Adam Bell is a graduate of Dalhousie University and Sutherland Chan School of Massage. Previously, he has worked as both a personal trainer and as a strength and conditioning coach for the last 6 years. He has extensive experience working with a diverse population including everything from those new to exercise, up to and including, professional athletes working with hockey players. Adam’s treatments include a personalized assessment and movement screen to ensure the best possible outcomes for his patients. He is a believer that movement is the foundation of physical and mental well-being. His philosophy is that movement can give us a sense of appreciation for the human body and all the possibilities that come with it, particularly in pain prevention. Beyond massage and exercise, Adam has a strong passion for nutrition as well as meditation and their role in optimizing total health.
Why should patients choose you as their provider instead of others in the area?
I have a lot experience working with athletes and a background in strength and conditioning, so my treatment approach is manual therapy combined with movement. I have found that coupling the two produces the best outcomes.
What are the top 3 treatments that you focus on?
-Post Surgical scar work (previously worked with recovering breast cancer survivors (lumpectomy, mastectomy)) - Athletic Prehab and Rehab - Shoulder Injuries in conjunction with advanced exercise progression
What are you proud of in your practice?
In my practice I am most proud of the relationships I have been fortunate enough to build. I really value the trust that patients grant me and the opportunity I have to help them improve their quality of life.
Which cases do you enjoy treating? Why?
I have no one specific case or cases I enjoy treating the most. Each case may be challenging in its own way. I get the most enjoyment out of trying to the best solution/treatment for each individual.
