Mark Rowsell

RMT, Thai Yoga Massage, Reflexology, No Needles Acupuncture...

Mark has a passion to help others to pursue a healthier lifestyle.
With extensive travels in south East Asia, Mark has studied the eastern healing arts for over 20 years and loves to help others understand the holistic nature of health and healing. Starting off with Reflexology and Acupuncture in Canada, then Acupuncture and Traditional Thai Massage in Sri Lanka and Thailand, he has found a way to approach pain relief and overall wellness by using hands on and a no-needles form of acupuncture that stimulates the acu-points with a minute current of electricity, allowing him to rebalance and eliminate pain in a very short time.
Returning to College years later to accomplish a Registered Massage Therapy diploma with the Canadian College of Massage and Hydrotherapy, Mark gained a more grounded application to his knowledge and practice of eastern healing modalities.
Mark’s primary focus is to alleviate his clients symptoms by focusing on the cause of discomfort. Whether by reflexology, Thai-yoga massage, no-needles acupuncture or Swedish massage therapy, he enjoys working with all these modalities singularly or in combination according to what the client asks for.
When Mark is not with clients he has his hands full with young family in tow. He loves caring for his 7 and 3 year old boys
