Nirvana's Team


Communication between our clients and therapists is a must. If our pressure isn’t ‘just right’, please let us know.  Nirvana Massage Therapy understands that the same therapy isn’t appropriate for every client, so sessions begin with a review of your history and therapy is customized to provide you the most benefit. Clients come to us for different reasons. Many come to us for our deep tissue, others for sports massage to rehab an injury or as part of their training program. Whatever brings you to Nirvana Massage Therapy, we look forward to helping you achieve greater wellness.

Marc began his journey as a massage therapist in 1997, but the growing boom in the Internet and Technology industries interrupted his intended path. Despite years as a successful entrepreneur in web development, massage therapy was a passion that he acknowledged and accepted as his true calling.  Marc is dedicated to helping every client achieve their desired goal from each session. "At the end of the day, I genuinely feel I have made a difference in someone’s life, felt the glow of his or her aura and, helped to make that glow brighter. My commitment to helping others, making a difference, helping one person at a time to recognize and achieve their wellness goals runs deep for me."​
