Registered Massage Therapist
*Currently on leave*
Richard’s passion is helping his clients feel well so they get off the sidelines and back into the game. Having studied biomechanics and treatment techniques in muscle rehabilitation, he is a firm believer in the ability of the body’s built-in healing mechanisms and knows healthy feet are a key component to overall health.
Since graduating from the Okanagan Valley College of Massage Therapy in 2004, Richard has worked as a Registered Massage Therapist in massage clinics specializing in sport medicine and wellness centres. He is qualified to treat athletes as well as individuals suffering from injuries, motor vehicle crashes and other physiological conditions. Richard is also a master instructor with Evidence Based Fitness Academy and continues to expand his knowledge of health through on-going course study.
Richard’s goal is to help his clients get their body into an ideal state of health by balancing how the body works through Massage Therapy techniques. Some of the techniques he draws upon to repair injured ligaments, muscles, fascia and tendons are Deep Tissue Swedish Massage, Myofascial Techniques, Trigger Point Therapy and Active Mobility and Stretching.
Richard knows the body can realign and begin the process of healing itself and regenerating tissues when the right conditions allow it to happen. He is trained to help minimize pain and discomfort from scar tissue, which builds up in our bodies after injury or surgery. He takes the time to assess your condition in order to properly identify the root cause and then help the body regain flexibility and range of motion through massage therapy.
Richard chooses barefoot and minimalist shoes for exercise and his everyday footwear to maintain his optimal health. Having completed ironman competitions and marathons, Richard remains active through a weekly running club and practicing at the archery range when he’s not spending time with his wife and two young children
First time appointment today with RMT Taylor. I was very impressed; she took the time to review and assess my needs. Very friendly, polite, professional, knowledgeable and… a great sense of humour. Their facility is overly exceptionally clean. They take the Covid protocol very seriously hence I feel very comfortable going there. It’s only been approximately two months since I starting attending Moveo, but it feels like I have been going there for years.
I love going here for my Physio! Georgina is very accommodating and welcoming with a big smile. Rob is very smart, knows his craft and bonus he is actually funny. I have seen so many physio but so far he is the “BEST”!! . I highly recommend Moveo.
This clinic is top notch. I’ve had both RMT and physio treatments at this location. Rob (PT) is very thorough, friendly, knowledgeable, and has a great sense of humor (the accent is dodgy 😉 ! Megan (RMT) is fabulous – her technique is great and she has a very caring approach. The receptionist, Georgina, is lovely,…very friendly and welcoming. The clinic is bright, clean, and has top of the line equipment. I highly recommend this clinic to anyone looking for treatments.
Excellent clinic. From the moment you walk in, to the moment you step out the door you will have nothing but a positive experience. My daughter and I see Richard one of the RMT’s and he is incredible. Extremely knowledgeable in way of injury rehabilitation! I have recommended many people to Richard and they have all had great experiences.
I have been fortunate enough to be receiving well needed Physio treatments from Rob. He is totally amazing, very knowledgeable, up on all the latest techniques, and professional to name a few attributes. Another employee with a great sense of humour!! Rob incorporates a variety of treatments that are specifically geared to whatever is needed to enhance one’s healing.
PT Rob is great! He definitely knows his craft. Highly recommended.
I’ve been seeing Dr Turner for years and there isn’t anyone else I would trust more with my health. This is a fantastic facility with very helpful front end staff that.
Physiotherapist Rob is amazing. He accurately assessed my injury & PT need, then developed a successful plan that led to a full recovery.
