Sabrina Bouchard

BC Registered Massage Therapist
I am thrilled to offer you assistance with your musculoskeletal issues! I like to offer a blend of Swedish relaxation and Deep Tissue as an individualized treatment to help you reclaim a pain-free active living in our great outdoors! I truly think that movement is health. In 2014, I came to realize the power of manual therapy when I broke my back following a snowboarding accident. I know way too well the bumps and twisty turns of the recovery process and it became clear to me that I wanted to help people in that way. I therefore completed my massage diploma with honours out of Alberta in June 2021.
