From the staff to the beauty of the place, this one is top in my books. I’ve gone to many different RTMs over the years, with varying experiences, but all 3 RMTs that I’ve seen at Alpine were consistently great – listened so well, genuinely wanted to help, knew what they were doing, able to apply good pressure and one even gave me some good guidance to help with my chiro appointment to find out what’s going on. I’ve gone both for a back injury and just regular maintenance as a desk worker. Highly recommend.

I had a great experience with Alpine Massage, from the welcoming and calming environment to my treatment with Samantha. She made sure to understand my goals, what issues I’ve been having and what I was looking for during my session. I left feeling much more relaxed, and saw improvements in my workout performance in the weeks following. I would highly recommend Alpine and Samantha – I can’t wait for my next session!

My partner had a couple massage therapies here; both times he had brand new RMT’s who didn’t listen very well to him. Not acceptable given they are charging a premium for the massages.He mentioned it was noisy in the rooms as there is a lot of construction going on nearby. He came back more stressed than when he left to get the treatment.

Alpine Massage is fantastic: booking is easily done online and availability is much better than most places. They ask a lot of questions during the first session to ensure they understand your pain points and needs, and during the treatment session, I definitely felt they were addressing my chronic lower back and shoulder pain. My RMT, Kimberly, uses just the right amount of pressure to feel like my muscle tensions are being released but not so much that I’m dying from the pain.Only complaint I have is parking: I couldn’t figure out if the underground parking is available (clinic is attached to ambulance station). If you’re going at a busy time, you may need to budget a bit more time to find street parking and walking to the clinic. Small detail for an otherwise great clinic!

I had two fantastic massage therapy sessions at Alpine massage therapy. Once with Elsie and once with Sophie. Both sessions were amazing and helped greatly with my pain and stress. Highly recommended!

I came up with this place on Google Maps within walking distance and thought I give them a try. I didn’t know any of their therapists, so I booked an appointment with Elsie Webber. When she finished her job, I had my best massage therapy experience EVER. When I went to book more sessions, I found their schedules quite busy. Not a surprise, though 😊I kept booking weekly appointments with Elsie for a while. She is amazingly skillful, professional and precise. She well knows how to treat every single muscle over your body. You don’t know how stiff some of your deep muscles could be until she makes you feel them. I can’t recommend her enough.The place itself is spotless, quiet and cozy. All of the staff are very friendly. I love this place and recommend them to anyone looking for a massage therapist around Kits and Arbutus Ridge.

Amy does an amazing job. The atmosphere in the studio is relaxing and comfortable. I fell asleep during my massage. Definitely recommend Amy for RMT.

I was scheduled with Elsie for a 30 minute massage. I have been really tense and sore lately from cycling and long hours at my desk and I instantly felt at ease and relaxed after my massage. She knew which areas needed extra pressure and always checked in to see how I was handling it. It was such a great experience and I definitely will be scheduling with her again!

Amy is the best. I can quite honestly say it’s hard to find an RMT that will not give you just a relaxing massage, but one that also actually works out the muscle and back issues I have with Scoliosis. Always gives service with a warm, welcoming smile.

If you haven’t already seen Amy at Alpine Massage Therapy, what are you doing?! Once I found Amy I’ve never looked back, I’ve recommended her to everyone I know who needs an RMT, she is so friendly, thorough, and always listens to what you are feeling in your body and gives advice on stretches and techniques to help tight areas to help alleviate issues between visits. She is the best!

This place is FANTASTIC. It’s cute and soothing and Amy is quick and attentive. My massage was excellent! I left feeling relaxed with no tension in my muscles or joints. Amy always take time to listen to everything I needed done and applies just the right amount of pressure when needed. I highly recommend this place for a good massage…I can say it with full confidence that Amy is the best massage therapist I’ve been going to longest time and highly recommend her and her team.
