a Registered Massage Therapist
NEW: Required information for patients.
After 5 years of working under my own name, I felt like it was time to rebrand and bring forward a new image.
Starting January 1st, 2024, Renee Tong RMT will become Revel Health!
Come visit my new website in 2024: www.revelhealth.ca
There will be changes coming over the next few months, but you'll always be able to find me in clinic, at events, and around Victoria with my massage table.
A B O U T M E
I always knew growing up that I wanted to learn about the body. I was fascinated with what humans are physically capable of and how the body can adapt to change. I graduated from UWO with a kinesiology degree and continued on to Sutherland-Chan School of Massage Therapy for more education which included clinical placements in sports, palliative, seniors, pregnancy, and stroke recovery settings.
Interacting with patients and trying to uncover the factors in their discomfort are what I enjoy most about being an RMT. I use a range of assessment and massage techniques to care for every person and do not rely solely on deep pressure. I am a big believer in movement and will incorporate it into my treatments as well as the self care afterwards.
What to expect at your treatment
Every treatment will begin with an assessment. I want to see how your body is moving and how it is feeling before we begin any soft tissue work. That way, we can put together a targeted plan. Make sure to wear clothes that you can move in as we may check range of motion or begin the treatment clothed.
Depending on the goals we set out and your level of comfort, the treatment may include a combination of massage techniques, joint mobilizations, reassessing, and stretching. If needed, we'll end with self care exercises to keep you moving and feeling better until the next treatment.
Be prepared to participate in your treatment!
