I am Roger Walker MMT RMT. I generally provide only a few types of treatments, though they can accommodate all types of issues (Pain, Posture, Mobility, Injury, Pre/Post-Natal, Sports, Lymphatic Drainage, Nerve Issues, Performance, Corporate Wellness, and much more).


1) RESULTS - I believe this should be the only real consideration. I tend to get many difficult cases, and still have successful outcomes. My modalities are very effective. As Canada's first Master Myoskeletal Therapist (MMT), I can treat anything a chiro, physio, or any other manual therapist can - just differently, possibly gentler and safer.

2) TOP DOG - In a class of nearly 50, where 50% failed even though they were thoroughly vetted in an intake interview, and the minimum to pass was only 70%, I was Top Student with a raw average of >99.25% in practical and theory, while in the midst of the most stressful time of my life. There are many other classes, and many other top students, though I am confident in saying it is unlikely you will find one with a higher average score.

3) SKILL STACKING - If you can't be Top Dog, you can try to be close by stacking your skills. That is, you get training in more than just the basics. This is actually supposed to be built into the career, with our associations requiring 10 Continuing Education credits per year. I am likely Top Dog here, also, as I have some 400 CE credits of training (about 40 year's worth), in just 4 years. Plus, I have a Graduate Degree in Myoskeletal Alignment Therapy. (Since I cannot carry all my credits forward each year, I still have to take more and more training!) Most therapists scramble just to take the bare minimum of training on time.

4) SELF TEACHING/LEARNING - It's one thing to learn from others in formal settings. It's something completely different to have the discipline to teach yourself new skills. I have probably done almost as much self-teaching/learning as I have formal training, greatly expanding my exposure to various modalities.

5) CREATING SOMETHING NEW - It is a great thing to learn new skills and put them to use. I believe it is the pinnacle to take those skills, add experience, do your own research, and finally, create something completely new and useful. I have done just that to create not just one, but TWO new modalities. I'm not speaking of a mish-mash of everything I learned, or trademarking a name for a commonly known technique - my modalities are completely new approaches to treatment, looking for very specific outcomes.

6) HOW BIG IS YOUR TOOLBOX? - I know of many therapists who brag about how big their toolboxes are. I take the opposite approach and find ways to pare down the tools that I need. In fact, I only use the same basic techniques taught in traditional table massage everywhere - I just use them a bit differently, for specific outcomes. The fewest tools with the broadest reach - the 80/20 Rule in action...

7) EVERYONE LOVES ME! - Actually, it's probably impossible to please everyone. However, some of my patients include Fighter Pilots and other Military, RCMP, Medical Doctors, Dentists, Nurses, Chiropractors, Physical Therapists, Other Massage Therapists, Owners and Managers of Spas and Clinics (and their Families), Teachers, Junior 'A' Hockey Players, Professional Athletes, Power Lifters, Weight Lifters, hard working Manual Laborers, etc. - a complete spectrum across all genders, all ages, and all backgrounds.

8) PASSION - This is one that my patients keep commenting on. I do what I love and love what I do. As my personal mission includes building relationships and helping others, this comes through in what I do. (Several patients told me I have a soothing voice - really?)

But don't think I'm trying to steal anyone else's business. In fact, if you are getting results and what you need from your current therapists, stay with them! It can be difficult to find the right match, so if that relationship works for you, stay with it! However, if you don't yet have a therapist, aren't getting what you want or need, or maybe want to get even more, I invite you to get your treatments from me.

What My Patients are Saying:

I see your passion and drive and am very impressed with your skills. My hips and low back feel fantastic after your treatment! [...] I absolutely admire you as a person and practitioner. [...] you have amazing treatment methods

Dr. Roshni Mehrabi (Doctor of Chiropractic), 2019 April 27, via Email

I’m Back! Born in Cold Lake, 3rd generation Cold Lake Military,

traveled the world to learn and develop useful skills,

and now returned for the Benefit of My Community!

MAT(E)™ is a SAFE, GENTLE, & EFFECTIVE Complement or Alternative to Chiro, Physio, and Other Manual Therapies.

Using the same basic techniques taught in massage schools everywhere, I developed a new modality called “Myoskeletal Alignment Therapy (Extended)”™. It builds on the principles of Myoskeletal Alignment Therapy – I am the ONLY Master Myoskeletal Therapist (MMT) in Alberta - Canada’s first, actually - using treatments that are characterized by Slow, Intentional, Gentle, and Pain-Free techniques. Where traditional massage is mostly push, my MAT(E)™ treatments are a more balanced combination of Compression, Range of Motion, Mobility, and Passive Movement.

Rather than treat your muscles directly, I help you to influence your Autonomic Nervous System (ANS), which operates without your direct control. Various injuries and dysfunctions will cause pain and compensations that slow healing. My treatments influence your ANS to ease up on your body tissues so that they may realign, function properly, and heal faster. I find that a holistic approach (Whole Person, not Woo Woo) tends to work better than completely focused treatment – I suspect that the body stays in better sync that way. I only do Evidence Based Treatments, and Nothing Invasive. I also have an Extensive Network of experts and researchers that I can call upon, if your needs require it.

What is MAT(E)™ good for? Interestingly, just about everything! If they make their treatments and homework a priority, my Patients get excellent outcomes. I have successfully taken on several challenges, as well. My passion is to help people to heal themselves.

Clinical doesn't mean Stuffy!

Even Advanced Clinical treatments are relaxing in this laid back location.
