Pam Cheema, RMT

My name is Pam Cheema and I have been practicing as a RMT for over 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, 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. Furthermore, I completed 3 course levels on Craniosacral therapy. And other modalities I provide 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

Tendonitis

Sciatica issues

Muscle strain

Ligament Sprains

Frozen Shoulder

Soft tissue Injuries

Stress

During the massage sessions, I focus on the soft tissue issues you may be experiencing, and I provide you an effective self-care or preventative care tailored to your needs to achieve your well-being goals.
