very competent masseur, who loves to give as well as receive a good massage. NicoUK has certainly developed many of his own wonderful strokes. His touch is gentle and soothing and he is dedicated to the comfort and well-being of the receiver - a very important quality !!! I had a great time swapping with him. I felt at ease due to his welcoming and kind spirit. Very highly recommended :) Thank you very much Nico for hosting such a great evening !!!
Traveled to meet jfpants for a massage swap yesterday. Found him to be a very warm, friendly guy. After a brief chat to establish our expectations I got to experience jfpants massage first. He provided a good, Swedish style massage with good pressure and flow. It was interesting to have a massage starting on the front of body, finishing on the back, which is the opposite to how I work. I would highly recommend swapping with jfpants if your're looking for a genuine, good Swedish style massage and I hope to meet him again soon for a rematch.
Happyhands the name says it all.
Very friendly, polite, respectful and easy to get along with .
Thoroughly enjoyed this very relaxing massage, made me walk on air for a few days.
Looking forward to a follow up.
I had a Exchange with Florida45 it was thoroughly enjoyable exchange. He is a nice and gentle guy
and he has a very good and sensual touch . I was very relaxed and I really enjoyed the massage.
I'm looking forward to exchange with him again.
I Highly recommend Florida45 for a exchange
Let me start by saying that Linda's years of experience shows ..
Her massage is warming, flexing, focused and will leave you thoroughly relaxed when she finishes her nearly 90 minute session ...
Any tension you have will be gone, your body will be free and you will definitely leave with a warm and relaxing feeling over your whole body. She finds those little spots of tension that other masseuse seem to pass over and frees you of them.
I wholeheartedly recommend Linda to anyone wanting to exchange or simply get a massage.
I arranged a swap with Latinomasseur a while ago and have only just got round to writing a review: worth the wait because his massage was superb! Great host, very welcoming and used an impressive range of techniques- thank you.
Tony and I arrange to meet at my house today for our exchange, he arrived promptly and after a brief discussion about preferences etc. we agreed that as he would be driving home afterwards, that I should massage him first and that would help his concentration with him massaging me afterwards.
Tony provided me with some nice feedback during his massage, which hopefully made it as enjoyable for him to receive, as it was for me to supply.
I was then treated to my first Lomi Lomi massage, I had wanted to try this form of massage for quite some time, my only disappointed with it was this, why on earth had I not had one years earlier?
Tony's skill highlighted a very competent and thoroughly enjoyable massage experience for me, so much so that I was disappointed he stopped. However, during a very nice conversation post massage, we have agreed to exchange alternately at each others homes, roll on our next exchange and many thanks once again Tony.
a4qs has a wonderfully natural massage style, with a really strong connection, taking time and (seemingly) deeply following his intuition. A wonderful massage exchange and I look forward very much to the next one - which hopefully will be soon!
Patric was ON TIME...very important to me...very congenial, respectful, fun, interested and gave a great massage with work on my legs hip and arms especially good and needed! I enjoyed the 3 hr. we set aside for back to back trade very much. He has a big body (6') but is not over baring in his work...just the right pressure 98% of the time...took suggestions and direction/requests very well!!obviously wanted to please me and provide me with a great therapeutic massage! I would recommend him for a massage trade to others looking for a good experience and exchange! He is open to learning new things and very easy to be with. Very satisfying...Shywyse
Excellent host in lovely surroundings, finally managed to meet up whilst working in Leeds. F&F is an avid and passionate masseur and like me hungry to learn! I'm sure we'll keep trading techniques in future as we got on favourably. Definitely recommended!
I had the great pleasure of an exchange with Lexby recently. We had enjoyed considerable disscussion beforehand so with both knew what we wanted from the massage - and this worked out well in the actual exchange. He is an engaging and friendly guy with whom one immediately feels at ease with. We had a very enjoyable massage and he is particularly skilled in delivering long sensual strokes. His massage delivery is fluent and he has a very good variety of different pressures. I look forward to another exchange before too long.
