BScPT, Dip. Manip PT, FCAMPT, Pose Instructor, FAFS, CGIMS, NGPS.
I am a firm believer, regardless of your profession, that education and learning is a lifetime task. Since I graduated from physiotherapy school from University of Toronto in 2002, I think I have done more exams after graduation compared to in school.
In 2006, after a 4 year journey, I completed my Fellowship of Canadian Academy of Manipulative Physiotherapy (FCAMPT). This journey taught me how to manipulate/adjust spinal and peripheral joints safely and effectively. In 2006, in the bitter cold of Boston, I was taught how to run by the guru of running mechanics, Dr. Nicholas Romanov. Since then, I have been teaching people of all ages how to run for over 9 years.
In 2007, I travelled to Michigan and I completed my Fellowship of Applied Functional Science (FAFS). This additional training taught me how to find the ROOT cause of an injury, and by identifying the root cause(s), we can prevent re-occurrence of the injury. My goal is return you back to health as quickly as possible, so that there is no need for you to see me again (unless to say “hi”).
At the end of 2007, I completed my certification of Gunn Intramuscular Stimulation (CGIMS). This is a form of acupuncture that works extremely well for ANY nerve pain and CHRONIC pain, like fibromyalgia.
In 2008, I became a Nike Golf 360 Golf Performance Specialist (NGPS). Though, my golf swing is in need of work, NGPS, has taught me how to assess and treat golfers to ensure they have the prerequisite mobility, strength, flexibility to do a perfect golf swing.
From 2008 to 2014, I have been learning “Functional Soft Tissue Transformation”, a form of myofascial release from world renowned lecturer, Lenny Parracino. Soft tissues are responsible for more pain, dysfunction, and disability than all other organs in the body.
I am a very active individual. I wake up every morning around 5am to workout. My clients motivate me to exercise more.
