Karen Docksteader, RMT

Registered Massage Therapy Vancouver

Hi, Karen here.  My journey as an RMT, Registered Massage Therapist in Vancouver, spans over two decades: I originally graduated from the Westcoast College of Massage Therapy in December, 1996.  But prior to sitting my board exams, I suffered some personal tragedies that left me completely blind.  As a result, I had to learn to live again.  Bodywork helped me do this.  After coming to terms with my blindness and doing some upgrading, I successfully passed the formal RMT board exams in 2016. 

I love what I do. One of the things I love most about massage therapy is helping my patients achieve their health goals by bringing them back to normal function.

Having worked as a body worker for more than 20 years, I have developed a broad tool kit in physical medicine.  The various modalities I use work together to help me restore normal function for my patients.

I incorporate the following modalities into my practice:

  • Cranial Sacral Therapy
  • Swedish massage
  • Neuro-meningeal manipulation
  • Somato-emotional release
  • Fascial release therapy
  • Trigger point therapy
  • and many many more!

When you come to see me at the clinic you will meet a beautiful yellow lab named Zoom, who is my partner in life.  He will greet you and help you feel right at home.  We hope to see you soon!
