Kara Hine, RMT
Kara is an experienced BC certified RMT graduated from a 3000 hour course at Vancouver College of Massage Therapy in December 2013.
I believe a thorough health history and assessment are crucial to understanding the underlying core issues involved in the treatment of problems such as postural dysfunction, specific acute injury as well as long term injury prevention plans. I find it especially important to educate patients about any imbalances or muscular dysfunctions in order to empower them with practical solutions on their journey to wellness. Previously treating both spas and clinical environments have helped me develop the knowledge and skills needed to provide the most effective therapeutic techniques, such as trigger point therapy, and deep tissue massage, while keeping the treatment relaxing and enjoyable!
I love variety and challenge within treatment conditions but I have a special interest in:
Pregnancy Related Discomfort, Headaches/Migraines, Carpal Tunnel Syndrome, MVA Injuries such as Whiplash, Tendinitis, Sciatica, Frozen Shoulder, Neurological Injury, Insomnia, Plantar Fasciitis, Rheumatoid Arthritis, Lyme Disease, Fibromyalgia and much more.
Modalities: Swedish, Myofascial Release, Neuromuscular (Trigger Points), Deep Tissue, Sports, PNF Stretching, Usage of Fascial Meridian Knowledge, Hydrotherapy & Basic Craniosacral Techniques
