Mike Joyce

Registered Massage Therapist

Mike Joyce is a graduate of West Coast College of Massage Therapy (August 2014) in Victoria BC. Following graduation Mike moved to Parksville, BC at the beginning of 2015 after living in Victoria for the previous twelve years.

Mike started giving massages when he was a teenager to friends and family, and really enjoyed being able to help relax and heal others. He's been in love with the profession ever since and nothing makes him happier than to help out others.

Mike likes to use deep tissue techniques, myofascial work, general swedish massage(GSM), triggerpoint therapy and cranial/sacral work to help with sports injuries, strains, sprains, fibromyalgia, disc bulges, sciatica, or any other health problems. Mike can also help if you simply wish to receive a relaxation treatment.

Currently, Mike is looking into getting more training in the next year or so for increased muscle energy technique(MET) methods.
