Donna is a graduate of Vancouver College of Massage Therapy (VCMT). Prior to becoming an RMT, and following her passion for running and triathlon, Donna enjoyed a career as a run specialty representative for such companies as Adidas and Asics. Eventually though, she and her husband decided to step down from their careers in order to fulfill their dream of travel. They quit their jobs, put all of their possessions into storage, said goodbye to family and friends and took off to travel around the world for two years.

Upon her return to Vancouver and having been inspired as a long-time client of Movéo, Donna decided to go back to school to become an RMT. She feels she has finally found her calling and is excited about helping others, just as the team at Movéo has helped her over the years.

Whatever your treatment goals may be, whether it’s staying healthy and pain free, recovering from an injury, managing chronic pain or stress reduction, Donna will start with a full assessment and design a treatment plan to help you achieve your goals. Her treatments are tailored to individual needs by incorporating a variety of techniques such as Trigger Point Release, Direct Fascial Techniques, Deep Tissue, Muscle Energy Techniques, and Joint Mobilizations, blended with various Swedish techniques.

Donna is particularly interested in helping athletes recover from sports related injuries so that they can get back to doing what they love. She also has experience treating postural dysfunctions, adhesive capsulitis, carpal tunnel syndrome, thoracic outlet syndrome, back and neck pain, tendinopathies, headaches and many other conditions

When Donna isn’t at Movéo, you’ll find her running the north shore trails or travelling around BC in her camper van.

First time appointment today with RMT Taylor. I was very impressed; she took the time to review and assess my needs. Very friendly, polite, professional, knowledgeable and… a great sense of humour. Their facility is overly exceptionally clean. They take the Covid protocol very seriously hence I feel very comfortable going there. It’s only been approximately two months since I starting attending Moveo, but it feels like I have been going there for years.

I love going here for my Physio! Georgina is very accommodating and welcoming with a big smile. Rob is very smart, knows his craft and bonus he is actually funny. I have seen so many physio but so far he is the “BEST”!! . I highly recommend Moveo.

This clinic is top notch. I’ve had both RMT and physio treatments at this location. Rob (PT) is very thorough, friendly, knowledgeable, and has a great sense of humor (the accent is dodgy 😉 ! Megan (RMT) is fabulous – her technique is great and she has a very caring approach. The receptionist, Georgina, is lovely,…very friendly and welcoming. The clinic is bright, clean, and has top of the line equipment. I highly recommend this clinic to anyone looking for treatments.

Excellent clinic. From the moment you walk in, to the moment you step out the door you will have nothing but a positive experience. My daughter and I see Richard one of the RMT’s and he is incredible. Extremely knowledgeable in way of injury rehabilitation! I have recommended many people to Richard and they have all had great experiences.

I have been fortunate enough to be receiving well needed Physio treatments from Rob. He is totally amazing, very knowledgeable, up on all the latest techniques, and professional to name a few attributes. Another employee with a great sense of humour!! Rob incorporates a variety of treatments that are specifically geared to whatever is needed to enhance one’s healing.

I’ve been seeing Dr Turner for years and there isn’t anyone else I would trust more with my health. This is a fantastic facility with very helpful front end staff that.

Physiotherapist Rob is amazing. He accurately assessed my injury & PT need, then developed a successful plan that led to a full recovery.
