Movement based therapy has proven to be the most effective form of care for acute or chronic injury, improving overall function and health as well as enhancing performance in sport. It has also been shown to be effective for the prevention of injury. Book with a kinesiologist if you want to live better, live longer and be healthier!

Hey, I’m Stephen!
I am a warm and welcoming person first, and a professional physiotherapist second. I have a Masters of Physical Therapy, a Bachelor of Kinesiology, and vast experience working as a personal trainer. I pride myself as being a lifelong learner. Since graduating in 2018, I have certified in: Sports injury taping, Vestibular Therapy (dizziness related disorders), concussion management, and Advanced Orthopaedic Manual and Manipulative Physiotherapy level 1. And I am currently completing my certification in Acupuncture and Dry Needling.
My personal training experience and knowledge in strength and conditioning is always on display in my physiotherapy practice, as I believe in a balanced treatment approach focused on functional exercise and programming. I bring enthusiasm and optimism to the table as your physiotherapist and look forward to applying my knowledge and experience into your care.
I was fortunate enough to spend the past 2.5 years gaining work and life experience in New Zealand. This international experience opened my eyes to different training and rehab styles. As a regionally recognized senior therapist in New Zealand, I split my time between a boxing gym, and an all-boys high school, working primarily with high level and nationally recognized athletes I was born and raised in rural Manitoba. My rural upbringing instilled a deep love of nature, wildlife, and the great outdoors – and it continues to shape who I am today. When I’m not working or weight training, I enjoy camping, hiking, biking, and playing any individual/team sport there is.
As your physiotherapist, I will actively listen and allow you to be an active member in your rehabilitation process, whether that means providing space for you to voice your concerns or making sure you’re comfortable enough to ask questions. Together, we can move towards progress and get you back to the things you love.

Jacky Chan Kinesiologist
Jacky immigrated to Canada with his family in 2001 and was raised in the neighbourhoods of Coquitlam. Growing up, Jacky was involved in many competitive team sports including basketball, volleyball, and track and field. It was his athletic background combined with his passion for learning about how the body works that drove Jacky to pursue a degree in Kinesiology.
In Spring 2017, Jacky graduated with a Bachelor of Science in Kinesiology with a concentration in active health and rehabilitation at Simon Fraser University. During his time as a student, Jacky gained valuable experience and knowledge in injury management and prevention through working as a student team trainer for the SFU men’s basketball team, and assisting physiotherapists and athletic therapists with their treatment protocols at the SFU clinic.
Jacky’s view towards active rehabilitation is simple, and that is to help his clients restore the mobile and pain-free lifestyle everyone deserves. He believes the first step is to help clients understand their injury and then construct an exercise plan tailored to their specific needs and goals. Jacky also designs his exercise programs based on functionality, therefore, many of his exercises can be performed at home or work with minimal equipment. Jacky is constantly broadening his practical skills and knowledge by learning new treatment methods and techniques to further enhance the quality of his service.
Outside of the clinic, Jacky also works as a lifeguard and teaches swimming to the public. During his free time, you’ll most likely find him somewhere deep in the woods, either hiking or camping.

Dallas has had the pleasure of working with a variety of patients with different conditions in multiple settings, including working with the varsity sports teams at UBC, patients with neurological conditions at George Pearson Center, patients with MS and Parkinson’s in WCCMT’s SPEC program, and pre/post-natal care with women at the student clinic in New Westminster.
As a registered massage therapist he is well trained in a variety of Swedish and non-Swedish massage techniques. Dallas’ massage style tends to focus on deep tissue muscle manipulations and the treatment of intra-muscular fascia. That being said, his “technique toolbelt” also includes much more, such as trigger point release, fascial release, and joint mobilizations.
Dallas chose a carrier path in massage therapy out of a deep value for science and tangible results, after experiencing just that from receiving massages himself. He has an internal intention to keep and push his profession in that direction and provide the most efficient and effective treatments and exercise prescriptions based on current literature.
