I Need A New RMT

I have a really good registered massage therapist, but she’s just not that into me.

Massage ... by Ourania2005 ❤on a break-driving lessons.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).

  1. I like Everest Therapeutics because they have an online self-booking system, which satisfies my Type A need to choose the best possible available time and therapist. 🙂 They're downtown, though.

    The RMT I saw last time I went to Everest was Suzette Pleau: http://everesttherapeutics.com/massage-therapis

    Highly recommended! Especially if you are getting massage therapy for anything sports-related – she is an accomplished athlete herself ans knows her stuff.
