It has been a long time since I have had an opportunity to get to see Riley. I have bee going through financial difficulties right now while going through the process of getting SSDI. I have not had any income since November, so funds have been very limited. HOWEVER, as soon as I get the matter resolved with the Social Security, I will be notifying Riley again for one of his ABSOLUTELY FANTASTIC AND OUT OF THIS WORLD MASSAGES!!! Riley Puts you in a place that noone else has the ability to do here in San Diego!!!! Make as ,many appointments you can with Riley and feel all your stress melt away and have one of the sweetest men to ever work on youbbe right there. I can never thank you enough for all you have evr done for me all the times I have been to you.

Whatever age Riley is, he looks fit, healthy & handsome! My rate has varied on my visits, dependent on what work we are doing. On occasion Riley has been able to allot a few extra minutes to our sessions, so that the session never feels rushed- NEVER has he cut a session short! So far he has been prompt & is also very passionate about his work. I greatly appreciated the time he took on my first appointment, to fully understand my needs, it has really guided our sessions- and he has continued to check in with me at the beginning of my continued sessions. When I saw Riley for the first time, I wasn’t sure of both what I was looking for & what I expected. What I did discover was that he was exactly what I was looking for in a massage therapist & greatly exceeded anything I could have imagined! I was dealing with much stress, emotional pain & physical pain, and through several sessions he was able to help me with all three; • Riley gave me some great movement, breathing & visualization exercises to help with the stress • The reverence he offered- both my soul & my body- helped put me back in touch with my own self worth, and helped me remember my own beauty • His many modalities of massage skills gave relief to my hurting body & relaxed both my mind & muscles Because of his many gifts, I plan on incorporating sessions with this man as a continual part of my personal, overall well-being! Thank you Riley!

I saw Riley in his capacity as a Sacred Intimate because I wanted to explore issues and feelings around being more receptive in sex. I saw him over several months (seeing him about twice a month) for 90 minuets a session. A portion of our time together included massage and guided touch. He was incredibly thoughtful, compassionate and present during our time together. His technical skills are solid and I always felt calm, relaxed and more in my body at the end of each session. I found his sincerity and commitment to making sure the experience was never distressing or upsetting for me very reassuring. His touch was energetic and thoughtful, clearly focused on me throughout and he always made a connection with me at the start of every session. I felt cared for, respected and heard in every interaction. I would recommend him without hestiation and encourage anyone thinking of working with him to do so.

I was interested in a tantric massage/therapy after doing some research into the practice since I had some issues with previous relationship issues. I happened upon his profile and was interested in his services. He was very pleasant on the telephone and his voice and tone was most inviting. I mentioned my problem to him and he asked me some probing questions which required thoughtful responses from me. Anyway, at my first visit I was nervous but Riley put me at ease. He has a very welcoming and pleasant manner. He asked me questions related to my problem, and guided the conversation so as to pinpoint any issues that may be the cause of my problem. The massage was pleasant and very enjoyable. His touch was perfect and brought me great pleasure. I believe that Riley is not only a great practitioner but also a very compassionate individual. Though I came into the session with some embarrasment, Riley was not judgemental but very thoughtful; this put me at ease and allowed me to forget any hang-ups that I brought along with me. Riley has taught me to be aware of my feelings and bodily sensations. I have taken some of his insights with me and follow his advice. Curiously, while I went to him for some relationship issue, he has awakened in me a self-awareness that I had not nurtured before. And while I would not describe myself as a person of low-esteem, I can honestly say that I am more confident and at peace with myself and my surroundings. I plan on returning to him for more tantric therapy.

I have been going to Riley for several years now. He is the most caring, sensitive, intuitive massage practitioner I can imagine, and I've been to well over a hundred masseurs. He has never given me the same massage twice. I felt I had to write after yesterday's mindblowing experience. Yes, he can still do that even after my having seen him dozens of times. He is so incredibly good at reading your body (and takes the time to do so). His massage room is a haven of safeness and tranquility. He is constantly bettering himself by attending seminars and workshops to learn even more and improve on his already-formidable technique. Every time I visit him, I wonder why I've waited so long since the last time. I cannot recommend him highly enough. Wish I could give more than a "10." Thanks, Riley!

