Registered Massage Therapists in Vancouver
Alexander – RMT
Alexander has been a Registered Massage Therapist for several years and has experience in a wide range of treatment styles. He is well versed in both relaxation treatments as well as more specific therapeutic treatments, which may include the development of a treatment plan and home care routines, depending on the needs of the patient. Alexander’s treatments may include Swedish and deep tissue massage, Myofascial release, joint mobilization, muscle energy techniques, circulatory work (to improve blood circulation and drainage), therapeutic stretches (including PNF) and cranio-sacral therapy. He has extensive experience treating the aches and strains that come from the all day posture of sitting at the desk or at the computer.
With his recent pursuit of a degree in Osteopathy, Alexander has a deeper appreciation for the interconnection within the body as a whole and applies this to his Massage Therapy treatments. The principles of osteopathic medicine emphasize the interrelationship between structure and function of the body and recognize the body’s ability to heal itself.
Alexander enjoys the reward of helping people feel their best and seeing them improve. Let him help you feel better today!
Chris Angerer – RMT
His first experience with massage was when he was six years old and his dad asked him to massage his low back after a golf game. After that there was no turning back, Chris was massaging friends after sports, long days, or whenever anyone asked.
In 1982, Chris Started taking Chito-ryu Karate and earned his black belt in 1988. Traditional Karate develops a heightened state of body awareness and appreciation for what the body can do. This is an advantage that allows Chris to have a greater awareness of dysfunctions and injuries in other people through massage.
Being a “people” person, Chris will greet you with a friendly smile and make you feel at ease right away. During your first visit, Chris will listen to you and find out exactly what you are feeling. He will then assess you to find the root cause, this may involve some testing of your posture, strength and pain free range of motion. After this, he will tell you his treatment plan and then begin the massage. During the massage therapy treatment, feed back about the massage, pressure or any questions are welcome.
