“It seems to be the story of my life; right place at the right time” - Shawn Markwick, RMT
Shawn Markwick is in his 25th year as a Registered Massage Therapist and this year it will be his 14th season with the NHL as the Ottawa Senators' massage therapist.
He taught massage therapy for 7 years and was one of my massage therapy instructors. He loves to teach and share his knowledge, encouraging collaboration between all healthcare professions. He is an excellent mentor in the profession.
He worked with Team Canada for the World Championships 2014 in Belarus and also works with Cirque Du Soleil when they are in town (and when his schedule permits).
He is a passionate RMT dedicated to helping each and every one of his clients to feel better, which can often lead to a 10 hour massage day. His schedule is full during hockey season which can have him working 80 hour weeks between touring and seeing massage clients at two separate clinics. When he is not traveling or working, he is helping out at home with his wife Angela and his 3 children Lindsay, Emma, and Ben.
"Right place at the right time" may be how Shawn feels he has come into some incredible career opportunities but, in this episode you will also learn that he is one of the hardest working RMTs who has truly earned them. I hope you enjoy!
