Joshua Borlase, RMT Registered Massage Therapist

Joshua Borlase is a Registered Massage Therapist (RMT) based out of beautiful Vancouver specializing in a variety of massage therapy techniques, including Swedish, myofascial release, trigger point therapy, Dermo-Neuro Modulation (Diane Jacobs) and Systemic Deep Tissue Therapy (Armand Ayaltin).  Joshua will find the right modality for you – the right tool for the right job.

Joshua’s life and professional experience

From musical theatre training to tech support, Josh has run a sinuous route through life prior to graduating from the prestigious The West Coast College of Massage Therapy’s 3000-hour program, Canada’s leading massage therapy school. There he took part in many wonderful community outreaches including The Burnaby Association for Community Inclusion, South Granville Seniors Centre, Friends for Life, George Pearson Centre, VGH burn ward, as well as post event massages with the Lululemon Seawheeze, Ride to Conquer Cancer, and Whistler Grand Fondo.

How can Joshua help you?

Joshua has worked with patients affected by conditionings such as Multiple Sclerosis, Fibromyalgia, burns covering 60%+ skin surface, post Polio, developmental cognitive impairments, Para and Quadriplegia, and post Cancer.

Joshua believes that there are few things in this world more powerful than touch and understands the importance of getting to the underlying causes of pain and dysfunction.  He uses a systematic approach to tackling your problems, whether it be healing from injury or high-level athletics.

Beyond his ability to enjoy life and make people feel at ease, Josh wants to help you heal problems such as chronic pain, respiratory disorders, tension headaches, movement issues and postural imbalance.  He can also help you with adaptive ergonomics, postoperative rehabilitation, and exercise regimens.

Passionate about your experience

He trusts that it’s not just the treatment itself that is healing – he is passionate about delivering a whole experience that creates the time and space you need to really be present with your own body. His sessions allow you to set aside whatever you may be carrying for a little while and come back to your life feeling renewed and ready.
