Kyrill Fourik RMT Downtown Vancouver-an alumnus of the Registered Massage Therapy Program at the Vancouver Career College. He passed his board examination with the College of Registered Massage Therapists of BC in 2017 and has practiced as an RMT in Port Moody and Vancouver since that time. His clinical experience includes outreaches at the BC Women’s Hospital, Positive Living, Vancouver General Hospital, Dania and Normanna health facilities. He treated patients who suffered from conditions such as Parkinsons Disease, Fibromyalgia, Arthritis, Ankylosing Spondylitis, Carpal Tunnel Syndrome, Multiple Sclerosis and more. Additionally, over the past two years, he’s had a great deal of experience in treating ICBC patients. Some of the common injuries related to ICBC patients include disc herniation, whiplash, nerve damage and severe headaches.
Kyrill uses his intuition and critical thinking to define the root of the problem. His approach consists of completing a quick questionnaire and assessing his patients, followed by developing a treatment plan based on the patient’s goals. Kyrill delivers effective treatments to his patients by coupling techniques such as myofascial approach with proprioceptive neuromuscular facilitation and joint mobilization. Each treatment is followed by a review of homecare to support one to live a healthy and balanced lifestyle.
Life, Interests and Hobbies
From a very young age, Kyrill has always been active and passionate about working with his hands. Sports such as basketball, soccer, and football were a considerable part of his life as he was growing up. The discipline associated with sports taught Kyrill a valuable life lesson. Especially basketball, as Kyrill, devoted most of his childhood and adolescence on training. In his early years, Kyrill represented The Drive, basketball team. This team represented BC and played against similar teams and players from around the world. Intense, prolonged training took a beating on Kyrills body. He received numerous treatments from physiotherapists, chiropractors and massage therapists during his adolescence. After experiencing multiple injuries to his body, he began to build an interest in the medical field.
Kyrill finds balance through family, friends, sports and helping others. He is forever grateful to have found a profession that he genuinely enjoys. Kyrill is honoured to be an RMT and feels as though it is his duty in life to help others.
