My studio was designed for you, it is private, clean, and a safe environment where you can RELAX!
Location: SE Heights of Albuquerque. The major cross streets are Zuni and Wyoming. The studio is just around the corner from there. When you make your appointment, I will email or give you directions on how to get here.
Maybe you prefer to take your massage in the evening outside, under the cover of my weatherproof canopy?
I suggest that anyone who wants to experience a massage alfresco, you should schedule your massage in the evening or early morning to avoid extreme hot or cold temperatures.
What are you waiting for? I know your dying to find out what its like!!! You wont be disappointed, I promise!

I loved everything about this experience with Mel. Mel got back to me immediately after my initial contact, he worked with my schedule to set up the appointment, and he's such an enthusiastic and welcoming person. His massage space is incredibe and the massage Mel gave me was I everything I had hoped for and more. It was an experience I won't forget. I can't wait to get back to see him! It was worth the drive from Santa Fe and I'll be doing everything possible to set up regular appointments with Mel. Great Job!!
Mel is a complete perfessional. Booking the massage was easy. I was able to been seen the same day which Iis importnant to me. I was surprised at how spa like his studio is. He can offer in door or out door massages. Perfect for the mood and season. MEl's studio offers a spa feeling without the spa price. The decor is calming and peacful putting you at an instant ease.. He has an available hottub for before and after massages. His vast array of music allows for blissful a mind calming experience. Mel has a variety of lotions and oils which are good for people like me with sensitve skin. I am also allergic to oil. His massage was the best part. Mel carefully examines your body pinpointing specific areas that needs work. His attention to detail and consistancy throughout the massage offers a complete benificial massage for your entire body. At one point I fell asleep. He has the ability to change the pressure of the massage and the massage was pleasurable the entire time. His aroma therapy was the right touch to compliment the massage. Once fully massaged and relaxed mel finishes his massages with a very relaxing method of rubing you down with hot towels. This was the perfect end. As I feel a masseur should do after a massage mel did, he offered me water and a few mins to adjust as you may know is important for a massage to last. Massuer mel offers a 200 dollar massage and experience for a fraction of the price and give you the full spa experience. I over the years have received many massages but if you truely need to relax mels is the place to be.
Mel answered my request very promptly and called to set up the appointment at my convenience. When I arrived Mel greeted me and showed me where the massage would be performed. Nice room with very inviting colors for relaxation. The room was very clean and the table draped for the massage. Mel asked me what type of massage I wanted Deep/relaxing and explained what he would be doing once I got on the table. The massage touch was very firm and consistent. He paid very special attention to make sure i was comfortable and the pressure was fine. When the massage ended he left the room and I got dressed and when I exited the massage room he had a bottle of water waiting for me and Thanked me for allowing him to work on my massage. I would recommend Mel and would return again.
Mel greeted me at the door with a welcoming smile. He was very professional in assessing my problem areas and developing a message session to address my specific needs. Mel immediately focussed my breathing to place me in a relaxed state. His techniques and movements were hypnotic. His focus on the problem areas resulted in immediate and astounding results. His finishing touch was relaxinc stress relieving and euphoric.
Everything about the appointment was professional. When I initially walked in I was asked to fill out a sheet about the problem areas. We had a patient clinician intake session, which was very useful in Mel getting to know a little about my history and what areas to concentrate on. He formulated a plan and was ready to go. I was lead to a very beautiful tranquil setting. The massage table was large and comfortable; I appreciated that very much as I usually tend to have my arms dangling off the normal massage tables. The atmosphere of the room was one of the most mesmerizing I have seen in a while; very spa like. Waterfalls and tranquil music, offered a very relaxing mood. Mel's concentration was powerful. Ever movement was fluid like and he ensured that he was using the correct pressure. The massage oil or lotion he used was very pleasant and the aroma from those oils was very soothing. This was the best massage I have had in a long while. I immediately scheduled for the next session, thank you Mel!!!
I had my first massage with Melvin a few weeks ago! From the moment I arrived at Melvin's place, I felt extremely comfortable. He has great energy and is very friendly. His massage room is very clean, comfortable,and very welcoming. Now, on to the best part, the massage. He is extremely amazing! He uses the right amount of pressure and will apply more pressure if needed. His energy during the entire massage was fantastic. I will continue to go to Melvin and would highly recommend him!

Mel is wonderful! He truly enjoys massage and it shows in the work he does. I come every two weeks and each week he makes it a new experience for me. His technique is always excellent but he'll add one that always seems like the first time I experienced it. He changes the music, the fragance of the massage oil and even the linen (different fabrics and colors each time!). He amazing. The guy really gets into his work using his whole body. I highly recommend Mel. He performs his work in his home which is comfortable and has great energy. He is professional, caring, and kind. If you are looking for a truly therapeutic massage and a safe, fun and relaxing experience give Mel a try!!
I was glad that Mel was available for this particular night. Decided to treat myself to a 2-hour session. Mel was enthusiastic from the moment I contacted him for the appointment, getting directions to the session. He was prepared with a checklist form to get information about any physical concerns, presented me with a selection of aromatherapy scents and then allowed me to disrobe and position myself on his table, which featured a very comfortable armrest. His touch was firm, soothing, not rushed and very sensual. It was difficult to not voice my appreciate my appreciation for the touch throughout the session. After the session began, Mel was focused and not chatty. I look forward to another opportunity for Mel to work on me when I go to Albuquerque. No attitude, excited about his work, and very giving.
