Garrick is a Registered Massage Therapist who is always seeking ways to learn and improve himself professionally and personally. He has always been fascinated with the human body and has immersed himself in Kinesiology and Human Anatomy throughout his post secondary education.
Being an active individual, he has much knowledge of the physical nature of various sports and other activities. With many years of experience working with the motor skills of children living with disabilities, he understands an individualised approach is required in order to meet each person’s needs.
Through his education and life experiences, he has learned to utilize effective manual therapy techniques and a patient-centered approach to help improve the health and wellness of patients.
Charvet completed his Registered Massage Therapy program at West Coast College of Massage Therapy. His passion for human anatomy and sports drives him to learn more about the human body and its capabilities. With that being said, he likes to incorporate new concepts that he learns from books and continuing education courses and applies them to his treatments.
Throughout his 2 years at the college, he had the opportunity to work with multiple varsity athletes at UBC, orthopedic patients in care homes, and enthusiastic runners at events like the Lululemon Seawheeze and the BMO Marathon. He works with every patient to find ways that they can mitigate or break the cycle of pain from their injuries and prevent those injuries from occurring again. He has worked in many different types of clinic settings that helped him adjust to a variety of clinical cases. Charvet’s main goal is to have his patients regain their confidence by overcoming their injuries, being more aware of their own bodies, and having them continue their active daily living without pain being present.
In his own time, you can find him playing volleyball at the beach, on top of the mountains on his snowboard, and hiking with his dog Monty.
