She is dedicated to the health and well-being of her clients and enjoys all types of treatments including sports, therapeutic, deep tissue, and relaxation style treatments to alleviate acute or chronic pain and dysfunction.  Tracy has taken extra training on working with the fascial system to release scar tissue and adhesions within the connective tissue of the body.  Tracy provides clients with various stretching and strengthening exercises to assist them with their wellness goals and her training as a fitness instructor helps determine the appropriate exercises for her clients.  Tracy obtained her bachelor of health science degree from Thompson Rivers University in 2009.  Tracy has also been a certified Jazzercise instructor since 2009. She loves being a mother to her son, Robbie; and enjoys being active outdoors with her chocolate lab, Tucker.


Joanna Proracki, RMT

Joanna is a 2014 graduate of WCCMT, Victoria B.C. Her training and clinical experience have led to a focused interest in working with scar tissue and adhesions, myofascial conditions, anxiety, and pre and post-natal therapies.  She has worked with patients with Parkinson’s, MS, dementia, fibromyalgia, arthritis, repetitive strain injuries, and anxiety, and has found it a fascinating and ongoing learning experience.  Joanna concentrates on clear communication and attentiveness to build an effective program for her patients, both at the clinic and at home.  Joanna enjoys running, being outdoors and exploring Vancouver Island with her husband and two children.  

Kirsten Spouler, RMT

Kirsten is a graduate of West Coast College of Massage Therapy’s 3000-hour program, 2009. Her treatment approach is geared specific to you, utilizing a variety of modalities including myofascial, trigger point therapy, active and passive stretching, joint mobilization, deep tissue release, and abdominal massage. She takes an interest in patient education, anatomy, and postural awareness to help further accelerate a pain free lifestyle.

Kirsten has worked as an educator at Vancouver college of Massage Therapy and at Langara College. Her interest in anatomy led her to take part in a forearm and hand dissection in 2011, a 3-day human dissection course in 2012, and a 2-day anterior thorax and organ dissection in 2014, where she had the opportunity to further her knowledge greatly in the human body.

When not at the clinic you can find Kirsten in the kitchen making something delicious, crafting, or walking her cats with her partner Nathan. (No, seriously, they really like it!) '.


Chad Gottfried, BSc, RMT 

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.
