I graduated from West Coast College of Massage Therapy the end of 2008, attained my licence and began my practice in March 2009. Through the years I have developed my skills in myo-fascial release, trigger point therapy, deep tissue, joint mobilization and general Swedish incorporating a variety of techniques as required. My scope of practice spans from specific injury or pathology such as sprains, strains and migraines to general stress relief. After two years of practicing I was employed by West Coast as an assistant instructor along with the position as Clinic Supervisor. More recently I have been employed by Langara College in their RMT program as primary instructor for Orthopaedics and also as a Clinic Supervisor.

Rob is a Registered Massage Therapist who successfully completed the 2300 hour program at the Vancouver College of Massage Therapy (VCMT) in 2015. In his work Rob focuses on releasing soft tissue restrictions, which allows for greater tissue mobility and flexibility. Rob’s goal in treatment is to provide personalized care based on the patient’s individual needs, and to assist them in achieving optimal health and function. Rob encourages his clients to be proactive in their healing process by educating them and customizing a home care regime that may include stretching, strengthening and remedial exercises to facilitate the recovery process. Rob understands the importance of treating each new client as a whole person and he loves the challenge of uncovering the root of dysfunction or pain, rather than simply treating symptomatically. In his treatments he uses a combination of relaxation techniques, joint mobilizations and deep tissue massage, fascial work, muscle energy technique, trigger point therapy and passive and active movement in order to reduce pain, increase function and increase overall well-being. He is well versed in a multitude of musculoskeletal and systemic conditions; however, he is particularly interested in treating chronic neck and low-back pain, tension headaches and stress and anxiety.
