Frequently asked questions
You do not need a referral to see a Registered Massage Therapist as a private patient or if you are on MSP Premium Assistance. However, some extended health plans require you to have a referral as a condition of reimbursement. Check with your extended carrier as each carrier and plan is different.
- Doctor’s referral (if you have one)
- Care card number
- Bring in your benefits card with your id/plan number (see below for exceptions to direct billing)

New patients should complete an online intake form prior to their first clinic appointment.
Please arrive at least five minutes early on your first visit to fill out the consent form. You will complete the consent form at the beginning of the first appointment, before treatment starts, and potentially again during subsequent appointments if necessary.
Massage Therapy appointments will last the time requested at booking.
In most cases, yes. While we have a great health care system in BC, there are coverage limits for Massage Therapy.
Private payers and those using extended health plans are required to pay at the time of treatment.
I can direct-bill most extended health insurers, but there may still be a co-payment depending on how much your specific plan covers, and the maximums set by the insurer.
Jacquie is a native Vancouverite with 30 years massage experience in treating sports injuries, work-related injuries, and car accident trauma. She is a 1993 graduate from the West Coast College of Massage Therapy.
Her massage career began at the YMCA Sport Medicine clinic where she worked for 13 years. For the last 16 years, Jacquie has practiced in a multidisciplinary clinic in downtown Vancouver, which she opened and co-owned since 2007.
Jacquie is excited for this new opportunity to live and work in our Commercial drive community. Beginning in March 2023, she will start at both Trikinetic Massage Therapy Clinic and Commercial Drive Massage Therapy Clinic. Jacquie is looking forward to being a part of your wellness journey with both existing loyal clients and new clients.
Jacquie has taken many continuing education courses over the years to remain current with today’s massage therapy standards including:
- muscle energy technique
- neuromuscular therapy
- somatovisceral release
- myofascial release
- trigger point release
- craniosacral massage
She incorporates techniques she has learned when applicable.
Her primary treatment style is targeted deep pressure trigger point release with some deep Swedish massage, stretching, muscle energy technique, and occasionally some cranial sacral therapy. These techniques result in relief from chronic pain related to injuries.
Jacquie has a well-rounded personality with many diverse interests. Her love for sports goes back to her youth when she was both a competitive and recreational athlete in swimming, skiing, curling, goal ball, and track and field.successfully

Jacquie works alongside her 2-year-old yellow lab working guide dog named Gratitude. They both respectfully ask that you understand that Gratitude is also working while she is in the clinic and that you not engage with her while you are together in the treatment room. She is very good and lies on her rug most of the time, with the occasional stretch and reposition. It will be hard to resist her because she is a beautiful sweet girl; however, it is important to remember that Gratitude’s primary purpose is to insure Jacquie’s safety. Gratitude really likes to make friends which could ultimately jeopardize both of them in their travels. Thank you from both of them.
