Patrick Smith, RMT
Before getting into massage therapy, I worked as a personal trainer and physiotherapy aide while completing my Bachelors of Kinesiology at the University of Ottawa. My massage education at Fanshawe College ended in 2021, where I also competed on the Cross Country team, culminating in a national title. My passion for sport expands beyond running, as I am an elite triathlete who has raced and enjoys all distances from mixed relays to Ironmans. My exposure to massage began through sport and it has helped me overcome injuries, training fatigue and keeps me in peak performance condition.
Massage therapy has benefited the majority of my family members ranging from emotional and physical stress, injury recovery and rehabilitation and chronic conditions. Observing what massage can do for such a wide range of people with different goals was fascinating to me. Understanding how different strategies can be implemented to fulfill a range of goals was my “a-ha” moment. What I love about massage therapy is that each treatment plan can have its own individualized goals and progressions, ensuring everyone gets the best possible treatment.
My massage therapy style revolves around treating injuries and conditions, but also includes some Swedish Massage relaxation techniques. I enjoy working with deep tissue & fascial stretching techniques, joint mobilizations and cupping therapy.

The Benefits of Registered Massage Therapy
Registered Massage therapy can be both a treatment and a preventative measure. People get massages to relieve pain and discomfort, as well as prevent worse injury to the body. Relaxation massages are often offered at spas, and don’t typically go as deep as a therapeutic massage.
