I’m a fortunate guy in that I’m happy with my life, my wife and family, and my work. I try my best to spread that positivity and find massage therapy is a great outlet. Throughout my career, starting with graduation of the 3000hr RMT program in 2003 at WCCMT Victoria, I have gained valuable experience and insight working in both clinics as well as luxury spas. My clients will find me well rounded with a handy skillset. I love working with expecting moms and can accommodate both side-lying massage and face down using pregnancy pillows (depending on the grandness of your baby bump). I am also happy to work with athletes, the unfortunately injured, relaxation seekers, and those that are just generally wound tight from the rigours of work and life and in need of a thorough working over.
My style of massage varies with the therapeutic goals of my clients. I generally incorporate a variety of deep tissue, Swedish, range of motion, stretching, and fascial techniques (such as the CoAT method). To coax stress and tension from the body I will blend these into a strong, yet relaxing flow for a good full body overhaul. For more injury based treatments we will utilize whichever combination of techniques is appropriate. All treatments will be tailored to my client’s needs with a focus on educating and empowering them with exercises and home care to allow them to take better charge of their own health and wellness. As a bonus, my clients will also find me a great listener and conversationalist with a sense of humour, but also aware of the value of silence when they just want to zone out and relax. I see massage as a valuable tool for allowing one to get back in touch with their body and enter that blissfully healing state between sleep and consciousness - did you know you can actually snore face down while still being partially awake?? Indeed it is true…
