Where I've Been, Where I'm Going, & What I'm Doing

I am a Registered Massage Therapist (RMT) with advanced training in Myofascial Release (MFR). My first year of school was completed at the McKay Massage and Hydrotherapy Program in Saskatoon in 2005.  My wife, Leanne, and I then relocated to Strathmore, Alberta that year due to a teaching position she had accepted at a local elementary school. I then found myself transferring to the Foothills College of Massage and Hydrotherapy in Calgary and graduated from their 2,200 hour program. 

My education covered many subjects including but not limited to:

Swedish Massage Hydrotherapy
Trigger Point Therapy Remedial Exercises
Cyriax Frictions Treatment Postural Balancing Exercises
Lymphatic Drainage Techniques Biomechanics   
Ergonomics Post-Isometic Relaxation Techniques


I have been practicing as a Registered Massage Therapist since 2006 and am located at Centerpoint Chiropractic & Natural Health in Strathmore, Alberta.

Centerpoint Chiropractic & Natural Health is owned by Dr. Derek Pyper. It is a clinic where he and other like-minded independent health practitioners conduct their practices in a cooperative manner, working together to bring about positive changes to our clients health.

In 2007, I began my studies in an advanced form of therapy called Myofascial Release (MFR) through the John F. Barnes, PT, Myofascial Release Treatment Centers and Seminars. My goal is to achieve the highest level of training available in this type of therapy and to incorporate this knowledge, as I acquire it, to form a more comprehensive and effective treatment for my clients. Thus far I have completed the following courses:  

Myofascial Release I  Myofascial Unwinding  
  Myofascial Release II  Myofascial Mobilization

On a personal note, my wife and I have been married since 2001 and have a family of three. Our daughter, Eowyn, our son Caelan, and our Chocolate Labrador, Skye, keep us very busy. My wife and I enjoy ballroom dancing, my kids love to camp in the summer, and the little free time I do have is split between scrambling, cycling, reading, and catching the odd Montreal Canadiens hockey game. I love my family, I love my work, and I love this beautiful earth we live on. See you soon and thanks for visiting my website!
