Letter of Introduction
Hello, my name is Richard Lebert and I am a Registered Massage Therapist practicing in Petrolia Ontario. I am writing to introduce myself and tell you about the work I do.
Prior to moving back to my hometown of Petrolia I had been working at The Fowler Kennedy Sports Medicine Clinic seeing wide variety of patients. I’m excited to bring my skillset back to my hometown and work with the dedicated health professionals in the area.
Massage therapy is a multi-modal clinically-oriented healthcare option that has been show to improve quality of life for patients with a variety of conditions (Skelly et al. 2018). In-fact recent clinical practice guidelines from The Canadian Medical Association suggest that massage therapy is a preferred treatment option for patients suffering from back pain, knee osteoarthritis, neck pain, fibromyalgia, headaches or migraines (Busse et al. 2017, Traeger et al. 2017).
It is my intention to use massage therapy to support each patients’ health care plan and to provide quality care for all patients. I work with a variety of conditions and create a customized, outcome-driven treatment plan for each patient to address their health needs. Please contact me if you would like to discuss any of this information in depth, or if you are looking for a professional, dedicated Registered Massage Therapist Committed to Providing High Quality Evidence-Based Health Care.
