Overview

The main focus of my work is Good Health & Healing Through Massage. What this means to you as a client is that I will always make your well being my priority. I specialize in Deep Tissue Massage through Myofacial, neuromuscular and Trigger Point Therapy as needed. Upon request I will also provide stretching of legs, hips, low back, shoulders arms and chest muscles. The stretching that I provide as a... body worker is more than one can do on their own as I am able to get the leverage that one can't get on their own in order to stretch these muscle groups.

I am also versed in Rehab Fitness, Sacral Cranial, Acupressure, Shiatsu, Reflexology, Sports massage & Hydro Therapy.

Keep in mind that if you would like massage with stretching it does require a 90 minute session as massage takes an hour and stretching usually takes about 30 minutes additional.

Many people think of massage as a luxury, however having a good massage therapist that provides the type of body work that I do can help truly enhance your life, through relaxation as well as refocusing the bodies energy.

***General Benefits Of Massage Therapy***
Massage therapy has been found useful in reducing symptoms such as anxiety, depression, pain, and stress and is helpful for those suffering with a variety of illnesses, including arthritis, fibromyalgia, and stroke. While more research is needed, massage therapy has also been shown to improve self-esteem, boost the immune system, increase flexibility and improve sleep.

***Increased Blood Flow***
It's a proven fact that massage increases blood flow through the body allowing oxygen to get to the muscles and organ easier increasing healthier living.

***Lymph Flow***
You may or may not know what the lymphatic system of the body is, It is a series of vessels that run through the body next to the arteries and veins, but rather than carrying blood is caries waste product that needs to be eliminated from the body through breathing, urinating and bow movement. They lymphatic system doesn't have a pump such as the heart so massage helps to move lymph through the body to the lymph nodes for exchange to the blood stream and then to the lung, bladder and digestive tract for elimination.

***Carpel Tunnel***
Clients with carpel tunnel problems can get significant results without surgery from massage. In working the forearm the tightness that causes carpet tunnel can be relieved with great success.

***Neuropathy***
Clients with neuropathy can get significant relief from symptoms as massaging the affected area which increase blood flow and help nerve ending with detecting feeling. I have provide great relief to clients with these problems and they are very grateful.

***Breathing Problems***
Clients with restricted breathing ability due to tightness in the chest can get relief through massage, if their pecs and rhomboids are tight. I have held many clients in this area as well.

The above listed are just a few of the things that can be addressed with very positive results. Please inquire for additional information.

Testimonials

Gathered by Marc from admiring massage clients to share with you.

Feb. 28, 2018 in Gulfport, FL (in-studio)

Marc you are obviously very skilled and a Master of what you are doing. You made me feel comfortable from the very start. I thought I knew everything about massage, but I mistaken. You took me to a whole new level of stretching and deep tissue like I've never been to before and for that I thank you. Looking forward to many more session with you.

Jan. 18, 2018 in Gulfport, FL (in-studio)

The Stretching session was new, welcomed and the massage allowed me to clear memories and stressors, in the form of knotted muscles that were, subconsciously holding me back. As long as Marc will work with me, will be how long I seek out his services. He is the best. I echo the sentiments of feeling better than I ever have. Thank you again.

Nov. 01, 2017 in Gulfport, FL (in-studio)

Mark is a well qualified massage therapist. Mark is personable, knowledgeable, and concerned for your well being. I have 3 more appointments scheduled and I’m looking forward to each of them

Nov. 01, 2017 in St. Petersburg, FL (in-studio)

All I can say is, WOW. This was not the typical relax and float away massage that I was expecting. But that's a good thing. Marc explained up front that he was going to stretch and work my muscles and tendons.

Did it hurt? Yes. Did it burn? Yes. But Marc explained what he was doing and why.

I walked away feeling better than I have in a long time. Now,I have to go back home and see if I can find someone like Marc.

Marc, thanks. That was the best healing massage I've ever had.

Aug. 28, 2017 in Gulfport, FL (in-studio)

A therapeutic bodywork experience like none other! Marc worked hand-in-hand to ensure that I found relief from the punishment of P90X regimen that had taken its toll on my shoulder. I was in chronic pain for two months and left his studio feeling like new again. Marc is a must for anyone requiring real therapeutic massage!

Aug. 09, 2017 in Gulfport, FL (mobile)

Marc is a true professional. His techniques go beyond a basic massage. His work is deep with lots of stretching and more structural than a typical massage style like Swedish. His wholistic approach and level of understanding the structural aspects is hard to find in a massage therapist. For someone who is looking for a deep tissue massage, Marc is the best there is. I would highly recommend him to my friends and family.

Aug. 21, 2017 in Gulfport, FL (in-studio)

Look no further if you seek skilled and strong deep tissue massage. Marc listens with his ears, mind and hands then irons and works out your miserable pain that you feel alive again.

Aug. 20, 2017 in Saint Petersburg, FL (in-studio)

Great experience very technical and therapeutic massage Incorporated stretching and very deep tissue Marc is great and does an amazing job breaking up all those knots of tension

April 18, 2017 in Gulfport, FL (in-studio)

Marc carefully listened to me describe my aches and pains. His massage carefully included working the various muscles that were restricted. I had knee surgery in the late fall . Marc's outstanding therapeutic skills helped immensely with my range of motion.. His treatment allowed me to fully participate in my exercises programme. This is all thanks to his abilities. I am not from this area , but next winter when I return I hope to be able to continue treatments with Marc.

