After many years spent dealing with my own chronic pain and health concerns, I can really truly appreciate the anguish experienced by many that are dealing with debilitating health issues.
My training and professional skills in the alternative health field have helped me immensely with improving my overall health and well-being. I believe the most important contribution I can make to humanity is sharing the lessons I have learned to assist those interested in preventative health-care and those facing health challenges.
I strive to empower my clients to discover that “health is freedom” and a proactive and preventative approach makes sense in regards to overall health: physically, mentally, emotionally and spiritually.
My sessions are all geared towards structural & energetic alignment, detoxifying the body, decreasing pain,encouraging wellness, anti-aging, personal health and balance on all levels of human existence.
In the alternative health business since 1995, I continuously upgrade my knowledge and skills of unconventional and unique therapies to be at the forefront of some of the most effective healing therapies and technologies in the Holistic Health field.
I have over 20 years of experience along with a keen intuitive sense in perfecting techniques based on my clients individual requirements.
I am dedicated to provide my clients with an effective well-planned therapy plan and by understanding their current level of health assists me to determine specific lifestyle and wellness needs with the ultimate goal to maintain and dramatically improve overall health and well-being. Note that I do not diagnose, treat or prescribe for any human disease, pain, injury or disability or physical condition.
All of the services I offer are safe, effective and help to resolve and prevent a myriad of acute and chronic degenerative conditions. I offer a safe, encouraging and empathetic environment to support my clients’ journey towards personal growth, deep fulfillment and total well-being.
My responsibility to you as a holistic health professional is to assist, facilitate and coach you along your path to good health & well-being……for me, it is an honour!
My mother always told me that I had great hands for healing as I helped her overcome recurring migraine headaches. She would say "Andy you should be a massage therapist not a long haul trucker roaming across the continent with no chance of finding a wife and/or grandchildren". That seed of thought that I might have healing hands never left my mind but didn't come to fruition until many years later. In 2006 I lost my mother and my brother within 6 weeks of each other at which point I had an epiphany about my own health and where I was headed. After misusing my body with 16 years of trucking, a near death experience with a moose, and over 20 years as a Key Grip in the film business, time had come to make a conscious choice to change my life path…..using these "great hands" to help others.
In 2008, I became a Certified Bowen Health Therapist through Bowen College and in 2015 I also became a Manual Osteopath (DOMP) through the National Academy of Osteopathy and have been a practicing practitioner since then with many successes with helping clients dealing with pain.
Other certifications and/or training:
* Smart Bowen
* Dorn Method
* Neurostructural Integration Technique
* Cranial Sacral Therapy
* Brandon Raynor Naturopathic Massage
* Energy Healing Therapies: Healing Touch, Reiki, Matrix Energetics, Reconnective Healing
* Thai Massage
Using the underpinning principles of my training, I use well rounded holistic non-invasive treatment protocols and approaches that may include various hands-on techniques, energy healing, electrotherapeutic modalities, exercise/stretch prescription and nutritional/lifestyle advice.
I have treated a wide range of people who all present with a variety of aches, pains and strains. For this reason I tailor each treatment to the individual client to ensure you are comfortable with the process.
Most recently I have rekindled my love and passion for music by diving deep in to the world of frequencies and vibration by retrofitting my treatment room into a sound-bath-like experience using in-table transducers and 7 speakers to accommodate a unique, one of a kind modality, I call Facilitated Body Drumming that my clients are raving about. With Body Drumming, the client is the instrument and the practitioner artist using various percussive hand techniques drums along the clients body to the beat of the music. As a former semi-professional drummer....I've got the hearing loss to prove it....I developed a fun modality that exhilarates, soothes, helps clear emotional blocks and might just leave you feeling a sense of joy and happiness! The music is never too loud or too soft, it's just everywhere!
Clients can also experience the sound table during other hands-on sessions with me and also as a stand-alone therapy using universal healing frequencies.
Hands-on therapies I offer are Osteopathic Massage, Bowen Therapy, Shiatsu Massage, Craniosacral Therapy, Body Drumming Sound Experience, Intuitive Energy Healing, Foot Reflexology, Head Hand Reflex Massage.
Be it by physical, energetic or vibrational healing, my mission is to be of help and service to as many people in pain and distress….most importantly the goal is to get you moving again!
