Born and raised in Italy, where he also earned his Bachelor of Science in Kinesiology graduating on the Dean's list in Sicily, Rocco's Canadian journey started almost 4 years ago. He obtained his 2200-hour Massage Therapy diploma here in Calgary. Rocco uses a variety of therapeutic techniques such as deep tissue, myofascial cupping, trigger point release and PNF, to treat soft tissue injuries and dysfunctions, and for overall maintenance and performance.


Rocco loves learning about the functional movements of the human body. His involvement in playing and coaching sports has helped him to better understand the connection between inefficient movement patterns and their negative impact on the body.


Rocco is confident that his patients will appreciate the attentive and professional care that he provides, in collaboration with the Innovative Sport Medicine Team. When he is not helping people to stay healthy, you can find him on the basketball court or in the weight room, biking and travelling all around the world, or simply cooking a delicious Italian meal for his friends.


Barb has been a registered massage therapist since 1997, when she graduated with an Honours Diploma from Kikkawa College.  Barb believes a thorough assessment is an important step to providing individualized and effective treatment.  Her skillful hands deliver a deep soft tissue massage enhanced with such techniques as myofascial and trigger point releases, joint mobilization, PNF stretching, neuromuscular therapy, manual lymph drainage and craniosacral therapy.


Over the years she has experience working and successfully treating clients who have recovered from surgery, sport injuries, chronic pain, frozen shoulder, spinal injuries, motor vehicle accidents, TMJ, headaches and many other conditions.

Barb continually works towards expanding her knowledge in order to provide her clients with the greatest level of care possible.  She believes massage therapy plays a key role in dealing with many of life’s stressors and is essential for long-term health and wellness.


Tim graduated from the University of Calgary in 2010 with his BSc in Mind Sciences in Kinesiology. During that time, he also pursued certification as a Certified Personal Trainer (CPT) through the Canadian Society of Exercise Physiology (CSEP). He has been working as a personal trainer since. Tim has been intrigued by massage therapy since he was in junior high. The opportunity to return to his interest in massage therapy in his adult years has been quite a blessing for him.

In 2016, Tim completed his 3000-hour massage therapy diploma in order to complement the work he was doing as a personal trainer. He believes that physical health is so dynamic that it requires multiple views and disciplines in order to bring about the best results for his clients.


He loves the concept of being part of a collaborative health team such as Innovative Sports Medicine, where all the facets of health can be approached and addressed in so many ways. Though having no formal training in dance, he enjoys dancing in his spare time and believes that dancing is a simple cure to feeling young. Tim also enjoys singing, hiking, indoor climbing, and photography.

Jo-Ella has been in practice since 2008. Jo-Ella has worked with clients of all ages from children up to seniors. Jo-Ella enjoys the challenge of treating different conditions, from the stressed office worker, to the injured athlete to pre and post-operative clients.


After having personal experience in receiving massage during and after four pregnancies, Jo-Ella was trained formally in prenatal massage and enjoys passing that experience and knowledge on to other moms-to-be. Jo-Ella completed training in Thai Mat Massage in December of 2015 and applies that knowledge to traditional table massage. A “homework” regime of stretching and strengthening exercises are a very important part of her treatment protocol.
