About Megan

Megan Fredheim is a Registered Massage Therapist (RMT) practicing out of Koi Treatment Centre in Victoria, BC. She graduated from the West Coast College of Massage Therapy in Victoria, BC and has been practicing continuously as an RMT since 2010. She also has a Bachelor’s degree in Health Sciences from Thompson Rivers University. She is a member in good standing of both the Registered Massage Therapists’ Association of BC (RMTBC) and the College of Massage Therapists of BC (CMTBC).

Megan enjoys treating people with a wide range of conditions and has a special interest in treating those with persistent pain. She values continuous learning and has taken many courses from prominent pain researchers that inform her therapeutic approach. She is constantly expanding her knowledge and skills through research and continuing education.

She believes treatment is most effective when it is a true collaboration between therapist and client. Her approach to massage therapy involves considering each person’s areas of concern within the context of their whole body as well as their whole life. Among the tools in her therapeutic toolbox is a range of manual techniques and approaches including Systemic Deep Tissue Therapy (SDTT), myofascial release, general Swedish massage, manual lymphatic drainage, joint mobilizations, therapeutic exercise, and patient education.

When not working at the clinic, Megan enjoys traveling, jogging, weight lifting, painting, and continually learning more about health and massage therapy.

“The skin is no more separate from the brain than the surface of a lake is separate from its depths. The two are in different locations in a continuous medium. The skin is an extension of the brain. The brain is a single functional unit from cortex to fingertips to toes. To touch the surface is to stir the depths.” -Deane Juhan
