Luke was born in rural Quebec, and raised in rural Prince Edward Island. He began charting a path in health care and the musical arts in childhood, melding, developing and moulding these two unique proficiencies simultaneously.
His journey into healing arts began by walking on his parents’ backs regularly. After managing their aches and pains, as a teenager, he shared foot and shoulder massage with those near and dear. Experiencing his gift for healing touch, family and friends encouraged Luke to pursue professional training for Massage Therapy.
Coming to Toronto to attend Massage Therapy Training as a young adult, he graduated in 1997 from Sutherland-Chan Massage Therapy School and Teaching Clinic. Through more than 2 decades of practice, Luke has attended numerous workshops, courses, seminars and learning initiatives. Additionally he has received bodywork regularly. All of these experiences, as well as his art as a musician, singer and songwriter, continue to inspire and inform his practice of massage therapy.
In addition to his Massage Therapy training, Luke has studied Traditional Thai Massage, CranioSacral Therapy, Shiatsu, Therapeutic Touch, Passive Stretch Massage, Visceral Manipulation, Hot Stone Massage, and Tibetan Accupressure Massage. Luke’s current practice of Thai Massage and Massage Therapy focuses on correcting and balancing bio-mechanics, and he especially enjoys working with musicians in this capacity.
