"As someone who works out hard 4-6 times a week running, lifting weights or doing other HIIT training, I can beat my body up often. I’ve gone to Mark several times for massage therapy work and it’s been re”MARK”able. Specifically Mark, helped me recover from a back injury after a nasty slip off my porch during the winter with a combination of stretching techniques and massage therapy work. More recently, Mark helped me get through some pain issues with angry shoulders, neck, hip flexors and IT bands. He's offered healing hands through my active lifestyle, stress of work & life as well as need for a self-maintenance day. Mark listens and takes cues from you. You get to decide if you need a quiet session or are up for comfortable conversation. Mark can accommodate either. He checks in with you, asks for feedback and responds to what your needs are that day. Mark is truly a healer and one of the best restorative massage therapists around. His unique technique, keen intuition and positive energy combine to provide a healing method that is incredibly soothing. On many levels, Mark can tell you what your body needs and then can customize treatment when needed to help ease pain and feel better about yourself. It’s a huge privilege to have Mark as my massage therapist.  --Christina L.  9/15