Had a really enjoyable exchange with tomharry. He is experienced and it shows. He used a range of strokes (relaxing and invigorating) and was generous with his knowledge giving me advice and making suggestions for developing my own practice. I would really recommend tomharry for a massage that you will remember.
Palm Springs, California, United States of America
Met Dan yesterday. Friendly, personable, intuitive. I felt completely comfortable within minutes of our meeting and by the end of the exchange felt like I had a new friend. Neither of us had access to a table but easily worked around that issue. I needed some deep work on my shoulder girdle - lots of knots there! Dan centred right in on the most important of these and the morning after his massage I am pleased to report how well both shoulders now move with some Improvement in ROM and decrease in discomfort. Thanks Dan I hope we can organize another session while I am in Palm Springs.
What a wonderful evening spent with Turu. He is an amazing masseur, particularly how he used his full body to glide over me. The evening passed so quickly and we both seemed to enjoy each others company. Looking forward to another exchange with him soon.
i didn't want the massage to end... iantree describes his way of working as intuitive...wish the professionals borrowed some of his intuition :) blissful is the only way i can describe his massage. looking forward to more exchanges!
I exchanged with n8whit at his home and he was very inviting and has a massage table and had everything set up nicely. He has a lot of massage knowledge which showed during the exchange which I thoroughly enjoyed. We are both hoping to exchange again soon !
I had a really good massage exchange with Din. He is very skilful and was able to identify areas of tension (in my case back and shoulders) and used a variety of strokes to help ease that tension. He has a genuine interest in massage and is generous in sharing his knowledge. I recommend Din and hope to swap with him again in the near future.
I would like to thank him for inviting me for a massage exchange in Cornwall (500 miles away from Glasgow). We spent a lovely two days in swapping massages and going around the local area (Looe, Polruan, Fowey, Boscastle, Crackington Haven and Millpool) in February 2014. He is highly respected musician and I am glad to have met him. Thank you.
Just had a great few days hosting 2013mazi. He came to stay and we spent the daytime touring my local area, sight seeing and taking photos, and the evenings massaging.
2013maxi is a skilled masseur: He works diligently on each area of the body in turn, paying great attention to each muscle group. He uses a mix of strong, long and light, short strokes. I was totally relaxed and loosened up by the end.
2013mazi is great company too. He is lively, enthusiastic and very considerate. I look forward to his visiting again.
It was a privilege to swap with kenningtonmass who has years of experience with massage. He greeted me at the door with a big, friendly smile and was very sociable from start to end. His years of training as a massage therapist not only revealed itself with his wonderful, skilful massage technique, but also with his advice as to how to best connect with people through massage. His wisdom expanded my views as to what constitutes a "successful" massage experience. Moreover, he is a first class gentleman and was always very attentive to my comfort both physically and emotionally. I learned a lot from kenningtonmass, and feel grateful to have met and swapped with him. I would gladly swap with him again, and I would highly recommend him to anyone who wants to have a total massage experience from a true professional.
I had a terrific time with Mike. He is intelligent, well-traveled, confident, and very easy to talk to. He was also generous with his time and attention. Mike gave a wonderful massage that included quite a variety of stokes delivered with a sure, non-tentative touch. I particularly enjoyed the work on my arms and legs. He also felt very present with his work--so if someone's 'intention' or 'energy' matters to you, Mike's intention to deliver a wonderful relaxing massage was both focused and spot on. Thank you Mike for a great experience.
Riley84 gave a terrific massage with excellent flow and rhythm, and the pressure was spot-on. He's also a great guy -- interesting, easy to talk to, and completely present. I found him to be a true gentleman and just "good people". I hope we will see each other again when he visits the States.
An excellent swap organised at the last minute, but I didn't feel at all under time pressure. SubtleRohan has a range of techniques which makes a massage from him a pleasure to receive - and to give. I certainly can recommend him as a swap partner, you won't be disappointed.
M123945 gives a great, intuitive massage. He pays close attention to what he is doing and is very relaxed in his delivery. His techniques combine specific, focussed work as well as long, sweeping strokes. A really nice bloke and highly recommended - I slept very well afterwards!
