Meet Jonathan Paez
Registered Massage Therapist
Jonathan Paez has had an eclectic array of experiences that he brings together and focuses on how to help you feel your best. He devotes himself to understanding the human body and how to educate people about the vehicle that moves them. His ability to listen, problem solve, and piece the puzzle together is what he dedicates to the people that come to seek therapy with him.
Jonathan Paez was born in the Philippines and raised in Vancouver. He completed his Bachelor’s of Human Kinetics in 2007 from the University of British Columbia (UBC) and sparked a life-long passion for human sciences. Then Jonathan continued on to attain a Bachelor’s of Education from UBC in 2009 to compliment his other passions – education, youth work, and travel. He lived and worked in South Korea for several years, absorbing all he could about cultures, languages, and food. Upon his return to Canada, it was time to join the rehabilitation ranks.
Jonathan completed the massage therapy program through the Vancouver College of Massage Therapy (VCMT) in 2018 and graduated with honours. Then, he was able to combine two of his passions and became a part-time instructor at teaching human anatomy, physiology, and pathology. He works with all sorts of people in all sorts of ways and you had better believe he will continue to learn more about the human body to build on his skills as a massage therapist. More recently, Jonathan has begun his graduate studies in attaining a Master of Arts in Counselling Psychology in hopes of practicing as a Registered Clinical Counsellor in the near future in conjunction with participating in a 12-month Cranial Sacral Therapy mentorship program in order to enhance his understanding of the human body to better assist those with chronic pain and trauma. He hopes to apply a multi-dimensional approach to healing.
Jonathan himself has sought out all forms of paramedical and medical therapies from different parts of the world. He understands the uniqueness of the individual and supports all forms of therapies that best help each person. This is why he is excited to work at Life Integrative – to collaborate with a passionate and diverse team of healthcare professionals. Come for a treatment with Jonathan Paez and he will tirelessly use all of his knowledge and skills to help get you and your body to where you want to be.
