  • Clients who provide less than 48 hours notice, or who miss their appointment, will be charged the full appointment fee. This fee cannot be billed to insurance providers.

  • For last minute illness/covid related issues restricting in-person attendance, where possible we will switch to a virtual visit to continue your care.

What I bring to the floor

My time in education-centred and coaching roles have given me a lot of experience communicating complex ideas to clients in a digestible format and providing support throughout both the physical and mental challenges of rehab.

A little backstory

I was born and raised in the Tri-Cities where I found no shortage of sports to participate in and very quickly found a passion for martial arts. I practiced Taekwondo for 14 years, coached for 10 years, and competed and refereed provincially for several years as well. My experiences as a coach and athlete sparked my interest in teaching, exercise, and helping others; it put me on the path towards Kinesiology and the rehabilitation sciences.

Outside the clinic

Outside the clinic you can find me practicing martial arts, running, hiking, indoor rock climbing, or in the gym lifting heavy things and putting them down. You could also find me baking, attending live shows, binging Netflix, or searching Vancouver for the best cafes. Its all about balance!

What I bring to my treatment

I will bring my sense of empathy, kindness, and inclusiveness. I will provide a safe and non-judgmental space for you to learn about yourself, explore your challenges, and pursue your goals. Some of the approaches and modalities I choose from in my work with you include; Acceptance Commitment Therapy, Somatic, mindfulness, and cognitive behavioral therapy.

A little backstory

I was born and raised in Iran and immigrated to Canada in 2005. Immigrating to Canada impacted me as a person, and made me interested in human resiliency, loss, grief, race, cultural differences, feminism, and self-discovery. In addition, being a parent taught me that self-love, self-compassion, and self-respect are crucial in how I connect with my child. These major life experiences and my self-awareness are helping me when I am present with my client’s self-discovery.

Outside the clinic

I love spending time with my child, reading, walking, and going to the bookstore. I am also a marathon runner; I love exploring new running paths every day.

What I bring to the floor

The experience that I bring forth consists of working in a variety of different settings with a diverse range of individuals including people with developmental disabilities, individuals diagnosed hematological cancers, and youth athletes.

I’ve previously worked with the Developmental Disabilities Association and the Leukemia/Bone Marrow Transplant Program of BC where I provided instruction on performing exercises. I am also currently volunteering as a volleyball coach for the Ducks Volleyball Club where I am helping youth athletes achieve their individual and team performance goals.

A little backstory

I was born in Comox on Vancouver Island, but raised in the Tri-Cities where I competed in a number of different sports. I eventually narrowed my focus to beach and indoor volleyball which led me to representing Canada at the 19U Worlds Beach Volleyball Worlds and joining the varsity volleyball team at UBCO.

My desire to achieve my optimal level of performance in volleyball quickly developed into a passion for helping others pursue their optimal level of performance with respect to their own health and fitness goals.

Outside the clinic

You can often find me at volleyball tournaments coaching, at the beach competing as an athlete in volleyball tournaments in the summer, or watching the latest Canucks game/highlights. Go Canucks Go!

What I bring to the training floor

My experience being a yoga student and teacher has taught me about how movement and connection with the body and breath can bring people peace. I’m so excited to combine my education and knowledge of the human body with my passion of caring for others into my own kinesiology practice.

A little backstory

I grew up in a small town near Calgary, Alberta, and spent most of my younger days playing various sports and nursing various injuries. I was a classic high school jock so It was only natural for me to continue my education in kinesiology. There I found my passion for helping people find body awareness and healing through movement.

Outside of the clinic you can find me at the yoga studio, catching a live music show, or heading up to Whistler for a powder day. On the other hand, I’m totally guilty of binge watching an entire series on Netflix within a couple days 🤷🏼‍♀️

What I bring to the table

Being an instructor of acupuncture and Traditional Chinese Medicine, I hold great value in educating my clients in ways that will be helpful and empowering to them to achieve their unique goals. I practice with a broad range of tools built on a strong foundation of classical training, to ensure optimal methods are applied to each client’s unique concerns.

A little backstory

In May 2022, my wife and I travelled to Nepal for six weeks to volunteer as practitioners and educators for the Acupuncture Relief Project. This involved living and practicing in a small local community, where we had the opportunity to treat complex health conditions such as stroke rehabilitation, and teach new methods of treatment to local acupuncturists at the regional health post.

Outside of the clinic

I thrive on maximum productivity, balanced by adventures in the outdoors with my wife who also practices acupuncture and Chinese Medicine. I enjoy cycling the seawall, learning languages, building online courses, studying new acupuncture and TCM methods, having picnics in the sun, and connecting to local businesses at weekend markets.

