Tiana Stoddart, RMT

Tiana graduated from the extended 3000 hour program at West Coast College of Massage Therapy, an institution that offers one of the highest educational standards in the country. She is currently studying advanced anatomy through the Bachelor of Health Science degree program at Thompson River University. Through continuing education opportunities, Tiana has complete over 70 hours within an anatomy lab examining cadavers. This experience has given her advanced knowledge of the interconnected structures within the body, allowing her to create treatments targeted at eliminating the problem rather than temporarily covering up the pain.  Her style strives to rejuvenate a client’s spirit while rehabilitating their physical dysfunctions. Tiana has worked extensively with a variety of conditions, most notably; desk worker’s syndrome, deep tissue athletics, headaches and migraines, pregnancy, pseudo-sciatica (piriformis syndrome), thoracic outlet syndrome, and chronic lower back pain. As health is a continually evolving state, her style involves deep tissue massage and assigning home care exercise to her clients to prolong the beneficial results of each treatment. “Due to the time I spent working within a spa environment, I’ve seen the effect that deep relaxation can have on muscle tension, allowing a therapist to work deeply and at a less painful scale for the client. As a therapist I like to incorporate flowing techniques aimed at increasing relaxation for an enjoyable, yet very deep and therapeutic experience.” My techniques include:

  •  Myofascial active release
  • Trigger point release
  • Swedish relaxation techniques
  • Swedish deep tissue techniques
  • Postural Awareness
  • Passive and active stretching
  • Individual specific home care

Testimonials

Tiana is a gifted massage therapist with a great bedside manner. She adjusts her technique based on your current needs and injuries, but she is the only RMT I have been to that massages deep enough to be therapeutic for my needs. A friend recommended that I see Tiana, and I have since recommended her to many friends and colleagues. Tiana is a massage therapist you would follow anywhere! Amy

I have had only great experiences with Tiana at Vancity Massage Therapy. I have had a number of massages from different therapists over the years for the same shoulder problem that I often aggravate. Other therapists often struggle to really hit the spot but Tiana seemed to know exactly what and where the problem was straight away. The massage was definitely firm enough (others often aren’t) and she would often check that the pressure was ok. The service and friendliness is exceptional, and Tiana goes the extra mile by showing and even emailing stretches to do at home. Only good things to say. Matt

Tiana is a superb massage therapist. Thanks to her professional and thoughtful approach I leave each session feeling recovered and rejuvenated. Ryan

Tiana is a great RMT and cares a lot about her patients. She has found stretches to help with my back pain and emailed me articles explaining them. She is very knowledgeable and friendly and I would definitely recommend! Danielle

Great massage, easy to schedule. Sometimes I’ll just do an hour, but if I have time, I’ll do 90 mins. It’s in a great location downtown as well. Friendly staff! Sean

I’ve followed the RMT here from when she used to treat me at another clinic.  Since she is now in business for herself she has to start from the bottom, and is located within a beauty salon rather than a clinic, and the noise from the salon sometimes creeps into the massage room.  But once you get used to a bit of a tighter space and some extra “ambient” noises, there are really only positive things left to say. Tiana constantly communicates with you while providing treatment so that she can always know what she needs to help you better.  The smaller space is because her company is relatively new, but she is passionate and driven to help her clients.  Other treaters I have visited felt like they were simply doing their job, in a sterile environment, often trying to get me out the door ASAP to get the next client in (as well as my money).  With Tiana you immediately sense her warmth and care, and she works her schedule to make sure that she has enough time to give each client the attention they need so she can help them the most. Pricing is lower than most other massage clinics, but the value is definitely worth more than the price tag. Strongly recommended. RL
