Our Team

Joshua L'Heureux, RMT

Joshua has returned to his hometown of Penticton by way of Edmonton, where he worked intensively with some of the nation's top teams and athletes. Quickly finding his niche in BC working with the Vees and other local athletes/organizations, Joshua's clinical practice focuses on an educational model. He takes pride in his interview skills, asking the appropriate questions to identify why a patient is experiencing pain the way they are. His recent educational explorations include specific training in the field of pain science.

 

Josh's treatment model is simple: identify if the patient is "hurting or injured", discover the lifestyle factors that contribute to the pain, use massage to provide a window of relief and, finally, educate the patient on how to desensitize the nervous system in order to permanently reduce their symptoms.
