Mark's first massage course received rave reviews:

"This is one of the best massage courses i have ever taken!""I had gotten to a point where I wasn't sure if this was a career I really wanted to continue but now I have a renewed sense of passion!"

"Two Giant Thumbs Way Up!"

"Excellent and expert instruction. Beautiful videos. These methods are far superior to what we were taught in aesthetic and spa training classes."

And now here is his 3rd massage course-The Award Winning Isla Verde Spa Hot Stones Massage Course!And, just like the other massage course before this-This is not your normal Hot Stones massage course.

"Excellent teacher! Love it. I think this is one of the best hot stone massage courses I have taken as there were several new insights that really helped. Thank you for a great teaching professionally and well done."

Mark discovered early on when learning hot stones massage that this form of massage lacked something, namely massage. The vast problems with most hot stones massages are that they are so focused on using the hot stones that they forget about the main objective-giving a great massage with the hands and forearms.

Mark shows you not only what his 25 years of experience has helped him, but also he shows you the ways to avoid the mistakes that he has made along the way.When it comes to a massage clinic or spa, your best asset is your massage.
