• Alison Coolican, RMT, BSc

    Alison has been an RMT since 2005 and along with maintaining a busy practice, she has been involved in the profession in several ways.  Since 2008 she has been an educator in the massage therapy profession:  instructor in the RMT programs at Langara College and the West Coast College of Massage Therapy, assistant to Mark Finch with his myofascial release courses, assistant for craniosacral courses with the Upledger Institute, as well as a stretch therapy and yoga teacher at community centers. She is continually inspired by the growing body of science-based knowledge and wisdom in the massage therapy profession and enjoys the challenges and rewards of teaching.  Alison was also involved with the Registered Massage Therapists Association of BC as a board member for 7 years.

    Alison’s treatments are patient-focused; meaning your goals are a part of the treatment plan.  She has studied with local and international leaders in myofascial, visceral and neurofascial manual therapy and has gained skills to alleviate strains and snags within the web of connective tissue (fascia) in the body.  Furthermore, Alison provides a component of movement re-education to help change conscious or unconscious habits that perpetuate painful movement.

    Alison comes from an athletic background involving competitive running and cycling. She is grateful to live in a place where the beauty of our natural surroundings constantly reminds her of the amazing connection, we have to each other and to the earth.  To celebrate this Alison ski, climb, bike, and practice yoga.
