Elliott graduated top of his class with a Masters of Science in Physiotherapy with honours from the University of East Anglia in the UK. He has continued his professional development through coursework in myofascial soft tissue release, kinsio-taping and reconciling biomechanics and pain science. Elliott believes that physiotherapy should be holistic in nature, considering the impacts of physical injury on a patient’s work- and social-life. Physiotherapists should seek to provide patients with the clinical expertise to aid in the rehabilitation of current injuries, while also empowering patients through education. In doing so, physiotherapists are able to help in the prevention of re-injury enabling patients to continue pursuing the activities that are meaningful to them. Elliott has also earned a Bachelors in Kinesiology and Health Science and Masters in Kinesiology and Coaching Science from the University of British Columbia which helped him earn the role of lead athletic therapist with the UBC Varsity Women’s Field Hockey Team from 2010-2012. Elliott has a wealth of experience in helping both elite athletes and Vancouverites alike achieve their health and fitness goals having worked as a kinesiologist and strength and conditioning coach in Kitsilano from 2012-2017.

Elliott Played field hockey internationally for the Canadian Senior Men’s and Junior Men’s National Field Hockey Teams from 2007-2013 and continues to give back to the field hockey community through coaching and providing athletic therapy services for high-performance field hockey players at Rob Short Coaching Academy. Despite having retired from competitive international competition, Elliott still enjoys pushing his mental and physical limits. While still involved in the Vancouver field hockey community competing in the Premier Division for West Vancouver Field Hockey Club, Elliott can often be found enjoying all that the pacific north west has to offer. From backcountry skiing and surfing in the winter, to mountain biking, trail running and rock climbing in the summer, Elliott finds he feels most like himself when he is out in the elements.
