Take your health and fitness to the next level
Discover the amazing world of fascia and how it affects performance, recovery and your day to day health in this unique, hands on workshop.
Release Physical Tension
Let go of tight, painful restrictions to create space and freedom in the body. Promote circulation, detoxification and energy flow to previously compressed and stagnant tissues.
Connect to your Breath
Breathe deeper, slower & more completely as you let go of stubborn and hard to access tension in your core, chest, legs and neck.
Calm the Mind
When your body is relaxed, open and spacious and your breath is deep, your mind automatically slows down to help you feel centered during and after the workshop.
Fascia is quickly taking center stage in the health world.
Its critical importance as a connector of all cells and systems in the body is finally being recognized as essential for long term health and vitality.
Ironically, fascia is a mystery to most people even though it's the most abundant tissue in the entire body!
Its interaction with muscles, bones, joints, nerves, lymphatics, blood vessels, the gut and so much more ultimately determines how you function, feel and look.

I signed up for Justin's workshop on a whim and am so happy I did! It is the best deep tissue massage but you are in control! It has opened up my body and my mind as well!
I saw a workshop for Block Therapy at my yoga studio but had no idea what it was but was curious enough to sign up. I'm so glad I did! I knew after one class it would be a game changer.

"Good morning Justin. I just needed to reach out and let you know what I experienced (after only 1 workshop with you).
I usually wake up stiff and in pain in the mornings. The plantar surface of my feet, I'd wake up limping and the heels would be in pain. I didn't have those symptoms!!! I'm looking forward to using the Block daily! "

"Really enjoyed your workshop yesterday. I’ve been dealing with a bit of pain from a car accident several years ago and recently did an assessment with Beth Volk (Glow Fitness) to work on releasing muscle tension. She recommended I try your course and I can say I found it fantastic. So thank you for introducing me to a new way to help heal my body. Looking forward to continue practicing it."

Prior to finding out about Block Therapy in 2013 I was tense, tight and stressed My body was ageing quicker than I would have liked, presenting aches, pains, chronic stiffness, poor movement and slow recovery.
Regular massages, chiropractic adjustments and other holistic approaches helped but the downward spiral continued.
When I tried Block Therapy for the first time, I was blown away by the amount of pressure and tension I felt in my body.
Since then I've been able to release years of pain and tension, improve my posture, digestion, stress levels, breath, flexibility, mobility and more! I have come to see health and ageing in a whole new light.
My passion for this work lead me to become the first certified Block Therapy Instructor in Northern Alberta. Since then I've had the pleasure of introducing hundreds of people in Fort McMurray to this life changing practice in weekly classes, private sessions and 1:1custom programs.
I'm excited to be back with the first workshop of 2023 - happening at Mac Island!
I look forward to seeing you there!
