Jeremy completed his undergraduate degree in Kinesiology, in the small Ontario city of Waterloo, before turning his attention to Massage Therapy. His passionate, friendly and positive personality is showcased in each and every one of his sessions. He has found that a background in Kinesiology has given him a better understanding in anatomy and pathophysiology which he uses to offer ridiculously great treatments!
Such a friendly and welcoming environment. I’ve been seeing Jeremy for massage therapy for about a year and a half now. I’ve had a few injuries and he’s helped so much with figuring out why it’s happened and how to fix it so it doesn’t happen again.
Jeremy was first exposed to the health field when he competed in National Level track and field. Throughout his athletic career, he suffered various injuries starting from his feet, all the way up to his head. Needless to say that he is no stranger to pain and injuries. He found that his injuries have hindered not only his performance, but also had an impact on his mind. After being too stubborn to seek help from professionals, he learned the hard way that one can only do so much for themselves. When he reached a plateau in improvement, he decided to try a variety of therapies including physiotherapy, chiropractic care, kinesiology treatments and massage therapy. He found that when individuals work as a team, they can help many people. This is an example of why he agrees that ‘one is a very lonely number to accomplish great things’.
After rehabilitating and recovering from his various injuries, Jeremy has found a great interest in the game of volleyball. When he’s not working, you can likely find him at the gym doing functional workouts or subbing/playing drop-in with his friends. Once summertime rolls around, you can catch him on the “beach” courts playing beach volleyball and consequently, getting his tan on! He has even played against the amazing Olympic quarter finalist Sarah Pavan from team Canada at a few drop-in sessions.
Jeremy exemplifies caring and understanding. His passion in helping people is portrayed through his actions and knowledge. Jeremy really enjoys finding the missing links in the body and re-educating the body how to move. While he puts his best efforts forward to helping people he understands that not everyone is built the same. For every individual, Jeremy uses different approaches and methods based on what their specific needs are and what level they are aiming to be at.

My favourite movie of all time is V for Vendetta.
Huge Harry Potter nerd! I have read all books in the series at least twice. Aside from the fantasy books, a few authors I have read recently been reading to grow myself as a therapist and a person are Tom Myers, Dale Carnegie and John C. Maxwell.
I used to watch a lot of TV, and I can say that from all the shows, Sherlock (BBC) was my favourite, but the Planet Earth series are a very close second.
Achievement level, locked. As a newbie, I still need to earn my stripes at Integral Physio! And I am looking forward to doing so.
As you may have noticed, volleyball would currently be my favourite sport (both beach and indoor). However, in the past I have also played football, basketball and competed nationally in Track and Field for long jump and triple jump (back in the glory days).
