Tosh Brinker RMT
Tosh is a graduate of the Okanagan Valley College of Massage Therapy program, who completed his RMT education and registration in 2021. Throughout his schooling and his practice, he can be known for his great understanding of human anatomy and application of clinical assessment which he uses to work together with his patients. Tosh is passionate about helping his patients achieve their goals whether it is to restore optimal function and prevent injury, promote stress reduction, or improve body and kinesthetic awareness.
Within treatment, you can expect patient-centred care which initially will include a short interview, general postural assessment, range of motion testing and appropriate orthopedic testing to have a clear picture of the patient’s limitations and course of pain. Tosh uses a blend of evidence-based, therapeutic techniques including myofascial release, swedish massage, neuromuscular therapy, trigger point therapy, joint mobilizations, muscle energy, active and passive release techniques. Reassessment and post-assessment is incorporated into treatments when necessary to evaluate the progression of the patient’s recovery. Patient’s can also expect an effective remedial home care plan which will include relevant strengthening or stretching exercises or hydrotherapy recommendations that will prolong the benefits of their treatments and assist with rehabilitation, working towards the patient’s health goals.
Tosh enjoys putting time into his career but outside of the treatment room, he likes staying active by weight training and playing sports such as basketball, soccer and golf, and getting outdoors to enjoy skiing, biking, and hiking.

Victoria Clayton RMT
As an athlete for most of her life the human body has always fascinated Victoria. Through her own experience with injuries she learned how amazingly the human body can heal itself if given the tools.
Victoria started her post-secondary education at McMaster University and graduated in 2013 with a Bachelor of Arts in psychology. From there she took classes in addiction related courses and graduated with an addictions education certificate in 2014. After learning about therapy from the psychological perspective she wanted to learn more about the physical aspect as well. At that point Victoria enrolled in massage therapy and after two years graduated with a massage therapy diploma from the Okanagan Valley College of Massage Therapy.
Entering the field of massage therapy allowed Victoria to learn more about the human body in the sense of its anatomy and physiology, while simultaneously providing the tools to aid in the restoration of health for others. The key to treatment for Victoria is finding the root of the dysfunctions and working along side clients to correct them through manual treatment, therapeutic exercises and education.
When not in a treatment room Victoria can be found participating in powerlifting, on the top of a mountain, in a yoga class or simply exploring the beautiful city of Kelowna. Victoria looks forward to meeting all of you and being an influential part of your healthcare team.

In 2007, I went to study in Boulder Colorado and San Francisco at the International Cycling Institute to become a professional master bike fitter. Upon my graduation, I became Calgary’s top bike fitting expert and held the title as the only dynamic bike fitter (using video, motion capture) in western Canada. In 2008 I got my level 1 FaCT coaching and physiologic testing certification. From 2007-2011 I continued to deliver top-level bike fitting and built a business coaching triathletes.
