Brian is a Registered Acupuncturist who has practiced in Vancouver since 2002. He has studied Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM), German Auricular Medicine and Laser Acupuncture Therapy, while he is also a National Acupuncture Detoxification Association (NADA) trainer. His combination of TCM, auricular and laser acupuncture approaches allow for the treatment of a wide range of issues including chronic and acute pain, and concerns related to mental health, addictions and PTSD.

Originating in China over 4000 years ago, Acupuncture remains to be one of the primary modalities of Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM). This treatment involves the insertion of needles into acupuncture points, which are entryways into the body’s energetic channels (meridians). It is through these points that the body’s vital energy can be stimulated or sedated to restore balance on an emotional, spiritual, and physical level. TCM’s wholistic diagnostic system goes beyond evaluating the disorder purely based on simple symptoms but includes the assessment of complex patterns of disharmony. Through this unique system of diagnosis and treatment, acupuncture can also be seen as preventative, as in many cases, potential problems are recognized and treated before they profess to a more serious situation. Disease is seen to be a result of an internal imbalance and health is achieved by restoring the body and mind to a balanced state.

Maya is available at Broadway Wellness on Tuesdays, Wednesdays, and Fridays.

Human anatomy, movement, and healing have always interested Maya. It started during her youth as an obsession with playing sports and on the sidelines where she could be found taping sprained ankles and bandaging the blisters of her team mates. Over time, Maya’s education came to reflect these interests: a degree in Human Kinetics, Exercise Physiology from the University of British Columbia in 1996 and a Diploma of Massage Therapy from the West Coast College of Massage Therapy in 1997.

As a Registered Massage Therapist, Maya was guided by some wonderful mentors into her current practice of Craniosacral Therapy and Visceral Manipulation. She was intrigued by the effectiveness of these techniques on her own injuries and health and felt compelled to learn more about them. Each course Maya completed made her eager for the next and she has become a lifelong explorer of Craniosacral Therapy, Visceral Manipulation and more recently Neuromeningeal Therapy and Brain Nuclei Release.

Maya has developed a way of working with the body that uses specific assessment methods in order to locate, prioritize and unravel key bound structures and then to apply supportive techniques to integrate the changes with the rest of the body. The techniques focus on the connective tissues that surround or are invested in the brain, spinal cord, nerves, organs, blood vessels, bones and muscles. There is more freedom of movement, improved circulation, less irritability and generally more ease. This allows the function of the body systems to improve and the body can begin to heal itself.

The range of patients Maya often works with reflect the experiences in her personal life… newborns & children, brain & spine trauma, and people who want to feel better able to perform in sports, work, or the day to day adventures of life.

Maya’s practice has evolved over the past 22 years, influenced by her professional experience as a former clinic instructor at WCCMT, student mentor, and former clinic owner of Yaletown Massage Therapy. However, she always returns to her most profound teachers, her patients, who inspire the curiosity and compassion essential to this work.

Maya believes every body has a story to tell and she looks forward to hearing yours.

Monica is not taking new patients at this time, but feel free to call the clinic at 604-732-5222 for more information, and put your name on the wait list at the clinic or online. Monica will reassess her schedule in January 2021 and hope to open it back up to new patients then.

Monica is available at Broadway Wellness Mondays 2-8, Tuesdays 8-2, Wednesdays 2-8, and Thursdays 8-2. Monica is not in every second Monday, Tuesday. Monica Cleland is the owner and operator of Broadway Wellness, which she founded in 2004. Monica graduated from the West Coast College of Massage Therapy in 2002, where she later participated in teaching fascial, cranial, and visceral-based portions of the WCCMT curriculum. After graduation, Monica continued on to take a wide spectrum of post-graduate courses focused on cranialsacral therapy, myofascial release, and visceral manipulation (working specifically with organ misalignment and adhesions). Monica uses a set of assessment techniques to decipher what areas of physical restriction and adhesion (several structures facially bound together – creating density, lack of circulation, lack of mobility, pain, and discomfort in the body), are presenting with greatest priority. She then treats each client uniquely according to how their body responds most comfortably toward restoring long-lasting balance in a safe, efficient, manner. Before Monica started her career, she went through a long personal process of resolving her own very serious chronic pain syndrome over a period of several years. This experience has taught Monica more about the human body than any course or text book. It has shaped her life immensely, and comes through in the way she works with her clients. Monica understands how pain can impact, shape, and distort a person’s life and experience of their reality. She works to share information, and to help people move through their own chronic or acute pain and mal-alignement.

