A self-proclaimed “everything and everybody” registered massage therapist, Kevin Breiter started his RMT career in 2008 as a team trainer with The Abbotsford Women’s Rugby (divisions 1 and 2) and within the spa and resort industry

“I have always wanted to find the patient prospective that the clinical/ therapeutic world couldn’t provide,” he says.
He has continued working within the industry for the last 5 years, focusing on in-depth studies of sport related injuries, hydro-therapies, conditions related to everyday life activity, and trauma injuries from motor vehicle accidents.

Working within resorts such as Harrison Hot Springs, Sparkling Hill Resort and Silver Star Mountain Resort, he soon found himself supervising part-time at the local OVCMT College, in classes for Clinical Practice, Hydrotherapy, Assessment and Maturity. He also spent his time heading various sport outreach clinics within the Thompson Okanagan.

“Supervising and being around the next generation of our profession is a blast,” he says. “They have the best questions regarding all subjects of the trade and life that I have grown to love.”
Now, he has finally found a clinic he values as home.

I recently moved to beautiful British Colombia from Manitoba. I have been practise massage therapy since my graduation in 2014 from Wellington College of Remedial Massage Therapy.

The world has evolved into a fast paced society. Stress can be very detrimental to our health and wellbeing. Sometimes the best way to recharge our batteries is to unplug them.

I am a strong believer in preventative health care and health management.

Tension is who you think you should be.

Relaxation is who you are.

Muscles work in pairs, where one is the “antagonist” and the other is the “protagonist”. He works to balance these pairs, and create healthy body mechanics.
