Massage Therapy

In addition to Physiotherapy, our clinic offers registered massage therapy (RMT).  While massage therapy is an outstanding complement to physiotherapy, it is also commonly done on its own.

Patients call looking for experienced massage therapists to treat a myriad of conditions, while getting tangible results.  Our therapists have extensive experience treating, and getting results, for thousands of patients.  The most common conditions seen are sports injuries, nagging back or neck pain, tension headaches, injuries from a car accident, or those wanting a relaxation massage.  In addition, our therapists have the right treatment beds and body cushions to massage patients in a variety of positions.  This is important for patients not comfortable laying on their back of stomach, for example,  pregnant women.

All massages done at PhysioLife are from “Registered” Massage Therapists (RMT’s).  This means: (1) your treatment is performed by therapists with the highest credentials in the profession – all of whom have completed considerable schooling and passed rigorous exams; (2) All our RMT’s are members of the College of Massage Therapists of British Columbia; and (3), extended health benefits typically only cover treatments by Registered Massage Therapists.

If you’re looking for a specific type of massage, give us a call and one of our RMT’s will be happy to discuss your particular needs with you.  We’re confident we can help.

COVID 19 NOTICE

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.
