  • Deep Tissue Massage
  • Hot Stone Treatments

The health benefits of massage are numerous. Experts estimate that upwards of ninety percent of disease is stress related, and that perhaps nothing ages us faster, internally and externally, than high stress. While it may not be possible to eliminate anxiety and pressure altogether in this fast-paced modern world,  medical research has proven that regular massage can greatly reduce and to some extent reverse the destructive effects of stress.

Massage can lower blood pressure, reduce fatigue, increase circulation, and generally improve your quality of life. Consider massage appointments a necessary piece of your wellness and longevity plan.

Massage is also the indicated treatment for medical conditions such as back pain, tendinitis, sports injuries, arthritis, carpal tunnel syndrome, and wide variety of muscular and skeletal injuries and diseases. It can also alleviate pain and speed healing following many kinds of surgery such as skin grafts, knee and hip replacements, back and shoulder surgery, and broken bones.

Mark has helped clients covering the spectrum from back pain, sports injuries, and car crashes, to lyme disease, infants, burn victims, and quadraplegics.
