Geoff is a native Calgarian who graduated from the Mount Royal University Massage Therapy Program in 2005. Geoff first expressed an interest in Massage Therapy during his sports medicine courses in high school which was a natural transition as he endured many sports related injuries while playing hockey and soccer in his younger years.
Since graduating Geoff has spent time improving his massage and stretching techniques in the treatment and rehabilitation of chronic soft tissue injuries. He specializes in deep tissue massage, repetitive strain injuries, motor vehicle accidents, migraine/headache relief, chronic pain relief and TMJ.
Geoff also educates his patients in the prevention of their injuries and offers treatments to further enhance their recovery with a combination of various ice, heating and stretching techniques.
Geoff looks forward to working with the staff at Back to Motion and welcoming any new and old clients to his new location.
