Kennedy Ritchie, RMT

1000008900.jpg

Kennedy graduated from VCMT’s Registered Massage Therapy program in April 2019 with an in-depth education of human anatomy and physiology, as well as orthopedic assessment and treatment. She is also currently pursuing a Bachelor's degree in Health Sciences from Thompson Rivers University. 

 

Kennedy uses her experience from both clinical and spa settings to maintain a relaxing and welcoming atmosphere while delivering effective, patient-centered treatments. Kennedy believes in listening to and adjusting for each patient's specific needs in order to achieve the best results. 

 

Kennedy's practice takes a specific interest in prenatal and postpartum care, as well as post-surgical scar tissue treatment for procedures such as C-sections, mastectomies, breast reconstruction, and gender affirming top surgery.

 

When not at work, Kennedy can be found exploring the North Shore mountains, practicing yoga, baking something tasty, or cozying up on the couch with a good video game.
