Tobin Sagara RMT

Tobin Sagara started in his first career as a programmer but found it unfulfilling. Having given massages to friends and family for years it was suggested that he look into Massage Therapy as his next career choice. Tobin decided to join the RMT program at the West Coast College of Massage Therapy in 2013. There he learned various modalities such as Swedish Massage, Deep Tissue, to Myofascial Release. Because everyone responds differently to treatment Tobin enjoys working with clients to figure out what techniques specifically work for them. He likes working with deep tissue through the shoulders and neck helping to relieve clients from stress and tension headaches. Tobin grew up in Toronto and has lived in Victoria since 1995. In his free time he enjoys photography and, on occasion, hitting the climbing gym.

Catriona Armour RMT

Catriona was born and raised in Kamloops, BC.  An airbrush artist by trade, she has always had a creative heart.  Looking for a career that would give back to her community yet continue to challenge her creative side, she enrolled in the West Coast College of Massage Therapy’s 2500 hour RMT program in 2016.  During her professional education, Catriona maintained Honours status throughout the program, was named Valedictorian of her class, and finally, was a recipient of the RMTBC Case Study Award Scholarship for her research on scar-release therapy and lymphatic drainage techniques.  Since all tissues respond differently, she uses a variety of treatment methods specifically tailored to each complaint. Catriona has a profound commitment to her profession and is excited to share her art of therapeutic touch with new patients.
