Brendan Dunphy, Registered Massage Therapist
The breath... so simple, so essential, yet so often taken for granted. It is what can bring us from a state of anxiety into a deep state of relaxation within mere seconds. However, the breath in conjunction with massage can produce an even more powerful therapeutic outcome. In order for the body's natural healing mechanisms to awaken, it must be brought into a state of ease -- as opposed to the very common state of unease or dis-ease that so many of us live from today. It is for this reason that Brendan puts a strong focus on breathing and relaxation during his treatments.
Brendan graduated on the Dean's List at the Vancouver College of Massage Therapy. His critical mind has developed a keen interest in orthopedics intertwined with the relaxing and stimulating effects of Swedish and sports massage. Through the years, he has also developed a high level of professionalism and empathy, both of which help to create a safe environment for all.
Brendan believes that therapists are only catalysts to helping others achieve their optimal level of health. Aside from helping clients accomplish their short- and long-term health goals, his mandate is to empower each of them to take full responsibility for their health and life outside of the clinic room.
In his free time, Brendan enjoys creating music, playing volleyball, practicing yoga, lifting weights, and exploring nature and the outdoors locally and overseas. He strives for balance in all aspects of life.
