Mark Houghtaling, LMT

I am a somatic coach and integrative bodyworker practicing in the Catskills, Mid-Hudson Valley, and globally through virtual sessions. I have a deep passion to guide individuals toward well-being and self-realization, through self-inquiry, radical presence, empathy, and somatic insights.

My path to somatic coaching was inspired by a relentless curiosity about the human experience and the potential for personal growth through somatic awareness. I trained at the Embody Lab with influential leaders such as Richard Strozzi-Heckler, Staci K. Haines, Dr. Rae Johnson, Kai Cheng Thom, and Licia Sky, earning certification as a mind-body coach.

With over two decades of experience in corporate and nonprofit leadership roles, I've had the privilege of coaching and mentoring leaders and other professionals in strategic planning, creative ideation, collaboration, conflict resolution, and more.
In addition to my work as coach and mentor, I am a licensed massage therapist specializing in integrative bodywork, a distinctive method of manual therapy that combines traditional Swedish techniques with eastern bodywork and energy balancing.

Integral to my work has been my own journey of personal inquiry and self-development through various modalities including CBT, IFS, massage and energy work, EMDR, meditation, plant medicine, and somatic coaching.
Beyond my professional life, I find creative expression as a songwriter and musician, and experience awe and solace in nature–whether scaling the Catskills high peaks or tending to my backyard garden. My spiritual journey is an enduring pursuit.

My home is in Accord, NY (and sometimes in New York City), where I share life with my husband Neil and a loving community of friends and colleagues.
