Adam Harris

Adam is a Registered Massage Therapist (RMT) within the practitioner team at Fortius. Adam's passion for massage therapy was formed while using massage therapy as part of his training recovery for ultra-marathon running. He found that his recovery improved after multi-hour training sessions, and in the subsequent years massage therapy has been vital to treating various overuse injuries and muscular imbalances that are commonplace in the running world.

Adam's practice focus ranges throughout a wide variety of subjects including endurance sport injuries/overuse injuries, sports related injuries, addressing and managing postural dysfunction, treating peripheral nerve compressions and lesions, and injury prevention through the use of massage for clients as they train and prepare for sporting events. Adam also has experience treating sore and tight patients associated with office work, pre and post-natal massage, spinal herniation's and facet locks, ACL/ MCL/LCL injuries.
