Justin Philips is our resident Kinesiologist at Kelowna Medical Massage. Justin first encountered the study of Kinesiology late in high school. Being a competitive athlete in hockey and soccer as well as recreational snowboarding, mountain biking, skateboarding, and playing rugby throughout his youth he experienced his share of sports injuries. He was always interested in determining the cause of his injuries, what structures exactly were injured, and furthermore how to fix them to get back to sports! It was a natural progression for Justin to become a Kinesiologist. He completed his Bachelor of Kinesiology with Honours at Brock University in 2010 and has also completed the CAN-FIT-PRO personal trainer program. His experience as an athletic trainer, personal trainer, and kinesiologist gives him a versatile skill set.
