    Life at Trent Health in Motion – Working In A Multi-Disciplinary Clinic

Life at Trent Health in Motion – Working In A Multi-Disciplinary Clinic

I often get asked, ‘what’s it like working at Trent Health in Motion?’ My simple and short answer is, ‘it’s great! I love my job, where I work, and the people I work with.’ For a more in depth response, I will usually reflect on how I ended up where I am, working with the amazing team that I work with now and how the facility itself has evolved over the years to become such a great, state of the art, leading multidisciplinary clinic that it is today. That response usually looks a bit like the following……
 
Over the years I’ve had the pleasure of working alongside some excellent Massage Therapists, from whom I’ve learned a great deal from and shared a wide range of ideas and techniques towards providing effective treatments for our clients. Coming out of my schooling, I was eager to put my education and newly acquired skills to use, treating athletes and members of the general public within Peterborough and the surrounding area. I began my practice with a local Massage Therapy clinic close to downtown. Four Registered Massage Therapists under one roof, all working together, providing our clients with the best hands on care that we knew how to provide. Looking back on it now, it seemed like an ideal situation for a Massage Therapist starting out………….working alongside other experienced Massage Therapists. And it certainly was a great start to my career. We shared treatment options, different approaches to achieve better results for our clients, and I learned a great deal from my more experienced peers. It worked out well and we got along great! For a Massage Therapist new into the profession, it was the perfect scenario to get […]

The Dave Kervin Report: The Therapist/Athlete Relationship.

For as long as I can remember I’ve been passionate about sports and all that encompasses them. From learning new skills on skates with the puck, to seeing how far I can push my body into the red zone on the bike, all the way to the ongoing battle of mastering those first 25 meters out of the starting blocks in the sprints. It’s what fuels my interest in sport and how we put our bodies to the test. It’s been an incredible driving force behind learning not only how my own body functions, but how the bodies of each athlete I’ve worked with over the years and continue to work with today, operates and maintains optimal performance. I consider myself lucky to be working in a profession, where not only do I get to assess and study the biomechanics of the human body and how it manages itself, but I get to see how individuals push it to its’ limits, demanding the very most from it, often day in and day out, time after time again. The really cool part is, I get to be a part in maintaining that optimal performance they seek from it, or in rehabilitating or repairing it when it breaks down on them. Either way, whether it’s maintaining or rehabilitating, as a Massage Therapist, I get to play an integral part of it all coming together, and personally I think it’s the greatest job in the world! I’ve decided to share a few general pieces of information for not just other therapists looking to work within the sport community, but for athletes looking for further gains or tips to help in […]
