Lindsay Ibey, Certified Athletic Therapist
Being an Athletic Therapist was a dream of Lindsay’s from a very young age. She received her Bachelors degree in Kinesiology at the University of Calgary and shortly after, her Certification in Athletic Therapy.
Her appointments will make you think differently about the body. She uses a combination of skills including NKT (Neurokinetic Therapy)and P-DTR (Proprioceptive Deep Tendon Reflex) to pinpoint and correct compensation patterns of the body as well as CranioSacral Therapy to gently allow the body to self correct and realign.
Though Lindsay is at work most of the time, when she’s not, she is most likely traveling a new country, spending time with her husband or trying to tire out her husky puppy!
Brodie Lefaivre, Certified Athletic Therapist
Brodie’s passion to become an Athletic Therapist started from playing multiple sports growing up from court sports like volleyball and basketball all the way to gymnastics and skiing. Being raised in Canmore she was always surrounded by adventure and a very active atmosphere. As she grew up she began fostering an interest for how the body performs all of these sports and how big of an impact an injury can have on your athletics and your day to day life.
She graduated from the University of Calgary with an Undergrad in Kinesiology and obtained her Advanced Certificate in Athletic Therapy from the University of Mount Royal.
She loves learning and she loves teaching so during your treatment with Brodie she will be sure to explain and teach you what she is finding and why she is choosing certain treatment methods to help you get back to your active life.
When Brodie is not in the clinic you can find her outside either camping in the summer or skiing in the winter. She loves exploring and being with family and friends.
Harley Thwaites, Athletic Therapy Certification Candidate
Harley’s career path as an Athletic Therapist took many loops and turns before ending up at Competitive Edge and previously the University of Winnipeg. Through various sports (and injuries), he grew an interest in human movement and injury.
Harley enjoys the rehabilitation process, with a focus on strength and conditioning for optimal function. While injuries are a driving force for visits in the clinic, he also enjoys injury prevention methods through correcting movement patterns and optimizing biomechanics. Working with various high-level soccer, hurling and rugby clubs, he has had the opportunity to do extensive return to play work.
Growing up in Vancouver, Harley always enjoyed outdoor activities around the ocean and mountains. Now that he is back near the mountains, he can finally return to hiking, camping and skiing in the mountains. You can also find him in the gym, working with various teams, traveling and trying new skills and movements!
Ally Lo, Athletic Therapy Certification Candidate
Growing up playing basketball and other sports, Ally has always been passionate about helping everyone to excel in their sports, everyday life and overcome their injuries that became “roadblocks” in life. Fun fact, Ally was born and raised in Hong Kong! She decided to move to Calgary in 2012 to pursue her passion and education in Athletic Therapy. One of her main goals in the field of Athletic Therapy is to educate the population to be as knowledgeable as possible about how their body works, guiding them to take the best path on the road of recovery and maximizing performance. She will be graduated in May and is looking forward to pursuing various continuing education courses in the near future.
When she isn’t studying for her national exam or working at the clinic, you will find her playing the piano/ guitar, writing a song or filming her travels!
