It was pouring down rain for 2 days when I finally said enough is enough. But what could I do in this small village where all activities are outdoor activities... A facial and massage! Dayra has the most magical fingers and she removed all the aches and pains that were lodged deep in my muscles. It was wonderful! The rain... More

I had often thought of having acupuncture but there were two overpowering reasons why I never followed through in the US: cost and my strong dislike of any needle. A longer than normal recovery from a fall led me to try something new and different in my treatment plan. I sent Mark an email, explained what was going on with... More

Dayra is a “hand-picked jewel,” a treasure of Boquete! The pain, stress, anxiety, whatever I have that has ransacked itself in my back is transported elsewhere and replaced by soothed muscles and a peaceful attitude when I leave. Dayra can do massages customized to my visits depending on my pain or any other condition. Her hot-stone massage is the best... More

Mark of Isla Verde Spa is my go to guy for all my back, neck and shoulder problems. Mark has done wonders for a shoulder problem I had, so naturally when I could hardly turn my head, he was the one I chose to see for treatment and relief. I had a total of 4 treatments of massage, heat pad... More

I have a nasty fracture in my right arm which required a plate and screws. It was very stiff and had little or no flexibility after surgery. I went to Mark for advice and he recommended acupuncture. Within a few sessions I have noticed a significant improvement in flexion and a reduction in pain. He also treated my back with... More

Mark really does live up to all his positive reviews.I can be a skeptic because of my background in Physical Therapy, but Mark is great at listening to your issues, checking your range of motion and posture, showing you the correct exercises and of course giving a professional massage and acupuncture treatment if needed. I plan on visiting him several... More

This is the third time in the last five years that I have seen Mark for an injury. Although I don't consider myself to be accident prone, I hurt my neck in a car accident, broke my leg two years ago and recently pulled a muscle in my shoulder. Each time I had an injury I saw Mark because I... More

As I prepared to leave Boquete on a long trip, my lower back chose not to be part of the process! Sudden, sharp pain from a chronic disc condition made the mere thought of sitting for long periods on buses and in airplanes unbearable. Enter Mark Perren-Jones at Isla Verde Spa, a well-respected and often-referred-to practitioner of acupuncture. Mark made... More

My right shoulder had gotten to the point where the pain and loss of range of mobility was intolerable, even with mega doses of Ibuprofen. My left shoulder was beginning to have similar effects. I went to Isla Verde Spa in hopes of at least some relief from the discomfort and annoyance. Mark identified some tendon and joint disorders then... More

Although we live a couple of hours away, a friend and I try to go to Boquete often for massage at Isla Verde Spa. Mark is thoroughly professional, and he and all of his well trained staff give excellent treatments. A big plus is that they are flexible in working specifically on areas requested. It is well worth the long... More
