Born and raised in Calgary, Alberta, Michael always found himself involved in sports including boxing, football, swimming, and a variety of martial arts. It was an accident in mechanics class that opened his eyes to the many practical and rehabilitative effects massage therapy could have on one’s physical health. After having an engine fall on him, Michael saw first-hand the powerful effects that massage therapy can have on one’s healing and overall health. It was due to this life-changing experience that Michael became interested in health and wellness, anatomy and physiology. His love for learning has given him the ongoing opportunity to hone his skills and offer high-quality rehab and healing techniques.
Michael began massaging in 2007 after graduating from Foothills College of Massage Therapy. From 2007 to 2013, Michael practiced his skills in spa and chiropractic clinics. In 2013, Michael went back to school for upgrading. It was while at school the second time that he found a love for teaching. From 2013 to 2018, Michael worked his way up from a tutor to a Lead Practical Instructor at Alberta's own MaKami College. Using a combination of manual therapy and corrective exercises, Michael is back doing what he does best - helping his clients achieve a higher level of health and well-being.
