(a) assessment of soft tissue and joints of the body, and
(b) treatment and prevention of physical dysfunction, injury, pain and disorders of soft tissue and joints of the body by manipulation, mobilization and other manual methods.
BC Registered Massage Therapists are extensively trained in assessing and treating many conditions and pathologies, including but not limited to the following:
Chelsea Murray, RMT
Chelsea graduated from a 3000-hour, two-year Massage Therapy Program at Okanagan College of Massage Therapy. Her style of treatment involves the use of a variety of assessment tools to find the root cause of the dysfunction. She then uses that knowledge to develop a course of treatment that is always patient centered.
Chelsea’s passion for preventative and rehabilitative therapy began by healing her own sport-related injuries. Her own drive to recover from sport-related injuries, combined with her education gives her a unique perspective treating:
- Sports injuries
- Surgical rehab
- Temporomandibular Joint (TMJ) dysfunction
- Carpal tunnel
- Peripheral nerve pathologies
Chelsea uses a variety of techniques including sports massage, deep tissue massage, myofascial release, therapeutic exercises, and self-care exercises to treat her patients. Self-care and therapeutic exercises are a very important part of her treatments as it increases the longevity of the results in the treatment room and can increase the length of time between appointments.
In her spare time you will see Chelsea playing volleyball, eating a lot of healthy food, and taking adventures around B.C. with her dog.
Donna Thorne, RMT/Owner
Donna graduated in 2012 from the 3-year Massage Therapy program at West Coast College of Massage Therapy (WCCMT). Donna is a treatment oriented therapist who provides a tailored approach by working with her patients, through discussion and assessment, to find and treat the root cause of the pain or dysfunction. She utilizes a combination of techniques to facilitate her patient’s return to optimal function and mobility.
Donna is experienced in treating patients with a wide variety of conditions, including athletic and overuse injuries, headaches and migraines, whiplash, tendinitis and chronic pain.
As a recreational hockey player and skier, Donna knows about injury rehabilitation and how to treat the misalignments that life brings. She has advanced training in fascial techniques and also worked as a Clinic Instructor for the RMT program at the Kelowna campus of Vancouver Career College.
Donna is pleased to offer direct billing to ICBC, plus most insurers for extended health plans.
Caroline Braun, RMT
Caroline is a graduate of the 2-year Registered Massage Therapy program at Vancouver Career College in Kelowna. Having worked in a behind the scenes capacity in health care for 10 years, Caroline decided to change careers so that she was taking a more proactive, hands on approach to both her career and her own health.
As someone who suffers from chronic headaches, Caroline found that massage had an incredible impact on both their occurrence and severity. Massage had such a profound impact in her life that she wanted to be able to share that with others. Through hands on time, education, and the importance of self-care using both therapeutic exercise and stretching, Caroline’s focus is to get her clients to be able to live their lives to the fullest with as little pain as possible.
In her free time, Caroline loves to spend time being creative, reading and walking with her dogs, exploring this beautiful valley we live in.
