Testimonials

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

July 03, 2021 in North Hollywood, CA (in-studio)

I think I found my new masseur. To me, it felt like Mark went above and beyond. He literally took my breath away. He knows his craft, his touch is involved and shows the experience of someone that understands intuitively when to be intense and at the same time gentle and caring. I tend to be a little nervous when I meet a new masseur, so I appreciate how Mark made me feel so comfortable and at ease the moment we met. He is easy to chat with, he is easy on the eyes, and most importantly I left his studio floating and thinking about my next massage with him.

I have been getting massages from Mark for several years now. Each time I visit Mark, his technique only improves; and, he adds many innovative features that make me so relaxed and wanting to book my next session.

Mark is attentive to the client and communicates often making sure the process is moving along for total relaxation. I particularly enjoyed the hot towels and hot stones.

Mark creates a specific massage for me by the input I give him … back, neck and legs need attention. He always addresses each area fully to my requests. After each massage, I look forward to the next appointment with anticipation. I recommend Mark’s massage to anyone who is in need of proper treatment and relaxation.

This was my first time booking with Mark. I was traveling from out of town. The ease of booking an appointment was a breeze. I made a sixty minute massage, afterwards I’m kicking myself for not doing a ninety minutes. When he greets you at the door with his killer smile, you know you have made the right choice. After a brief conversation he started the massage. He knew exactly what areas needed attention. He never asked if the pressure was good....he didn’t have to. Don’t hesitate to book an appointment...cause I know when I’m back in the area, I will certainly see him!

I have seen Mark several times in the last year. I waited to write this review to make sure he was the real deal. This guy has serious massage skills. He incorporates all the elements we all desire throughout the massage. His pressure, his touch, his attention to detail, left my entire body in a state of complete relaxation. He is warm, kind and a genuine man. 5 stars is not nearly enough. I would highly recommend him to anyone.
Thank you Mark! You know I'll be back.

Do you have a bud you don’t keep in super close touch with but every time you see him and it’s super massage and feels great to hang out again? That’s Mark.

I’ve had several appointments with him and each time it’s better than before. Mark is friendly, kind and has a killer smile. He has an amazing combination of intuition, strength and technique for his craft.

The oil, lotion and scrub products he uses are great. His location is easy to get to, discreet and comfortable.

When ‘Rona is under control, he’ll be the first person I make an appointment to see again. Thanks Mark!

I had my first appointment with Mark. He was easy to book with and answered all my questions before we met. He welcomed me to his Studio with open arms. His studio was clean, well equipped, and candle lit ambience that set the tone for a mind and body altering massage. All my aches and pains have vanished and I was left in a euphoric state at the end.
Book Mark, you won’t be disappointed.

I've been getting massages for many years both in spas and privately. Rarely have I had an experience as amazing as my massage with Mark. From the first communication to the last hug goodbye I felt his warmth and sincerity. His studio is welcoming with every detail handled to make me comfortable. Mark has a style that flows so smoothly and is unhurried that I couldn't help but just sink into it and relax. He seemed to know exactly where my body needed attention without me saying a word. I can't think of one negative from my massage other than me feeling a little guilty for not paying him a lot more money!

May 16, 2019 in North Hollywood, CA (in-studio)

I have been a client of Mark for a number of years. And each massage appointment gets better and better. His skill and professionalism is second to none. He ask questions about areas of concern before each massage, and is an excellent listener.
He keeps himself well versed in various techniques, stretching, with care for the anatomy.
His studio is very comfortable and he offers water, and access to a private shower afterwards.

Mark has a very warm and relaxed set up. He is an absolute professional who provided me with one of the best and most unique massages i have ever had. I plan to see him again in the future when i come back to LA. I would highly recomend him to anyone.

May 09, 2017 in North Hollywood, CA (in-studio)

5 stars aren't enough. Mark is worth going out of your way to get a massage and he's worth paying the extra money to have him come to you. 24 hours later I feel like he is still digging into my muscles. If I didn't have to fly out of LA today I might have scheduled another appointment. Getting back to LA won't come soon enough.

Jan. 26, 2017 in Los Angeles, CA (in-studio)

Mark delivered an awesome massage from start to finish. His technique is skilled, experienced and nurturing. The pressure, strokes and pace was perfect. I highly recommend without question.

Jan. 19, 2017 in Monterey, CA (in-studio)

There’s nothing robotic or mechanical about Mark. He was one of the most personable masseurs I’ve ever met. Chatting with Mark before (and after) the massage was a complete pleasure. And he was incredibly well prepared for the massage itself; superb pressure, a variety of scents, candles and all else that goes with it. Mark stands out most because he’s genuinely nice, respectful, welcoming and he’s a true professional. Can’t wait to see him again.

Jan. 20, 2017 in Monterey, CA (in-studio)

An excellent massage from beginning to end. Mark clearly knows what he's doing and was very responsive to my needs and really helped with the trouble spots with his strong hands. Highly recommend him to all.
