As written in the
“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”.
