Joanne Argatoff is a talented Registered Massage Therapist (RMT) living on Gambier Island. She owns and operates the Secret Garden Therapeutic Spa in West Vancouver and continues to work out of Balance Acupuncture and Massage, which she has been at for over 5 years.
Joanne graduated from the 3000 hour program at the West Coast College of Massage Therapy in New Westminster in 2012, a longer and more thorough program than what is offered today.
She is most interested in deep tissue therapeutic massage and sports massage, though she is flexible and varied, and will ensure you receive the treatment you're looking for. Joanne believes that clients must be active in their rehabilitation, giving home care stretches and strengthening exercises to ensure a fast and longstanding return to function.
Joanne has a calming demeanour and cheerful personality that make people instantly comfortable with her. She has a natural talent for understanding the needs of individual clients, and therefore provides a unique treatment suited to each client's preferences and needs.
