Chandra Shekhar, BA, MBA, RMT (Clinical)
With an extensive educational background and over 35 years of experience in various techniques of clinical massage therapy, yoga, stress and pain management in both India and Canada, Chandra (RMT) is highly qualified to determine patient needs and requirements. Chandra’s Canadian massage training was at MaKami College in Edmonton and included the 3000 hour Advanced Clinical Massage program.
His extensive clinical training allows him to customize patient care using relaxation, therapeutic, and orthopedic massage for chronic pain, sports injuries, personal and motor vehicle accidents and trauma, post surgical rehabilitation, and pre and post natal, post traumatic stress, and in the support of cancer patients. His unique training and experience in the use of essential oils sets him apart from his peers and greatly enhances his patient’s overall experience.
Other techniques that he employs include Hot stone massage, Lymphatic drainage, cupping, trigger point therapy, and traditional Indian head massage.
Chandra’s philosophy of health and wellness resides in achieving balance in mind, body, and spirit by providing treatment techniques based on the needs and conditions of his patients within his massage practice. He sees this goal as a mutual effort between therapist and patient—treatments plans support patient’s needs. Chandra takes a collaborative approach in working with other healthcare professionals, including chiropractors, physicians, physiotherapists, and others.
Chandra believes that “it is the human touch that makes a huge difference in relieving many different forms of hidden and manifested pain.”
