Austin's Story

My passion for movement and manual therapy manifested from my personal struggle with injuries, poor posture, and chronic pain. My love for extreme sports had significantly impacted my quality of life by 18. Since then, I’ve spent the last 10 years studying various forms of movement and manual therapy to rehabilitate my body and help others do the same. My practice integrates elements of corrective exercise, functional conditioning, yoga, massage, and manual therapy to rehabilitate the body and master movement as nature intended.


In his personal time

Austin loves music and he loves to dance. Austin expresses his love for movement and music through the circus arts: Aerial Acrobatics and Fire Flow Arts (Fire Dancing). When he is not hanging upside down or tearing up a dance floor, he enjoys travelling, studying psychology, and cooking up a storm.
