Terry Oleksow, RMT MTAA

      Terry is the owner and founder of Massageworks.  He is a 30+ year member of the Massage Therapists Association of Alberta and has served on the Board of Directors as well as on several Committees. During his time on the MTAA board, the association joined the other provincial members of the CMTA across Canada in adopting a 2200 hour training standard. He helped organize upgrading courses for members to increase their hours of training over a 4 year period, while being able to continue working in their profession.

      Terry's experience and continuing training has helped him develop a muscle specific approach to deep tissue therapy. He integrates Myofascial Release techniques with a unique approach to Trigger Point therapy as well as PNF stretching and counter strain. Each treatment is specifically focused to address the needs of the individual. Terry's career in Massage Therapy began in 1987 and he worked with the newly formed Alberta Sports Massage Team to help athletes as they prepared for the 1988 Winter Olympics. After the Calgary Olympics, Terry was invited to work with Hockey Team Canada as part of their training camp team, a role he enjoyed from 1988-1991. His sports massage experience and continuous learning have helped him develop a better understanding of fascia’s role in movement and its involvement in restricted or painful movement.

Terry's muscle-specific approach is effective in treating muscle imbalances that often develop after injuries, overtraining or from posture and strain in workplace environments. He has also become adept at recognizing patterns that often develop into restricted or painful conditions and treats related areas as well as points where pain is most intense.

Terry is a registered provider with Veteran Affairs Canada.
