Dr. Richard Nahas is a medical doctor who has had a lifelong passion for peak performance. He graduated from the University of Toronto and worked as an ER physician until a two-year sabbatical spent studying traditional medicine while backpacking around the world.
He practiced integrative medicine with a focus on pain management, using an approach that combines drugs, injections, natural health products, acupuncture, manual therapy, mind-body techniques, nutrition and exercise to treat patients who have failed conventional treatment. He published textbook chapters, peer-reviewed journal articles and national treatment guidelines. He participated in international clinical trials and has been an invited speaker at medical conferences worldwide.
His career path shifted when he discovered blockages and other aspects of healing that are unknown to modern medicine. The Seekers Method was originally developed as a treatment system that healthcare providers could use to treat chronic disease. Limited by the restrictions imposed by regulatory bodies and the skepticism of the medical establishment, he developed the Seekers Method Workout as a tool to empower unregulated providers to help athletes and regular people achieve peak performance.