A big (tall) guy with a big heart and a gentle touch.
He was over for the weekend recently and we meet at his hotel on the Friday. Spent the first part just chatting and getting to know each other, and admiring the view from his high-rise city hotel window.
We took turns massaging each other. It was a nice, unhurried session over about 4 hours. He surprised me by having a very light touch, where I'm used to having a more high-pressure massage. I think by the end of it we were both feeling very relaxed. I slept well that night. Thanks, Callum's Dad. :)
I recently exchanged with abundance at her place. From the outset she was warm and welcoming and her sense of humour and being down to earth were apparent in her good personality. Her massage of me varied between firm and very soft and demonstrated that she knew her way around the body. It flowed very smoothly and even the pauses were appropriate and added to the sense of peace and calm. But it is the control and softness of her touch that I will remember fondly. Overall, a very relaxing and satisfying experience that I would love to repeat. Highly recommended.
Very hospitable and pleasant person, I felt very comfortable especially as this was all very last minute due to me being let down. I enjoyed the various techniques and the pressure, it was all very intuitive.
I would certainly recommend hardandsoft to anyone.
Dave and I had a recent exchange - which was a delight. Essentially reiterated all that had been said previously. He is a gentleman with great hands and he knows how to use them. I enjoyed his technique of rubbing in alternate directions to stimulate the skin. I left far more relaxed than I have been in a long time and hope to meet up with him again, soon.
I recently met up with Jaye and after initial meeting over coffee we arranged a massage.
Jaye has a nice firm touch and provides an excellent massage. Her hands are strong and has great energy, she gained in confidence as the massage progressed and it was great, just the way I like it!!
Her manner is respectful and pleasant, I would be happy to meet Jaye again and I am very confident to recommend her to anyone.
I had the pleasure of this swap with Vincent4. He has been to me before as a client.I do believe he thoroughly enjoyed it and concentrated on my strokes which he made an effort to copy.He has good firm hands used oil on me, all I can say is that he could be firmer he did do a good job. I hope we have more swaps.
Edoardo and I met for the first time yesterday. He conducted a really good, unhurried massage on me, leaving me very satisfied and feeling totally relaxed. His undoubted best asset is his ability to communicate throughout, leaving no doubts from either party as to how to proceed and making me feel totally at ease.
What a great exchange! Although he is a trained and (very sensitive) massage therapist, he was very open and appreciative of my efforts. He made me very comfortable right away. He has great touch and technique. I'd recommend him highly. Thanks, and hope to repeat!
Met Trowbridge just recently for a really enjoyable exchange.
He's a lovely welcoming guy, relaxed, and easy to engage in intelligent and interesting conversation. His place was delightfully clean and fresh with a good massage table all set up ready when I arrived.
His massage, while sometimes unconventional in structure was delightfully instinctive and effective, quickly zeroing-in on any areas needing particular attention. His moves and strokes were varied, sometimes surprising, but always a blissful pleasure.
He was a real pleasure to massage in return, in particular his readiness to give encouraging positive feedback as to how I was doing - so very useful, especially on a first meeting.
I found the whole session a thoroughly relaxing, very sensual experience which I hope he enjoyed as much as I did. Looking forward to exchanging with him again soon.
met up today with ash1yana
well what can i say except that thios is one of the best massages i have ever received very proffesional in a lovely private room there are no parts of the body left untouched which i realy enjoyed
the hardest part for me was to return the massage as im not trained or quailfied i picked up things from his massage to me and i may have done allright i could have done with using more pressure
hope to meet again for another swop thank you vincent
A great, great swap! He's a licensed masseur, so it was wonderful. Added to that his eagerness and his great hands and touch. I could've laid on the table in his hands for hours!!!! And a sweet guy too!
