A little about Christopher
Hello and thank you for taking the time to visit my site! Allow me to tell you a bit about myself. I’m a fortunate guy in that I’m happy with my life, my wife, family, and my work. I try my best to spread that positivity and find massage therapy is a great outlet.
I’ve been a practicing RMT since graduating the 3000 hour Massage Therapy program at WCCMT Victoria in 2003. My career has provided me the opportunity to gain experience in physiotherapy and massage therapy clinics in Vancouver and now Courtenay, as well as the good fortune of being able to travel abroad and work in luxury spas. Spending over 20k plus hours of working with people one on one, massage therapy has offered me a deeper understanding of the value in human connection.
My clients will find me a well rounded practitioner, who is a great listener, conversationalist, and has a sense of humour.
I’m certainly guilty of having the gift of the gab and have had countless soulful conversations as well as laughs with clients. However, I’m also acutely aware of the value of comfortable silence when my clients just want to zone out and relax.
I see massage as a valuable tool for allowing clients to get back in touch with their body and enter that blissfully healing state between sleep and consciousness. Did you know you can actually snore face down while still being partially awake?? Indeed it is true…
I often get comments such as “I feel like I got a thorough deep tissue massage but was relaxed at the same time!” I believe flow and relaxation are an important part of clinical techniques.
My massage therapy services vary with the therapeutic goals of my clients. I incorporate a variety of deep tissue, Swedish, range of motion, stretching, and fascial techniques (such as the CoAT method), to coax stress and tension from the body. I blend these into a strong, yet relaxing flow for a good full body overhaul. For more injury-based treatments I will utilize whichever combination of techniques is appropriate. All treatments will be tailored to my client’s needs with a focus on educating and empowering them with exercises and home care. I aim to allow them to take charge of their own health and wellness.
I sort of love bees!

I do everything I can to ensure you receive the ultimate professional and caring experience.
I am currently accepting new clients into my practice and look forward to connect with you!
