Jason van Meijel, RMT, Soft Tissue Specialist

Registered Massage Therapist

Jason is an honours graduate from the Massage Therapy program at Georgian College, Barrie. His passion for anatomy, physiology and rehabilitation were as apparent in his academic achievements as they are in his current role as an instructor in the massage program at the college as he motivates and enlivens students to achieve their personal best. He continually looks for opportunities to hone his delivery of care and utilizes a very dynamic and active approach to treatment.

As a competitive endurance athlete and NCCP certified coach, Jason loves to challenge himself and lives an active and healthy lifestyle. His passion for hundred-mile and eight-hour endurance mountain bike racing, both in Canada and the USA, has resulted in multiple podium finishes and his work as a coach has instilled a deep passion for helping others attain their own personal goals, be it competing at a world level or completing their first 5 km run. He brings this passion to treatment along with the understanding that everyone is unique, tailoring treatment to meet their needs.

Jason's approach to treatment integrates many different modalities including deep tissue massage, sports massage, trigger-point therapy, ART, cupping, IASTM and Swedish massage. His clinical experience working with athletes, both professional and recreational, have allowed him to recognize the demands athletes face, allowing him to approach treatment in a dynamic way to get patients back to sport quicker. His clinical experience working with patients experiencing chronic and acute pain, those involved in motor vehicle accidents, pre- and post-natal and those in long-term care homes, have allowed him to develop compassion and understanding which he brings to every treatment. His ultimate goal is to work with clients using massage and remedial exercise to help them achieve or maintain their individual health-care goals.
