My name is Chris Reese. I moved to Williams Lake from Vancouver in 2011 and joined the Chiropractic Associates team. After living in the lake city for 6 months I met my fiancée. We are excited to settle down and start a family in the beautiful Cariboo.
I graduated from the West Coast College of Massage Therapy in 2009. While attending WCCMT, I worked with an extensive range of patients in my outreach training. My experience also includes work with the Vancouver Dragon Boat Festival, UBC Whitecaps Soccer Team, and the Women’s Olympic Softball Team. I have had the honor of treating top medalists and professional triathletes at the Oliver/Osoyoos Half Ironman and Penticton Ironman. I enjoy helping athletes achieve their peak performance both pre and post event.
I started my career as a certified Spa Practitioner and have worked within spas in Whistler, Kelowna, Penticton, White Rock, and Surrey. I have trained in shiatsu, reflexology, hot stone massage, Thai-yoga, Ayurveda, and aromatherapy. Having experienced the spa industry, I decided to advance my career by working with physiotherapists, chiropractors, and doctors. I completed a locum at a multi-disciplinary clinic in Surrey working with patients suffering from recent or chronic motor vehicle accident injuries; whiplash, severe muscle spasms, and chronic pain. This experience brought me to my passion for helping people with various conditions using my selective style of deep tissue/sports massage therapy. In 2014 I completed a fascial manipulation course to further my ability to treat chronic pain conditions with longer lasting results.
It gives me great pleasure to help people feel their best, and I have had many rewarding experiences in the health care profession. I look forward to continued work and growth within the wonderful community of Williams Lake.

Years ago I experienced a number of different soft tissue ailments and my curiosity led me to learning whatever I could to recover from my chronic back pain, tendinitis, whiplash, plantar fasciitis, etc. What stood out to me was how much my condition improved with the use of manual therapy, especially massage. The benefits I experienced made me think how great it would be to be able to help others with their own ailments. That’s what led me to exploring my opportunities within the health care field, and eventually made me choose to become a Massage Therapist.
I graduated from Okanagan Valley College of Massage Therapy in November 2018. During my time at OVCMT, I gathered valuable experience working with patients that were facing the challenges of post-accident recovery, pre and post-operative care, and conditions ranging from common to rare, such as plantar fasciitis, chronic back pain, frozen shoulder, thoracic outlet syndrome and more. I use a variety of techniques, including but not limited to: Swedish Massage, Joint Mobilization, Myofascial Release, Ischemic Trigger Point Release, and Facilitated Stretching.
Accurate assessment, proper treatment of affected tissues, and a professional relationship between patient and therapist are at the heart of my practice. I constantly look to improve my understanding of the human body and will soon be taking a course on the treatment of the thoracic spine and ribs. I look forward to working with you to meet your goals!
