Almost a native New Englander, my family moved to Concord Massachusetts while I was in grade school. My family genetics are Northern European and North American Indigenous (Lakota Sioux) (Father/Mother). As a young lad, my father gave me the gift of the nature as we spent much of our father/son time out in woods, rivers, oceans and lakes.

Almost a native New Englander, my family moved to Concord Massachusetts while I was in grade school. My family genetics are Northern European and North American Indigenous (Lakota Sioux) (Father/Mother). As a young lad, my father gave me the gift of the nature as we spent much of our father/son time out in woods, rivers, oceans and lakes. My mother raised me in the energetic ways and I learned a great deal about using all my senses and more in everything I do which gave me the foundations for embracing Energy Medicine later in life.

I went on to Graduate from Bentley University and found myself in the exploding computer business. Its here I developed my appreciation of, passion for, and yearning to become involved in Massage Therapy. Managing Europe and the PAC rim for a number of products, services, and business development activities allowed me to experience hundreds of massages in dozens of countries over 20 years.

Fortunately I had a great travel mentor and he encouraged me to keep an open mind and to just experience massage the same way people around the world do. It was fascinating, exhilarating, and sometimes really really interesting. I learned more about my body from receiving massage therapy than I did from any other sports activities in my life. It was through receiving that I began to feel the relationship each muscle has with other soft tissues and began to perceive the kinetic chain and how it works.

After a foray into the dot com world for a number of years, things changed and I started to feel the pull towards the healing arts. I began with a mentor in energy medicine, then reflexology and then finally massage therapy. During the first two explorations I lived in Peterborough and Hancock NH. It was a great transition place for me as I went from hotels, airports and conference rooms to the mountains, rivers, forests and nature of NH.

Immersion is what I needed and got. I also chased a life-long dream of writing a novel. I now had the time to write and I did. I wrote and published two psychological thrillers; both about the energetic ways and the marvels of nature. My books are not for everyone but if you like Koontz, King and others you will love my creations.

A number of years later, I graduated from massage school here in RI and now live in Smithfield on Georgiaville Pond with my Wife and English Retriever. Right after graduating I took the position of head therapist at a brand new SPA in East Providence where I spent almost 4 years working with and training/mentoring dozens of Therapists and thousands of clients.

My clients love the passion I bring to the table and the skills learned from decades of receiving and years of giving massage. My style is eclectic, meaningful and skilled. My clients appreciate my deep understanding of the human body and the energetic therapy that comes out naturally from my hands.

REVIEWS for my Bodywork or Coaching services

by Amy on Jan 13
Best massage I’ve ever had!
by Anonymous on Dec 22
Intuitive knowledge of pressure, good communication.

Best massage I have ever had. Mark is very intuitive and takes time talking to you and listen to you pain issues. Providence Massage is a beautiful location and Mark shows excellent professionalism and TLC. I would highly recommend going.
by Erin on Oct 16
Mark was a engaged professional who took a personal approach to making sure that my corrective needs were met. He made me feel comfortable - yet also pushed my muscles to a point where it hurt (in a good way). He communicated throughout the massage while also providing a tranquil, relaxing environment.
by Andrew on Sep 05
Best 2 hours in recent memory. Intuitive touch, calming, relaxing, un-rushed, dozed off and on. Have already booked a second session.
by Trish on Aug 29
Mark's outstanding skill and knowledge made a huge impact to reduce significant heel and knee pain I was experiencing. I would highly recommend him. Trish M.

by Linda on Jul 28
Mark listens to you and does a great job. I always leave pain free.
by Anonymous on Jul 17
Very good understanding of what the issues are, excellent plan designed for therapy, and candid too about what the limits of massage are.
by AdA on May 11
I have no complaints with my massage. I have been here twice so far. Mark listened to my needs and took care of my problem areas. I walked out of there feeling relaxed and recharged. This is my new go to place for a massage. I highly recommend you give him a try.
