                                             Tom has been a massage therapist at Collegiate for close to five years. He
                                             completed his two-year massage therapy program in 1997 through the Northern
                                             Institute of Massage Therapy – via their affiliate in Clyde, Alberta. In 1998 he
                                             opened a small clinic in Drayton Valley, Alberta. In 2001 he began doing contract
                                             massage therapy for a staff wellness program at a large sawmill in Drayton Valley.
                                             He has a keen interest in massage therapy for sports injuries as well as repetitive
                                             strain injuries. A highlight of his career was volunteering at the World Games IAAF
                                             in Edmonton in 2001. He actually did massage on three medalists – two athletes
                                             from Africa and one from Bahamas! He noted that it was interesting that the poorer
                                             nations didn’t bring their own therapists compared to the more developed countries.
                                             He worked full time – 10 years – as an EMT for the ambulance service in Drayton
                                             Valley. He does myofascial and craniosacral therapies and Taping for Dysfunction.
                                             In his spare time he volunteers with local Search and Rescue organizations. He