What I bring to the table

I provide an active and research-based approach to rehabilitation by promoting tailored exercises that fit your needs but with an understanding that using hands-on skills and a more passive approach is beneficial. My active approach developed by providing care for elite athletes: from CFL players to EuroLeague Pro Basketball players. This approach was further developed by working with stroke and brain injury patients at the Riverview Health Centre in Winnipeg, where I enjoyed providing specialized exercise and instruction to those that need it most. My 9+ years of experience as a lifeguard and swimming instructor helped me develop strong observational and instructional skills through working with a variety of populations; from children with disabilities to adults with aquaphobia.

A little backstory

Originally from Winnipeg, MB; I grew up in a diverse neighborhood surrounded by friends from all walks of life. I immersed myself in a variety of sports growing up which kickstarted my love of fitness. I was the kid in high school who hit the gym during lunch hours and enjoyed sharing this space with friends. I moved to BC in November 2021 because of the potential to enjoy the city life, the outdoors, and to meet new people.

Outside the clinic

You’ll find me exploring the big city; site-seeing, searching for new places to eat, and new craft beers to drink. If not in the city, I’ll be exploring what nature has to offer; hiking, camping, and swimming in the ocean. Whichever the setting, I love to be surrounded by friends and enjoy meeting new people, or whoever else will listen to my jokes..

What I bring to the table

My passion for learning and my in-depth knowledge of human anatomy and surgical procedures. In my journey to physiotherapy I first completed a Master of Science in Clinical Anatomy where I conducted research with orthopaedic surgeons looking at a variety of surgical approaches.

I then moved to Chicago to teach cadaver dissection at UIC where I still work as a faculty member teaching anatomy remotely. Since completing my physiotherapy training I’ve had the opportunity to work with a variety of individuals, from weekend-warriors, clients with neurological impairments, and of course, many post-surgical patients.

A little backstory

I was born and raised in South Burnaby and played high level soccer for 18 years. I suffered a major knee injury that required 3 surgeries, and as is often the case for physios, I had such admiration for my own personal physiotherapist that I wanted to get involved in the profession and give back in the same way my physio had done for me.

Outside the clinic

When I’m not working at the clinic you can find me lecturing at different universities, out for a bike ride on the seawall, swimming in one of the amazing lakes around BC, or exploring some of Vancouver’s best eats/local craft breweries; I’m a self-proclaimed craft beer aficionado.

After working as a personal trainer for 4 years, I have experience with training collegiate level athletes and weekend warriors. Based on my musculoskeletal treatment background, I specialize in treating work-related injuries and motor vehicle accidents.

I have completed advanced manual therapy courses that allows me to effectively treat the neck, shoulder, upper and lower back.

Furthermore, I can provide physiotherapy services in Chinese, French and English.

A little backstory

As a born and raised South-Vancouver Chinese kid, I grew up occasionally practicing martial arts, swimming lessons and being forced to take piano lessons.

I was very skinny and un-athletic in high school, and I knew I had to do more for my fitness. In my first year of university, I began to lift weights at the gym and it soon grew into a burning passion for exercise. I was studying Kinesiology at the time, and it made sense to combine my passion for health and fitness into a profession.

Physiotherapy was a natural progression, because I really enjoy learning about the human body, and I have always wanted to help others in my community!

Outside the clinic

You can find me almost living at the gym, as it is one of my favourite hobbies. I competed in my first powerlifting competition in 2015, where I won first place in the BCPA Winter Open Bench Press.

I am always training, and I hope to compete again in the future. Outside of the gym, I am starting to play volleyball, and I am also playing in a multi-sport league with my church team.

I enjoy seeking new experiences, and I am hoping to try different sports and outdoor activities this year!

What I bring to the table

I was always intrigued by movement, nutrition, and the capability of the human body growing up as an athlete. I empower my patients to take control of their health through informed choices based on education of the root causes of their conditions and their internal profiles. In partnership with my patients, we work together to achieve meaningful results.

A little backstory

I grew up on the west coast in North Vancouver with the mountains, mossy forest and rainy days. However, I spent most of my days in an ice rink. I competed at the Canadian National Figure Skating Championships in Ice Dance from 2011 to 2013 but my skating career ended due to chronic groin and low back injury which would alter my life after sport. I struggled to walk, sleep, and do every day activities. Three years later, I ended up in a naturopathic doctors office to work on treating the root cause of my pain. I was so inspired by naturopathic medicine and all it had to offer that I applied to become a naturopathic doctor myself.

