OUR VANCOUVER MASSAGE THERAPISTS
Nathan Heida, Registered Massage Therapist
Originally from Ontario, Nathan started his career as an RMT there graduating from the Ontario College of Health and Technology in 2011. Working there for just over 3 years in a multi-disciplinary clinic setting treating workplace, mva, and sports related injuries. However, the call to be closer to the outdoors was too strong and he moved out of province to Lake Louise and Banff where he continued working as an RMT while spending his free time backpacking, camping, hiking, and skiing for another 3 years before he landed in Vancouver still taking advantage of all the outdoor activities it has to offer.
Nathan enjoys being active, discovering new places and learning new things. Whether outside in the wilderness, with sports, or by returning to school in 2019 to become an Osteopathic Practitioner. He enjoys helping people whether it is returning from an injury to functioning in everyday life with chronic problems or even just managing stress and general maintenance.
Let him know your needs and he will do his best to help you with your treatment goals. He has experience in both clinical and spa settings and likes to incorporate both of these as well as what he is currently learning in school into his treatments to help the client get the most beneficial treatment for them.
Kristie Campbell, RMT
Kristie graduated from Langara’s Registered Massage Therapy Program in December 2020 and received her certificate of registration in May 2021. During her two-year program, Kristie gained experience working with a wide variety of conditions.
A lover of yoga, Kristie has always had a passion for fitness and human anatomy. She has experience working with athletes from all different backgrounds. Kristie believes to see success in manual therapy there must be trust and understanding between herself and her clients. That relationship is especially important to Kristie and guides her practice.
Spending time in 2019 at ICORD (International Collaboration on Repair Discoveries) gave Kristie the ability to work with neurological deficits in the Physical Activity Research Center. Later, while the world paused in Summer 2020 Kristie began volunteering at a neurological rehabilitation clinic where she found a passion in helping those suffering from neurological deficits. The opportunity was invaluable. So much knowledge and experience gained whilst learning from a team of experienced professional physiotherapists and kinesiologists. A curious brain always excited to learn more, Kristie continues to challenge herself to study and learn from her clients.
Kristie genuinely cares about her clients no matter what their condition or severity of dysfunction. Anywhere from a relaxation massage to highly specific focused care. Treatments may include Swedish, myofascial, visceral, joint play, trigger point therapy, rehabilitative exercises, and patient education.
Clients describe Kristie’s style as “Gentle, yet strong and supportive.” Kristie has experience with a wide variety of conditions but always sees the client as a person, putting their goals and expectations as the top priority.
Carlos Becerra, Registered Massage Therapist, Registered Acupuncturist
Carlos’ goal is to help people recover from musculoskeletal issues characterized by pain and dysfunction, so they return to the activities they enjoy. His focus is treating headaches, neck, shoulder and back pain, MVA and whiplash injuries, hip issues, sciatica, upper and lower limbs.
Scott Spulnick, Registered Massage Therapist
Originally from small town Manitoba, Scott spent his 20’s traveling around the world. After a successful career in hospitality management led to traveling throughout Canada, Scott began a career in health and fitness as a personal trainer in Toronto in 2012. This shift ignited a drive to continue to grow which led to graduating from the 2750 hour RMT program at Vancouver Career College in 2018 with honours as Valadictorian, and will culminate in pursuing an Osteopathic Practitioner designation beginning November ’19.
Very active throughout life in all types of sports, from curling and ultimate frisbee to wakeboarding, basketball and everything between. Scott has an interest in treating sports related conditions as well as overuse and traumatic injuries. With a strong focus on patient education and rehabilitative exercises, “Returning people to their full function and striving to exceed their expectations for themselves is what drives me to learn and grow”.

Kate Taylor, Registered Massage Therapist
