Mark gives an incredible massage. Just the right pressure and he knows how to hit the right spots to release the tension. He is friendly and welcoming. Highest possible recommendations.

San Francisco means one thing to me: Marc. I'm a busy traveler with all the aches and pains that go along with that, and when I want to relax and get a great, strong massage, he's the masseur who gives me more energy.

I've been seeing Marc for about 2 years now for neck and shoulder issues. His studio is conveniently located in the Castro which is perfect for me after my gym workouts. His studio is very clean and relaxing with candles and great music. Marc is quiet and soft spoken which makes me feel very relaxed, when I see him for my massage. He always asks me if there are any areas that may need more attention as well as how the touch or pressure is. I would highly recommend Marc.

I’ve been working from home sitting in front of my computer all day. I started to develop serious pain in my neck and my upper back. I came to Marc and explained my issues. He was able to quickly address my problem areas and after three sessions I feel completely rejuvenated. Highly recommend his bodywork.

He managed to give me a good massage after I woke up with neck pain, I’m feeling much better; he also gave me tips on how to prevent it from happening again.

The massage was just what I needed after such a long time; I was visiting San Francisco and Marc was able to see me on a short notice, he is knowledgeable and not overpriced. 5 stars.

I have become a regular of Marcs. He really knows the body and how to relieve my stress especially in my back! I highly recommend his massage

Oct. 26, 2020 in San Francisco, CA (in-studio)

I usually go to Marc to get a stress-relief kind of Swedish and soft massage. He noticed I was tense in my back and shoulders (probably just stress from this difficult times). Even though I don’t like deep work, I totally needed it. It was amazing as usual. I feel like I have better posture.

I highly recommend a Deep Tissue massage by Marc / Rod.. Great strength.

He applies strong pressure in the needed areas of your body.

His office is really clean and inviting also his energy will make you feel very comfortable, he is a great skilled massage therapist

I highly recommend Marc. I have had several massages with him and each time he fully relieves the pain I have wherever it is. The years of experience he has in his massage technique and his professionalism is what makes him a 10 on a scale of 1 to 10 for masseurs! I know I have finally found a masseur who is truly a professional at his trade which is why I keep coming back. Thanks, Marc!

Marc is amazing on deep tissue massage. I run marathons and always come see him; he knows the exact spots to loosen up and where my body needs attention after my grueling workouts. Highly recommended.


July 24, 2019 in San Francisco, CA (in-studio)

Marc has been providing excellent bodywork to me for over 7 years. I travel frequently and make appointments to see him soon after my flight. He is able to provide relief from a long flight or a long week at work. He is a skilled professional who kneads all my stress out during his amazing massage sessions.

Sept. 23, 2017 in San Francisco, CA (in-studio)

Highly recommended massage. Great Pressure, also a really cool guy.

Aug. 16, 2017 in San Francisco, CA (in-studio)

Best massage ever! Rod was extremely professional and made me feel at ease. After a quick assessment he gave me a terrific massage paying special attention to my trouble spots. Left feeling like a million bucks. Will definitely be back.

May 10, 2017 in San Francisco, CA (in-studio)

Rod did an amazing job and I thoughly enjoyed the massage. He is very friendly and easy to talk to. He has great technique and provides a comfortable space. I will see him again.

April 27, 2017 in San Francisco, CA (in-studio)

Rod was really attentive and applied just the right pressure. I felt very relaxed after the massage.

March 23, 2017 in San Francisco, CA (in-studio)

Scheduling an appointment with Rod was very easy. He was very professional and kept to his word. I showed up on time and he did not waste time giving an EXCELLENT massage. He has remarkable skills and knows how to make you feel comfortable as he melts all of your stress and tension. The hour seemed to fly by under his relaxing touch.

I was very happy with my massage session with Rodrigo. He is in an easily accessible location and provides a comfortable room for the massage. The pressure was perfect and Rodrigo used plenty of oil. Afterwards, I felt refreshed and satisfied. I will definitely be back.

Dec. 27, 2016 in San Francisco, CA (in-studio)

Response to request for massage appt was timely and appt booked for appropriate time. Rod's welcome was warm and he has a specific room setup with a good-quality massage table, calming music, and heat to keep the room comfortable. HIs pressure was spot on without being too much, but working out the kinks. The hardest part was going back out in the cold as his bodywork, warmth, quality are equally good and I'm looking forward to another visit.

Nov. 17, 2016 in San Francisco, CA (in-studio)

Rodrigo is a great masseur. I had a good massage with him. He was able to relax me and worked on my problematic area. I will definitely have another massage with him.

April 19, 2016 in San Francisco, CA (in-studio)

It was an aswesome massage, the ambient was so relax that I almost fall asleep. And he's a really easy going guy, he help me and gave me advices for my work out. And always made sure the pressure was right, I really enjoyed it.
