Chad Gottfried, B.Sc.,RMT Growing up as an Air Force brat, living coast to coast in Canada, Chad finally decided to settle in Victoria in 1990 where he received a biology degree from the University of Victoria.He has since fulfilled his life long dream of cycling across Canada and expanded his worldview by travelling beyond our borders including India, where he was fortunate to personally meet the Dalai Lama. So, like many things in his life, Chad approaches massage therapy from many different perspectives. He first discovered massage therapy to be an essential part of success as an athlete including being a former national level competitive road and track cyclist, in particular he found it key to his rapid recovery after being hit by a car while cycling. As a certified yoga instructor and long-time meditation practitioner, Chad also believes massage therapy to be an integral component of well-being from a mind-body perspective. Being a kinesthetic learner and keen problem solver with a deep desire to help others culminated in to the journey of becoming a "new-old" graduate of the West Coast College of Massage Therapy in Victoria in 2017. Combining his own experience in massage therapy as an athlete with the latest manual skills techniques, Chad is excited in working with his patients towards achieving their goals.
