Christopher Caddey, RMT CMAG – Neurofunctional Practitioner

Chris, a graduate of Mohawk College, became a registered massage therapist in early 2017. Throughout his career, Chris’ focus has centered on improving his clinical skills to help clients with sports injured, acute pain, complex pain and chronic pain. His efficient treatment approach focuses on finding the root of the pain through modalities such as neurokinetic therapy, neurofunctional acupuncture, taping and cupping. Chris prides himself on giving his patients answers, relief and healing as a last resort after they have tried other forms of therapy.

Chris’ massage treatment will be unlike your typical massage therapy appointment, as it will be more rehabilitation based. Based on observations from the initial questionnaire and assessment, Chris treats with a very specific approach to his findings using tools such as manual therapy, medical acupuncture, taping, exercises, and cupping. Rather than ‘chasing the local pain’,  Chris’ treatment focuses on assessments based on logical findings of the body’s mechanics, anatomy and physiology. 

Currently, Chris continues to improve his clinical skills set and education as he spends his spare time volunteering with sports teams, earning hours towards his athletic therapy license. Chris is currently a student at the Canadian College of Osteopathy, and hopes to offer osteopathic manual therapy as he is able.

Outside of Chris’s clinical life, he spends a lot of his time training and competing in track & field. An all Canadian athlete, Chris is a passionate mid distance runner, who competed in college and achieved awards such as a national silver, provincial medals. He also spends a lot of his time helping on his family dairy farm.
