What I do around here:

I encourage and promote overall wellness and positivity through the body with the power of touch. I use a combination of Swedish massage techniques, stretching and breathing exercises to help release tension through the body. I support my clients through their treatments and remedial exercises so they can lead a pain-free lifestyle.

I became a Massage Therapist because:

Being a competitive athlete my entire life, I understand the importance of taking care of your body. I wanted a career where I could combine my love of sport with my passion and knowledge of the body, and Massage Therapy was a great fit. I love that every treatment is different and I’m able to help my clients get well.

My personal philosophy is:

Approach everything with positivity, an open heart and an open mind. Remember to take deep breaths, love wholeheartedly, and laugh as much as possible.

What I do for fun:

I’m always up for an adventure! I love being outside- playing sports, going for a run or hiking with my dog. Anything that involves my friends or family, you can find me there.

What I do around here:

I prescribe, progress, and regress exercise programs as well as teach correct movement techniques to help others recover, stay mobile, and injury free. I also apply treatment modalities such as thermotherapy, cryotherapy, TENS, STIM, IFC, ultrasound, and taping.

I became an Exercise Specialist because:

I am passionate about interacting and learning from others, and love being able to see people reach their full potential and live with good quality of life through exercise and physical activity!

My personal philosophy is:

Get to know the person, not just the patient.

What I do for fun:

I enjoy activities that allow me to spend time with my wife and two daughters.  Riding on the bike trails of Ottawa, playing golf, hockey and soccer are just a few of the things that keep me active.  As well, spending a few days at the gym working on strength and aerobic conditioning allow me to stay fit and keep pace with my active children.  With very little down time, I occasionally like to spend a quiet night at home watching a movie or playing the Wii.
