This includes players in the Canadian Football League, National Lacrosse League, golfers on the PGA tour, past professional and youth soccer players, nationally ranked ski team members and members of some of Canada’s top curling rinks, some of whom are champions and Olympians. Athletes rely on their bodies functioning at peak capacity, but everyone can benefit from improved performance and adaptability. This is the case whether one is at a computer for many hours per day or caring for children – these can be considered athletic activities in their own right. Everyone can benefit from improved functional performance.

Fred has been working to heal people’s bodies and minds since the 1960s, teaching meditation, breathwork, and personal development systems. He has also been a teacher, and worked as a Clinic Supervisor at Kikkawa College of Shiatsu & Massage.
Fred is a practitioner of Wholeness Therapy, which focuses on the body and mind as an integrated and interconnected system. The goal is to bring all of the different aspects of ourselves back into balance to improve our everyday lives. Our lifestyles have provided us with many ways to damage our bodies, and while we can treat the body, it is often important to treat the underlying mental causes to help prevent the damage from recurring. To do this, Fred promotes increased body/mind balance and harmony.
