B.A., Registered Massage Therapist
Gord graduated from Brock University in 1995 with a Bachelor of Arts in Health Studies. He entered the insurance sector and worked with a number of companies dealing with clients injured in motor vehicle accidents. After years in the insurance industry he realized that he needed to work with people to help return them to normal function and thus returned to school in 2008.
Gord is passionate about fitness, especially running. He has always had an interest in rehabilitation and injury prevention. It was back in 2004 that Gord was training for a marathon and felt as though something was impeding his performance. He had heard of an Osteopathic Manual Practitioner in his area and sought help. Through assessment and gentle movements, the practitioner was able to help Gord with his injury. Gord did not know exactly what the practitioner had done, but knew that this was the field he needed to work in.
Gord completed his studies at Canadian Therapeutic College in 2009, graduating with a Diploma in Massage Therapy with the intent of entering the Canadian College of Osteopathy in Toronto. He began his studies with the CCO that fall and continues them today. Whether it be a sports injury, whiplash or a scar from a surgery, the body has an amazing ability to heal itself, and Gord’s goal is to help return the body to its normal function.
Gord has had the opportunity to work with a number of amateur and professional athletes including weekend warriors, Ironman triathletes, the stars of the CBC show Battle of the Blades and the hit U.K. show Dancing on Ice.
