Christian has an Specialized Honours BA in Kinesiology (R.Kin), a degree from Sheridan College in Athletic Therapy (CAT) and a degree in Osteopathic Medicine from the Canadian College of Osteopathy.  His love of sport and the desire to help others has led him to become an Athletic Therapist for many years, and now an Osteopath.  Christian has been in clinical practice for 16years and has developed the passion and skill to treat the body as a 'whole' and not just the injured area.  In addition, he works to find the 'cause', whether it is chronic imbalances or injury and treat it.

Christian is here to help and serve each and every client. He is keen to educate himself on the latest techniques and treatments so he can grow and improve his established skills.  Christian believes in a holistic approach to treatment and that the practitioner helps the body achieve balance, it then has the ability to heal itself.  While working as an AT, Christian became very interested in the connection between the body's systems and how to treat them in an orderly manner for optimum healing.  Through his studies in Osteopathy, Christian feels very equipped to work together with other practitioners.  He feels that by providing 'cause related treatment' with a comprehensive caring approach builds a great community.

" Despite all the challenges life has brought me emotionally and physically, BODiWORKS is the best customized program on a one to one basis. I could never have improved my health otherwise. It has been only eight months since I started the program, already my health has improved drastically. I throw my hat to Corey!"

R. Mainville

" The personal attention and the friendly positive atmosphere is what our family enjoys about BODiWORKS. It is the one lifestyle program that we have been able to stay committed and motivated to. We feel the program has met our needs and goals. The program has helped us to become more confident and feel better about ourselves. Both my children enjoy the program and have received many compliments on their body changes and how great they look now. The lifestyle change has built confidence in both my children. My son has benefited greatly by BODiWORKS. He had tried other programs with no success. His doctor recommended BODiWORKS and since then he has had great success. He has changed tremendously in body shape, confidence and lifestyle thanks to the BODiWORKS program. I no longer feel as though I have lost my money on another unsuccessful program. We don't feel like we are looking for a quick fix program.  The time and expertise that has been provided by BODiWORKS to help me and my family change our lifestyle was and is well worth all the time and effort."

Halfyard Family

" My son has shown more focus in unrelated activities - able to stay on task for much longer periods of time.  He is able to transfer what he has learned to other areas like home and school.  He talks about "BODiWORKS" constantly and looks forward to his visits.  Physically he is slimming down and gaining strength.  He is eager to learn how things work and some things are favourite and some are not.  The staff at BODiWORKS have a very good handle on his behaviour and language. They have managed to get him to do favourite activities as well as those that are not. I think it will continue to be a terrific program for my son. Thanks BODiWORKS!

S. Garvin, mother of a son in the Adapted Gym Program

" Every session I get invaluable educated information about what exercises are best for me at that moment and why.  When I ask about exercises I see other people doing, I get precise explanations about why that machine or exercise may or may not be a safe or efficient technique.  In six months not only has my body changed, but so has my attitude to my body.  I'm no longer weak.  I'm no longer achy.  And I really miss my routine if I have to miss it.  I always leave a session feeling good about myself and about what I just learned.  I would unequivocally recommend the BODiWORKS Institute."
