“It is very important to me that I surround myself with the best. This is something I teach my clients and the people I teach seminars to. I have had a lot of body work over the years. I am pleased to say I have been working with an excellent massage therapist in NYC: Marcus Berardino. Marcus is very educated about the body and helped me with some lower back pain I was dealing with. When he works on me I can feel that he is present and that he goes the extra mile. I highly recommend him.”

—Michelle Colt, owner of ACTING SUCCESS NOW and THE INSIDE GAME

“Marcus is my favorite for massage. Some just randomly knead you. Marcus draws on his knowledge of the body from his training in massage and yoga. After an hour with him, everything’s right with the world.”


“After my back “went out” I could barely walk for 3 days. Once I could hobble over to Marcus’s massage studio, we talked over my injuries and possible causes and he got to work. After the second session, I left walking upright, for the first time in a week. Marcus’s vigorous massages are great but I also appreciated his ability to engage in problem-solving to figure out what was causing my particular body so much grief. Now that my back is out of the danger zone, his massages help me to maintain a healthy relaxed body with proper alignment, so the injury does not occur again.”

—Daniel Wiener

“It’s always such a wonderful treat to go to Marcus for bodywork. As an LMT and yoga instructor I am very particular about who I go to, and now that I have found Marcus I don’t go to anyone else!”

—Christina Hatgis, co-owner, Mala Yoga

“For several years now I have seen Marcus for massages to support my overall health because his work is relaxing, revitalizing and therapeutic.  I also so appreciate that he adjusts his approach to treat what is present in my body…  he relieves pain and helps me understand how to avoid pain. Marcus is a healer.”

“Marcus is the “man with a thousand hands”! He is truly gifted!”
