Massage Therapist Karin Boisclair-Joly

Karin delights in combining her knowledge of anatomy with the varied techniques of massage therapy to help create positive, specific change for her patients. A graduate of the West Coast College of Massage Therapy, Karin also has a Bachelor of Science (biology) from the University of Alberta. She has a deep love of learning and sharing her knowledge.  Karin is happy to answer your questions and looks forward to being part of your health journey.

Karin finds it a privilege to create therapeutic space for her diverse patients, identifying a specialized treatment plan and carefully choosing home-care to extend the benefits of the massage. An important part of massage therapy is working together so that patients can achieve their goals: it is important to feel good in one’s body and move in the ways one would like!

Karin loves being in her garden, eating great food, enthusiastically discussing books and movies, chasing birds with binoculars, identifying native plants and animals. She dabbles in quite a few things that she will never master but still pursues, like speaking French, baking bread, playing fiddle and painting. Karin parle français assez couramment.  She absolutely dotes on her family and is grateful to be part of a wonderful community.

Update: July 1, 2021

As the Province of BC enters Step 3 of the restart plan, things will mostly remain status quo at PhysioLife.  Changes are as follows:

  1. based on guidelines published by the College of Massage Therapists of BC, masks inside massage treatment rooms are no longer mandatory.  Masks do not need to be worn if and only if both patient and therapist mutually agree.  If you would like your therapist to wear a mask, they will.  If your therapist would like their patients to wear a mask, we kindly ask for your cooperation.  Masks must still be worn in all common areas of the clinic, so please keep bringing your masks!
  2. Our waiting room will be open on a limited basis (yay!)

All other COVID-19/communicable disease guidelines remain in place, and can be viewed on our website.  Our profession is governed by the College of Physical Therapists of BC and the College of Massage therapists of BC.  The rules and regulations passed down from these Colleges supersede any WorkSafeBC requirements which are imposed on the general population.  Therefore, we can only relax restrictions once our Colleges approve.  Our setting is a healthcare setting which is a high risk environment, even if masks are worn.  As the summer progresses, we hope to receive new guidance from our Colleges which will allow us to ease some of our other protocols.  However, we will only do so if we believe it will not interfere with the health and safety of our therapists, staff, and patients.

Thank you for your continued support.  We hope everyone stays healthy.
