Siavash seeks to make a difference in his patients’ lives through providing a professional treatment, mainly focused on the patient and customized to the patient’s specific condition. He believes that massage therapy can have a great result if done through a thorough assessment, history taking and applying appropriate treatment techniques. He suggests that positive effects of a good massage treatment are beyond what is commonly believed as a simple and mere relaxation massage. Siavash aims to be one of the key players of the health care system by providing patients with positive and effective therapeutic results.

Siavash is highly interested in treating patients with chronic pain and pain syndromes. By providing the patient with information about their condition during the treatment, he aims to educate the patient about their condition for achieving a better result. Using stretch therapy techniques, he helps patients with chronic muscle tightness and emphasizes that a big part of the patient’s treatment is always what the patients do at home as home care.

Before his interest in massage therapy, Siavash was a university teacher and has a PhD in Medical Informatics. He has always been interested in musculoskeletal conditions and that lead him to study massage therapy. He is an RMT student right now and will be graduating from Vancouver Career College in March 2020.

When not working at the clinic, Siavash enjoys hiking, swimming and hanging out with his family and friends. He enjoys studying and upgrading his therapeutic knowledge during his spare time to make sure he stays up to date on new techniques and concepts.

He warmly welcomes all new patients.
