RAEGEN OLMSTEAD RMT, REGISTERED MASSAGE THERAPIST
Raegen graduated from Vancouver College of Massage Therapy in December, 2017 and became licensed in May of 2018 through the College of Massage Therapy of BC. She is inspired by the joy it brings her to help people thrive and loves that doing her best at her job helps her patients do their best at everything that matters to them.
Through her practice as an RMT she has gained a deep appreciation of the importance of working in collaboration with each patient to develop custom treatment plans that are creative and specific to their needs. Prioritizing relaxation as the main framework, Raegen blends various techniques, including Craniosacral, in order to engage the body’s parasympathetic nervous system aka ‘the rest and digest’ system. This facilitates the natural healing process to assist her clients in functioning at their optimal levels.
Using comprehensive assessment along with critical and creative thinking, Raegen enjoys the challenge of getting to the roots of the various issues that are presented. She meets each person where they are in order best facilitate each person’s own journey of health.
As a certified yoga instructor, she believes that properly modified yoga is a useful tool in the journey of wellness. She uses this knowledge to incorporate yoga poses as home practice, empowering her clients to reach their goals. Having a background in horticulture, she knows that humans and plants are not so different, that it takes commitment and patience to nurture health, life, and harmony.
With her two mischievous cats in tow, Raegen is excited to be living in the place that has always made her heart sing, right here in Victoria. When she’s not at the clinic you can be sure to find her exploring the great outdoors through camping, hiking, kayaking, and paddle boarding.
