Mark Forrest Dodd



Mark graduated from The Massage Institute of New England in 1996 having completed 1,000 professional hours. He then studied  200 professional hours with world renowned Rolfer, Tom Myers, (Anatomy Trains). Mark was voted 2006 “Best of Boston for Massage Therapist” in the Improper Bostonian. His review read as:

You won’t see any advertisements for Mark F Dodd’s services. In fact, you won’t even be able to find him in the yellow pages. He’s always done just fine by word of mouth. Truth be told, we’re a little reluctant to share the secret. Dodd uses a combination of Swedish/Deep tissue massage techniques on a clientele that includes some of the hardest bodies in Boston. He’s under contract to Boston Ballet (located across the street) to work with the dancers, and a lot of theatre people passing through town manage to hear about him as well. Once you have paid a visit to this muscular ex- chef, you might discover new muscles you never knew you had. There are no oils, no lotions, no wraps. It is just you, the Tiger Balm/Bio-Tone combo and Dodd’s gifted hands.

In addition to working with Boston Ballet since 2001, Mark has worked on dancers and choreographers from many ballet companies including Royal, Kirov, San Francisco, New York City, American Ballet Theater, and Mark Morris.

In November 2010 Mark graduated from “The Aesthetic Institute of Boston” having completed 300+ hours of studies. He currently offers aesthetics, facials, and waxing using European organic products by Weleda International.

Mark graduated in 1990 from “The Culinary Institute of America” Hyde Park NY and was sous chef/chef de saucier at the Ritz Carlton Boston until 1998.

After my deep tissue massage with Mark Dodd, who I believe is THE best in Boston, I will never go back to any other type of massage. One massage therapy session with Mark cured almost all of my pain. I really appreciated him informing me why certain tight muscles of mine were causing the pain I was feeling. Walking out of my massage I felt like I was on cloud nine. By body had not felt so relaxed and aligned in years. He truly is a miracle worker!
