Our Registered Massage Therapists

Kim Johnston RMT

Hi, I am Kim Johnston. I am a Registered Massage Therapist.                                             VID_4276

I became a Registered Massage Therapist in 2005 after completing a three year program at the Okanagan Valley College of Massage Therapy.  I have a strong interest in fitness and healthy living.  Through massage therapy, I help my clients move towards optimal health.  I use a range of techniques in my practice, treating
the muscles, fascia, and joints through myofascial therapy, deep tisue massage (which includes neuromuscular and triggerpoint therapies), joint play, manual stretching, and muscle energy techniques.  I
may give the client home care such as stretches, strength exercises, postural correction, or ice/heat treatments.  Pregnancy massage and sports massage are also areas of interest to me and we have special pregnancy pillows for lying in a supported face down position.
