Eric “E” Matias is an Athletic Performance Therapist, effectively integrating manual therapeutic methods and strength training principles to help people achieve their health and performance goals. After graduating from York University’s Kinesiology Program and the Athletic Therapy Certificate Program in 2013, Eric continued to pursue mastery in his craft. He went on to obtain his certificate as a Registered Massage Therapist, and completed McMaster’s Neurofunctional Acupuncture Program. Eric was working as the Head Therapist with professional and high-level teams, and achieving great results with his athletes through the combination of manual therapy, acupuncture, and exercise. Eager to learn more, he went on to complete McMaster Acupuncture’s Advanced Program. After that, he also spent some time in the Instructors Program, training to be an Instructor and honing his skills among some of the best practitioners.
Admittedly, Eric wishes he were the athlete. This rooted desire is what drives his passion, as he lives vicariously through his clients and helping them reach their goals. Throughout his career, he has remained consistent in the weight-room; learning from S&C Coaches, studying, and training as if he were preparing for competition. It only made sense that he also earn the title of Certified Strength & Conditioning Specialist and apply his knowledge and experience to training basketball athletes. He not only aims to help athletes with a fast recovery from injury, but strives to educate and empower them so they can reduce vulnerability to injury. This is achieved through specific and strategic training - catering to the individual’s goals, sport, injury history and any imbalances – so that they can move well and strong.
Eric began his own practice at his home-office in 2017, and has been fortunate to build a steady client base of elite athletes and active individuals completely through word-of-mouth referrals. To continue serving the dream chasers and go-getters, he had to recruit excellent practitioners to join in the mission. Thus, the CANT STOP Team came together through divine timing. To balance his passion for helping private clients and working team sports, Eric also works part-time at Humber College, where he provides care for the Varsity Teams. When not working, he is likely lifting weights, playing basketball, or spending time with friends and family.
