Rahim's Approach to Massage Therapy

Our therapeutic relationship is deeply grounded on the premise that body and mind are inseparable.  We work together to incorporate all aspects of what make you, you; this includes mental, emotional, physical & spiritual well-being, lifestyle choices & habits, previous experiences, and all other elements that contribute to your overall health.  Each treatment is intentionally curated so we can work synergistically to initiate and/or experience an optimal state

Breaking Old Patterns

Daily patterns & habits, stress, injuries, traumatic experiences, surgeries, genetic attributes, health conditions and a host of other factors, can lead to symptoms of physical or emotional discomfort, restrictions and eventually dysfunction & dysregulation within our body.  The moment you realize your body is demanding your attention and asking for intervention, is the moment you begin to break patterns and embark on your personal journey towards repair, restoration and wellness.

What To Expect

Our primary intentions during each session are to:

  • slow down, tune in and pay attention to any discomfort arising from physical or emotional symptoms

  • gradually train the conscious mind to regain control over automatic reactions to symptoms using breathwork & mindful awareness

  • guide your body's inner intelligence to develop different, healthier responses to old symptoms, patterns and other external stimuli 

Since lotions or oils are not used during treatment, most patients remained fully clothed so comfortable clothing is necessary for your session.  You may bring clothes to change into before treatment, preferably loose fitting or stretchy pants/tights; long or short t-shirt, tank-top or sports bra - NO JEANS PLEASE!  With your permission, I may apply a therapeutic salve, lotion or oil to specific areas for specified symptom relief.

What is Registered Massage Therapy?

Massage Therapy is a regulated healthcare profession in British Columbia and several provinces in Canada, and those who practice Massage Therapy must complete two years of training and pass provincial board exams to earn the title Registered Massage Therapist (RMT).

RMTs are also required to complete ongoing continuing education to upgrade, refresh and maintain their skills and knowledge.  RMTs may practice using multiple manual therapy modalities to support their patient’s recovery and rehabilitation during treatment.  Rahim integrates some of the following modalities during your treatment:
