Martin Marx

Structural Bodywork and Therapeutic Massage Therapist

I recently retired after a 36-year career as a Mechanical Engineer to become a massage therapist, another passion that is very close to my heart.  I first learned about massage therapy as a student at Gonzaga University.  I agreed to be the “demonstration body” for a classmate’s presentation if he would teach me his techniques.  After that I started using the techniques on family and friends. 

When my youngest daughter was 4 she suffered a serious face wound caused by a vicious dog attack. ...

I wish it didn't have to be in my disaster of a house because Martin only does out-call, but otherwise it was great. He was kind, understanding, and very professional.

I felt very comfortable with Martin and was impressed with his professionalism and skills. He knew exactly where my body needed the most work. As a former massage therapist, I was delighted to find that our energies were in tune with each other. I will continue to use his services.

Amazing all the way across the board. The best parts were the detailed attention that Martin gave to my stated areas of concern and the sharing of very specific information along each step of the massage as to what he was doing and how he was addressing the areas of concern.

I'm one of those crazy ultrarunning guys who likes to run all day and though the night and I fully endorse Martin for his massage expertise. Martin has a vast knowledge of the physiology of the human body and uses it extensively in his practice. In my ultrarunning training I sometimes run more than 100 miles per week and sometimes I need someone like Martin to put me back together again. Martin starts with a thorough analysis of my current aches and pains and works through the session to find their root causes. For example, I had been experiencing some inflammation in my psoas muscle close to my right knee for a little more than a month that would not respond to any amount of self therapy that I tried. I tried ice, compression, stretching, strengthening, self massage, you name it but this thing was not going away. Martin not only helped me with massage but also some stretching and he corrected some problems I had with posture that may have been contributing to the problem. It's one week later and the inflammation is down about 90% and I feel in a day or two more it will be totally gone. http://travelingbyfoot.blogspot.com/

I had an Injury & Rehabilitation Massage. Martin is extremely knowledgeable and professional. He was able to explain what he was doing and how to care for myself in between sessions as well as going forward on the road to recovery. I highly recommend Martin and his abilities.

The massage flowed with what was needed rather than what was expected. It started out as a sports massage but there was significant focus on other areas because it was necessary. Although this added time to the session, it was worth it. Martin makes appropriate changes based upon what he's feeling/getting from the client rather than some pre-programmed expectation.

Martin is amazing! I felt so much better after the massage. He addresses any issues you have and any that he may detect. He is attentive, thorough, professional, and fantastic! Once you get a massage from Martin, you won't want to go to anyone else.
