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

We had already good references from Mark and this time we had the opportunity to get some treatments. We received a couple of excellent massages from Mark. Also due to his vast experience he gave us some tips regarding our problems which we have already put into practice. We are already looking forward to our next visit to Boquete and... More

Had an amazing massage with Mark the day after hiking the Los Quetsales trail resulting in some new aches and pains. Mark fixed it all! He is attentive, thorough and professional and located in an easy to find location. Have had dozens of massages over the years and would rate Mark in the top three best ever! Go, your body... More

After a long flight from Australia I was staying at Isla Verde. Feeling a little jet lagged I decided to have a relaxation treatment at Mark Perren Jones spa. Karen was my operator and all I can say the relaxation treatment was fantastic. Karen was so professional in her treatment. I came away feeling wonderful. Thank you Karen you have... More

I went to Mark with shoulder pain. He quickly diagnosed the tendon and treated it specifically to alleviate pain and tension. He also gave me tips and exercises to keep the problem from reoccurring. Highly recommended!

Tres amigas have been roughing it in the typical budget hostels and traveling by bus in and around the Pacific coast beaches of Panama. When we arrived in Boquete all we could think about was spoiling ourselves at a spa. The Spa at Isla Verde was highly recommended by several locals and we decided to go for it. Mark Perren-Jones,...

I have just spent a few days at the lovely Isle Verde. After a long flight from Australia my niggling shoulder issue flared up so I went for a treatment with Mark Perren Jones. We first sat down and discussed the cause of my pain and he explained about correct posture and some exercises I could do, which we practiced.... More

I fell and hurt my shoulder many months ago and thought in time it would get better. Alas, it did not and I was in constant pain with limited range of movement of my right arm. I have been to Mark Perren Jones for back issues before, with excellent results. So I made an appointment for shoulder issues. The results... More
