John Hunter Podcast

John Hunter completed his Masters in Physiotherapy at McMaster University in 2002. He has a passion for problem solving and finding the underlying cause for injuries.

John enjoyed travelling internationally with the Canadian Canoe Kayak team to many world cups and world championships over the years. In 2007 he was selected to the Canadian Medical team as the main physio for Rowing and Canoe Kayak for the Pan American Games, and in 2008 he worked at the pre-Olympic training camp for the Canoe Kayak team.

In 2014 John opened Rise Health with his business partner Lisa Munkley and has greatly enjoyed working there as part of a multidisciplinary and collaborative team.

John enjoys time with his family and spending time in nature. He also has a daily practice of mediation and Qi Gong to maintain balance and peace in his life with the hope that it will positively affect those around him too.
