Red has a long history of being amazing. One day after saving a cardboard box full of puppies from a burning school bus, he realized how much joy he could bring the world by helping people; well to be honest he realized how good helping the people made him feel and cynically sought a career that made it possible to feel this all day, everyday.
When out adventuring (this time saving the world from The Evil Kitten’s Dander Ray) he obtained a grievous wound; the dreaded “sore-back-from-reaching-up-too-high-at-an-awkward-angle”. Seeking medical attention, he was told “Try massage”. The massage was awesome and Red found his vocation.
Red attended the McKay Massage and Hydrotherapy Program in Saskatoon, Saskatchewan, and graduated with honours in December 2000. Upon leaving school he spent a year working in a chiropractic office in Medicine Hat, Alberta. In late 2001 he returned home, to Whitehorse, and opened his own clinic space in a local fitness centre, Peak Fitness. After several years operating his own clinic he moved to British Columbia. Once in B.C. he split his time between going to school, to complete the CMTBC board exams and working in heavy industry as a apprentice Steamfitter. Upon passing the Board exams he worked at Spa Utopia in North Vancouver. Red has a deep appreciation for, and understanding of clinical massage therapy. Red incorporates the science of massage with the art of healing. His particular interest is in how massage therapy can help with depression and anxiety. He also has had extensive experience treating sports related shoulder injuries and pathologies like frozen shoulder.
When Red is not working, he enjoys mint juleps, long walks on the treadmill and Kei vans far too much. Often you can find him being duped by friends into competing in team relays like the Whistler 50 or reading comic books whilst complaining about the aforementioned trickery.
