Paul Carr, Owner | RMT
Paul is one of those people who can fix anything. It started with dune buggies, helicopters, and yachts and ultimately fully developed when he combined his mechanical mind with his people skills as an RMT.
As a graduate of the WCCMT in 1990 he soon shared his clinical skills teaching Introductory Massage Classes and as a Clinical Supervisor at WCCMT. Paul has been committed to fitness his whole life and worked with many National Level Athletes in Vancouver before moving to the Comox Valley, where he and his wife and business partner Bonnie have raised their two daughters.
Paul continues to stay fresh by taking continuing education courses. He has found the latest course, Instrument Assisted Soft Tissue Manipulation, to be an incredible adjunct to the Myofascial Trigger Point Therapy, Myofascial Release, and Neuromuscular therapy techniques that have helped so many people over his 29 year career. Paul works hard to help his patients of all ages and backgrounds maintain/regain their mobility, decrease pain, and increase their quality of life. He is a very positive and motivating presence in our clinic.
