MEET THE FUNC MONK TEAM

 

Krisjon Vargas

MS, BAHS (Athletic Therapy), HBSc, R.Kin, RMT, CAT(C)

Certified Strength and Conditioning Specialist
Functional Range Conditioning Mobility Specialist

Over the course of his career, Krisjon has provided mentorship to many young physicians and helped athletes and active lifestylers return to their physical lives pain-free and primed to reach levels of performance they didn’t even know were possible.

Currently leading the Integrated Support Team for Canada Basketball’s Junior National Team, Krisjon has treated a variety of complex injuries with an emphasis on correcting biomechanics by addressing soft tissue and motor control dysfunction. As a Certified Athletic Therapist, Krisjon’s approach involves applying manual therapeutic techniques to assess, prevent, and recondition musculoskeletal injuries to enhance overall function and performance. His success is grounded in treating the body as a whole instead of as compartmentalized segments where pain exists.

Experience has taught Krisjon that overall health and physical performance hinges upon the body’s innate ability to heal itself. Recognizing that muscles, ligaments, and joints are interconnected with the body’s neuromuscular and energy systems, Krisjon favours a manual approach to treatment rather than relying upon the use of electrical devices or medication.

 “At the end of the day, we are working on one body…yours. So it only makes sense to work with every aspect of you, who you are, what you do and how you do it. Whether we’re on the treatment table or gym floor, there is no difference; training and rehab are the same thing, balanced within one body.”

 

Dr. Jade Egonia

DC, BSc (Hon Kin)

Concussion Management Specialist
Functional Range Conditioning Mobility Specialist

Dr. Jade is not your average chiropractor. She knows very well that the old-school mentality of a chiropractor as someone who sees you for only two minutes simply “cracks” your back when something feels “out of alignment” just doesn’t cut it. While an adjustment can have many great benefits, Dr. Jade believes a good chiropractor can tell whether or not it is necessary.

With a background in kinesiology, Dr. Jade is trained to assess and manage musculoskeletal conditions and injuries. This means that her training extends well beyond the spine to include other joints, muscles, and ligaments in the body. Dr. Jade is certified in Athletic Movement Assessment which identifies and qualifies movement behaviours in athletic performance. She also specializes in concussion management and is certified with the Shift Concussion Team. Dr. Jade is not only experienced in treating athletes, she is also experienced in treating the elderly population. She is a Bone Fit™ trained professional, which is an evidence-informed exercise training designed for healthcare professionals to provide training on the most appropriate, safe & effective methods to prescribe & progress exercise for people with osteoporosis. Her services include diversified spinal manipulation, soft-tissue therapy, Graston technique, biomedical acupuncture, electrical stimulation, and personalized rehabilitative exercises.

“I have a patient-centred approach to therapy because I believe that achieving health goals is a partnership, not a one-way street. This is why the therapy I provide is personalized to what works best for you.”

 

Mark Taylor

RMT
Functional Range Conditioning Mobility Specialist

Mark’s approach is based on the belief that Massage Therapy can enhance one’s overall sense of emotional and physical well being as well as his/her quality of life. He supports his clients by helping to maintain balance through their health and is a firm believer in the body-mind connection.

Mark offers a variety of massage therapy methods, including recovery, hydrotherapy, and acupressure with each session personalized to meet individual preferences and needs. His experience with various levels of athletes, as well as patients with acquired brain injuries has enabled him to provide care through rehabilitation, exercise therapy, and injury prevention.

“I visualize the body to be made up of units. Each unit, or structure, has specific functions it is responsible for. Without access to proper function, the structure may not perform to its full potential; therefore one’s body is compromised and must repair prior to achieving their goal. By keeping the phrase—structure dictates function; function dictates structure—we are able to apply focused therapy and conquer your goals together.”
