DR. MATTHEW SHEPPARD
Dr. Matthew Sheppard graduated from Canadian Memorial Chiropractic College in 2012 and has been serving his community ever since. Matthew grew up in Calgary and always had an interest in the health care system and chiropractic was a natural calling to him. "When a patient is under my care, I want to give them the best quality treatments every time. If I don't see results quickly then we will change the treatment plan or if I can't help you I will give you my best recommendations of who to see or what to do next". Dr. Sheppard does full body adjustments and specializes in soft tissue techniques such as Muscle Release Therapy (MRT) and Graston. You can always email Dr. Sheppard personally at firstname.lastname@example.org if you are have any questions or concerns such as rehab exercises, supplements and/or orthotics.
Registered Massage Therapist/ Certified Laser Technician
I was first introduced to Massage Therapy/Therapeutic Bodywork training while working in California training horses in the early 90’s. Originally this training was taken to help my riding students achieve higher performance levels, and of course to work out some of the aches and pains associated with that level of riding and competition.
This training, combined with my specialty of healing abused and damaged horses eventually morphed into starting one of the first Therapeutic Riding Programs in Alberta, and later into Equine Assisted Learning programs.
Over the years, the horse training has taken second place to my Massage practice, which has been my full time priority for over 10 years. During this time, I have taken many courses and additional certifications to upgrade and add more ‘tools’ to my tool belt, and include advanced training in: Aromatherapy, Hot Stone Massage, LILT (Cold) Laser therapy, R.A.P.I.D. Adhesion Release Technique, Therapeutic Cupping, Trigger Point Therapy, Gau Sha (like Graston), Reiki and coming soon, Low Intensity Light Therapy (cold laser).
Although my specialty is Intense Deep Tissue therapy and Sports Massage, most recently I have begun the process of training in Clinical Somatic Education, to become a certified Somatics Practitioner and Educator. This gentle practice transcends the solely physical to re-habituate the mind/body connection to alleviate the Sensory Motor Amnesia and the resulting chronic pain, that so many of us suffer from.
I look forward to combining all of these treatment tools to help you live your most pain free and ‘ageless’ life possible!
When not in the clinic you will find me spending time with my two beautiful grown children or with my equine friends – because the world does look better from the back of a horse!!
