Have you ever been to see a massage therapist? If yes, you already know how much of a difference it can make in one’s well-being and/or healing journey and how amazing you feel after each appointment.

We’re happy to welcome a new massage therapist to the MaxFit team!

How it started…

Rachel was born and raised in beautiful Port Moody and has always pictured living and working in the area. ‘I always dreamed of becoming a massage therapist, and I really wanted to find a way to work here,’ says Rachel. After putting a lot of hard work and dedication into it, Rachel graduated from West Coast College of Massage Therapy in 2015 and has since been working to help improve the health and well-being of many.

‘I played soccer and rugby while in school,’ says Rachel, which was of course lots of fun, but she also experienced a few injuries which led her to seek treatment. It’d be accurate to say that a practitioner can learn a lot from being a patient at least once, which can help them understand the process from both sides. ‘I got to see what it’s like to be a patient here at MaxFit’, she says, which she was happy with and so, she decided to start an internship as part of her high school work experience. But it went beyond that. ‘Aside from the help I received with my treatment, I was inspired to learn about how much Maxfit does for the community,’ she says.

And all the way to today…

Given her love for living, working and contributing to the health of her Port Moody community, it was only a matter of time until Rachel decided to join the team as a practitioner. And we’re happy that she did!

‘My goal is to always adapt my style of massage therapy to best match the needs of my patients, and to make them feel comfortable as we progress with the treatment,’ she says. When she’s not busy seeing patients, Rachel is out and about alongside her family, enjoying her favourite activities: rock climbing, camping, fishing, and traveling.

Favourite quote: ‘You will always feel fear, but overtime you will realize the only way to truly manage your fear is to broaden your comfort zone’ (Alex Honnold, rock climber)

Welcome to the team, Rachel!

What our clients are saying
  • "‘I've been a patient of Dr. Kelsick for the past 10 years, and Dr. Rite for the past 4, and the two are truly amazing at what they do! Although their titles are Chiropractors, they both have such a wide base of knowledge and understanding of the body, that I often feel as if our sessions are a combination of chiropractic, physiotherapy, massage therapy, and occasionally even nutrition. As such, when I see them, I know I am being taken care off. As an athlete, and simply an injury prone individual, they have both truly made a difference in how my body functions. I definitely recommend =).’ "
    Sabrina Nettey
  • "‘Dr. Kelsick and his team are truly amazing. They’ve been putting me back together and keeping me moving for more than 15 years and now take care of my whole extended family, from my 86-year-old mom to my teenage daughters. Dr. Kelsick goes the extra mile to understand exactly what is going on with your body in order to provide the very best solutions. No problem is too complex or challenging. Think Dr. House with a far better bedside manner!’ "
    Peggi Peacock
  • "‘As an athlete my goal is to have a fit and healthy body, and Maxfit Movement Institute helps me maintain this goal. The team of Doctors are truly gifted, and their positive outlook on life is amazing. Thank you for making a difference in my life.’"
    L Murphy
  • "‘The difference with the staff at MaxFit, especially Randy and Wilbour: they take the time to assess and determine the source of your aches or pains. Not only do they treat whatever it is, they explain how to avoid it happening again. I have tried many physio-therapists but none of them come close to MaxFit. Highly recommended. ‘"
