Osteopathic Manual Practitioner
Mark graduated from the Canadian Academy of Osteopathy in Hamilton in 2019. Mark uses a manual therapy approach to treat the individual as a whole, addressing the root cause of dysfunction. He use a variety of manual techniques to improve physiological function and anatomical structure, thereby moving the individual towards self-healing and optimal health and well-being.
Mark believes that a good grounding in anatomy is essential for understanding the body as a 3-dimensional whole, and he uses the planes and axis of the body to improve range of motion, remove fascial restrictions, and support overall health.
Prior to studying osteopathy, Mark trained in pharmacology in the United States and England. After getting into a minor car accident, he sought treatment from an Osteopathic Manual Practitioner where he experienced the ability of his body’s own self-healing mechanism. As a result of this treatment, Mark shifted his career path from pharmacology to osteopathy. He is committed to helping his clients discover their own body’s self-healing capabilities.
Mark enjoys treating clients of all ages, including infants, children, adults, and older individuals. He is committed to ongoing professional development, including attending courses in 2021 on holistic approaches to pediatrics.
When not working with clients, Mark enjoys playing basketball, soccer, taking walks with his dog, Miles, and cooking.
