I’m Back! Born in Cold Lake, 3rd generation military, traveled the world to learn and develop useful skills, and now returned for the Benefit of My Community!


First, if you are happy with the results you are getting with your current therapists (chiro, physio, massage), that’s great! You may want to stick with them. It’s all aspects of the relationship that make it work, so if it is of value, you should keep it. Otherwise, if you don't yet have a therapist you trust, I can help you to reach your Peak in Health, Performance, and Recovery. I tend to be very good at what I do. I don’t heal you – you heal yourself. But I do Facilitate your healing – creating an environment in which healing can take place faster and more completely.


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


Using the same basic techniques taught in massage schools everywhere, I developed a new modality called “Myoskeletal Alignment Therapy (Extended)”™. It builds on the principles of Myoskeletal Alignment Therapy – I am the ONLY Master Myoskeletal Therapist (MMT) in Western Canada, Canada’s first, actually – using treatments that are characterized by Slow, Intentional, 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.


Rather than treat the muscles directly, I influence the Autonomic Nervous System (ANS), which operates without your direct control. Various injuries and dysfunctions will cause pain and compensations that slow healing. My treatments influence the ANS system to ease up on the body tissues so that they may realign, function properly, and heal faster. I find that a holistic approach (Whole Person, not Woo Woo) tends to work better than completely focused treatment – I suspect that the body stays in better sync that way. I only do Evidence Based Treatments, and Nothing Invasive. I also have an extensive network of experts and researchers that I can call upon, if your needs require it.


What is MAT(E)™ good for? Interestingly, just about everything! My Patients get excellent outcomes for issues of Chronic Pain, Injury Rehab, Stress, Mobility, Posture, Work/Sport Performance Issues, Management of Specific Conditions, Corporate Wellness, and more. If I had a Specialty, I would say it is Neck, Shoulders, Back, and Hips, as I tend to help get a lot of these moving better, sometimes almost instantly. I have successfully taken on several challenges, as well. I love the variety that MAT(E)™ and traditional massage provide me, though my passion is to help people to heal themselves. My treatments are an investment in themselves with huge returns in all aspects of their lives.


I was often called on to treat the owners, managers, and staff of clinics/spas I have practiced in (I am now completely independent) 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 admit it or 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 ["Myoskeletal Alignment Therapy (Extended)"™].


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)"™] and it turned out to be very 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
