Michael Reoch is a Registered Massage Therapist from Vancouver, British Columbia. He graduated in 2007 from the 3000 hour massage therapy program at WCCMT. Michael is the chair of a special interest group called PPGPain which is for RMTs who have a special interest in treating persistant pain. He has helped develop Pain education programs for RMTs in BC through the RMTBC and PainBC. Also, Michael taught advanced clinical and accademic classes at WCCMT. He has been a board member of the RMTBC for five years helping to advance the massage therapy proffession through science based education. He also teaches DNM with its creator Diane Jacobs PT:

"DermoNeuroModulating, or -tion, is a structured, interactive approach to manual therapy that considers the nervous system of the patient from skin cell to sense of self. Techniques are slow, light, kind, intelligent, responsive and effective. Positioning of limbs and trunk affects deeper nerve trunks (by shortening and widening their container), and is combined with skin stretch directed toward cutaneous fields of nerves that branch outward into skin (which may draw neural structure further through its container). 
It is prudent to remember that manual handling of a patient's physicality is only a small part of developing a complete therapeutic context for change - while optional, it can also be optimal."

 

Graduée de Kiné-Concept en massage Suédois depuis 2007, Carol Lynn Chevrier ne cesse d'approndir et de peaufiner sa passion pour le massage. Oeuvrant en pratique privée et en spa, elle remarque d'emblée, que la vaste majorité de ses clients ont recours  à la massothérapie dans le but de gérer un problème de douleur.

Mue par le désir de mieux rencontrer les demandes et besoins de ses clients, elle entreprend une longue réflexion quant au rôle des thérapies manuelles dans la gestion des présentations douloureuses. Elle cumule, depuis 2011, les formations et les lectures visant à mieux comprendre les mécanismes qui sous-tendent la douleur et le toucher.
