She values every client and welcomes every opportunity to ensure that treatments are beneficial in relieving any pain and improving overall functions of the body to restore and encourage optimal health.  Treatment plans are specific and customized for each individual to address personal needs and health care concerns.

Tyler Bredschneider,
RMT, R. Kin., B.Sc. Human Kinetics 

Registered Massage Therapist


Prior to attending the Canadian College of Massage and Hydrotherapy, Tyler graduated from the University of Guelph where he completed a Bachelors of Science in Human Kinetics. During this time, he was a Guelph Gryphon varsity swim team member and elite triathlete.


He began working at Waterloo Physiotherapy as a Kinesiologist in the winter of 2016, and is now applying that experience to his Massage Therapy practice at the clinic. He utilizes this diverse education to aid clients with: injury rehabilitation, functional improvement and lifestyle balance. From his own racing experience, he has a special interest in the role manual therapy can play in increasing athletic performance.


He continues to lead a healthy lifestyle, but these days you are more likely to find him fishing, hiking, cottaging or reading, rather than racing.
