Book with Austin

Austin is a graduate of Sutherland-Chan School of Massage Therapy and holds an advanced college diploma in Fitness & Lifestyle Management from George Brown College. He is currently completing his final year of undergraduate study at Thompson Rivers University in Health Sciences. Austin is registered with the College of Massage Therapists of Ontario (CMTO) and is a Certified Personal Trainer with the Canadian Society of Exercise Physiology (CSEP). Austin also has extensive training in Strength Coaching, Therapeutic Exercise, Manual Therapy, & Functional Neuroscience Therapy.

Bridging the realms of Fitness, Massage Therapy, & Physical Rehab; Austin has integrated some of the following modalities into his practice: Proprioceptive-Deep Tendon Reflex (P-DTR Advanced), NeuroKinetic Therapy (NKT L3), Fascial Abrasion Technique, ELDOA, SomaTraining (Osteopathic Movement Therapy), Yoga, Posturology, & Corrective-Holistic Exercise Kinesiology (CHEK).
Austin’s calling to movement and manual therapy manifested from his own struggle with injuries, poor posture, and chronic pain. His passion for adventure and extreme sports (Parkour, BMX, Climbing) left him with significant physical trauma at a young age. By 18, Austin had suffered countless injuries causing him to suffer from chronic pain and debilitating posture. His frustrations with his physical limitations developed into an obsession to rehabilitate his body and help others on a similar journey. It’s been 13 years since Austin recognized this as his noble purpose and his fire is far from burning out. His humble beginnings as a personal trainer have evolved into a daily pursuit of developing a unique & integrated therapeutic approach to treat a large variety of human conditions.
When Austin isn’t in the books or the clinic, you can find him pursuing his love for performing and combative arts. His athletic endeavours include aerial circus arts (straps), fire flow arts/dancing (rope dart & staff), callisthenics, and krav maga.

Austin prides himself in being a polymath, a generalist in a healthcare system crowded with specialists. Austin is excited to have the opportunity to become a part of your self-care journey!
