I’m Britt Leeworthy RMT, R.Ac
I’m here to help you optimize your health, prevent or recover from injury and get out of pain so that you can get back to crushing your goals and achieving whatever it is you want out of life.
Unraveling the interconnected puzzle of the human body is my jam. Each person and health problem brings a unique combination of symptoms and experiences, and my job is to weed through them and piece things together so that we can get to the root of your issue once and for all.
My interest in preventative and complementary medicines naturally arose as the child of a parent living with a chronic illness. I was well aware of the deficiencies in our conventional medical systems from a young age and understood the importance of filling that gap. To not only prevent or recover from illness but also to improve the quality of life for those already faced with a diagnosis.
I started with the Registered Massage Therapy program at the West Coast College of Massage Therapy in 2011, obtaining my RMT license in 2014. That same year, I completed my first Yoga Teacher Training, and in 2017 I studied Acupuncture and Chinese Medicine at the PCU College of Holistic Medicine, obtaining my Acupuncture Licence almost a decade away from where my education began.
I offer comprehensive care for all types of complex pain patterns and health conditions, with a keen focus on complex pain, and stress-induced illness. My goal is for you to leave my office feeling understood, supported, and equipped with the knowledge to move forward, with a plan you might even feel excited about.
In my free time, I try my best not to study (I’ll admit, sometimes a losing battle) and get outside in the mountains as often as possible. We all live here for many of the same good reasons – fresh air, big mountains, vast forests, endless trails, and spending time with the ones we love and I’m grateful to share in these collective values that Whistler is made of.
Life Is short and you have so much to offer, so, let’s not waste any time. Taking your health into your own hands and making yourself a priority is the first step, and I’m here whenever you are ready.
