Miyuki Numata

RMT

Miyuki graduated from Vancouver College of Massage Therapy and carries a passion to support her patient’s recovery process from the most vulnerable stages to one of full health. That passion led her to attain a full certification of the Vodder Method of Manual Lymph Drainage (MLD) and Combined Decongestive Therapy (CDT).
In addition to MLD, she incorporates a variety of gentle, non-aggressive techniques as appropriate in the healing stages for the various conditions being treated.  She likes simpler home care techniques patients can do at home as she believes the majority of healing process should happen outside the treatment room,

When she is not working, she loves hiking/scrambling/snowshoeing on local mountains.

It is through this she finds her passion in treating patients with lymphatic disorders.
