Jordan R. Smith has been a practicing member of MTAS since graduating from the McKay Massage and Hydrotherapy Program in 2011. Aside from evolving his private practice, Jordan began much of his career teaching Anatomy, Systemic Anatomy and Physiology to massage therapy students. In 2014, Jordan was elected to the Board of Directors of MTAS (Massage Therapy Association of Saskatchewan). He continues to be active within the sub-committees to further the advancement and benefits of Public Knowledge and Massage Therapy in Saskatchewan.

To further his passion of Anatomy, Jordan facilitates the Cadaver Labs held at the University of Saskatchewan. This creates an immersive learning environment where MTAS members can deepen their understanding of human anatomy.

Today, Jordan focuses his work around the John F. Barnes' Myofascial Release Approach®. Myofascial Release Therapy (MFR) is a gentle hands-on treatment that gradually softens, lengthens, and realigns your fascia to promote healing and relieve pain. It Is an effective treatment for unexplained spinal, muscle and joint pain, and other complex conditions with multiple symptoms of pain and dysfunction. The fascial system is a 3D web of connective tissue that spreads throughout the body from head to toe. It is what holds us together and gives us shape. Trauma, poor posture and inflammation can cause restrictions in the fascial system that bind down like a straightjacket on pain sensitive structures like nerves, muscles, blood vessels, bones and organs. Myofascial Release Therapy (MFR) has uncovered the cause of most pain and dysfunction that is invisible to standard medical tests.

Since having received training from John F. Barnes’ himself, Jordan has discovered that Myofascial Release has done more to support healing and improve movement ability in his clients than any other therapy technique. Jordan works throughout the year to continually advance his skill set to keep up with the ever evolving needs of patient care and to bring those skills into a the treatment room with each and everyone he sees. With this skill set, he focuses on the causes of your current symptoms, rather than the symptom itself to create a lasting effect and relief. In the words of John F Barnes, "Begin with the area of pain and look elsewhere for the cause."


Jordan’s clients range from young infants to the elderly (all varying in conditions, including lower back pain, fibromyalgia, acute/chronic injuries, carpal tunnel, TMJ, headaches, whiplash, postural dysfunction, pelvic imbalances, neurological conditions, scars, sciatica and sport injuries). Jordan is very passionate about his patients’ health and places a strong emphasis on individualized education about the body and self-care recommendations such as stretching, strengthening and postural awareness.
