My name is Holly Comito, and after 10 years of a career in the Engineering world, I decided to change careers and become an RMT. I wanted to be in a position where I could help people, and feel good doing it. I graduated from Westervelt College in 2015 and have been working alongside a respected chiropractor in the community ever since. In 2017 I started adding cupping into treatments in various ways and have seen great results by manipulating fascia. Completing the Fascial Stretch Therapy course has given me a new understanding for the importance and need for assisted stretching.

My name is Rui Saraiva, and fitness has always been a passion of mine. Helping people change their lives and increase their longevity has always been a huge reward for me as an athletic coach and rehabilitator. My journey began in 2007 when I joined an airborne infantry unit in the Canadian Armed Forces. In 2010 I wanted a new challenge, so I completed the Pre-Service Firefighter Education & Training program at Humber College where I was also designated Platoon Leader. My experience as a Paratrooper in the Canadian Forces and Humber Fire platoon leader has given me great practice dealing with physical and mental adversity. Having dealt with these high stress situations while under immense physical strain has helped me realize that true strength comes from the mind first. My biggest strength as an athletic coach has always been in my ability to help tap into an individual’s true potential, both physically and mentally, the same way I did my own.
As I developed through my career, I began noticing a large need for flexibility and mobility among my clients. I knew that if I wanted to get my clients to move better and achieve optimal strength that it would have to start with restoring their flexibility. That’s when I was introduced to Fascial Stretch Therapy, and since then have advanced through all levels of their certification program. Helping clients restore their quality of life by making daily activities easier and more enjoyable has been one of the most rewarding things for me as a manual therapist. I’ve completed numerous courses and certifications throughout my career, and this has had the largest influence on building my business as a professional by far.
