Eric Purves, RMT

Manual Therapist

I am a registered massage therapist, educator and researcher based in Victoria, BC Canada. In 2010, my business partner and I opened Achieve Health, a large multidisciplinary healthcare clinic.

My main area of clinical and rehabilitation interest is ‘Persistent Pain Management’. I have been a faculty member with PainBC since 2016, where I teach a workshop for RMT’s on pain management. I also instruct courses on persistent pain, rehabilitation principles and evidence-based practice strategies for manual and movement therapists throughout Canada and the US.

In 2019 I received my master of rehabilitation science through UBC.  My graduate work focused on the role of RMTs in the healthcare system and how to use evidence based strategies to enhance research evidence in curriculum development and education delivery.
