Riley Collins is a graduate of the Camosun College Registered Massage Therapy program. Riley chose to become a Massage Therapist to help others connect their mind and body – her intention during each treatment is to create a calm and supportive space wherein patients can develop their healthcare goals. Her treatment style is varied and adapted to each patient’s needs; she takes a patient-centred approach, empowering her patients through Massage and home-care programs. She creates short- and long-term care plans and enjoys offering self-care tips to supplement the programs.
Riley treats all types of musculoskeletal injuries using a mixture of deep tissue massage, Swedish massage techniques, myofascial release, joint mobilizations, neuromuscular techniques, and scar work amongst others. Supporting people’s health goals in a multidisciplinary clinic and working as part of a team is very important to Riley. Each treatment involves history questions, assessment, re-assessment, and homecare to give the patient the best Massage Therapy can offer.
Wellness Massage Treatments:
As she waits to write her registration exams to become a Registered Massage Therapist, Riley is offering Wellness Massage treatments only. Wellness Massage treatments are NOT covered under private health insurance plans, ICBC, DVA, or WCB until such time as she is fully registered. Wellness Massage treatments are offered at discounted rates compared to RMT rates.
Wellness Massage treatments focus on general well-being and use Swedish massage techniques. These techniques can apply deeper tissue work but certain modalities will be added after she becomes an RMT.
