From the Tibetan bells to Mark’s explanation of every aspect of your massage, the Dharma experience is exquisite. Mark’s ability to modulate the pressure he applies while still giving a complete massage is noteworthy, constantly asking how you are feeling. It’s well worth the time and I can assure you that you’ll become a regular... and your body and mind will thank you.

Mark is great! Super professional and communicative. I feel amazing after working with him and he goes out of his way to explain why he's working on certain areas and what muscles live there and are causing pain. Very friendly too! Highly recommend!

Mark is a master. It was the best massage ever--every time! I can not recommend enough.

Mark has been very beneficial to me since the first time I saw him. I don't have major issues, but my body, specifically my upper back, is generally tight, and Mark finds a way to loosen it up every time! I always feel recovered the next morning. Mark also has an incredible understanding of the body and constantly communicates with you about pressure levels and if anything specific hurts or doesn't feel right. I highly recommend Mark to anyone experiencing tightness or pain, or even to anyone who simply wants an hour or two of relaxation!

Mark has been an instrumental asset for my whole family. He began working on my husband who has chronic neck and shoulder pain. then he worked on my son opening up his shoulders, then my daughter who has low back and hamstring challenges from English riding and Field hockey, then he began working on me as I carry stress in my shoulders. He is professional, warm and knowledgeable. Most importantly, he relieves our body aches and pains with compassion and grace.

My experience with Mark has been top notch. I have chronic low back issues and Mark has alleviated so much of my pain and lack of range of motion. He is so knowledgeable in regards to human anatomy and physiology and how to manipulate it through massage. He is always very professional making my experience relaxing as well as therapeutic. My husband recently had Mark come to our house for an 80 min deep tissue session to treat his neck pain due to bad posture and stress. My husband walked away feeling so much better and with a wealth of knowledge regarding posture, hydration and overall health. We would both highly recommend Mark!

Mark is a true healer and the best massage therapist that I have ever been to. When you enter the beautiful space at Dharma, you immediately feel relaxed and taken care of. Mark is truly knowledgeable and you always walk away from the session feeling that you have done something truly healing for yourself.

Incredibly relaxing and rejuvenating at the same time. I had forgotten what being totally relaxed felt like. The heated table just added to the experience to make it more wonderful than anything I’ve experienced in years. Who knew doing something so healthy for your body could actually feel so good! 24 hours later and I’m still amazed at the flexibility I’ve been able to recover. Best investment I’ve made ever!
