Meet Our Registered Massage Therapists
The owner of Phi Massage & Well-being Center, Britta has been in practice since 1998. She decided to pursue a career in the medical field after her mothers experience with cancer. This has given Britta a very compassionate and balanced approach to utilizing massage therapy as a modality to work towards optimal health. Britta is currently working in Sidney, BC. Please contact her directly for more details.
Britta believes passionately in the art of massage to reconnect with ourselves and draw out the essence of who we are and what we are each capable of. Massage is a modality that draws from many rich resources - everything from Western allopathic to Eastern alternative and from anatomically based to energy-work. Britta is continually exploring different training to work with the human body using all of these different approaches.
She has completed training with:
• John Barnes Myofascial Release I, II and Unwinding

• Geoff Gluckman’s Muscle Balance and Function
• Dr. Vodder’s Manual Lymph Drainage
• PSYCH-K ™
• Dr. Mishra’s Marma Therapy
• Visceral Manipulation with Heather Inglis & Natale Rao
• Self Regulation Therapy
And draws heavily from Myofascial Release, Craniosacral Therapy and Visceral Manipulation.
Britta has also studied principles of Neuromuscular Technique, Muscle Energy Technique, Personal Training and Fitness, Consegrity, Acupressure, Shiatsu, Traditional Chinese Medicine, Healing Touch, Emotional Freedom Technique, Yoga, NLP, Meditation, Reiki, Aromatherapy, Reflexology and Visualization Techniques. She is always collecting tools to draw from for her own health as well as her practice.
As a Practitioner, Britta has her own unique style that can be gentle, yet effective. She draws from the variety of modalities she has studied to create unique experiences for every person that comes in to see her, every time they come in. It is a dance that is created between her hands and your body with clinical expertise and human compassion.
Britta has an extensive, dedicated clientle that she has worked with over her 14 years of practicing. She enjoys working with all kinds of people with all kinds of concerns - from acute/specific to chronic/diffuse. She has extensive experience in working with systemic conditions. Britta welcomes individuals that have tried everything else and would like to explore a new approach.
Britta had been inspired to share her passion for massage therapy with the students of the West Coast College of Massage Therapy-Victoria Campus until 2008 and taught Myofascial Release-a modality she draws heavily from in her own practice.
