Majorie Lauzon

Your Physical Intelligence Expert

What truly distinguishes Majo is her incredible attention to detail, along with her high level of demand and determination, to make you work harder and ensure you attain your absolute best results.

Majo has over 20 years of experience in the fitness & sport industries, and her diversified background give her a well-rounded understanding of the mechanics of the human body.

Majo earned her B.Sc. in Physical Education & Exercise Science from University of Montreal in 1996 and is a Practicing Kinesiologist with the British Columbia Association of Kinesiologists (BCAK) and the Canadian Kinesiology Alliance (CKA).   

While growing up in Quebec, Majo competed provincially in artistic gymnastics, and then served the sport coaching young elite talent and judging competitions.  Since 2010, Majo’s main athletic goal is to stay fit through cross-country mountain bike racing throughout British Columbia.

Since 1989, Majo has been an alpine ski instructor in Quebec, British Columbia (Silver Star and Whistler-Blackcomb), Australia and New Zealand; and has trained hundreds of fitness enthusiasts in Quebec, Morroco, and British Columbia (Whistler and Vernon).

In 2010, Majo achieved the top Canadian ski instructor certification, the Canadian Ski Instructor Alliance (CSIA) level 4.  From 2007 to 2011, Majo has been working primarily at a physical rehabilitation clinic in Vernon, serving individuals recovering from motor vehicle accidents. Today, Majo dedicates primarily her time to helping and coaching athletes of all levels toward their physical and sport specific conditioning goals, in Pemberton, Squamish and Whistler. 

Since 2009, Majo has been training in different manipulative therapy techniques, such as Myofascial Release, Acive Isolated Stretching, Soft Tissue Release, Fascial Stretch Therapy™ and NeuroKinetic Therapy™ to help her clients obtain optimum muscle and fascia health, flexibility & strength.

Ten years of elite racing in ultra-endurance competitions and three years of pushing through chronic Achilles tendonitis issue has recently forced a full step back from running until I return to health and pain free movement.  In order to get through the Leadville 100 mile ultra marathon this past August 2012, I was fortunate to come across the services offered by Majorie Lauzon.  I believe weekly combined treatments of Myofascial Release (MFR), Soft Tissue Release (STR) and Fascial Stretch Therapy™ (FST™) have contributed to improvements in both overall flexibility and the decrease in acute pain at the Achilles attachment site.

Like many athletes, I lack good range of movement and have extremely tight muscles.  I've changed my movement patterns to compensate for the inability to move properly and continued to worsen things when I didn't stop running when I initially hurt my Achilles.  I feel as though my entire body from my feet up, even through the chest area, is locked up, stiff, inflexible, as I've struggled to keep training and racing.

Up until that race in August, I was in "maintenance" mode as Majo worked to just keep me moving. I had instant pain relief from the treatments she was giving me.  As such, I would feel better and have some point specific Achilles relief so what would I go and do?  Run.  And this would return me to square one, aggravating my Achilles, making it sore and painful to walk and stiff to get out of bed in the morning. It was a cyclical pattern due to my own personal drive to run and not rest.

I feel that one of the most effective aspects of the therapy has been the MFR and STR.  It has been great for releasing the tight muscles and fascia around my calves and hence, providing relief to the Achilles, but I understand the release come a lot from addressing the body as a whole as FST™ as done so well, lengthening all parts of my body interconnecting together.  I always feel great directly after receiving the combination of treatments and again the following day.  The pain would return though during or after my training sessions.  With regular treatments, I can comment to the fact that I was able to get through some of my longer training runs up to approximately the 2 hour mark, before the Achilles pain would really set in, as of before starting the treatments the pain would occur right at the start.

I am on rest now and am not training or racing until I am pain free.  With continued MFR, STR and FST™ treatments, I believe my forward progress toward healthy Achilles tendons will be much faster.