Wow I just left the most in creditable massage from Indyguy999. I don't know where he has been hiding but his massage was excellent. He greeted me at the door in a very warm welcome and went to his room for the massage. From the beginning we both agreed on lotion verses oil. From the beginning to the end his hands just slide with just the right touch from head to toe. After receiving his massage I would have bee more than happy to pay him his massage was better than those I have paid top dollar for. I can't wait to schedule another massage with him when he is available. I am totally relax. Bach
I have been swapping on this site for some years and found 'Blissful' to be the most professional and skillful masseur I have encountered. It was no surprise to learn that he had graduated from a recognised massage school. Add to this his warm and engaging personality, and one has a highly desirable masseur who will undoubtedly be much sought after. Every aspect of my dealings with him surpassed my past experiences through this site - and, indeed, all other 'professional' massage experiences I have encountered. I would not hesitate to recommend him.
I recently had the pleasure of meeting with M123945 and found him to be very patient, understanding and very helpful with the fact that I'm still learning massage. When it was his turn to massage, he gave me some great advice and his method was very relaxing with long strokes and very attentive.
I would highly recommend him and hope that we can meet again very soon
Talented, kind, experienced and very loving with attention to detail. From wiping feet to start with followed by an exquisite foot massage to making sure all housekeeping was in order and I was warm, safe, and had proper towels in place. He is a kind laughing gentle man and a great host with good honest strokes and flowing movement. A natural healer and spiritual soul he cares without making a big deal and is always clear about intent and permission. He has done many massages over the years with friends as well as perfect strangers and treats them just the same – wonderfully!
Thaivedic has a very professional approach. I received an Ayurvedic massage from him and it was extremely relaxing: I fell asleep - which happens to me quite rarely during massage. I look forward to another exchange and to trying his Thai massage.
I had at the pleasure to meet with Londonman recently and had a memorable experience with him. From our first contact, he was clear in his communication and was very welcoming upon my arrival to his flat. He arranged everything nicely before starting, including suitable background music. He admitted limited experience in massage, but showed an eagerness to learn.
He was very accommodating to my needs during his massage, and felt that he had more experience than he claimed, as he had a lovely touch and a certain routine that flowed nicely. His technique was firm at first, and ensured equal attention to both sides. Later, he applied a softer touch which was the perfect way to end his massage session.
It was a lovely and satisfying swap and I would gladly swap with Londonman again.
My massage sessions were so enjoyable that time seemed to just fly by. He has a wonderful touch, soft and hard at the right places. He's also considerate, caring, with a sense of humour, and made me feel so pampered. Good to know we both had a great time!
I arranged to exchange with Tom who I found friendly and welcoming - a very good host in his smart flat.
The massage was on a bed - not normally ideal but actually it was perfectly fine this time because the bed is nice and firm, so it worked well.
And Tom's massage style is exactly as he describes, and very firm. He's open to adjusting his style for personal preferencs, so it's OK to sat what you like or don't like. Nice oils. Everything is very clean and comfortable so it was a v.good experience. Recommended.
Look forward to meeting Tom again when it'll be my turn to do the massage.
I thoroughly enjoyed my swap with n8whit. It came at the end of what had been a heavy week for me and was a great way to unwind and relax. n8whit has excellent massage skills and he is way too modest about these in his profile. He demonstrated a wide range of strokes, good pressure, and an ability to really tune in. He is clearly passionate about massage and is also very pleasant company. I recommend a swap with n8whit without hesitation.
Had a great massage with Tint. Really good touch and intuitive when it comes to touch, identifying areas of tension and using a combination of different strokes. I certainly hope to meet up with Tint in the near future for another massage exchange.
John and I exchanged massages on 17/02/2014. He has a very naturally friendly personality, within moments of our first meeting I knew we would get along great. John has years of experience in massage, I can truthfully say I greatly admire his skills, and can only wish one day I will be almost as good as him, although I must admit that would be a very tough challenge!! John offered help and guidance throughout our time together, giving constructive criticism and guidance when needed. Pleasure to do an exchange with him, I know John and I have plans of future exchanges which I look forward to.
I wanted to take this opportunity to say what I pleasant experience it was
to trade massages with Cleancut. He's a super nice guy and easy to talk to.
