About Marty

Marty Machacek is a born healer and gifted spiritual guide. His grounded presence and gentle, heart-filled energy can be sensed by everyone he encounters.

Marty began his healing journey 25 years ago, studying and practicing reiki, sports massage, and Siddha meditation primarily for personal well-being.


In 2001, while hiking in his home country of Czech Republic, he was bitten by a tick and contracted Lyme’s Disease—an auto-immune condition that is often called ‘The Great Imitator’, because its symptoms mimic those of other health issues like arthritis, fibromyalgia, chronic fatigue, and even syphilis.

Although Marty was treated promptly and effectively at the time with antibiotics, his strain of Lyme’s proved to be resistant and chronic.

He began exploring and learning many other alternative healing modalities, including shamanism, aromatherapy, dietary changes, yoga, and eventually Bio-Touch and Thai Massage.


He benefited enormously from a holistic approach to his own healing, although he still chose to share his growing wealth of intuitive healing practices only with a circle of close family and friends.

Hands-on healing was placed on the back burner for more than a decade, at least in the professional and public sense. For the past 15 years, Marty healed others in a much different sense, pouring his creative energy and inspiration into a thriving art business, Martycultural Art. As a visionary painter and talented renderer, Marty channeled divine energy and uplifting vibrations into a distinctive style of art, which was warmly received by thousands and brought smiles to faces around the world.

Marty truly believed that he was living his true soul purpose by creating artwork. However, several years ago, his body began exhibiting symptoms of dis-ease once again, signalling him to move in a different direction. Recently, he honoured the call of his body and soul, committing to resurrect his healing practices and to offer them more widely now for the benefit of all.

Marty’s healing treatments and energy work blend several distinct modalities into a unique therapeutic experience.

He intuitively combines elements of massage, reiki, Bio-Touch, and even shamanism into his sessions, customizing the treatments for every client he works with.


His work is experienced as deeply relaxing, gentle, and beautifully life-affirming for everyone.
