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.

Life is an adventure and you never know what tomorrow brings!
From here to... the rest of the world! Being raised playing sports and exploring paid off! With a Bachelor’s Degree in Elementary Education from the University of Victoria I have lived and taught all over the world for 12 years, played varsity soccer- earned 7 concussions, volunteered on the auto extraction team/ swiftwater rescue, first responder’s helicopter rescue crew and land search and rescue teams, firefighting crews, pipeline crews and more. I have had channelled more energy into returning to school, graduating with Honors. Since graduating I have been busily working as a Registered Massage Therapist (2015) with competitive bodybuilders, doing rehabilitation work and deep sports massage with members of the Ontario Hockey League in Sarnia, Ontario, as well as athletes from a variety of sports and people with a large variety of interests and injuries. I did a competition in the physique category body building (and placed 1st twice) so I could understand what it was my clients go through for their shows- WOW – that was an experience in itself!
I have taken further studies in manual lymphatic drainage, Active Isolated Stretching, Fascial Stretch Therapy, rock blading and rock taping, and I enjoy furthering myself even more. I love my work and am excited to have purchased a home and moved back. I look forward to being here at Dr. Rowse’s clinic with awesome crew here!
