Grant Martens, RTT

I am the owner and founder of Sirius Health, and I am certified as a Registered Instructor and an Advanced Registered Thai Therapist by the Thai Healing Alliance International (THAI). I am also licensed by the Natural Health Practitioners of Canada (NHPC) as a Thai Massage Practitioner.

I received my first Thai massage in 2016 at the Gellert Bath and Spa in Budapest while travelling across Europe with my family and was utterly amazed by the experience. I then travelled to Thailand and trained at the Thai Massage School of Thailand (TMC) in Chiang Mai in 2018. During this time, I also had private sessions with Mr. Nat at the Supattra Blind Massage Clinic.

I returned to Chiang Mai in 2021 and completed my CAPT at the International Training Massage School (ITM). During this visit, I also took numerous short courses at Ong’s Thai Massage School.

In 2009, I made the significant decision to establish roots in Canada. My journey began in Thailand, where I was a dedicated Physical Education teacher, imparting knowledge on fitness and well-being. Beyond the confines of the classroom, I cultivated a profound passion for the artistry of Thai massage.

Upon arriving in Canada, I seized the opportunity to continue practicing this ancient healing art and deepen my understanding through dedicated learning experiences, embracing the rich cultural exchange this new chapter of life offered me.

I have completed Levels 1 and 2 of the Professional Thai Massage Certification program at Sirius Health Thai Massage School. I currently work at Superior Cabinets in addition to Sirius Health. I hope to complete my Thai Massage Practitioner training at Sirius Health in 2024.

Our History

Owners of Sirius Health

In 2001, Angela and Grant Martens decided to diversify from their farming operation and started their first company, El Gaucho Web Site Conceptions, in November 2001. The company’s initial focus was developing and hosting websites for small businesses in West Central Saskatchewan.

By June 2013, the focus of El Gaucho had shifted to helping small businesses migrate from desktop applications to cloud-based applications. So Angela and Grant officially removed “web site” from their company name and rebranded their company as El Gaucho Conceptions.

In July 2016, Grant had his first Thai massage in Budapest, Hungary. He was almost 50 years old, was dealing with chronic pain in his upper back from sitting at a computer daily, and had no success with regular RMT treatments. He felt so good after one massage that Grant could not stop thinking about his health after returning home. Grant began to research Thai massage and, over the next year, developed a new business plan for a Thai massage clinic.

Starting a new company is a huge investment in time, money and energy. El Gaucho took about four years to get on its feet and start generating decent income. By 2017, Angela and Grant had stable contracts and generated a good income. So abandoning this completely and jumping into another completely different venture was a huge decision. Angela gave her support for this crazy change in direction, and so they began anew.

In December 2017, Grant quit all IT contracts and flew to Thailand for Thai massage training. And in March 2018, El Gaucho Conceptions made the biggest change ever. El Gaucho became Sirius Health. In June 2018, Angela and Grant opened their clinic and have never looked back. The greatest wealth truly is health.
