From a young age, Anders often found himself providing hands-on relief for friends and family. He was fortunate enough to discover the profession of Massage Therapy and develop a career from his passion.
As a singer, computer enthusiast and occasional athlete, Anders’ variety of activities and experiences have allowed him to anticipate and address a range of conditions, from sports injuries to work fatigue. In fact, Anders’ research into vocal dysfunction earned him a scholarship from the Massage Therapists’ Association of BC.
Anders often integrates homecare activities into his treatments, as he feels that educated and empowered patients stay healthier for longer with reduced injury recurrence.
His goal is for patients to finish their therapies with the tools and confidence to maintain their health for years, rather than days or weeks.
When he isn’t zooming to and from his clinics on his bicycle, Anders sings with the Vancouver Bach Choir chamber group Sarabande and trains in Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu with Budo Martial Arts.
