If you've followed Shannon for the last five or so years, you likely know that her journey with massage began as a practitioner licensed and insured to perform massage in BC, but not to bill to extended medical plans or a client's "insurance". The program at the Vancouver School of Bodywork & Massage was high-caliber and served Shannon well; clients very much enjoyed Shannon's flowing, deep, holistic treatments. Her two years at the Scandinave Spa Whistler and running her own mobile & home-based massage business was beautiful and challenging and most importantly, led her to the next most logical step -- becoming an RMT.
The decision to return to school for the 2,200-hour massage therapy program was an easy one, given Shannon's genuine passion for massage and curiosity in the workings of the human body. The process however, has been far from easy.
Shannon can proudly say she is now a RMT in BC, one the most rigorous provinces for regulated massage therapy.
