He is a Structural Bodyworker with an extensive background in Holistic Nursing, Personal Training, Massage, Rolfing, Kinesiology, Resistance Stretching, Diagnostic Sonography and is a former USN Special Operations fitness coordinator with many military rehabilitation and fitness tips and tricks to offer his clients.

Chris has always had a love for and been involved in sports and conditioning. As a child he excelled at running and wrestling which continued to be a strength right through high school and his years of military service. 

As an athlete himself Chris is acutely aware of the challenges that athletes and indeed all performers face with the repetitive nature of their work. His own need to seek treatment for various injuries while on active duty led him to become interested in the physical health of athletes and those in very active careers like military, law enforcement, etc. It quickly became apparent that when he was feeling physically at his best then he was able to practice and perform at his best. Now as a qualified health practitioner he has been able to combine his love of sports and his passion for health and well being. 

Chris uses a combination of soft tissue therapy, trigger point, stretching, active release techniques, joint mobilizations and exercise prescription in his treatments. His goal is to not only treat your symptoms but correct the underlying cause of your condition. 


What does a Structural Bodyworker do?

A Structural Bodyworker, in conjunction to a physical therapist, is a health professional who focuses on soft tissue alignment to alleviate body pain caused by postural imbalance, injuries or congested areas. Bad posture, weak or restricted muscles and Distortions or disorganization in the soft tissue can result in many types of pain and symptoms.

The use of mechanical force and movements (bio-mechanics) promote mobility, in otherwise impaired or painful movements.  Learn More
