Jeff graduated from the University of Saskatchewan in 1989. From the very onset he has taken a keen interest in developing his manual therapy skills. Always pursuing new and innovative ways to assist his clientele, Jeff has become well educated and extensively practices Myofascial Release as a means of optimizing function. Jeff continues to work diligently to integrate the Myofascial Release approach with the skills he has acquired as a Part B therapist. Of particular interest at this time is to truly integrate the assessment and treatment of separate body parts through integrating the myofascial mechanical link between the cervical spine and shoulder girdle regions as well as the lumbar/pelvic/hip relationship. This approach appears to be very successful when conventional evidence-based approaches fail.
