RMT, Registered Massage Therapist
Neurofunctional Practitioner -Junior
Why I am here:
During the process of becoming a clinical therapist I have been privileged to learn from some highly regarded, and highly educated therapists that range in variety of the different fields of clinical therapy. What I have learned from my studies, is that regardless of the titles you carry- to be successful in your clinical practice, is that you must have a professional and personal commitment that requires a plethora of traits. These traits range from: clarity, depth, attention to detail and focus, as well as purposeful action. This is where we aim to incorporate the client’s unique needs to optimize performances to which one is discomfort free.
I have joined the Instil Physio team because I truly believe that the intentions from the team members here are meaningful and that they have a strong desire to better themselves to change their clients lives in a positive way.
A little about me:
I obtained my advanced diploma in massage therapy (RMT) in 2017 at Mohawk College in Hamilton, ONT. After graduating school I attended various institutions to better learn how to apply my unique approach of practicing the neuro-functional approach such as Neuro-Kinetic therapy, Rocktape, and contemporary medical acupuncture at McMaster University.
I grew up as a dairy farmer located on the outskirts of London, Ontario, where I was a member of a variety of sports teams. These teams range from track & field, to soccer, and even ice hockey. After high-school I put all of my athletic focus on running where I was able to compete at the collegiate level, and achieve great success in the form of: 3x First-Team All-Ontario, 1x First-Team All-Canadian, and a National Silver Team Medal.
On top of which I have also spent a year volunteering my extra time traveling with the Varsity Cross-Country teams at Fanshawe College as the teams Head Athletic Trainer, where I have treated a variety of athletes and their sport-related/specific injuries.
Some of my special interests and future ambitions:
· I am very interested in treating clients with chronic pain, and the unique build up to how the pain has been created to a chronic state.
· I personally believe that the Neuro-Functional approach is not as known when compared to the other (traditional) approaches. I find myself volunteering more and more in the community and surrounding areas to help educate the public of this approach and how it can drastically help better improve everyone’s wellbeing.
· Due to my passion and knowledge of athletics I want to pursue helping runners/triathletes at any level to achieve their full potential of performance and comfort during activity.
· As I am young in my career I feel I have a lot of potential to continue learning and increasing my scope of knowledge to a deep depth of the human body to become a very special unique manual therapist.
