Mission

Mark’s mission is help those people who are in pain.  Mark knows first hand what it’s like to have chronic pain but get no answers as to why the pain is there or what can make it go away.

Mark is passionate about finding out what is happening in the body, why it’s happening, and what can be done about it.  Mark wants to find the source of the problem to make sure the symptoms don’t keep coming back.

Mark’s Personal Experience with Low-Back Pain

I had been plagued by low-back pain, digestive issues, and headaches for as long as I can remember. I had seen many MDs and  therapists between by teens and early 30’s, with some successes, but my symptoms always came back.

In 2007 I was by far the worst I had ever been; I had to quit manual labor, was eventually given an MRI, and received a diagnosis.  I declined a low-success surgery option and spent a few more years searching for answers.

Eventually, a friend suggested I talk to Manual Osteopath, who ended up changing my life. They were the first therapist to see and understand all of my health concerns as a whole, and showed me a path to taking back control of my body.

After a few visits, I knew I had to share this amazing therapy with others, and enrolled to become a Manual Osteopath.

Inspiration

'The Health in osteopathy is far more than the absence of symptoms or disease.'

To be healthy, all of your body’s parts and systems need to be functioning properly.  Blood needs to flow, joints need to move freely, organs need to do their jobs efficiently. This allows your body and mind to deal with all of life’s demands and stresses.

Simply having an absence of conscious symptoms or a labeled disease does not mean your body is able to do this.
