PETER LIMRegistered Massage Therapist & Manual Osteopath
Peter graduated from the 3000 hour RMT program at West Coast College of Massage Therapy and has been practicing since 2009. During the 3-year program, he discovered that his greatest interest was in Sports and Orthopedic care. In his practice, he treats a variety of acute and chronic injuries with people at different levels of activity, and at various stages of their lives. His goal is to always encourage people to move pain free. During treatments, Peter assesses movement patterns and mobilizes tissue in order to improve range of motion. Assessing and reassessing areas during treatment are an important part of the treatment because it gives him and the patient a glimpse of how things are improving.
Peter has taken continuing education courses such as RockTape: FMT Movement & Mobility Specialist, FMT basic & advanced, and FMT blades & blades advanced, Soft Tissue Release and Rapid NeuroFascial Reset. Courses like these have evolved his treatment style to encourage the patient’s body to move pain free.
Peter does direct billings for massage therapy with most insurance companies but unfortunately does not do any direct billings with ICBC or WCB. Currently, he is not accepting new patients that have not been to the clinic before.
As a Manual Osteopath, Peter has been practicing since 2016. He uses soft tissue manipulation in many different ways to evaluate and treat the condition. Fascia is a type of connective tissue that connects all the body’s structures at the superficial and deep levels. Peter can evaluate the fascia to find areas of tightness, and then use soft tissue manipulation to help lengthen and decrease tension of the fascia to help properly maintain balance. Treating just the soft tissue sometimes may not be enough, but to also treat the joints can be helpful. Using arthrokinetic stretching to joints can help maintain joint health and function. Using other tools such as low level laser therapy (AKA cold laser therapy), ultrasound and even electrical stimulation, he can treat many musculoskeletal conditions.
Currently, Peter is a member of the National Manual Osteopathic Society (NMOS), and because of the caliber of training required by NMOS, the following insurance companies recognize NMOS members. Canada Life, Green Shield Canada, Manulife Financial, Sun Life, Desjardins Insurance, Cowan Insurance Group, and Pacific Blue Cross.
