Karissa Parsons, RMT

Karissa Parsons has always had an interest in the function of the human body, how things work together and how one area can affect the body as a whole. When a friend told her about the massage therapy program, it didn’t take long for Karissa to be convinced it was going to be the right fit for her career. She graduated in 2016 from the 3000-hr Registered Massage Therapy program at OVCMT. 

Karissa’s skills of palpation help her assess what areas to focus on. She primarily uses myofascial release along with neuromuscular techniques and has a deeper therapeutic treatment style. Karissa wants her patients to leave feeling that the area of complaint was addressed, but that the compensating areas that you didn’t know needed work were also treated.

Karissa is born and raised in Kelowna, and she loves spending time with her friends and family. Most of Karissa’s time is spent with her husband and two little boys. A perfect day is a walk with the boys in the stroller, a good coffee, and some great conversation. She is excited to have the balance of life with little ones at home and getting to work with her hands and challenging her brain while helping her patients.
