“Incredibly gifted massage therapist - masterful hands and tremendous heart”
Reviewed June 1, 2010

While vacationing in Pagosa Springs, I had gone whitewater rafting which flared up a chronic shoulder injury resulting in incredible pain. It's "easy" to find a massage therapist, but not always a qualified and competent one. I travel and have had massages all over the country and work with my own massage therapist at home so I did a bit of research on the web and found Marcus.
Marcus was so successful treating my shoulder pain, I made an appointment the next day to see if he could move deeper into working with my painful (and years long) trapezius injury. He worked on it for 90 minutes and flushed out a great deal of locked in pain and muscle distress that I've suffered with for years. I was very grateful for what he found and was able to open up. The results were incredible. For me it is important to build trust and rapport with a massage therapist, especially when trusting them to work on some very tender and painful injuries - Marcus made that very easy. Besides being a very likeable guy, he listened and asked questions. His intuition, strength and ability to find just the right touch are amazing. I wish he lived in my area - I'd be a regular!

“The best massage you'll ever receive!”
Reviewed May 24, 2010

As a 4-year client, I believe Markus Hughes is an outstanding massage therapist. He customizes his work to your specific needs, always asking and listening about what you may need at the moment. He's helped me recover quickly from marathons and other physical endeavors, and he's very skilled and knowledgeable at helping someone work through injuries. Quite simply, Markus provides a unique, professional, high quality massage therapy experience that can meet a wide variety of needs. Because he is so adept at finely tuning his therapy to your needs, I would recommend Markus to anyone - from an elite athlete to a weekend warrior to someone with specific needs related to injury, age, or chronic condition. Plus, he's just a nice guy!

“Amazing!!”
Reviewed May 20, 2010

Mr Hughes not only has amazing skills as a masseuse, but he is a true professional. His competent and gentle nature immediately put you at ease. His incredible ability to find even the deepest knot made even my skeptical husband a true believer in regular visits! I can't go a month without looking forward to putting myself in his amazing hands and the deep relaxation he brings to both body & soul.

“Great Massage”
Reviewed September 26, 2009

Just got back from a week long vacation In Pagosa Springs. During my time there I had some horrible back/neck pain. I called Markus, he was able to get me in the day I called, and did an awesome job giving me a massage. I would recommend him to anyone.
