David Coady, Canada

Latest participant at the World Championship in Massage 2020 in Copenhagen is David Coady from Canada. IMA has asked him to tell about himself.

Prior to becoming a massage therapist, I studied Eastern medicine to develop a better understanding of the whole body and their complex processes. It was during this time that I decided to further my studies and become a Registered Massage Therapist through the massage therapy program at ICT Northumberland College, located in Nova Scotia, Canada.

Since graduation in 2015, I have gained additional accreditation and training in Auricular Medicine, Japanese Hot Stone, Thai Yoga, Suikodo, Myofascial Cupping, Reiki, Guasha, M2T Blading, Reflexology, Craniosacral, Aromatherapy, and Acupuncture to name a few. 
My treatment style focuses on chronic pain and overall dysfunctions within the body, including how the internal organs directly influence external symptoms. I believe in finding the root cause of discomfort within the client instead of solely addressing the symptoms. My clients typically feel immediate relief with a newfound appreciation for how truly healing and life-changing massage therapy can be, with the right practitioner.
 

The pressure I use has been described as moderate to deeper pressure, with the tendency to treat myofascial restrictions and trigger point release. For some clients, it is a matter of allowing their body to unwind, while with others it is about encouraging small lifestyle changes through stretching or diet, for example.

I will be competing in the freestyle western and Asian Massage.
