Registered Massage Therapy


All of our practitioners are registered with the College of Massage Therapists of BC, and therefore carry the title of Registered Massage Therapists. That said, they are trained in various modalities, approaches and techniques.

Which massage therapy technique is best for you?

Do you prefer a massage with or without oil? Do you like slow and relaxing treatments or a faster, sports style massage? Are you injured? Stressed? Pregnant? We’ve got you covered. Our Registered Massage Therapists will work with you to find out what style of massage and treatment plan work best for you.
