Hi, my name is Brayden Smith, I co-own Integrated Bodies with my partner Jorja.
My passion, attention and devotion lies within the fitness, health care, and manual therapies sector. I have been working in the fitness industry for many years now. As time has passed, I have evolved from a young, naive personal trainer to become a specialist in strength and conditioning and rehabilitation.
As I have continued to grow as a health professional, I have started to realign my interest and career direction towards remedial massage, neurokinetic therapies and structural balancing of the human body.
Our bodies are shaped by the environment and stimuli (lifestyle) that it's exposed to. Over our years of existence, our bodies will adapt to its environment whether that be for good or bad. As I continuously learn more and more about pain, posture, myofascial meridians and structural balance the more, I realize that we are all walking around with considerable physiological dysfunction. It's no wonder why we all spend so much on healthcare nowadays. Although it sounds very cliche, I believe I have been put on this earth to help reduce pain and improve the overall quality of life of all whom I come across.
I believe wholeheartedly that I will become a world class manual therapist and health professional, it is inevitable. I hope one day that I get the opportunity to help you improve your quality of life.
Continuous education is something that I am extremely passionate in. Frankly I believe that if you're not learning you're dying. In the past few years I have been lucky enough to work on my own personal development and gain some pretty legitimate qualifications . Here is a list of my current qualifications and future aspirations.
