“I love my work.”
I feel very lucky to be doing what I do. Every working day, I see both simple and challenging cases walk through my clinic door. Whether someone wants to quit smoking, is stressed from day-to-day life, wants help with a drug addiction, or is in pain – I am amazed to see the results that often transpire using laser in my practice.
All The Way From Southern Ontario To The Ottawa Area!
Having lived most of my life in the Kitchener-Waterloo area, my family and I are quite excited to now call the Kanata area home. The decision to move in the spring of 2019 was an easy one given the natural beauty, healthy economic base and family connection this area affords us. I’m very proud to offer my unique and specialized laser therapy expertise to the people of Kanata and local Ottawa area.
My Treatment Style
My treatment style has evolved over the years since graduating in Honours from the Canadian College of Massage and Hydrotherapy. Given my martial arts background, I was naturally drawn early in my massage career to the ancient and hands on art of acupressure. As a result, shortly after earning my massage license I decided to go to Thailand to learn traditional Thai Massage. Upon returning home, I sought a more contemporary and modern approach to acutherapy so enlisted myself and successfully completed the McMaster University Medical Acupuncture Training Program.
Thereafter, I moved on to begin my journey on learning about laser therapy. My initial experience with laser therapy was as a patient! Having run a very busy and traditional massage practice for awhile I found my arms in pain despite my best efforts to treat myself and pursuing more traditional therapy with peers. Eventually I found a local practitioner who employed laser therapy in their practice and was simply amazed at how fast and curative the results were using this modern approach to healing!
Right then and there I made a commitment to learning more about laser and also to incorporate it into my massage practice so I could share these results with my own patients.
After extensive research (over a year) of the laser therapy equipment market place and testing different models, I set my sites on investing into a laser device designed and produced by a European company. After all, I discovered the Europeans more or less discovered the healing qualities of laser and had been researching and producing this technology the longest. Eventually I came across RJ Lasers from Germany. Right from initial contact with this company, I was impressed with their products, expertise, service and most of all their patience with all my questions. Shortly thereafter I invested into my first RJ Laser device.
The healing results I procured with my patients were simply amazing right from the beginning. Laser not only transformed many of my patient’s expectations for healing and recovery from pain and addiction but it has also transformed my practice and enjoyment of what I do for a living. I am very thankful and grateful I discovered this healing technology early on in my massage and addiction practice, as I have had the time to thoroughly become an expert with it.
I am very impressed with the powerful healing effect of laser light, it can be used for so many conditions. We are truly at the cusp of a revolution in healing, as never before has the public had such a consistently effective alternative to symptom-chasing pharmaceutical medications. I am excited to offer my patients a safe and unique form of laser light therapy, as my training and experience with laser is built on a strong foundation of professional knowledge in medical acupuncture and massage therapy.
When I’m not working, I spend most of my spare time with my family. My other interests include white water kayaking, canoeing, working out, reading, photography, learning more about laser/trying new approaches and just taking it easy.
To your health!
