Registered Massage Therapy

Marissa Penney, RMT

After completing the massage therapy program at the West Coast College of Massage with top marks, I returned to my home town of Qualicum Beach to set up a clinic. With four and a half years under my belt as an RMT and thousands of hours of experience, I am excited to be helping clients in my own community. I am experienced in many massage therapy modalities including general swedish, myofascial release, isolytic release, relaxation, and trigger point therapy. Whatever the clients needs, I am professional and competent in addressing the issue.
