Notable Experiences

Bodywork
Deep Tissue
Deep Tissue Massage is a form of bodywork that aims to relieve tension in the deeper layers of tissue in the body. Deep Tissue Massage is a highly effective method for releasing chronic stress areas due to misalignment, repetitive motions, and past lingering injuries. Due to the nature of the deep tissue work, open communication during the session is crucial to make sure you don't get too uncomfortable. Keep in mind that soreness is pretty common after the treatment, and that plenty of water should be ingested to aid with the flushing and removal of toxins that will have been released from the deep tissue during the session.
Sports Massage
Sports Massage is a type of massage designed for highly active people who engage in athletics. Engaging in sports is harsh on the body and can often lead to injuries in both the short and long term. Sports Massage enhances performance and prolongs a sports career by helping to prevent injury, reduce pains and swelling in the body, relax the mind, increase flexibility, and dramatically improve recovery rates. Sports Massage is also highly effective in aiding the rapid recovery of an athlete from an injury by encouraging greater kinesthetic awareness and in turn promoting the body's natural immune function.
Myofascial Release
IASTM- Instrument Assisted Soft Tissue Mobilization is performed with ergonomically designed instruments that detect and treat fascial restrictions, encourage rapid localization and effectively treat areas exhibiting soft tissue fibrosis, chronic inflammation, or degeneration. The introduction of controlled microtrauma to affected soft tissue structure causes the stimulation of a local inflammatory response. Microtrauma initiates reabsorption of inappropriate fibrosis or excessive scar tissue and facilitates a cascade of healing activities resulting in remodeling of affected soft tissue structures. Adhesions within the soft tissue which may have developed as a result of surgery, immobilization, repeated strain or other mechanisms, are broken down allowing full functional restoration to occur.

Working with Marcus was instrumental in restoring the range of motion in my shoulder. 3 months ago, I landed incorrectly while being hip tossed and suffered multiple tears in my rotator cuff. The damage was so severe, I would wake up numerous times (10-15 times) throughout the night experiencing sharp pains in my shoulder. While undergoing physical therapy, I incorporated Marcus into my weekly routine and saw a dramatic difference in both range of motion and performance. His knowledge of anatomy and application of the Graston Technique was instrumental in clearing out scar tissue and adhesions surrounding my shoulder. I've continued to see Marcus on a weekly/bi-weekly basis for maintenance and would highly recommend him to anyone in need of soft tissue work. If you're a competitive athlete like myself or just a weekend warrior, working with Marcus will definitely help keep you in the game.