The philosophy behind Brent’s work and the method of Rolfing Structural Integration in which he’s trained, is that our bodies have an inherent wisdom to find balance. Sometimes that natural progression towards harmony meets blockages, tissue restrictions or functional limitations, and the body needs a bit of help to remove those challenges.

Brent began experiencing these challenges first through the study and practice of yoga. He was able to feel how conscious, intentional movement combined with breath was able to change his postural patterns. This encounter led him to become a certified yoga teacher. His curiosity deepened which led him to become an RMT. He has trained in Cranio-Sacral, Thai Massage, Deep Tissue, and ultimately became a Certified Rolfer at the Rolf Institute in Boulder, Colorado.

In his studies of the body and more than ten years of experience, Brent’s found that our physical structure is incredibly fluid, constantly changing and connected as we move through gravity, even when we feel like we’re standing still. His work as an RMT and Rolfer focuses on understanding postural habits and how they can make and break us and be reconsidered. Ida Rolf, the mother of Rolfing SI described her approach as “the yoga you would do for yourself if you could”. Brent delights in sharing Rolfing SI, Ida Rolf’s “yoga”, for his clients. He looks at every session as an opportunity to continue answering the question of what’s possible and how we can move the obstacles that stand in the way of our balance, our comfort, and our lives.

Pia welcomes challenge and has a great respect for the intricacies of the human body.

‘The first time someone gave me a treatment using “Myofascial Release”, I was absolutely amazed, and it inspired my first steps on the path to working in massage therapy.’

Following a ten-year career as a technician for theatre, concerts and festivals, my desire to help people more directly inspired a move to massage therapy. Since graduating from the Vancouver College of Massage Therapy in 2014, I’ve provided therapeutic and relaxation massage in both clinical and spa settings.

I believe relaxation can be a powerful therapeutic tool. I use as much or as little pressure as is necessary to achieve the required therapeutic effect. I use a range of techniques, so we can tailor the treatment to your preferences.

I approach my clients with respectful, non-judgmental empathy. Based on your medical history and the results of orthopedic and neurological testing, we’ll develop a plan to meet your specific needs.

Some of the issues I may be able to help with: - Back, neck and shoulder pain - Hip and leg pain - Recovery from surgery, car accidents, strains, sprains or tendonitis - Postural dysfunction, especially from too much sitting or standing - Stress

I seek to involve my clients in the treatment process, and help them take control of their health through education and homecare. I believe my role is to facilitate change in the body via the nervous system.

Born in England and raised in Canada, I live in East Van with my spouse and our child. I ride my bike to get around, and try to make time for a yoga-inspired self-care practice.

I look forward to meeting you, and working together to achieve your goals.

I am passionate about health and well-being, in body and mind, and helping my patients achieve pain-free function, stress reduction, mobility, body awareness and strength. I approach each treatment with attention and empathy, and work with patients to create tailored goals and plans.

Treatments involve assessment, hands-on therapy, and rehabilitative / preventative homecare. Modalities include myofascial, muscle energy and neuromuscular techniques, trigger point release, joint mobilizations, proprioceptive neuromuscular facilitation, therapist-assisted stretching, and Swedish relaxation.

I have treated adults, children and seniors with conditions including: fibromyalgia, headaches, digestive disorders, TMJ disorder, nerve compression, postural dysfunction, carpal tunnel syndrome, adhesive capsulitis, to name a few.

I graduated from the Vancouver College of Massage Therapy with academic distinction on the Dean’s List, and continue my fascination of the human body through continuous personal and professional learning. Prior to massage therapy, I graduated with a business degree from the University of Toronto, with further studies at UBC, and have had many fulfilling years working in government and non-profit organizations.

Mountains and forests are my second home, and I am an avid climber, skier, trail runner, cyclist, meditation and yoga practitioner, and certified yoga instructor.

I look forward to meeting you!
