Training with Intention.  

For several years I have practiced how one may exercise utilizing moving meditation & Qi (Japanese: Ki), as in Martial Arts and other disciplines

(such as in Traditional Chinese Medicine, Shiatsu and others).

In Western terminology this could be called Bioenergetics.

 In Yoga it is Prana.  

Work with your Energetic Self.  This act of focussed receptivity builds stamina and strength.  This reality has been proven through studies within the armed forces in individuals who practice Meditation. 

With Qi your training program will flourish & create true vitality.     

Rick has been a Practicing Kinesiologist working in Personal Training and Injury Rehabilitation since 2001. He has an affinity for training in the areas of functional strength and conditioning, cardiovascular capacity, and yoga/flexibility. 

As a Registered Shiatsu Therapist he has a deep respect for the restorative capabilities of bodywork, and since 2005 has been proud to offer this therapeutic modality. Rick is extremely pleased to be providing these programs through the Kinesiology Department at The Joint Physiotherapy Clinic!
