Relax & Unwind






Dharma is a Sanskrit word that means “right way of living, fulfilling our highest purpose, pursuing our truest calling, and following our sacred duty”.



Studies show that regular massage reduces stress, focuses attention, and energizes the mind, body and spirit. This helps us find our own truth and our ability to care for ourselves and others.

During massage, our body releases energy which allows us to align and heal.  Endorphins release and enter the blood stream allowing muscles and joints to relax. Hormones such as oxytocin and dopamine release to facilitate healing and reduce pain.  This is partially why our bodies feel so light and airy following a massage.

Our body is an electronic bundle of energy. Our bones, muscles and tissues have energetic current. When stressed, anxious, and emotionally taxed, our current is blocked and our energy stuck. Think of a kinked hose that blocks water from flowing. When our bodies relax, our energy untangles, tension is relieved and oxygenated blood flows to release tight muscles and joints, freeing up our flow.

When we flow, we are experiencing wellness – which means we are proactive in preventative care by making our body a temple of calm.

Dharma massage helps you find calm and recapture your physical, spiritual, mental, and emotional balance. Dharma massage is a form of the ancient “laying on” of hands. Studies show that people who are touched become more available, loving and responsive. Dharma massage deepens and magnifies our ability to dive into the heart of what ails us. Feeling liberated, we are free to embrace our spirit.

Dharma Massage is soul work accomplished by the science of touch. At Dharma, we listen to you deeply and help to set you free.


Each Dharma massage is custom designed for your personal wellness.

Dharma’s Intake Form assesses your overall health, injuries, lifestyle, exercise, hydration, work habits, and massage goals. Before each session, we meet briefly to explore your needs, answer any questions you may have and further customize your experience.

Dharma is a beautiful, calm, safe haven. You will instantly relax once you walk in. Clients are able to settle upon arrival – breathe deeply as strain releases. Our space is clean and airy with loads of natural light, under high industrial ceilings in a renovated factory.

It is casually intimate and luxurious, all-natural, and designed for maximum comfort. The oils and lotions are water soluble. Aromatherapy is offered for those interested in diffusion during a session. The sheets are 100% cotton and of exquisite quality. The treatment room and table are spacious. We begin and end each session with Tibetan singing bowls discovered during my travels through India – which quiet the mind and body.

Dharma Massage transforms you. Stress turns to peace. Frenzy to calm. Worry to balance and irritability to harmony. For our athletes, Dharma helps to increase performance and improve alignment allowing you to excel.

We work wonders at Dharma Massage.


I have always believed that the science of touch can facilitate physical and emotional healing which is why I love this work. Clients often remark how changed they feel following a massage and have nicknamed me a “massage minister.”

Mark combines his skill and training as a massage therapist with his spiritual power allowing him to resolve conventional muscle and joint ailments while pouring pure energy into your session. Mark’s hands are a conduit of a larger grace.
