Registered Massage Therapist, Licensed Practical Nurse
Born and raised in the Okanagan, Rio left to pursue her love of massage therapy in Vancouver, B.C. While in Vancouver, Rio worked with a wide range of patients from different organizations including UBC Varsity Athletics, BC Women's and Children’s (pre/postnatal and labour), Canuck Place, GF Strong Hospital, the MS Society and lululemon Seawheeze. These experiences solidified Rio’s passion for both sports rehabilitation and pre/postnatal massage.
Rio’s passion for sports and rehabilitation has its origins in her own 16 year history of competitive figure skating and dance, as well as in her active lifestyle. At the same time, the past six years spent nursing at Kelowna General Hospital as both a surgical and medical nurse have enhanced her knowledge of post-surgical recovery. Rio brings this knowledge to all of her RMT patients, providing them with a thorough treatment plan to better assist their recovery.
She is looking forward to bringing her unique qualifications to the Pro Motion Team and is even more excited about working with her patients, enhancing their ability to enjoy their lifestyle in optimal health.
