MATTHEW HEBERT

“The truth is that there is nothing noble in being superior to somebody else. The only real nobility is in being superior to your former self.”

– Whitney Young

After an eight year stretch in the oilfield, Matthew decided to hang up the hard hat and pursue a diploma in personal fitness training. While in the patch he moved up the ladder at a dangerous goods facility by learning to do every job on site, which is an attitude he has held onto since changing careers. As a personal trainer, Matthew developed an interest in working with people in pain to increase their ability to move well and live well; It’s this interest that led him down the road of Massage Therapy. 

Matthew Hebert - Edmonton Massage TherapistGrowing up Matthew was active in many sports including football, baseball and BMX. However, a rock climbing accident brought everything to an abrupt halt — with multiple broken bones and no rehab plan, Matthew spent the next 10 years in agony. After finally looking for relief it was massage that provided the most noticeable changes. He literally learned first hand that quality therapy works better than walking it off! Matthew’s believe is that the best recovery is going to come from a combination of massage therapy and using exercise to teach the body how to hold itself properly. 

On top of being borderline obsessed with learning to provide the best treatment he is also likely the most positive person you will meet. Being able to find the positive in any situation helps Matthew connect with his clients to help them see past their current situation. 

Some of Matthew’s favorite conditions to work with include:

  • Shoulder Impingement
  • Shoulder Instability
  • Thoracic Outlet Syndrome
  • Pelvic Instability
  • Postural Compensations
  • Neck & Back Pain
  • Foot & Calf pain

Testimonial

FUN, FRIENDLY AND PHENOMENAL…

Those are the three words that best describe the treatment you will get from Adam. Adam is a genius when it comes to physiotherapy!

I would highly recommend Adam to anyone with any type of skeletal problems such as those I had exhibited. He is very thorough and very knowledgeable…and he gets results!!

Jade is the best! She kept me safe while recovering from a back injury and working full time. I found she was really great at adapting exercises and treatment to my pain level.

It is easy to see that Adam loves his job and genuinely wants to help his patients. He brings a sense of humor and a huge amount of knowledge to his work. I would recommend Adam to anyone looking for a great physiotherapist.

Jade in particular was an exemplary PT with an unprecedented aptitude for combining treatment with compassion. It’s rare to see someone so passionate and so dedicated to delivering exceptional care every single day. I would certainly recommend her services to newcomers because she explains the etiology of injuries well and works hard to facilitate recovery during sessions and offers good advice to work on after the session is complete.

Thank you Adam, you are the most educated professional I have ever worked with and without your help and teamwork, my members would not be able to sustain the quality of life that they deserve!
