OWEN

GIROUX

As a local Vancouverite with a passion for health and wellness, I have developed a fondness for yoga as well as a deep respect for resistance training. Years of yoga practice and volunteering at a studio have taught me the benefits of mobility, mindfulness, and relaxation. Over a decade of strength training and powerlifting have taught me fluency with fitness styles and how to strengthen to rehab the body.

Combining this experience with my professional training, my treatments focus on educating patients, developing strategies for symptom management, and preventing further injury while still giving an effective and relaxing massage. I want to empower my patients so they are not solely dependent on a therapist, but also have the ability to progress with a skill set of their own.

 

My training has taught me how the breath, posture, nervous system, digestive system, and even the immune system all play a critical role with one another. Through a personalized assessment and treatment plan, I aim to help you achieve your health care goals by treating the body as a whole, incorporating techniques into the treatment to address these many systems of the body as needed.

  • Diploma of Registered Massage Therapy - Langara College, Vancouver

I graduated top of my class from Langara College in August, 2016. Along with the fundamentals, the program offered advanced classes in spinal/regional orthopedics, myofascial techniques, sports rehab, cadaver labs, and additional supplementary courses for a more well-rounded knowledge base. At 3200 hours, it also has the most classroom time of any currently available RMT program in BC. For these reasons, I feel this program offered me the best foundation to build my practice on.

  • Active Registrant with the College of Massage Therapy of British Columbia

After passing my board exams in the fall of 2016, I have been an active registrant in good standing with the CMTBC. In British-Columbia, RMTs are mandated to continually expand their knowledge with courses on manual modalities and professionalism, which I abide by with enthusiasm and diligence.

  • Clinic Supervisor at Langara College's RMT Program

Pairing my clinical practice with working back at the school I graduated from has been tremendously gratifying. Being able to give back and help the students in their Massage Therapy Student Clinic not only helps the students, but it gives me the opportunity to stay sharp with my skills and knowledge.

We are always looking for new patients at the Student Clinic and prices range from $40 to FREE! Located at Broadway and Ash, find more info HERE.
