Brian graduated from Alexandrian Institute’s Massage Therapy program in Hamilton with Honours in 1999 and has practiced massage therapy in Niagara ever since. He has a broad range of experience treating soft tissue pain and dysfunction. His post-graduate education includes Ergonomic Evaluation, Myofascial Release, British Sports Therapy Soft Tissue Release, Ultrasound Therapy Certification, Interferential Current Therapy Certification, and Level 2 Systemic Interactive Medicine.
His special training lies in the area of Soft Tissue Release, an advanced therapy originally used for treating sports injuries, but which is now used to treat many types of soft tissue injuries and pain. Brian has also focused on repetitive strain injury treatment and Ergonomics (the study of workplace set-up). This makes him well qualified to get you back in the game or back to work as soon as possible.
Lifetime learning is a passion for Brian. As well as a Massage Therapist, he is also a health educator, having conducted seminars and various aspects of wellness to professional and corporate groups. Writing is another passion that he has pursued. For over ten years he was the staff heath columnist at the Dalhousie Peer Magazine. During that time he had over a hundred articles published on a wide array of topics including soft tissue pain, injury, rehabilitation, exercise, stretching and a variety of holistic health topics. Many of these articles are available on this site. Brian has also published a book on the topic of manual therapy for other health practitioners.
Brian is also passionate about advancing the Massage Therapy profession. His past experience includes serving on the Board of Directors of the Ontario Massage Therapists Association. He continues to serve the OMTA as a member, supporting its efforts to advance and elevate the profession of Massage Therapy.
