I have a really good registered massage therapist, but she’s just not that into me.
For a while now, I’ve been going to an RMT in Kitsalano that I really quite like. Unfortunately, I can’t get an appointment with her in the evenings or on the weekends. Apparently, she has “regulars” who book up all her evening and weekend spots. Every last spot. This wasn’t a big problem for me when I worked in Vancouver – I could pop over there on my lunch or I could shift my workday an hour earlier and get an afternoon spot. But now that I work waaaaaaaaay out in Surrey, I can’t get back into Vancouver before 5 p.m. – and all the post-5 p.m. spots are perma-filled. Every last spot. The only way to get one of those spots is to be on the “on call” list – if a regular cancels, then you may be graced with a phone call saying “if you can come in this evening, you may have a massage.” There’s no guarantees of if or when such a phone call maybe received. This is just not sufficient for my therapeutic massage needs.
Anyone have any recommendations? Preferrably somewhere in the Kits-ish area and somewhere that charges the going rate of ~$80/hr (which is what my insurance will cover).
