Massage Therapy

One of the best massages I ever had and I get massages frequently. Marc will find tension areas and work them out. He is intuitive in his movement and knows exactly what area to target. I didn't know I was so tight until he worked out areas I didn't know were problematic. I feel so much better. Will definitely use him on a monthly basis. Can't see myself going to anyone else.

Massage Therapy

WOW! I honestly cannot remember a time when my body felt this good. I have had some amazing massages, but nothing like this. I have range of motion like I'm a teen again. The tension, tightness, and pain, of which I had accepted as never going away) are gone. And I mean GONE. My wrists used to crack like popcorn, my shoulders like pop rocks. Not anymore. I could not lay on my back without intense pain from my mid-back to my neck. That pain and sensation is gone. These few things are only the tip of the iceberg of what Marc accomplished in one session, all without the pain of common body-work standards involving trigger points and lactic acid build-up. Marc is gifted beyond comprehension and was able to identify (with only his hands and his ultra-sensitive sensory perception) an internal issue related to my appetite, one that several doctors were completely unable to figure out for over a decade. Every area Marc mentioned was significantly impacted by the crush and torque of life (and by my being an athlete and veteran) were the EXACT areas of suffering for me. The best part is that this wasn't a momentary relief of tension like most massages are, it was a full-body integrative healing that has significantly improved my quality of life in one visit. I am a forever client and can't see myself ever hiring anyone else for my massage and bodywork needs.

I had a gradually worsening sciatica problem from a long drive across country and an injury at the beach. I was having a lot of pain in the back of my thighs, continuing down to my feet. Mark responded promptly to my request, was available the same day (and offered multiple options within the upcoming day), arrived on time and did an excellent treatment on me. I've had a lot of bodywork, including deep tissue massage, reflexology and cranio-sacral, chiropractic treatment, and acupuncture. Mark used a magnet therapy wand on the primary areas affected in my injury-- a kind of bodywork I've had in the past and have had a good response to. He also did some adjustments that reminded me of chiropractic ones, including to my feet, neck, and hips. Both these strategies were effective immediately and they have continued to be in the past few days. I have felt better every day. Mark communicated well and gave me options for how to approach the work, which I appreciated. He responded to my reactions to it and was kind. Most of all, he showed me stretches and how to use t-balls (the kind kids play baseball with) to keep the tissue soft and relieve my sciatica. I feel like I am 70% back to my pre-pain stage, which for a middle age woman, is pretty good three days after a treatment.

What a kind soul! He worked on my very beat up and broken body..... adjusted things and moved things and took away much of my problem.

I love this guy, I really appreciate his work and the input and advice he gave me when he came to see me last month, he helped me find out that I had a huge amount of negative energy in my aura and that my anti-psychotic medication was killing off not only my brain cells but it was also making me lose my strong connection to my beloved psychic abilities! He has put me on a new vitamin regiment that will help me restore and repair my brain cells and help me balance my brain again so that I may return to being my happy and creative old self again. He's a good one, so I am definitely keeping him and hope to have him as my future main doctor when he gets his degree, I completely trust his word and his work after getting to know him. Good to hear that there are people like him in this world, I am very happy that I got to meet him. :)
