Ricky (Rico) Erang, Registered Massage Therapist (RMT), graduated from the West Coast College of Massage Therapy in New Westminster, British Columbia in 2007. His passion is the need to help people create a healthy balance in their lives either by relieving physical pain, stress or simply by a relaxation massage. His focus is on the prevention, rehabilitation and maintenance of those conditions and injuries.
He educates his patients to adopt self-care, into their daily lives and to progressively reach a point of living pain-free. He likes to incorporate relaxation massage in with myofascial release, deep tissue work and trigger point therapy. He also provides prenatal/postnatal massage as well as sport massage modalities for those who are into fitness, sports and bodybuilding.
Ricky (Rico) enjoys the challenges faced when working with those who experience chronic pain, specifically in the neck, shoulders, hips, and those who suffer from TMJ-related pain, headaches, and impingement syndromes. He has treated numerous patients from a wide range of ages from infant babies, teenagers, adults and senior citizens including geriatric patients and those with various disabilities.
Ricky (Rico) leads an active life and workouts regularly in local fitness centres and took a personal training course to help him understand more about muscle functions, body mobility and flexibility. He customizes each of his massage treatments to fit your specific individual needs. He is very attentive with his patients and enjoys listening to the body’s ever changing needs. Ricky (Rico) strongly believes that staying active and distressing oneself physically, mentally, emotionally, and spiritually is of paramount importance in achieving a happy, healthy, and productive lifestyle.
