Overview

I’ve been a Licensed Massage Therapist for over 15 years. I’m originally from Rio, Brazil. I apply the knowledge gained from my training at Lincoln Tech Massage Therapy School and various continuing-education courses to give the best therapeutic treatment and professional service available in New York. My specialties are Swedish, Deep Tissue, Sports, Reflexology and Relaxation massage with the unique ability to combine all those modalities into a full-body session you won’t find elsewhere.

I’m a... proud member of the LGBTQ community and provide a nondiscriminatory practice. I work with all ages, races, body types, and gender identities. I will do my best to help you destress, alleviate pain, feel better, and be balanced. I have my own private, professional studio in Chelsea, conveniently located in Midtown Manhattan, next to Pennsylvania Station 30/8Ave.

My primary goal in a session is to promote healing, relaxation, and to help my client "let go" of the stress of our fast-paced world.

My unique approach allows us to customize your session to create a full-body experience that will have you leaving feeling refreshed beyond your expectations.

Testimonials

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

April 07, 2024 in New York, NY (in-studio)

Magic hands!! I was feeling rather stressed and needed to relax and my first thought was to book a full body massage with Marcos. On my first visit with Marcos I was made to feel very welcome and I knew I was in good hands. The atmosphere with candles and soft music and the relaxing massage from Marcos was enough to send me a million miles away from stresses of everyday life. Marcos has an ability of putting his clients at ease and ensures you are comfortable throughout the massage. The hour goes so quickly and that is why I have been back to Marcos on a number of occasions. I highly recommend him and I visit his studio several times a month. Thank you Marcos

Incredible massage! Marcos is an incredible massage therapist. He has a deep knowledge of anatomy and is exceptionally good if you're an athlete of any stripe. I went to him with some back troubles I'd picked up from a ski accident and he's been instrumental in my PT regimen. Thanks to him, I'm back on track and out of pain. But you don't have to be an athlete to benefit from Marcos massage technique! He always finds some sticky places in my shoulders that come with hours spent at the computer. Highly recommend. Thank you Marcos

Very magical hands. Marcos gives an awesome massage. Very nice, clean massage studio with great lighting and music. Marcos is professional, knowledgeable, and makes you feel welcome from the minute you arrive. The overall atmosphere is relaxing and he really takes the time to listen to your concerns and addresses them all thoroughly. I went in for some shoulder pain and came out feeling like a new man. I truly enjoyed my massage and will be seeing him again. I highly recommend him. Thank you Marcos.

Marcos was just WOW, simply amazing. The best massage I have ever had. Marcos has an excellent working knowledge of the structure and function of the human body allowing him to work deep tissue gently and effectively with essentially no soreness afterwards. He marries beautifully the science and the art of massage, with both the benefits of therapeutic effect for pathology, and relaxation benefits for general muscle tension. His devotion to his craft shines through. He is truly dedicated to healing and helping others. Magic hands!! I left feeling like a new person. I highly recommend him! Thank you Marcos

The best massage I have ever had. I am a runner recovering from multiple pelvic fractures and have significant muscle pain. Marcos listened to my problem areas and really focused on those issues; He really knows what he's doing and has many different styles and techniques. I already feel the difference and am looking forward to my next massage. His massage studio is beautiful, super clean and located in Chelsea - Midtown Manhattan next to Pennsylvania Station. Absolutely highly recommended. Thank you Marcos

Excellent massage! Marcos is an amazing Massage Therapist. He makes your feel so comfortable and asks you before hand what areas are bothering you and what he should focus on. Every time I go in, I never want it to end. The whole experience is peaceful, comforting, and just what I need sometimes to reset!! Very professional, great place and super clean. I highly recommend him. Thank you Marcos -:)

WONDERFUL massage by Marcos. He was so talented and I was impressed by his skill! The environment was very calm and relaxing. I love that his massage not only feels great while you are getting it, but is also... He was so personable and made me feel extremely comfortable. The massage was incredible. My problem areas feel a thousand times better and the rest of my body is much better off after the work done. Needless to say I WILL be back many times. Thank you Marcos.

