The Change Diaries explores how to better embrace change, spark change or be the change we want to see

This conversation exploring Changing your body – it’s an inside job with Chris Delos Reyes, Registered Massage Therapist (RMT), takes us deeper into discussing the perils of looking back to be what we were decades ago. And haven’t we all been there, trying to chase the 8-minute mile instead of accepting it’s now a 12-minute jog at best?

Chris gives a realistic perspective on changing WITH your body and shares his own journey as a former professional dancer who is accepting the passage of time, honouring where he is now and listening to his body closely. Merging his expertise in massage therapy and holistic wellness with being a father of two – including a new-born, Chris reminds us that it’s important to reassess and re-evaluate your relationship with your body and take the approach of asking what it needs. Listen to this easy conversation with a soulful family man for relatable experiences along with reminders on how to best serve your body and maximize on the benefits of massage therapy.
