Yukari Vanstone, RMT

Registered Massage Therapist

Hi, my name is Yukari Vanstone. I graduated from VCMT. Before becoming an RMT, I had been working as a bodyworker at spas in Vancouver and Japan for over 15 years doing reflexology, hot stone, Lomi lomi, Ayurvedic ,Reiki, Shiatsu, and Thai massage, etc. With that experience, combined with my formal training as an RMT, I belive I can make clients comfortable, safe, and relaxed using a wide range of techniques. After operating as a sole-propriter for the past several years to expand my services welcome clients to the brand new Four Stones Massage Therapy location! At Four Stones, I'm excited to continue to work on clients using therapeutic skills such as joint mobilization, trigger points, neuromuscular technique, active release, PNF stretching, and IASTM gained through training and experience. Originally from Japan, I have spent the past 17 years living in Canada with my husband and two children. I love living here. I am looking forward to seeing you at the new location!