Outside the clinic

As a nature lover, I feel most at home hiking in the woods and spending time near the ocean. You may also find me hanging upside down dabbling in acroyoga. Except for Sundays, I will be at the farmers market, buying organic and local ingredients.

What I bring to the table

I’m a graduate of the Vancouver College of Massage Therapy program and prior to this, I had over a decade of experience working as a Shiatsu Therapist and as a residential care aid for adults with development disabilities and mental health conditions. Both of these skills and experiences complemenet my massage therapy. My proficiencies include a variety of corrective techniques, among which include myofascial, neuromuscular, IASTM, and joint mobilizations.

A little backstory

As a life long Vancouverite, I understood early on that helping others was something I enjoyed and connected with. While I thought that counselling was my calling (majored in psychology at SFU), I soon realized that I had more confidence in supporting people with my hands than with my words.

Outside the clinic

When I’m not out admiring or creating collage art, you can find me walking my dog around the neighbourhood or nearest park, enjoying some bougie tea (self-proclaimed tea snob) or learning my next new skill (Youtube self taught crocheter).

What I bring to the table

My willingness to teach and my reluctance to stop learning. I love what I do. I believe that our profession can only grow if we put the effort into growing ourselves. I am a clinical educator and mentor for the UBC program. And whether it was my experience with university/ professional athletes, the Olympics, or le Cirque du Soleil, I have used every opportunity to learn and grow as a therapist, and I am always happy to share that experience and expertise to any and all who need it.

A little backstory

I was 11 years old playing competitive hockey when I first damaged my knee. I remember going to Physio and doing exercises and saying to myself: “This job is awesome, this is what I want to do”. That determination led me half way around the world to UQ, one of the foremost leaders in physiotherapy. That drive continued, opening doors at the 2010 Olympic Games and later in the medical department for Le Cirque du Soleil. Ive taken that drive and experience and continue to improve myself everyday, more recently by completing my Fellowship in the field of clinical orthopaedics.

Outside of the clinic

As I have gotten older, I’ve started to spend less time training in the gym and early morning skates and more time working out chasing my kids around. Less balancing on Swiss balls and more balancing life. Don’t get me wrong, that feeling of skates cutting into a fresh sheet of ice still gives me goose bumps, but I now have a different goal in life and I am putting all that fire towards them.

A little backstory

I was born in Trinidad and spent much of my childhood living the Caribbean dream before my parents decided to relocate to Toronto (Scarborough). Those early years of playing and discovering the outdoors has stayed with me throughout my life and, to this day, I am an active athlete who enjoys much of the outdoors.

Outside the clinic

You can find me playing Ultimate frisbee, keeping my 2-year-old Doodle from eating my cat (and vice versa), and photographing local wildlife!

As part of my studies at the Vancouver College of Massage Therapy (VCMT), I was a student intern at the VCMT clinic and finished 550 hours of internship. I’ve had a chance to work with a wide range of individuals that suffer from various issues such as acute and chronic musculoskeletal pain, limitations in mobility and headaches.

A little backstory

I was born and grew up in the Philippines and I moved to Vancouver in 2016. I’ve loved the city ever since. I first thought of working in the field of rehabilitation after volunteering at Sunny Hill Health Centre, a rehabilitation centre for children. I saw firsthand how much it meant for the patients to be able to regain functional mobility and it made me want to be a part of their journey to wellbeing. I chose to study massage because I’m able to be 100% hands on with my patients and help them achieve their treatment goals.

Outside the clinic

Whenever it’s sunny and warm outside, I like going to the mountains and checking out new hiking trails. If it’s cold and raining, I’ll be training at the gym for boxing, kickboxing and occasionally BJJ. And when I’m feeling lazy, I’ll plop myself on the couch and binge watch my favourite movies or TV series.

A little backstory

I was born in Toronto and lived in Ontario for most of my life. I completed a Bachelor of Arts in Kinesiology and a Certification from York University in 2015. Two years later, I wanted to expand my skills further and finished a Diploma of Massage Therapy from the Ontario College of Health and Technology. Four years ago, I left the Toronto area and now call New Westminster my home.

Outside the clinic

You can catch my outside playing tennis or walking my dog Alfie or inside trying out a new recipe, playing a video game or yelling at the tv when Arsenal FC are playing. I also enjoy being out on the water with my paddle board, exploring new places to eat and pre-pandemic, backpacking!

