Eric Purves, RMT

Manual Therapist

I am a registered massage therapist, based in Victoria, BC Canada. In 2010, my business partner and I opened Achieve Health, a multidisciplinary healthcare clinic, offering 11 clinicians from 5 different health care professions; massage therapy, chiropractic, physiotherapy, and acupuncture.

My main area of clinical and rehabilitation interest is ‘Persistent Pain Management’, and I am a faculty member with PainBC, where I teach the workshop I helped create for RMT’s on pain management. I have also been invited to instruct pain management strategies for manual and movement therapists, at various events throughout Canada and the US.

I sit on the executive of our professional association’s (RMTBC) professional practice group (PPG) in pain management. The groups goal is to provide education, research and evidence based treatments for more effective pain management strategies in the manual and movement therapies.
