As a certified Athletic Therapist, I use my hands on expertise to assess your body and restore proper alignment so you can feel and function better. Each person is a unique individual and as such it is important to understand the underlying source of your health concern.
I graduated from Sheridan College’s Sports Injury Management program in 2005 and have been practising as an Athletic Therapist for over 9 years.
I spent several busy years working as a fitness instructor, personal trainer, as well as a nutrition and wellness consultant in my late teens to my early twenties. Through this time I enjoyed helping people improve their health and wellness. I decided after working with many clients suffering from injuries I wanted to advance my skill set into rehabilitation.
5 years into working in the field of Athletic Therapy I decided it was again time to challenge myself. I made the decision to enroll in the Canadian College of Osteopathy’s five-year post-graduate program aiming to complete the program in 2015.
Over the years, I have stayed fit with a variety of physical activities including boxing, CrossFit, yoga, running, Muay Thai, submission grappling, hiking, roller blading, mountain biking and have completed a 21 day and a few 10 day juice fasts. I have sustained injuries along the way which help me relate to my patients as they go through their stages of healing to return back into active lifestyles. I practice what I preach and continually strive to achieve optimal health and balance in my own life. I too go for regular treatments and consult with experts in my field to keep myself in excellent physical, mental, emotional and spiritual balance.
I am focused on helping to educate my patients in clinic and at their convince at home through my “Therapist Thursday” videos on my YouTube channel http://www.youtube.com/ultimatesporttherapy. In my video’s I discuss therapist’s tips, tricks, health solutions, new fitness gadgets and more. I have also wrote and published “Stretching the Truth” a self help e-book on the ins and outs of stretching https://www.carolynzepf.com/stretching-the-truth/
I am grateful to have been a part of Steve Gaul’s medial team during his Guinness World Record accomplishment in 2011. I have worked onset with such movies as “The Mortal Instruments City of Bones” and “Pompeii” and work regularly with Combative Sports Canada (CSC) as part of their medical team. I enjoy being a guest presenter at health, fitness, sports and rehab events. My greatest accomplishment has been to work with patients, like yourself, since I opened my clinic in 2007.
I look forward to working with you and helping you achieve your optimal health.
