Deep Roots Massage & Bodywork Staff

Deep Roots therapists are licensed professionals who practice study and train together in the science and art of massage therapy. No matter who you choose to work with, you can trust that your therapist is capable of delivering a wide range of pressure, depth and techniques specific to your need.

The most important aspect of great massage is communication. A Deep Roots therapist will always ask about your goals and expectations before your massage, pay close attention to your requests and check in with you regularly to ensure the work is appropriate for your body.

Mark Rebillard, LMT

Mark is the founder of Deep Roots Massage & Bodywork. "Long before I started my career as an LMT, I got a wonderful massage from a friend who was about to graduate with honors from a great program. I remember feeling relaxed, two inches taller! and the pain that I'd been carrying around for weeks was gone. Years later, I recognize that my result was extraordinary because my therapist was an avid scholar, a talented professional and a trusted friend. It's that same experience that we're working to provide for every client of Deep Roots Massage."

Mark is honored to have played a part in helping people relieve headaches, sciatic nerve pain, and muscle pain associated with TMJ, osteoarthritis, ITB syndrome, wrist pain and many other conditions. Mark was voted #1 for Massage Therapy from 2011 through 2016 in the Monadnock Shopper News Readers poll.
