I grew up in London in the United Kingdom. I have always had a keen interest in health and fitness, as well as a desire to help people in this field. I graduated in 2007 with a Bachelor of Science Honours Degree in Sports Therapy at the University of Kent at Medway. This is a recognised massage therapy program in excess of 2200 hours.
I am qualified in Sports Massage, Therapeutic Massage, Deep Tissue Massage, Trigger Point Therapy, Laser Therapy, Onsen Therapy and Relaxation Massage. I have 14 years’ experience in the industry, and I have a passion to see people perform at their optimal level.
When my wife and I immigrated to Canada I became a Registered Massage Therapist with the Canadian Massage and Manual Osteopathic Therapists Association (CMMOTA). I worked in Calgary at a busy and successful clinic specializing in pain and tissue rehabilitation. Whilst working here I trained in Laser Therapy and became certified in Onsen Therapy. This is a highly effective series of techniques that combines manual osteopathy and massage to assess and correct structural and functional deviations, to provide long term pain relief.
I have also worked at several clinics in the Bow Valley offering various massage modalities to tourists and locals alike. I find great satisfaction in tailoring my appointments to meet the needs of a variety of clients, from retirees to Olympic athletes. It is highly rewarding to assist clients in getting back to their full health so they can continue to pursue their passions.
To date I still maintain my CMMOTA registration. Since moving to beautiful Kelowna I will now be taking the B.C. board exams in 2021 so that I will be able to direct bill to extended health care benefits as I did in Alberta. Until then I will be offering massage at a discounted rate. I look forward to working with you to help you reach your health and wellness goals.
