Massage Therapists and Acupuncturists in Victoria


Cheri Moore


Cheri is a proud transplanted East Coaster! Like a true East Coaster, she has a love of the outdoors and anything that pushes her physically, whether it be rowing on Elk lake, running the trails with her young pup Braeloan or renovating her 1913 Heritage house. Cheri has always been an athlete. She played varsity volleyball and competed for Canada in the sport of rowing. It was during her years as a high performance rower that she first experienced the benefits of massage therapy. Since that time she has completed a 1500 hr massage course in San Diego, California (1997) and a 3000 hr program at the West Coast College of Massage Therapy in Victoria (2002). Over the last 14 years Cheri has treated a wide variety of patients and gained valuable experience in the treatment of sports injuries, systemic issues, arthritis, shoulder, hip and knee replacements. She has worked with junior, senior and the “super senior” athletes as well as the general public and weekend warriors. Cheri has developed a style of massage that focuses on joint mobility and soft tissue release using techniques learned from arthrokinematics, NMT, COMT, SM and kinesio taping. Cheri believes in a multifaceted approach to treating her patients and working closely with other healthcare practitioners including Physiotherapists, Chiropractors and other exercise rehab specialist. Cheri also has a keen wit and loves to problem solve and if you choose to book with her she also promises to explain what all those abbreviations stand for 😀

Alison Child


A graduate of West Coast College, Vancouver, Alison Child has been a registered massage therapist since 1992.

With a BA in dance, she has always been inspired by the expression of the moving body and its implications to overall health. Wishing to explore the potency of the mind/body connection she became a certified Hellerwork practitioner in 1998 and incorporates that knowledge within her sessions. Since 2006, Alison has also been immersed in the study of Visceral Manipulation, a gentle osteopathic technique that addresses restrictions in many forms of connective tissue.

Wendy McVicar


How do you sum up a career that spans over three decades? Wendy’s interest in helping people started with a social science degree from the University of Toronto. She worked with new immigrants from around the world and then returned to college to study and work in fine craft and design for several years. Attending Sutherland-Chan School of Massage Therapy (1984-5) was a way to combine her creative interest in things “hand-made” with the desire to help others in a profession that Buddhists would call “right livelihood.”

With the right intention, technique and communication, pain relief and relaxation are her guiding principles. Swedish massage, acupressure, myofascial release, deep tissue techniques and Kinesio taping are used according to client preference. Wendy welcomes the opportunity to work with you regardless of your age or fitness level.

Chad Gottfried


Growing up as an Air Force brat, living from coast to coast in Canada, Chad finally decided to settle in Victoria in 1990 where he received a biology degree from the University of Victoria. He has since fulfilled his lifelong dream of cycling across Canada and expanded his worldview by travelling beyond our borders including India where he was fortunate to personally meet the Dalai Lama. So like many things in his life, Chad approaches massage therapy from many different perspectives. He first discovered massage therapy to be an essential part of success as an athlete including being a former national level competitive road and track cyclist, in particular he found it key to his rapid recovery after being hit by a car while cycling. As a certified yoga instructor and long time meditation practitioner, Chad also believes massage therapy to be an integral component of well-being from a mind-body perspective.

Being a kinesthetic learner and keen problem solver, with a deep desire to help others culminated into the journey of becoming a “new-old” graduate of the West Coast College of Massage Therapy in Victoria (2017). Combining his own experience in massage therapy as an athlete with the latest manual skills techniques, Chad is excited in working with his patients towards their goals.

A prairie boy at heart, Vince moved to Victoria in 1980 from Regina Saskatchewan. Vince retired in April 2023 after working for over 34 years with the BC Government. He has a lifelong passion for health and wellness and enjoys helping others to give back to themselves, whether on a healing journey or taking time to relax.

Vince enjoys spending some quiet time on the lake with his 17-foot Nova Craft canoe and spending time in his garden. Camping, hiking, fishing, exploring the outdoors and travel are some of his favourite activities. Vince and his partner spent many years renovating their 1912 home and currently run an Airbnb just a short walk from the clinic.
