Gareth graduated from Curtin University in Perth, Australia with a Master of Physiotherapy and completed his Bachelor degree in Human Kinetics at UBC. His work as a kinesiologist and as a strength and conditioning coach for elite level hockey players prior to starting his physiotherapy studies solidified his strong background in exercise prescription and injury rehabilitation. His time in Australia only furthered his interests in manual therapy and sports injury, as he continues to enhance his skills by obtaining his levels in orthopaedic manual therapy and sports physiotherapy. An avid golfer, Gareth is now certified in specific golf exercise prescription and injury screening. His time away from the clinic has now shifted away from the rugby field and a playing career which included selection for the National Senior Sevens Team to the hockey rink, where he continues to compete passionately in the recreational leagues.
