Gina is passionate about all things health and wellness and that includes moving often and moving well. She believes movement is one of the most powerful medicines we have and by finding a mind-body connection through movement we can balance physical, emotional, and mental well-being. Gina holds a Bachelor’s degree in Kinesiology from the University of Lethbridge (2000) and another in physiotherapy from the University of Alberta (2005). Gina’s extensive post-graduate training in both manual and McKenzie based treatment techniques give her a unique skill set. Gina focuses on sports therapy and postural and repetitive strain injuries. Her treatments include spinal mobilization and manipulation, spinal stabilization (CORE) exercise, neural tissue mobilization, postural taping and myofascial release. Gina is also qualified to practice acupuncture and uses this, combined with a dry-needling technique (Gunn IMS), for patients with chronic pain and long standing musculoskeletal problems. She is trained in Selective Functional Movement Assessment (SFMA) levels and believes full body top down assessments are important to identify the true root of the problem in order to help her patients with both mobility and stability motor control problems.
In her off time Gina is an avid athlete with a background in many different sports, such as basketball, fitness competitions, triathlon, and CrossFit, but cross trains today primarily because she loves it! She believes that not only physical health is important but mental health should not be over looked and practices both meditation and yoga on a regular basis. Gina also consults out in the community and provides clinical and professional practice leadership. She provides coaching, mentoring and work planning to support various health professionals in their practice. She runs various Movement and Mobility workshops to educate both health professionals, coaches, and athletes on the recognition of mobility and stability issues and how it can alter sport or training performance.
Gina is highly disciplined and knows that consistent work and dedication are keys to success. She also values life-long learning and continues to further her own education by taking advanced physiotherapy courses. Gina is friendly, enthusiastic, detail oriented and professional. She is committed to high quality care and loves knowing that her clients leave Restorative Sports Therapy feeling better.

Jamie believes in daily movement and understands the importance of recovery and how it enables us to adapt to the demands we place on ourselves. Jamie uses the reset technique of massage to help restore the body, allowing it to recover so her clients can continue to do the activities they love. She understands the importance of collaborating and working with other paramedical therapists, so her clients get the most out of coordinated care. She is invested in fostering connection through mind, body, and spirit, and feels movement allows us to experience emotion, freedom, and strength.
