Jonathan De Keyser

[ Registered Physiotherapist BSC, MSCPT ]

Jonathan De Keyser was born and raised in Belgium but found his love for B.C. in 2004 during a 1-year exchange program with the Rotary Club of Courtenay. Ever since his desire to make his way back to Canada pushed him to succeed in his studies as Physiotherapist.

In 2010 Jonathan graduated with a Master in Rehabilitation Sciences and Physiotherapy, Specialized in Sports and Manual Therapy, at the Catholic University of Leuven, Belgium. Barely graduated he realized Physiotherapy alone wasn’t satisfying he’s believe and capabilities to improve clients injuries, thus decided to profound himself into the holistic approach of Osteopathy.

After spending 3 years specializing within the Osteopathic world, Jonathan enjoys treating injuries in a holistic way. This means Jonathan will look beyond a local injury and search for other possible mechanisms throughout the body as the cause of injury. Techniques used vary from Manual Therapy, Soft tissue, Trigger Points, Lymphatic System stimulation, Arterial flow Stimulation, Fascia, Visceral, and others.

Being fluent in French, Dutch, and English, Jonathan quickly made his way through different top sports competition as therapist combined with practice in Private clinics surrounded by high-level therapists and Professors.

In 2012 he worked for the “F.B.R.B.”, Belgium National Rugby Team, followed by the Belgium National Judo Team in 2013. After this experience, he searched for another type of sport to learn from and found this as head Physiotherapist for the Royal Beerschot Hockey Club, 1st division men, in 2013-2014.

Besides work or studies, Jonathan has always been very interested in playing sports such as rugby, soccer, tennis, running, kite surfing, dancing (University dance teacher 2009-2010), skiing and athletics.