Best massage I've ever had. Marcos was amazing. My 90 minute massage was pure heaven, exactly what I needed. Marcos was attentive to my health needs (physical and emotional). He was kind, welcoming, thorough, gentle, and effective. I walked away feeling relaxed and integrated, and convinced that I just had the best massage therapy of my life...till my next appointment. I highly recommended him and I look forward to seeing you on your next visit. Thank you Marcos

Amazing massage bodywork by Marcos. I have had received many massages in my life, all across the country. This was by far the "best" bodywork i've ever had. Marcos had such a wonderful presence and energy. I felt extremely comfortable during the session. He met all my needs and was very focused and centered on the areas that required more attention. I would strongly recommend Marcos to anyone. Whether you live in the area or visiting the East Coast, you must treat yourself to a massage by Marcos. Thank you Marcos.

Amazing Massage! Marcos is one of the most intuitive massage therapists that I have had the pleasure of receiving a massage from! He is very professional and was able to effectively relieve the tension in my neck and shoulders.I feel renewed and relaxed after every session with him. I highly recommend Marcos for your massage needs. Thank you Marcos.

Jan. 15, 2020 in New York, NY (in-studio)

I had a great massage from Marcos. I absolutely loved it. I've seen a few of the therapists but have ultimately settled on Marcos and he's phenomenal. The perfect amount of pressure and a great atmosphere. He's very responsive and incorporates some guided stretching. Absolutely highly recommended. Thank you Marcos

Oct. 06, 2019 in Boston, MA (in-studio)

Excellent massage! Marcos was fantastic - best massage I have had- incredibly intuitive and healing!!! I asked him focus on upper body, arms and shoulders and he did a wonderful job working out some very tense, sore muscles. With very strong hands - he is highly skilled at identifying, isolating and relieving tension. He has the perfect touch. Highly recommend him. Thank you Marcos.

July 17, 2019 in New York, NY (in-studio)

BEST MASSAGE!! Marcos was absolutely fantastic! His studio has a calming environment, comfortable table, clean, great massage cream. Marcos is completely professional, incredibly talented, prefect pressure, friendly, and made my 90 min very relaxing. His studio is very conveniently located in Chelsea, it’s clean and has a soothing ambiance. Before the session he asked for a few spots that might need extra attention and he went above and beyond with those, adding some pressure point therapy and stretching along with the relaxing massage. I highly recommend this talent man. Would definitely see him again. Thank you Marcos

April 05, 2019 in New York, NY (in-studio)

Wonderful massage body work! Marcos makes you feel relaxed the moment you walk into the room. As he talks to you and prepares for your massage, you can tell he really has an interest in not only what’s going on with your body, but in who you are. You find yourself feeling comfortably assured that you will be receiving a wonderful therapeutic experience! Thank you Marcos

Dec. 20, 2018 in New York, NY (in-studio)

Excellent massage! Simply put, my experience with Marcos went above and beyond my expectations.
He is very easy to book with, and worked well to accommodate my strange schedule. I immediately felt comfortable and at ease as soon as I met him and entered his relaxing, tastefully decorated, comfortable, candle lit massage space. Marcos massage was truly the best I have ever experienced. Marcos has strong, hands that's for sure (did I say he has strong hands). I personally particularly found Marcos head and neck techniques, coupled with the aromatherapy truly amazing. I am elated that I found Marcos and I plan to visit Marcos regularly in the future. Five starts for sure. Thank you Marcos

Dec. 13, 2018 in New York, NY (in-studio)

I contacted Marcos because his profile and pictures made him seem welcoming and friendly. He was all that and more. His very conveniently-located studio was warm and inviting and I was immediately put at ease by his open demeanor. The massage itself was all I could ask for. He is a truly gifted Massage Therapist with impeccable technique, healing energy and strong hands that found muscle tension I hadn't even realized I was carrying. I left there walking on a cloud. For the rest of the day and the next I felt energized. Highly recommend this amazing man. Thank you Marcos.

Nov. 09, 2018 in San Francisco, CA (in-studio)

Marcos is terrific!! Such a professional. Polite and charming, intuitive and of most important - gives an amazing massage with the added benefit of being somewhat of a healer in my opinion. Will absolutely book him again and again. Thanks Marcos

Nov. 14, 2018 in Miami Beach, FL (in-studio)

A great experience! Marcos is an experienced, talented, and very skilled Massage Therapist. Very professional massage/bodywork services, relaxing music and environment, and an easy location to access. He’s very strong and did an excellent and very thorough job in working out the knots in my back, neck, and shoulders. I highly recommend him! Thank you Marcos
