Jeannene Christie, RMT
Jeannene is a registered massage therapist who, in addition to providing myofascial ("deep tissue") and Swedish massage, has a special focus on subtle modalities such as biodynamic cranial touch to support the nervous system and promote healing, function, and well-being.
Jeannene also holds a degree in psychology and since 1998 has provided various therapies to children and adults who have autism spectrum disorder and other disabilities. She encourages all people, especially those who have disabilities, to receive the benefits of massage, such as relief from pain and improvement in body awareness and movement.
From her work with clients and her own experience living with a chronic condition, Jeannene has developed a greater depth of understanding and more effectiveness at helping others who are coping with physical and/or health challenges.
Graduated from Langara College Registered Massage Therapy Program in 2016.

“My son has autism and is more calm and regulated after having Jeannene work on him. She has a lot of experience with people on the autism spectrum, and her level of comfort working with ASD kids plus her training in bio-dynamic cranial touch and traditional massage therapy helps my son's body and mind. It's also nice that I can use my At Home Program Funding to go towards the treatment. Since doing massage with Jeannene, Devon has gone from moving around and having a hard time staying on the table, to being able to stay still 30 min+. He is now allowing her to work on his tummy, neck, and calves that were ticklish and tight before. I've been seeing Jeannene for my ongoing left rotator cuff injury after I was recently diagnosed with frozen shoulder and had no range of motion. Since seeing Jeannene, my range is almost 100%, my pain has gone down tremendously, and during my last massage treatment, the areas that usually hurt when she would massage, didn't hurt!! Would highly recommend this wonderful therapist!”
“My first experience at Klinik was excellent. Jeannene conducted a thorough evaluation of my back and shoulders, and the massage treatment left me feeling relaxed with improved range of motion and less pain in my right shoulder. Booking an appointment was easy and straightforward. I will certainly plan to return on a regular basis.”
“Jeannene is great! I liked the Swedish massage with the myofascial release, felt amazing!”
