Kernby Chu, RMT

 

Tues, Wed, Thurs:  9:00am - 6:00pm

 

I decided to become a RMT in 2009. After 100,000 km of cycling, years of backpacking travel, dozens of ultimate frisbee teams, and numerous mountain sports, injuries and age caught up to me and I needed healthcare. A sunrise epiphany on the peak of the West Lion changed my life – I valued healing, so that’s what I wanted to nurture and spread in the world through massage therapy.

 

Since graduating WCCMT in 2011, I’ve worked in Vancouver, Nelson, and Victoria, gaining experience treating a wide variety of conditions including stress and tension, athletic performance, post-injury rehabilitation, motor vehicle accidents, chronic pain, and pregnancy. My approach is to create the optimal conditions for the body to heal itself – this can mean relaxation, myofascial release, deep tissue work, trigger point release, joint mobilizations, and retraining posture with strengthening, stretching, and proprioceptive exercises. What I love about my work is that it gives me the opportunity to practice compassion and empower people through education and inspiration.
