Who We Are:
Mark Hibbard is a Licensed Massage Therapist and the owner operator of Steuben Professional Massage Associates, as well as a graduate of Finger Lakes School of Massage Therapy.
Mark and his wife Carla worked together and established the business in September of 2000. In looking for a location for the business, they believed that there was no better place than historic Market Street in Corning, New York. The business started in the lower level of the well-known Rockwell Center, and, after four years, grew to the point where it was time to move to a larger site and with additional therapists. In December 2004, Mark moved the business into its current location at 90 West Market Street, between Walnut and Chestnut Streets.
Mark is trained in all modalities of massage and integrates various techniques in order to meet the individual needs of the client.
