Outstanding Massage bodywork! Marcos is an excellent Massage Therapist. He innately knows the areas that need special attention and brings relief to these areas as well as relaxing you whole body, mind, and spirit.

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.

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

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.

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

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

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

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.

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

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
