Mark Hayward | Licensed Massage Therapist

Florida State License Massage Therapist

Certified Health Coach and Nutritional Therapist

Personal Trainer

I have been a working Massage Therapist since 2010. Carrying certifications in Myofascial Release, Neuromuscular, and Swedish therapies. I’ve been blessed with a lot of work, which continues to be most rewarding, and life changing.

Gratefully, it wasn’t only my life that changed. Assisting another person’s transformation to that of better well-being, ignites a spark in most Massage Therapist, that makes us really love our jobs! It’s what fuels us to continuously learn and expand our craft. We strive to provide our clients with a truly holistic approach to Health and Well-Being. It becomes a passion.

Most of my background consists of working in clinical settings with Chiropractors and a Doctor of Osteopathic Medicine. Although I specialize in Medical Massage, I have always maintained Spa work experience because I believe it makes for a winning combination. I often mix a variety of techniques within my sessions, in the attempt to adhere to my clients’ present wants and needs. As my sessions tend to lean heavily on Myofascial Release skills, my work is patient, focused and intentional.

Understanding the patterns of Healing, I know the importance of approaching each client as an individual. Although physiologies are very similar in many ways, no two are exactly alike. Therefore, all of my sessions are customized. This is especially true with my Strength and Conditioning instruction class. The program is called Foundational Fitness, and is rooted in the development of postural integrity and mind-body connection.

As a Health Coach and Nutritional Therapist, I offer guidance to bridge the gap between any of the “latest health crazes”, and my clients personal needs so they can make safe and healthy choices. I also offer assistance with creating a lifestyle of Well-Being.

Qi-gong and Meditation have been central to my practice for nearly two decades and I’m pleased to offer private instruction in these immensely profound healing works. The forms passed on are of authentic Chinese lineage and are designed to introduce a person to the basics of qi-gong, restoring fluidity to the neck, waist and back areas (who doesn’t need that?).

“Massage is a team sport” I often say. Facilitating a connection with my clients and a Healing experience, should be at the heart of every session. It is my #1 priority. Hope to connect with you soon.

  • Mark is one of the best massage therapists I have ever worked with in over 20+ years of getting massages. He is very kind hearted and very receptive to what I need done. He also truly cares about his clients. After his massage I always feel so much better. I would recommend him in a heart beat.

  • Mark Hayward is a knowledgeable and experienced massage therapist. I recently moved to the area, and I was experiencing a lot of pain from a previous accident. I had already been to a massage therapist in the area, and it was a bad experience. Thus, I was cautious about booking a massage with Mark. However, when I met Mark my mind was put at ease. The thing that impressed me the most about my first visit was the time Mark took to hear about my condition and examine me before beginning the massage. He also had the experience to adjust the type of massage he performed according to how my body responded. The time he takes each session to hear my concerns and work toward healing is something I am confident he exhibits with all his patients. I would highly recommend him to anyone who needs a massage. His knowledge and experience is evident and far above average. Thank you Mark!

  • This was my second session at Massage and Wellness Spa. The masseuse (Mark Hayward) and I do highly recommend him but he was unavailable. My second visit was with Robert. He recommended the "World Fusion" package for my symptoms and his suggestion was just what I needed. I will absolutely be returning.

One appointment with Mark and I am already on the road to recovery, I can’t believe it.

  • I have been a client of Mark’s for 3 years now. He is by far the BEST massage therapist I have ever had. I spend the winters here in Florida and have a weekly appointment set up with Mark. I come down at least once a month during the rest of the year and always set up appointments before I get here. He is attentive to whatever problems I may be having and always manages to work through them….magic hands! Thorough, professional, caring and a great personality. I highly recommend Mark!

They offer many specials. My therapist is Mark. I have been getting massages for many, many years and he is the best I have had. He has the ability to find what the body needs and adjusts the therapy to meet those needs perfectly. Any issues my body is having are always relieved. Thank you Mark and Massage & Wellness.
    Barbara G.
  • I have been seeing Mark Hayward for a year now, and it is amazing to feel the difference in my body!! When I first began to get massages from him, he worked specifically on several problem areas I had. However, yesterday, he was able to do a full-body massage, because my problem areas are now doing so much better--I told him that my body automatically begins relaxing as soon as I enter the building! I plan to continue to see Mark on a regular basis, and I would highly recommend him to others!
    Christina W.
  • Really enjoyed the massage, Mark was sensitive to pressure and target areas. Highly recommend.
    Joan D.
  • Shout out to Mark! I tried a massage for the for the time yesterday with him, for chronic upper back pain that I've been dealing with for about 15 years now. After the first session, I feel a lot less pain and have hope that the pain I've been experiencing for so long is in the past. This office is professional, clean, relaxing, and they truly are there to help you.
  • Mark was detailed, explained, and answered all of my questions very thoroughly. He even took the time and showed me stretch exercises to help me. He really cares about his patients.

  • Amazing massage! I have been working with Mark after many months of trying to resolve a sports injury/pain that would not resolve with physical therapy. He is so knowledgeable and his expertise is vast. I will continue to work with him as he not only helped to resolve the problem but would advise of specific things I could do to ensure that the issue to stay in check. Thanks!

    Susan R.
  • Mark is a true healer. Working with him has helped me heal pain and imbalance I've had in my hips and left leg. I always feel energized after my session!
  • I have a problem with my knee mark really worked on my knee and when I was done with my massage my knee felt much better he told me to ice my knee when I got home it really helped . I would will see mark again in 2 weeks.
  • I have been getting routine massage sessions with Mark for a year now. Most of the time it is for maintenance, but when “life happens”, which it does to everyone, I increase my sessions, so Mark can bring me back to earth or alleviate a pain in my body, which he always accomplishes. For about the last three months a new hindrance has entered my life. My brain won’t shut off to allow me go to sleep or when it does, I wake up at 2AM and cannot get back to sleep. My brain goes into full work/life mode and I cannot shut it off. I mentioned this to Mark and he gave me a few breathing exercises and a sample of Qigong & Meditation. I experienced positive results and decided to get a package to learn more. I am still learning, but thanks to Mark, I am able to shut off my brain, fall asleep AND sleep all night! With the massages and Qigong & Meditation sessions, my body and my mind are in a really good place. I highly recommend Mark for any of his services. He is exceptionally knowledgeable and very intuitive on what your body needs. He is professional, compassionate, attentive and in my mind a true healer. Thank you Mark! You ROCK and I greatly appreciate you and your abilities!
  • Had a perfect massage by Mark over the holidays! He's very strong and professional! Also he's nice and tall so he can stretch you from both ends at the same time - like a pleasant version of the rack - lol!!! Thanks again for a great experience.
  • This is my first experience with massage therapy. I had a total of 4 deep tissuse massages done by Mark and they have helped with the back and hip problems I have been having. Would not hesitate to recommend him to anyone. Very professional Pat
