Richard Lebert -  Registered Massage Therapist

As a educator I have committed myself to becoming a leader in the field of massage therapy. My strong communication and interpersonal skills have lead me to develop education programs for healthcare professionals in a number of fields.

Clinically, my focus is on interprofessional collaboration and patient-centred care. I have demonstrated an ability to contribute positively and work effectively within a team environment at one of the top sports medicine clinics in Canada.

Working at The Fowler Kennedy Sports Medicine Clinic alongside renowned Orthopedic Surgeons, Sports Medicine Physicians and Sport Physiotherapist. Gave me direct access to current research in many overlapping fields.
