As a therapist James is deeply committed to understanding his patient. He recognizes that each individual has different goals and defines success in a unique way. He draws upon a personal love of physical activity and a comprehensive knowledge base in exercise physiology to create plans that respect the capability of each patient. James has had the opportunity to work alongside experienced clinicians in Canada and the USA during his time as a Physiotherapist.

James is a hometown boy. Born and raised in Toronto. He ventured to the USA for his post-graduate schooling and stayed there to develop his skills before the draw of his family and the great city of Toronto was just too much to bear. James claims he was an incredibly shy kid! But we are not sure we believe him. He is certainly cured of his shyness now! If you want to get him talking, just bring up anything to do with travel.
