Michael Ma - Registered Massage Therapist
Languages: English & Mandarin
I have a diverse educational and training background including a diploma in Registered Massage Therapy from Vancouver, a Master’s Degree in Physical Education, and being a Chinese Massage Practitioner in China. I speak both English and Chinese (Mandarin).
Many years of training and involving with sports has given me a wisdom and insight that can only come with experience. I gradually realized that massage-- as an ancient manual therapy, is such an efficient tool for maintaining and improving people's health. Besides, formal school training makes me understand better why massage really matters for injury recovery. In my practice, I am always trying to combine what I learned from western massage essence, with Chinese massage wisdom such as whole-body balance principle, to help my clients get better. I practice Swedish, myofascial release, trigger point, lymphatic drainage, proprioceptive neuromuscular facilitation, muscle energy, joint mobilizations, passive & active muscle stretching, hydro therapy and deep tissue therapy.
In my spare time, I love all kinds of sports, hiking, traveling, good rocks and spending time with my family.
