Jessica Anderson, RMT

Jessica grew up in Kamloops and graduated from the Okanagan Valley College of Massage Therapy in 2015.

Jessica has always had an interest in human anatomy and the bodies ability to recover. She focuses her practice on helping people manage their orthopaedic conditions both chronic and acute, and providing home-care suggestions for healing and maintenance. Each patient receives individualized care according to the symptoms and history they present with. Treatments generally consist of a blended variety of massage techniques such as Myofascial Release, Trigger Point Therapy, Manual Lymphatic Drainage, Deep Tissue Massage, and Swedish techniques. Her therapeutic treatment style is often grounded with the focus on relaxation and alleviation of stress associated with chronic pain, or the stresses of daily life.

Jessica is interested in a wide variety of conditions including but not limited to: headaches, sports injuries, injury prevention, alignment issues, accident trauma, repetitive strain, scoliosis, chronic disease, congestion issues such as sinusitis, edema, and lymphedema. Jessica has found a special interest in the relationship that stress, anxiety and depression have with chronic and acute pain, and takes these factors into consideration during treatments.

When she is not practicing massage therapy, Jessica is busy staying active mountain biking, hiking, skiing and spending time with family. She is excited to be practicing out of Fusion Health Clinic, and is currently accepting new patients!

I am a registered clinical counsellor (#12070) with a Master’s degree in Counselling Psychology, and have 20 years of experience working with children, youth and families as an educator, and 10 years experience in counselling. I provide individual therapy for youth and adults and support them to open themselves to regain their strength and potential. I work collaboratively with client’s and respect their freedom and responsibility in the process.

We all experience pain, hardship and difficult life situations, and we often reach the point where it can feel unmanageable. I realize that it is not easy to reach out for support, and this takes courage and understanding. As a counsellor, I support clients to develop greater sense of self-awareness, tap into their strengths and resources, and navigate their thoughts and emotions to take on challenges and overcome them. I specialize in a variety of issues including: anxiety, depression, trauma, personal growth, self-esteem, avoidance behaviors, relationships, and grief and loss.

I have a client centered approach to counselling, and utilize a variety of therapeutic approaches including acceptance and commitment therapy, cognitive behavioral therapy, solution-focused, interpersonal, mindfulness, etc. I regard the client as an equal in the therapy process. Emotional well-being and mental health influence our general health and how we interact with others, make decisions, face challenges, and live our lives. I believe that freedom in life, even with painful challenges, is possible, and everyone has the ability to live the life they want.