Our session was relaxing and therapeutic. I like a lot of leg work and he
delivered. I highly recommend trading with him
Was in Leeds last week on business and had the opportunity to experience a nice massage from zemM. Being the visitor to Leeds, I was in a hotel and zenM graciously offered to bring his table to my hotel room and meet me there. He was a nice guy, very hygienic, and gave a nice massages. He did a fantastic job on my shoulders and backs (where I need it most) and was thorough on both the back and front sides of my body. I definitely look forward to my next visit to Leeds. Thanks!
MT travels quite a lot with his work & this brought him to Leeds (UK!). We managed to connect through the updates on the site & " who has looked at your profile recently" section. We were able to set up an exchange at short notice. MT hosting at his hotel, while I provided a portable table & oil.
The session went well. We were able to trade a few insights & give each other a good massage. The session I received was firm & thorough, yet relaxing. MT admitted that giving a massage is probably his favourite form of exercise!
We plan to exchange again, as his travel schedule permits.
Had a great massage from mike957 he has got a very light touch but affective. He knows what he is doing and has gained a lot of experience over the years of having other treatments from other masseurs. I can't wait to have another massage from him. Would Highly Recommend mike 957.
I had the pleasure of meeting Carol on 17-2-14, we had an unhurried exchange, I massaged her first, her treatment room was warm and comfortable.
She massaged me afterwards and was very considerate with regards to pressure and tempo of the massage, I know we are going to exchange again and I look forward to that very much. I have not applied a rating as I now prefer to do that after a 2nd exchange.
I met with Mike and had a great exchange, Mike is a nice kind gentleman who has great communication and extremely pleasant man. he give me a very effective massage. Would recommend his skills to others. I would definitely arrange another exchange with him Thank you.
There are so many things I could say about massageme. Aside from the fact that she is most likely a goddess who has taken human form making her absolutely stunningly beautiful. She has a deep understanding of massage and various relaxation techniques. Her hands are strong and capable, but every bit feminine. She promotes an atmosphere of calm and peace. Any tension or stress I walked in with was replaced with excitement and later a serene peace. She could tell my trouble areas just by looking at me, and took the time to work them out. I have a couple of areas where I tend to be a little ticklish and she was able to relax me enough to work those areas as well. I'm not sure she will need any help finding someone to trade with, but just in case I couldn't recommend anyone more highly. Every aspect of my time with her was thoroughly enjoyable. If I could have stayed locked in that moment for weeks...months...years, I would have. You will not be sorry
Had a lovely massage with Ndn this afternoon, I hadn't experienced lomi-lomi before (although he used a combination of lomi lomi, deep tissue and swedish techniques) so it was great to finally experience it after hearing such great things about it. There's no point repeating what others have said, all of which I agree with, so I'll just say: if you get a chance to exchange with Ndn don't pass it up!
Had a massage with Manhandle and must say very nice person you meet and chat with, ended up chatting first then massaging each of.
Very relaxed person and very good at massage, would highly recommend and really hope to meet agsin
First, I wanted to thank TF for the glowing review. My exchange last week with TF was exceptional. I complimented him on his communication skills in how he kept in contact regarding our exchange, living in Vegas I can say I don't normally get that courtesy on this site. His strength and knowledge of massage was just what the body needed. Highly recommended and I would exchange with him over and over if given the chance again.
It was a pleasure to be on the receiving end of this charming man.He claims not being trained, his technique was that of a pro. I was left pleasantly drained and was in a daze for the rest of the day. No doubt we will have more sessions if he can make it.I think I have found a good man for a regular swap. Thank you Mike957
I had a really enjoyable exchange with Mmatf who gave me a very sensitive and fluent massage. He is a very likeable guy with a good sense of humour and we hit it off from the start. I was put at my ease immediately he started the massage and he was inventive and spontaneous with some of his strokes. I hope to have another exchange with him soon.
Meeting with DAl2dal, he loves to share massage. Although not qualified, his massage training and give me a very effective massage and I look forward to experiencing his massage again.Met this week with Nelson for his first massage exchange from the Thankyou! Highly recommended.
