Jordan Wearing, RMT

Jordan graduated from the West Coast College of Massage Therapy in 2012. She is trained to work with a wide variety of clientele using techniques such as myofascial and trigger point release, active release therapy, and Swedish massage. These can help with a variety of injuries, as well as overall stress and tension. As an avid sports fan (Go Canucks!) she has many experiences working with athletes of all ages and has a strong skill set in athletic massage.

Karin Boisclair-Joly, B.Sc., RMT

Karin delights in combining her knowledge of anatomy with the varied techniques of massage therapy to help create positive, specific change for her patients. A graduate of the West Coast College of Massage Therapy who will certify as an RMT in the fall of 2019, Karin also has a Bachelor of Science (biology) from the University of Alberta and a deep love of learning.

She finds it a privilege to create therapeutic space for her diverse patients, identifying a specialized treatment plan with carefully chosen home-care to extend the benefits of the massage. An important part of massage therapy is working together with patients so they can achieve their goals: it is important to feel good in one’s body and move in the ways one would like!

As a student therapist until completion of the CMTBC board exams, Karin will offer relaxation massage. She is happy to answer your questions and looks forward to being part of your health journey.

Karin loves being in her garden, eating great food, enthusiastically discussing books and movies, chasing birds with binoculars, identifying native plants and animals, and generally dabbling in quite a few things that she will never master but still pursues, like speaking French, baking bread, playing fiddle and painting. Karin parle français assez couramment. She absolutely dotes on her family and is grateful to be part of a wonderful community.

David is a recent graduate from West Coast College of massage therapy. Raised in Cloverdale and a lifelong resident of the lower mainland, David lives in Steveston with his wife and three boys. He was introduced to this profession by his wife, who herself is a RMT, because of his innate drive to help other. David is a caring and compassionate person that is passionate about making his life and the lives of other better.

David is a dedicated family man and enjoys living an active and healthy lifestyle with his family. Like most people raised in the lower mainland, he enjoys his outdoor activities, e.g. hiking, biking, paddle boarding, and played and coached both hockey and football.
