Monica Helfer graduated from the West Coast College of Massage Therapy’s extensive 3000hr program in New Westminster, B.C. in 2013. Following her registration she went on to practice at busy multidisciplinary clinics located in Surrey and New Westminster, B.C.. Monica recently relocated to Vancouver Island after an extended exploration of North America, and is very excited to call it home after many years of visiting and imagining herself here.
Through her years of practice, Monica has had the opportunity to treat in a variety of outpatient, clinical, and event settings. She has worked with conditions ranging from Low Back pain and injury, Headaches, Stress and anxiety, Multiple Sclerosis, Fibromyalgia, Motor Vehicle Incident injuries, Repetitive Overuse/Strain injuries, Arthritis, TMJ dysfunction, Acute and Chronic pain, Pregnancy, and more.
Your appointment with Monica will begin with a brief conversation during which she will review your health history and listen carefully to understand your treatment goals. Relevant physical assessment, hands on techniques, and homecare guidance are then used to assist you in reaching your goals. Monica balances passive and active techniques applied in a calm relaxed manner, providing the space for your body and mind to gently move towards equilibrium.
When not working with clients, Monica maintains her happiness by exploring our natural world. A patient hiking partner is a must since she frequently stops to examine mushrooms, lichen and other beauties that surround us. A big fan of both flora and fauna, she has spent much of her life in the company of horses, dogs, cats and other critters. Monica is frequently found in the garden or kitchen and she welcomes the exchange of ideas and recipes.
Monica is licensed through the College of Massage Therapists of British Columbia and is a member of the Massage Therapy Association of British Columbia. Monica welcomes you to her practice and looks forward to supporting your movement towards a greater sense of wellness and comfort.
