The breath… so simple, so essential, yet so often taken for granted. It is what can bring us from a state of anxiety into a deep state of relaxation within mere seconds. However, the breath in conjunction with massage can produce an even more powerful therapeutic outcome. In order for the body’s natural healing mechanisms to awaken, it must be brought into a state of ease — as opposed to the very common state of unease or dis-ease that so many of us live from today. It is for this reason that Brendan puts a strong focus on breathing and relaxation during his treatments.
Brendan graduated on the Dean’s List at the Vancouver College of Massage Therapy. His critical mind has developed a keen interest in orthopedics and myofascial release intertwined with the relaxing and stimulating effects of Swedish and sports massage.

Brendan believes that therapists are only catalysts to helping others achieve their optimal level of health. Aside from helping clients accomplish their short- and long-term health goals, his mandate is to empower each of them to take full responsibility for their health and life outside of the clinic room.
In the spirit of learning, Brendan has recently begun a new journey to further his education in the field of healthcare. He is now in his first year of a 4-year program in Clinical Herbal Therapy at the Dominion Herbal College.
