Stephanie Wilcott RMT & owner
I graduated from WCCMT in 2001 and have been practicing massage therapy for over 20 years. I started the first decade of my career in East Van on Commercial Drive, then spent 8 years working in Lynn Valley on the North Shore. In March of 2019, Annie and I set up Sunrise Health Massage Therapy. I am truly delighted to have returned to my home turf in East Van and am eagerly reconnecting with my community through my practice.
Over the years, a keen interest in perinatal massage has led me to take several courses in this area. My 2 boys were born at home with the help of my midwife. Something that isn’t for everyone, but something that I will always cherish. This is an exciting time with lots going on. I find that patients typically have a lot of questions. It is my honour to set your mind and body at ease so you can relax and get the care you deserve.
I am also a certified prenatal and postnatal exercise instructor. I feel that exercise is not only essential to a healthy pregnancy, but also to a good delivery and speedy recovery.
Of course, I treat many other conditions from acute injuries to chronic nagging ones. Preventing repetitive strain injuries whether from work or sports is of particular importance. Symptomatic relief can also be provided for diabetes, arthritis, MS, migraines, osteoporosis, and many other systemic conditions.
I am committed to offering my patients evidence based massage therapy techniques specifically tailored to that individual along with homecare instructions and education. I strongly believe that maintenance and prevention are key to providing quality health care and I strive to achieve this with each patient.
At home, I enjoy spending time with my husband, energetic boys and new cat Louis. Tending to my flower, fruit and vegetable gardens is an ongoing passion. And a good hike in the woods always makes me smile.
