ABOUT ME

 

Michal Kapic, DOMP
Manual Osteopath
Certified Rolfer®

                                                                    

Michal graduated from the Rolf Institute of Structural Integration in Boulder, Colorado in the summer of 2013. Prior to becoming a Certified Rolfer he received his Bachelor degree in Sports Management and a Masters degree in Sport Science in 2009.

 

Thanks to the great specialists in physical health education in the Czech Republic, his home country, Michal became more deeply involved in Bodywork.  During his university studies, he pursued Sports Massage Therapy (2008) and became a successful massage therapist consulting mainly with recreational athletes. He also uses Kinesiotaping to supplement his clinical practice.

 

Michal became a Manual Osteopath and Certified Rolfer due to personal experience with sports injuries and the recoveries that followed. From playing soccer and tennis at highly competitive levels to working as a ski instructor every winter, sport keeps him active and has always been a huge role in his everyday life.  With the intensity of high level sport, Michal contended with on-going injuries and subsequent surgeries.  From his personal injuries, he realized the role of physical health education in the prevention of further injuries.  In Osteopathy and Rolfing he sees a unique process of soft tissue manipulation that balances and realigns the body by releasing tension and strain. 

 

 

 

 

 

 

                                                                    

Michal has worked internationally in multi-disciplinary health centers, consulting with clients in the Czech Republic, USA and New Zealand. Now he divides his work time in                                                                     between Hollyburn Country Club and his practice at Ocean Wellness Centre. Additionally Michal can be found presenting workshops throughout the Vancouver area. In his technique you can find unique combination of Rolfing Structural Integration with Osteopathy that includes gentle joint mobilization, fascia manipulation,MET muscle energy technique, viscreal manipulation, cranio-sacral therapy, strain/counterstrain technique and facilitated positional release.

Michal came with his girlfriend to Canada in 2009 to work for the Czech Olympic Committee during the 2010 Vancouver winter Olympics.  Michal now considers British Columbia his home, and when not working, he will be skiing, mountain biking, golfing or playing tennis on the North Shore, or travelling abroad.
