Alysha Connor, RMT
Growing up on the North Shore, I participated in many sports and active hobbies. From soccer and volleyball to running and hiking. Throughout my life I have had several different injuries and have had the opportunity to experience many different forms of rehabilitation. I have found that every modality benefited me and helped with my rehabilitation in different ways. Being able to experience the benefits of manual and active therapies for myself has encouraged a passion in me to pursue a career in this area. I was drawn to massage therapy and its ability to help heal through the combination of relaxation and therapeutic treatments.
I graduated in 2019 from the University of British Columbia with a Bachelor’s of Kinesiology. I worked as a Kinesiologist for two years before I began my journey at the Vancouver College of Massage Therapy in January 2021. I graduated from VCMT in August of 2022 and after completing my registration exams, I became a Registered Massage Therapist in November 2022.
During the past few years I have had the privilege to work in several different therapeutic environments such as physiotherapy, massage therapy, active rehab and chiropractic care. But I have felt drawn to the area of Massage Therapy in the way that it allows a focused and hands-on relationship between patient and therapist and the ability to encourage a holistic approach to rehabilitation. I enjoy being able to incorporate my active rehab background into my massage treatments. As an RMT, my treatments include a variety of techniques such as Swedish-relaxation massage, myofascial & neuromuscular techniques, stretching and active rehabilitation.
When I am not treating patients, you can find me running, hiking the North Shore mountains, playing soccer or reading a good book.
I look forward to being able to apply my skills to help you achieve your health goals.