I have had more than a few massages, some very good to excellent...you will NOT find a more premiere therapist than Riley. He is very personable and begins the session with a little chat to learn about what you think your issues are and then proceeds to have you climb on his table. I have never felt so cared for by a therapist. I have also never felt such intensely warm hands, as if they had been in the warming oven, just like heated stones. His touch is, as I stated to him, ridiculously good, his sense of the body unparalleled. When he holds the back of your neck/head as he works shoulders etc, is just like being cradled. I absolutely could not get enough and I fretted the end of my 90 minute session. And while my session was strictly therapeutic, the sheer compassion in his touch had me more than aroused a few times. I am not from the area, but will definitely book with Riley again, and potentially explore more of a sensual session. I cannot even imagine.....please do yourself the favor of meeting this therapist. He is genuine and gifted beyond belief.

Riley was Incredible! I was a bit rushed and flustered on the day of my apt was scheduled. I arrived and Riley made me feel welcome came and relax before we started our Tantric massage. I would like to have riley visit Palm springs more often. I not found anyone here that made my tantric experience work like riley has. His soothing voice and Manor Coaching me to breath into my massage was a very.relaxing and enjoyable. I not found anyone here to make my tantric experience like this, NYC and La have been only city I have had this good of n experience. I definitely look forward to see him again. I even travel to San Diego.

Riley: Thank you for the fantastic massage! It was great meeting you and being on the receiving end of your healing energy. My back is very much better. I was really amazed at the amount of warmth radiating through your hands during the massage. Truly incredible! I'll be in touch SOON! Bill

Thank you, thank you, thank you! I came to your place not being able to turn my head to the side and I left feeling like and owl.. Plus you are so sweet and sexy.

WOW! This man is truly dedicated to his profession, as well as being kind, courteous, through and not to mention, he knows what he is doing! I went to him almost crippled from working on my construction job, and I left a new person able to move freely and relaxed. What else can I say except BRAVO! See you again soon. Palm Springs Jim

Good afternoon Riley I have to thank you for the session last night. You are very perceptive and thoughtful and sweet too! It was a very wonderful experience to be aware of my needs and explore my feelings. that is not my personality but I think that it helps me be a better person to those around me. thank you again and I look forward to having another session with you.

It was my first visit to draw my attention much Riley has had his hand all magic on my body in locating weakness and strength .I hope that my visit coming soon.

I saw Riley was visiting the desert and decided to give him a try. I live in the desert and get massages fairly frequently. I liked Riley's website and there was something about his eyes that made me feel at ease. I went to his hotel and when I arrived he had the room set with a massage table, candles. music and a bottle of water. He was very thorough in his questions and getting clear on what I wanted from the session. Never have I experienced a masseur who seemed so genuinely interested in my health and well being. Needless he gave me the best massage of my life. He was very skilled and new what he was doing. Had just the right amount of pressure where needed. It was truly the most therapeutic and highly sensual experiences ever. Not to mention his great smile and his very kind eyes. Great guy you are Riley. I look forward to another session when you return to the desert or when I am in San Diego.

