About Nick Hannah:

Nick is physiotherapist in London, ON deeply passionate about practice skills. 

You may know Nick from his online healthcare platform @hannahmoves (yes, he is a Canadian celebrity) where he regularly publishes content about clinical practice, health, pain and life in general. Nick is no stranger to ruffling feathers online and will happily defend what he values and views as most important to clinical life.

Most recently he launched an 8-week clinical mentorship called Communic8 to explore his passions of education in service of his profession.

Outside the clinic, Nick loves cooking, fishing and training. Increasingly so he concerns himself more with activities of being, rather than doing. He knows life is super short: so laugh loud, love hard and stop taking everything so damn seriously.
