Mark Kerschenmen NVMT #8412
Bodywork has been a passion for me ever since I took my frist massage class, and bought my first massage table over 20 years ago. I completed the massage program at Truckee Meadows Community College in 2011, and since then, I have continued to be a student, and add to my education in the massage and bodywork field. I prefer to use a variety of massage modalities in my therapeutic and relaxation sessions. These include: deep tissue, sports massage, cupping, Gua Sha, hot stone, and chair massage.
I consider it a priviledge to be allowed to work on the human body. To gain the confidence and trust of an individual, and to use the tools and knowledge I posses, to improve that person’s wellbeing, is a great compliment to me. It’s my way of enriching life, and giving back to the human experience
