He is a professional member of the Ontario Osteopathic Association.

Exercise Coach, certified C.H.E.K. Golf Biomechanic, and a certified USA Weightlifting Sports Performance Coach. He has spent several years in the health and fitness industry training high-level professional athletes and working with special populations. As an athlete Rui has been involved in martial arts since 1998, and has competed both locally and internationally in Judo and Brazilian Jiu Jitsu.
Rui believes that classical osteopathy is arguably the most holistic of all approaches to alleviating pain and the symptoms of disease. It recognizes the mind/body/spirit connections that make us whole. Every patient is unique and the treatments he provides vary depending on the individual. He applies the classical style of osteopathy to his patients, which is painless, non-invasive gentle and light, yet precise and to the point.
This unique integrated approach combines both exercise and osteopathy in order to help with patients’ overall health concerns and vitality.
