Pam Cheema, RMT
My name is Pam Cheema and I have been practicing as an RMT for almost 2 decades in both BC and Alberta. I completed the 3-year program at West Coast College of Massage Therapy in Vancouver, BC and graduated in 1999. Since then, I worked at a variety of locations: spas, hotels, health offices such as doctor, chiropractor, and physiotherapy, and massage therapy clinics.
I provided massage therapy to various types of clientele: pregnant women, MVA clients, office workers, first responders, teachers, dental hygienists, nurses, bank tellers, hairdressers, and many more. Over time, I developed a strong interest in providing pre-natal and postpartum massages. I learned prenatal massages through my professional development courses. Additionally, I completed 3 course levels on Craniosacral therapy.
The other modalities I apply include: Hydrotherapy, Joint Mobilizations, Myofascial release, Trigger Point Release, and Therapeutic Exercises.
Some of the conditions I addressed in my practice include:
- Headaches (Tension and Migraines)
- Postural Imbalances
- Sciatica Issues
- Muscle Strain
- Ligament Sprains
- Frozen Shoulder
- Soft Tissue Injuries
During the massage sessions, I focus on the soft tissue issues you may be experiencing, and I provide education to you on effective self-care or preventative care tailored to your needs to obtain your well-being goals.
Extra information about me: During 2014-2019, I taught at MH Vicars School of Massage Therapy in Edmonton, Alberta. In 2020, I will be teaching at Vancouver College of Massage Therapy.
