Amazing is how I feel after a massage by Mark. I have been going to Mark almost 4 years now. One of the reasons I chose Mark is because of his overall background…a Yoga Instructor and his holistic spiritual approach follow through in his healing hands. He truly is gifted. Thank You Mark Pasley, with my stresses of working in the healthcare field, your energy work helps me get by. I look forward to many more therapeutic sessions with you.

Mark is an incredibly skilled masseuse, and it’s always the highlight of my week to have a session with him. His combination of shiatsu and swedish is phenomenal. Sure, he’s a kind, strong, gentle guy and a great communicator, but the main thing is that he can help you feel really fantastic.

I have been going to Mark for about five years. I live in Brooklyn NY but come out here to see my sister at least twice a year. Over the years I have come to realize that, although my sister and nephew are my primary draw, I also visit so I can go to Mark for a ‘tune up.’ I’ve read other reviews that focus on relaxation and muscle soreness. For me Mark is much more than a muscle massager. His shiatsu has been energy giving, optimism restoring and overall a balancing experience. Sometimes I feel transformed in a holistic and maybe spiritual way. Since I discovered Mark I have endeavored to find his equal nearer me on the east coast. I think I might have gone to well over 10 other massage therapists. But so far I can’t find any one who is equally kind and caring and skilled and restorative in their practice. I’ll keep trying (and if you know anyone tell me) but in the meantime I’ll keep coming to Berkeley and looking forward to being renewed by Mark and his entire being.

Mark’s shiatsu & Swedish skills are very effective in undoing the chronic tension in my back & legs. He always listens well before each session to my description of symptoms, and addresses my issues. His relaxed, warm presence and deep skills combine to provide a relaxing and highly therapeutic session.

I have been a client of Mark’s for over two years now, and always look forward to my monthly massage appointment, knowing that it will be a welcome relief from life’s hectic pace. He never lets me down! He is very skilled at Swedish and Shiatsu, and will adapt his technique to focus more on any problem areas you may be having. The setup at his home is very nice, warm and comfortable. And Mark has a great personality that puts you at ease – even his voice is relaxing. He is very knowledgeable in the expanded range of his field, and gives great tips for healthy living in general at no extra cost! I’m hooked!

I consider Mark a wellness guru. He is knowledgeable, professional, spiritual, and everything you could possibly want in a yoga teacher and massage therapist. I always leave his sessions feeling rejuvenated.

I met Mark a year and a half ago, when he gave me my first Shiatsu massage. It was the best massage I’ve ever had, and I’ve been seeing him regularly ever since. I had no idea massage could offer so many benefits to a basically fit person. In addition to relaxing tense muscles and aligning my body, Mark’s Shiatsu massages seem to improve my digestion and immunity and have really helped me manage stress through some challenging times. I feel more relaxed, effective and healthier.

Mark is the tallest massage therapist I have ever had! This means a lot! Not only is he caring, funny and spiritual, but he can stand above my head and stretch his arms all the way down my spine and back up. I am going through a very difficult time and have gone from one massage every few months, to one every other week. The benefits infinitely surpass the cost. Mark’s Swedish/Deep tissue massage soothes, releases tension and spreads bliss to every cell.
