Jomell de Grano, RMT
Jomell is a graduate from Langara College’s 3200 hour Registered Massage Therapy program. During his time at school, he gained an appreciation for the positive effects of massage on a diversity of clients, especially pre and post natal patients. Through various community outreaches, including West Vancouver Senior Activity Center, Harbour Dance Studio, Vancouver General’s Spinal Cord Injury Center, and St. John’s Hospice, Jomell learned to adapt his treatment to best suit the individual’s needs.
Jomell believes the body must be treated as a whole in order to address imbalances that may be present. Swedish massage, joint mobilizations, myofascial, and active release techniques are incorporated intoevery treatment to help the body effectively heal and restore to optimal function.
When he’s not in the clinic, Jomell enjoys cooking, cycling, rock climbing, and going to the gym.
