What Will You Do To Reach Your Peak?

If you are happy with the results you are currently getting with your other therapists (chiro, physio, massage), that's great. Stay with what works! Otherwise, I can help you to reach your Peak in Health, Performance, and Recovery.

First, I am a Registered Massage Therapist (RMT). My treatments qualify for massage insurance. I am also Canada's first Master Myoskeletal Therapist (MMT), the only one in Alberta, and I have Extended the Myoskeletal Alignment Therapy (MAT) with additional techniques that follow the MAT principles. Although I perform all the standard types of massage offered according to the spa's menu, I SPECIALIZE in in treating CLINICAL ISSUES using MAT(E)™ techniques and principles with a mat based, clothes on treatment, to provide very effective outcomes for Chronic  Pain, Injury Rehab, Stress, Mobility, Posture, Work/Sport Performance Issues, Specific Conditions, and more. The treatments are characterized by Slow, Deliberate, Gentle, and Pain-Free techniques. Where traditional massage is mostly push, my MAT(E) treatments are a more balanced combination of Push, Pull, Compress, and Passive Movement.

MAT(E)™ is a SAFE and GENTLE Complement or Alternative to Chiro, Physio, and Traditional Massage.

I have more training in a short time than most massage therapists get in their entire career. This allows me to pick the best techniques and customize treatments for each patient. “When all you have is a hammer, everything tends to look like a nail.” My toolbox continues to grow – If I am not training, I am reviewing. Note: I only do Evidence Based Treatments, and Nothing Invasive! I use a holistic approach (Whole Person, not WooWoo). I also have an extensive network of experts and researchers that I can call upon, if your needs require it.

I am often the one called on to treat the owners, managers, and staff, as well as their families and friends. I treat massage and physical therapists, nurses, athletes, and more. (I have Therapists who bring me their family members and BFFs for treatment - though they won't permit me to use their names for obvious reasons!).

What My Patients are Saying:

My daughter Maelle has been diagnosed with scoliosis since she was 13 years old. This is a (supposedly) genetic disease that affects the spine. Muscles twist and curve the spine making it difficult to stand straight and in severe cases like my daughter's, people have recurring back pains and difficulty breathing at times.

She followed the standard healthcare procedure of using a cast but this did not help.

She followed a new procedure of exercising the "blocks" of the body to strengthen her back but it did not help either.

She tried various treatments (acupuncture, healers) with very little success.

Finally we met Roger Walker and his massage therapy.

I had a lot of doubts that massage therapy would help her condition, but as time went by, Roger explained that his massage therapy included Myoskeletal Alignment Therapy Extended (MATE) and it turned out to be every efficient. Roger reduced the twist and curve of the spine and gave relevant exercises that eased the pain and eliminated the "short of breath" episodes.

After 6 years of various treatments, my daughter seems to have found the one treatment that helps her cope with her condition while improving it at the same time.

While everyone's case is different, I strongly recommend Roger for any muscle or joint issue that you may have. I am sure he can help
