My name is Dave Kervin, and I’ve been a Registered Massage Therapist for over 16 years, working at Trent Health in Motion for the past 11.
From a very young age I’ve always had an interest in sports, fitness, health, and living an active lifestyle. My parents encouraged me throughout all my childhood sports ranging from rep hockey to track and field. Through high school as my love for sports increased I knew I wanted to pursue a career in health and fitness. After landing onMassage Therapy as the right path for me, I pursued my post secondary education at the Canadian College of Massage and Hydrotherapy, in Newmarket, ON. From there I had the opportunity to travel to Corner Brook, Newfoundland to work with the Core Medical team at the 1999 Winter Canada Games.
With that first taste of working with athletes, I knew I wanted to direct my clinical focus in this direction. I became the Sports Outreach Supervisor at Sir Sanford Fleming College with their Massage Therapy Program in the fall of 2003 and then progressed into instructing there with the 3rd year students in Clinical Treatments. In the fall of 2005 when Trent Health in Motion opened its’ doors, I read about the clinic opening in the newspaper and knew I had to contact Kylie Gibson (Head Physiotherapist) to pursue working with her and in the setting that the University clinic was providing. Through its’ growing student population and Varsity athletic programs, it was clear to me that it was the right fit.
