Massage Therapist Karin Boisclair-Joly

As a registered massage therapist, Karin (she/her) focuses on progressive, specific change for her patients in response to their goals.  Committed to patient-centered, gender-affirming care, Karin strives to offer unconditional positive regard so people feel they can bring their full selves into the treatment room.  Your appointment will include history-taking and assessment, hands-on treatment and discussion of home-care to extend the benefits of the massage.   Language will relate to anatomy, treatment and your health concerns.

Karin’s qualifications include a Bachelor of Science (Biology) from the University of Alberta and a diploma from the West Coast College of Massage Therapy (New Westminster).  Loving learning and sharing knowledge, Karin is happy to answer your questions as she is able.

Outside the clinic you’d probably find Karin up to her elbows in the garden, devouring a novel or a yummy meal, and generally rejoicing in this good green planet.  She dotes on her family and is grateful to be part of a wonderful community.  Karin se débrouille en français.

COVID 19 NOTICE

Update: March 11, 2022

Please note: The Provincial Government has removed the mask mandate for public spaces in BC.  Inside our clinic, we are requiring masks to be worn in common areas.  This is because a sizeable portion of our patients are elderly, immunocompromised, or in the highest risk levels.  Part of our responsibility as healthcare professionals is ensuring all patients have access to care – therefore we have a responsibility to ensure our environment is safe for everybody.  However, once you are inside a treatment room, masks can be taken off with mutual consent between a patient (yourself), and therapist.  This means if you want your therapist to wear a mask, they will.  If both you and your therapist would like to remove your masks, you may.  We think this is a compromise which can accommodate nearly everybody.

Just a reminder, despite COVID-19 cases declining in BC, there is still community transmission.  This means there is at least some risk of COVID-19 transmission at our clinic.

NEW: We have installed HEPA air purifiers inside each of our treatment rooms to further try to limit the spread of COVID-19.

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