We are pleased to welcome Rob Morgan to the team at Kelowna Medical Massage. Rob is a registered massage therapist and has long had a passion for massage therapy. We couldn’t be happier that he’s now putting his considerable skill and dedication to the test here with us.
Rob first discovered massage therapy when he was a young martial arts athlete in his late teens. A friend introduced him to a practitioner of Rolfing Structural Integration at a wellness fair. Rob was very interested in how massage therapy helps correct dysfunction in the body and allows people to achieve their optimal balance and performance.
At the time Rob was unable to pursue an education in massage therapy and proceeded instead to earn his Red Seal Certification in carpentry. He worked for years in the industry and rose to become a journeyman carpenter. After a while, however, he noticed how the hard work and long hours he was doing was taking a toll on the health of his body, and this, combined with the instability of the construction industry, sparked him to reconsider his interest in becoming a massage therapist.
So what had started years earlier as a spark of interest now became a fully-fledged reality as Rob enrolled at the Okanagan Valley College of Massage Therapy, where he became immersed in developing his career as a massage therapist. He was an extremely dedicated and attentive student and graduated from the 3000-hour program in 2013.
Outside of his career, Rob is a very active person. He enjoys pole exercise and continues to train in Mixed Martial Arts. He takes full advantage of the magnificent landscape of the Okanagan Valley by downhill mountain biking and skateboarding, and taking to the slopes in the winter to snowboard.
The most common reasons people come to see Rob are for back pain, shoulder pain, and neck pain. Rob genuinely loves his job and enjoys nothing more than helping to relieve pain and correct any dysfunction his clients may be experiencing, whether from injury or from poor positioning.
Massage therapy can benefit you in so many ways. Let Rob help you get on track to regaining your optimal physical performance. Contact him today to learn more and set up an appointment.
