Massage Therapy ICBC - What Helps You
BIO: Owen Giroux
Owen graduated top of his class from Langara College’s 3200 hour Registered Massage Therapy program and is now back at Langara working with students in the program.
Having taken advanced classes in spinal and regional orthopedics, myofascial techniques, cadaver labs, and sports rehab, Owen has become fascinated with the intricacies of pathologies and physiology.
His training has taught him how the breath, posture, nervous system, and even the immune system all play a critical role with one another. Through a personalized assessment and treatment plan, he aims to help you achieve your goals by treating the body as a whole, using techniques to address these systems as needed.

As a local Vancouverite with a passion for health and wellness.
Owen has developed a fondness for yoga as well as a deep respect for resistance training. Years of yoga practice and volunteering at a studio have taught him the benefits of mobility, mindfulness, and relaxation. Over a decade of strength training and powerlifting has taught Owen fluency with fitness styles and how to strengthen to rehab the body. Combining this experience with Registered Massage Therapy, his treatments focus on educating patients on developing strategies for symptom management and injury prevention while still delivering an effective and relaxing massage.
“I want to empower my patients so they are not solely dependent on a therapist, but have the ability to progress with a skill set of their own.”
