Alicia is a third generation Vancouver Islander. Born in the North Island, she has lived and worked in many different communities from north to south, eventually finding her home as a Registered Message Therapist in Parksville, where she has been practicing for over 10 years. She is also an active registrant with the College of Massage Therapists of B.C.
During her 13 years of practice, Alicia has focused much of her recent time studying the human brain and the “biopsychosocial” approach to treating pain. Studying this type of evidence based research has opened up many new and innovative ways to treat a variety of pain while educating patients to continue their treatment at home for themselves. Alicia’s treatments focus on symptomatic relief as well as exercise and movement specific to the patient’s needs.
When she is not working, Alicia enjoys the environment outdoors with her husband and two children, furry ones included!
