Booking with Markus was easy. I got to his studio 15 minutes ahead of my appointment start time and he was flexible to start early. Markus is an articulate, personable, and friendly, and I was comfortable with him from the start of our session.

Markus’ positive, spiritual energy poured out from his hands. His intention, skill, and breath made for a phenomenal massage. The session was a combination of relaxing Swedish coupled with comforting music that almost lulled me to sleep (but I fought it so I wouldn’t miss out), Deep Tissue for those pain points, and some nice stretching that made me realize my tight spots.

Markus is a phenomenal therapist with all of the right attributes. I highly recommend booking with him for a unique bodywork session. Can’t wait to book with him again.

Markus is extremely kind and professional. He helped address some issues I was having with my low back & legs. I’m a runner and try to get bodywork frequently. Very happy I booked a session with him & will be returning soon. Also the table warmer he had was a nice touch during these cooler months!

While visiting San Francisco for work I decided to book a massage appointment with Markus after reading his reviews and seeing his profile on this site. I book with massage therapists frequently, but wow am I impressed. Markus has a special quality to his work that left me feeling completely relaxed and restored after leaving his studio. Do yourself a favor and set up a session with him, you will not regret it. I will definitely be returning once I’m back in San Francisco.

I have nothing but praise for Markus’ massage sessions. I like getting massages frequently as I travel a lot for work, and decided to book with Markus after reading through his great reviews. It was definitely worth it! I left our session feeling relaxed and noticed the pain in my upper back had gone away as well.
Do yourself a favor and book a session with him now. I will definitely be back, the next time I’m in town.

Markus is a true professional and master of his craft. His healing touch and kind demeanor left me in a total state of relaxation. I recommend him to anyone seeking a real massage, your body will thank you. I know I’m looking forward to our next session.

I’ve been seeing Markus for the past year now, and he has become a favorite part of my self care routine! He’s very welcoming and always makes me feel very comfortable in his space and during our massages.
I was recently experiencing an issue with my quads, and after a few sessions he completely resolved it.
Very grateful I came across his page.

My experiences with Markus have been nothing short of incredible. I’ve been visiting Markus’ studio for the past few months following some minor rotator cuff issues, and he has helped improve my condition tremendously through his work. I always feel so great after our massage sessions and my range of motion has improved greatly through our consistent work. Nothing but great things to say about Markus, and am very happy I decided to book with him.

I had never booked an appointment with a massage therapist online before. After dealing with some consistent lower back pain, and reading through some of the profiles on here, I decided to book with Markus.
From the first point of contact when I reached out, Markus was professional & polite. I decided to book a 90 minute in studio session, and was pleased by how comfortable I felt immediately being in his work studio and in his presence. The session was a great blend of relaxing and therapeutic work - I didn’t want to get off of the table when the 90 minutes was over. I immediately felt my low back pain had subsided, and I’ve been sleeping and moving around a lot better ever since our session. I will definitely be returning and recommend you book a session with Markus as well, it is well worth the time and money spent.

Markus is a wonderful masseur. He knows what he's doing and has large hands that just sweep over your body to relieve the aches and pains. On top of that he's a sweet guy and very friendly. Do yourself a favor and get a massage from this professional masseur. You won't be sorry!

Markus is a true professional at massage. His height allows him to maneuver around tight muscles all over, using his hands & shoulders to untangle knots in a stressed out body. His studio in San Francisco is easily accessible & very clean. He can also be engaging in conversation - but allows me silence if I want that as well. Glad to have him in the city for a few months.

Markus was professional, polite, and very thorough during our massage session making sure to address my issue areas I mentioned during our intake prior to the massage. I will be returning to see him again asap

The massage was a last minute thing and Markus was very accomodating and hospitable. The table was set up with clean towels, the ambiance was very relaxing, and the music selection was on point. His hands were very strong and he helped address & fix issues with low back pain I've been experiencing. I hope to set up another session with him again soon.

Markus is shockingly good at what he does. I’ve had massages before, but he was my first on this site. Even at spas, it can be challenging to find someone who knows what they are doing, but nothing to fear here. In addition to being talented, he is also very kind, and accommodating. I’ll be back for sure!

Met Markus by email and then text, and he was very accommodating and easy to work with in setting up an appointment. I booked for 90 minutes, and so glad that I did. Markus is that rare Masseur on here who is actually highly trained and skilled. Too many are on here that just go through the motions by running their hands over you, making the whole massage a waste of time (and money). But Markus was amazing. He really helped with a lot of tightness and soreness from working out and work stress in general, and combined it with an aura that you have to experience for yourself. I can't describe how much better I felt everywhere after our session. In addition, he's a kind soul, and well worth a try. Do yourself a favor and book him!
