Lester is the in-house physiotherapist for Raincity Wellness. He holds a Master of Physiotherapy with Distinction from the University of Sydney and a Bachelor of Science in Kinesiology from Simon Fraser University. He is also a Certified Strength and Conditioning Specialist.
Lester is passionate in working with professional and amateur boxers/athletes, helping all individuals recover from their injuries and journeying alongside them to reach their goals. His treatment involves a hands-on approach of manual therapy and IMS, combined with restoring functional movement through individualized programming and exercise. His own journey has led to a strong interest in sport-specific performance and return-to-play. This began when he was forced to the sidelines following long-term injury from competitive basketball and club volleyball at SFU. He has since worked closely with players competing at the national, collegiate and club levels in a dual role as both therapist and coach. He is also happily committed to a lifelong pursuit of clinical excellence and learning, and has undergone training in manual therapy, management of tendinopathies, concussion rehabilitation, migraines and headaches, and more.
Outside of the clinic, Lester can often be found on the court playing basketball and volleyball, or throwing hooks and roundhouses at the heavy bag. As a creative, he enjoys jamming on his beautiful acoustic guitar, and satisfying his taste buds with the best coffee and bubble tea that Vancouver has to offer.
