Mark Hayward | Licensed Massage Therapist

Licensed Massage Therapist and graduate with academic honors of Cortiva Institute. I am certified in Myofascial, Neuromuscular, and Swedish Technique. I like to incorporate all three modalities within my sessions. I have worked in both spa and clinical settings. My specialties are Medical and Sports Massage. I have completed extensive work with Chiropractic and Osteopathic Doctors. Working with doctors has exposed me to patients with an extremely wide range of challenges. I have always been fascinated with the nature of our bodies, and how everything is connected. My training and work experience has allowed me to discover just how amazing we truly are. I thoroughly enjoy actively listening to clients’ goals and needs, and troubleshooting their aches and pains. My style of technique combines focused intention with gentle manipulation of the soft tissues, resulting in a therapeutic change. We are all the same in many ways, yet equally different. That is why I feel it is important to design a personalized wellness plan for each and every client as well as assisting and encouraging their own active participation within the realm of health and well-being. I believe that my job as a therapist is to create a safe environment for my clients, and to connect with them on their individual levels in order to allow True Healing to occur. MA59286.

  • 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.

  • Mark was great! I have been dealing with lower back pain for two months, going through the motions of PT with little improvement. One appointment with Mark and I am already on the road to recovery, I can’t believe it.

This was my husbands first massage and they made him most comfortable and relaxed. I would highly recommend both of them. We were visiting from the Florida panhandle and if we lived in the local area would definitely frequent the Massage And Wellness Spa. Thank you so much!!!

  • 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!