A little backstory

I fell in love with Vancouver when I first visited many years ago and decided to move here to enjoy the seawall and mild weather. Luckily, I was introduced to a Traditional Chinese medicine doctor in my local community who encouraged me and led me to continue my passion for acupuncture and herbal medicine, following the footsteps of my beloved grandfather.

Combining both my experience and passion for this modality allows me to be an effective registered massage therapist to guide you through the rehabilitation process, whether you’re an athlete or not.

I’ve been personally mentored by some of the leading physiotherapists’ in musculoskeletal, sport, orthopaedic and occupation physiotherapy.

A little backstory

Being born in the Philippines and raised in both Abu Dhabi and Canada gave me many opportunities to be involved in various sports (volleyball, track, and ultimate frisbee). This carried through in my adult years as I went to work with athletes in the VUL (Vancouver Ultimate League), the Crossfit Games and the Lululemon marthon.

Outside the clinic

When not in the clinic, I like to to spend time with friends and family. I enjoy most types of media entertainment: manga, movies, musicals, basically anything with a plot! You can also find me outdoors playing ultimate frisbee and beach or indoor volleyball.

I want to give my clients knowledge of their body anatomy, educate on proper biomechanics and encourage safe exercise through proper warm ups, core stabilization and sweaty circuit training.

A little backstory

Being a true Canadian born & raised in North Vancouver, I spent many mornings in a cold yet freshly zambonied ice rink. I competed at three national figure skating championships and obtained a B.Sc degree in Biomedical Physiology (basically a lot of science about the human body and how it moves). My athletic & academic background inspired my love of teaching proper exercise technique and creating fun yet sweaty workouts.

My humanity, my deep care for you and for meeting you where you are, my commitment to supporting, advocating for, and honouring you in your explorations and reclamations, as well as everything my body and I have learned and continue to learn from navigating healing and the healing process in relationship and in community.

Some of the approaches and modalities I draw from in my collaboration with you include: somatic, expressive arts, intersectional feminist, animist, narrative, internal family systems, mindfulness, and cognitive behavioural. I am purposeful in integrating rituals in the therapeutic context, especially when accompanying you in your explorations of intergenerational and ancestral healing.

A little backstory

My ancestral name is 棠棠 Tangtang (pronounced as t-ong t-ong), given to me by my great grandfather to mean crabapple blossoms. My ancestral lineages and lands — their histories, realities, and ongoing complexities — continue to inform my learning, unlearning, and relearning in life and in relationships, and as an uninvited settler living on the traditional, ancestral, and stolen Coast Salish territories, including the xʷməθkʷəy̓əm (Musqueam), Skwxwú7mesh (Squamish), and səlil̓ilw̓ətaʔɬ (Tsleil-Waututh) Nations.

Outside the clinic

I grow vegetables and give my house plants names, love cooking soups and stews, enjoy discovering nooks and crannies of the world on my bicycle, and will always stop to pet a cat, make art, share food, play a board game, or listen to a story.

What I bring to the table

I have a strong background in exercise prescription and sport specific training. This background comes from a 3 year strength & conditioning internship I had while at Queen’s University, where I worked with varsity athletes developing, planning and implementing their strength & conditioning programs. I believe that exercise & movement is a great tool not only for sport specific goals and injury rehab, but also as a means to create a higher quality of life and improve wellness throughout your lifespan. I am always on the lookout for new ways to challenge myself, and my clients, through exercise and strength based movements.

A little backstory

I grew up in the small town of Haliburton, Ontario and moved out to the west coast in 2020. My love for the mountains grew after I spent 3 summers living in the beautiful mountain town of Banff, Alberta, where you could find me hiking, camping, and exploring the backcountry of the Rocky Mountains. I love a wide array of sports and activities and have kept busy over the years playing and competing in field hockey, volleyball, track & field, 3 types of skiing (downhill, cross country and water skiing), running and swimming to name a few! When I was not in school, playing sports, or in the mountains, I was travelling – I absolutely love it and have been to over 30 countries! I continue to enjoy exploring and immersing myself in different cultures, as it really gets me out of my comfort zone and challenges the way I think.

Outside of the clinic

You can find me outside – hiking, camping, exploring the backcountry, running the Seawall, and in the winter, downhill or cross country skiing! I also spend a ton of time at the gym, at the spin studio, and perfecting my Pilates techniques. I am constantly striving to be a better athlete, and am currently training for my first Ironman.

I lasted about 2 years before missing the fun of working on a multi-disciplinary team and the challenge of rehab cases. So I made the leap and moved to beautiful BC!

Outside the clinic

I’ll be enjoying the gorgeous landscape hiking, singing badly and loudly, and playing my fiddle.
