Jasper Davenport Massage Therapist
Jasper holds a diploma from the International Academy of Massage in Ottawa where he graduated with honours. Being well versed in physical assessment he is able to identify muscular imbalances, movement restrictions and postural issues that help to get to the root cause of pain or dysfunction in order to treat the patients with maximum efficiency.
Jasper can use a variety of techniques to treat his patients including trigger point therapy, myofascial release, joint mobilization, and proprioceptive neuromuscular facilitation (PNF) stretching. He is also a certified Functional Range Conditioning mobility specialist (FRCMs). FRC is a comprehensive evidence based approach to training the joints and tissues of the body to achieve optimal mobility and control over end ranges. This approach is tailored to the patients needs and demands of their job, sport, or hobby.
Dealing with his fair share of injuries Jasper also knows the importance of rehabilitative exercise. He believes that the manual therapy applied by the therapist complements rehabilitation exercises, and that movement is important. He believes that the sooner movement or load can be reintroduced to a joint or muscle, the quicker recovery can be.

His hobbies include strength training, Thai Boxing, cycling and researching new treatment modalities and philosophies."
