Brad Dow RMT

While studying psychology at the University of Guelph, Brad became interested in the mind’s ability to influence the body’s many complex processes related to the immune system especially in the presence of stress. Brad realized that since stress is a natural part of life and living, it’s integral that people have access to better ways of managing stress and the impact it has on the body, both functionally and structurally.  It was because of this interest that Brad packed up, left Ontario and drove across Canada in the summer of 1992 to study at the West Coast College in Vancouver to become a Registered Massage Therapist.
