Registered Massage Therapist
Dave Gifford graduated from the West Coast College of Massage Therapy in 2002. Since then, he's always remained active within the massage therapy profession.

He has also taken time to gather experience with the geriatric community, multiple sclerosis patients, workplace ergonomic set-ups, and the University of British Columbia athletic teams.
