genevieve bartlam, rmt

Originally from Ontario, Genevieve has been blessed to call the beautiful west coast of B.C. home for the past 10 years. Genevieve graduated from the West Coast College of Massage Therapy in 2018 and has been excited to spend the last year and a half starting her practice in Powell River. Her treatments are in a context of relaxation allowing a calming of the nervous system and the body space to heal while also seeking to address concerns as well as their causes, not only the symptoms. She utilizes specific technics such a Myofascial Release, Trigger Point Therapy, active release technics and hydrotherapy. One of her greatest teachers has been injury; understanding first hand what it can be to feel discomfort and limited ability, the power of compassionate care and the real challenges of recovery.   

 

Inspired greatly by the seemingly endless mountains, forests and ocean Genevieve finds peace from running or biking the trails, climbing the cliffs and mountains or kayaking on the ocean. Passionate about being outdoors and being active she strives to maintain health for self and those that she treats. She seeks to help her clients to continue to be able to do whatever it is that makes them smile and interact with this world. 

Genevieve is available:

Thursdays 2:30 - 7:30

Fridays 2:30 - 7:30
