Deep Tissue, Sports, Swedish & 1 other technique
I am an intuitive and skilled masseur with 15 years of experience. I trained in Chicago and Oakland in various massage modalities, including Swedish, Deep Tissue, Thai, and Hendrickson Method. My dance, gymnastic, and circus background provides me the strength, agility, and body awareness for giving you a deep healing session. I work in a calm quiet environment at my house, conveniently located near the Bay Bridge in Oakland.
I am a very relatable person who is easy to connect... with. I am happy to be directed, if there are adhesions or tight spots on your body where you would like me to concentrate or give added attention. I appreciate communication, and can adjust the pressure to your liking.
I love touch, and it comes very naturally to me. I have worked with my hands my whole adult life. Especially during these trying times, it's so important that we allow ourselves the experience of receiving touch in a safe and nurturing environment from someone we can trust. Most importantly, I put my heart into my practice, and you will feel this in my touch. Note that this is a strictly therapeutic massage.

I have had massages from Mark now twice a month. Wow, he delivers the best therapeutic massage ever. I feel so much better after each massage. It is totally different than any other massage I have had. He uses his hands skillfully, plus his knee to put additional pressure on tense muscles and tendons, thus providing 3 points of contact. He is
also a great man with caring instincts. He engages me in conversation which further relaxes me. His studio is centrally located in Oakland, CA. It is a clean and inviting environment. The pictures you see are current. He is a beautiful man outside and inside. I can highly recommend Mark as your go-to masseur. Once you have tried Mark’s massage you will return. He is an 11 out of 10.

I'm the CEO of a major Football franchise and I enjoy getting a massage from the lads when in town. One of the reasons I hired Mark was because of his other reviews (I read them all and enjoy them). He got into the depth of my shoulders, where I hold a lot of muscle tension. I believe a good masseuse can do this, they are able to find the muscle tension without you really even telling them exactly where on your back or shoulders. Mark was right on the button. I felt comfortable with him after just a couple of minutes. I will definitely communicate him again for another discretionary massage appointment and he may just become my regular go to masseuse. Thanks again.
