Massage Therapy

Massage therapy can be effective for a number of issues, including muscle pain, muscle strain, chronic and acute biomechanical issues, and sports injuries just to name a few. If you are looking for a registered massage therapist, Tim Gropen at Burnaby Heights Chiropractic can help!

Tim understands that every client has different needs. He uses a variety of techniques to do everything he can tol help with whatever condition you are suffering from. Generally, he will treat the soft tissue structures in your body to provide you with relief. Treatment will focus on your muscles, joints, tendons, connective tissues, and ligaments to help decrease your pain and improve how your body is functioning, to help mediate and speed up the overall healing process.

Massage therapy can help with a number of conditions including stress, back pain, frozen shoulder, osteoarthritis, sciatica, muscle strains, and sports injuries, just to give a few examples. If you are suffering from any of these conditions, you should consider massage therapy for treatment because it is a safe and effective way to improve how you are. The effects of massage therapy are many. Reduced pain and inflammation, relaxation, muscle tension relief, greater flexibility and joint range of motion, and increased blood circulation are just a few of the benefits you may experience.

Another great thing about massage therapy treatment is that it can complement other forms of therapy like chiropractic care, acupuncture, and physiotherapy, to help speed up the recovery process. It may also help prevent injuries from reoccurring in the future which is an added bonus. Tim is highly skilled and will take the time to understand your concerns so that he can apply the right techniques. Each treatment will focus on your condition specifically so that you experience immediate relief.

Registered Massage Therapist


I've been in practice as an RMT for 17 years in Vancouver, and now Burnaby! My treatments are geared towards helping patients through a variety of conditions: motor vehicle accidents, sports injuries, TMJ and other chronic injuries. On the road to recovery I encourage my patients with stretching, remedial exercises and other forms of home care. I believe in a team approach to treatment and work with Chiropractors, Physiotherapists, Kinesiologists and other healthcare practitioners to help patients achieve their goals.
I typically use a number of treatment techniques during any one session.

Tim typically uses a number of treatment techniques during any one session. While he does use Swedish massage, joint mobilization, trigger point therapy and other techniques he does more Myofascial Release than anything else as he (and his patients) generally find it most effective at reducing pain and improving range of motion.

He believes that his patients should take responsibility for their health. While he is dedicated to helping them recover from injuries or to improve their performance ultimately it's up to them to maximize their health and wellness through exercise, stretching, sleeping enough (!), and eating sensibly.

He lives on Capitol Hill with his wife, Tracy, and our two boys, Sam and Nate. They love it there. They are very much a family about food and fun. When he is not in the clinic he likes to spend time surfing, playing hockey, playing Go, hiking, biking, watching movies and generally goofing off. Tracy and Tim also like to garden and spend time with family and friends making food and drinking wine.
