Mark trained as a neuromuscular therapist with the National Training College after retiring from the London Fire Brigade, where he served as a firefighter for 30 years. He also has qualifications in taping and strapping, dry needling, and nutrition & health, and is therefore able to provide a very comprehensive physical therapy service for his patients. Most recently he has undertaken additional training in strength and conditioning at Setanta College, in order to be able to advise patients about appropriate exercise for maintining musculoskeletal health. Mark is a member of the Association of Neuromuscular Physical Therapists (ANMPT) and the Association of Registered Complementary Health Therapists of Ireland (ARCHTI).
Mark has worked both in Ireland and in London, and has provided post event massage at events such as the London Marathon and the Sean Kelly Tour. He is an accomplished runner, competing regularly in the Dublin Marathon and in 50 mile and 100 mile marathons in the UK, as well as in local events. Mark is also an active member of the Lismore Community First Response programme, and a co-founder of the COVID19 Community asistance group, which provides assistance to vulnerable members of the community.
