As a graduate of Vancouver College of Massage Therapy in 2014, Arthur has the experience to employ a highly intuitive style of assesment and treatment. Having continued his education post graduation, he can choose from a plethora of massage techniques including the more subtle and gentle, like Fascial Stretch Therapy, and Biodynamic Myofascial Mobilization. He can also apply the more intense styles, like Very Deep MFR, and Active Trigger Point Release.

Behzad Azari

Massage Therapist

After working a few months as a bodyworker, I decided to pursue professional massage therapy. I liked massage and due to market demand, schedule flexibility, I decided to invest almost three years of my life to get an education in Vancouver Career College and eventually got my RMT certificate from CMTBC in November 2022.
As an intern student massage therapist, I completed 330 hours of supervised hands-on practice and after registration I have served roughly 300 hours of practice as an entry level RMT.
Becoming a massage therapist was a big change as prior to massage therapy I worked in different fields like oil industry, project management and business owner.I am enjoying the job so far and stopped almost everything else to make time for this Therapeutic massage is what I prefer and would offer in different locations that I am working now.I work in Vancouver, North Vancouver and West Vancouver.
According to college of massage therapists of BC a massage therapist cannot market him/her self for specific type of service but in general massage therapy can help to reduce pain, increase mobility, reduce stress and increase quality of sleep; and that is about what i tell my clients if asked what kind of massage or outcome they should expect. Massage Therapy in BC is limited to body soft tissue and joints only and that is my scope of practice.
