I wrote a review of the Hot Stone Massage given by Dayra at Isla Verde several months ago, and as I said, it was the best hot stone massage ever. Last week end I wanted a massage and Dayra was not working but Mark encouraged me to try Ryan. I am so glad I did. I had a deep tissue massage that was wonderful. It was a perfect balance between the deep, deep work and relaxation that was spot on. Ryan is a great young man whose English is perfect and is really a gifted massage therapist. I hear that Ryan's specially is a Thai Massage, which I will try in the next few weeks. It is amazing to have a facility like Isla Verde here in Boquete that can deliver a great experience from each of the therapists.

I could hardly walk today when I went in for my first Thai massage with Ryan. I have been waking at 2 and 3 am in pain, unable to fall back to sleep. My hip, lumbar and neck... I live with pain as a result of 2 accidents but the hip thing is new. I was concerned about even letting anyone touch me but knew that I had to do something and fast! I TRUST Mark! I had read about his new masseuse Ryan and the Thai massage... I had 4 true Thai massages in Malaysia and after seeing the ad for the 3rd time I picked up the phone. I am SO glad I did! Ryan read me like a book, never stretched too far or was I ever scared. You see, I couldn't even roll over in bed without waking fully and using my arms, feet, headboard or dresser to hang onto and I was helpless like a child. He guided me through each part and it was amazing!! I never could have stretched as I did today on my own. If you come to Boquete` or live in Boquete` make an appointment with Ryan for his awesome Thai massage!!!

Mark was a smart and effective body worker for my shoulder tendonosis. He quickly understood the problem, worked quickly and with compassion. He was very effective, smart and experienced. STRONGLY recommended.

I was looking for an acupuncturist and Mark came very highly recommended. I started a course of sessions at Isla Verde incorporating acupuncture and massage to relieve tension. The results were great and I have since been back for more sessions when I feel I need a top up. I have received nothing short of 5* service and value for money every time.
Recently I trapped a nerve in my neck and Mark was able to fit me in for an appointment within 24 hours.
This place is a must visit to residents and travelers.