Feb. 11, 2017 in Gulfport, FL (in-studio)

Marc has an incredible gift of touch that I was lucky to be the recipient of. His massage is deeply layered, and his attention to detail is beyond measure. he is deeply intuitive, and listens to your body's needs beautifully through his hands.
My massage was deep tissue, but he surely would be capable of accommodating any style or approach sought by his client.
Marc is warm, welcoming, and smiles easily. His studio is clean, large, with a comfortable heated table. Check out his own great photography he has hanging in his studio. The man is multi talented. Marc is an exceptional person and masseur, and is deeply responsive and caring.

Thank you Marc, see you next week.

Feb. 10, 2017 in Gulfport, FL (in-studio)

I'm a visitor to the are who was fortunate enough to run across Marc's ad on massage Finder.
I get a massage every 2 weeks back home, and that and PT helps with some chronic neck pain I live with.
Marc's outstanding therapeutic skills and human anatomy knowledge were so on point that after just this one session, I had increased flexibility and lateral movement. I am so impressed by his abilities, that I have scheduled 2 more appointment s while I'm here.
Marc would be my go to therapist if I were living here. I will certainly see him again when I am back in the area. Lucky the locals who can schedule an appointment with him. Studio, comfort, cleanliness, parking all were excellent. Thank you Marc.

AMAZING!!!! I have had profesional massages in the past. They were Mediocre at best. From the moment I met Marc, I knew that he was a true professional. He asked about any problem areas and other heatlth history questions. He took his time to explain what he was going to be doing. He has produced results that are OUTSTANDING!!!!! Stretched me like I used to stretch when I was on swim team and ran track in High school. All I can say is that I will most definitely be going back. Thank you Marc.

When Marc first arrived to St Petersburg I decided to give his services a try. I scheduled a 90 minute massage to include stretching. I have been disabled for 7 years, and after 4 surgeries I live with 4 bars, 8 screws, and an electronic stimulator implanted in my lower lumbar. I live with chronic pain even on pain medication. There isn't anything I can do without carefully thinking about what pain it might cause me, or perhaps even what long term damage might happen. Walking, swimming, stretching and massage therapy are all strongly suggested by my doctors, however there is always that fear that a new masseuse might move me the wrong way and cause pain, or worse yet inflict a more permanent problem in my lower back. Upon arriving Marc began by asking what I was looking to achieve from the massage, and in turn what I was to expect during his massage. He looked at the surgical area and reassured me that I would be fine. It was a perfect approach because I totally trusted him! He listened intentively and throughout the entire deep tissue part of the massage he was extremely vigilant to make sure not only that I was comfortable, but that I felt he was doing his job. And make sure when you get a massage from Marc that you expect a deep tissue massage!! The stretching part scared the hell out of me and Marc saw that on my face. Marc responded appropriately, but more surprisingly he stretched me further than I ever would have imagined he could have - and he did all this without ANY lumbar pain! I can't get in and out of the car without causing pain!! He remained so vigilant to what he needed to for ME, and how to do it without causing any pain it was incredible. I have not felt this good in years!
I am very anxious to continue using Marc on a weekly basis to stretch my muscles and to see just how much this will improve my mobility while at the same time hopefully reducing more of the daily pain I have grown so accustomed to over 7 years. Not only is Marc a down to earth guy, but an incredible masseuse!

If you're looking for a mediocre rubdown from an unlicensed pretty face, look elsewhere. Marc's massage was intense, therapeutic and focused on where pressure was needed. He constantly asked how I was doing and explained his process as well as what I needed to do to on my own and/or with his help to continue improving. Marc is serious about his work and the results speak for themselves.

amazing massage... one of the best I've had

Jan. 04, 2016 in Fort Lauderdale, FL (in-studio)

I decided to contact Marc because of the stretching he provides with 90 minute massages. I've been training pretty hard and figured stretching with a partner might help me achieve results i couldn't get on my own.

Marc responded to my text very quickly. The appointment was setup for the following night.

Marc's a really good guy and great at what he does. In addition to providing a fantastic massage, he spent over an hour helping me stretch my very sore muscles. Although the stretching was intense, I felt so much better afterwards.

I'll definitely be contacting him again when I"m back in south Florida.

Dec. 17, 2015 in Wilton Manors, FL (in-studio)

Marc is a very talented masseur. He knows how to apply the right pressure to heal pains from walking. At the same time the stretching part of the massage was very well done. Marc not only massages but advises on how to get the most from exercising as well.

March 31, 2015 in Fort Lauderdale, FL (mobile)

Awesome massage therapist. Best I have ever had. Very attentive and listens to your feedback. Very strong and deep. Not many therapists can keep up the pressure like Marc. Also a very good soul. Trustworthy and cares about your overall experience. Marc is a total professional and very likable.

Aug. 24, 2015 in North Miami, FL (mobile)

Marc is a very skilled massage therapist that intuitively understood my injuries and worked to resolve the pain that is part was exacerbated by the tightness of my guarding ... he was very encouraging for me to push beyond the discomfort to achieve mobility and relief. He has an excellent understanding of the muscles and skeletal interface and understands how to work those interfaces to bring relief through increased mobility. He provides a serious therapeutic massage that targeted my specific mobility and pain needs. Totally professional yet compassionate and caring.