Riley has been my massage therapist since June 2011, and I will continue to see him indefinitely! My search for a massage therapist had a dual purpose; I needed body work through massage (because I had been in an auto accident three years ago that left me with chronic pain), and I also needed healing touch for my soul. Additionally I was seeking touch that wasn't just limited to the four quadrants of a sheet, I was looking for a more intimate & meaningful experience. In my search for healing, I've been to over half a dozen masseurs, and NONE compare to Riley. Riley offers many modalities, ranging from deep tissue massage, Swedish massage, intimate sacred touch & has an amazing ability to listen. This man has a compassionate soul; he spends enough time talking with me to find out what stressors are affecting my body, so that he can be more in tune to my needs. When my body is hurting, he uses the appropriate techniques to bring relief. When my soul is hurting, he offers such a magical touch, which helps me remember how lovely loving touch is :) Through my sessions with Riley, I have been learning to "experience" more, to see the value in so many things, including my tears! My body has had healing & relief and I remember what it's like to know & feel the beauty of my body & soul. Whether you are looking for long term healing, or a short term experience, I would so highly recommend you seek an appointment with this AMAZING man :) Susan

I have never experienced such a magnificent experience before. Riley is an authentic and reliable massage therapist. After looking a little bit for real and professional masseurs in San Diego I made an appointment with Riley. My expectations were high but I never expected to be so impressed by his techniques and dedication. Riley is very attentive and from the beginning he makes you feel that he cares about your persona inside and outside. His massage is one of the finest massage experiences I have ever had and his conversation, soft and interesting, is very therapeutic as well, like if you were with a therapist. Riley is the total combo: Knowledgeable, caring and professional.

Words can not convey the deepest gratitude I have for the time/sessions I had with you. Think of me having you at my heart center chanting "Thank you" like a mantra over and over again. You are a gifted healer in the most profound sense of the word, giving unconditionally of yourself that which you believe will be helpful, nurturing so as to move one through pain to a level of awareness that promotes growth and centeredness. Thank you. I marvel at your listening skills, in your ability to capture the essence of my ramblings in a way that moved me in a direction of understanding and clarity. Thank you. Especially significant in my time with you, a time that pushed me through a psychological and emotional 'logjam', was your ability to use in a holistic always perfect way the, so to speak, various tools/techniques of your profession..breathing, touch, eye contact, the just right massage modality, reflection, meditation, movement, and so on. in a way that truly was grounded in love, caring, sensitivity, and soulfulness. Thank you. Know that I am at a much better place. I have come to realize that much of my angst is related to my accepting me for who I am at the age I am, letting go of fantasies that belong to a time of youthfulness no longer appropriate. I will be back in San Diego in a couple of months at which time I hope you will have time to see me for another session.

I just wanted to thank Riley for the wonderful massage this afternoon. He made me feel very comfortable which others have attested to. Most importantly I'm grateful for the help with my lower back, helping relieve the stress that was obviously built up, and his caring attention to my needs. His massage technique is very unique and special. The tantric method he used was especially appreciated as I haven't reached that heightened pleasure in a decade. I left feeling much much better and totally renewed. His massage and technique are by far the best that I've ever had and I plan on being a repeat customer.

Chris said:   June 16, 2010 3:32 pm PST
Riley was outstanding. His massage was excellent. I asked to have a massage incluced with the tantra session. It was incredible. Riley showed my how to truly experience the ultimate in climax without ejaculating. And, when I did ejaculating, the orgasm was beyond my wildest imagination. Riley is incredibly handsome, very polite, an overall perfect perons. I highly recommend him!

Pierre said:   January 28, 2010 1:46 pm PST
I went to Riley for a very personal issue and he was very professional in his demeanor. Though I was nervous, he put me at ease and praised me for coming forward. He did not rush me in any way, but asked probing questions and required that I be thoughful before answering. Anyway, I went in for Tantric coaching/massage and I must admit it was a very pleasureable session. He awakened in me some feelings that I have surpressed becasue of my cultural mores or religious beliefs. It has bee 3 days since my session and I can honestly say that even now I am discovering things about myself. I think that Riley is great practioner and that he drew from withing my soul or heart a something that was lying dormant underneath years of repression. Everyday is new; my perspective is different. Still discovering things about myself...all this from one session. I will be coming back for more sessions. I think that Tantric coaching would be great for couples. I know when I am in a relationship again, I will be using his techniques. I remain awe-inspired.

