Hello my name is Li Yuan and I have been practicing as a massage therapist for about 6 years now. My journey as a massage therapist began in my hometown in China, where I worked in a chiropractic office that specializes in traditional Chinese medicine and acupuncture to help patients recover from their injuries and assist with healing.
Upon moving to the United States, I attended Golden Bridge College in Los Angeles, CA where I completed my 750 hours of massage therapy studies and passed the Massage and Bodyworks Licensing Examination in 2016.
Following my massage schooling, I worked in a Spa environment for about three years in Coronado, CA before recently moving to my home here in Vancouver and planting roots here at Back & Neck Care Chiropractic.
I specialize in therapeutic deep tissue, sports, shiatsu and Swedish massage techniques. My favorite part of my work as a massage therapist is assisting the healing process by working out the problem areas and relaxation. When I am not working, I enjoy spending time with family and working in my garden.
