  • Sept. 2023: I've been going to Peter for a massage regularly for approximately a year due to lower back problems. I have gotten massages at fancy spas, 5-star hotels, PT clinics and "not so fancy places.” I can say Peter's massages has helped and if I can't schedule a massage for whatever reason, I feel the consequences and I need to get "back on track." He's professional, sincere, caring and very knowledgeable. Also, I appreciate an hour massage is really an hour (not 45-50 mins everywhere else).

  • Sept. 2023: If you're looking for a kind, caring, professional, capable, knowledgeable, highly experienced massage therapist, look no further! I've been seeing Peter regularly for 1.5 years now, and my body is so grateful. Peter is always communicative and checks in with you pre-massage about how your body is doing as well as briefly during the massage about how the pressure is. I prefer strong, deep-tissue bodywork, and he can absolutely deliver. He remembers my preferences for certain areas, too, which reassures me that he is truly present, always listening, and genuinely cares. I refer everyone I can to Peter (friends, housesitters, my parents...), and they've all left his studio raving and wanting to return. I can't recommend Peter highly enough!

  • Oct. 2023: I highly recommend Peter. His skill and intuitive listening to my body always results in a healing experience. I wish I could afford seeing him regularly just for maintenance, but he is always my go-to if my body is complaining with overuse, or if I’ve injured myself. I know a session with him will do me Very well, and get me well on my way to recovery. A year long struggle with neck pain was resolved in just two sessions. I’m grateful to have found him.

  • Sept. 2023: I've been to many LMTs in the past 20 years due to chronic back issues, and Peter is in a league of his own. He can sustain high pressure throughout a 90 min massage, but also can do a gentler massage to suit each client's needs. He's a great communicator and creates a safe, relaxing environment. The location is convenient for parking (usually lot space is available and street parking is manageable). Highly recommend for anyone looking for a therapeutic and relaxing massage!

  • I’ve been a client of Peter’s for 5 years or so. He is very professional and thorough during each visit. With the recent pandemic, he has taken extra precautions to ensure a safe & clean work space. He will be surely missed. His hands do really listen.

  • Peter is an excellent massage therapist, who has the strength to get very deep into muscles (if you want him to!) He is soft-spoken and knowledgeable, and he listens to what you request. We always leave there feeling great. Highly recommend.

  • I've had Peter Black massage me many times over the years and he is always on time, pleasant, dependable & VERY STRONG. I appreciate him as an excellent massage therapist and respect him as well. He will be sorely missed by the professional massage community on Maui & also by his clients & friends. I bid you Aloha Peter & wish you the very best always.

  • BEST. MASSAGE. EVER. I just returned from having a massage by Peter Black whose “listening hands” could not have found and treated my problem areas more expertly and effectively. As someone who gets massages on a fairly regular basis, I don’t often write reviews. Most massages are pleasant enough, but few compel me to recommend the therapist to others. However, Peter stands out. He is absolutely fantastic. He used to work at the Four Seasons Resort, an environment from which he adopted a multitude of luxurious spa touches, such as rubbing your hands and feet with a warm, damp cloth prior to the massage (feels so nice…) (more…)

  • I just received an hour and a half of Thai massage from Peter and he was absolutely wonderful! His nurturing touch, combined with his ability to listen to what my body needed made the experience delightful and invigorating. In the past, I usually came out of the treatment feeling sleepy and exhausted. My experience with Peter left me with a fresh and revived sensation. If I had more time on the island, I would go back again. It definitely was one of the highlights of my visit to Maui. I cannot wait to come back for more!

  • I have had chronic pain for years. I always have relief for days after a massage with Peter. I am always as my best when I come once a week. Thank you Peter, for taking care of me and making me always feel better. Looking forward to our next meeting!
  • Thanks for a great massage today Peter! I feel so much better!!
  • Very good masseur!! Takes out all the kinks. Relaxing to a point, I tend to fall asleep. Peter’s very professional. 5 STARS!
