Dave Veenstra RMT

I’m David Veenstra, a Registered Massage Therapist. I’ve been treating for 15 years, helping active individuals like yourself stay outside, where they want to be. I’ve been out there myself for as long as I can remember; competitive volleyball, amateur body building, biking across Canada, lake swimming and most recently, crossfit. Ironman’s on my bucket list. I specialize in Sports and Deep Tissue Massage and take seriously your passion to move! “The weekend of my first massage with him, I ended up having the fastest bike split by almost a minute and a half in the North Shore Sprint. After that I was sold. I went to see Dave the week before every race last season and also saw him after my big training weekends. Aside from giving a really good sport specific massage, I have also found Dave to be a very useful source of information. I’ve asked him about how to deal with different aches and pains and he was always able to provide me with some great insight and methods on how to address them.” ~ Dylan Gleeson | Triathlete “He consistently asked for feedback on the pressure. He asked appropriate questions, gave advice that fell within his knowledge parameters and delivered a perfect massage which achieved the goal I had for it. He did more listening than talking and when he spoke, he spoke about things he was qualified to speak about. He did the exact job he was hired for. Bravo.” ~ Meyrick Jones | ParaTriathlete, ParaCyclist, and Para Nordic Ski
