Biography

The human body never ceases to amaze me. I chose to follow this path as a Registered Massage Therapist after my wife and I were hit by a drunk driver in 1995. Massage Therapy helped to guide us back to wellness. And that is what I have considered myself since. A guide. I have been privileged to be able to work with individuals who are undergoing health challenges. Initially after graduation myself and a couple of colleagues opened up a clinic with an M.D. and a Chiropractor, and we treated mainly individuals who were injured in car accidents. So mainly whiplash injuries. In my time there, I really felt a disconnect with the rest of the body, so I slowly transitioned to a wellness spa. There, I learned to treat the entire person, and not just the injury, and that is what sums up my practice. In 2004 I wanted to impart my knowledge and experience gained with new therapists, so I became a teacher, and absolutely loved it. I had been a teacher with Vancouver College Of Massage Therapy since 2006. I taught Orthopedics, Manual Skills, Clinical Assessment, Sports Treatments, as well a clinical supervisor. I find that my treatments reflect the subjects I taught. I am certified as a Graston Technique Provider as well as a Rock Doc, have taken many Myofascial Release Courses (even had the honor of attending the first ever Fascial Congress at Harvard Medical in Boston), Neuromuscular Therapy, Osteopathic techniques with a strong basis for calming and soothing our nervous system. When not practicing, or teaching, I can be found on the Drive with my wife and three children riding our bikes, playing at the park or swimming. Any free time I have after that is devoted to music. I am a bassist in the Beatles Tribute – The Fab Fourever, and you can find us playing at a theatre near you at www.fabfourever.com. My belief is that our nervous system is the key to massage therapy, and if you know how to calm it, bypass it, or fly under its radar, you have an excellent opportunity for change. I look forward to being your guide for change. I am very proud of this group of tremendous individuals we have assembled here on our team at Tonume Integrated Health, and I look forward to working with all my past and future patients at our clinic.