Riley is a true professional, a master teacher and a caring human being. His attention to your details, needs will always be the standard for return visits. Magic hands move, mold and take you to many environments and levels of satisfaction. Thank you!

Larry said:   March 5, 2009 10:50 pm PST
Thanks SO MUCH for the session the other night. On top of everything else, the part when you put you hand around my shoulder and asked me to go inside and figure out where the energy was --- wow! for the first time in 15 months, I walked away with NO PAIN in my shoulder, no matter where I put my arm. Then, on the way home, I heard a radio program about a guy who does a program called "Quantam Touch".....much the same thing that you were describing, using higher vibrations of energy to heal....anyway, I am forever grateful that you found your way into my universe......you have no idea how healing this process has become... please take care, and I will call you agian soon.

riley your massage left me feeling so very comfortable and relaxed thank you I will see you soon jay

Michael said:   November 18, 2008 3:36 pm PST
Riley graciously introduced me to body electric massage and it was undeniably one of the most profound experiences of my life. The energy flowed through my body like a dense, slowly churning cloud, beginning in my core then expanding, overcoming everything in its path, and opening into a dimension that I had never been before. The lightest touch that was at the same time the most intense touch I have experienced. Riley is a beautiful man in many ways and I am very grateful to have experienced this massage with him. I cannot adequately express the experience in words, and similarly cannot recommend Riley highly enough!

Professionally therapeutic Undoubtedly the building block for physical and mental health. As a Medical Student, I learned the indications, interactions, and yes side effects of many medications. I believe, and RILEY confirmed that therapeutic massage promotes a safe and effective option and/or addition to the medicinal regimen. I would definately recommend Riley to my patients as a first line defense against disease, as well as a complimentary adjunct to their medicinal arsenal. Thanks, RILEY for providing me a totally safe, incredibly sensual atmosphere to promote the physical and mental balance I so needed. EDWARD P, MD

I have gone to Riley three times and I will keep going to him. Each time he worked on my body he left me with a different experience. He engaged me in discussion to find out what I needed and addressed those needs in the massage. He definitely has a serious a unique method that is the best I have experienced in San Diego.

Richard said:   June 13, 2008 7:13 am PST
Riley, There is little that I can add to you Guest List that hasn't already been said except to say "It's all true". The pain in my left hip is all but gone completely. Your attention to resolving my pain was nothing less than superb. I will continue with the stretching exercises you described and I look forward to next months treatment. Thanks Again, Richard

My right hip was injured in a volleyball game 2 years ago. I had several therapist work on it but still felt pain. Riley used his holistic energy healing skills and released the qi blockage. It was a powerful experience. My body surged with electricity. My fingers felt 4 inches thick. He is a true healer, not to mention great looking and sexy. I will see him every time I am in San Diego.

M.B said:   February 22, 2008 2:42 am PST
Riley, I can't thank you enough. Your introduction into body electric was incredible. As I mentioned, I've read about it and was interested in learning more, but was never able to find a practioner. You were so gentle,kind and compassionate. I have never felt as cared for in my life. As I indicated, it was difficult for me to leave, knowing I was returning to the "real" world. I've had many massages over the years, but nothing that was as exhilerating while at the same time relaxing as the massage you provided. You made me feel comforted and safe in a way I have never before felt but now understand I yearn and need. A month later and my body still tingles remembering your touch. I only wish you were in the Detroit area where I could learn from you regularly. MB

Joe said:   February 14, 2008 1:09 pm PST
Hi Riley, Thank you for the massage this morning. It was an incredible experience. The feeling of the energy especially in my upper body was extraordinary. It was a great experience and I hope to be able to come back for more in the future. "I have had many massages in the past and yours was exceptional" 12/13/07

Brett said:   February 14, 2008 11:16 am PST
I've been to Riley and had the best massage I've ever had and I've been to quite a number of therapists! He not only provides a top quality massage but you can't beat his warmth, understanding and caring! A true professional in every way and a wonderful human being.
