Welcome to my clinic. My name is Brian Fulton. I graduated from Alexandrian Institute’s Massage Therapy program in Hamilton with Honours in 1999 and have practiced massage therapy in Niagara ever since. In my twenty years plus of practice I have developed a broad range of experience treating soft tissue pain and dysfunction. My post-graduate education includes Ergonomic Evaluation, Myofascial Release, British Sports Therapy Soft Tissue Release, Ultrasound Therapy Certification, Interferential Current Therapy Certification, and Level 2 Systemic Interactive Medicine.
My post-graduate training includes Soft Tissue Release, an advanced therapy originally used for treating sports injuries that is now used to treat many types of soft tissue injuries and pain. I also have a special focus on repetitive strain injury treatment and Ergonomics (the study of workplace set-up). This makes me well qualified to get you back in the game or back to work as soon as possible.
Lifetime learning has always been a passion for me. In addition to my Massage Therapy career, I am also a health educator, having conducted seminars and various aspects of wellness to professional and corporate groups. Writing is another passion of mine. For over ten years I was the health columnist at the Dalhousie Peer Magazine. During that time we published over a hundred health articles on a wide array of topics. In 2015 I published a book published on the topic of manual therapy for other health practitioners.
Massage Therapy has been a three-decade passion of mine, having served on the Board of Directors of the Registered Massage Therapists Association of Ontario (RMTAO) and well as being involved in our local Massage Therapists network. I am an active member of the College of Massage Therapists of Ontario (CMTO) as well as the Registered Massage Therapists Association of Ontario.

My clinic is located at 5 Colbey Street, St. Catharines, ON. The setup is very professional yet also very warm and inviting. The clinic is an addition on to my home with it’s own separate entrance right off of the driveway. There is ample parking as I only treat one patient at a time. You are welcome to park in my driveway behind my car, or you can park in the extra parking spot on the double-wide portion of the driveway.
My office is cozy, but it it is large enough to allow for a few extra people in case someone is driving you. There is lots of literature to read in case you arrive early, and there is a washroom is located directly off of the office. The treatment room, like the whole clinic is modern, warm and relaxing. You can stretch out on the table and leave the worries of the world behind for an hour while you are getting a rejuvenating massage, whether therapeutic, deep, or relaxing.Parking is available in the driveway and along Colbey Street.
